        @alex5723 Please, tell us about this favorite utility you wish to recommend to us, as per the forum description:

        Have a favorite utility? A program (or app) that you can’t live without? Tell us about it.


        Personally, I’m among those that can’t stay far enough away from iTunes, and haven’t had it on any machine on the premises for over a decade.

          iTunes for me is an app ‘I can’t live without’ 🙂

          Sync my iPhone, iPad.
          Backup to iCloud and local computer
          Listen to Internet radio while working
          Copy music, video to iPhone…

        iTunes works flawlessly on my MacBook but IMO it’s just a necessary carbuncle on Windows… very prone to failure and – if you look on the internet – the reason for so many support queries dealing with its deficiencies.

        If I could find a decent, reliable alternative then I would. However, after trying several alternatives I’ve had to admit defeat and return to iTunes (on Windows – still my mainstay) and all its issues.

        It’s one of the reasons I’ve delayed moving my last remaining Windows 7 desktop to Windows 10. I just don’t relish moving my current iTunes library, backed up apps and iOS backups to a newer platform. I’ve had to fix so many other people’s iTunes issues that I have been delaying the inevitable angst.

          very prone to failure

          In all the years with iTunes on Windows (may many years) I has only one problem after a new version of iTunes stopped supporting ‘older video card’ on my aging Windows 7 so I couldn’t connect my iPhone 7/8 to iTunes.
          Switching to Windows 10 solved my problem.

          I saw a couple of days ago that Apple had issued a new iTunes (12.4.3) for older-video-cards.
