iRip is a program that lets you transfer songs, photos, and other media from your iOS device to your computer and save it wherever you choose. Through this program, you can save photos, organize your music, and connect to iTunes, if you choose.

Pros

Quick readings: When you connect your iOS device to this app, it quickly completes a scan of the contents and displays it in the main interface window. Transfers are speedy as well, so you don't have to worry about blocking out a lot of time to finish what you start in this app.

Good organization: Files are organized into categories including Music, Photos, and People, and clicking on one of these allows you to view all of the included details. Photos are displayed as thumbnails, so you can easily see which ones you want to save, and Playlists are shown separately below the main categories, making them easy to navigate as well.

Cons

Incomplete recognition: Although a People category was created when we connected an iPhone through the app, no Contacts were imported. Music was also not present at all the first time the device was connected, and we had to disconnect and reconnect before it showed up. There is no way to refresh a connection while a device remains plugged in.

Inadequate Help: The Help link only takes you to a FAQs page with about nine general entries. If you're looking for something along the lines of a Quick Start Guide, or if the problem you're having doesn't fit into one of the included categories, you're out of luck.

Bottom Line

iRip is a handy little program for managing the transfer of media between your computer and your iOS devices. It's not the most efficient at reading all of the data on your device, but what it does display is well organized.
