For iPhone, iPod, and iPad users, iTunes is the first tool that they use to manage music, videos, Podcasts, Audiobooks, and purchases from Apple App Store, etc. It does a good job in managing these files. However, taking copyright issues into consideration, Apple doesn't let iTunes transfer files from iDevices (iPhone/iPod/iPad) to iTunes. If you lose iTunes Library on your computer, you're facing the risk of losing all songs, playlists, and videos forever. In this case, you need an iTunes companion to fix this problem.
Wondershare TunesGo Retro is one of the best iTunes companions I've tried. It makes up what iTunes lacks –transferring music, videos, photos, etc. from iPhone/iPad/iPod to computer or iTunes. By doing this, you can recover iTunes Library directly from iPhone or complete your iTunes Library with files that once only exist on your device.
