    Handy way to transfer camera photos

    My DSLR camera uses an SD card and will accept up to a 128Gb card. A microSD card adapter makes the micro SD card (included with the SanDisk flash drive) easy to use in my camera. I'm then able to put my latest photos into the SanDisk flash drive, turn on the wifi, and transfer selected photos fro my camera card to my iPhone...then use email or text for sharing the photos when wifi access is not readily available (within carrier data network) ...There is no longer a need to wait until I get back to my desktop or laptop computer card readers. Now there is also no need to carry that heavy laptop on vacation anymore...or wait/rent a hotel lobby machine. I am also able to store and stream my favorite music and videos (which can be easily stored on the SD card) to my phone for those airport delays. A word to the wise, though: The 32Gb flash drive will accept larger SD cards, but they must be reformatted to FAT32 (Directions, downloads, etc are available on the SanDisk website) and only accept file sizes less than 4Gb. After purchasing this 32GB flash drive, I followed it up by purchasing the 64Gb version...which accepts a 128Gb microSD card and will allow file sizes greater than 4Gb. Both drives are handy and work well. A review of your memory card needs and compatibilities would be a good idea before purchase. The flash drive charges easily and quickly and lasts long enough to watch videos and listen to music. It can be recharged using any USB charging device including a spare battery source.

    I primarily purchased this product for streaming video while on the go. It has multiple simultaneous stream capacity (different files to different devices at the same time) and I've never experienced any buffering issues. The stated memory is actually an embedded micro SD card which can be replaced with a higher capacity one. You connect to the device via WiFi, either by using the devices assigned ip address (through your browser of choice) or the Android/iOS app. By default this disconnects you from accessing internet however, the settings menu allows you to assign a preferred pass through network so you can maintain your connection to the internet while accessing files on the drive. You also have the option to assign a password to the devices built in network, it's open by default. The menu also allows you to designate a custom auto shut off after a certain period of inactivity to save battery. The unit will still broadcast/stream while charging. Not to mention the fact it also functions as a standard usb flash drive.

    Great option to expand storage for Apple products

    I hate how Apple still sells their stuff with only 16gb. Because of this, I never store anything on the iPad anymore. The 16gb is barely enough for all the apps I use (DJ apps, productivity, some games, etc.). This thing allows me to access media and other documents without taking up any of the measly 16gb on my iPad. I haven't done any battery run-down tests but I've only had this thing for a few days and I use it sparingly; still going strong. After playing with it a little, I noticed you can remove SD card that sits in it. I'm guessing the rest of the body houses the electronics to make it wifi-accessible and the actual memory part just takes up a small slot. This leads me to believe that while I bought the 32gb version, you may be able to get a 64gb or 128gb even and replace it. I haven't tried, but when I get a chance, I may tinker with that and see if it's feasible. If I do, I'll definitely update my review. As is, this thing does what it says it does and does it well. No complaints here.

    Great way to stream content without internet

    The "cloud" is great for streaming movies and music, until your cable and internet goes out or you have a power failure. Once you load up this flash drive with movies, music, and pictures from your computer, it creates its own WiFi network that you can connect to from your iPhone, iPad, Android device, or Kindle Fire. You can then watch movies on your tablet without needing an internet connection, which is handy when you have bored kids in the car. Just remember that the movies you copy to this drive from your computer must be in a format supported by the device you want to play it on. As an added bonus, you can backup the photos on your phone to this flash drive using the SanDisk app.

    Bought to easily transfer files across devices

    Previously used a portable USB hard-drive. Most of the time this 32 GB stick can do whatever I need. I can store files via wireless connection between phone , android tablet and computer. or the stick can plug into tablet, or into computer. I can keep extra books or movies on it and move them via wifi to my tablet. Can download a file from web via 3G phone, move it to stick then move it to wifi only tablet. Portable, lasts a while (days) from charge, don't have to carry spare power supply or cables. Sandisk supports streaming from the stick but that uses more power and seemed to lag, due to speed of connection on tablet and speed to decompress codec. Easier to move to tablet first, then turn off stick.

    I use this when I travel so I have extra movies and music available for my iPad. The stick creates its own mini network and the app to play movies and music works great. This will play iTunes purchased movies as well through Safari. The only thing I couldn't get to work was the internet passthrough. You are supposed to be able to connect to the stick and a wifi network at the same time so you can access the internet and your stick files at the same time. This doesn't bother me much as I just switch over to a wifi source if I need an internet connection. All in all, this is well worth the price.

    Purchased for wireless transfer of files and photos between an iPad and a desktop computer. The flash drive worked flawlessly with the wireless connection to the iPad. A problem was encountered when trying to plug the unit into the front USB port on an older Dell 8250 desktop. The computer port was slightly recessed, and the flash drive could not be plugged in due to the size of its case. This required the purchase of a USB extension cable, which solved the problem when placed between the computer and flash drive. The 32 GB capacity of the flash drive is a great addition to the 16 GB capacity of my iPad.

    Initial attempt to connect to the wireless flash drive resulted in Android app crash! Several more attempts got the same results. I was ready to put it back in the box and return it to get a refund when I was prompted to update the FW (firmware) on the device. After the FW update everything was working perfectly! Streamed movies to 3 devices. Even streamed the same movie to multiple devices with no interruptions. This is going to work great in the car for long road trips. Everyone can access their movies from a single device! No more disks, no more wires. Awesome device, highly recommended!

    Sets up in minutes, works FLAWLESSLY in transferring pics to and from my iPhone 6+ to ANY computer or other Wi-Fi connected smart phones. Large capacity, fast data transfer, easy organization of files, long battery life, great led status indicators, and completely portable and simple to use! Alien Technology for sure... a USB thumbdrive with built-in WiFi??? INCREDIBLE and AWSOME :-) The fastest data transfer is obtained by connecting via Wi-Fi DIRECTLY to the chip using your smart phone. The USB data transfer method works BEST using PC's or USB compatible devices. Works AMAZING!!!

    I wish I knew about this gadget years ago, if it's been out that long. This drive has it's OWN wifi for you to connect your device to and watch movies from it or access files such as photos and documents. I work EMS and this comes in handy when we are sitting on post not doing anything for hours at a time. I simply connect my phone to it and start watching movies. I can even share other movies with my coworkers or anyone else in the vicinity. We connected 6 devices to it and were all watching a different movie with perfect speeds. No buffering or anything. I'm in love with this flash drive. Highly recommended!

    This device is a great wireless storage option.It charges through the USB connection. Connected via USB you can transfer data onto the supplied and swappable micro SD card. The app is easy to use for either an Apple or an Android device, once installed and connected will wirelessly stream or transfer photos, videos, etc. Being wireless you don't need to have a direct connection to your phone, tablet, etc. which is very useful especially if your device doesn't have a USB or SD port. It also leaves you more space on your device while keeping your other files at your fingertips.

    My needs have since moved on to a larger more permanent solution like the cloud external drives, but if you are looking for something to move small files around between devices and PCs, this works excellent. On the PC it works like a regular USB drive, but an application needs to be installed on android devices*, but the app is easily configured and easily connects. Battery life is good for a few hours. As mentioned, this is not a good option for permanent filesharing/back-ups, but works great for smaller tasks. *I never tried it on an iPad/iPod, but I think it works there too

    Great wifi backup for pics off our phones

    We picked this up before a Disneyland trip. We have iphones and limited memory space. We set this up with both of our phones prior to our trip. You simply download an app to your phone to use it. You turn on the device and press the app on your phone and your pictures and videos will transfer right over! This allowed us the flexibility to delete photos off our phones when the memory filled up. We got home and plugged this into our computer and all of our pictures came right up! This is a great option for people with phones that there is no removable or expandable memory options.

    We used this to stream movies to 3 different devices while traveling on an airplane to Florida. Each stick held approximately 30 movies that we downloaded for the trip. Device was fairly easy to setup and use. Download the app to your device and turn on wifi and link them. I was worried there would be buffering issues, but we didn't experience that at all. The only thing I'd like to see improved is when you turn the device off, it doesn't remember where you were in the movie and you have to find your spot again. Very happy with this purchase!

    This product was basically a lucky find. Other devices are made with a lightening connector that will allow you additional storage for an iDevice but this product blows that out of the water. Load your files, it fits a standard USB car charging adapter. Both my kids have iPads and can sit in the back seat and watch 2 separate videos and no lag in the stream. Would most definitely recommend this product and I will be buying more.

    This USB / wireless flash drive is a cool little gadget that provides extremely mobile wireless storage for your smartphone, tablet, or any other device that has a wireless connection. Just setup the app on your device, turn on the flash drive and you are good to go. Decent transfer speeds and upgradable / changeable memory because it uses a microSD card. I used it while traveling to hold extra movies and tv shows for my iPad - worked great!

    This is an outstanding device for downloading from Apple products, especially from iPhones and iPads which don't have USB ports. I use it primarily for downloading photos, videos, and documents. Although I have not used this aspect yet, it can be connected to tablets, laptops, and other devices without the use of WiFi. This may be good for presentations to small groups or classes in places where a wireless connection is unavailable. This is an outstanding device.

    Like most Apple converts, I suffer from storage limitations. Apple's lack of an SD slot or USB port means you're stuck with whatever storage size your device came with. Couple that with Apple's ridiculous pricing on their storage options leaves you with either too little storage on your device, or too little left in your pocket. I bought this for my 32GB Ipad mini w/ Retina. Works like a charm once you pair it over wi-fi. Now I've doubled my storage for less than $50.

    Best solution for iOS

    Yes the app could use some work (file transfer is kind of tedious especially for those who don't work with files on a regular basis). But the concept is SOLID, a stand alone wifi hub attached to it's own onboard storage. AND you can switch out the micro SD cards! Basically this little wifi flash drive extends the memory of your iOS devices by whatever you want it to be, all that's required of you is a little file jockeying.

    Found this on a daily special and I'm thrilled. Load up whatever you want movies tv shows a photo archive and don't over tax your space on your rablet phone or laptop. It hold plenty and easily connects via its own wifi to your device i used it on a 4.5 hour flight to Vegas with no probls. Highly recommend. Still want to try it to take photos in my camera and then move them for publication right from my phone. Pretty slick not needing a laptop.
