    The reason lead to my decision to buy this software is that it allows me to selectively select the lost items to recover, which the stupid iTunes does not, and it even lets me preview and edit the notes items before I actually hit the recover button. Nice app and nice job. Guys, this is a must-have thing you got have.

    Just bought an iPhone 6s last week, and it happened yesterday that I unintentionally removed a WhatsApp attacment, and to my surprise, when I try to use it to get it back, it just did it. I seems that I’ve made a correct decision in buying this software. Thanks again, guys out there!

    I didn’t give this software a second look until one day I unintentionaly deleted a message from my iPhone 5s. When I did need a tool to get that message back, I recalled this one, and decided to give it a try, and the result was very happy, it successfully got me the message. So basically, it works as decribed.

    This app works as simple as a pie to get back what you have lost quickly. Althrough some times it will give you duplicates of a same item, like a contact, which is a common issue also seen on other similar competitors I have gave shots. In general, you get what you paid for. Money well spent.
