They are not faster, and they are not simpler. They add additional steps which are completely unnecessary for the average person.

But, to each their own.

Oh for heavens sake, I posted this to get *away* from the negativity. Just stoppit.

Fast and simple is Computer stored book --> itunes -->iPad.

Slower is computer stored book --> Calibre ---> Sugarsync/Dropbox -->ipad. Extra steps to achieve the same end. I choose to use calibre to edit metadata, get the book cover I like and so on... more additional steps. Others dont bother. I use dropbox for storing only because I might want to grab something when away from home, but TBH thats not too likely these days...

There is NO reason not to use iTunes. It works.
