    This is a Mac app that keeps getting mentioned in various searches:

    Android.com

    Never used it though Ivy. To get them on to your iPad from your Mac, you will probably first have to import them into iTunes, and from there just drag them across to your iPad when it's shown as connected (either via usb or wireless)

    Didn't work, It kept asking me to connect to my Mac even though it was already connected, I want to transfer my stuff before i go back to iPhone when the next new one is released later this year.

    mmm....don't really know what to suggest. This app is the one suggested by Google....it may even be from Google.

    Yes definitely going back to iPhone, Got Android out of my system, far too flaky, I'll keep trying that though Jez, maybe i'm missing something.

    Ok, I found this and all went well until i got to 9, there is no window on the left named "computer" with my device in it :(


    The first way,First of all, plug your phone into your computer using a USB cable.
    1. Open your documents
    2. Open your music library
    3. Under 'My Music' go to your iTunes folder
    4. Open the folder iTunes media
    5. Open the folder music
    6. In here, you will see folders of the artists from your iTunes library. Click on the desired one. Transfer Music from Android to iTunes
    7. This will bring you to folders of the albums written by the artist you chose in step 5, click the one you want. Transfer Music from Android to iTunes
    8. Here will be a list of songs with icons that look like white pieces of paper with a blue music note on them.
    9. From here, you'll have to look to the left side of the window under 'computer'. This will be a list of hard drives and other devices in/connected to your computer. One should be the name of your phone or something noticeably similar.
    10. Pick the desired song and drag it over the hard drive of your phone listed in step 9. From here the song will automatically sinc to your phone's music library.Transfer Music from Android to iTunes
