I think it’s been made pretty clear that most people don’t like iTunes. But what if you still need to transfer things from your computer to your iOS device? Syncios is a handy iTunes alternative for Windows. It’s completely free and but is just one downside. Unfortunately most of the software tools like this require that iTunes still be installed and Syncios is no exception. The good news is once it is installed you won’t ever have to deal with iTunes interface again.
So what does Syncios do exactly? This:
- Transfer & Backup of:
- Manages playlists and apps.
- Display device information
- Convert sounds to ringtone
- Convert video formats
- Unfortunately this doesn’t handle .avi which is kind of a deal breaker.
- Convert audio formats
Overall Syncios a decent desktop software application. It is not the best iTunes replacement that I’ve ever seen, but it is still a big step up from iTunes itself. Plus, it’s completely free.
