"Easy, worked well, solved my iPhone problem"
Simple, couldn't be easier to get up and running, worked perfectly (at least for the very specific purpose I was using it for).
As others have posted, it's just a demo, not a free application. Some people one-star stuff for that, but eh, whatever. Just be aware--before getting too excited that you found an awesome free utility--that you'll need to shell out $35 if you want to keep using it over the long-term.
I had a collection of a couple hundred images on my iPhone 4 that were synced to an old, unavailable iPhoto library (i.e., not in the main camera/image folder, and invisible to my current iPhoto library). After an hour of researching and messing around with it, I still couldn't find a good way to export them from my phone (other than manually emailing them; max. four or so at a time. Ugh).Note on the demo version: I was playing around with doing some manual data backups from my mounted iPhone using iExplorer, and apparently the demo also limits how much data you can transfer (250 MB or somesuch). Just a heads up for users not interested in paying for a license.
After finding an article praising iExplorer, I downloaded, installed, opened, plugged in my phone, navigated through some folders to find my pics, exported them to my computer, and done. Super simple. No issues.
Note: And I actually did it the "hard way," by diving in and manually searching. There are actually nice shortcuts that will take you straight to the data/media you're looking for.
Here's what you can easily access from the main menu:
Photos & Videos
I'm not sure if I'll have a need for this program again in the near future, but in this situation it was a lifesaver.
