December 7, 2011 in Utility
[prMac.com] Geneva, Switzerland - DigiDNA today is pleased to announce DiskAid 5 for OS X and Windows, an update to their Utility app that enables the transfer of files between any iOS device and any OS X or Windows computer. An advanced complement to iTunes sync and file transfer/copy, the free version of the app allows unlimited file copying from any iOS mobile device to an OS X or Windows computer, plus access to the iOS File System, the Camera Roll, and external USB storage. The paid version adds transfer of SMS text messages, call history log, voicemail, voice memos, notes, contacts list, music, videos, and podcasts.
DiskAid transfers files to apps on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Users can easily browse the contents of iOS apps and transfer files to or from another iOS device. DiskAid automatically discovers all apps and enables the copying of files, folders, or even complete file trees.
The app permits the user to copy music and videos from any iOS device and transfer it back into iTunes. DiskAid 5 replaces DigiDNA's previous app, TuneAid, and includes a brand new, intuitive music and videos transfer wizard to copy media from any iPod, iPhone and iPad to a computer. Users can transfer music, movies, podcasts (audio & video), iTunes U, audiobooks, any playlist, or any specific selection or mix of these. The copy will include iTunes meta data: ratings, play counts, etc. DiskAid accesses the contents of any iPhone or iPad Camera Roll and permits the copying of all stills and videos shot with the device or synced with iTunes to an iOS 5 device.
