If you own multiple iOS devices, you may have noticed that syncing game saves between them is nowhere near as easy as syncing other types of data. In fact, most people probably don’t even know that it’s possible to sync game saves between devices.
This isn’t a big deal for most casual-type iOS games, but some games like Infinity Blade or Chaos Rings provide epic play lengths that represent hours upon hours of time invested. Why should you start over from scratch just because you bought a shiny new iPad 2, but all your game saves are on your iPhone 4? Apple does let you restore backup info from one device to another, but if you’d rather setup your iPad 2 as a new device, there’s no Apple-sanctioned means of transferring your save data afterward.
Phone Disk comes to the rescue. We covered Phone Disk last November, when it was temporarily available for free, but Phone Disk now costs US$19.95 for a single-user license. If you want Finder-level access to your iDevice’s media files and third-party apps without having to jailbreak, it may well be worth the cost, especially since with a little bit of poking around you’ll be able to locate your game saves and transfer them between devices using the Finder in Mac OS X.
