How does syncios work?
There are several rocking stuffs bundled with this app like audio converter, video converter, ringtone maker and iTunes backup. We will discuss all of these in details but before that, let’s have some deeper insights of this brilliant game changing software.
As soon as an iDevice gets connected to syncios, it automatically detects the device and displays all the relevant information about the device connected. The overall catchy design of the IOS device manager is also one of the reasons for its mass popularity. Being intuitively designed, syncios also provides a simple user interface unlike many other options available and thus enjoys a major advantage.
The jailbroken status is displayed within the syncios window which implies that it works equally for non-jailbroken devices as well as for jailbroken devices. This will surely be entertained by people who like to tweak into their devices and also like to squeeze out the same benefits enjoyed by a fresh piece of device. Additional information like the program version and memory stats can be seen in this front palette.
The left hand side vertical column displays all the pertaining sections of the device according to file types.
Further, installing of local apps from a PC and uninstalling of apps from the connected device can be performed with charm through syncios. Backup feature on the other hand provides with facility to save a copy of all of these apps aside in case of a rainy day!
From the left hand side within the ‘Tools’ menu link, when clicked, four tools viz. audio converter, video converter, ringtone maker and iTunes backup.
When audio converter is clicked, the window displays standard features which include adding and removing of audio tracks. In the right hand side, a selection drop down provides different formats in which the audio track selected could be converted into. Below this is located the conversion output location where the converted file would be saved. A checkbox below provides facility to automatically transfer the converted file directly to the connected device.
Similarly, on clicking the video converter, a similar user interface like the audio converter is presented with various formats of video in the right hand side of the window. MP4, MOV and M4V are the ones which are currently provided.
The next one in the list is the ringtone maker. With this feature one can create his own ringtone of choice. By browsing within the local PC, the desired track is to be uploaded within syncios. The two small functions do the job of playing the ringtone and listening to the ringtone respectively.
The SMS ringtone checkbox provides the facility to create a ringtone for SMS purpose and can be of twenty-five seconds of length in maximum.
The ‘Start’ and ‘End’ provides the initial and final time duration of the track considered for creating the ringtone. The ‘fade-in’ and ‘fade-out’ provides the timing feature of starting and ending the ringtone in a smoother way and not suddenly.
Below this, similarly like the other functions, provides a checkbox to transfer the ringtone directly to the connected device followed by the output location of the file.
Next comes the iTunes backup manager which is used for backing up the IOS devices for safety reason. This window provides with the details regarding the last time the backup was created, the version of it in the next column, the product and the serial number.
The next in the left hand side comes the media library from where all types of media files can be transferred or removed from the device.
Through ‘photo stream’ one can log in with the help of the Apple credentials and transfer photos from and to the connected devices and PC. With Virtual File System, system files and other media files can be imported and exported with great comfort.
