This app is still my favorite for accessing stuff on my iphone. Is great to be able to export entire message text into xls (or pdf)... It is a bit expensive, but upgrades have been free since the beginning, so it's been cheap overall.

The App was awesome until my Mac upgraded to Catalina and Itunes was gone. Phoneview runs through Itunes so if you do not have Itunes then don't waste your money. If they would fix it I would give them a 5 star!

Highly recommended! Bought it many years ago and still getting free updates. Worth the one-time expense.

Terrible support, the program never worked, I followed all the instructions. They were super slow at getting back to me. When they responded they would tell me to get an external usb/external drive and i did and there was still an error.

PhoneView has been a great program. But it is now broken when I updated to MacOS Catalina 10.15. PhoneView hangs looking for a version of iTunes which no longer exists in Catalina. Please fix this!

Invaluable. Lets you do essential things like save text conversations to PDF, and so, so much more. Actively developed (not sure about the guy who called it abandonware). Bear in mind that iPhones have a lot of storage space, for a lot of data, so it needs to transfer to your Mac and that, unavoidably, takes time. Expect the first-time load to take quite a while.

This feels like abandonware which is a shame. It barely works anymore and takes FOREVER to load. One trick I realized is that you cannot let your phone sleep while Phoneview laboriously takes its time to transfer your phone's list of messages, email, etc. So you have to sit there and use your finger to wiggle the screen back and forth for almost fifteen minutes until the app to completes its scan. Ugh. Theoretically you could just play a half hour YouTube video but Phoneview doesn't recognize my iPhone 5s with iOS 10.3.3 via USB but it will by wifi, so choking up my wifi downloading a YouTube video will just take longer.

I've been using Phoneview for years, since version one, but it's probably time to move on. It seems like the developer already has.

The developer of this app has clearly stopped caring about this app. Trying to use this app to archive your Messages onto your computer is a ridiculous exercise in frustration, because this app hasn't improved a bit since all the way back in iOS 8!! It doesn't support any of the newer IOS 9 or iOS 10 or iOS 11 features, such as "tapping back" on a message with a thumbs up, a thumbs down, or a heart symbol. It actually TYPES THE WORDS of what you did, instead of showing the symbol! Another example: this app doesn't show the URL previews in the Messages archives, even though that is now supported in iOS 9, iOS 10, and iOS 11. This app even shows many of your Message comments in the WRONG ORDER ALTOGETHER within the Messages thread, because this app doesn't seem to evaluate the "full timestamp" of when each message was sent -- it just looks at the hour and time. The developer of this app has clearly checked out altogether.... he doesn't seem to care about improving this app anymore. Terrible lack of care & attention from the developer of this app. Seriously, Mr. Developer -- just discontinue this app if you're not going to keep it up-to-date, instead of frustrating your users!! THIS APP IS A WASTE OF MONEY.

Works great, no expensive upgrades like iMazing.. Compatible with latest versions of iOS (10 at time of this writing). No hassle install. Ecamm is doing some great work taking care of their customers by minimising friction.. Buy with confidence.

We didn't test the third party apps but wanted quick access to photos and music without going through the Apple nightmare apps (like Photos).
