How do I copy maps to my IPad, when ITunes only shows mind map as an app and not capable of accepting files as down loads from my pc.

Hi Andy. Have you tried to utilize Mindjet Connect or Dropbox as Cloud storage devices? You will be able to save your maps in one of these spaces and access them on your iPad. I hope this helps!

Hi Brittney
Will try these options.
Would have liked it to be as simple as some of the MS office reader/editor apps I have on my IPad where they see the files on my PC but I will give it a try.

Many thanks for getting back to me.

Hi Britteny
Looking at the solution you suggest, I don't think they will supply the answer to my problem.
I really need to have the capability to load my maps on to my IPad and use them there, my reason is I want to use them in specific client environments and I am unable to have access to the cloud while on-site (security issues).
I have had a number of alternative mind map solution suggested to me but I am reluctant to go down that route.

Andy, with Dropbox the files are replicated on all linked devices when they go online. When your iPad is offlline all files present in the Dropbox folder and subfolders will be accessible. Those that you update and add offline will be replicated on all the other devices when you are next online.

If my iPad is beside my Mac, it is OTT for my files to make a round-trip to a third-party service (i.e. DropBox) while local sync mechanisms are possible (wi-fi/bluetooth sync or iTunes file sharing) and have been adopted by many apps. Local sync is very useful for corporate computing environments where access to external cloud services are verboten.
