    Are there simple applications that exist to send media from one mobile Apple device to another without much fuss or a desktop?

    I would prefer a way that doesn't require a common WiFi connection.

    I've done searches, and I get so many results it's hard to find a simple and concise answer to my specific question.

    I fully understand plenty of people will give me trouble for this thread, but the answer to my question is one of the major factors in whether or not I purchase an iPad.

    (Also, assume the iPad is 3G + WiFi. :) )

    Thank you guys so much! :D

    I almost mentioned you in my post because I figured you would show up with your sarcasm. ;)

    I meant without a computer. I apologize that it was not clear. I'll edit the post.

    iTunes and MobileMe are not just a waste of time, but the latter one is expensive too. At least, for what it is.

    Try the App store! I would recommend a few apps, you will find them in the store, but I would also recommend DiskAid. It's not free, but have a go at the trial and see, whether you like it or not.

    Evernote is also an option, or Picasa and Flickr. These are even free.

    I didn't really want to pay for a MobileMe subscription.

    My goal is to be able to take a video or picture on my iPhone and within a few moments be able to send it to my iPad. I understand that email is somewhat useful for this, but I was wondering if there was a better way then emailing myself the attachment.

    I would be willing to pay a few bucks for an app. I love taking pictures with my iPhone and then redrawing them in apps like Brushes. I'm no artist, but it's a minor vice for me to be creative and make some really nice images.

    The ipad camera connection kit and an eyefi card?

    You could try these apps though I imagine better ones will come along.

    Camera-A for your iPad and…

    Camera-B for your iPhone.

    Send an MMS.

    …oh wait, you guys in America don't have MMS. Hmm… What about those apps that can transfer photos between iPhones? It might work for the iPad+iPhone too.

    How about a bump photo app?

    Your out with a group and take a cute photo, everyone bumps phones and they have their own copy.

    Outside of America, how exactly will you address a MMS to an iPad? ;)

    Americans have had MMS for quite awhile now. Since September of last year I believe.

    I checked out Evernote, and the feature I want is "premium" and requires a subscription.

    It looks like DropBox is exactly what I'm after.

    I have to admit, I was thinking of a something like Bump for media. I wonder how hard that would be to create... I'm no developer, but I am intrigued and would love to look in to it.

    The Bump app works for photos, but you have to be in proximity to each other.

    I just noticed there's an app for that seem similar to Dropbox. It has a 20GB limit for the free account.:eek: Does anyone know anything about it? This really may be a good option for me to keep my photos and files.

    We have had MMS in the states for a long time now. Use an iPad. Oh wait.... You won't have one for a good while...

    Mover+ is perfect! Exactly what I had envisioned in my head. Now that ithink about it I think I saw the commercial featuring this app a while ago.

    Thank you so much! Now I just have to hope for full iPad integration.

    For transferring photos you could use 'Photo Transfer App'. I'm the developer of this universal application (iPhone/iPad) that let's you transfer pictures from your iPhone or computer directly to another iPhone or iPad.

    The app is currently in the Top 25 iPad apps in the photography category.

    Here are couple of videos that show how the app works:

    I hope you find it useful.
