How to Transfer Files from Computer to iPad

-- Thursday, June 04, 2015
There are many different ways for iOS users to transfer files from computer to iPad. Some of them are helpful but have some shortcomings. I will list two of them for you here:

Steps to Transfer Using iTunes: Add the media data from your PC to iTunes; connect iPad to PC via USB cable; tick "music" and sync; tick "movies" and sync and other media type; check them on iPad.
Shortcoming: Can only transfer files like music, movies, photos, and other media files. Contacts, text messages, etc. are not included. What's more, you can sync one data type at a time.

Steps to Transfer Using email: Compose a new email on your computer addressed to yourself; attach the data you want; send the email; check your inbox; tap the attachment to open the files.
Shortcomings: Many email services have a size limitation of 20-30 MB. So it is not practical if you have a lot of files to transfer.
Of course, there are other ways like using iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive, and more. They are either too complex to operate or too few transferrable data type. Are there any easy ways to transfer files from computer to iPad with ease? Of course, iPhone Transfer.
