There are quite a bunch of programs like iLike – powerful, feature-rich iTunes-replacements/alternatives that help you manage content on your iPhone/iPad/iDevice – but iLike is probably the closest to being the best alternative to iTunes.
For those who are tired of iTunes (or where iTunes doesn’t work correctly), iLike could be your best bet. iPhone/iPad users who need a perfect software tool to manage, optimize and transfer files (music, photos, videos etc.) which acts almost like iTunes but is not – iLike is your perfect companion.
At its core, iLike is much more than a file transfer or manager for your iPhone. It works to clean up your iPhone and get rid off temporary files, caches, cookies and all those failed-sync media that occupy a large chunk of space. In fact, this one reason is valid enough to keep iLike and use it occasionally.
The best use of iLike comes when you use it frequently to clean up stuff on the iPhone. A host of temporary, cache and cookie files get stored over time. All of this is small but across a small period of time, the total collection becomes large enough to eat up some space. iLike will help you clean these up.
iLike is also a powerful file explorer for those who are inclined to dig deep into the iPhone/iPad. Obviously, that’s risky but there are those of us who like to tinker with the file manager. There’s a plethora of file managers and iLike provides a simple interface but it’s quite perfect.
Transfers, Backups and More
While tooted as File Transfer, iLike actually lets you export all data (music, photos, videos, apps etc.) from your iOS device to your local storage. This is more like a backup option but segregated, this means you can individually access the content from the local storage on your system.
iLike also comes with backup capabilities – you can create backups and explore iTunes-backups.
