iExplorer facilitates the transfer of files from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch to your computer selectively to create backups. Whether it's music, voice memos, photos, SMS, or anything else, you can get it off your device and onto your computer without having to sync the whole thing each time.

Pros

Comprehensive detection: When you connect your device to the computer, the app recognizes it right away. It quickly loads all files as well, not just certain categories, so you can manage your entire data set through this single app.

Clear interface: Data detected on your device is clearly displayed in the app's interface. For instance, you can see previews of all photos, along with the date and time modified, file type, file size, and resolution. You can also export selected music tracks to iTunes or play them in the preview pane, and navigating from one file type to another is straightforward, thanks to the category list on the left-hand side of the screen.

Cons

Frequent pop-ups: Almost as soon as you open the demo version of this app, you'll be greeted with a pop-up asking you to purchase the full version. These pop-ups continue to show up quite frequently as you experiment with the app, and they are so persistent that it actually makes it hard to evaluate the program.

Crashing: We did encounter some crashing issues as well while we were testing this app. Each time, the app started right back up again fine, however.

Bottom Line

iExplorer is a complete tool for backing up data from your iOS device to your computer. While we did have a bit of trouble with crashing during testing, the other features make it at least worth trying out.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of iExplorer 3.4.0.1.
