  3. In the bottom right corner of the box to the right of the apps select “Add”.
  4. Locate the the folders that was created from unzipping the downloaded file. Open the folders and select the file(s) inside this folder, select “open” to load files into iTunes. iTunes should then automatically sync all the files to the iPad.
