iXpand Flash Drive adds easy-to-use extra storage to your iPad and iPhone

Susie Ochs | Nov. 14, 2014
With iPhones and iPads snapping 8-megapixel images and HD video like it's going out of style, storage can quickly become an issue--especially as Apple has kept the entry-level models at 16GB even while increasing storage for the higher-end versions.

A sidebar in the iXpand Sync app provides at-a-glance info about the drive's remaining battery life, as well as how much space you have left on the iXpand drive and on your device itself. There's even a shortcut to back up all your phone's contacts to the drive, and restore them later.

Bottom line

The app could use some small refinements, like enabling the swipe-to-go-back gesture so I don't have to stretch for the back button in the upper-left corner. But what's here works well, and I'm impressed with the iXpand's build quality. If you have a Lightning-equipped iOS device that could use more storage, it's worth a look.
