Put media and apps on your iOS gadget with CopyTrans Manager

Download songs, movies and apps without iTunes on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod.

If you own an iPad, iPhone, or iPod, you don't have many options for downloading. You can stick with the closed garden of iTunes or jailbreak your phone and risk bricking it. CopyTrans Manager gives you a safer solution to put songs, movies and even third-party apps on your gadget. It gives you a more user-friendly way to have all your favorite stuff on your mobile gadget.

Though the clean interface won't blow you away, it makes it easy to find the syncing options. Since CopyTrans Manager usually finds your gadget automatically, you can start moving and downloading files right away. Files can be copied from anywhere on your computer using a simple drag-and-drop functionality. This means your entire library can go right on your gadget as long as it's the right file format. Things move a little slower when you're transferring a big block of files, but not enough to be worrisome. Though you'll probably never need it, simply because this program is very easy to manage, there's a huge help section buried in the software itself.

CopyTrans Manager succeeds in every way. It blows iTunes out of the water for most uses by offering more functionality. While it doesn't have any major standout features, it makes for the perfect default media marketplace for iFans. It gives you more control over your gadget without having to take the risks that come with jailbreaking.
