Overall

After using this iOS flashdrive for about a few weeks , I didn’t find any faults this flash drive is built well I’ve reviewed many of these iOS flash drives on Youtube and all of them were fixed storage I never saw one that I could put my micro SD card in and even record from my Rebel camera and view the files on my iPad and edit on there if I wanted to until now. The software is quite basic as I pointed out unlike the Photofast app you can record in HD from your iPhone and it does look somewhat better than without the app. The instructions that come with the flash drive are just a few simple FAQ’s but I found some video tutorials and full instructions from the app developer which are much better to help out. In terms of transferring files it was quick not SUPER fast but fair, there is no lanyard but I had one from a old flash drive and used that one I do recommend you get one since it’s a small drive and you might lose the drive if it’s in a backpack
