Using iPhone as a USB disk, having SSH wireless access, custom ringtones, and many other benefits are something that the jailbreak community has long enjoyed. But what if you’re one of those who like to keep it original, or loyal to Apple, or just don’t want to jailbreak for whatever reason. What solution can you adopt?

iPhone Explorer allows you to not only access your device’s root partition on a USB interface, accessible through the File Explorer button, but also allows a user to upload or download pictures, music, videos, ringtones, SMS and email messages from their phones.


One of the main advantages here is that this tool allows a user not only to transfer media data to their iPhone, but also to retrieve it back to the computer. This can be really beneficial if you want to bypass using iTunes, or do not want your entire music library to be lost by an iTunes sync on a problematic device. iPhone Explorer also contains a built-in music player that can play songs directly from the device’s own music library. You also have the option to search for a particular track from the library.


Another interesting feature of this application is its custom ringtone creator. It allows you to use any unprotected audio file from your PC or from the iPhone’s audio library. The created ringtones can directly included to the iPhone’s ringtones. One difference from iTunes ringtone creator is that song duration is not restricted to 32 seconds as in iTunes.
