Great iPhone App: FileMagnet
I recently booked a trip and saved my confirmation page as a PDF.  I usually print the PDF and take it with me to so that I have all of the important information at hand.  With my new iPhone, I wanted to be able to bring the PDF to the phone and not have to print any papers.  After surfing the App Store, FileMagnet (US$5) appears to be the only iPhone app that allows you to synchronize files from your desktop to your iPhone.
