iFlash USB Drive for iPhone and Mac/PC

The iFlash: A USB Drive for Your Phone and Mac/PC

Last year, I finally gave up on carting a separate point-and-shoot camera on my travels. That decision coincided with the purchase of my iPhone 5 which (if you don’t know) boasts a really slick camera. But storing all of my photos in one place is a bit nerve-wracking.

Apple’s built-in Photo Stream feature on the iPhone is nice for backing up your photos automagically … provided you have internet access. But for those times when you don’t, it’s pretty sweet to have an elegant backup solution.

Enter the iFlash – a USB drive that works for your iPhone (or iPad or iPod) *and* Mac/PC.

The Skinny

In short, The iFlash features include:

  • Move files quickly without syncing
  • Store up to 8GB (30-pin connector) or 16GB (lightning connector) – 1000’s of photos!
  • View files directly from the drive without transferring them onto your phone
  • Carry and show off your portfolio anywhere
  • Clear up space on your phone/pad/pod while you’re out and about (no computer necessary)

The Traveler’s Take

You could very well use the iFlash as a simple, seamless backup solution for your iPhone’s photos. And, for that purpose, it works flawlessly. As I’m backup obsessed, I copy my photos to three separate locations at the end of every travel day. With the iFlash, simply backup all the photos on your phone and throw the drive into your hotel’s safe (or other secure location separate from your actual mobile device). Done.

But the nice part about it is that, by downloading the free complementary app, it offers a variety of other nice-to-have features. You can view photos and video directly from the drive, organize your files into folders, encrypt all your data, and even sync with Dropbox directly from the drive.

What’s more – it supports all of the most common file types:

  • Photos – BMP, CUR, GIF, ICO, JPG, PNG, TIF, TIFF and XMB
  • Videos – AVI, FLV, MKV, MOV, MPG, MPV, MP4, M4V, RM, RMVB, TS, and WMV
  • Documents – DOC, TXT, HTML, Keynote, Numbers, Pages, PDF, Power Point, Excel and RTF
  • Audio – MP3, CAF, ACC, AIF, WAV, AIFF and M4A

… so you’ll have access to virtually any one of your files on the go.
