How to transfer files from mac to ipad without using itunes

how to transfer files from mac to ipad without using itunes ???
as i want to use my ipad for official use as well...please suggest..

well to be 100% technical, no you didn't but that aside, it good to know there are ways for people to transfer music into the default apps without iTunes, if they have a need.
I tend to use 3rd party apps for documents, like your mentioned iExplorer etc, which are handy.
I see from a search the two "apps" you mentioned are not iOS apps, which I had assumed, SyncPod and FreeSync are apps for your computer, that would explain their access to the default Music/Video apps.
I had wondered how Apple had allowed iOS apps in the store that could get around the sandboxing in iOS of apps.

  • Is there a way to transfer music from PC to IPad without using ITunes

    can I transfer music I already have on my PC windows 7 to my IPad without using Itunes on the PC? I cannot get it to download on my PC.

    Only if you are in a country where you can re-download your iTunes purchases on your iPad's iTunes, and if you've signed up for iTunes Match for the CDs that you've copied - otherwise you will need to go via iTunes on your computer.
    If you are having problems downloading iTunes on your computer then you could try posting in the iTunes for Windows forum and see if anybody there can help.

  • How to transfer files from iMac to iPad 2

    What's the best way to transfer files from iMac to iPad, like a Keynote presentation?

    It's probably not as "simple" as using DropBox, but it's there. When in the Apps section of iTunes, just scroll down to the bottom where there is a listing of installed apps that can use the iTunes data exchange. Documents available on the computer can be synced TO the device while those available on the device can be syned TO the computer.

  • I have an ipad and forgot the password. I tried to many times and it disabled on me. How do I get back into my ipad without using iTunes and without losing all my saved items.

    I have an ipad 2 WiFi. I was in the hospital having surgery and forgot my password. I tried several times but couldn't get it. I ended up disabling my ipad. There are important pics n notes in there that I need. How can I get back into it without using iTunes (because I bought it second hand, off ebay) and without losing all my saved items. Please help me!

    If it's disabled then it's too late to copy any content off it or to take a new backup, you will have to reset it back to factory defaults by connecting it to a computer's iTunes : Forgot passcode for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, or your device is disabled - Apple Support
    Have you been backing up to the cloud ? If you have then after resetting it back to factory defaults you can restore to that backup : Back up and restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using iCloud or iTunes - Apple Support
    If you bought it second hand then had the previous user removed their account from Settings > iCloud (and had Find My iPad enabled) on it ? If not and the iPad is on iOS 7+ then you will have to contact the previous owner to reactivate the iPad after resetting it : Find My iPhone Activation Lock: Removing a device from a previous owner’s account - Apple Support

  • Transfer files from pc to ipad without internet/WLAN without erasing everything

    we have the following problem. Our  Ipad is synchronized using Itunes with a Macbook. From time to time we need to transfer a few PDF files from a PC to the Ipad. We can only use a cable here, since WLAN isn't available and files cannot be transferred through the internet.
    When I tried to attach the Ipad to the PC it wanted to delete everything on it and sync with the Itunes Library on the PC.
    Is there a way to transfer the files without deleting everything?
    I called support but that didn't really help me.
    Thanks in advance for your input.

    In your case, the key is to keep your iTunes organized in the way you can perform the sync without losing data. Obviously the most efficient way would be using the internet to add isolated files. If your workplace has only wired connection, a very basic and cheap solution can be adding a USB Wireless Adapter that costs around 30 bucks. With this adapter you can create an ad-hoc network between one PC and the iPad and then get internet on it.
    Another way is to use a laptop that have Ethernet adaptorand Wireless adaptor. In the same way, you can create an ad-hoc network and share your wired internet connection through the wi-fi to the iPad. You can even use your smartphone to share the internet connection. This kind of connection from smartphones are called tethering connection. The iPhone is ready to tether by USB...not sure if can tether via wifi. It should do...On the Android phones 100% sure that works. Thats what I do when I'm on pyblic transport and want to use internet on my iPad to watch some videos on the go.
    With the internet connection on the iPad,you can use Dropbox to put Documents into the iPad or even use iCloud to doit.
    There's many ways to do it...just choose which way you want to use.
    I hope it helps.

  • Stream audio from Mac to airport without using iTunes?

    I want to know if I can stream my audio output to an airport express that's connected to my speakers without necessarily using iTunes. As an example, when watching a movie on Netflix on my MacBook Pro. The movie playback is through Safari, not iTunes so is there a way to send that audio to the airport express?
    Another question: Would the new Apple TV do that too (of course not with Mac Netflix playback since it has Netflix support within it) with, for example, Sirius Media player running on my MacBook Pro?

    Wow! That was quick and so effective!! Thank you!
    I had never heard of that application. So now my question would be, can I do this with the new Apple TV instead of airport express??

    While I do have an NAS unit, the iPad is not hooked into it, and Ihave no interest in getting an iCloud account.

    How to transfer pdf file from mac to ipad without using the internet and with the help of the cable?

    You say without using the internet, then the only way left is to use a USB connection to itunes on your computer.
    If you have a pdf reader app on the ipad (you must if you hope to read pdf files on the ipad), then go into the Apps tab in iTunes (for your device)  and find the pdf reader app in the list.  If there, then drag a pdf file from the mac to the panel in iTunes and then sync.  Once on the ipad, you should be able to open the pdf reader app and access the pdf file.
