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.

"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!

"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.

"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.
