A new application called WildEyes is out by the developer of the famous TimeCapsule application. This application lets you view some supported files in Safari on all the iPhone versions upto 1.1.4. This application basically provides an interface to browse the files and when you click the supported file, the application closes and opens the file in Safari. I have also helped the author in the testing of the application. Also, you need to have lighttpd and BSD Subsystems installed in order to get this application to work for you.
Following formats are Supported as of now:
- Text Files (TXT, OUT, LOG)
To read about more the supported formats and and see some more screenshots of the application in action, read the rest of the story…
Get it from installer by adding Databinge Repo as a source.
All suggestions for the application can be given in the comments so that I can convey them to the author.
UPDATE: I have informed the author about mp3, m4v etc formats support by Safari and he’ll be adding it soon. So stay tuned for a new version.
UPDATE: Version 0.81b is out. Changelog-
- support for htm file
- support for sound files (aif, mp3, m4v, mp4, aac) (if you have installed the Safari download plugin, it may not play mp3, but prompt you to download mp3 instead)
- if thumb file is available, show thumbs
- if users try to launch unsupported format, WildEyes! will ask for permission to proceed
- sound when tap on files/folders (it’s a bit laggy from the speaker, but faster from earphone)
UPDATE: Version 0.82b Changelog-
- Fixes the 404 Page not found error if you browse files outside of ~/Sites with filenames containing spaces in between.
