FonePaw iOS Transfer is one of the many transfer applications available to move your files to and from iOS device. The question of course is if it is worth it. Out of all of the file transfer software out there, how does it measure up? Let’s take a closer look at its pros and cons so that we can arrive at some kind of conclusion. We’ll also take a look at another major device manager, iMyFone TunesMate.
What's FonePaw iOS Transfer?
As mentioned before, FonePaw is software that you can use to easily transfer music, photos, videos, contacts, SMS, etc. from iOS device to computer/iTunes. Basically, it does what iTunes can do, but better. Unlike iTunes, it won’t replace the existing data on iPhone with the new contents. You will find it useful when you want to transfer files between iPhone and computer. Here are some of its advantages:
- You can sync all or selected movies, music, TV shows, podcasts, audiobooks, iTunes U, etc. Between iPhone and iTunes in a click.
- You can manage your iPhone/iPod/iPad music playlists on computer.
- You can export photos or albums from iPhone/iPad to computer.
- You can back up data to computer and restore it to iPhone.
- The software is good. I copy CD music from computer to iPhone by using it. It also helps me other things on data copy.
- It’s wonderful. FonePaw iOS Transfer not only can add data to iPhone, also can back up data to PC. I have many text messages and photos, but the storage of my iPhone is 16G. So I export data to computer, so that I can delete them on the iPhone. It saves a lot of space on the device. I love this application.
- It doesn’t have built-in music/converter.
- It is limited to some specific audio and video formats.
- It does not support to add music/videos to iPhone by simple drag-and-drop.
- Its detection of iOS device is not stable and may cause issues.
- It is much more expensive. It costs $34.95 for a single-user license.
- Can't fix bugs even with update and won't refund faulty product.
- Unable to connect iPhone to PC after multiple cables. Have had a license for a long time, but this is very frustrating. I can transfer data to phone via file manager, as phone shows up as device, but FonePaw shows no conncection.
- I’ve put some tv series on me iPod touch now i cannot delete them.
