Recently I got myself a 16GB iPad (Non-3G version) to fulfill my high internet and multimedia usage. The device has been downright impressive, but the only problem for me until now has been to find a good video converter software.
iTunes does what it is intended to do, but can only supports a limited number of video formats. This basically ruled out transferring videos to iPad, whose format iTunes did not support.
While searching for a good video converter, I bumped across ImTOO iPad Mate. The software does everything I was looking for, plus offers some extra novelties as well. The video converter of the software works as it is supposed to do. It supports all the major video formats right out of the box. ImTOO iPad Mate not only supports iPad, but also iPhone and iPod Touch, and the various other generations of the iPod).
Users can connect and manage two or more iPad/iTouch devices simultaneously via the ImTOO iPad Mate. The software can also rip videos from a DVD and convert and transfer them to your iPad/iTouch. The software also allows users to convert ISO files to iPad-supported format.
The time taken to convert videos will significantly vary depending on your system’s configuration, the settings you convert the movies, and ultimately the size of the movie itself. I managed to convert a 1.98GB Mkv format video file to iPad format (1280*720) in just under an hour on my 3.4GHz Core 2 Duo PC.
ImTOO iPad Mate also allows users to delete specific songs, pictures and videos from their iPad and other iDevices. Along with this, users can also transfer videos, pictures and music from their iPad/iTouch to their PC. This feature of the ImTOO iPad Mate makes your a iPad a media library backup device. The software also allows users to modify ID3 information of the songs already present on your iPad/iTouch.
The only problem, which I faced with the software, was that it required a proper working internet connection while transferring files to iPad, and few other selected iTouch devices. It remains a mystery to me why the software needs a proper working internet connectivity for transferring files to my iPad.
You can learn more about the features and supported videos and more at the ImToo site.
Techie Buzz Verdict
The ImTOO iPad Mate is a must have software for every iPad owner. Heck, every iTouch owner should own it. The software combines the features of multiple software into one and offers them in a nice slick package.
ImTOO iPad mate is available for both Windows and Mac OS X. At 59.95$, the price of the software is a bit on the steep side though but it worth what you will spend. You can also download a free version of the software and use it before you purchase the software.
