SynciOS Data Transfer utility for Android and iPhone - Review

Looking for an utility which can make your data backup and restore easier across your iOS device, Android smartphone and PC as well? Here we review SynciOS which claims to do all these things and more. Read on!

SynciOS Data Transfer is a simple utility tool designed to help you transfer your data from one phone to PC and back in just one click. Your connect your iPhone or Android phone and a click is all required to complete the migration. Let's us do some deeper analysis.


SynciOS is a software available for free and has a lot of functionalities that you would be hard pressed to find for free. It recognizes you device as soon as you connect it and also finds out if the it jailbroken or not. You can connect it in both cases though. However, with Android smartphone you have to enable the developer mode and even then only some smartphones are able to connect with SynciOS.

Just like iTunes, in the left column you have a navigational index both for the software and the device and the main screen shows more information about like battery status and memory. You can transfer photos, videos, music, contacts, apps and ebooks to and fro between the device and your computer. While you can transfer multiple images at once, transfer of music can be done only one track at a time.

Compatibility issues are also taken care of by the software itself. If you have some audio or video which is not compatible with your iPhone or iPad, SynciOS will automatically convert it before transferring it to your handheld device.
SynciOS Restore
SynciOS is good in most of the areas but lacks in some features. Some of my contacts that I knew are in my phone did not appear in the SynciOS UI. However, as Google itself does a very good job of syncing your contacts online, contacts are probably not so unsecured without a back of them on your computer.
SynciOS requires developer permission on your Android smartphone so you will have to enable your phone to developer mode if you wish to use this software. Similarly for iPhone too you have a dependency of having iTunes installed on your computer.

Wrap up

One of the best thing is, the data restore is not limited to the phone from where you are downloading the data, but rather, SynciOS offers cross platform support which means your data is in raw form and can be uploaded to any Android smartphone or iPhone or even iTunes. You can connect both your phones to a computer and do a direct transfer between the phones without any requirement of first saving it on your computer. You can even sync your data with iTunes; just transfer your iPhone files to PC and then sync your iTunes with it so that you no longer have to keep duplicate files in your iTunes library.

The best part with this software is its cross platform nature. Being able to transfer your data directly between an iOS device and and Android is really a great thing.
