Because when people are comparing platforms, it''s ridiculous that you can''t just use your device as a drive and drag and drop files. There are a lot of good things about apple products, but this is just ridiculous.

Who cares about whether a different operating system is easier to use or not. this article details methods of working with iOS content. Not android content. if you want to flame apple, go hang out on engadget.

how do you copy a video on your ipad with a imac
TriedItBeforeComplaining
Works flawlessly. The last two posters didn't take the time to actually read anything about the product, or use it or they would understand it works device to device directly (no iTunes), or to backup content back to iTunes (or your computer, or another device). Good product!
