mediAvatar iPad Software Suite 5.4

It combines a video converter, a DVD ripper and an iOS transfer app.

mediAvatar iPad Software Suite combines a video converter, a DVD ripper and an iOS transfer app in a single package. These tools let you completely manage your Apple devices without the need to buy separate apps. Basically, you can convert pretty much any video file to watch it on your iPad or rip an entire DVD movie, and, after that is done, you don't even have to get out of the application to get the newly converted file into your iPad. You can also backup your device back to your Mac or put new songs, books and even photos on it.

The graphical user interface is very similar to that of many other applications by other developers. You will find a list of the types of data that you can transfer on the left pane and below the buttons that take you to the video converter and DVD ripper. All the way at the bottom of the window there is a video player that lets you preview your videos and songs before transferring them. When you first connect your iPad, you will see a device summary. It contains some basic information about the device, along with how much free space there is and what types of files are taking up your space on it.

I tested the application by connecting both an iPad 2 and an iPhone 4 to my Mac and launching this app. It detected both devices without any problems and all the features worked just fine. I tested the transfer feature by copying music from the device to my Mac and the video converter by converting an MKV file into H.264, using the iPad 2 conversion profile. Everything worked smoothly.
