Xilisoft iPad Magic Platinum is an iPad management tool. It can be used to back up and restore your iPad. You can download all your music, movies, and books from the iPad and put them on your computer, and you can also put music and movies on the device, without using iTunes. Although this is designed to be an all-in-one iTunes replacement tool, it still requires that iTunes be installed on your system. Other than letting you manage the content on your iPad, this app can also convert videos, rip DVDs and download videos from YouTube.com
The main window shows the devices that are connected to your Mac. At the bottom-left corner, you will see the buttons that take you to the video converter, video downloader and DVD ripper. I tested this app with an iPhone and an iPad and both were detected just fine. The video downloader supports YouTube, Metacafe, Dailymotion, Revver, Vidilife, Break, Vimeo, Stickam and Blip.TV. The video converter has good input format support, but it can only convert files to H.264 and MPEG-4. It comes with conversion profiles for every Apple device.
In short, at $69.95, this app might seem expensive. But if you think about it, it comes with a video downloader, video converter, DVD ripper and iPad management tool, and a ringtone maker. Each of these apps generally retails for $30.
