A manager for transferring music from PC or Mac to iPhones and iPads
4.0  (22 votes)

Again, we return to the field of file transfer between portable devices and stationary computers. There are many managers for handling wider ranges of files, but some apps concentrate on specific things, little things, making them more useful and easier to use.

For example, iExplorer is dedicated to transferring music from computers to Apple iPhones, iPods and iPads. It's a lightweight and simple program with an interface that is easy to understand and use. You connect your device, select it, then navigate self-explanatory menus and manage files. Adding new files can be performed by selecting them of dragging and dropping. Not only does iExplorer facilitate adding music tracks to iTunes and proper directories, but it can help users organize their playlists.

Another function offered by the program, apart from music transfer, is the computer-based messenger. You can use it to send and receive SMS, iMessages, text messages, etc. iExplorer helps you view, archive and export any messages from an iOS based system. As an extension of this function, newer versions support extracting contact lists, voicemails, notes and other elements of a phone database.

Also, iExplorer supports the standard function of using an iPhone as a USB flash drive, so common in synchronization programs.

iExplorer is a sly, simple and very helpful program for those who wish to keep full control of their iPhones. It may not be the most advanced file manager, but it is the most casually comfortable one.
