  1. Please note the screenshot is from 2007. That is the last time the software was updated. Does not work with virtually any iphone update in the past year including 3.0.

  2. Sorry but that’s crap. Syphone is no more to use since an earlier upgrade to the iPhone or than the new firmware OS 3.0. Also it seems not possible to use it in Europe.
    What a shame, I seems to be one of the best programm for storaging txt from the iPhone.

  3. Just to comment on this application and your blog (since it has been written pretty recently and not accurately), the software is not able to connect to any 3G iphone software.
    It only works for the iPhones prior to version 3.0 as it can be read in their forums.

    No update is scheduled in near future.

  4. Why in the world was this article written recently? This prog does not work with 3.0 and later. Shame.

  5. How come when i do open syphon nothing appears in the window… i have Lion, unjailbroken iPhone 4 that is connected to my mac and iTunes..?
