Wondershare TunesGo Review: Ultimate Phone Management Tool

When it comes to mobile phone management, we all download the standard software/suite which our mobile phone company provides us with. At the same time, we all know they are deficient in many aspects and lack in many advanced functionalities, on top of which some are laggy and many times unstable. Detection of a phone from another manufacturer can be an issue also which can be irritating if you carry multiple phones, from different manufacturers.

However, there are many Third-party tools online that let you manage your iOS or Android devices, but since spying and collecting data by apps is on a high, you can’t trust most of them quickly. Also, many of them lack in certain functionalities and capabilities when compared to other apps. So, in an urge of solving this situation, we came across many advanced phone managers and certainly fell in love with this: TunesGo from Wondershare.

Installation

You can download TunesGo from their official website, and the application is available for Windows and Mac. The installer is a small sub 1 MB file, and after that, it downloads the additional resources using your internet. The installation is a straightforward and quick process (although the quickness will depend on your internet speed).

TunesGo works with Android devices running 2.2 or later, as well as iOS devices running iOS 5 and later. To make the app work with your Android and iOS devices, you need to follow some steps first.

iOS
1. After installation of TunesGo, launch the app on your PC.
2. Connect the iPhone or iPad to your PC, and unlock the device.
3. You’ll see a pop-up message on your iOS device to ‘Trust This Computer‘. Press ‘Yes‘ when the prompt appears.

Android
1. After installation of TunesGo, launch the app on your PC.
2. You can skip to step 3 if you have Developer Options enabled. If not, then head to Settings, and tap on Build Number 7 times.
3. Go to Settings, Developers Options and enable USB Debugging.
4. Connect your Android device to your PC via the USB cable after unlocking. After that, you will need to give your PC permission to use the device you have connected with USB Debugging, so follow the prompts on your Android device.

NOTE: Without enabling USB Debugging, TunesGO will not work on Android. To access the advanced features, the app needs to access advanced settings directly for which Debugging is necessary. If you are having difficulties with enabling Debugging, take a look here.

These steps will allow you to connect your iOS or Android devices to TunesGO, and from there you can begin operating the app.

Features

This section is where the application shines thoroughly. TunesGo has an unbelievable number of features when it comes to a phone managing software. Whether you’re using an iOS or an Android device – some of the functionalities may differ, but both of the mobile Operating Systems have superb support using TunesGo.

  • Transfer your music between your PC and smartphone without having to worry about converting anything – as the app manages that automatically. Along with your music, all of your playlists, podcasts, audiobooks etc are also carried forward.
  •  Create a backup of the music content which is on your mobile device, and after that you can rebuild the database, and organize your music. The app does a fantastic job at organizing your music, as it automatically arranges all of your music in order – as well as deletes any duplicates (if any) and downloads the cover art for the music as well.
  • Backing up of photos and videos is also made easy with the use of TunesGO.
  • App manager helps you take backup of your apps in a batch if you need to, which can save a lot of time. With the use of a single click, you can uninstall and install multiple apps.

  • You can add, delete or edit playlists directly from the app as well.
  • Can import and export text messages without any restriction.
  • Recording music is also available via the app, and you don’t have to tend for other third-party applications.
  • It can ROOT certain android devices as well. The number of devices isn’t high, but if your phone is one of the supported ones, then the process is easy (and you don’t have to fiddle around the recovery).

Interface

The interface of the application is neat and clean. There are multiple sections or tabs of the app you can visit, such as Home, Music, Videos, Photos, (Contact) Information, Apps, Explorer, and Toolbox, and all of them have additional features within.
