myPhoneDesktop is an application from the App Store that lets you send phone numbers, URLs, text, and images from any desktop computer to your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch over the air.

With myPhoneDesktop, you can send content quickly from your desktop to your iPhone. Whether you want to send a long Google Map URL to a friend, or some text to a business colleague, or a photo to iPhone, myPhoneDesktop makes it easy.

myPhoneDesktop makes your iPhone an extension of your desktop by making them work seamlessly together. If you can copy it, you can send it to the iPhone. Using the comfort of your Mac or PC full keyboard, you can send SMS messages, notes, or anything you can type. And in moments, it will be on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

On one end, you’ve got your desktop application. From there, you can copy any phone number, text, image or URL and hit “copy” to send it to your iDevice.

On the other end, you’ve got your iDevice. Simply launch myPhoneDesktop and the content you sent from your desktop computer will magically appear, assuming you are connected to the internet whether on wifi or 3G. From there, you can open, copy, etc…

myPhoneDesktop can also notify you with push notifications, letting you view the file right away or ignore it to see it later.

That’s a very simple yet very useful application. I usually send myself emails with text, images or phone numbers really often and it can be a little cumbersome. Now I can send a phone number effortlessly and assign it to a contact or call it directly from my iPhone.

The desktop app is compatible with Mac, Windows and Linux. They also have a web client that allows you to bypass the whole download thing and lets you send content from any computer equipped with a web browser.

You can download myPhoneDesktop from the App Store for $1.99. It will work for your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

    My only question is this. When you do send an image to your iPhone, where does it put it? Does it put in the Camera roll or do you have the ability to place it inside an already created album?

    • You can save it to your camera roll or assign it to a contact. Like every other app, you cannot put it in a specific folder.

  • Well, Pastefire does pretty much everything but direct image uploading that this does, and Pastefire is free to boot, and accessible from any web browser. I use it all the time.

    • Whammy!

      +1 PasteFire – everything is almost 100% automatic. Calling a number from your computer is one mouse click and one phone tap. Same with downloading an image from the web, etc.

      @Carter: Try using the client. It’s installs quickly and just runs in your tray. I used the browser bookmarklet for ages before finally getting the client. Now I just highlight text anywhere on my computer (including the browser of course) and hit Win+V and it’s on my phone 😉 …….Mac version available too.

    @Carter Yes, Pastefire is free but myPhonedesktop cost less then my morning cofeee 🙂
    Aside form this, myPhoneDesktop integrates with number of other apps (Address Book, iCal, Lauchbar, etc), runs on Mac, Windows, Linux + full featured web client + bookmarklet. So for me for $2 myPhoneDesktop is a winner! Just my 2 cents…
