Syncios is a powerful Apple device manager that offers an easy solution to add, back up, and remove media and image files to and from your iPad, iPhone, and iPod. In addition, you will be able to view, edit, and delete contacts, bookmarks, and notes directly from your Mac.

Once the connection between the portable device and the computer is established, you can launch the application and start working on the stored information. A clear-cut and simple interface will help you manage data at your comfort. The same main window allows you to retrieve technical details about the connected device, as well as size-related information of different file types. An overview on the amount of stored data will help you in making the decision of freeing up disk space, and thus improve the functionality of your device.

You will appreciate the modular appearance of the program's interface. However, the free version of the application lets you work only with two modules (“Media Manager” and “Photo Manager”), while sections like “Data Transfer” and “Data Recovery” are standalone programs that can be enabled only after purchasing the apps. Therefore, if you want to manage media or photo files, you can access either the corresponding module or the list panel positioned at the left side of the window. You will be able to import, export, browse, and remove files easily. In addition, you can create playlists of media files and make albums out of your photo collection. Unfortunately, you can’t preview the photos at a larger scale as the program provides only a tile-sized display of your images.

What's more, you have the chance to see what applications are installed on your device together with version-related information. The program can help you install new apps, uninstall and remove obsolete utilities, as well as create backups of specific tools. Furthermore, it allows you to sync and back up contacts, manage notes, e-books, messages, and bookmarks, and retrieve the call history.

Besides file and data managing functions, the application offers handy options to let you extract files from the iTunes backup and access the iOS file system. All the above mentioned features make Syncios a stable and reliable iOS device manager which is both easy to use and efficient.
