Best music management software

Specs: iOS7, N/A
Folks, I've been looking for alternatives to iTunes to manage my music for iPhone and iPad. I understand Floola does not work for iPhones, so that's out.

I know there are programs out there (I've Googled,) but I'd like to hear recommendations as to what others are using.

Thanks.

For some reason, I'm unable to edit my original post. I should have added that I want to use the program on Windows 7 in addition to my iPad and iPhone. So, I think what is needed is an installable program for Windows that might also be available as an app for the iOS devices.

Hi "Jeffiner"

Not sure if this is what you're looking for; but it does allow a decent alternaitive the dreaded iTunes...

https://imazing.com/?gclid=CPf21qKv...

I have used it to do most of whit is says it can do; including moving music around...

It does work on Windows and Mac. I'm mainly on Mac these days (Mavericks on main system) and my brother is on windows...; so I know it works on both OS from experience.

However... whereas in the recent past it was also possible to access individual apps on an i-Device and copy/restore them accordingly - to or from a backup or store - now it seems that with iOS8.x this option has disappeared... I was on iOS-7 previously of course when it ":all worked".

I have emistled them to see what's going on... - sadly have yet to receive a reply. I used an earlier support emistle as an address. (I had a few discussions with them re' various things I and my brother wished to do, and they were reasonably helpful then). I couldn't find anyway to get to them directly - as a new inquiry when I went to their web-ste. It appeared not be working properly and thus one wasn't able to post new messages to support or customer service or whatever...

I have just emistled them again - and it would appear that aspect of their support area is now "functioning again". Remains to be seen whether or not they respond...

Thanks, trav. I'll take gander at this software and see what I think. I haven't made the jump to iOS 8 yet, so this may work for me.

mmm Had I known that an iPad2 would be a little slower on iOS8x and also a few things that "used" to work in iOS7 -would suffer a little... I wouldn't have gone over to iOS8.

The "word on the street" however is that iOS-9 "may" actually improve battery life at least; and also "may" improve performance "ever so slightly".. However as with all "gnu OS " (regardless of whose...) the caveat (and this includes from my local Apple-land techies) is to wait for a couple of updates to go through before trying iOS-9...

I have just a an acknowledgement fro iSaver tech support acknowledging my emistle to them; so hopefully I can get more current info re' how iOS-8 has affected iSaver. functionality.

Will keep you posted...

The app was the only one I could find that seemed to really allow more or less total access to and control of the contents on an iPad... There were a couple nf minor niggles - mainly due to the way Apple locked a couple of things down; but there was an easy workaround which resolved/accommodated them...

Have you ever heard about Syncios manager? It is designed for iOS devices. If you want to manege your iPhone/iPad/iPod data, you could use this freeware.
It can help you transfer your music between your iOS devices and computer. You can delete and arrange the files.
Except that, you can make iPhone ringtone. download music videos from internet.

Hi Jeffiner... - an update on iMazing...

They did reply to my latest emsitle (I suspect the previous didn't arrive, or wasn't passed on to the appropriate section...)

The confirm that Apple locked down iOS 8.3 onwards- preventing assorted third-party utilities accessing the apps folder content on iDevices...

However it can be accessed from a backup!

Also they have just releases their latest version - which is also iOS9 friendly...

It is possible to access app folder in that version - via the file system folder in the utility... Be it on the device as is - and of course a backup...

So overall they appear to have resolved to some great degree the PAI approach from Apple-land and one can access apps oneway or another...

They have three levels of license; and I have gone for the middle one (5 users) as it's the best overall I suggest for most domestic users. It allows Windows, Mac OS and Linux... for each user; and upto 3 computers per given user...

Thanks so much trav. When I was looking at that. I realize that they were DiskAid, or had bought DiskAid, so if I go for the License version, I get a discount. I'm seriously considering it.

Thanks, too, Joannana, I'll look into Synchios Manager as well.

I appreciate all the helpful advice. We really do help each other around here. :) Even if trav can't spell. :þ
