Now, for example, you download a .ipa file from any other source other than through iTunes or your Mobile phone’s App Store then you may be wondering how to install this application to your phone.

All you have to do is plug your iPhone or iPod Touch to the PC and launch the program – no installation required. iFunBox will immediately read the contents of the device and display it in a double-pane interface, with the folder structure on the left side and the data stored in the selected folder on the right side.
With iFunBox you can easily transfer files between the iPhone or iPod and the computer, take advantage of the device’s storage and use it as a portable USB disk, and make backup copies of all your music and video files. iFunBox also lets you convert and upload an image to the iPhone as wallpaper, but unfortunately, this function requires a jailbreak.
iFunBox lets you make the most of your iPhone or iPod Touch by providing you with a full-featured file browser that helps transfer data between your Apple device and your computer.
