Transfer different types of files between your iOS device and your computer without using iTunes and create backups of the most important data. Connect your iPhone or iPad to your PC and browse the data stored there. Search for files and play media files in the built-in player.

This utility was created for people who own iOS devices and are looking for easy ways to manage the data within their gadgets directly from Windows PCs. The program is compatible with a great deal of iOS versions and device models, immediately transfers any selected data, and comes with a fair price.

The developer showcases 2 editions of this program on its website: Free and Pro. What you need to know is that the Free edition is in fact the trial version of iDevice Manager Pro. The lighter version provides you with a limited amount of features and once you upgrade the product to its Pro edition, you will be able to unlock the rest of the capabilities (for example, transfer data from PC to iOS device).

To manage your iOS data, simply launch the program and connect your Apple gadget to your PC via USB cable. The utility doesn't require iTunes to be installed on your computer in order to work. You can browse the data within gadget like you would normally be doing when exploring the contents of a USB stick.

You also have access to a media player and a built-in search tool to help you immediately locate the iOS files you wish to back.

Personally, I'm not fond of the appearance of the interface. It looks a lot like a utility that was designed a long time ago. Furthermore, the program takes a while to analyze the contents of the connected iOS device.

Still, you can test the tool for free to see how it works and then decide if it's worth keeping it on your PC or not.
