    I transfer photos through iTunes installed on my win7 laptop. iTunes has made a folder "iPod photo Cache" in "My Pictures" folder. By dragging and copying pictures I want copied to my iPad photos then syncing iPad with iTunes the photos will be place in my iPad. The same can be done with mp4 videos in "mp4" folder in "My videos" folder and what ever extension for music in "My Music" folder ( I am not a music fan). I am not sure other than PDF files which documents can be read by iPad. Some one else will have to tell you how to do it on a Mac.

    some times if you use search you can find answers to you questions.

    Many apps have file sharing through iTunes. When you plug into iTunes, click on the apps tab at the top, and scroll down. Then you will see the apps that have file sharing.

    If you want a more robust way of file management. Use goodreader.

    I transfer through Dropbox or use one of the photo transfer apps for photos. If you are transferring a large amount of photos it probably is faster to use itunes, but I like Dropbox which can be opened in Goodreader--my app for organization of just about everything on the Ipad.

    I transfer all other files through Dropbox which is integrated with many of the apps I use--its an easy drag and drop on PC and an "open with" on the Ipad or directly download in Goodreader.

    iAnnotate is my favorite in the PDF space.

    Well I have not seen a straight up comparison so far, but it would be interesting to read one.

    Anyone out there seen a head to head review?
