First Look: iDisk app
- Settings screen
When you click on settings, you're taken to a pretty basic features set. The real gem here is the help file.
- iDisk help index
The full index of iDisk help files. These go pretty in-depth on how to use the app.
- iDisk help screen
One of the iDisk help files.
- Sharing files
This is the initial screen that pulls up when you choose to share a file.
- Sharing options
When you choose to share a file, clicking on options will allow you to set a password and when the link will expire.
- E-mailing shared files
This is a shot of the e-mail that you receive when you share a file link with someone. Thanks for the screenshot, Dave Caolo!
- Altering shared status
After initially sharing a file, you can choose to either resend the link or disable sharing for that particular file.
- Testing a movie
This is a movie playing through iDisk. It was originally a podcast downloaded through iTunes
- Testing music
This is a music file originally purchased through iTunes. Sadly, the cover art did not carry through with it.
- Listing files
Here's the contents of the music file. It's no playlist, but does pretty good for individual files.
- Public folders
Once you add a couple of public folders, you'll see a list with them. It's very handy in keeping track of which folders you have access to.
- Public Folder - Viewing
This is a shot of what you'll see when viewing someone else's public folder.
- Public Folder - Viewing files
And here's a shot of an image located in someone else's public folder. Cat photo provided by TUAW blogger Michael Jones.
- Data Detectors
Data Detectors are busy at work in uploaded Word documents. Sadly, the original phone number is hidden beneath the menu bar.
- Data detector unobscured
Here's the file without the menu bar covering the top of the text. Here, you can see where the data detectors kicked in.
- Text file
Here's a text file as seen with the menu bar. Hopefully a future version of iDisk will push all text below that pesky bar.
When you click the "i" icon in the top right, this is an example of the file information that you will receive.
