    Moving app data from one iPad to another

    My daughter is crazy for Tiny Zoo and Tap Zoo. She has large zoos in both apps, but they are on my wife's iPad. I purchased another iPad2 for the kids to share. Downloading the apps onto the new iPad has not been a problem, but how do I transfer the zoo data so that my daughter doesn't have to start over and my wife no longer has to share her iPad?

    I have checked a number of forums and one suggested DiskAid. I used DiskAid to successfully do a test transfer of Tap Zoo data from my iPad to the "Family" iPad. However, since then I have been unable to replicate this transfer.

    I welcome any other suggestions so that my wife and kids will leave me alone!

    Just a quick amendment:
    I have been able to move "Tap Zoo" data again using DiskAid, but have not been able to move "Tiny Zoo" data at all.

    Thanks,

    In preferences, under advanced there is an option to display all apps even if they dont have their file sharing enabled, make sure to tick this. also there's an option to show hidden folders, tick that and you should be able to back up the data.

    Also you may want to try to tick show root path for apps (although you may not be able to use this)

    Edit: added more info

    If you get iPhone explorer you should be able to plug in your iPad and copy all 'documents' folders that way you can save your games. If you can't power up the iPad then your out of luck.

    Thanks so much

    This may not back up game saves so I'd copy the documents folders just in case...
