Moving a Voice file off of an iPhone without iTunes
« on: April 08, 2016, 03:08:02 PM »
I hate iTunes.  I don't want to install iTunes.  Ever.  I have an iPhone that I use for work and I've recorded a file that I would like to move to my PC.  Apparently Apple hates me as much as I hate iTunes because there doesn't appear to be a way to do this. 

Any ideas outside of jail-breaking the phone?  (It's not mine.)

Trace to the rescue again.   :064:  I was able to load the Drop Box app on the iPhone and transfer to that.  What a headache!!

Thank you, Trace.   :009:

Thank you, Trace.   :009:

What can I say; I'm a sucker for a cute damsel in distress.   :011:

Glad it worked, but I'm fairly sure I only beat you there by mere minutes.    :008:

That really was a sleeper fix.  I don't use Dropbox because I have my own FTP, but I knew Stacey used it.  This issue she was facing is huge and has apparently been a bug in iOS since at least 2011.  Many people claim they can't even move voice memos via iTunes.

If you every want something similar to Dropbox, but would like to maintain control of your own server, take a look at https://owncloud.org/.

Thanks, Larry!  I'll look into that for one of my clients.  :054:
