3 Easy Hacks to Transfer Data From an iOS Device

3 Easy Hacks to Transfer Data From an iOS Device

Freeing up your device by transferring your files from iDevice to desktop allows a smooth process for any upgrade. This will be an important factor if you want to tap into the imminent iOS 10 release. Doing this reduces the risk of any data loss that you could experience when your files remain on your iDevice.

It has become a popular question for iOS owners to inquire how they could transfer their files from iDevice to desktop. Well in the past such actions could only be realized by people who could email themselves files across devices. However a lot of things have changed now.

It is important to know that there are tools that can help you transfer your files from an iOS device to computer. Such tools help you tap into the functionality of your device. Still, you have to know the process of accomplishing a transfer of your files from your iOS device to your computer.

1. Free your iDevice

There are a lot of tools for transferring and managing iPhone files. But it is important to find a tool that has a user-friendly interface and transfers your files at the highest possible speed in simple methods. You also have to consider how you can maximize your iPhone space, back up files, export videos of big size and flexibly manage iPhone music on PC. There are a lot of peculiar features among different PC suite software in the market. But you have to consider the versatility of the tool, the speed and ease of using such tools.

You have to also consider that importing videos from PC to iPhone in a traditional way (for example when you use iTunes) can be long and boring. Sometimes the transferred videos can be incompatible with your iPhone and the time you have used in importing such videos becomes in vain. You have to also consider seeking a tool that would help transfer your videos to iPhone or PC in minutes. It should be functional enough to convert any videos (MKV, FLV, AVI, 4K, HD, UHD) to IOS-friendly formats for later playback. Editing or performing other operations on iPhone, iPad, iPod shouldn’t be a complicated process.

2. Use the right tool to transfer your files

WinX MediaTrans, a versatile iPhone file transfer and manager can help you transfer music from iPhone to PC for enjoying anytime anywhere with only several clicks. With this iPhone manager, you can transfer music. Also, it exports iPhone music back to PC when you want to free up iPhone storage or update its music playlists. It has unmatchable loading and transferring speed so that backing up tens of high quality music takes only half a minute.

Unlike iTunes, it never erases the old data on your iPhone, so you don’t have to worry about that. If you think that managing music can be a pain with the restrictions of the limited size of iPhone screen and complex operations, WinX MediaTrans is one to choose when you consider the many tools out there. With it you can easily rename, delete iPhone music playlists, edit music information like artist, album, etc. and get an overview of the music quality, format and duration with the file structure of your phone showing in an organized way on Windows PC.

3. Turn Your iDevice as Free USB drive

If you are in urgent need of a USB to copy some important materials, this file transfer will set your iPhone, iPad or iPod at hand as a flash drive to store temporarily your Excel, Word, PDF or other files. So you don’t have to take a USB, which is so inconspicuous that people often left it somewhere, with you anytime anywhere.

Too many clicks bother sometimes, so if you want easier operations and less clicks, just drag and drop media to their destinations (sync or export) to finish the jobs neatly.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
