Release Notes

copyThing 5.0.3 – 5.1.3

  • Compatibility for the latest releases of iOS, iTunes and macOS.
  • Various smaller enhancements and fixes.
  • Cosmetic changes.

copyThing 5.0.2

  • Compatibility for iOS 8.4
  • For the older Mac OS 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) there is now a separate release available. This was necessary because of compatibility issues which made it impossible to support Mac OS 10.6.8 and iOS 8.4 in one build.

copyThing 5.0

  • Completely re-written from scratch (better and faster in every respect).
  • New clean user interface with one-click transfers.
  • Device source list with bubbles, making it super-easy to see which device content is missing from iTunes.
  • Transfer Wizard – automatically copies missing content by media kind, playlists, or just every missing item.
  • One-click playlist transfer – creates selected playlist(s) (if missing) and smart copies all missing items from here as required.
  • One-click media file or playlist entry transfer – copies selected items within categories or playlists (again, only if missing in iTunes).
  • Enhanced duplicate prevention. Existing matching media files in iTunes are used to recreate device playlists in iTunes.
  • Live search the whole device library, or within media categories, or within playlists.
  • Threaded copying: at any time, select more content to transfer while a transfer is already in progress.
  • Optionally, playlists can be copied with the addition of a name-prefix, e.g. “Claire’s iPhone: 999 Love Songs”, to separate copied device playlists from existing playlists in iTunes.
  • Folder Copy: copies media items from the device to a Finder folder on your Mac, sorted in subfolders. This mode does not require iTunes.
  • Support for OS X Fullscreen mode and Notification Center.
  • Direct iOS device support (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch). No jailbreak required.
  • Direct iPod device support (classic, nano, mini, shuffle, etc), regardless of disk mode settings.
  • Integrates with iTunes, regardless of iTunes’ media preferences.
  • Prevents with one click unwanted iTunes device-syncing (which may delete restorable content on your device).
  • New clean app icon.
  • If you own a license for iPod.iTunes 1.x, 2.x, 3.x, 4.x, you are eligible to upgrade to copyThing 5 for an upgrade fee.
