To Powder_Skier,

I think they said they don't need iTunes means they can analyze the devices they mentioned without the help of iTunes. But I think the program does need iTunes to run and work for other functions, such as identify the device.
And I don't think you can get the music you paid without iTunes and I think you can not even play it with iTunes. That's apple.

To Stu,
I think most of the software deal with iPhone/iPad/iPod here need iTunes, because they need iTunes to get the information of the Apple devices. iTunes can get all the info of the Apple device and the software may get them from iTunes and then use them to analyze the devices.

Does not work as advertised.

First, it requires the newest version of iTunes to be installed. A nuisance from the start. But, it also doesn't directly read the devices properly.

As a test, I connected an iPad 2 that was recently erased in prep for selling because it was replaced with an iPad Air. Ran the program, plugged in the iPad and the ipad is in the initial screen where it says "Connect To Itunes". The program sees the iPad and clicking "Start Scan" results in a screen "For iOS 7 device, you need to click "Trust" on your device in order to scan your data. Please follow the instruction below. 1. If your device is locked, please enter pascode to unlock it. (It isn't locked.) 2. Select "Trust" from the device's screen. (How do I select "Trust" when the device is blanked -- much like a malfunctioning/non-booting/otherwise broken device would be?) 3. Please click the "Start Scan" button to continue. TIPS: If scanning failed, please try to reconnect your device. (Been there, done that already.)

without iTunes backup files means that you don't have to have the iTunes backup files, not that you don't have to have iTunes.

Your reply is out of sinc with the original comment of 5. You probably had a bad day. Just cool it and carry on with your contributions many of us appreciate. Just one more comment: Your derisory statements about the price developers ask for their software do not add anything to the value of your comments, they only smack of cockiness and arrogance. Have a nice day!

Thanks for your recommendation of CopyTrans Manager. It can be very useful for several purposes.

However, since it is posted here today, your praise for CopyTrans Manager might lead readers to infer that CTM is a free, portable alternative to FoneLab. It is not. The feature description of CTM (http://www.copytrans.net/support.php?utm_source=CTM&utm_medium=software&utm_campaign=CTM&utm_nooverride=1&topic=tutorial)makes it clear that it only allows a PC to manage content that is accessible on a working device. It does not provide any way to recover data from an inaccessible device, or from an iTunes backup of that data.

Another problem with your comment is that your description of CopyTrans Manager as a product that "doesn't need iTunes," while correct in one sense, is misleading.

It's an idea that comes from the product's description page (http://www.copytrans.net/copytransmanager.php), which states that the product can "manage iPhone, iPad and iPod without iTunes."
However, one of their "Product Guide" pages (http://www.copytrans.net/support/copytrans-manager/copytrans-manager-user-guides/)makes it clear that the ease of use implied by that phrase is an illusion. Their product WON'T DO ANYTHING without iTunes installed, UNLESS you install the "iTunes drivers." Without those, a PC will not recognize that an iOS device is connected.

They provide a clear, detailed guide on how to install the necessary drivers, without installing the full iTunes product ( http://www.copytrans.net/support/install-iphone-ipod-touch-and-ipad-drivers-without-installing-itunes/), and even provide a free utility to help install the drivers. However, the utility needs to download the iTunes setup file in order to do this.

In summary, although it's correct to say that you do not need to have the full iTunes product installed, you do "need" components of iTunes. That fact explains why you are wrong to say "there is no reason for software developers to require iTunes." It also provides an answer to your question, "why do all the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch software I’ve seen here require iTunes?"

Although this "drivers only" method does provide an alternative to installing the full product, it is an alternative that is much more complicated than simply installing iTunes and then not using it.

Good god man, learn to read:

> I didn’t say “MobiSaver FREE version” is BETTER than this GAOTD…

I never said you did.

> I said “BEST” FREE ALTERNATIVES, meaning among freeware “MobiSaver” is the BEST tool I know! Get the drift?

Yes, my reading comprehension is fairly decent. If yours was, you would understand I paid you a compliment for your efforts each day. Comments I generally read and enjoy despite your occasional condescending attitude (everyone is a "noob" at something). However, I also I wanted to share my Personal Experience with the free product you suggested and alert others to the fact that it is crippleware. I was not attacking or insulting you in any way.

> Anyway if you are able to find a better FREEWARE than mine just let me know ok?

I had no idea this was some sort of competition. Why the attitude, did someone spit in your cereal this morning?

Now only because I said I would post again regarding today's giveaway: After working with it for a bit, I not as impressed as I had hoped. I'd share more but apparently that's not the purpose of the comments here.

Your interpretation of the product description you quoted is wrong. It does not say, or imply, that FoneLab "does not need iTunes." It merely says that it can recover data from the specified devices without using "iTunes backup files." That should not lead you to conclude that it does not need to have iTunes installed in Windows.

Presumably the reason iTunes is required is because the software doesn't include the Apple Mobile Device driver that is included in iTunes.

Never hijacked anything to me....so don't know what you are talking about...

No offense meant, but if you are not able to uncheck crapware during installation (many freeware are bundled with that to keep them free), I'm afraid that the WEB is not the right environment for you!

I return ed my iPad 1 when it first came out because I HATE PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE that you MUST use to access anything, much like CNET does when you want to download software from their web site, which they NOW, offer an alternative download link.

Anytime you use iTunes, you are providing them (JUST LIKE GOOGLE) YOUR INFORMATION. Do you REALLY want to do that? DO YOU?

NOT ME. I agree with GIOVANNI on about 99.99% of everything he says.

Come on people, STOP ALLOWING COMPANIES TO MANIPULATE, TRICK, AND USE YOU, ESPECIALLY IF THEY OFFER SOMETHING FREE BECAUSE NOTHING IS REALLY FREE, IS IT?

@ #15, I haven't tried the software, but what they're saying is you don't need to have created an iTunes _Backup_ to restore files from that (what lots of other apps do) - it can restore stuff directly from the device. But the software still needs iTunes to talk to the device. Big difference.

I was excited to read this "Aiseesoft FoneLab can directly recover the lost and deleted data from iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1 and iPod touch 4 without iTunes backup files," as I have an older 3G that I don't use but would like to get the music off of it that I paid for.

Past programs of this type from GOTD required installing itunes on my PC, which I don't want to do.

I was then shocked to read this on the page after I installed this program. "We need the latest version of iTunes to connect and scan your device." WHAT???? REALLY????

What happened to "we don't need iTunes..." blah blah blah?

I've had a high opinion of Aiseesoft - until now. I suppose I could install iTunes, get the music, and then uninstall, but that defeats the purpose of installing this software - IT SAID IT DIDN'T NEED ITUNES!!

VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!!!!!!! And a Pox on Apple for making paid customers (even former customers) jump through so many hoops to access PAID MUSIC!

I won't be keeping this on my computer - Grrrrr

When it says "Aiseesoft FoneLab can directly recover the lost and deleted data from iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1 and iPod touch 4 without iTunes backup files.", the implication is that iTunes is not needed. However, this is NOT the case. The first screen you get when you run the program after registration says "We need the latest version of iTunes to connect and scan your device.". For those like me that refuse to use iTunes, that is the end of the line for this program.

There is no reason for software developers to require iTunes, other than the software development is easier for them. Take, for example, CopyTrans. All their software not only doesn't need iTunes, it runs directly without an install process which of course means that it can be run from a flash drive. As an example, their CopyTrans Manager

http://www.copytrans.net/copytransmanager.php

is completely FREE, doesn't need iTunes, and runs without an install process. However, it doesn't do backups. They do have a backup program and other software, but they aren't free. However, none cost more than $19.99.

So why do all the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch software I've seen here require iTunes???

I tried to restore iTunes backup after installing iOS 7 on my iPhone 5, but each time I select Restore Backup, the iPhone 5 always rebooted automatically and took me back to the reconfigure pages. Really upset with that! I found and tried some other recovery software online and Fonelab recognizes my iTunes backup file faster than other iPhone data recovery software I have used. I can easily export the data I need. Give it a thumb up and thank you very much for today's giveaway.

While I always appreciate looking over the freebies Giovanni manages to track down for us, today Giovanni's best free alternative is a seriously crippled version of EaseUS' $70.00 MobiSaver program. Make sure to look at the features matrix and decide if it will do what you need, because it doesn't do much. I've used it (I only needed to retrieve 2 files) and while very limited, it worked well.

Today's Giveaway, at first glance, appears pretty decent with considerably more features. It downloaded, installed and activated without any issues (Win7-64). I plan to test it with a couple of devices over the next few hours. I'll post again with my results.
I've had pretty good overall experiences with other Aiseesoft products I've gotten here at GOTD. I'm hoping this one will be good too.

Download it and install on my laptop. I missed the data recovery software for iPhone last month and hope this will also work for my iPhone 4S.
I am now using iPhone 5S and have all the contacts on the old iPhone 4S. However, now I want to get some of the contacts I deleted on my iPhone 4S back on my new iPhone 5S. I gave my iPhone 4s to my little brother and hope I can get the contacts back after adding many new contacts by him.
It can be registered easily and run smoothly on my Windows 8 HP laptop. I get the latest iTunes installed on my computer and after I connect my iPhone 4S to my computer. The software recognizes it automatically. The recovery process is fast and easy to operate. It provides many data to recovery, but I only want my contacts back. It does a great job, I can get all the contacts I deleted back. I also notice that it can recovery SMS and bookmark. I can't remember which pictures is mine so I am not sure if it can recovery pics exactly.
I scan it with my Norton and it shows that it is clean. So it's a nice try for me and I will keep it. Thank you very much GOTD.

I installed it on my computer (Windows 8 64bit), and it worked fine. Once connected my iPhone 5 to computer, it recognized the device automatically. After scanning the device, the deleted Contacts and SMS can be really recovered.

Thank you GOTD and Aiseesoft.

68% THUMBS UP only?

Well, today they have used less proxies as usual to fool the GAOTD system, and they did so probably after reading my past comments concerning previous giveaways of theirs....LOL!

Anyway, looks like a pretty GOOD tool for Apple junkies, but 80 bucks for a tool like this is sheer madness in my view!

And anyway, if you had taken advantage of previous Leawo similar product, given away here a few days ago, you don't need this...

BEST FREE ALTERNATIVE

http://easeus.com/mobisaver-mobile.htm

But if you use this FREE App manager and File Browser for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, you probably don't need it...
