It’s a pity that every year Apple routinely brought about shining and brand new iPhone, iPod and iPad but it rarely considered about improving its core device managing program – iTunes. Regarded as the most controversial and problematic Apple product, iTunes hardly gets a favorable comment from users.
The root cause of this inconvenience is iTunes takes on almost everything, e.g. iDevice media (and app) management, purchase, backup, home sharing, playback jukebox, and much more. Apart from constant updates, slowness, source-consuming, complicated settings and limits, iTunes also leaves the media and app management part far away from desired.
iTunes syncing is an evil: There’s no ‘drag-and-drop’ option on iTunes. Instead, there’s a ‘manually manage music and videos’ option-but with it, you will risk losing everything unexpectly. Syncing really becomes a problem when you have more than one iDevice to sync to one library – especially if you have just purchased an iPhone 5 and still using iPads, iPods, because there’s no option to ‘manually manage apps’.
PhoneTrans, a free iTunes Alternative for better iPhone iPad management. Now it has been completely rebuilt with all-new UI and enhanced with iPhone App Transfer feature. When digging into its function list, you will find below benefits brought by this free iPhone transfer software:
1. Have you been bothered with adding HD movies to iPad, which used to take half an hour and risk losing all apps along the way? PhoneTrans can help to add / delete particular file without performing full iTunes sync.
2. It’s a mess to manage multiple devices on several computers, while PhoneTrans makes it easy to sync devices with portions of different iTunes libraries on different computers. No more unhoped-for content Erasing will happen.
3. PhoneTrans comes in handy when you want to create Music and App backup from old devices onto computer and populate the new iPhone 5 or iPod touch 5 from backups. The backed up Media and Apps will keep all playlist, rating, play count, App data, game saves, and personal settings, etc. It could be more flexible and efficient than iTunes and iCloud
You can download PhoneTrans from iMobie official site. Once you install and open it on your computer, you will find there is no secret in using this program.
