iPad Mate – DVD to iPad Software

Ever wanted to watch a DVD on your iPad without buying the movie again on iTunes? What about transferring the movies on you iPad to your computer? ImTOO’s iPad Mate software does just that and lot’s more!

ImTOO iPad Mate is an all-in-one application for Apple iPad tablet users to backup iPad movies, music and photos to PC, export media files from PC to iPad, and transfer iPad to iTunes as an iPad transfer. Moreover, the iPad Mate can convert CD/DVD, ISO images, IFO folder, videos and audios on your computer to iPad movies and music as a DVD to iPad converter and iPad video converter.

One of the main features of the software is that it allows you to rip DVD movies using your computer, coverts them to iPad format, and syncs them to you device. iPad Mate can also covert video that you have downloaded on your computer and sync them to your iPad.

The other great feature of iPad Mate is that it can be used as an alternative to iTunes. It adds a lot more features and lifts many of the limitations on iTunes. For example with iTunes you can’t always transfer the stuff on your iPad back to your computer, but with iPad Mate you can. It can even send your backed-up files into iTunes!

What’s truly great about iPad Mate though is compatibility. There’s no need to worry about what version of software you have on your iPad, because it worst with all iPad firmware. Apple just updated iTunes to version 10, but there’s no need to wait to update, because iPad Mate already works with iTunes 10. iPad Mate also works with most other Apple devices, so the same software you use for your iPad you can use for your iPhone, iPod touch, and even iPod classic.

Is ImTOO iPad Mate for Mac for you? Yes, if you need an assistant — or perhaps go-between is a better word — for your and Mac. With it, you can back-up or copy movies and music between them without iTunes. (If it would only do iWork files, as well. Sigh.) And imTOO iPad Mate can sync iPad files to iTunes. You can add your comments on your music files and rate them with a star icon. Plus, you can take snapshots of your favorite images while previewing and save them as JPG, PNG or BMP files.

imTOO iPad Mate requires Mac OS X 10.4 running on an Intel-based Mac. Multiple language interfaces are available, including English, German, French, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese and Japanese.
