5/15/08 – Ecamm Network today released PhoneView v2.0, the Mac desktop
companion for the iPhone. Formerly called MegaPhone, the Mac application
gives iPhone and iPod Touch users easy access to iTunes media, photos,
notes, contacts, SMS and call history data stored on the device. Mac files
and folders can also be copied to the phone for data storage and file
transfer between Macs. Furthermore, notes can be added to the iPhone or
iPod Touch Notes program by dragging text files, Word docs, PDF files, and
other formats into the PhoneView browser. Version 2.0 brings searching,
access to the contact list, and automatic archival of SMS and call history
“With PhoneView’s Notes features, the iPhone Notepad gets a whole lot more
useful,” says Ken Aspeslagh, Ecamm Network’s iPhone specialist. “Not only
can you retrieve iPhone Notes by simply dragging them out of PhoneView, you
can actually drag in text files for reading and editing on the go.”
The new SMS and call history archival feature is completely automatic.
Aspeslagh explains: “The iPhone only stores your 100 most recent calls.
With PhoneView, call history and SMS messages are backed up each time the
iPhone is docked, so all of your call history data is kept safe and sound.”
A 7 day demo is available, and a license costs $19.95.
