Aiseesoft FoneLab gives you fast and reliable recovery options for your iOS devices allowing you to recover any lost or deleted media files, contacts, messages, and memos in just a few moments. It's a light and quite useful app to have. The only downside is that you cannot test it properly unless you purchase it.
Straightforward interface: This software gives you a well-designed and easy-to-navigate interface. Its recovery features are listed on the left, and the icons are easy to understand. As soon as you install the app you'll be prompted to download the latest iTunes version if you don't already have it installed. If you purchased and registered this software, you'll be prompted to connect your iOS device using a USB cable.
Three different recovery features: Aiseesoft FoneLab offers three different file recovery features -- file recovery directly from your iOS device, from iTunes backup, and from the iCloud backup file. For iOS devices, you can start the scanning process as soon as you authorize your computer, which took less than a minute on both our iPhone and iPad used for testing. Once done scanning, this app lets you recover any deleted media files, messages and contacts, notes, reminders, bookmarks, call history, and more in just a few moments. Using the checkboxes you can select which types of files you want to recover.
Recovers WhatsApp messages and attachments: Apart from supporting a wide range of file type recovery options, this version of Aiseesoft FoneLab also allows you to recover any lost WhatsApp messages and file attachments.
Main feature disabled in the trial version: Even though you can try out this software free of charge for 15 days, its main feature (file recovery) is disabled, making the trial version almost useless.
Aiseesoft FoneLab proves to be a light, fast, and easy-to-use solution if you need to recover deleted files and data from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, as well as from your iCloud and iTunes backups. It's not free, but if you need this type of software, then this one is well worth the price.
Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Aiseesoft FoneLab 8.0.6. The trial version is limited to 15 days.
