Editors' review

Syncios offers a well-organized and functional interface for easy managing and transferring of files between an iOS device and a PC. The only thing we didn't like about this application is that it installed an additional piece of software without asking for permission and pinned it to our taskbar.

At around 15MB in size and with an easy setup wizard, this program took a couple of minutes to download, install, and set up. Upon launch, Syncios greeted us with a neat and intuitive interface. All options were displayed on the left pane while the main window consisted of two segments. On the first we could see some general info. regarding the connected device such as its name, color, iOS version, serial number, battery status, and phone number, etc. Beneath we could see the device's total capacity with an overview of overall system capacity and data capacity. Under Tools there are options such as audio converter, video converter, and ringtone maker, which allowed us to convert audio and video files to iOS-compatible versions. Using the Media link we could see all media types we had on our device including music, videos, ringtones, podcasts, and more. Our playlists were also visible and there was a small media player at the bottom, too. By clicking on Photos we were able to view our albums and easily import, export, and remove albums as well as create a new album. By clicking on apps we were able to delete and back up our current apps.

Syncios performs all assigned tasks well and is easy to use. This software could be useful to iOS users looking for an all-in-one tool for managing, converting, and transferring media from their PC to an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, and vice versa.

    "Transfers all files for free"

    January 07, 2014   |   By winterfyre

    Version: Syncios 3.0.3

    Pros

    Is actually free. I have tried so many other programs that claim to be free but then try to charge you after transferring a couple of things.
    You can use this to transfer all pictures, music, videos, etc off your ipad (or other iDevice, I tried the iPad Air).
    Easy to use. Just highlight what you want off ipad and then select 'export'. Quick and Easy.

    Cons

    Tries to get you to download other software. Just make sure you are careful when downloading and installing it. Always select 'custom' when installing and untick the boxes for other programs.

    Summary

    Works well, just like it says. Finally a product that can take files off my iPad hassle free without charging me. Just wish Apple didn't make it so complicated!

    "Crashes frequently and fails to detect my iPhone"

    December 10, 2013   |   By Gangnam1

    Version: Syncios 3.0.2

    Pros

    It's free but what use is that if it doesn't work.

    Cons

    This is an appalling program; I think the developers should be ashamed putting such rubbish out. I thought CNET were meant to test software before allowing it on their site. In any case, the program frequently crashes on startup and when it does start it doesn't detect my iPhone.

    Summary

    A complete waste of time.

    "The Missing Link for iTunes!"

    November 07, 2013   |   By Dan_Kap

    Version: Syncios 3.0

    Pros

    I had only been looking for a program that would transfer .pdf files to my iPad. Syncios does it very well. But then I discovered all the other file transfers it'll do among any iOS devices. It will even allow you to delete individual pictures from Albums you've created by importing them from your PC. You can't do that on your iPad or with iTunes at all!

    Easy to use, and is pretty intuitive. The first time I copied .pdf files from my PC to my iPad, it did it so fast I didn't think the program was working.

    There are good online instructions for its use, and there's lots of information about the program as well, both on Syncios' website. The English can be a little broken at times, but overall it's very good.

    Cons

    I used Syncios about a two months ago and it worked perfectly. Today when I went to use it, it would say, "Unsupported device. Please use others." It in fact was plugged into my iPad3. Reinstalled Syncios, and it then worked perfectly. Sure hope I don't have to repeat that down the line.

    If you select custom install, you can uncheck the crapware it'll otherwise install, as others have said. If you let it install by itself, it'll install crapware. Too bad. If it didn't do that, I would have rated Syncios 5-star. But then again, the crapware is probably what's helping support Syncios which is entirely free, to its credit.

    Summary

    This program is a must-have for anyone who's forced to use iTunes (and what iOS device owner isn't?). I hate iTunes. I'm not saying it's a substitute for it, but it allows you to do many things that either iTunes flat won't allow, or that iTunes makes very difficult.

    Summary

    Easiest program I've found for moving files back and forth. It's a keeper!!

    "Needs Work"

    August 01, 2013   |   By jblue0056

    Version: Syncios 2.0.9

    Pros

    Easy to install and use. Nice Appearance and organized well.

    Cons

    Lacks being a stand alone player. You cannot put info on the music file - Band name, Year, Album name, Type of music, Etc.

    Summary

    I am not a fan of iTunes and got trapped when buying an ipod, I should have kept my MP-3 player, much easier to use. I will try Media Monkey next as it hurts to say this, but Syncios pales in comparison to iTunes, now I will heave.

    "The best !!"

    July 31, 2013   |   By 4free4

    Version: Syncios 2.0.9

    Pros

    startup is lightening fast
    interface is clean and intuitive without any commercial link
    handles all sorts of transfers (video,audio,photo,apps,contacts,etc, to and from iphone, ipod touch...
    has tools that converts audio and video files and a tool for making ringtones.

    Cons

    none so far.

    Summary

    Cnet review "it installed an additional piece of software without asking for permission and pinned it to our taskbar" is false. The installation gives me the choice of simple install or advanced install. I chose advanced install and unchecked the two additional software in the process. It's the best free iphone utility ever!

    "More powerful than i expected"

    July 16, 2013   |   By SariClause

    Version: Syncios 2.0.8

    Pros

    This program is more powerful than I expected. It helps me transfer all my video files efficiently to my iPad. Furthermore, it also allows to transfer my music in no time to my Windows 8 PC. Safe to install, no spam at all.

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    The program is good for transferring movies and music. Well worth the cost. I would try to use this for my iPod Touch later.

    Updated on Jul 16, 2013

    It's free, the cost i mean is that it's worth to install on my PC. If it has more useful function in the future, i think i would offer the real cost.
