Excellent app. I have been using it for many years much to my satisfaction. With MacOs 10.13.3 all of a sudden, a blank window appeared in iBackup Viewer and the app could not find my iPhone backup, any longer I mailed a request to IMT Support <support@imactools.com> and within minutes they solved my problem that some other app had interfered with iBackup Viewer finding the appropriate localhost like this: 1, open Terminal 2. enter "sudo nano /etc/hosts" 3. check if it misses record like "127.0.0.1 localhost" if it does, just enter these lines 127.0.0.1 localhost 255.255.255.255 broadcasthost ::1 localhost Great customer service

This has been a nice little product over the years and you can't beat free when it comes to price. BUT, these updates released every few days has gotten really annoying and ridiculous! Test your product thoroughly BEFORE releasing it and stop using your loyal users as beta testers.

Good idea to make the backups readable. It is very handy to recover only the data you need (e.g. some photos or messages) just in several clicks. Free version was enough for me to complete my task but I will consider buying a license.

ibackup viewer did not work, I have tried to contact the company several times and they have not responded. I think that's sadly because their product sucks and they don't want to give me my 39.95 back!

i'm really enjoying this app except for one thing, i recently switched my sim card from my old phone to my dad's old phone (more memory on his). ibackup will let me access the old phone and it's info but not the new one. there's a padlock on the listing and i cannot for the life of me figure out how to unlock it. help?

This is listed as free, but several key features are only available in the $50 Pro version, like copying files out of the backup, and working with encrypted backups. I don't know if MacUpdate's page design allows it, but it would be useful to identify both prices (free/$50) at the top of the listing.

SMS messages are often attributed to the wrong sender. i.e. reversed in a two person convo. Crashes attempting to save sms msgs to a file. user list in SMS is mostly just numbers, very few have the name associated with it that displays on the phone.

This app is very useful and a great alternative for the costly versions on the market. The only problem I did find is that if you click applications it has to analyze each application that is stored in the back-up. It wasn't a real issue for me as I carry very few apps on my phone, but I see how that can be problematic for someone who has a great amount of applications. It is still a GREAT app tho!

I've just downloaded the App and it finds everything I was looking for EXCEPT, in the Photos element where I would like to copy or save the videos made with my iPhone. Photos are shown as thumbnails but images for videos shown as blank rectangles! Is this something that I'm doing wrong, or a limitation with the App? If the latter, anything in the pipeline? Many thanks, in anticipation...

Nice App, works fine. I had to reset-to-Factory my new iPhone 5 without restore the Backup because of problems with 3G connections. With this program I saved all my thousands of SMS to PDF and Textfile from the old backup. Great!

When I'm viewing the text messages, I note that there are big gaps in the displayed messages. For example, I might see a gap from May XX until September XX for a text conversation with a certain person, but on my phone there are a number of messages between that iBackupViewer is not seeing. I suspect this is an iOS6 thing... One hint iOS6 is not correctly supported is that dates on messages all say 1981, making them off by 30 years, which is also the difference between Mac Asolute Time and unix epoch time, and iOS6 started using Mac time for all messages.

Sorry, this should have gone in "troubleshooting" -- I accidentally posted it in reviews.

As far as I know the only free app to backup your iPhone. No bells and whistles but it works nevertheless. 5 stars !

Great little app - very useful. I love the way it displays the SMS messages (easy to see the flow of a 'conversation', but wish it would export the text like that (hard to see who is texting what, which are incoming/outgoing, and it appears to only export every text, rather than selected users. Otherwise, it's a very welcome little app - many thanks for creating it!
