Apple As I was casually browsing around today, I came across this blog post. It's about the recently released VLC media player for the iPad, which you can use to play just about any video under the sun on your iPad. The blog post is a complaint about a bit of help text that's not properly rendered inside the application - annoying, but no dealbreaker. Until I actually read the text - this is how you're supposed to get content on your iPad?

iOS or Application

I agree using iTunes for file transfer sucks, but some of the blame has to go with the app developer.

iOS 4 has introduced shared files that any application that registers that they can open that type file can access it. Additionally, although it's not drag and drop in the finder (aka jailbreaks can enable this, so should apple), transferring files over wifi is easily done and can be done by any app.

A good example is drop box on iDevices. Files put into the shared directory, select the file, and any app that has registered to handle that file type can be used.
