Well I'm quite new to this product but since I'm using Linux which doesn't support iTunes and actually I'm not much interested in buying anything from there I was looking for alternative . I'm using FileExplorer which connect to my PC over wifi and allow to transfer files in both directions without iTunes. Practically what I do is I download movie to PC and then from inside FileExplorer I watch it. Or I download it using FileExplorer locally on iPad and watch from ther. I found it ver convinient.

i also use linux.. opensuse.. can you tell me about file explorer and how to set it up?

In the interest of keeping the Tips and Tricks thread ongoing I have moved your post and given you your own thread for your question, which is what I asked members to do in the post directly before yours. Hijacking a thread which is what you have done derails a thread and makes it confusing for members to follow the conversation and is against Forum Rules.

In future do a search first on your issue, if there isn't one to be found then please start your own thread on your issue.
