I have tried Ubuntu to IPad moving pictures with the two directly connected without being able to see pictures on the ipad. I tried the cloud in the hope that I could copy the pictures to the cloud. This part is successful. I've got them in a pictures directory.
For the ipad, I've installed the ubuntu 1 ap and it is recognized but am unsure of how to get the sync to happen so I can see the pictures on the ipad's photo application.
