All of our loyal readers, or certainly most of them anyway, use iTunes to synch their iDevice with their Mac or PC. More recently that syching also includes iCloud for much of the data that winds up on an iPhone or iPad.
Concept and Capability
Why do you need any software in addition to iTunes?
iSkysoft iPhone Data Recovery software, from iSkysoft, brings some very powerful recovery capabilities to the party and, once you’ve seen what it can do, you won’t want to be without it.
The key is that with iTunes it’s all or nothing. First, you have to have actually done a backup to get your precious data off of your device. Then, you either recover the entire backup you have in iTunes or you don’t.
With iSkysoft iPhone Data Recovery you can open the kimono, as it were, and see all the individual items that are inside the backup or on the device itself in case a backup was not done.
Then, once the backup or device has been scanned, you’ll see everything laid out right in front of you by category. It’s a terrific program and really does a great job of filling in the gaps of functionality iTunes leaves open.

The powerful application does more than just let you look into the items contained within a backup, it also lets you recover data that you may have inadvertently deleted on your iPhone. So, if you’ve mistakenly deleted a contact, for example, and do not have it in an iTunes backup, you can possibly recover it directly from your iPhone.
The things that it can recover include items from your camera roll, contacts, text messages, iMessages, call history, WhatsApp history, notes, calendar, safari bookmarks, and more. It’s a very comprehensive tool and, if you need this type of capability, can really be a lifesaver.
Once you’ve scanned your device, or the most recent iTunes backup that you have, the app lays everything out very neatly so you can clearly see everything by category and quickly find the missing item you need.
Then all you have to do is select what you’re looking for and recover it. It really is that simple.
As stated above, the pricing for this application varies based on the capability you need and the desktop or laptop you’re using. There is no question that this is an amazing value if you’re using it on a PC since the Windows version is Free. On the Mac, however, the cost of the application is either Free for somewhat limited functionality, or $69 for full functionality and for use on up to 5 devices.
All in all it’s the type of application that is worth its weight in gold when you need it, so even the $69 charge may not be an issue depending on the situation.
If you’re using a PC do not hesitate to download this app. If you’re on a Mac, the same goes for the free version, at least you’ll have a chance to see how it works and determine for yourself if the full version is warranted.
