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.

"FANTASTIC Tool"

December 17, 2014  |  By saljmm

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.6.1.0

Pros

Excellent support, adds features that Apple missed, and seamlessly. The capture text messages alone makes this product worth it.

Did I mention the great support!!!!

Cons

NONE, absolutely none

Summary

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!

"Too expensive and buggy: And non-responding support!"

November 29, 2014  |  By DrHybris

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.5.1.1

Pros

None for that I decided to buy this software for (i.e., mounting folders from the apps folder)!

Cons

-> Too expensive
-> Cannot mount mount an app folder as supposed to
-> App gets frozen and that requires a reboot
-> Support does not respond at all!
-> Very disappointing and frustrating

Summary

I do not recommend to buy this software from own experiences!

"Life Saver!!"

October 28, 2014  |  By steeledawn

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.4.0.1

Pros

Simple, easy-to-use user interface
makes sorting through texts simple
Excellent customer support

Cons

none so far

Summary

I love this program. You can easily search through texts with keywords. It totally saved my butt in court. Can't ask for a better customer support either. I had an issue that turned out to be a compatibility issue. This problem was resolved through support within 15 minutes of sending in a ticket. I recommend this program to everyone.

"Worked exactly right."

October 22, 2014  |  By Rish-e Sefid

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.4.0.1

Pros

Simple to use even for an old gray beard.

Cons

I could only figure out how to move stuff from iPod Touch (2nd Generation) to PC (Win7). I was left with iTunes to move stuff the other way.

Summary

I bought this to get content from my old iPod Touch 2nd Generation onto the PC. Much of this content was extracted from old cassette tapes using a PolderBits software. Some was extracted from old overseas CDs that no doubt don't have modern encoding. Some were MP3 tracks downloaded from the LDS Church website. I hooked my iPod up, and with only a little blundering around I transferred 700+ tracks and about a dozen play lists. Elapsed time including software purchase, download, reading instructions, and transfer was about 45 minutes.

"Thought it would be painful, but was a simple drag&drop"

October 16, 2014  |  By pi_314159

 |  Version: iExplorer 3.4.0.1

Pros

For trying to export ALL of the pictures in the Album structure I thought would be difficult, but was actually just a drag and drop of the media folder. It grabbed camera roll and all albums.
My only downfall was not reading ANY of the docs and started exporting at first.

Cons

For my purpose I did not find anything that did not work well.

Summary

Great program. Did simply what other programs promised to do (and failed). I would suggest this program to anyone with an i<product> that ever needs to export / backup any of their data.
