Senuti, the popular file transfer utility for iOS device owners, is now available at version 1.2.8 with fixes for some known issues, as well as support for OS X 10.7 Lion.
As many iDevice owners already know, Apple has a thing about tying all your file transfers to iTunes, whether it’s an app, a song, or a video you want to get on the iPhone, or off the iPhone.
With Senuti, that restriction is gone. The app reads a hidden file on your iPod in order to get all of the information quickly and accurately.
It then allows you to grab any audio and video file and copy it to your desktop computer in no time.
You can bet this utility will never make it in the Mac App Store.
The latest version of Senuti, fixes issues recognizing some devices on OS X 10.5 (Leopard), a crash when updating from an earlier version, as well as a rare crash while copying.
Although not specifically noted by developer Whitney Young, Senuti now fully supports OS X Lion.
Based on tests carried out by our staff, we can confirm Senuti runs smoothly on OS X 10.7, and we even noticed an improvement in file transfer speeds.
“Need to recover music, playlists, or videos from your iPod or iPhone? Look no further! With Senuti, you can recreate your iTunes music library in just one click,” reads the developer’s official description.
Although Senuti is a paid solution, users can download a trial version that works for 30 days and permits the transfer of 1,000 titles back and / or forth.
Senuti doesn’t require the latest version of Mac OS X to run (it even supports Tiger and Leopard), and it doesn’t need Intel hardware either, although it will work better on newer Mac configurations.
