The new iXpand Flash Drive from SanDisk targets iPhone and iPad owners

SanDisk wants to make moving files from an iPhone or iPad to a Mac or Windows PC easier with the launch of the new iXpand Flash Drive and a companion iOS app.'

SanDisk says:

The iXpand Flash Drive is a powerful, yet simple-to-use solution that quickly transfers photos and videos from an iPhone or iPad to a Mac or PC — all without cables, Internet connections, or bandwidth limitations. In addition, it maintains the original photo or video resolution quality. The full-featured iXpand sync app is exceptionally intuitive, creating a seamless user experience. It launches when the iXpand Flash Drive is plugged into an iPhone or iPad and can be configured to automatically sync photos and videos from the camera roll to the drive. In addition, users can store their favorite movies on the iXpand Flash Drive and instantly play them directly from the drive on their iPhone or iPad.

SanDisk is currently selling the iXpand Flash Drive in 16GB and 64GB versions for $59.99 and $119.99, respectively. A 32GB version will go on sale Sunday, November 16 exclusively at Best Buy's stores and on its website for the price of $79.99. Will you be buying this flash drive for your iOS device?

  • Depends on if the Apple Store has my 128gb 6 Plus when I get there later... Looks like a nice, albeit pricey, solution. Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • My front line devices are all synced. No need for this. I could see a use for it with my older testing devices that have a 30 pin connector. Alas this is only lightning and USB.
  • for that price? no way. i don't really care enough about my photos or videos for something like this.
  • Definitely a little spendy. With the free cloud storage options and inexpensive cloud options it seems these type of products are real niche market segment accessories. Add to that the 128 GB idevices now too. Just not seeing this myself. Sent from the iMore App
  • But can it do music? There are other apps and cloud solutions that allow you to send documents and pictures, but (afaik) none allow your to upload your music onto the iDevices.
  • This is sort of like the channel button on the side of your TV, why get up off the couch to use it if you have a remote control?
  • Perfect solution for moving files quickly without an Internet connection on a PC. Been waiting for this! Sent from the iMore App
  • FYI - 2/15/15-2/21/15 the iXpand 32gb goes on sale for $59.99 at best buy!
