How do you share files between your iPod touch, iPad or iPhone and Mac? Using WiFi — syncing function of iTunes? What if the Wi-Fi connectivity is not available or iTunes is not installed or internet is not accessible? Is there any easy way using which you can share files between your iPad and Mac?
HyperDrive’s iFlashDrive – tagged as the “world’s only flash drive for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch” is the easiest way to transfer data between your iDevices and Mac/PC. One end of this doohickey has a USB connector which can be attached to a Mac or Windows PC and the other end of the iFlashDrive contains a 30-pin dock connector for attaching any iOS device.
Plug-in the iFlashDrive to your Mac or PC to copy files to it. When connected to iOS device, you can see all your music, videos, and other files and interact with them directly off the drive itself. iFlashDrive App app which can be downloaded from Apple App Store lets you store, view and manage files on iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and iFlashDrive.
The app allows you to download files from the drive directly onto your device, but sadly, you can’t copy files from the device to the drive. You can even sync files from the drive to Dropbox through the app. Evernote and Box.net support will be added soon.
iFlashDrive is available in a 8GB version for $100, 16GB for $150, and 32GB for $200, an awfully expensive way to circumvent iTunes, but yes, useful when you are dealing with sensitive information.
