    Hey all,

    Is there a standalone app out there which will allow me to manually manage what I sync to my iPad/iPhone? Reason I ask is that I've recently moved to New Zealand for a couple of years, and I didn't bring my external USB drive with me which was where my iTunes library/music/videos were stored back home. I didn't really need it as I stream all my music and will download any TV shows/movies over here and sync them to my devices as and when I want to.

    Therein lies my question, is there an app out there where I can basically drag and drop my files onto each device manually? Or is the best option to create a new iTunes library and do it via that?

    EDIT: I'm using a Macbook Air, by the way.

    Cheers in advance,
    Lee

    This is a great app. Sadly its not free if you want all features but I invested in it a couple weeks ago and its awesome. I dont use iTunes anymore.
