I'm an iPod touch 2G owner frustrated by the incredible weaknesses and inadequacies of the app-management features in iTunes. So I wrote something better and I've decided to make it available to everyone. iApps Helper is a Windows application that greatly assists you in organizing and managing on your PC the applications (I call them iApps) that you’ve downloaded from the iTunes app store for your iPhone or iPod touch (iPot for short). See http://www.iAppsHelper.com! First and foremost, it’s a much better way to decide which iApps gets sent to the iPhone/iPot and which don’t. Unlike iTunes, where you can only check or uncheck iApps and cannot see more information or even how many are checked, iApps Helper gives you a resizable table with resizable and sortable columns showing all sorts of useful information about your iApps. Here are just a few of its key features: Each iApp has a checkbox for you to say whether or not it gets sync’d to the iPhone/iPot next time you sync with iTunes. Each iApp has columns for filename, version, size, date, and several fields that you can fill in – which it will remember permanently. The user-fillable fields include the iApp’s Display Name (the name you see in iTunes or on the handheld, which is often different from the filename), a rating that you can assign, a description, and the price you paid for the iApp. I have pre-filled the database with the Display Names of over 600 commonly-used iApps. You’ll always know exactly how many iApps you’ve chosen to download. (Some of us actually exceed the handheld’s maximum of 148 iApps shown!) iApps Helper is a lot faster than iTunes at listing your iApps. Plus, you can use the keyboard to select/deselect checkboxes, unlike in iTunes. And another speed bonus: every iApp you uncheck is one less iApp that iTunes must open and scan (because the iApps are moved to a separate folder, still tracked by iApps Helper but not by iTunes, when unchecked) – so iTunes launches faster too! There are other nice features to discover and enjoy. I plan to improve iApps Helper, too. I will listen to all bug reports and suggestions. If the feature makes managing your iApps easier, I want to implement it! For example, I expect to optionally show each iApp’s icon in a release coming soon, and I hope to create a Macintosh version before too long. iApps Helper has no viruses or other malware. It does show relevant ads in a small area at the bottom of its window, in order to defray development costs. If this is objectionable to many users, I will consider other means of support instead, including registration. Please come read about iApps Helper at http://www.iAppsHelper.com! Thanks! -ardee.
