Home > Add PDF to iPad Via Dropbox

Be tired of syncing PDF eBooks to your iPad regularly? I cannot agree more. Syncing eBooks to iPad via iTunes is time-consuming. You import PDFs to iPad at home for reading on the way. Then you need to put another file to iPad in the office. This is where the problem comes. Whenever you sync files to iPad via iTunes, if you do the task on different computers, the former files will be erased. What a pity! Fortunately, Cloud technology has changed the situation. Just with an account, you can share your files among different devices. In this article, we're talking about how to transfer PDF to iPad without iTunes, but with another free app, DropBox.
