Airship iPhone app

The team from Appfactory have released their latest iPhone app, called Airship (iTunes link), and costs $2.99

The app is an awesome little app that allows you to store files on your iPhone, using a web-based uploader over your WiFi connection. So you can store documents, presentations, video’s, music and pretty much anything else, and then view them on your iPhone.

Once the app has been opened you connect to a web page using your web browser on your computer. From there, you can upload and manage your files, which are then uploaded to your iPhone. I tested it out today, and the setup was simple, literally 1 click, and the app really simple to use.

The app supports the following file types:

  • Images (.jpg, .tiff, .gif, .png)
  • Excel (.xls)
  • Keynote (.key.zip)
  • Numbers (.numbers.zip)
  • Pages (.pages.zip)
  • PDF (.pdf)
  • Powerpoint (.ppt)
  • Word (.doc)
  • Rich Text Format (.rtf)
  • Rich Text Format Directory (.rtfd.zip)
  • Keynote ’09 (.key)
  • Numbers ’09 (.numbers)
  • Pages ’09 (.pages)
  • Audio Types:
    AAC (8 to 320 Kbps), Protected AAC (from iTunes Store), HE-AAC, MP3 (8 to 320 Kbps), MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3, 4, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX, and AAX+), Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV.
  • Video Types:
    H.264 video, up to 1.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Low-Complexity version of the H.264 Baseline Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; H.264 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Baseline Profile up to Level 3.0 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats.

Here is a quick intro on how the app works.

Open the app, and it will give you an IP address to connect to in your web browser.

This will open a page which will allow you to upload files, which will be uploaded to your iPhone:

From here, your files will appear on your iPhone in the app. You can also search for files from within the app:

Overall this is a fantastic app, and I would love to see formats like .avi being included in future upgrades. great to see South African iPhone app developers coming o the party with exciting new apps.

    I like the accessibility of it – whatever you need, whenever you need it. A very convenient app to have and if it’s as simple to use as you say, a definite one on my app wishlist.

    Wow, I didn’t know this was a South African app? …or am I missing something?
