When you think about portable devices, what are two of the most important attributes that you associate with such gadgets? For most of us, the answer will be quick and small. Of course, the device also needs to be functional. The i-FlashDrive from PhotoFast meets all of these expectations in a way that many Apple device users have been searching for as a supplement to their devices.

This flash drive is designed specifically for use with recent generation iPhones and iPads that use the lightning connector for charging and data transfer. On the other side of the device is a USB 3.0 connector for use with your Windows, iOS, or Linux computer system. Extremely efficient, the drive is small enough to tuck into your jean’s 5th pocket and keep on you at all times.

The fact is that many Apple fans struggle with storage space. There is no slot for external memory and few options for fast transferring data on and off the device. While more internal storage is available for purchase time, this comes at great cost on devices that are already not cheap to start with. The i-FlashDrive gives you the opportunity to bridge that gap at an affordable price.

How does it work? First of all, you can use it as an ordinary flash drive, but if that is what you wanted, you would have bought a regular flash drive. However, a free app, available in the Apple App Store, allows you to manage your device’s files, create a backup, transfer data, encrypt files, playback media without using iTunes, and more.

If you want to save a few dollars and are not as concerned with transfer speeds, there is a USB 2.0 flash drive version available for about $20 less. The USB 3.0 version starts at $79.99 for the 16 GB model. Drive sizes go up to 128 GB.
