Last time I saw a tool which claims to replace iTunes without restrictions (or whatever). It also has some filesystem access (I believe full access to "var/mobile") to non-jailbroken devices which is pretty useful in some cases.

It seems somewhat useful to me that saving .ipa files directly from the device.

However, it's done by Chinese people and I couldn't make sure that it is safe. What are your opinions?

I didn't say it has root access. And yes, it can modify the files but not all.
