Files can also be added wirelessly over WiFi via a built in FTP server. QuasiDisk is one of the very few apps that take full advantage of iCloud in iOS 5. You can sync files with your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Mac over iCloud as well. QuasiDisk will automatically sync your files to any device associated with a particular account through iCloud.
There's also a hidden feature in QuasiDisk version 1.1. It is unusual for Apple to approve an app with such a feature. Using this app you can tether 3G iPhone data connection with another device. Tethering iPhone data connection has always been frowned upon by networks who provide these data plans. Networks generally charge a premium to users who wish to tether their data plans. Since this app allows tethering data connection for free, it is only a matter of time before it is pulled from the App Store.
