Editors' Review

CopyTrans Manager lets you move music from your computer to your iOS device without needing to go through iTunes in the process. No matter where the music you're moving came from, it's easy to transfer through this straightforward and convenient tool.

Pros

Nice interface: This app presents features and options clearly, so you can quickly go through all of the music on your device and all related data. Once you connect your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad, you'll see a list of the files on the device. To add more music, all you have to do is drag and drop the files from your computer right into the app.

Built-in player: There is also a Music Player in the app that lets you play the music from your device through the computer. Just select the song or songs you want and hit Play. If the files are in MP3 format, the app will play them immediately. But if they were purchased through iTunes, you'll have to install the appropriate codecs to play M4A or M4P files, and the app will guide you through the process of doing this as well.

Cons

Limited file types: This app is only useful for managing music and videos on your iOS device. If you're interested in transferring photos, apps, or other types of data, you'll have to install a separate program.

No storage: While it's nice to be able to play your music through the computer, that capability only exists when your device is connected to the computer. Once you disconnect it, all of the data is gone as well, since the app itself doesn't store anything.

Bottom Line

CopyTrans Manager is a good option if you often want to bypass iTunes when moving music from your computer to your iOS device. Its clear interface and convenient setup make it great for this purpose, but if you're looking for a way to manage all of the data on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, you may be disappointed. The program is completely free to download and use, however, so it's worth trying out to see if it will work for you.

"After the disaster of iTunes 12.2, a simple delight"

August 25, 2015  |  By mcted

 |  Version: CopyTrans Manager 1.023

Pros

extremely simple user controls
what you see is what you get
works like iTunes without the bulk and complication

Cons

I would have loved if it featured a native media library manager for the PC as opposed to only allowing to manage what's on your iDevice.

Summary

I updated iTunes (12.2.2 something) and Apple Music or iCloud music library enabled automatically and messed up my entire media library on my computer.

I have my iphone music library untouched by iTunes. Otherwise, the iTunes update would have ruined my collection there too. I was so disappointed with iTunes that I decided to ditch it.

CopyTrans manager largely replaced all the basic features of itunes I used anyways like adding and editing songs and playlists on my iPhone. It is a true jewel of a software and a true alternative to iTunes without all the complications that come along. I'd recommend to anybody.

"Not so good."

August 24, 2015  |  By Oblio42

 |  Version: CopyTrans Manager 1.023

Pros

Well, it does access my devices....sort of.
It's free?

Cons

It asks 2 or 3 times for you to plug in your device because it doesn't recognize it at first.
It shows items in the list that I know were deleted and will not go away even when you refresh.
It is very fickle when you try and "export" something. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. And there is NO message or window showing you it was done. I only found out that it was done when I looked in the download file!
Lots of items would simply NOT export. Some pix, some videos.

Summary

Waste of time. Very flaky and fickle.
A FAR better program is Syncios.
And, no, I am not associated with Syncios
or have any investment in any way with it.

"Attractive, easy to use interface, works well"

August 07, 2015

 |  Version: CopyTrans Manager 1.023

Pros

Works with Nano and classic. Much easier to use than the dreaded iTunes. Does not stamp all over files on your computer (as iTunes does)

Cons

The first few times I tried to synch with a new iPod Classic, it complained that the database was corrupt. This was easily fixed by opening in iTunes first and after a few times, it stopped happening anyway.

Summary

Much, much better than iTunes.

"Finding this software made my day."

July 23, 2015  |  By Timenez.G

 |  Version: CopyTrans Manager 1.021

Pros

I downloaded and installed CopyTrans Manager with one small goal in mind, transfer a single solitary ringtone to my phone. I was surprised to find that CopyTrans Manager was freeware. What did I have to do to transfer it? Drag and drop it from my desktop to CopyTrans Manager. That's it. It worked immediately, I could actually select it in Settings. Feeling brave, I dragged and dropped about 100 MP3s to CT Manager. Worked! First try! Appeared immediately under Music. I can tell you, finding this software made my day.

Cons

are you kidding me?

Summary

This is what iTunes should have been. iTunes drives me crazy, I don't know who designed it. I have many MP3s on my computer, managing those with iTunes will make you bald. I have never synched with any other computer, yet iTunes is always coming up with new and imaginative ways to make life difficult. "Sorry, this iTunes account is linked to a computer named Win7 (the old name of the computer I am on). Do you want to delete everything you have even transferred onto your iPhone and synch from scratch?" Um, no, I just want to transfer these 10 songs to my iPhone..... Or how about ringtones? I made my own ringtone. It used to be on my iPhone for months, but then an iOS upgrade completed and the ringtone was gone. Grrr... Fortunately I had it stored on my computer. I fire up iTunes, I want to transfer one single M4R file. iTunes response? "You must enable Tones synch." Umm.. ok. "Do you want to delete your entire iphone so that you can synch this 1 single ringtone?" NOOO!!! Who designed this software? Why does Apple make it so difficult to perform simple actions? Or how about pictures? I want to transfer 10 pics out of the 1000 I just took to my computer so that my daughter can send them to her grandmother? Why can't I do that easily with iTunes? Sorry, you must synch every single pic on your iPhone first before iTunes will even consider your request. Using iTunes is like arguing with a fundamentalist; entirely pointless, it will never behave reasonably.

"Warning: Deletes tracks randomly from your playlists!"

July 21, 2015  |  By thenat1

 |  Version: CopyTrans Manager 1.019

Pros

Looks nice and functional. Looks cleaner and less confusing than the latest incarnations of iTunes.

Cons

I am using an iPod Nano (4th gen model) and these are the issues I have been encountering each time I use CopyTrans:

+ Doesn't seem to sync everything across from your computer to your device each time.
+ Randomly deletes a playlist folder and its contents from your device, even though they may still be showing in the software.
+ Randomly deletes a large quantity of tracks from within a playlist folder on your device, leaving you with something silly like 5 tracks out of 34, or 3 tracks out of 20. (They may still be showing in the software.)
+ Randomly deletes songs from your device's library (not just playlists). (They may still be showing in the software.)
+ WORST CASE SCENARIO: Randomly deletes songs from your device's library (not just playlists) AND they are no longer showing up in the software, so they seem to have been deleted completely.

Summary

This software is too risky and unstable for me to trust. I have spent a great deal of time building up my music library over the years and adding my language lessons, so I do not want to be using software that randomly deletes tracks and refuses to sync properly with my device.

"Not outstanding..."

May 25, 2015  |  By Couplesfred

 |  Version: CopyTrans Manager 1.015

Pros

Copy music back to PC

Cons

1. Not two-way transfer
2. Can't back up apps, contacts, messages, etc.

The word "outstanding" shouldn't be used here...
