File Magic for iPhone review

From Frapstr:

To begin with this is from SplashData, whom I regard as one of the authorities on mobile productivity apps. I used their apps on the Palm platform. I used them on Windows Mobile. They’ve been at it a long time, they know what they’re doing, and they do it well, so I expect their iPhone applications to be just as useful and robust — and they are. But apart from the trust factor, what sets this apart from the rest? Let’s start with connectivity. File Magic requires that you install the File Magic Desktop Companion app from their website (free, MacOS or Windows). What, no VNC connection? Nope. And for one good reason: Bonjour. File Magic uses the zero-configuration networking capabilities found in Apple’s Bonjour system. This means that File Magic will automatically detect and connect to the Desktop Companion over without a single thing to configure ever.
