Editors' review

Advanced users often want to work with the root directories on their iPods, but this can't be done using iTunes. With iExplorer for Mac, you can manage your iPod media and work with root directories and other advanced features. Still, its price may be too high for most people.

Available as a free trial version with some limitations, the full program costs $35.00 as an upgrade. Exactly which features are limited in the free trial is not listed or apparent from use. The app was quick to install and load. iExplorer for Mac immediately determines if an iPod or iPhone is connected and prompts the user to connect one if not. As quickly as iTunes would, iExplorer reads the plugged-in device and gives an initial list of songs available. Surprisingly, it also appeared to sync with iTunes and listed other devices linked to the account that were not connected. While testing we noticed that the interface was well-designed and looked similar to the one native to iTunes. The basic media management features were also easy to use.

Access to root directories may be a good option for advanced users or those with jailbroken phones, but less experienced owners should be more careful due to the ability to delete necessary files.

In short, advanced users may find iExplorer's features worth the price, but for others a free program may be a better option.

    "BEST MONEY EVER SPENT! Thanks to empathy of Apple guy!"

    September 18, 2014   |   By AdelaideBBB

    Version: iExplorer 3.5

    Pros

    5 STARS - Best money I ever spent. Recovered everything from kids iPods and my iPad & iPhone after a tragic loss of 21 year marriage due to DV post separation and having all my music and photographs stolen only leaving me with the little I had on my iPhone. If I had have known about this, I wouldn't have wasted money on data recovery when my MacBook lost everything.

    Cons

    none experienced but glad Apple guy set it up and started it off for me as I'm a complete tech phobic person

    Summary

    5 STARS - Best money I ever spent. After a painful marriage breakdown where my ex took all our music I lost most everything and had only just bought an iPhone and started to copy CD collection into iTunes, I put all my Doors music on, most Queen some Led Zep and a few other faves, but the process had only just begun and I'm not at all techy far from it (EX stole my 30 year collection, music I turned him onto and old collectors albums he stole I owned before we met I hadn't yet converted for saving) so after a data recovery on MacBook and realising the music I did recover did not save into iTunes I was gutted again, so into Apple I went and the nicest guy who was disgusted to hear what my ex had done to our children (stealing a wii cord so they couldn't have fun playing wii with me, really vindictive stuff) downloaded iE for me and transferred all the music from my iPad into iTunes - I couldn't believe it, I had spent all this money on data recovery which didn't recover the most important things but a load of crappy stuff that clung on! I'm indebted to they empathy shown to me and to your product! My 3 little ones are smiling and I have the little back from my greater loss. Tell me where you want me to shout out cos your product is amazing, I've transferred all the voice memos the kids have on their iPods they recorded when experiencing abuse of power (can't use this stuff in courts but it sure feels safe knowing we have proof of DV stuff if required) What a life saving device! 5 STARS from me.

    "Love the product"

    April 27, 2014   |   By dwstclair

    Version: iExplorer 3.2.0.7

    Pros

    I use it to retain information on my texts and phone calls.

    Cons

    Haven't found any yet.

    Summary

    I was using Fliq to keep track of my texts and telephone use, but it broke when Mavericks came out and when I checked they had no plans to update it. Fortunately I started using iExplorer a while back and had an overlap when Fliq let me down.
