Review: Manage media and apps between iOS devices and a PC with Syncios

Transfer files easily from your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch to a PC using this well-designed and practical transfer tool.

Syncios offers a well-organized and functional interface for easy managing and transferring of files between an iOS device and a PC. The only thing we didn't like about this application is that it installed an additional piece of software without asking for permission and pinned it to our taskbar.

At around 15MB in size and with an easy setup wizard, this program took a couple of minutes to download, install, and set up. Upon launch, Syncios greeted us with a neat and intuitive interface. All options were displayed on the left pane while the main window consisted of two segments. On the first we could see some general info. regarding the connected device such as its name, color, iOS version, serial number, battery status, and phone number, etc. Beneath we could see the device's total capacity with an overview of overall system capacity and data capacity. Under Tools there are options such as audio converter, video converter, and ringtone maker, which allowed us to convert audio and video files to iOS-compatible versions. Using the Media link we could see all media types we had on our device including music, videos, ringtones, podcasts, and more. Our playlists were also visible and there was a small media player at the bottom, too. By clicking on Photos we were able to view our albums and easily import, export, and remove albums as well as create a new album. By clicking on apps we were able to delete and back up our current apps.

Syncios performs all assigned tasks well and is easy to use. This software could be useful to iOS users looking for an all-in-one tool for managing, converting, and transferring media from their PC to an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, and vice versa.
