iBackuper aims to be a Time Capsule for your Apple gadgets
We were recently tipped to an early release of
“yet another ipod backup tool” as it seemed. After obtaining a copy and running some tests, it seems that this one actually has potential.
The name of the tool is iBackuper and it aims to facilitate media management on iPhones, iPods, Ipads.
The primary function is creating “shadow copies” so to speak for the current state of one’s portable device. While Mac users have Time Capsule, iBackuper aims to do the same for Apple gadgets. We have ran some test backups on our second generation iPad2 and everything went as expected. Other devices should be supported as well. The program basically backups the full state of the device to your computer’s hard drive.. For instance, it could prove convenient if one decides to purchase a new iPod or iPhone – it’s possible to transfer data from old device to a new one fully. iBackuper can supposedly bypass iTunes and perform it’s independently from Apple’s music player.
Another possible use case for iBackuper – ability to copy files from iPods (iPhones, iPads) without having the device synced with iTunes. Say, you liked a song or video on your friend’s iPad and want to save it on your computer or your own device. iTunes won’t let you do that, but iBackuper will. Although this program just recently got released and has a few quirks here and there, we would see how it can be useful for an average idevice user. It has some valid use cases and should find its fans.
At the time of writing iBackuper was on a free 3 day trial, which should give your more than enough time to check it out for yourself. Link.
