CopyTrans4: iPod / iPhone Transfer, Backup & Recovery Utility

iPod & iPhone users would know that transferring and synchronizing stuff like music, videos, photos etc from the device to the computer or iTunes is not always a smooth process. iTunes isn’t a hassle-free software and a lot of times things aren’t transferred or synchronized the way we would want them to be.

CopyTrans 4 is a smart utility that cuts down the bloat and brings to you better organization and backup of your music, videos, photos, podcasts etc in iPod or the iPhone. The new versions supports voice memos and MMS videos and has a “Smart backup” feature that helps you customize the transfer of your stuff from iPod to your PC. You can also backup artworks, preserve songs order in playlist, copy ratings & play counts, get data from the iPod to the right iTunes categories and do much more.

I am actually holding a license giveaway for CopyTrans now.


Copytrans looks like something I could use. I’ve been wanting to get away from iTunes for a while now!

@Stephen, if you can shoot me a copy. I’d appreciate it! :)


Nice software, but it runs not smoothly on my windows 7.


@maccolar @danny Sounds like spam to me. CopyTrans looks way better and since there is a free contest on rivarhatt I will go there…
