    Files iPhone File Storage App Files (iTunes Link) lets you store and view documents on your iPhone as well as transfer them easily from any Mac or PC. You can secure your files stored in the Files cloud storage via password. Files support various Microsoft Office Documents, PDF docs, image, movie and audio files. What I like about Files is how fast it allows you to browse files or view documents via its scroll bars. Files also features a high quality image viewer with support for zoom and pan. For your often viewed documents, you can add document bookmarks to easily access specific sections. The app also lets you jump directly to a page in a long document. For finding files you can use the search facility and then filter the files by name. Files is a pretty useful iPhone app that lets you take and view your documents and files wherever your iPhone goes. A Wi-Fi connection is required to connect to files and transfer documents. (Price: $4.99)

    Dropbox iPhone File Storage I've been using this app since it launched, and I would have to say that it is a very good Apple iPhone file share app. It's easy to use and lets you sync your files online and across your computers, aside from letting you share them with other people. Feature-wise it's basically your typical file storage app letting you access your Dropbox (iTunes Link) on the go, view and download files, take photos and videos and sync them easily to your Dropbox, share links to files, add photo galleries, and sync downloaded files. Dropbox iPhone app works with the main Dropbox service on the web. You can create an account from the Dropbox website for free 2GB storage or purchase the premium account for more storage. Either account will let you access it using this app. (Price: Free)

    Rating Average iPhone app This app lets you view your Box content on-the-go. It supports Word, Excel, Powerpoint, PDF files, Images, and Box Web Documents. You can share direct links to your (iTune Link) files and folders to any of your contacts to allow multi-user collaboration. You can then monitor updates to your Box account and see who has uploaded new files. Aside from documents, you can also upload photo's from your iPhone's camera roll to your account. The free account lets you store up to 1GB of files. If you need more, you can always upgrade to a paid account. (Price: Free)

    ZumoDrive Here's another great cloud storage app that extends your iPhone's file sharing and storage. It also works with the free Mac, PC and Linux app that you need to download on your machine and then register for a free 2GB storage. You can upgrade this storage anytime if you need more space. Zumo Drive (iTunes Link) allows you to view various document files including Word Excel, Powerpoint, and PDF files right on your iPhone. You can also upload photos directly from your iPhone to the ZumoDrive cloud server and then access them anytime, anywhere using your iPhone. (Price: Free)

    Quickoffice Files 

    Aside from Dropbox, I also like using this app especially when I still have an active MobileMe account. But even if you don't have a MobileMe account, you can still use this Apple iPhone file share app. Quickoffice Files (iTunes Link) lets you email files directly from your iPhone, transfer files from your Mac or PC through WiFi as well as use your iPhone as a storage drive via WiFi. This app also has a nifty slide show tool for viewing of remote and local images, advanced image viewer for high resolution images, viewing of files in landscape mode, and auto-bookmarking. Quickoffice files supports a wide array of files without restriction. (Price: Free)
