MAC and PC question
#1
I am a Legacy user and would like to buy the iPad Families app. But first let me describe my setup and tell me if it will work.

I have a Win7 PC with iTunes that I use to sync my iPhone. I have a Macbook Pro with iTunes that I use to sync my iPad. Since I am developing apps for the iPad I can't have it sync to the PC, it has to stay on the Mac. My Mac can share files with my PC when necessary by manually copying files.

Can I make the syncing process work for my iPad? If so, what's the process?

The Families Sync application only runs in Windows but works fine using Parallels on Mac.

So could I use iTunes on the Mac to sync the Families file from the iPad to the Mac, then copy the file to the PC, then sync it with Legacy?
and vice-versa?

In fact you don't need to use iTunes at all if you sync using Wi-Fi, so you could just run Families Sync on the PC, which will do the conversion and copy the file to/from the iPad over Wi-Fi.

If you want to sync using USB, you can run Families Sync on the PC to do the conversion, and iTunes on the Mac to transfer to/from the iPad, copying the file manually between the PC and Mac as you suggest.
