I have a movie on my android external sd card. I would like to transfer it to play on my ipad. What is the simplest way to do this?

I have a very slow internet connection but both computers are on the same wireless LAN, if that helps.

I think this can help

enter image description here

  • Download Shareit app on both the devices.
  • Click the send button on your android device and receive button on the iPad.
  • Select the file you want to send and it creates an hotspot and click the receiver's name

Usually, this sends the files with blazing speed if it's a movie so it should be completed in 1 or 2 minutes. Hope this helps.

  • Does it require an internet connection to work? Also on the ipad side, which app will it then be available to? Just the built-in movie viewer?

  • You just need an internet connection to download these apps May 26, 2016 at 18:01
  • Sounds great. But once the file is transferred, the ipad sandboxes everything so would you be able to play the movie from a 3rd party movie player for example? For example, goodplayer.
