CNET Editors' review
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.

"Best iTunes Substitute"
Version: CopyTrans Manager 1.002
I have only used this for my iPod so I can't speak for other Apple hand held devices.
Pros for iPod-
Best thing out there for a iTunes replacement.
Easy to use and understand.
Simple User interface.
I have found times when a song may not have been copied completely, therefore, the songs may cut off before it actually ends.
"Revolt and no longer be a slave to Apple iTunes!"
Version: CopyTrans Manager 1.002
Start Copytrans Manager. Connect your Apple device and wait for CopyTrans to recognize it. Drag and drop mp3 and mp4 files from pc or other mp3 player into copytrans. Use the Update command in CopyTrans. Now the mp3s are on your Apple device. Simple as that.
None that I can see.
Awesome. Purchase your mp3s from wherever you choose, not where Apple mandates. Or rip mp3s from your CD collection onto your pc and then transfer to Apple device using CopyTrans.
