Best iPad Converter for iPad users to convert any video format to iPad

Is iPad still the dominant tablet on the market? The answer is, absolutely, yes. During the second quarter of 2011, around 75% of tablets shipped worldwide were iPads and 20% were Android, according to ABI research. Although there is much room for the expansion of the tablets market, it is still hard to change the current situation in which Apple is the leader of this industry, with iPad continuing to gain popularity among tablet customers.  However, iPad itself has disadvantages and limitations. For instance, it does not support flash videos and most of the video formats such as MPG, MPEG, MPEG 2, RMVB, AVI etc. Thus, Aiseesoft has created the Best iPad Converter for iPad users to convert any video format to iPad compatible formats.
