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.

"Just perfect."

March 28, 2015  |  By Saso Popovski

 |  Version: Syncios 4.2.2

Pros

Fast, simple, does just what you want. Oh such a relive after iTunes.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

Loosing hours to add just a single three party ringtone to my iPhone 6 (reading all those forums), I gave up. Couldn't manage with Kaspersky as well ( always have to do some changes to be able to recognize the phone in iTunes). This is is simply so good.

"Doesn't do what I wanted"

March 10, 2015  |  By bb541

 |  Version: Syncios 4.2.2

Pros

none for my purposes

Cons

doesn't do what I wanted so of no use.

Summary

I got this for a particular purpose but evidently they've changed it and altered it's functions. This new version has limited functionality.
I'm also a little annoyed because I'm trying to make sure my mac uninstalls all possible files from any program I delete and I can't find any instructions on how to fully uninstall this.

"I loved this software until the latest update"

March 07, 2015  |  By drnstvns

 |  Version: Syncios 4.2.2

Pros

I had the free version of this software for quite awhile and I really really preferred it to iTunes. I could sink my iPad and Iphone to the same music library without irritating iTunes wanting to erase one or the other etc. It did everything I needed with no question or hassle.

Cons

I liked it so much I paid for it and thats saying something since the only difference between the paid and free version is a pop up ad after transferring your music asking if you'd like to buy the software. Thats it.No diminished functioning, no ads nothing so I REALLY liked it but now it crashes EVERYTIME I use it. I can still transfer music etc but at some point it crashes.

Summary

I'm holding on to it because even with crashes its still better than iTunes and surely they will work out whatever the issue is soon.

"Syncios will break your iPhone without even trying"

March 01, 2015  |  By xanthom

 |  Version: Syncios 4.2.2

Pros

You can export some stuff more easily than you can using iTunes or manually.

Cons

It's very easy to break your phone with it.

Summary

Music disappeared after I tried exporting playlists. I had to redownload the missing tracks. Dozens of them. Fine, I thought. I'll just avoid using that feature.

After a few months, went back to Syncios. Installed the latest version. Thought they must've cleared up some of the bugs by now, but wanted to avoid exporting playlists just in case. Decided to just delete all of my voice memos instead, as there wasn't a way to do this in iTunes, and deleting hundreds of voice memos on the iPhone manually takes a loooong time.

So apparently Syncios deleted the voice memos. But guess what? My iPhone now seems to be screwed up. Open Voice Memos app. Bam. Shuts down immediately. Restarted the iPhone. Nope, same problem. Tried syncing it with iTunes to backup remaining data, but now an error message appears. So tried Syncios. And now Syncios won't even recognize that the device is connected.

The providers of this app try to look professional but the fact is, this app was not properly tested and it will break your phone without much effort on your part. Avoid like the plague.

"Better than iTunes for managing my iPhone"

February 23, 2015  |  By palaminoca

 |  Version: Syncios 4.2.2

Pros

Clean, straight forward user interface.
Easy to move around the photos, videos, and musics between PC and iPhone.
It works with iTunes 12.1.1 flawlessly.
The installation package I got from download.com is free of annoyed third party freewares

Cons

Not found any in my application

Summary

I have tried couple other iPhone sync Windows applications. Syncios is the best.

"What I needed but I fear for the future"

December 10, 2014  |  By user1997

 |  Version: Syncios 4.1.8

Pros

Program was simple and easy to use and did exactly what I needed it to

Cons

After transferring my files from one iPod to another, the iPod with the coppied files from this program can no longer be read by iTunes so iTunes keeps asking me to restore which whill erase all present data thus rendering the entire transfer process useless if I want to put new music on my iPod through iTunes again.

Summary

Good if you simply want to transfer your files but beware as you won't be able to connect you iPod to iTunes afterwards for anything, it won't even read it.

"Be careful!"

October 20, 2014  |  By sos3v5

 |  Version: Syncios 4.1.4

Pros

Easy to install, quick to run....

Cons

I installed this to back up my photos from my ipad. The process for doing so is easy and quick. However, be warned - the software doesn't export a full sized copy of your photos - only a thumbnail. Instead of exporting 1mb photo it reduces them to 11kb. A disaster if you then expect a full sized back up and delete from your ipad. Really can't see how this software is of any benefit at all for backing up photos! Avoid.

Summary

Easy to use... but do so at your peril! You'll lose your full sized photo.

"Excellent app, congratulations."

August 18, 2014  |  By LadderToAnita

 |  Version: Syncios 4.1.0

Pros

Syncios is, quite clearly, an excellent application. It has been created with great attention to detail and appears very easy to use in practice whereas
, to me at least, Apple's iTunes is a major pain in the butt when it comes to manipulating files around.

Cons

Not found yet.

Summary

thank you for providing such powerful software, your program has made my whole life easier, not like that dang itunes!
