iTunes and iCloud, as two official mobile device management applications developed by Apple Inc. Most iOS device users use them to backup and organize data of iPhone, iPad and iPod. At the time, there is more and more third-party data management software in the market. Below is the opinion of one iOS device user:
[I]â€œI do use iTunes to sync with my iPhone and iPad, as all my devices are Apples. The problem which I encountered came about as a direct result of syncing with iCloud, which I didnâ€™t want to do, but inadvertently managed to do so. When I chose to delete the sync with iCloud, I didnâ€™t realize that the information which had previously been stored on my computer and Gmail, would also be deleted.
I sync all my devices daily but, having only just re sorted everything painstakingly, I think I would probably be very reluctant to utilize a third party software. The simple reason being that I would be quite frightened of loosing anything again, or simply getting into a mess and not having the knowledge of how to resolve it. iTunes is very simple, in that I only have to plug in the devices and I have managed to learn my way around the various areas. Indeed, I had no problem whatsoever, until iCloud suddenly appeared!â€[/I]
