SynciOS is a free tool for managing your iOS device from your PC. It lets you transfer content to and from your mobile device with ease, though it stumbles a bit as a contact manager.
If you need to get information from your iPad/iPhone and the screen is damaged or iTunes doesn’t recognize it, you will want to use this SynciOS app. It even helps copy things from your iPhone that iTunes doesn’t easily copy. Its helpful if you support iPhone’s for anyone, and keeps your personal iTunes library from being co-mingled with other iPhone data.
I have used this program for years with good results. It allows you to copy things even when the iPhone has no free space. It allowed me to copy data off of iPhone’s no matter what the problem with the iPhone was.
It isn’t a replacement for iTunes. It can’t connect to the App Store, nor update your phone. However if you buy the professional version it offers a one click backup. It might be worthwhile for backup purposes if you don’t to use Apple’s iCloud automatic data backup.
I have paid for programs that have this functionality and I haven’t noticed any advantage of those programs over this. In addition it doesn’t have any silly limitations like 1000 song maximum like other free utilities. I receive no financial compensation for this review, just sharing a useful tool that might help you.
