    Phone Drive: File Storage Sync
    Free, for iOS & Android

    Transferring files to and from an iPhone is not as easy as it is on Android - especially if you're using a Windows PC. This app makes it easier by converting your iPhone into a wireless storage drive.

    There are four main functions of Phone Drive: to transfer files between a computer on the same WiFi network, to share files with nearby devices (similar to ShareiT or Xender), use it as a file viewer/player and finally, you can connect to popular cloud service providers (iCloud, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and Yandex).

    The cloud service integration is not included by default - you can unlock this feature with a one time payment of Rs 249. Once done, you can sign in and manage cloud storage and upload/download files from there too.

    Overall, quite handy if you regularly need to move files across platforms. There are no ads and the app itself is free for a limited time (normally $1.99) so get it while the offer's on.
