In this video you’ll learn how to transfer text messages from your iPhone to your computer. If you ever need to copy or backup your iPhone SMS text messages (or even iMessages) to your computer, whether it’s a PC or a Mac, you can do that with a useful app called BackupTrans iPhone SMS Backup & Restore. Click the link for your operating system at the top of this description. That link will start an instant download of the BackupTrans program so you can try it out and transfer your text messages from your iPhone to your computer. This application is 100% safe to use.

Once you have this application downloaded, run the setup file to install the program on your computer then open it up. Connect your iPhone to your computer using the USB cable. It’ll recognize your iPhone. Then you have 3 things to do before you can transfer text messages from the iPhone to your computer. First if you have your iPhone protected with a passcode you need to enter your passcode on your iPhone so it’s unlocked. Then make sure you turn off iCloud Backup on your iPhone and disable iPhone backup encryption iTunes. Once you’ve done those things click OK. After it finishes backing up your iPhone you can see all your iPhone text messages that you can transfer to your Mac or PC.

If you click the arrow next to your iPhone device in the left-side column it gives you a list of all your SMS conversations that you can back up. If you want to transfer text messages from a certain conversation with a person just click on that person’s name to choose that conversation and then choose the text messages that you want to copy to your computer. Once your texts are selected, you can go up to the top menu and choose “Backup SMS to local database” or “Export SMS to file”. Then give your file a name and choose the file type that you want to save it as. If you want to save it as a Word document you can. You now see it has successfully exported the text messages to the computer.

Browse to the folder, and you should be able to open the document that has the text messages in it. That’s how easy it is to transfer text messages from your iPhone to your computer. It works with Windows PC and Mac. Again the links are at the top of this description. Download that application and give it a try.

Instead of spending a bunch of money on the iTunes store and buying movies through iTunes you can actually copy any movie from any DVD onto iTunes and then sync it to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. That’s what I’m going to show you how to do today.

To do this you’ll be using DVD copy software from a company called Digiarty. They make the best DVD copy software out there. It’s by far my favorite – very easy to use, fast, and high quality. The software is available for Windows and Mac. The first thing you want to do is click the link at the top of this description for a free trial download of this software. If you’re a Windows user click the Windows download link. If you’re a Mac user click the Mac download link. That link will start an instant download of this program. Download and install the application from the link above, and you’ll be able to try it out for free. If you like it you can register for the full version right from the program itself (at a special discount!)

Once you have this application installed, it’ll be called MacX DVD Ripper Pro for Mac users. It’ll be called WinX DVD Ripper Platinum for Windows users, but they both work exactly the same so you can follow along. Next, insert the DVD movie that you want to put on iTunes into your computer’s DVD drive. Then click the DVD button at the top left of the application. The source DVD disc window will pop up, and you should see your movie’s title in the box then click OK. Once it loads your DVD movie you’ll see the output profile window pop up. Since we’re putting the movie in iTunes you’ll choose Apple device then choose iTunes video. If you plan on putting the DVD video on a device after it’s in iTunes you can choose whatever device you have (iPhone, iPad or iPod) instead of iTunes video.

Choose the “Recommended” option for iTunes then click Done. The program automatically selects the main movie file. You can see that Title 1 is selected. Go towards the bottom, and you’ll see a destination folder option. This is the folder where you’re going to copy the movie. If you click Browse you can choose any folder where you want to save the movie then click Open. Now all you have to do is click the Run button in the bottom right, and it will start copying the movie to your computer.

This is a brief overview and tutorial video over the new version of MacX Video Converter Pro. This is a premium application for the Mac from www.macxdvd.com. If you’re a Mac user and you’re looking to convert video files to to other video file formats or to audio file formats, if you want to record your Mac screen, if you want to create photo slideshows, then this program is for you. You can try it out for free if you click on the link at the top of this video description. That will start an instant download so you can install it and try it out for free. If you like it you can register for the full version later. If you don’t like it you can delete it, but I’m pretty sure you’re going to like this application.

MacX Video Converter Pro 4.0 Features

Let’s quickly look at the main features: HD video converter, fast speed, high quality, records your iSight camera, records your Mac screen so you can make a screencast, or you can remove DRM from videos. It has a photo slideshow maker. You can edit the video and audio files that you’re going to convert. You can trim them, crop them, even add watermarks, and obviously you can convert any video file to an iPhone, iPad, or iPod compatible format. So without further ado let’s open this app up and play with it. Are you excited as I am?

Here’s the home screen of Mac X Video Converter Pro 4.0. On the top menu you can choose from any of the features that we just went over: the video converter, photo slideshow, download YouTube videos, record your iSight, record your Mac screen, and the trash icon clears out all the jobs that are in your queue. Click the first button to add the videos that you want to convert. Let’s say I have an FLV file that I want to convert on my desktop. I’ll just choose that. Now here’s the output profile window. This is where you choose the file format that you want to convert your video to. I have an FLV video, and let’s say I want to convert it to MP3. I can choose “To Music” MP3 recommended. If I want to convert it to an iPhone video file format I can choose Apple device then iPhone video and choose my iPhone model (same with iPad & iPod). You can convert MP4, MP3, FLV, AVI, WMV, MPEG, MPG, MOV, etc. You can do all kinds of stuff, even convert videos to a compatible format for a Microsoft device, Android tablet, Android smartphone, YouTube video, etc.

So let’s just say I want to convert this FLV file to an MP4 video file so I can put it into iTunes. I’ll just choose Mac general video. MP4 video is automatically selected, the recommended option then click Done. The video is now in the queue ready to be converted. If you click Edit you can see all the editing options that you have. You can adjust the volume, subtitles, trim it down. You can adjust the start and end time. You can crop and expand it, and you can even add a text or image watermark. That’s pretty cool. Click Done.

If you have multiple videos that you want to convert you can add more in the queue. Let’s say I want to convert the FLV file to an MP3 file. I can add it again and click the Settings button and change it to MP3. Alright so now I’m converting FLV to MP4 and FLV to MP3. So I’ll just hit Run, and the conversions will start.

When the conversions are complete the window will pop up and it will have your final converted videos in a folder on your Mac. I can add those into iTunes now and put those on my iPhone, iPod, or iPad. You can do that with other devices as well. That’s the main feature of Mac X Video Converter Pro, but it does have extra features as well like we went over earlier. You can make a photo slideshow, download YouTube videos, record your iSight camera, and record your Mac screen. So as you can see this is a very powerful and useful application. If you’re a Mac user and you want to be able to convert any video file, edit and trim converted videos, record your Mac screen, and do all kinds of other cool stuff then this is definitely an app to have. Again the link is at the top of this description. You can click that, and it’ll start an instant download where you can download and try it out for free!

How to Transfer Music from iPod, iPhone, or iPad to Any Computer

How to Transfer Music from an iPod, iPhone, or iPad to Any Windows Computer

Click here to download Leawo iTransfer (Free trial; $19.95 for full version)

What if your computer suddenly crashed and you lost everything in your computer’s iTunes library? But all your music was still on your device (your iPhone, iPod, or iPad) and now you need to transfer all the music from your device back to your computer. This is how to do just that! In this tutorial I’ll show you how to transfer music from an iPod, iPhone, or iPad to your computer. The program is for Windows, and it is called Leawo iTransfer. You can start a free download by clicking the link at the top of this description. It doesn’t just transfer music either. It transfers photos, videos, apps, PDF documents, and songs – everything. The first thing you want to do is make sure you have iTunes installed.

Once iTunes is installed on your computer, the next thing you want to do is click the link above to start a free instant download of Leawo iTransfer. This is the program that you’ll use to transfer all the music from your iOS device back to your computer. Once the download is complete, install iTransfer and open it from your Desktop. The free trial version will let you transfer up to 100 files from your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to your computer. So if you only have 100 files to transfer then you can use this totally for free. If you have more than 100 files you can purchase a registration code that will give you unlimited transfers.

The next step is to connect your iPhone, iPod, or iPad to your computer using the USB cable. Once your device is connected if iTunes comes up just minimize it. Now in the iTransfer program you should see your device in the left hand side column so click on your device. Now you can transfer the music from your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to your computer very easily. Click on the Music section. All the songs are selected by default so if you want to transfer all songs to your computer’s iTunes library just click the “Transfer” button. It shows a list of all the songs that are going to transfer. If you see iTunes in the list you can click “Transfer Now”, but if you don’t see iTunes you can click the “Save To Folder” button and click “Change”.

Since you already have iTunes installed you can save it to a special folder called Automatically Add to iTunes which will automatically transfer and add the songs to iTunes once you transfer them to your computer. Here’s how to get to that folder. Click your profile name’s folder, then My Music, then iTunes, then iTunes Media, and the Automatically Add to iTunes folder should be in there. Choose that folder and click OK. You don’t have to save your files to that folder. If you want to choose another folder you can just choose whatever folder you want, but I just like to save it there because it makes the process a bit easier. Once you have your folder selected that you want to transfer the music to, click “Transfer Now”. When the transfer is complete you can open iTunes. If you saved your songs to the Automatically Add to iTunes folder they will automatically be in iTunes. If you saved it to another folder just go to that folder, and your songs will be there. That’s how to transfer music from an iPhone, iPod, or iPad to your computer. It’s very easy to do with Leawo iTransfer.
