Hi Chris,

Is using good reader still the recommended way to view the video journals on an iPad ?

I think there are now many ways to watch videos on the iPad. The trick with the Mac-centric iOS is to get them onto the iPad in the first place.

Apple's accepted way is by using iTunes for synching and file transfer. So you download to a laptop or Desktop and then make the file transfers.

IMO iTunes is a PIA. There is no way to directly download the zip files to the iPad, decompress them and then watch them other than with GoodReader that I am aware of. I'd be interested in others' experience.

Argh, right, thought that was still the case. My MacBook Pro only has osx 10.5.8 on it and needs 10.6.x to run iTunes 7 which is then needed to sync with an ios6 device like my iPad, geez, what a carry on, ordered a 10.6 upgrade disk from apple uk but may take 3 weeks for delivery.

You don't need iTunes - there are plenty of third party apps - try this one, just mount your iPad and move the files over http://www.macroplant.com/iexplorer/

Hi,

thanks for that link, certainly seems like quite a comprehensive and flexible application but, at a price. I have the upgrade disk on order now which was only 14 or so and will see how that goes.
