I have a sneakin' suspicion that it might not be fully Apple approved:
< http://www.filetransferipad.org/ >

Personally I just stick to iTunes for music, and if I need to find
where iOS has stashed stuff then FileApp or FileApp Pro might help you.

When it comes Photo transfers, and avoiding Apple's photostream, I am
very satisfied with PhotoTransferApp.

Everything that is designated by the apps on the iPhone as to be backed
up. For example, it doesn't backup anything designated as a temporary
file (caches, etc.), nor does it back up media for the Music and Videos
apps (since they are already in your iTunes library or whereever else
you got them from originally), nor does it back up yet another copy of
photos that were synced from your computer via iTunes (but it does back
up the camera roll).

Yes, iTunes does back up the Bento database. I also have Bento, and its
database was still there when I switched to a new iPhone and restored
from the backup of my old iPhone.

(I then had to go through a re-sync process to get Bento on the Mac to
recognise the new iPhone as the one it was syncing with, but that is a
separate issue.)

it does, other than some passwords by design, which are easy to reenter.

you don't need anything else. that's the point. his piece of **** spam
app is not needed.

itunes will back up documents from apps along with everything else.

because it doesn't run on the iphone or ipad. it runs on the mac or pc,
so no app store is needed. plus it's spam and completely unnecessary
anyway.

getting error while syncing iPad, no problem you can sync you device without using iTunes applications, if you want to transfer your files safely then advised to use third party tool.

The issues I have with cloud is that it has a limited space unless you want
to pay for more storage space.
It takes time to upload data and some of us have a limited amount of data
we can upload or download per month.
Should I trust my private files to iCloud such as bank account numbers on
documents etc?
Is iCloud any safer than copying data to a hard drive.

it's more than enough for backing up app data, which is generally very
small.

that's an issue, and that's why itunes can be a better choice in that
situation.

this idiot spammer was pushing his crappy software, which doesn't do
anything that can't be done already.

only if they're encrypted by you first. there are apps that do that,
but not all do.

depends what you mean by safer. it's safer if your house burns down,
since icloud will still be there. it's not safer because someone else
might be able to read your data unless you encrypt it first.

I understand.

The problem is getting access to the data to encrypt it as iPad does not
have folders that can be accessed apart from folder that stores photos etc.
Apps seem to have their own location to store data which can't be accessed
by opening a folder. However in the case of Bento its possible to password
protect the data. I hope that in password protecting Bento's data that it
can still be backed up.

that doesn't matter. an app can do its own encryption.

some password manager apps will encrypt the data before storing it on
the phone, which is then backed up or pushed to the cloud.

bento data is backed up in a normal backup, just as anything else is.

whether it's encrypted or not, i don't know. i don't use it.
