    "Restore iPhone Keybaord Shortcut to any device."

    May 15, 2013  |   By xfitness

    Version: iBackupBot 4.0

    Pros

    All-In-One software you must need to have.
    The last version 4.1.+ can remove junk files left by jailbreak.
    And restore your own modified files like plist or SQLite
    Check my website: http://userdictionary.wordpress.com/
    You can transfer User Dictionary (aka. Keyboard Shortcuts) to any iDevice.

    Cons

    You need to know basic database programming.
    iBackupBot is so easy to use.

    "Brilliant backup and recovering lost settings/passcodes"

    April 12, 2013  |   By zygcnet

    Version: iBackupBot 4.0

    Pros

    Some of your other reviewers seem to be using a different product or a very old version. I used it to recover (or rather reset) a lost restriction passcode.

    You can open any plist file and edit, the write the corrected file to the backup. The real bonus is that you can restore just that file, without anything else. Normally Apple say that you have to do a factory reset and then sync all your apps and data which takes forever and is completely unnecessary.

    Even better iBackupbot allows you to duplicate the backup first thus protecting against messing up the corrections.

    I had a problem with files not writing back to the backup in version 4.1.0 of iBackupbot. After a couple of emails to support they had a corrected version (4.1.1)up on the web site within a couple of hours. That is what I call service.

    Cons

    The help files are a bit sparse

    "useless unless you want to write all data from a to b"

    March 15, 2013  |   By whatsthat3

    Version: iBackupBot 3.6.5

    Pros

    you are able to see and read your files like notes and contacts

    Cons

    first of all, I installed the trial version, could not find that nal ware program on my pc

    1. no copy past possible
    2. I experienced with export from backup extract, it goes into file formats, that can't be imported by outlook. xle but the fields are on the wrong place, db file instead of dbase
    3. restore backup to phone, I got error 20, thats probably because my Iphone IOS was upgraded

    Summary

    I couldn't find, how a registered version would work, and I wont pay for something, that might end up as useless at that program

    Version: iBackupBot 3.6.4

    Pros

    Hmm. Derrick's only review is this one.

    I wrote the developer:

    Hi, Shane.

    According to a review iBackupBot "put a program called snap.do on computer, changed home pages"
    http://download.cnet.com/iBackupBot-for-Windows/3000-2141_4-10969873.html#rateit#ixzz2IGSZTghH

    Is this true?

    Hi,

    Please download iBackupBot from our web site:

    Don't download from cnet.com, they may bind their own installer on other softwares.

    Kind Regards,
    Shane

    "Deceptive. Misleading."

    October 29, 2012  |   By SlikRicky

    Version: iBackupBot 3.6.3

    Pros

    Really none, since you don't get a chance to "trail" it unless you pay for it.

    Cons

    You don't find out until you waste your time downloading and installing the product that you have to pay for it to work AT ALL.

    Summary

    Product is unusable unless you purchase. "Free" and "trial" are misleading, and really shouldn't be allowed by C Net, which most people know to be a trustworthy site.
