All-around iPad/iPhone/iPod solution to transfer and manage different types of media to and from your devices.
The program can do very well in converting DVD, ISO images, IFO folders, CD, audios, and various of video files like AVI, MPEG, MKV, WMV, M2TS, MTS, MOV, H264, etc to iPad/iPhone/iPod movies and music, and then transfer to the devices conveniently. So you can enjoy so much movies and music on device with just one tool.
In addition to converting different types of video to iOS formats, iTransfer Platinum also allows you to download content that is already on your iDevice. This is useful if your music or video library is accidentally lost. Files can also be transferred from iTransfer Platinum to iTunes for automatic syncing and to keep all content in one place.

All the contacts listed by groups, such as all contacts, on my device, iCloud and email address (Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail etc.), can be read and viewed clearly by ImTOO iTransfer Platinum.
One downside to this iTransfer Platinum is that there is no connection to the iTunes or app store. So to download any new music or apps you would have to do it on your device or in iTunes and then sync with iTunes after you have used iTransfer Platinum. But you do get a lot more control over your device with ImTOO’s software. You can establish photo albums and playlists as wish, preview media files within the built-in player, transfer files between several devices through simultaneous connection of multiple iPads/iPods/iPhones, logon the most popular online video websites (including YouTube, Metacafe, Dailymotion, Break, Vimeo, Revver, Blip, Vidilife and Stickam) in embedded web browser to download online videos to devices, etc.
