Install the free Harry's MultiCam app on the iPad. It is available on the AppStore

That ok, connection is done when entering the video view. Check the video docs in addition - it includes a step by step.

ok i've worked out an easier way to transfer gopro videos (if you have a pc) and without needing to use itunes - works on fully ios version (no need to jailbreak)

1. copy mp4 from gopro to your computer.
2. download i-funbox classic ( http://dl.i-funbox.com/ifunbox_classic.zip ) extract, and run.
3. make sure phone is connected.
4. Browse to user apps - harry laptimer - documents
5. Click copy from PC - browse to the gopro mp4 and will copy across.
6. Go into harrys laptimer, click on relink, and the gopro mp4 will now show with a red ! next to it, click on link and done :)

Try to use the USB cable, that's usually faster. But I agree, there is room for improvement...

Yes, that works too and is probably the fastest approach. I do not recommend it usually as one can easily screw up the Documents folder.
