Users with a Mac computer and several mobile Apple devices may want a way to track them from their Mac. iBackup Viewer for Mac is a simple application used to monitor information on an iPhone or iPod.

iBackup Viewer for Mac is available as a free application, but does have a button that solicits donations to the developer. Fortunately, there were no unexpected problems associated with download and installation. The program did not have any instruction or tutorials, but its menu was easy to interpret without them. At startup, the computer does not require any additional configuration and simply loads data already on the computer for viewing. There are easy-to-identify tabs for contacts, calls, notes, apps, photos, and the Internet. Clicking each brings up an addition menu with relevant information. For example, the Internet tab lists Web sites viewed, and the photo area shows all photos taken on the device. A drop-down menu also makes it easy to switch between additional iPhones or iPods, if you have more than one you want to track. During testing, it appeared as though this data comes from synching the devices to iTunes, and only displays the information from when the device's last plug-in occurred.

Easy to use and with few additional functions over the iTunes system, iBackup Viewer for Mac does succeed in placing device backup information in an easy-to-navigate program.
