Syncios – a good free alternative iTunes

Not all users of Apple devices like the app iTunes. However, you can find a huge number of alternatives. Today we look at the application Syncios. Developers call application as “the best free alternative to iTunes».

In fact, the Apple ecosystem is designed in such way that each of the devices connected to your Mac or PC has a level of self-sufficiency. Data is synchronized via iCloud or other cloud storage. Also, you can back up over Wi-Fi.

Typically, the user connects iPhone, iPod touch and iPads to the computer in the following cases:

– The rapid transfer of large amounts of multimedia data, or backup for a small period of time;

– Export files from an iPhone or iPad to your computer;

– Installation of jailbreak.

Syncios has an interface that reminds Explorer Finder in OS X. The program is extremely simple. In the left sidebar are all the navigational instruments, and in the center is the workspace.

Syncios supports multiple devices connected to the computer. Available export and import music, video, photos, podcasts, ringtones, and so on.

I was pleased with the ability to create and manage playlists. A useful feature is the built-in audio and video converter. The application has access to books iBooks.

If the user uses a sync with iCloud, then work with contacts, call history, messages, notes and bookmarks will be difficult. To use the functions Syncios you need to disable cloud storage.

Section «Toolbox» provides access to the root file system and allows you to use the folder to store any type of data.

Also there is an opportunity to see the log, restart or shut down iOS-device, as well as access to backup iTunes. By the way, the application does not require the installation of iTunes.
