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.

"malicious program"

January 17, 2015  |  By stepon2

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.6

Pros

none. malicious program.

Cons

difficult to use.
installs Spigit
changes search engine and home page to Yahoo
reconfigures iTunes to not recognize iPhone

Summary

I installed iExplorer from download.com.
It installed Spigit, which is a malicious adware program that is difficult to remove, changed the search engine and home page to Yahoo, and configured iTunes so it did not recognize my iPhone. All of this for a free trial.

"Great Product"

January 04, 2015  |  By dwstclair

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.6

Pros

Did everything I needed when I first got it several years ago. I'm still finding useful new things it did that I didn't know about.

Cons

Help is weak.

Summary

Good app. I found I needed to play with it a fair amount to find ways to get it to do what I wanted.

"It saved the bacon Windows 7 would have ruined"

November 23, 2014  |  By VintageMacUser

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.5.1.5

Pros

It did what is normally impossible-getting files from an iOS 5 iPad to the Intel iMac after I had to lose my backed up copies due to Windows 7 torpedoing them.

Cons

There are none, seeing how it took the impossible and made it happen! It's like a scene out of Halt and Catch Fire, except with 2011 vintage mobile and desktop software.

Summary

If you're in danger of losing what you needed as regards music, you have to suck it up and get it. Hopefully in the future it will be like insurance, where you would need it but you don't want to have to need it. A security blanket, if you will.

"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.
