How do you transfer files from an iPad to your work desktop without using iTunes?
pcaulfield 2 years ago
I want to start using my iPad more for actual work, not just watching what the cats are doing on YouTube. One thing that I've found awkward is something that I would have though would be a very simple thing - transferring files from my iPad to my desktop. The easiest way would be to use iTunes and transfer the file from there, but iTunes installation is not allowed on our network. The way I've started doing it is by email, basically going to Gmail and sending myself a message with the file I want attached, then going into Gmail from my desktop, checking my messages, opening the one from myself, and downloading the file. That works, but it is clunky and I feel like I'm going through unnecessary steps to do a presumably simple thing. Are there other ways out there that I'm missing?
