This was so much needed! Exactly what I have been looking for more than 6 months!

Pros:

Helps prevent iTunes popping up automatically

Cons:

You need to open iTunes manually once in a while to backup the phone. Totally worth it!

After the seventieth time that a meeting screenshare transitioned into my awkward explanation for why I as a grown adult without children had purchased so many Pixar movies and Sandra Bullock rom-coms, my computer was in danger of incidental "snapping-in-half" as a result of "WHAT IN THE ACTUAL F***, ITUNES?-related rage". After a useless encounter with support, and an even less useful attempt to sort through their knowledge base, I was dangerously close to trying my tech-inept hand at terminal commands that were sure to solve the problem, probably by ensuring that my machine would never run any applications ever.

Instead, found this app and in less than 3 minutes, problem solved, peace restored, and embarrassing iTunes library forever hidden from work meetings. Creators are angels and heroes.

JAH BLESS.

Pros:

Does exactly what it says, and you don't have to mess around with terminal commands or wonky workarounds.

Cons:

None
