For Apple users, iTunes library is an excellent music management program, and it provides a gateway to integrate with iOS devices on the marketplace. Generally speaking, iTunes is an ideal software to backup and restore iPhone, iPad or iPod devices, but it’s not the totally perfect tool. For example, you must backup all your iPhone/iPad/iPod content to computer, or must restore all your backed-up iOS data to device, which will waste your time a lot because you just need to backup or restore specific content such as music, movies, etc. That’s why iTunes Alternative – TunesGo software was developed.
The TunesGo software is able to backup your iTunes library to any computer or external hard drive, without losing data when you upgrade iTunes. You can selectively backup and restore your iTunes library content, including music, playlists, movies, podcasts, tv shows, iTunes U, and more. With TunesGo, you can transfer media files between iOS and iTunes, or transfer media files between iOS and computer. If you music files are compatible with iPhone/iPad/iPod or iTunes, never mind, TunesGo will help you convert your music files to a format supported by your iOS device and iTunes.
