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.

"Great product! Don't bother with iTunes."
Version: CopyTrans Manager 0.992
Works as advertised. Very intuitive. It saves us so much time over using iTunes.
None that we have found yet.
My wife and I both love Apple products. We each have our own iPhone, iPod, and iPad.
But we HATE iTunes. Shame on you, Apple, for producing something that is so un-Apple-like. I don't understand how such a user-friendly company can turn a process that should be quick and easy into one that is so confusing, time-consuming, and difficult. All we wanted to do was to sync our music onto our iOS devices, and iTunes was not only difficult to use, but once we did manage to start the sync process it was taking forever.
Copy Trans Manager allows us to do in minutes what used to take literally an hour or more using iTunes. I just synced 3 albums onto my iPhone 4s in less time than it took to launch iTunes and figure out how to find the albums I wanted to sync.
Thank you, Wind Solutions, for an excellent FREE product.
"How software should be"
Version: CopyTrans Manager 0.992
Small program size, fast to download
Immediately recognises iPod
Sometimes a bit slow to respond esp when deleting from playlists
Familiar interface but without horrendous bloatware problems and interminable updates associated with Windows version of you know what. iPod classic users can now free themselves from the horrors of apple software on your PC!
