Chances are you have a smart phone or know someone who does. Half of the phones sold in the US are Samsung or Apple products.
Apple products by far have the worst required software. With Androids you can use Windows Explorer or the Mac equivalent to access the MicroSD card. With Apple products its required to have iTunes software installed even if you plan on using a third party software such as MediaMonkey.
I use an iPhone 4S at home and with my job I deploy company smart phones on a regular basis. Our company builds products for iPhones so we require all outward facing employees to have an iPhone 4 or greater in the off chance that they would meet with a customer. If any of you have used an iPhone or deployed them in mass quantities making sure things are backed up for warranty or upgrades are a must.
In my case employees will tell me that they have everything after I use iTunes to backup their old phone and iTunes to setup their new phone restoring the backup. Nine times out of ten they come back a few days later and they are missing something important. Luckily I have a backup on my computer. Unlucky for me I cant see whats in the backup.
This is where software like iTools comes in handy. iTools offers a slew of features. It covers everything from serial numbers, model numbers, and activation status to having the ability to verify installed applications, application versions, and even backing up those applications and settings. The features I use the most in a corporate environment are recovering media files such as pictures and videos and recovering contacts.
Overall the software offers very minimal settings and has a very clean interface as does the website does. It offers a handful of themes that change the color scheme and nothing else. The menus are straight forward and logically laid out.
The website is so minimal it doesnt even have a list of features or description of the software which can be seen here:
My comprehensive list of features includes:
- Create ringtones
- Turn On/Off iTunes Auto Backup
- Browse iTunes Backups
- List installed applications with app size, file size, version number
- Update installed applications
- Backup settings for installed applications
- View media on the device including music, ringtones, videos, podcasts, TV shows, and playlists
- View camera roll and photos with the ability to delete or share to Twitter or Facebook
- View, edit, delete, and export contacts
- View and edit iOS desktop icons and sync the layout to your device
- Browse the iOS file system with the ability to see default ringtones, critical system files, apps, and Jailbreak data if you have unlocked your device.
- View real time iOS system logs and crash logs
- Cleanup icon cache
- Create OpenSSH tunnel from your PC to your iOS device
Its a small .exe file that has no other files with it in a .zip archive. Avast, Hitman Pro, and Malwarebytes AntiMalware all report that it is virus free.
