PhoneTrans is a free iTunes alternative for iPhone or iPad [Freeware]


One of the great things about owning an iPhone is the fact that it was designed from the start to be a significantly sophisticated multimedia environment, just like the iPod was. That means of course, full integration with the online iTunes service, which is something that some people find difficult to use.

The fact is that iTunes can be quite difficult to use, especially if you’re not used to the Apple way of doing things. Which is where PhoneTrans can help. This free (and also commercial) software program lets you transfer music to and from your computer and iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, all without using iTunes. You can also transfer videos, ringtones, audiobooks and more, and because it all works via simple drag and drop it should be a cinch for people to learn.

The Pro version, which currently costs $29.99, allows you to do the transfers via WiFi (i.e. no cable needed), and can also do two-way transfers directly from the iTunes Library app.
