    "This is amazing. Easy download, no issues. Anytrans let me get all my itunes songs onto my phone and my ipad. I was having major issues and everytime I synced my iphone my track library would get all messed up. This gives me all the benefits of using itunes but with none of the headaches. Really like that I can create playlists too. The best part is being able to transfer music to my old phone which I always take travelling and to concerts because I don't care if it gets damaged or stolen. "

    "I already had an old Dropbox account dating back years, which I hardly used due to the nature of my work, but I recently discovered you could use it for other things rather than files and photos. I've been using it for storing my music and moving it to my iPhone and thus bypassing iTunes and it really works well. "

    "When I got an iPhone after years of using Android, one of the things I feared most was depending on iTunes for all manner of syncing stuff. Enter iTools. Flawlessly allows me to keep iTunes off of all of my computers at the house. I don't think I used the free trial more than about 20 minutes before I was sold, picking up the Family License with absolutely no qualms."

    "Although this product is great for backing up data and downloading music to my iPhone, I have concerns due to it not being very safe. It's a shame because it does an excellent job but with everything i keep on my phone i can't take any chances. This is my lifeline and contains a lot of personal information. i do not want to take any chances with using a program that is not very safe. "
