Share This

At some point or another, we all have felt the need of transferring a bundle of PDF files to our devices but have failed to do so. Transferring a few files is easy as they can be downloaded from the internet or can be sent on our email address from PCs and then downloaded on our devices through “Mail” application, but when it comes to transferring a bundle of files, chapters of a book for instance, or any other PDF files, it has always been a problem. A number of students prepare for their IELTS, Toefl, GRE or GMAT exam online because the entire preparation material is available online, in PDF files, but transferring those 100+ files to an iDevice by attaching the files through your PC and then downloading them on the iDevice and sorting them is nothing but a hassle.
