How can I check my UI mockups on my iphone without emailing myself the files? I found a great app called "Live View" which is a remote screen viewing application, but it requires having a mac computer. Any options for PC users?

This question has nothing to do with UX; at least, not the way it is currently asked. I would say that your own UX with making the design would be helped by this being easier, of course. –  André Jun 6 '13 at 8:36
    
@André: That is probably disputable. I agree that it's not a very good question, but as I read it - it is about user testing methodology (meta.ux.stackexchange.com/questions/1127/…). –  Jørn E. Angeltveit Jun 6 '13 at 9:05

To me, it sounds like asking for a methodology to easily transfer files between the desktop and an iPhone. And that is exactly the answer he got. –  André Jun 6 '13 at 9:06
    
@user: André is right. You should improve your question. Take the tour in the Help Center, and welcome to UX.SE :-) –  Jørn E. Angeltveit Jun 6 '13 at 9:08
    
@André: Yes. In essence it's just a "transfer question". My experience is that many UX folks makes this simple task way too complicated. Eg. by looking for special sketching tool. Using images is a very simple, but neat, trick. –  Jørn E. Angeltveit Jun 6 '13 at 9:12

Save your images to the iCloud Photostream.
Save your images in a DropBox folder.

Test your design by showing the pictures in full-screen mode :-)


With this approach you can even take pictures of your hand drawn sketches and "test" them on your phone.

To answer the actual question:

Have a search around the App Store. There are also remote desktop applications that work with PC. Splashtop is just one of them.

TeamViewer is also very popular. –  Jørn E. Angeltveit Jun 6 '13 at 11:33
