Editor Review: This Software reviews is about alternative software applications (besides iTunes) to manage iPod/iPhone/iPad contents. It includes the transferring of music, photos, videos, SMS, Contact ect. between iPod/iPhone/iPad and computer(PC or Mac). Although according to Apple, iTunes is supposed to be the primary manager of all iPods and iPhones, other software has been created that can be used to sync or update iPods and iPhones with different media, often to work around restrictions in iTunes - for example, if a user transfers music to an iPod using iTunes, they cannot transfer the music from the iPod to another computer (or even the same computer after reinstalling the operating system).


The worst limitation of iTunes is that it transfers data only from iTunes to iPod and iPhone, but not the other way around. Additionally, your iPhone is bound to one iTunes library and cannot be synchronized with another PC without deleting the iPhone's contents first. After a PC crash, data loss, or simply if you want to create a Backup of your iPod & iPhone it can be necessary to transfer music, videos and more from your iPod back to the PC.
