~ Influence Central received a complimentary iXpand Flash Drive to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed here are our own.
With technology seemingly evolving faster than ever before, staying connected should prove easier. Sure, we all connect to Facebook or Twitter, but with so many different media and social outlets to post to, keeping in touch can become overwhelming. We should be able to post a photo from our iPad to Instagram with the perfect filter, while uploading a photo taken on our iPhone to Facebook and Twitter simultaneously. But good luck remembering which device we used to create that file or photo in the first place!
Frustration mounts when backing files up, say from an iPad, iPhone, and iPod, onto a computer at one time – a tedious yet necessary task. Even more challenging is transferring a file from one device to another. Whenever the family goes on vacation, it should be easier to share photos from one family member’s phone to another’s so when we get back to the office we can show our colleagues highlights of the trip! Most of the time, we give up because of the time-consuming and often confusing process of transferring the pictures.
With SanDisk’s new iXpand Flash Drive, we can move photos and videos between our iPhone, iPad, and computers with ease! Unlike a regular flash drive, iXpand has two different ports to upload files onto, so it fits Apple products AND computers. The flash drives come in 16, 32, 64, and 128 gigabytes, and starts at $59.99. iXpand not only helps transfer photos and videos, but also automatically syncs with devices, frees space, and allows for video-watching directly from the flash drive!
The iXpand flash drive employs an app that then downloads onto all your device. The free app helps manage your media from the flash drive, allowing you to set preferences of when and how photos and videos upload to specific devices. With three times the transfer speed of other flash drives, iXpand takes the time and hassle out of transferring files.
The iXpand Flash Drive can be purchased at Best Buy and Amazon.
