Editors' Review

Fone Rescue for Mac promises to recover lost data on iOS devices. If you've ever known the unique horror of finding that important information has gone missing from your device due to physical damage or software malfunction, Fone Rescue for Mac is worth a try.


Easy to use: Fone Rescue really couldn't be any easier to use, which is a nice feature when you're in a blind panic over missing data. Just plug in your phone, wait while the app scans it, and then review the results. The interface is uncluttered and well organized; there's no guesswork required.

Try before you buy: Nobody wants to invest money into data recovery software that may not actually get the job done. This trial version of Fone Rescue will let you see what the app was able to find; only then do you have to pay for the full version, so that you can restore your data.


A little slow: The app informs you when you start a scan that it will take "several seconds to a few minutes." For us, the app seemed to get hung up after scanning 75 percent of our data, and we weren't sure whether or not it was going to continue. We ended up leaving it alone for about half an hour while we did something else. Eventually, the app finished its scan and delivered its results.

Bottom Line

If your iOS device has sustained a trauma and some of your data is gone, it's worth trying Fone Rescue for Mac to see if it can be recovered. You have nothing to lose by seeing what the app turns up, and you just might be able to recover your missing data.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Fone Rescue for Mac 4.3.0.
