Our Review of Wondershare MobileGo for iOS

iTunes is an excellent tool for managing the content on your iOS device from your Mac. Unless you’d like to sync contacts, playlists, podcast or voice memos, etc. Unless you’d like to convert audio and video files to an iOS-compatible format. Unless you’d like to extract music from a video and upload it to your device in a compatible format.

Clearly, iTunes has some limitations. Wondershare’s MobileGo for iOS ($39.95, free demo with limited imports and exports) offers some nifty features that iTunes leaves out, making this application an excellent companion to Apple’s software.

MobileGo for iOS offer s easy iOS management and goes where iTunes won’t.

MobileGo’s interface is clean and attractive, and its large icons make it easy to figure out how to accomplish all of these tasks. There’s a tab in the left which has the options media, playlists, sms, contacts, photos toolkit, and even an option to connect another device. There’s another tab in the bottom center with the options such as copy iDevice to iTunes, export music to folder, some format conversion options for media files, finding duplicate contacts, and exporting contacts to outlook for backup purposes.


MobileGo facilitates an excellent transfer process for your music. It is a cakewalk of a process where you just copy playlists to your iTunes and back to your computer. MobileGo instantly recognises your iPad, iPhone or iPod when it is connected to your computer. The contents of your device will be displayed on the left side of the application, from where you can copy your music to your computer and vice versa.You can also copy videos, iTunes U and podcasts in a similar fashion. In case of a video that is not compatible to iOS, this application would automatically recognise it convert it into the desirable format.


iTunes users who have yearned to manage their contacts or view their text messages on a big screen will appreciate MobileGo’s approach. It lets you view entire messages threads, though you can’t compose messages, which would have been a nice touch. You can export message threads to your computer for backup, though. Its Media, Playlist, Photos, and Contacts tools are a bit more useful, as you can use each of these sections to add content to your device or sync it back to your Mac.

And users with more than one iOS device will appreciate how easily MobileGo allows you to transfer contents between them. The software recognizes multiple iOS devices at a time, and allows you to export content from one to the other easily. Transferring video to my iPad Air was a breeze, too, as I was able to convert and transfer a 30-minute television show over to my iPad in minutes.

For the most part, MobileGo for iOS includes many features, including a robust contact manager and file conversion tools, plus the ability to transfer content between two iOS devices, that make it worth its price.
