A quick and simple way to transfer photos and video clips from an iPad or iPhone to a computer, using Wi-Fi. Launch the app, select photos and videos, then open up a web browser on your computer. Just browse and download items individually, or as a zip file of everything.
On a recent holiday I shot a large number of video clips on an iPhone. Back at my room, with my laptop and iPhone on the same Wi-Fi connection, I was able to transfer the day's videos to a MacBook Air, then import the video clips into iMovie.
If there's no Wi-Fi available, create an ad-hoc Wi-Fi network from your computer, join your iPhone or iPad to this network, then transfer photos and videos as above.
Photo Transfer App can also be used to upload photos and videos.
