The iFile application is a file manager for iPhones. The utility displays current files, but also includes an editor and so text files can be edited in iFile. Games cannot be modified in iFile if they are complied programs. The only way a compiled program can be rewritten is if you have access to the source code of the program. However, many games have setting, scenery, behavior and character files that the program reads in when it is started. These files can be altered in iFile if they are written as text files.
