Newbie Qns: Transfering files without wi-fi
I'm new to all Apple-related products, but I am really interested in the iPad. What I really want to do with the iPad is to read PDF/DOC/DOCX/PPT/PPTX documents, watch movies in the AVI format, etc.
I guess to do that, I'll need to download specific apps from the itunes store. Can anyone recommend any good apps for that? What about something like a file explorer, where I can organize all my files and folders?
Also, from what I've read online, it seems that to transfer files over from my PC to the iPad, I will need a wi-fi connection, but is there a way to do so without wi-fi? Is it not possible to transfer files over a USB connection?
Thank you very much!
