Yolanda asked, “My daughter sends me cute text messages, what is the best way to save them? “ Saving message history for personal or work purposes can be very useful.

Most people will take a screen capture, which is great for a small number of text messages. To save a full texting history on iOS devices, I use a software application called TouchCopy that runs on Windows or Mac PC’s. It backs up all of your text messages, including images and videos. You can also save voicemail, music and photos to your Pc or Mac hard drive or to an external drive. You can download a free trial copy. I’m Francie Black.
