SynciOS helps you manage your Android or iOS device from your Windows PC. Moreover, it allows transfer, backup and recovery of the data on your portable device. The tool has an intuitive interface that no one can have problems to use. However, some inexpert users may find it difficult to make the necessary changes on the portable device to allow a successful connection. Fortunately, the application itself provides a step-by-step tutorial on how to do that.

After installing the product, you first need to connect the device via USB cable. Once a successful connection is established, an app is automatically installed on your mobile gadget. This way, you can perform most operations from not only your computer but the device itself. Unfortunately, a USB cable is absolutely required and there is no possibility of using a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection instead.

There are two editions of this product: the first of them is absolutely free but has limited features. The Ultimate edition, in turn, requires purchasing and allows many more operations. Allow me to mention those things that you can do at no cost first. One thing you can do is to transfer media, including photos, video and audio, between the connected devices. It can automatically scan the device to find this type of files, so you do not need to browse through the folders. Likewise, you can perform some operations involving media, such as creating ringtones, converting audio and video as well as downloading clips from various video-sharing sites. Good news is that it supports processing batches of download and conversion jobs. Moreover, it does not require additional intervention to convert and make the downloaded clips compatible with your device. SynciOS also lets you manage your contacts by creating new ones, merging lists and finding duplicate entries. Similarly, you can use it to manage your installed apps, including installing, uninstalling and backing up.

The Ultimate edition is much more powerful in terms of what it lets you do. Thus, in addition to those features already described, it also allows you to back up all mobile contents to your PC, which is like making a virtual image of your phone. In case you lose any data, it is then very easy to recover them from those stored on your machine.

In fewer words, I have to admit that there are several applications which are similar to SynciOS out there. Yet, I really liked this one. However, I will not discourage you from trying some of them and decide which works best for you. I really hope that in the future I do not need a USB cable to carry out at least some basic operations.
