Manages and creates backup points for your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch data. Provides the ability to modify iTunes backed-up files, by browsing through the files, and selecting the ones you need the most to transfer to your new devices, and maintains multiple backups.

iBackupBot for iTunes is a smart utility designed to help users browse, view, export and edit the backup files that are automatically created by iTunes. This way, every user who owns an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch can manage Apple mobile device backups.

The desktop application comes wrapped in a minimalist interface with big page sections for every functionality. There's a left side panel, a simple main menu with three action buttons, and a display area for browsing the iTunes content. Other than that, the provided settings are quite simple, the background theme has an outdated look, and the buttons feel clunky.

Even though the interface doesn't stand out, the provided features come to balance the general impression of the program. Having multiple editors for text, hex, database, images, messages, address book, or plists it is easy to export the data and manipulate it in your preferred applications.

The information can easily be accessed through simple tabs like Messages, Call History, Calendar, Contacts or History. It is also possible to modify the name of your carrier device, as well as the time string or the dock type.

In conclusion, iBackupBot for iTunes despite some minor visual inconveniences does deliver what you expect, and you should definitely give it a try.
