Installing Dropbox on the iPad
Dropbox iPad App

If you aren't interested in installing Dropbox on your PC, you can also register for an account through the app.

Now it is time to get Dropbox setup on your iPad. Once setup, Dropbox will allow you to save files to the Dropbox servers and transfer files from one device to another. You can event transfer files to your PC, which is a great way of uploading photos without going through the hassle of connecting your iPad to your PC.

First, you will need to download the Dropbox app. It is a free download from the App Store.

Next, you will want to log in to Dropbox using the same email and password you used registering with the website. This will link your iPad to Dropbox and you shouldn't need to login again.

After logging in, you will be asked if you want to automatically upload all of your photos and videos to Dropbox. You can also turn this on later, so if you are unsure, go ahead and decline. You can turn the feature on and off through the settings button at the bottom of the Dropbox application.

Now that you have Dropbox setup on your iPad and your PC, you can simply drag and drop files into your PC's Dropbox folder to access them from your iPad.
