Put and view files on iPhone

Apple does not allow iPhone users to put their files on their phones, which is annoying. However, this post explains a work-around to copy any file to your iPhone and view it in Safari. In summary:

  • You need to download a small Mac application (or a Perl script) to your computer. This application is used to convert your files to bookmarks in Safari. The trick is that these bookmarks are attached by the files.
  • Then you synchronize your Safari bookmarks between your computer and your iPhone. You may want to create a separate bookmark group for these files.
  • On your iPhone, fire up Safari and open the bookmarks to view your files.
