Forum Question: How To I Share/sync a GarageBand File With Other iPads With GarageBand Apps?

I want to share my garage band file that I been working on my iMac (OS Lion) with other co-workers on their iPad1 so that they can edit it with their iPad garage band app.
How can I send or share my garage band file with my co-workers iPad even if their iPad are sync with other iTunes library?

    The only way I can think of is to export to iTunes as a GarageBand file. Then grab that file on your Mac and send it to those other people. They would have to then transfer it to their iPads using iTunes in the opposite direction.

    Hi Gary, Is it possible to use the iTunes account that we using in purchasing apps that sync with iPad and use it on the other iMac that we using in working in garage band to get the garageband file and sync the iPad?
    Would there be an effect on the iTunes account credentials?

      You only need on iTunes account (Apple ID) for everything Apple requires an Apple ID for: iTunes, App Stores, iBookstore, Apple Store etc.
      But I’m not sure what you are asking about. Sync GarageBand files? There’s no function to do that that requires an Apple ID for anything. If you want to transfer GarageBand files, you can do that through the iTunes Mac app, using document transfer — but that has nothing to do with an iTunes account.

    ipad GarageBand could be an astounding music education collaborative music creating app if Apple would include the ability to transfer/share GB project files between student iOS devices. Each of my students has an ipd with GB. Imagine what could happen If I could easily share a GB project file with them or they could share a work in progress with each other. Jam Session is cool, but depends on the ability to play your ideas live for the master ipad to capture. However, as far as I can see, Apple continues to view GB and transfer between devices as an individual activity.
