Have you ever run out of storage space on your iPhone? If you have then you know it’s a really annoying experience that will take you a while to solve. The transfer of stuff isn’t the issue here, it’s the time it takes to actually transfer it that is the annoying part. During that time you can’t really use your iPhone the way you can when it’s not connected. That’s exactly the time when you wish you had bought one of the cool connector drives that recently became a huge success.
This connector drive is dubbed i-FlashDrive and is created by a company named PhotoFast. Their idea of adding more storage space to your iPhone through a nifty miniature flash drive has become a booming success. Previously, the connector drive has only been available for people who have an iPhone with the 30-pin connectors. But recently they made it compatible with the Lightning connector as well. Unfortunately for now, the solution is an adaptor that is connected between the connector drive and your iPhone 5. But, this may not be such an inconvenience after all.
This connector drive comes in several different sizes. They have an 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and of course a 64GB connector drive available. The price ranges from $99 to $329. If you have long been cursing the inferior storage capacity of your iPhone then this might actually be your primary solution. It enables you to basically double up your iPhone’s storage space several times over. The connector drive isn’t that big either, which will allow for great mobile use as well. Just chop some files over to the connector drive and then drop it back into your pocket, and you’re ready to take on the world again.
The device has two connectors, one USB and one 30-pin connector which makes is super simple to download the stuff stored on it to your computer (or vice versa) when you eventually get back home. Just plug it in, drag it all over to your computer and you’re all set to go. Gadgets like this make Apple’s sometimes ridiculous incremental upgrades useless. This device’s success is of course based on that fact, and because of its mobility and ease of use. Great gadgets always succeed. This is one of those.
