I have been with the app for a couple of weeks. Frankly speaking, this is the best transfer app I have ever used both for its functionality and usability, which is much simpler than iTunes for file transfer and library management. You will never mess your iPhone if you stayed with this app. And the import and export function are really flexible and human friendly. Although It costs a few bucks to get the entire function, it’s indeed well worth the money. Once you have the chance to test it out, then I dare to say you would never go back to iTunes.
