Editors' review

iTools lets you manage your Apple devices through an intuitive interface on your Windows computer. Import your photos, manage your apps, and more with this convenient alternative program.

Pros

Ringtone maker: In addition to all of the features you'd expect from a program that helps you manage your device's data, iTools also lets you create ringtones from music on your computer and then load them to your phone. Just pick the track you want to use, and let the app do the rest.

iTunes access: From iTools, you can access all of your iTunes backup files, as well as the App Store. That way, you can easily pull up both new and older data, photos, and more, all from the same convenient place.

App management options: When you pull up the list of apps you have installed on your phone, you'll see three buttons next to each. These let you uninstall the app, back up any new app data, or browse the app's file information.

Cons

Slow loading: Some images loaded a bit slowly during testing, as did app data. The wait times weren't so long as to make them inconvenient, although if you do have a lot of apps on your phone, you might have to wait a bit for them all to come up.

Bottom Line

iTools offers an intuitive interface and a nice array of features to make managing your Apple mobile device as convenient as possible. It's a free program, and it runs smoothly, making it a good choice for anyone looking for a good all-in-one option.

    "Complete, superb, faultless"

    August 15, 2014   |   By Bullshifter

    Version: iTools 2014 Build 0520

    Pros

    1. Allows one to retrieve *anything* from one's iPhone! It burrows within the apps, so that even if the app doesn't ostensibly allow the export of files except through some email or facebook dump, one may simply gather teh files from within the apps file structure itself. A *very* handy feature for those wishing to gather media generated on the phone, without using some intermediary step (especially as the email function can stall if one doesn't use teh default Apple mail client).

    2. Screen access - brilliant for demonstrating to students or others - via video-link, screen-sharing/recording or in-class lessons.

    3. App screen - move your apps around without having to do the tedious wobbling app process - fast, easy and accurate.

    4. All of the other features are efficient and handy for accessing the variety of features that a phone offers. It even has a built in ringtone maker. In short, it turns a handy phone into a complete power tool.

    Cons

    1. The developer is Chinese, and so is the "support" page. It is a minor quibble from someone who doesn't read Chinese, but there is enough documentation in English to help me make the most of the tool.

    2. No obvious way to pay the dude some cash for building this top shelf tool.

    Summary

    In short, this tool is so handy it is unbelievable. I have found myself clapping with joy each time I use a new feature. I haven't found one aspect of it that hasn't worked perfectly. I just hope that it isn't a droid for unscrupulous masters. Whatever teh case may be, I keep using this brilliant tool. I can't believe that it's free, but I am really glad that it is. If I could find a way to Donate, I would.

    I fully recommend this tool and offer three cheers to the developer. Well done!!

    "Worked once, but could never import another song again."

    July 17, 2014   |   By dickweed101

    Version: iTools 2014 Build 0520

    Pros

    Well, I was very exited to find a solution to the abhorred iTunes, and it worked GREAT the very first, once and only time. Seems like a good solution and alternative - and more importantly easy and intuitive to use.

    Cons

    Failed on my Windows 8.1 machine with the latest (hated) iTunes the next time i tried to use it. All I was trying to do is add one more song to my playlist which I created the first time, but iTools threw out some message that was too long for the window to display so no clue how to address it - something about "unable to be compatible with iTunes ..." (who knows what it said). Moreover, when I went BACK to the DREADED iTunes that now said that I needed to RESTORE my phone - not happy about that either.

    Summary

    Be real careful, as Apple has their meat hooks in every nook and cranny there is. I am using the most updated "everything" on my computer, even reinstalled crappy iTunes and it still does not work. Not really happy despite the elation that I had that I have found a viable and realistic solution to NOT using Apple's monopolized software. Starting from zero again. I just hope that iCloud (another thing I don't like) has all my contacts.
