Gotta move some music from your computer to your iPad? This mobile device is quickly becoming an Apple consumer favorite, offering high quality media display and favorite computer and mobile software all in one place. It’s only natural that you’d want to have your music available on the iPad as well, and enjoy your favorites anytime, anywhere.

However, if you’re not using iTunes to store all your music, you’ll find it’s pretty hard to accomplish the task. iPad, like other iOS products, have built in transfer restrictions aimed at stopping illegal music sharing and copying. That’s why you have to register your devices to iTunes, and why you can’t simply ‘open up’ your iPad and pull out music data at will. As reasonable an aim as this is, it’s hard to overlook the fact that exclusive music and data management software for these devices also benefits Apple considerably, and often corners Apple device users into using iTunes whether or not it’s the right tool for their needs.
