When Wi-Fi’s not available, it’d be nice if there were a simple and easy way to share files between your iPad and Mac without using a physical connection between the two. This is where iFlashDrive steps in.
This is Billed by the company as the “world’s only flash drive for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.” It has a USB connector on one end that can be attached to a Mac or PC and acts as a thumb drive.
You can connect the iFlashDrive directly to your iOS device on the other end. You can use it to see all your music, videos and other files and interact directly. You can download files from the drive to the device but not vice versa.
Pros: Transfer data between different iDevices and computers including sharing files, ability to play audio directly from drive etc.
Cons: Expensive, can’t watch video files directly from drive, disables Wi-Fi during operation.
