iOS backups are hard to read. Almost by design, it shouldn't be this difficult to view the data on a device you paid for. There are couple 3rd party solutions to this issue however they are closed source and I don't trust them with my data.

What it does

This is a command line script that determines the datatype of each file in a iOS backup and allows you to convert them to a more familiar format. It also can export your contacts and has a built in interface that shows you a breakdown of the media types in your backup

How we built it

python, sqlite3, jija2 and some fancy JavaScript.

Challenges we ran into

Parsing undocumented SQLite databases.
