    Hi everyone I've just bought an I Pad 2 3G and am loving it.
    But can anyone recommend the best way to transfere documents onto it?
    Thanks

    I use Dropbox, you can get an app for your iPad and your Mac/PC, you then just drop a document into it and as if by magic, it appears everywhere else that you have a Dropbox app, you can also use it to share documents with others.

    GoodReader is another good app that can transfer documents to and from the iPad over WiFi. It's the iPad's 'Swiss Army Knife' and has a whole load of other uses to, so it might be worth checking it out in the App Store.
