Tipard iPad Transfer Pro is a simple-to-use software application designed to facilitate file transfers between computers and iPad devices. It lets you copy audio, video and photo files from the PC to an iPad and vice versa in just a few steps, whether you want to update your music collection or back up files to the hard drive.

The installation procedure is a fast and easy job that does not require special attention. As far as the interface is concerned, the program is wrapped in a clean window with a neatly organized structure.

Provided that the iPad is plugged into the computer, you can explore its contents when it comes to music, videos, photos and ringtones, as well as check out the information for each file, such as name, duration, size, artist, album and genre.

It is possible to resort to a search function to locate a particular file when dealing with large amounts of data, as well as to copy the iPad tracks to the iTunes library directly. Apart from iPad, the software utility offers support for iPod and iPhone, and it is possible to convert audio tracks and video clips to other file types, such as MPEG, MOV, M4V, AAC, MP3, WAV and M4A.

The tool runs on low CPU and RAM, so it shouldn't put a strain on computer performance. It carries out transfer and conversion jobs rapidly without triggering Windows to hang, crash or pop up error messages. On the other hand, Tipard iPad Transfer Pro failed to recognize an iPhone when we plugged it into the PC. We must also take into account that the app has not been updated for a long time, so it is likely to have compatibility issues.
