There are plenty of apps that will send photos from the iPad to the computer, but not the other way round. I have been getting teachers to use Dropbox to transfer selected photos but it is time consuming. Does anybody know of a way/app to transfer lots of photos to iPad but not using iTunes sync?
theres a Photo Transfer app.. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/photo-transfer-app/id365152940?mt=8
and probably a few others too..
also you can get a bit of apple hardware that allows you to slot in your sd card and it automatically displays the photos on the card and you can bring over the ones you want. Its about $50 tho and plugs directly into the iphone/itouch/ipad connector.
Thanks all for your suggestions, this is what I tried and what worked well starting with the best
So the free option of emailing worked the best but I think that I will also recommend using Photo sync and/or Photo transfer as well for the other choices they offer. Thanks for all your help!
