4Media iPhone Max Platinum is the most complete iPhone manager by 4Media. It includes the functionality of the regular iPhone Max app, with a few extras. The things that both apps can do are: copy content from your iPhone to your Mac and vice versa, rip DVD movies into H.264 and MPEG-4 files, and convert video files, so that you can play them on your iPhone and other Apple devices. There are two extra features that come with the Platinum version. The first one is a video downloader. With it you can download videos from video-sharing websites, like YouTube, Break and the like and then convert them to put them on your iPhone. The second extra feature is a ringtone maker. It allows you to create iPhone ringtones in the M4R format out of MP3 files.
At $55.99, and $49 for the regular version, this app isn't cheap, but it has a lot of functionality. It becomes very useful if you want to manage your iPhone without using iTunes or if you want to listen to your music on a computer other than your main one. So, if you really hate iTunes, this would be a good purchase. However, if you can live with iTunes and only need to get some content off your iPhone, you may be better off buying one of the cheapest iPhone managers.
