"Fantastic Product for Managing iPhone music sans iTunes"
Excellent product! I'm an iTunes hater Copy Trans Manager is FREE and is perfect for managing your music. You cannot backup your files with this, but you can manipulate, add, delete, make playlists w/ music files from your computer. So easy!
To backup your music to your computer, you need to purchase the CopyTrans component of the package. If you backup through iTunes, there's no need for the purchase. Just move your files around like you want to in CTM.
This software does what it says it will do and is so easy. I have an iPhone 3GS and couldn't be happier with Copy Trans Mgr. for adding, deleting and generally manipulating Music Files, Ringtones, and Recorded Audio on my phone. It lets you make or delete playlists, but without the hassle of iTunes wanting to sync your entire library or something you didn't want to sync (Contacts, Videos, Photos, etc.) CopyTrans Manager is only for your music and will not access your photos or apps. Still, for FREE it is unbeatable.
The only drawback is that CopyTrans Manager does not allow you to backup the actual files to your computer (you can only manipulate them). However, if you purchase CopyTrans for a mere $20 (not CopyTrans Manager, as it is free) you can backup not only YOUR iPhone, but your iPod and everyone else's in your house. For our family of 5 with 5 Apple smart devices this is a fabulous value. The Copy Trans license (purchased for $20) says that it can also be used on other computers that you own, so this is fantastic if you have multiple computers you want to use with your iPhone or iPod. Actually both CopyTrans and CopyTrans Manager allow you to use multiple iPhone and iPod devices with the same software... with ease.
Again, Copy Trans MANAGER is FREE. What have you go to lose?
