If you find Apple’s multimedia library too limited in functionality and too restrictive, no doubt thatAnyTrans will meet your needs. Developed by the company iMobie, which publishes PhoneClean, PhoneRescue and even MacClean, this software aims to be the best alternative to iTunes sure Mac and Windows in 2017.
Once the AnyTrans tool is installed on your computer, plug in your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to the latter then launch it. Note that you must have the latest version of iTunes for it to work properly. You then arrive on the software home page, with several functionalities allowing to:
- add, merge and clone content
- copy content from your iDevice to iTunes or to your computer, copy content from your iOS device to another iDevice
- add content to your iOS device using file explorer
- use your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch as a USB key
If you want to perform a specific task, you can use the different buttons below to manage your device in depth with AnyTrans. It is thus possible to manage audio (music, ringtones, audio books, voice memos, playlists), video (films, personal / musical videos, TV series, music videos, time / slow motion videos), photo (filmstrip, photo stream, photo library, photo sharing, panoramas, albums, bursts), and personal files (contacts, messages, notes, apps, calendar, books, voicemail, iTunes U podcasts, Safari)
By logging into your iCloud account, you will be able to view all the data linked to it (contacts, notes, photos, calendar, reminders and backups). In each of these categories, you will be able to perform actions on iTunes, on your computer or on another iOS device by following the instructions in AnyTrans. Of course, the tool also acts as an iTunes library, accessible by clicking on the dedicated icon. You can find your reading tracks, music, movies and TV series there.
AnyTrans can be tested for free during 7 days with most of the features. If you are satisfied with this first test, the personal license is currently on promotion (to celebrate the arrival of spring) at € 29.99 TTC instead of 71.99 € TTC going through this link. It allows you to install the software on a Mac or Windows PC, and updates are available for life. As you can see, it’s the ideal alternative to iTunes (just like WinX MediaTrans)!
