When it comes to official desktop management tool for iOS devices, traditionally everyone uses iTunes. iTunes is the default tool to transfer files from PC or Mac to iOS devices. But the most popular default tool is limited, slow and not much user-friendly. Most of us are looking for the best alternatives to the iTunes for the easy transfer of files and usability.
If you are looking for a fully featured iOS desktop management tool, here is a lifesaver Wondershare TunesGo. It is not necessary to have an iTunes on your PC or Mac to sync your iOS device; Wondershare TunesGo has all the features and even more than iTunes.
What is Wondershare TunesGo?
It is a full-featured iTunes replacement for music management for iOS devices, allowing you to add tracks, organize and manage playlists, delete tracks right from the device without taking them off your iTunes library.
How it works
After installation, connect the device to you PC or Mac. Any device connected to the system will be automatically detected by Wondershare TunesGo, and it will be populated by the media available in the device.
Like in iTunes the devices content is categorised on the left side panel. You can manage Media, Playlist, Photos, Contacts and SMS individually.
The user interface of Wondershare TunesGo is simply intuitive; it is not complicated as iTunes. When you click on Media icon on the left panel, the right side panel open with options like Music, Movies, TV Shows, Music Videos, Podcasts, iTunes U and Audiobooks. You can access these media options on the top of the user interface.

You can create playlists of your audio and video files to your device. Right click on the playlist to create a new playlist. And now click on the add button to import or add videos and music from your PC or Mac.
The main attraction of TunesGo is contacts editing and duplicate contacts finder. If you are using more than one cloud service, you will end up with a lot of duplicate contacts when all your accounts have been added to the device. The device becomes a mess and confusing to delete unwanted duplicate contacts.
Click on “De-duplicate” to find duplicate contacts. Any duplicate contacts that have the same name, phone number or email will appear on your screen for your review. You can then click “Merge Selected” to merge all the contacts or selected contacts.
Using contacts option you can add new contacts via your PC. Click “New” to open the “Add new contact” window; you can edit the name, email and phone number, or you can click “Add Folder” to add a website, date and address and more.

For deleting photos in iPhone, iPod or iPad is not a much user friendly option.

Using TunesGo Photo Library option select photos or albums you want to get rid of and then click “Delete”.
