Review

PhoneView is a smart utility that provides individuals the means to manage files from iPad, iPhone and iPod devices. It can be installed with ease by any type of user, it uses a small amount of disk space and it consumes low memory resources.

Its user interface is rather simple and doesn't require a deep learning curve. It doesn't have graphic customization and multiple theme choices. However, the navigation throughout the menu is done easily, but the toolbar buttons often respond quite heavy to user actions. Also, when multiple apps are functioning, the interface becomes a bit laggy.

As per what it can do, the application is able to resolve several user difficulties when it comes to messages, voicemails or Mac data. Users are able to search through SMS, iMessages and WhatsApp messages, view and even export them to PDF files. Also, whenever your iPhone is detected, PhoneView automatically backs up messages.

Another neat feature is represented by the option to access voicemail messages and call log. Export and backup are also available, as per messages. Last but not least, the application can be used to access your entire movies and photo library, as well as download music and podcasts from your iOS device.

In conclusion, there are very few things PhoneView can't do when it comes to file management from Apple devices. Its functions are well-embedded and the price seems fair.
