Sponsor: DiskAid

My thanks to DigiDNA for sponsoring MacStories this week with DiskAid.

DiskAid lets you transfer files to and from iOS devices via USB or WiFi. With support for files, folders, and complete file trees, DiskAid automatically detects installed apps and allows you to transfer music, movies, and podcasts (audio and video) to Apple's apps, but also files and documents to third-party apps without having to use iTunes.

Among other features, you can access an iPhone's call log, voicemail, and SMS history and export them to a Mac or PC. For Messages, you can generate a PDF of text messages, iMessages, or MMS that will include text and pictures formatted with iOS' style.
