iTools In-Depth Review and Performance:
Personally, I have tested the iTools. The basic features like file transferring worked great and really fast. The GPS spoofing feature was also easy to use and it worked perfectly. The features you find on this program should work without showing any error. But, The problem exists somewhere else. When you first run the iTools, it may download the Apple driver to perfectly detect and work with iOS devices. But, That download and driver installation often fails with showing errors. At least, It happened with me. The second thing is pretty much annoying and probably it may encourage many users to avoid this software. Because when you try to install iTools on your PC and if you have bitdefender antivirus, that may detect it as suspicious software. It may be a false positive. But, It may create confusion in users find and the question may arise “Is iTools 4 safe to use?” So, The iTools team should take care of this thing and make their product more compatible with all major antivirus programs.
You already know about the cons. First one is, The Apple driver installation error and the second one is some incompatibility with antivirus programs. Else, The price is not cheap. Else, Some functionalities like WiFi sync requires iTunes installed on your PC.
The price starts at $30.95/PC for a lifetime. It has different other plans that you may find on their website. All plans include a lifetime free upgrading.
No doubt, the iTools has many useful features especially the GPS spoofing, battery master, etc. The performance in basic functionalities are good enough. Except some cons I have mentioned above, it is a useful iPhone manager. You can use it if you want. But, At first, Install the trial version to know about it more. If GPS spoofing is not a thing you need, you also may have a look at AnyTrans, IOTransfer, MediaTrans, etc.
