Review: CopyTrans makes iOS administration easy
iTunes is a remarkable tool for managing the content of the iPhone or iPad—if you are able to reside with all its restrictions plus restrictions. Like the truth it shops a files where it would like to, plus just where it would like to. And the truth which it’s a resource hog. Enter CopyTrans, a beneficial $ 20 utility which puts we more inside control of managing a iOS content about a Windows PC.
CopyTrans installs because element of WindSolutions’s CopyTrans Suite, including many different applications for managing many components of the iOS experience, like CopyTrans Contacts plus CopyTrans Photo. While it’s called a suite, we buy the applications we need individually. The applications include a free demo version; you are able to try any of them plus purchase the ones we like. (Note which the free adaptation of CopyTrans limits the transfers to 100 tracks.)
CopyTrans lets we browse the contents of the iOS device, sorting it by kind, genre, artist, or album.
WindSolutions bills CopyTrans because an “Simple iPhone Backup” answer, plus, indeed, this application does permit we to backup a few of the iPhone (plus iPod plus iPad) content to a computer. However its focus is entirely about music, videos, apps, plus playlists. It refuses to backup contacts or photos; you’ll need to buy the separate piece of the CopyTrans Suite to accomplish which.
CopyTrans sports a simple yet practical interface. It automatically detects a connected iOS device plus catalogs its sound plus video content. CopyTrans has 2 leading features: Smart Backup plus Manual Backup. A Smart Backup is completely automated, because it has the one-click method to be sure the content about the iOS device is synced with the iTunes collection. It does this immediately (moving 233 tracks took only a some minutes) plus without creating duplicate files. This is a handy method to be sure the content we have put into a iPod or iPhone is saved inside iTunes, too, whether that’s considering a iTunes collection was lost or you’re utilizing another computer.
The Manual Backup choice offers we more control over the results. You are able to utilize this feature to sync just chosen contents to iTunes, or we backup the contents of the iOS device to another place about a computer. Doing this creates a place from that you will play back a tunes plus videos with a favorite media player, that doesn’t need to be iTunes. While CopyTrans lists the content plus lets we kind it by genres, artists, albums, or playlists, it’s not a media player, plus doesn’t permit we to play back content itself.
CopyTrans lacks a few of the attributes found inside Mobiledit, a $ 25 application which can be considered its rival. However where Mobiledit enables you to peruse the contents of the mobile telephone (including iPhones) utilizing a Windows Explorer-like folder structure, CopyTrans concentrates purely about sound, movie, plus apps. And we wouldn’t actually consider CopyTrans an iTunes rival, because it’s not a comprehensive tool for moving content between a PC plus iOS device. However CopyTrans is a worthy sidekick to iTunes, because it has more control over a iOS content than Apple’s software delivers.
