What a great idea. Too bad it’s so buggy.
I got this for one thing only: to download all of my messages and free up some space on my iCloud account. Once I had the app on my computer and my phone, though, I decided I was going to buy it… How perfect, to be able to really control everything that goes on between your phone and your computer! They even had a one time purchase option. Which is great, because I despise the whole “subscription” model. Unfortunately, it kept crashing whenever I try to download my messages. I tried everything, rebooting, and permissions, changing output directories. Nothing. Since I had to make a back up of my phone first, this whole experience was a colossal waste of time for me. No matter what I did, crash crash crash. No thanks.

Did not work and HORRIBLE Customer service
Wanted it for Whatsapp transfer. Their custom Whatsapp (necessary in the process) was outdated and therefore could not complete. Then the saga started trying to reach someone. Emails were unanswered, the chat didn't work, there's no phone support. You can't follow up with an unanswered ticket unless you cancel the previous ones. MONTHS. Got a response, clearly had not read the email explaining my problem. I explained it again. A different person who sends me a link that has nothing to do with my problem. The license I had paid for is now useless (had to change computers, was through a service, etc). They won't honor the initial license. It was awful. Such a waste of time and money. Ended up going for a different app (paid another license) that worked flawlessly and had proper customer support. DON'T GET THIS.

Does not recognize my music
I have a ton of music I wanted to transfer from an older iphone to a new one. This app doesn't see any of my music so, obviously, it can't be transferred. It did transfer my photos, but that wasn't what I needed the app to do.

Got this app for both iPhone (7plus) and my Mac as an Google-search recommendation to assist editing my playlists on my phone. It’s been an incredibly frustrating rabbit hole where the app from either end fails to recognize devices. From the computer side, it said it could not recognize the phone and said I had to reinstall the entire phone, which I did, overnight. Upon trying again the next day it gave the same response; that it couldn’t recognize the device and I’d need to reinstall the entire phone —again. Then from the phone side, the app indicates to connect phone to computer to initiate transfer of info. The phone was already connected and re-doing the connection only results in the same instructions. Awaiting tech support on these issues but there appears to be multiple levels down this rabbit hole.

Good software
This is a amazing software I have never seen before I transferred all my data and photos to another iPhone, before using the app, I had tried hundreds of other apps to transfer photos, photos were lost somehow or the connection stopped. I have never face the issue using the app. I recommend it to all my friends to use it. It is free and stable. Unbelievable. Super stable. There are photos quantities to show due transfer, accurate. You don’t worry to lose anything. Appreciate to have it.

🚫 Don’t waste your time ⏱ and/or 💸money 🚫
I’ve tried the paid mobile version and the desktop version without success. The mobile version does not recognize the other phone running the app on the same WiFi network. I’ve switched WiFi networks with no success. The desktop version gives me an error message that it cannot complete the process of reading the phone to perform a backup. I placed a ticket with iMobie and they recommended trying to backup using iTunes. What??!! If I could have used iTunes on my iPhone 7 Plus or iPhone 11 Pro Max to backup and transfer my data I wouldn’t need your app. Save yourself the trouble and money and find another application to transfer data. I’m sure I will get the canned response from the vendor for this review.

Worst program
I thought this would make my life simple because I have so many photos stored I needed to be able to transfer only few files here in there to my computer because the iPhone back up takes forever with the amount of data I have and a lot of times won’t connect and won’t back up. This is been six hours of frustration trying to get this thing to work and every time that I almost get it the app closes on my phone it keeps saying the connection of computer and device are lost and to check my Wi-Fi which they’re the same and to make sure the app is running on my phone. It appears to but then it’ll shut on my phone. The app is definitely glitchy. I feel like this has potential but right now it’s horrible

Caused problems
I got this app to transfer messages from my phone to my computer and then to my drive as I understand messages are deleted after a year. So I tried Anytrans and what a headache it turned out to be. It crashed completely my computer to the point where I had to download another operating system. I got my computer back up and running but it is horribly slow. In my Messages it changed the names to the their phone numbers. Just try looking up people to send them a text by recognizing their phone numbers. It erased the phone numbers and many of names in my phone contacts. The vendors I deal with all gone. This is the worse app I’ve ever downloaded. Just a garbage app.

Getting “MP3 Files” from Apple Music to Light Phone 2
I used this to help transfer my music files that I had purchased from ITunes back in the day to my Light Phone 2. I have no experience with music files at all. I was able to save them to my iCloud on my iPad as an interim step and then drag the files onto my playlist on the Light Phone 2 dashboard. For reference, I am a 43 year old woman and TERRIBLE with technology. This is the only app that worked as promised. It was very intuitive too.

Didn’t work
It transferred about 30 videos with no organization. Just lumped them into two folders labeled “photo video” and “photo video (1)”. None of my 5,000 photos transferred nor did the rest of my videos until a license is purchased. However, I kept getting an error message when I tried to purchase. If it can’t process an order, I dont have much faith in the software. There was no option to delete after importing, so that is pretty worthless anyway. Plus, for the videos it did transfer, they would not open and the error message read that “the item was encoded in a format that’s no supported.” I transferred the same items the slow way over usb, and had no problems.

Will Not Honor Money Back Gaurantee
I upgraded to a new iPhone and needed to get my pics and stuff off my old phone before resetting it and sending it to Apple for trade-in, do I purchased this price of crap. I tried using it to transfer my stuff from my old phone to my new one, but it would not do it. After several tries I clicked on the ? mark in the program and was transferred to a support page but could not find a solution. Therefore, I submitted a request for a refund, stating my reason. Six days went by and I received no acknowledgment/response regarding my issue. I paid through PayPal, to find the email to contact the company for a refund. However, I am being given the run around regarding a refund.

Doesn’t work
Spent an afternoon trying to copy music from an iPad to iPod, ios 12.4 on both. Connected but “crashes” after a minute when scanning the music library (moves to background; stops scanning). Contacted support that gave me a link for log download instructions but the link was to a general FAQ page and I couldn’t find the download instructions. Tried using Windows as an intermediary but after installing the app it insisted I download their version of iTunes, then told me I need to manually remove the OEM version and install their version. I really don’t want to use iTunes because it’s terrible and the primary reason for using this app.

Don’t buy this junk
I purchased this tool to be able to move all pictures and movies from my iPhone 13Pro Max to my windows based computer. During the upload, I took the option to convert movies from Apple’s new format to mp4 and then to erase them from my IPhone. This buggy software did not convert some off the movies correctly, rendering unusable and I lost previous memories. When I contacted their support team, their response was “sorry for any inconvenience this caused you”. One star is a generous rating. I guess you get what you paid for; s piece of junk

Used to work, now crap
I was the way to get media from the phone to the computer. Now they are putting their own "cloud" in the picture. scaan QR codes, Pipeline all your data through them. I could not simply get a video from my phone, to my computer,like I used to. It told me I had to run Anytrans on the phone too. I tried it on my old mchine that uwed to simply transfer files fom macchine to machine. It's trying to do too much, and trying to m=be the middleman for your data storage. No ratings, no reviews. I quickly wiped it from all my devices.

Doesn’t work
So after almost 12 hours trying to get my stuff transferred it waits until it’s almost don’t to state that my phone need to be reconnected. I never disconnected my phone in the first place. Then once I actually disconnect and reconnect it starts all over smh. All I want is to download text messages. I shouldn’t have to download my phones entire content I should be able to choose. But I’ll definitely be deleting this app as it won’t completely download it Keeps stopping. Don’t download it’s a waste.

This app is $40 a year. Don’t think you can use it for three days and then have access to your data. You pay or the data you have saved is inaccessible. Why don’t they just tell you that in advance and save the trouble of installing and then uninstalling. If you know the price upfront snd try it and like it then everything is fine, but if you are not willing to pay $40 a year, then don’t even bother with it.

Does not work.
This app does not work at all. None of the functions work. Click on any of those buttons or links in either desktop or iOS app and you get marketspeak with zero functionality or an error message that says you have to install the desktop app which I already did. I suspect there are hiddenspyware in my computer now. All the desktop app does is make you log in a half dozen times before taking you to a web page where nothing works either. Wasted an hour or more.

It works. But….
When I send a song to my email when using the share option,The album art and the artist titles are not sent with it. This is the reason I give this a three star rating. If it sent the album art along with the artist titles and no space marks in the song title itself, I would give it five. Any chance you could fix that?

Migrating Playlist or albums on iPhone to iPhone are a nightmare
Support had asked me to upgrade which I did 8.8xxx. Have been sending log files and testing different ways to copy over my old iPhone album and playlist. It’s clearly not tested and the development team have no tested solution. It’s been three weeks of back and forth not an inch of progress. Frustrating least to say. Using AnyTrans on iMac and iPhone. Engineer Support is terrible. Help desk is pleasant. Product quality down from a couple years back. Will seek alternate software.

Can’t connect or transfer Favorites album
I’ve been trying to move just my Favorites album to my desktop. I’ve tried several methods, which is to say that I know how to connect my phone to my computer. This app doesn’t know they’re connected, so I never even got off the ground. I poked around a bit to see if trying harder would be worth it. It wouldn’t be: it also doesn’t give the option to transfer the Favorites album. Other albums yes, Favorites, no. Deleting.

No way to cancel auto-renew subscription
No way to cancel auto-renew subscription. They advertise simple to cancel. They even provide you locations to find multiple links to cancel … however the links do not exist where they say they are located. Been trying to cancel for three hours. Even their links to contact the company give you a “404 Does not exist” warning. Based on my experience so far … this is a fraudulent scam.

Research this before buying
I wanted to transfer text messages and call logs from a Samsung GS9 to a new iPhone. This program says it will do it but it won’t. I will say that the Chinese developer was prompt in responding to my service request and tried to make it work. I ran out of time so they promptly issued a refund per my request.

It saved my apps and my files. I had an app on an old spare iPhone which means a lot to me. So I was able to move the app to my tablet with the AnyTrans app. I did have only used it once, with no problems with it and really intend to move some other apps to my own storage.

Don’t waste your time
Phones won’t stay connected long enough to transfer all files. When it stops in the middle of the transfer, there’s no way to restart it or to see exactly which files transferred without going through them individually - which I’m not doing for 1000+ pictures. Also, the pictures that did transfer and not in any order.

Coupd be much better
Files show up as well as end up in random order and don't transfer to the stock apps (and for music, the artwork doesn't appear at all). As for the app itself, is rather barebones and clunky. It's also unclear how to delete files and history (was able to do it once). Was hoping for something like CopyTrans or the like. Too bad.
