How to transfer files to iSilo™ for iPhone OS using Yahoo! Briefcase


These instructions show you how to transfer a document file to your iPhone/iPod touch so that you can view the document with iSilo™ for iPhone OS.

The iPhone and iPod touch devices do not have built-in general file transfer capabilities, so each third-party application that requires access to external files is solely responsible for implementing its own file transfer mechanism.

In the initial version of iSilo™ for iPhone OS, you transfer document files to your device by downloading them from a web server. This means that you must first upload your files to a web server and then use iSilo™ on your device to download the files from the web server to your device. Future updates to iSilo™ for iPhone OS are expected to provide additional flexibility.

The following step-by-step instructions use Yahoo! Briefcase as the web server to which we will upload the files we want to transfer to our device. Yahoo! Briefcase is a free service provided by Yahoo and only requires that you have registered a Yahoo ID, such as when you sign up for a Yahoo mail account.

These instructions assume that you have already signed up for a Yahoo ID and that you have iSilo™ installed on your iPhone or iPod touch device.

Note that the images shown here may differ from your particular setup depending on the version of iSilo™ you have installed and whether Yahoo! Briefcase has updated their web interface since this article was written, but the instructions are pretty much the same.


  1. Go to Yahoo! Briefcase home page and click Sign in.
