Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Saving files to and from apps via iTunes, part of iPad Tips and Tricks.
- So we've now seen how to sync files like music,…movies, and TV shows to your iPad,…and when you do so they end up…in the music and video apps on your iPad.…Similarily, books end up in the iBooks app,…and podcasts end up in the podcast app.…So these are all official Apple apps,…but what if you have files that you want to use…in other third party apps on your iPad?…Well, first of all it depends on that app.…Some apps are entirely self contained and don't accept…external files and don't export any files.…But many apps, such as word processors,…audio and video editors, image editors,…comic book readers, and the like…do allow you to import content.…
