Is there any setup that can do this...

I'm assuming not, but just to be sure, is there any way to transfer pictures taken with my iphone 5 to my iPad 2 (wifi only) if I'm not on wifi? Any kind of cable set up?

Thanks,
Brad

It would be nice if you could transfer data and images via BT from one apple device to another, when wifi was not available.

Camera connection kit and a USB cable. The camera connection kit will transfer the photos from your iPhone to iPad.

Camera connection kit only works to transfer pictures to an iPad from a camera.

We need something like wifi direct that is available on most Android phones.

We're in luck, the iPhone has a camera inside of it!

Well u can do it through ICloud if both of your devices are on the Internet at some point, not necessarily at the same time. If u want it NOW and insist on doing it device-to-device, oops.

You can transfer them via the iPhoto app using the "beam" function

If using on iPad with lightning connector, you'll need the 13-pin to lightning adapter for the iPad end. (I use the original Camera Kit and don't know if there's a new one made with lightning connector.)

Not true, as I have used it to transfer pix from iPhone 3Gs, 4 and 5 to iPad 1 and iPad 4. The iPhone is seen as a camera.

Have you tried the app "Mover lite or Mover +"? I read that you can transfer pics and contacts through iPhone to iPad and other iDevices.

Update: I just set it up with my Macbook Pro (Mover Connect) and iPhone 5 (Mover +) and it worked GREAT on wifi!

There are plenty of free apps which let to transfer pictures and videos through Bluetooth. UbiDisk is my favorite. Click "local files", the plus sign, then "From Photo Album" to add the photos to the app, then you can send the files individually.

If you don't mind paying, I find PhotoSync to be the best. You don't have to transfer the photos/videos to the app first, you can sync to almost any third party service, it keeps track of which photos are new and haven't been synced yet, and it automatically detects if it should send the files via Bluetooth or Wifi.

Both apps are highly recommended, and accomplish what you're looking for.

Have fun!

Yea I know about iCloud/ photostream, but I'm talking about if I have no Internet connection with my wifi ipad2.
Some of those apps sound great, I'll look them up.
Thanks a lot for the suggestions, guys.

IMHO the best photo transfer app is PhotoSync.

Does anyone know if these apps allow for high resolution transfer? Or is it low res?
