"Beware of the C/NET Installer for iMazing"

October 04, 2014  |  By garyddavis

 |  Version: iMazing 1.0.4

Pros

I haven't even run the program yet- I am recovering from the awful experience of running the "CNET-Installer.app" on my Mac. THIS IS A HUGE HURDLE.

Cons

C/NET is not as trustworthy as I would have hoped. The "Download" link downloads the CNET-Installer app. You have to use THAT to then download iMazing, but BEWARE of two gotchas in that installer. First, they give you the "standard" install which would default your browser to a Yahoo page, with an added toolbar, and some other crap. You have to select "Custom" install and the uncheck all the unwanted options (and they are definitely UNWANTED). OK that, and it takes you to another "Install" page which is NOT iMazing, but instead some sort of other "protection" program, and fortunately I saw that and clicked "Cancel" WHICH DOESN'T cancel all installs as CNET is hoping you'll believe, it just doesn't install the crapware. Click Cancel, and then you get to install iMazing.

Summary

We appreciate getting an opportunity to download a demo of software we are interested in; we don NOT at all appreciate the extremely sneaky attempt to inject other software in the process, CNET.

"Not as good as predecessor"

October 04, 2014  |  By donpaske

 |  Version: iMazing 1.0.4

Pros

It allows the transfer of files from a Mac to an iPhone or iPad.

Cons

DiskAid, the predecessor, allowed one to actually read Rich Text Documents on the mobile devices. iMazing does not. I don't want to have to convert everything to PDFs in order to use them on mobile devices.

Summary

Works, sort of.

"Really nice app, but does not sync track numbers"

September 24, 2014  |  By rvlak

 |  Version: iMazing 1.0

Pros

Friendly interface
Easy operation
Affordable

Cons

Track numbers erased
Playlists not recognised

Summary

When I transfer music from my Mac to my iPhone, all track numbers are erased (set to 0). As a result, the original song order of the album is gone, songs are instead ordered alphabetically. Trying to bypass this by creating playlists in the right order on my Mac and then trying to sync that playlist is no option, as iMazing only sees a couple of empty 'Genius playlists' and none of my custom playlists in iTunes. This makes the otherwise superb app really a no-go for me.

"Okay, but not great"

November 27, 2009  |  By rickoberndorf

 |  Version: DiskAid 3.12

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
First, how come there is no change log anywhere for what's changed in 3.12?

The program is basically good, but could be better if the interface were more "finder like". You cannot select multiple items to drag/drop, for example. It should also provide a search function to look for certain files by name.

Otherwise, a good program. Worth the $10 for it's ease at accessing files on the iPhone.

"Not exactly what you want it to be..."

October 11, 2009  |  By pSYcl0Ne

 |  Version: DiskAid 3.11

Pros

Technically, it does what it says it does. You can access the system folders on your iPod Touch and move data to and from you're computer. Essentiall using you iTouch as a USB flash drive.

Cons

Non of the data you transfer however is usable from the iPod - pretty much defeating the purpose of downloading this software (well, for me anyway).

Summary

I can see how this may come in handy for someone who want's to limit their having to carry multiple storage devices around - using their iPod as a USB drive. But I must say I'm a bit dissapointed with not having the ability to access any of this from within the ipod. Having to Sync my entire library to the device is tedious at best and I was hoping this software would allow that for things such as say; dumping one photo or music album at a time, or an ebook for use on a bus trip - or something. But no. It does what my 10 other flash drives can do without software.

Updated on Oct 11, 2009

Have relised now that this works in combination with FileAid app from iTunes... good for .pdf and other text files. Add one star.
