I want to transfer folder that contains many video files from MacBook to iPad. I don't want to use iCloud. I use AirDrop. Is there any 3rd party App, or how can I easily transfer and see the files in the folder in iPad?

  • If you can tell us what apps you've already tried (after searching the App Store) and why they didn't work for you, it will prevent us from providing unnecessary answers. See this post for how to ask for software recommendations. – fsb Jan 31 '17 at 1:44
  • I did not use any APP, I transferred a few video files individually, and found that they were in Photo and Videos. – Mithun Jan 31 '17 at 1:49
  • What file type in that folder? Try using ifunbox or 3U tools – Tito Jan 31 '17 at 6:28

    @Mithun Plex Media Server is very much a mallet solution (depending on the need) to a problem that should only require a hammer. Just.. for what ever reason, the hammers seem to be breaking. If you're willing to connect the device to a computer directly and transfer files through itunes, it isn't half bad. Way more reliable compared to the wi-fi transfer. I would still recommend VLC player. They direct you to the Apple instructions on file trasnfer here. I'm afraid that if that isn't enough, then you're just out of luck. I've yet to see a properly working wi-fi share. – Joonas Jun 4 '17 at 18:37

You can use some File Manager app. You can AirDrop the entire folder to the Mac, or vice-versa.

  • After AirDrop, I could not view the files. Which File Manager do you suggest? – Mithun Jan 31 '17 at 12:13

  • Try this one. I use it and it works just fine on my iPhone 7 (iOS 10.1) with a MacBook Pro 2016 (macOS). – l870365 Jan 31 '17 at 12:20
  • Please edit the link and maybe some details how you use the app directly into the question – nohillside Jan 31 '17 at 12:45
