    Very cool utility… in the right hands. ***WARNING*** This exposes all the files and folders on your device. Be VERY careful you don’t delete something important. Use at your own risk because you could really mess up your iDevice. Also, I thought I could use it to grab music off my iPhone but the Music folder has renamed all the .mp3 and .m4a files with just numbers instead of the actual names of the songs. Good luck finding what you want without playing each file.
    Don’t take these warnings as me bitching. I really appreciate that you guys let us know about this utility.

    What a joke. Crashed every time I tried to copy a pic or video from my pc.

    great app however if i try and input the registration code they give its tells me the code is incorrect. i have tried probably 20 separate times and it will not work!

    Registratiom code works, but not very useful when u can’t copy pic/vid to the phone and the songs/pics/vids previously sync’ed to the phone thru iTunes have scrambled names/places.

  • Crappy, buggy app. Much better alternatives out there.

    Not worth the download I have experienced the same problems as the posters below. I think there should be better alternative applications out there.
