iPhone Backup Extractor a useful new tool for iPhone users and developers

When you back up your iPhone or iPod Touch, iTunes can use the backup to do a restore, but not much else really.

This is especially important for developers, who can fix bugs a lot more easily if they can look at a user’s backup to figure out what’s causing problems with an app. iPhone Backup Extractor is a tool that makes this possible.

The app is available for download at: and it’s totally free.
