Guide Review - iCopyExpert Review
There's not a lot to say about iCopyExpert. It does one thing, and doesn't offer any of the additional features found in competing programs. That means it can't transfer calendars, address books, iBooks files, or photos.
Despite focusing only on transferring the contents of your iPod/iPhone library (in this case, encompassing both music and video, but not video stored in the Camera Roll), iCopyExpert is fairly slow. In my standard test, it moved 590 songs/2.41GB in 39 minutes, making it the third-slowest transfer program I've tested.
Making the transfer may be confusing for some novice users. The program requires the user to navigate through their hard drive to find the iTunes folder into which to transfer the songs (easy for someone who knows where it is, but it may be tough for beginners) and lacks any way to tell what songs on the iPod are in iTunes and thus don't need to be transferred.
With its bare bones feature set and slow speed, iCopyExpert doesn't have a lot to recommend it. It's not a bad program, but there are a number of other programs in the same price range that are faster and more feature rich.
