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?

This has been one way of getting content on and off the iphone/ipad for quite some time now.

Air Sharing, Ambiance, Google Earth, Gravilux, Omnifocus (and presumably others) - all provide the exact same facility for adding or removing content.

Is it as simple as dragging something to USB Mass Storage? No. But it's really not that bad.

I don't use iTunes to manage my movie collection so I use this method to copy movies into the Air Sharing app and view them through that. VLC just uses the exact same method.
