Editors' Review

PhoneView for Mac gives you instant access to your iOS device, enabling you to back up and explore any type of content stored on it, including media files, call logs, text messages, contacts, and more. Since it features iTunes-like backup functionality, it's capable of completely replacing iTunes as a device manager. You'll like its streamlined design and drag-and-drop functions.

PhoneView for Mac installs quickly and sports a bland but intuitive interface. Both the trial and full versions of the app can display the contents of iOS devices, but the trial version limits the number of items shown. Out of the box, the program displays a Media folder where you can store files. If checked in Preferences, the "Advanced Disk Mode" will show the entire file system on a jail-broken device, allowing complete access to all system files. You can drag and drop files between the app and the Finder or the Desktop with ease, but you cannot drag multiple items. In terms of transfer speeds, the program averages around 10MB/s. In addition to letting you explore and back up media files stored on your iOS device, this app also lets you extract data such as contacts, call logs, notes, bookmarks, and Web browsing history. A really nice touch is the ability to save conversations from Messages.app as text or PDF files for desktop viewing and backup. One feature which we think some Mac users may miss is the ability to Quick Look items by pressing the space bar.

PhoneView for Mac is feature-rich, lightweight, and well worth the price. This useful utility is all you'll ever need if you're looking for an easy way to back up and manage media files and data stored on your iOS device.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of PhoneView for Mac 2.9.5.
