I recently got some free music source from one of my best friends on my iPad. I was thinking it would be better to make a backup of these music files on my computer, but iTunes doesn't allow me to do that. I can only backup purchased music to iTunes. And if I need to restore them, it will overwrite the content music on my iPad. Besides, I also want to sync the music from iPad to iPhone so that I can listen to the songs on both my iOS devices. First thing first, I have to figure out how to get music from iPad to computer without iTunes.

Fortunately, I searched in the Google, and it provided me with some really good software for iPhone/iPad data transfer. What I like most is EaseUS MobiMover Free, the only free iPhone/iPad transfer software in the market. Now I use it on my daily computer to sync music from iPad to PC. The best part I like about MobiMover Free is that it is easy-to-use with simple operation, and its user-friendly interface. I have used it successfully to transfer playlists from iPad to PC. Now I will show you how to get music from iPad to computer with MobiMover.

With MobiMover Free, you can select one, multiple, or all songs to sync to your computer with ease.
