Editors' Review

+

iExplorer facilitates the transfer of files from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch to your computer selectively to create backups. Whether it's music, voice memos, photos, SMS, or anything else, you can get it off your device and onto your computer without having to sync the whole thing each time.

Pros

Comprehensive detection: When you connect your device to the computer, the app recognizes it right away. It quickly loads all files as well, not just certain categories, so you can manage your entire data set through this single app.

Clear interface: Data detected on your device is clearly displayed in the app's interface. For instance, you can see previews of all photos, along with the date and time modified, file type, file size, and resolution. You can also export selected music tracks to iTunes or play them in the preview pane, and navigating from one file type to another is straightforward, thanks to the category list on the left-hand side of the screen.

Cons

Frequent pop-ups: Almost as soon as you open the demo version of this app, you'll be greeted with a pop-up asking you to purchase the full version. These pop-ups continue to show up quite frequently as you experiment with the app, and they are so persistent that it actually makes it hard to evaluate the program.

Crashing: We did encounter some crashing issues as well while we were testing this app. Each time, the app started right back up again fine, however.

Bottom Line

iExplorer is a complete tool for backing up data from your iOS device to your computer. While we did have a bit of trouble with crashing during testing, the other features make it at least worth trying out.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of iExplorer 3.4.0.1.

"Saved data on an iphone from being lost forever"

February 24, 2015  |  By mcx001

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.6.9.0

Pros

This software has proved invaluable for me to save old text message threads, photos, data, emails etc from a relative's iphone. What was also impressive was the messages are converted to .pdf files, so they can be viewed in the original format (i.e. as per iphone/ipad screen). Makes following the threads much simpler as it's totally familiar to the user.

For users complaining it's too expensive, the cost is very reasonable if you know the time it takes to develop this sort of software...they have to earn their living! Think of the cost of lost data in terms of time & inconvenience, it will be much higher than this.

Cons

The only negative I can mention is more related to the fact that you need itunes to use this software. Not a problem in itself, but rather in that apple decide to upgrade itunes software regularly, which can result in a slight delay to wait for an update of iExplorer. To my surprise, when this happened, the staff at IExplorer replied to my email within a couple of hours, and sent me a patch to update IExplorer to overcome the itunes problem.

Summary

I give this software 10/10, 5 Stars, a must have utility if you have an iPhone/iPad.

"It works!!!"

February 02, 2015  |  By fenolio.juliano

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.6.6.0

Pros

After looking for and testing at least other 2 tools, I'm very satisfied with iExplorer in order to restore my iPod music library into my iTunes account.

Cons

Since I use an external drive for my iTunes music library, iExplorer should ask for it before installation. It took some time to change these settings and my C: drive ran out of space at least twice until I got where to correct the destination folder for the musics.

"Excellent Product so far...."

January 28, 2015  |  By Woke77

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.6.6.0

Pros

Using with my MBP - Saved the day! I thought I'd lost all of my sms messages etc. when I updated my iPhone to a new version awhile ago and iTunes wiped my phone. Bought this software and it brought everything back from an old backup of iTunes. I use this to backup my phone now in case iTunes does something wonky as it's known to do.



Much easier to use than iTunes for data recovery! Thank you!

Cons

None so far...

Summary

I manage to transfer my iTunes playlists to my cool new computer. It really works well.

"Does what is it says and works so easily"

January 21, 2015  |  By travisnew87

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.6.5.0

Pros

It just works. After activation you can simply do all the features it states. There aren't any other hassles.

Cons

The software is amazing. Though at the same time I often only use it once and then leave it for ages. The $50 tag did sting a bit but considering there are no alternative you can't blame them.

"Exactly what I wanted!"

January 18, 2015  |  By PsychedelicRainbow

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.6.5.0

Pros

Quick and easy.
Gets everything transfered

Cons

Costs money...

Summary

Exactly what I was looking for when I switched to a new device!My Mac was stolen along with my music collection and I wanted all my songs back without downloading them all over again (I worked so hard to make my itunes perfect but EVERYTHING was GONE). It very efficiently was able to transfer everything from my old device to my itunes on my desktop,retaining its original form!

"Could not live without it!!"

January 01, 2015  |  By dgwgsmith

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.6.3.0

Pros

No longer an I restricted, how many times have you been in a situation that your hard drive has become corrupt or failed? after your software has been reinstalled you proceed to load Itunes and there is no media,so you proceed to plug you Ipod or whatever and all you can do is wipe the device so its the same as the computer(empty) you cannot back up from a device to itunes only itunes to the device !!! how short sighted!! No longer am I faced with this ridiculous situation, with I Explorer it does what it says on the tin!! Not only that, have you ever had the need to print off messages that can prove that someone is lying? well with IExplorer you can, all time stamped, absolutely vital in a court of law.

Cons

There arnt any faults with this app, the fault is with Apple for being so short sighted!!

Summary

Firswt class app and the best I have ever purchased !!

"Does not work easily"

December 31, 2014  |  By rdejianne

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.6.3.0

Pros

It will transfer your files from iPod to Mac.

Cons

The interface is not very transparent. You can't see the progress very easily. It freezes up. When you restart it copies duplicates. It doesn't put everything in the same folder.

Summary

I bought this to create a new iTunes library after losing the hard drive my library was stored on. While this product can transfer from iPod to Mac, it does not easily restore your library. I would not recommend it for this purpose.

A great tool, great support, and well worth it.

"THIS APP SAVED MY BUTT!!! THANKS IEXPLORER!!!"

December 15, 2014  |  By JohnRobinson14

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.6.1.0

Pros

Restored my iTunes library FAST. I haven't had a chance to check out all of the other features but the music transfer alone was worth the $ spent.

Cons

None that I have found. It's a bit pricy ($35), but that gives you a lifetime license and covers all of your iThingys. Also, the list of features is endless it seems. Pretty much everything you can think of doing with an iDevice. Then, when you compare that to how much it would have cost me to buy my music all over again, I'd say it's a steal!

Summary

I lost my hard drive on my PC due to a hardware failure, and this app saved my butt by restoring my iTunes library. I owe the makers of this app a huge chunk of gratitude. Also, Mark on their support team was awesome. I received a reply from him within maybe 10 minutes of contacting them. He answered all of my questions ( I had a lot) and was super helpful. This company knows what good customer service is all about. I'm beyond IMPRESSED! They've also got an impressive website. Top class all the way!
