There is a freeware known as Sharepod, which can help you to transfer music from iPhone to PC. This freeware has been designed especially for music and videos on your iPhone. You can download this freeware from the link at the bottom of the end of article. Once you install it, it will detect the device connected with your laptop and automatically list out the details of all the music files and videos available on your iPhone and you will have some options as mentioned above.


With the first option you transfer select files available in the window to your computer.

I tried to search for many application but most of them were paid and yes obviously much better than this in terms of UI and functionalities. Tools like iExplorer3 can do the same for all the available files on your iPhone like, taking out the downloaded browsing history or backup files or other media. You might take help with the demo version also but then it will ping you all the time to convert it into the full version. This freeware is a good and neat application for transferring the application from laptop to iPhone.
