This is a fantastic article. I\'ve spent two weeks messing around with ssh, dropcopy, and various other apps to try and send my ebook collection to my iPhone. With Fugu I can send multiple files at once and am currently sending my library of more than 2500 ebooks across - and its dead easy. Thanks heaps for this advice and thanks especially to the creators of this great program.
