Aiseesoft iPad Converter Suite combines both a video converter and a DVD ripper. They are designed to help you convert your video files and movies or TV DVD discs so that you can play them on your iPad. As you may know, Apple devices don't have the best format support. In fact, they are limited to a handful of video and audio formats. That's why you often need a video converter or a DVD ripper that supports either H.264, MPEG-4 or MOV. And this one supports all of them. It can also be used to transfer data from and to your iPad, which is a feature that I don't find a lot in this type of apps. Most of the "suites" that I tried from other developers only include a video converter and a ripper.
Aiseesoft also offers an app optimized for the iPad 2. If you have bought that one, you don't need this one, and the other way around. The files that you convert for the iPad 1 will play just fine on all the other models of iPad, and even on other Apple devices.
There are three different versions of this app: Standard, Platinum and Ultimate. The Standard version lets you convert videos, rip DVDs, and even transfer content to and from iOS devices. The more expensive versions include support for DVD disc making, different types of data transfer (both import and export), etc.
When you launch this suite, a window will appear that will let you access three different applications: Aiseesoft DVD to iPad Converter, Aiseesoft iPad Video Converter, and Aiseesoft iPad Transfer. Each app will open in a new window, and you can only run one at a time.
