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.

    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.

        Advertising

        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

          Advertising

            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.

              You can check out Access and the Office Suite here and Bento here.

              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.
