The Management section allows you to easily monitor all the contents on your iPhone or iPad. By splitting each type of file into its own section, it allows you to have an overview of photos, music, books, contacts, voice memos and even installed applications.
You can select, for example, a series of photos in the camera roll and delete them or import them on your PC without going through the awkward synchronization of iTunes.

This feature uses the direct Wi-Fi connection to allow you to transfer photos, videos and other files like word, excel, pdf, etc., in just a few seconds without having to use the cable.
