A Powerful Data Transfer Tool that Makes iOS Data Transfer Easier, Quicker and Safer

A Powerful Data Transfer Tool that Makes iOS Data Transfer Easier, Quicker and Safer

Have you ever met the situation where you find your iTunes didn’t support to transfer the non-purchased media files when you want to use iTunes to backup music, videos or other files from iPhone, iPad or iPod? Or do you find that it is so troublesome if you want to transfer files from computers to iPhone/iPad/iPod with iTunes? Under these circumstances, you may need a third-party iTunes alternative. Leawo iTransfer, a comprehensive data recovery tool, is proved capable of transferring multiple kinds of data between iOS devices, iTunes and computers within 1 click.

Overview

Leawo iTransfer provides good solutions for iPhone, iPad and iPod transfer issues. It’s quite nice to transfer many kinds of files, like apps, music, videos, SMS, contacts, and so on between iOS devices, iTunes and PCs. You can also back up important files from iPhone/iPad/iPod to your computers with the software. In addition to the transferring function, I found that the software allows users to directly and permanently delete these unwanted files in batch. That will be quite useful if you have plenty of photos, music or other files to delete.

    Intuitive Interface

    I want to say that the software has a very user-friendly interface that I like it very much. It displays a host of information about the device, including its type, capability, version, serial number, whether or not is jailbroken (it works with both kinds of devices). Leawo uses a column on the left of the screen to let you navigate through the application and a connected device, where you will find two categories: your device and iTunes. And you will find various kind of data libraries here and then you can select the files you want to transfer. The interface is incredibly intuitive and I really like the fact that all features are laid out in a clear and organized way. You won’t spend a bunch of time trying to discover hidden features. Everything can be accessed within a couple clicks.

    Various Kinds of Files Are Supported

     From the column on the left, you can peruse your device’s media (audio and video), photos, ebooks, apps, contacts and calling information, and its file system. You can easily transfer content from your iPhone/iPad/iPod to your computer/iTunes, and vice versa. It offers the ability to transfer various kinds of files between iOS devices, iTunes and PC, making backing up devices simple and reducing the need to use iTunes. For example, you can easily use the tool to transfer videos from PC to iPhone/iPad/iPod without iTunes.

    Excellent Music/Playlists Manager

    You can manage your iOS device’s music. You can add or remove audio files. And you can export, rename and delete the playlists of iPhone/iTunes. You are allowed to copy songs in the library of iPhone to the playlists of iPhone and copy songs in the library of iTunes to the playlists of iTunes. As you’re manually managing your media, you don’t need to wait for iTunes to erase all data from your iPhone or iPad before applying changes making the process quicker. What’s best is you can transfer audio files from your iOS device to your PC and back or even to another iOS device.

    Compatibility:

    One of the most important thing you should pay attention to when it comes to transferring data for iOS devices is whether it is compatible with your device. Leawo iTransfer claims it supports all models of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, including iPhone 7. And when I use my iPhone 6s to try the software, it works well.

    1 Click to Transfer Data

    The software can automatically recognize your iPad, iPhone, or iPod when you launch it on PC and connect your devices to your PC. Its installation process was flawless, but I do want to mention that you have to have iTunes installed in order to use Leawo iTransfer.  Even for the first-time users, the whole operation is quite easy to understand — no special technical knowledge required. You only need to follow three steps, and the files you need can be transferred quickly within 3 steps and 1 click: connect > select > transfer.

    Pros:

    • You can transfer up to 12 kinds of files as you want between iOS devices, iTunes and PC.
    • No matter where you get the files, the data transfers of the iOS devices can be easily done without the synchronization of iTunes.
    • You can manually save the files you need on your computer, and send the files back to your devices once the files are gone in your iPhone, iPad or iPod.
    • You are able to put anything you want into the iOS devices, even if the files are not supported by the iOS devices.
    • The progress of operation is easy and simple, three steps to get the job done—connect, select and transfer.
    • The software has a user-friendly interface. Even for the first-time users, the main interface is quite easy to understand.

    Cons:

    • The trial version has a time limitation, so you have to purchase it if you frequently transfer data and manage media on your computer.
    • It’s not cheap considering that both iTunes backup and iCloud are free.

    Availability:

    The software’s official website: http://www.leawo.org/itransfer/ offers a free trial version with time limitation and you can free download it to have a try. You can also purchase it on the online store to get register code. Naturally, you probably don’t want to shell out $20 for a dedicated software program if you only connect your phone to your computer a couple times a month to transfer files, but if you frequently manage media on your computer, Leawo iTransfer is definitely worth it. Also if you are Mac users, you can choose Leawo iTransfer for Mac.

    Conclusion:

    All in all, if you are not happy with iTunes and want to find an iTunes alternative, you can try to use Leawo iTransfer. You can’t say that the software is a perfect replacement for iTunes, as it can’t update your iOS software or offer you access to a built-in App Store. But if you have some non-purchased media files or you want to get rid of synchronization of iTunes, Leawo iTransfer will be a good choice.

    11 Meeting Scheduler Apps to Boost Your Productivity

    11 Meeting Scheduler Apps to Boost Your Productivity

    Automations are key to improving efficiency. Set the system up right from the beginning and you’ll reduce the amount of no-shows and cancellations.

    Whatever your business is, with automations, meeting scheduler apps do more than just streamline appointment setting. They prime your workflow for maximum results.

    Meeting scheduler apps are awesome if you use them right. Use them wrong and you can look like an arrogant elitist.

    In this article, I will share with you 11 great meeting scheduler apps you can start using today to boost your productivity.

    1. ScheduleOnce

      ScheduleOnce is an industry leader and robust solution. Whether you work alone or have a large team, ScheduleOnce can support you.

      ScheduleOnce allows you to create multiple users and multiple calendars. I use one calendar for booking podcast guests with automations set up to prep my guests for our interview. I use another calendar for strategy sessions and coaching calls.

      ScheduleOnce also has embeddable widgets so you can keep the scheduler inside your own website.

      Starting at $7 a month and a 14 day free trial, ScheduleOnce can fit a variety of needs in business.

      Available on Web

      2. Calendly

        Calendly stands out for its clean, easy to use interface. If you like clean design, Calendly might be your choice. It too has robust automations and integrations for individuals and teams alike.

        You can try Calendly free for 14 days. Their basic plan is free while their most robust plan is only $12 a month.

        3. Assistant.to

          For those who use gmail, Assistant.to is a super simple solution.

          From inside an email, you click on the Assistant.to icon and pick times your free. Assistant.to embeds the times directly into the email so the recipient can quickly pick a time that works for them.

          While it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of apps like Calendly or ScheduleOnce, Assistant.to is completely free.

          4. Acuityscheduling

            Acuity is a robust meeting scheduler very similar to ScheduleOnce. It integrates with CRMs, Email Marketing platforms, Analytics tools and accounting software.

            It comes with a 14 day free trial. They have a free solo account but if you want the benefit of the integrations, you’ll start as low as $15 a month and can cost up to $50 a month.

            Available on Web | iOS | Android

            5. Pick

              Built for simplicity, Pick is direct and easy to use. You can create your own url extension like pick.co/yournamehere and it integrates with Google calendar and Office 365.

              At $3 a month, this is a great tool for quick scheduling.

              6. X.ai

                For those who are early adopters of AI, this may be the solution for you. X.ai created two AI assistants they call Amy and Andrew Ingram. After setting up your account you simply CC them on your emails with the person you’re wanting to schedule and the AI assistants will email your guests from there until your appointment is set.

                This type of scheduler feels more personal because of the dialogue. There are stories on their site of people thinking Amy and Andrew are real people. X.ai integrates with Google, Office 365 and Outlook.

                Starting at $29 a month for an Individual account and $39 a month per user for a Team account, Amy and Andrew are ready to schedule meetings for you. Want to try it out first? They do have a free trial.

                7. YouCanBook.me

                  is another competitive solution for scheduling meetings online. You can manage the calendars of your entire team, configure booking forms, and integrate with your calendar.

                  They have a free account branded with their company name or you can have some control over your branding and appearance at $10 a month for all their features. Either way, this company is worth a look.

                  8. Doodle

                    Doodle is unique in the space of meeting schedulers because it helps groups of people find a time to meet that works for everyone.

                    It integrates with your calendar and allows you to send a poll to all invited. Once people vote on the poll you can see which time works best for everyone.

                    Advertising

                    You can also run polls for food preferences if you’re scheduling a lunch meeting or a section of town if people are coming from all over.

                    While there is a free account, you’ll unlock it’s potential starting at $39 per year.

                    9. WhenAvailable

                      WhenAvailable is another scheduler that works for groups of people. You can use it to schedule a pickup game of basketball, decide on your next book club or book your family reunion.

                      Their free account allows up to 20 guests, unlimited events and one contact group. For $15 a year you unlock all the goodies including reminders and chat messages.

                      10. Rally

                        Like Doodle and WhenAvailable, Rallly is helpful for scheduling meetings and events with multiple people involved. You create a poll and everyone votes. It’s quick and easy.

                        Unlike Doodle, it doesn’t have as many features, but it’s entirely free.

                        Available on Web

                        11. NeedtoMeet

                          Finishing strong, NeedtoMeet is our last app that allows you to schedule meetings or events for multiple people. It has mobile apps, custom urls, easy polling, notifications and commenting.

                          Bonus: Don’t Make These Common Mistakes When Using Meeting Schedulers

                          In the excitement of streamlining your scheduling process, it can be easy to forget the feelings of those you’re inviting to meet. I know. I’ve done this.

                          To say “Hey, schedule time on my calendar” feels colder than “Hey, here’s my calendar. To avoid all the back and forth, pick a time that works best for you.”

                          Always make sure to frame your invite with your scheduler app with the benefit to them and why we’re doing it this way rather than the old fashioned, personal way.

                          A little finesse goes a long way. Without it, you risk seeming transactional and cold.

                          Some meeting scheduler widgets you can embed in your site can take a couple seconds to load. If you go this route, make sure there’s text just above the widget that lets your guest know the calendar will appear below and to wait for it to load.

                          If you use an online meeting tool like Zoom, it’s also important to explicitly let them know the meeting will take place on Zoom and include the Zoom link in the email reminder. Many make the mistake of not clarifying where the meeting will actually take place which can create last minute chaos at the time of the meeting.

                          Should you require special settings, like ethernet, external mics or lighting, let your guests know that on your thank you page and reminder emails so they are prepared for the meeting and you end up with the best meeting possible.

                          With clear communication in your automation, your meeting scheduler tools can almost perform like a virtual assistant for a fraction of the cost, or free, depending on the app you choose.

                          The Bottom Line

                          Meeting scheduler apps are diverse in features and unique in design. Before committing to one and realizing it’s not a fit, I recommend exploring which 3 might best fit you and then doing a trial with each of them at the same time so that you can see how they feel as you use them side by side.

                          Scheduling meetings the old fashioned way can be tedious. Conversely, finding a scheduling app that works seamlessly in the background is heavenly.

                          Like cell phones, meeting scheduler apps are moving from a nice-to-have luxury to must-have necessity in the lives of productive people. As you explore your options, stay true to your brand and the tools that have worked well for you to this point and simply find a meeting scheduler app that plays well with what you have created.
