iTunes is a pretty decent way to manage your iPhone or your iPad, but sometimes their software just isn’t for you. Luckily there are alternatives available.

One terrific alternative to Apple is IOTransfer, a slick utility that makes device management virtually painless.

This iTunes alternative is a great way to transfer media between your computer and your iDevice.

Concept and Functionality:

I’ve tried other iPhone management software before, but I found most of them to be buggy, clunky, and downright difficult to use.

IOTransfer is a pleasant surprise and is a program that would definitely serve its purpose as a way to transfer media between your computer and your iPhone or iPad.

Downloading and installing IOTransfer was pretty painless. I didn’t find any bloatware or spam while installing, which is always a good thing. Once installed, all you have to do is connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer.

Once connected, you’ll see all of your media broken down into groups on the left side of the screen. This makes navigation incredibly easy, and personally I like the overall layout of IOTransfer.

I don’t think users will have trouble with locating what’s on their iDevice.

IOTransfer includes plenty of features to make it a great alternative to the ever-popular iTunes software. Unlike many other programs, IOTransfer doesn’t bottleneck you to one media type.

IOTransfer offers seamless transfer capabilities for videos, photos, and music. Where iTunes can be troublesome, and even buggy, IOTransfer seems to take up fewer resources than iTunes. If you’re running an older computer, this can be a great thing.

Naturally there are limitations for the trial version of IOTransfer, but I think it gives you enough of a chance to take the software for a test drive to see if it’s right for you.


IOTransfer is available to download from their website for free, but only as a limited trial. You’ll be able to take the software for a test drive, but you won’t be able to take advantage of all features without paying for an annual subscription.

A single license subscription for one computer and one year will cost you $24.99, and a family license for three computers and one year will cost you $29.95.

Overall, IOTransfer is a great iTunes alternative if you’re looking to back your iPad or iPhone up to your computer, as well as transfer media between your computer and mobile device.
