Review: i-Funbox gives you more control over your iOS device

Make your iPhone or iPad's file menu mimic Windows' for convenience using this effective file manager.

i-Funbox gives you so much more control over your iPhone or iPad, even if it doesn't jibe with your antivirus software. It's relatively easy to set up and will make Windows users a lot more comfortable while they're learning the ins and outs of their iOS device. The extra apps and other tricks it has waiting for you are just a major bonus.

When installing this program, our antivirus software flagged it as a suspicious download and tried to block the install. The program seems clean otherwise, even down to a junk-free install. You do need iTunes, however, to get anywhere with i-Funbox, which shouldn't be a problem if you already own an iOS device. Once you have all the right tools, you can hook up your gadget and the program will read it, automatically. The program lets you view your files and app data in a tiled menu instead of the traditional iOS menu, so you can drag, drop, and move files without the usual hang-ups. In addition, the program can send apps that you won't find in the app store right to your phone for downloading. It doesn't even make you jailbreak your phone to get them.

If you're tired of putting up with iTunes to manage your phone's files, this program packs a ton of perks to get you to switch. In addition to managing your files in a much more creative way, it's one of the rare ways to get extra apps without a jailbreak. All of those make i-Funbox a really solid download for people who want to explore the inner depths of their iOS device.
