A handy software which can cleanly rip and convert DVDs on Mac to be playable on an iPad. It can export iPad recognizable videos or audio files with awesome quality at a speed above average.

No in-program video enhancement tools supported. Don't support to add watermark because the lack of corresponding utility.

The Verdict
This would be a helpful software for you to rip DVDs for the enjoyment on iPad, but it won't do much beyond that. This is a less recommended Mac utility for those Mac users who not only want to convert DVDs but also slightly edit them to be more suitable for iPad playback.
