Apple has finally released their official MobileMe iDisk app in the App Store. The app is the perfect companion to any and all of you trying to make use of your MobileMe iDisk while on-the-go. The app is extremely simple and straightforward. Just launch the app and you will be prompted to enter your username and password. Once logged in you will see a list of all of the folders and files on your iDisk. You can then view those files or share them with others. To share files, simply tap the large share button on the right-hand side and choose your recipients. The app will then send an email with a link to download the file directly from your iDisk. If you so choose, you can assign a password and limit the number of days the download is available to keep your files safe. MobileMe iDisk supports all kinds of file types, including iWork, Office, PDF, Quicktime, and more. Files larger than 20MB may not be viewable. The app also requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later. MobileMe iDisk is now available for free in the App Store. UPDATE: Apple has posted an MobileMe iDisk tutorial video.
