Transfer MP4 to iPad no iTunes required! iTunes may be tedious and cumbersome, but you can copy MP4 to iPad no questions asked excluding iTunes sync.

This article will demonstrate a shockingly quick way to transfer MP4 to iPad without iTunes sync required or any other service like AirDrop or Dropbox.

We all love Apple devices. They are compact and powerful, their design is superb. In short, they are amazing tools for multimedia playback.

Here's the scenario: you have a movie you want to watch quickly while hitting the road, all you want is to quickly drop a movie on iPad and get going. Well, this is not always as clear as it’s supposed to be.

You should agree with me – media managing isn’t Apple’s strong point.

WALTR is the very tool that makes it a child’s play to transfer MP4 files to iPad. This is a Mac/ Windows application, letting you put practically any type of video and music (+eBooks) on iPhone & iPad without interacting with iTunes or programs alike.

If you launched WALTR at least once – you know it’s design is second to none. You won’t notice any settings or buttons in WALTR.

Developers strived to make WALTR as simple as possible. For instance, to transfer MP4 to iPad, you merely need to push the desired file into WALTR. According to developers, such a simplistic approach is a must, because the simpler the application is, the more people love it.
