Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS for Mac

Editors' Review

by   / April 30, 2014

Wondershare Dr. Fone for iOS for Mac gives you multiple options for recovering files from lost or damaged devices, or that you deleted accidentally. You can scan your device, iTunes backup files, or iCloud, and then save the recovered files right to your computer.

Pros

Previews: Once the app has finished a scan, it displays the items it found on the left-hand side of the interface. Clicking any item lets you preview the found files, so you can quickly find the one you're looking for.

Nice interface: The controls for this app are intuitive and straightforward, so even users unfamiliar with this type of program should have no trouble completing scans and accessing lost files. The app walks you through the process of scanning, and then presents the results grouped by category, so you can quickly locate the files you're looking for.

Cons

No trial recovery: The trial version of this app only scans and shows previews of the recoverable files. To actually recover the files you need, you'll have to upgrade to the full version for $69.95.

No text previews: You can preview many types of files, which is extremely useful when you're trying to determine which you need to recover the most. The exception is with text messages, which don't have previews, so there's no way to see what they contain unless you recover them all.

Bottom Line

This app is powerful and easy to use, with a good combination of features and an accessible interface. It would be nice if the trial version offered a few free recoveries of individual files as some similar programs do. But if you need to recover files from a device you lost or one that was damaged, this is a good option.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS for Mac 4.1.1
