Do you regularly need to sync PDF eBooks to your iPad? If you try to do this using iTunes, it can be time-consuming. Plus, iTunes is more geared towards sharing music and not PDFs. In this article, we'll discuss how to transfer PDFs to iPad without iTunes. Instead, you can use DropBox, a free and easy to use program. Plus, we'll cover how to manage PDF files on your iPad after you transfer them.
DropBox is a free service that lets you share photos, documents, or videos anywhere at any time, even without access to the internet. The following steps outline how to transfer PDF to iPad via DropBox.
Install Dropbox on your computer. When you first install DropBox, you'll need to create an account. When the registration pop-up appears during installation, fill in a user name, email, and password. You may see two folders: Photos and Public. Drag and drop PDF files into the Public folder. Then install it on your iPad. Since you've already created an account, you won't need to do any setup again. Simply log in with your account details.
Open the Public folder to view all the PDF files you added to DropBox via your computer. Click on a PDF file to view it.
After transferring PDF files to your iPad or iPhone, you'll probably be managing these PDF files on the go. To edit text, add a comment, or convert PDFs to other formats, we recommend using PDFelement for iOS, a professional and free PDF editing tool that lets you perform almost any task with your PDF documents.
To edit the text in your PDF, tap on the second icon at the top of the screen to enable editing mode. Then you'll be able to edit the text within your PDF.
Tap on the third icon at the top of the screen to enter page management. You can delete, rotate, extract and move pages as you'd like. Just follow the instructions it prompts.
Tap on the first icon at the top of the screen. You will see a floating toolbar. A wide selection of annotation tools will be accessible, such as highlighter, underline, strikethrough, pencil, text box, and more.
