Question

iTunes is a mess

by Ingridmari / November 17, 2012 3:05 AM PST

It's very frustrating using iTunes when you want for instance to import a pdf-file from your computor to iBooks on an iPad. You have always to use the same computer to syncronize with. This doesn't make sense! Why can't Apple provide a solution similar to Microsoft's where it is very easy to move documents between different media.

There's a cloud solution as well. Do we need to discuss (again) how iTunes and the Apple ecosystem works?

And how do you feel Windows 8 RT is any better? I agree the RT stands for Restricted Tablet. I'm not buying it.

Moving files from Computer to iPad

I can understand syncronizing may be necessary for music and things you have to buy, but concerning your own documents, why must I take the way via iTunes, why not fix so I can just drag it over?
