Mover is the quickest way to move stuff from iPhone A to iPhone B, with style.
Just add a photo or a contact to the Mover table, and flick it offscreen towards another iPhone's name to transfer them to their destination. Mover Lite works on Wi-Fi for quick, painless transfers; it can also receive videos, text clippings and bookmarks from users of the paid version of Mover, on Wi-Fi and on Bluetooth on compatible iPhones and iPod touches.
Unconvinced? See the video demo at http://infinite-labs.net/mover/.
★ ALL NEW VERSION! Mover 3.0 has been rewritten from the ground up to make it faster and more reliable, and now includes video transfer support!
• Move things around and send them to the iPhone where you want them to be with just a flick.
• No need for pairing: Mover can pick up other iPhones connected to the same Wi-Fi network. And if there's no Wi-Fi, Mover also supports receiving on Bluetooth transfers on newer models of iPhone and iPod touch.
• No need to worry about saving: everything is immediately saved on arrival in your iPhone's Pictures and Contacts, and never deleted by Mover, allowing you to clear crowded screens without worrying about data loss.
(Bluetooth is supported only between iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, on second generation iPod touch and on all later models. Previous models support Wi-Fi only.)

It's about time that you can quickly and easily transfer items between phones. Too bad you can't move mp3's ;p
I noticed a glitch (in my opinion). I moved 10 contacts to my wife's iPhone quickly but the "cards" you slide come back onto my screen almost immediately. I unintentionally sent several of my contacts several times to her. An "are you sure" feature would be nice for duplicate transfers.
Still a great and useful free app that provides a great feature.
It does work!

Try removing any protective covers on the iPhones before using app. You have to wait for the phones to find each other, kinda like bluetooth. You will see the name of the iPhone found on the right side of the screen vertically then on the other. It takes bout 3 mins. Then after both iPhones find each other you can send pics etc. I tried it from both phones and it worked fine. Both phones were on the same wifi network as well.
Great app a "must have!!"

Sweet app, a buddy of mine just got his iphone and i was able to send him all the contacts of our friends, saved alot of time and effort. Would be nice if the sent items would have a check mark or something for telling them apart from unsent items, especially when sending numerous files. Sending notes would be cool too. But i cant complain much for a free app that works great. If it sent mp3 files keeping the quality id pay big money Easy!

Before I leave my review, can I just say to folk who leave negative comments and remarks about this kind of app, that perhaps they should search for an app to help them double their lonely brain cell? These developers put a lot of hard work, time and effort into these apps to allow us users to have a happier, more productive, efficient, easier life. This app does EXACTLY what it says it does, there are no crashes, no bugs, no obscure or misleading descriptions and NO charge. It's FREE!! There is no need for nastiness. If this app is of no use to you then simply move on to the next one don't download it and don't be abusive by saying it's 'crap'. Comments like this dishearten people and could put them off developing future apps which could quite easily be your next 'can't live without it' app. Constructive critisism is always welcomed I've found but so is praise and this app certainly deserves that!
Now for my review! :-) I recently upgraded to the iPhone 3G. I use my 2G to store every app I have downloaded and everything else too. Plus I use different laptops to Sync them in order to keep them completely seperate. This however has lead to me doing without certain photos and contact pics. In fact tonight I actually emailed myself 2 pics from my 2G to my 3G rather than have to go through other means of transferring them which would have been time consuming.
When I came across 'Mover' I was so relieved. I downloaded it immediately because it was exactly what I had been looking for. The UI is self explanatory too. Once you've opened mover on both phones it instantly recognizes each device. Simply click the + icon and add as many photos as you want. Then touh each image one at a time and with a little swipe it's gone over and appears on the blank screen on the other phone! Genius! I added a few photos that I decided I didn't want after all but again it's simple. I clicked on 'edit', a red - sign appears over the photos and all you do is touch the images you want to delete then click done!
The photos you are transferring swipe across then appear again on a different part of the screen to signify that it's been successful. They all appear on the selected device at random places on the screen however you can drag the images anywhere or pile them on top of each other. That's what I did, since i was sending so many, so that I knew which ones had been done. ( a suggestion for future updates may be to delete the photos once they've been swiped perhaps)!
The chosen device displays the photos that have been transferred but once you've finished you simply close the app and the images appear in the camera roll, where from there I can chose what I want to do with them.
This is a very simple app which does exactly what it says it does. No bells and whistles, nothing fancy, just a simple way of transferring photos to other iPhones. Simple but ingenius! Granted it has so much potential for allowing other data to be transferred. Perhaps this will follow in future updates. It's a must have for anyone who has multiple iPhones in their homes or network for making life so much easier.
Thanks developer. I am one happy customer. :-)
This is what open APIs are made for!

This is a brilliant use of the technology. Mirrors some of Microsoft's "Surface" application (w/o the $10,000 price!!). I have downloaded it on my wife's phone, mine, and my kid's. The iPhones all immediately linked to our wireless network and I "flicked" several photos to both of them. What's really cool is it gives me directional arrows that signify who I am sending to. So, to send to my wife, her iPhone was named and pointed to the left side of screen; with the kids it named the iPhone and pointed to the top of the screen. This way I could choose a bunch of photos and then select which photos to send to whom just by flicking them toward the named directional arrows. This is fantastic! Get this app! And it's free!
You reviewers irritate me.
By: DocLewis - Jun 15, 2009
You make the rating plummit by making reviews for one star because you can't figure out how it works and are too lazy to figure it out. You rate one star because you are too lazy to try it to see if it works. You rate one star because you can't transfer music/video, even though that isn't possible and would break the law anyhow. You even rate one star for it being "the best app", as some have said. You all need help. This is a great app and works very well. Stop being lazy and demanding things that can't happen.
for those complaining..
By: no-name :} - Jun 12, 2009
that it cant find another ipod/iphone-fyi BOTH devices need to have the application open. It is an amazing app and i love it! I think you should be able to transfer videos though-not music videos or songs, but just videos that you may have (i.e. home videos). For all those asking to transfer music videos and songs, that will never happen because that would hurt iTunes' profits. Thats file sharing-a.k.a. NOT LEGAL. thats why all these files are protected.
I've been working on an app that will clean my house and walk your dog...
By: ArthurPeterson - May 3, 2009
but if someone else beats me to the punch, I probably won't cry about it and give them a bad review. Even if it only vacuums my house. And if I did feel inclined to give it 2 stars, I'd like to think it would be because it wasn't that great-- not because my app is GOING to do the same thing but better. i.e. prove it, sir. Then maybe you'll become relevant. And since this supposed to be a review, I'd just like to say this app is pretty sweet and works just as it says. Oh and It doesn't "hang up my router" either, I think mostly because, well, that's probably not possible. It did crash once, but I reset the phone and all has been good since. I've found that can happen with any app- even safari. I'd love to see more features in the future, specifically the ability to move different file types (like bookmarks, notes, voice memos, and even music if that would be allowed by apple) but for now, it does exactly what it says it will do and it does it for free. Good stuff. Grab it.

i have been looking for an application to move pics/contacts back and forth between my ipod touch and my iphone and i just found the one!!! it is extremely easy to use and it does its job flawlessly. i am very impressed. get it while it is free... one thing the developer neglected to mention is that you need to have the app installed on both devices in order for the transfer to take place, but since it is free--no big deal... great app!!!
Setup was easy but transfer of images is a little slow
By: Chadillac75 - Aug 10, 2009
I was able to set this up on my phone (3G) and my wife's phone (2G) VERY easily. Images transfered but took a while longer than I expected. Especially for a picture that was taken with the iPhone and is not very large in size.
The other app called "Bump" which was also featured on the same iPhone commercial on TV does the same thing as Mover, but you can transfer images while not on a shared wifi connection and it works faster. Although setup is a little more complex with the requirement to create a profile. But you can select an existing contact to speed up setup.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to allow the recipient to accept the incoming file and have control over whether it gets saved?
Love this app - really good, but I don't want to fill my contacts or pics up with stuff I don't want.
How about being able to tap the file, open it and choose to save or not, then go back to the app. If you want to leave it on the table fir a while and then delete that's fine, but auto saving the incoming is open to lots of abuse, IMO
By: Wenrich Caps - May 21, 2009
This app is sweet. It's like that new tabletop microsoft wants to come out with but on the iPhone. I wish it could transfer more than just photos and contacts though. The only thing is transferring apps and music would be hard because they would have to block transferring payed apps. Otherwise you would be able to get 5 dollar apps for free. Same with music bought on iTunes. Idk what else you could transfer that wouldn't be like pirating or copyright infringing or w/e.

This is the kind of app that really demonstrates some of the unique and powerful features of the Apple iPhone and the iPhone OS. Mover is visually appealing, easy and intuitive to use, and reliable.
Very, very, verrrrrry....very. Good.

This is amazing. This will be amazing when it goes Bluetooth and cell network.
