FlexBV: Paul Daniel's wonderful FlexBV takes board view files and schematics together to make an easy to search tool. You can easily move back and forth between board views and schematics just by right clicking. It also has an amazing parts search, so you can find that missing component on a totally different board. Clicking on nets highlights everything attached, pin 1 shows up red, and it will soon include resistance readings, voltages, and basic instructions. iPhone boards are now supported. Check the links below.

ZXW: is the original reverse engineered board view for iPads and iPhones. Paul's software is rapidly taking over, but this has a few things that are still relevant.
