If you have an iphone (I don't anymore) and would love to look at everything in it for management, then I definitely recommend this software. This has been so useful in managing data in my previous apple devices and my friends who have come up to me to save them from any type of issue and having to grab important files from their phones(pics and videos) out and create a backup. Easy to use and great compatibility.

This review is for iFunbox Classic, NOT for the actual iFunbox. It works perfectly when it comes to installing or removing programs, backing up files and even saves, adding videos and music and in general doing everything you need. Sadly it does feel kind of crude and users that prefer friendly UI, should opt to the latest normal version. For the rest that are minimalists like me, this is perfect.

Going to the iFunbox site nowadays in the download section you can still see iFunbox Classic, but for some reason download is grayed out.

Main Site

The only way to get it anymore is visit http://dl.i-funbox.com/ where you can find a working link there. I have no idea why they disabled it from their main site, but I am glad their download site has it.

iFunbox Classic is a portable and old version of the program, which lacks probably a lot of features the new one has, with the main ones that I like it lacks, being all the advertisements. It does not intrude in any way and since it is portable no services or startup items are installed either. Currently, using the latest iTunes will render iFunbox Classic useless. If you want to be able to use Classic you need to have installed at most iTunes v12.4.3. Not sure if in the future that will change.

One more thing to mention, is that you can actually have iFunbox Classic (or I guess the normal version for that matter), without even iTunes installed. I have no idea why that is not really somewhere mentioned, or maybe I have not found the right place that mentions it, but it is possible to actually do it. Simply download iTunes v12.4.3 and then right click the exe and open it with 7zip or some other extraction tool. When you will open it, you will see a list of files.

Files

From all these files what you need are only the AppleMobileDeviceSupport and depending if you use the 32 or 64 bit version of iTunes, you will need the 1 or 2 different AppleApplicationSupport. With these installed, you can now use iFunbox and probably other alike managers like it.

All in all i find iFunbox Classic the perfect intrusive minimalist option and highly recommend it, especially when you want to use a portable manager at a friend's house, without installing iTunes.

As of iOS 8.3 you cannot delete photos. Not the software author's fault, but unfortunately because of Apple locking them out, this program is not useful to me.

I thought that I exit Windows and go to the Mac OS would be easier to communicate the iPhone. But from what I saw is much more complicated. On Windows I went to the music by Media Monkey and the rest used the iFunBox. Now on Mac OS, I still have not found any solution outside of iTunes that satisfied me.

iFunbox does a really bad job of copying big files from your iPhone onto your computer. It supports drag-and-drop, but not very well: when you drag and drop, the file that you dropped remains awkwardly in the foreground, even after you let go of it. It doesn't go away until the copy is completed. Additionally, iFunbox copies files from your iPhone into a temporary files folder, and then into your intended destination. This method is really unreliable. Sometimes, your copy gets stuck in the temp files folder, and never reaches your destination at all. That gets really confusing. Plus, if you're copying really big items such as movies, and you have iFunbox in your Dropbox (it is a portable app, after all), your Dropbox space gets screwed because the copy has to go into the temp files folder in your Dropbox first.

i-FunBox is the best browser for a Jailbroken iPhone. I went through Sharepod, iPhoneBrowser, iPhoneExplorer and a few others. It's super easy to use, the interface doesn't suck, the program doesn't crash and freeze like many of the others, and most importantly, it allows you to do more than just music and pictures. Access the way it should be, that's what i-Funbox is!

I second you opinion. All 3 are great and free but so far only iFunBox can backup/restore apps easily. I'd rank them as:

  1. iFunBox (easy and allows backup/restore of apps)
  2. iPhoneExplorer (allwos access to the phisical root and to 3rd party 'Apps' directory
  3. iPhoneBrowser (my 1st and trustful)

@oayz: I don't really see what's so great about iPhone Explorer. All three of those apps allow access to the root of your iPhone, and iFunbox also has shortcuts to the Cydia and App Store apps folders. Despite all of iFunbox's shortcomings (namely the extreme crappiness of its copy feature), it's still my preferred iPhone file browser. I only use iPhone Explorer because it's the sole iPhone root file browser available on Mac OS X.

@OmgItsTheSmartGuy - you're right, thanks for correction. I didn't recognize that "Raw File System" on i-FunBox is actually a "root". OK, so yes i-FunBox is the preferred apps by wide margin. One negative thing - it seems it doesn't have access to installed application list/urls ("/apps" under iPhoneExplorer - not available on iPhoneBrowser). Another thing which I'd love to have - music/video/photo copy to/from PC (neither of listed apps can do it - you need something like ImTOO iPhone Transfer for that).

Anyway - great piece of software and freeware as well!

@oayz: I've used iFunbox to copy my iPod music to my computer before, with the "Backup Music" section. I'm relatively sure that you can copy photos to your PC, too. I've never had to use iPhone transfer apps before, since I can do it all through iFunbox.

I'm not sure which app directory you're referring to, but App Store apps are located in /var/mobile/Applications of the root, while Cydia and pre-installed apps are located in /var/stash/Applications.

@OmgItsTheSmartGuy - I don't see any "Backup Music" section under iFunbox. Ringtones and iBooks are there but not Music. There is "Recover Music and Video" but it's empty. All my MP3s are under "//var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/Music" but file names are encrypted using 4 char format. Yes I can copy/backup them to PC but I can not ADD new files.

Regarding "/apps" - it's not AppStore or Cydia apps, it's something else visible only with iPhoneExplorer. It looks like URL. This is one of the entrees - "com.lexcycle.stanza". Have no idea what it is for :-(

Adding MP3s? That's an interesting feature. :P I just use iTunes.

The /Apps folder in iPhoneExplorer that you're talking about seems to contains App Store apps. Stanza is an App Store app by Lexcycle. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/stanza/id284956128?mt=8

iTunes? Or man why would we need this monster when we have iFunBox? :-)

Regarding /Apps - it's a list of "inverted" URLs for AppStore apps. Actual apps are under "\User applications". Still curious what are they for, why inverted and why only iPhoneExplorer shows them.
