The i-FlashDrive HD is the only portable storage solution for iPads, iPods and iPhones, with the ability to copy, swap, save, play and back up files across multiple devices. The plug, play, drag and drop pocket-sized drive allows sharing of files across iOS devices without the need for icloud or wifi connections.
The i-FlashDrive comes with both USB and 30-pin dock connector enabling a two-way data transfer between iOS devices and Mac or PC. It allows files to be transferred and saved like a regular USB drive and then view the files on the iPad, iPhone or iPod simply by plugging it in to the 30-pin dock connector, or just use it like an external hard drive for your portable iOS devices
The first time the iFlashdrive is plugged into your iOS device it automatically launches a notification to download the free iFlashdrive app.
With the USB connector it can be connected to any Mac or PC to allow users to simply drag and drop their files onto the device and by-pass having to use iTunes. There is no need to install any software drivers
Over 30 files types can be viewed, saved, copied and can include pictures, videos, audio, Excel, PowerPoint and Word files along with Keynote, Pages and Numbers files.
For pictures the device will accept all of the major files types – BMP, TIF, TIFF, XMB, GIF, ICO, CUR, JPG and PNG while the iFlashdrive will also accept all of the major video files – MPV, M4V, MOV, MP4.
For Audio the iFlashdrive can play MP3, CAF, ACC, AIF WAV AIFF and M4A files
Users can organise the iFlashdrive by creating new folders and creating new text files, upload and download photo files and even use it as a voice recorder.
It’s also possible to delete files, move files and copy files within the iFlashdrive just as you would with a USB drive on a computer.
If you own an iPad, iPhone or an iPod, then the iFlashdrive allows you to directly share files on the run and view files stored on the device’s flash memory instead of from the iOS products built in memory.
No need to to sacrifice precious space aboard your iOS.
The iFlashdrive is compatible with the new iphone 5 and ipads if a lightning dock adapter is used between the iphone 5 and iflashdrive
The iFlashdrive is available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB online from Mr Mobile Australia
We all love to watch TV, whether it is sports, reality TV or high drama and now watching TV anywhere, anytime on your ipad or iphone 4S is possible. Watching Australian Free to Air TV on your ipad2, new iPad or iphone4S is amazingly simple with the plug and play iDTV dock. Simply download the free app from the app store, plug in your iDTV, tune in your channels and start watching TV.
There is no streaming of TV over a mobile network, no internet connection and no requirement to log into a wifi network . No additional software and most importantly no data usage on your mobile plan. The iDTV has its own built in battery so you wont drain the power from your devices.
We love our sport and with the Olympics just around the corner this TV dock is essential for viewing all the action and if you can’t watch your favourite program live, you can hit the record button and watch it later.
Of course like any Free to Air TV, users must be in a good DVB-T reception area , or if not simply use the optional supplied terrestrial antenna to receive a great signal and excellent TV picture .
Unlike other mobile TV products, this has a very simple set up.
There is a free App from the Apple Apps store which supports the iDTV dock and provides an easy to use interface for watching, scrolling thru channels and recording your favourite shows all whilst on the go. Once connected users can tune into the Australian TV channels which is done automatically when the app is first launched.
The iDTV is MFI certified (made for iphone/ipad) and you will also need to be running your iPad 2, New iPad or iphone 4s with the latest iOS . The iDTV has its own built in battery which means it wont run the power down on your iOS devices, during testing we got over 6 hours of viewing time.

We thought we’d share this email from a customer who found a solution to massive battery drain on the iPhone:
I rang the other day and spoke to you in regards the poor performance, or so i thought of my Energizer AP1201.
I investigated online the issue of the battery in the 4s and ended up ringing Applecare and discussing it with them. I was quickly put onto a senior technical adviser. Following Ed’s advice I backed up the phone via iTunes and then fully restored the phone. His advice was not too load any apps, songs etc onto it for a while and see how the battery goes.
I did this, and have progressively added all my apps and tunes back on.
I have turned off all the location services to all but 2 apps, and only use iCloud to sync my calendar, relying on iTunes over WiFi to sync/backup the rest when I get home. Siri on as well.
Since the restore it is still running on the initial 100% charge, 48hrs later with 30% charge left. Usage (awake time) of over 6 hrs. According to the System Activity App it has 8hrs left too empty. A lot more respectable than the <12hrs I was initially getting.
I think one of the main culprits in my case was the Diagnostics and Usage Data that was being sent to Apple every 30 secs, which is now set to Don’t Send. Since the restore it has only generated 7 low memory / crash reports, nothing like the 100’s it spat out in the first week.
So it appears mine’s all fixed. With the Energizer skin I will have up near 5 days power if needed.
Hope you find some of this info useful.
Are you one of the lucky ones to have got your hands on the new iPhone 4S. Or are you secretly pleased that you didn’t take the leap as stories of terrible battery life flood the internet?
There is nothing more annoying than losing battery fast and it seems that the iPhone 4S is guilty. It isn’t just the chosen few who own an iPhone 4S that are plagued with trouble. Those of us who have upgraded to iOS 5 are finding that battery life on the iPhone and iPad is seriously affected. And it’s slow!
We’ve done the research and collated the best tips from the best sources, to help your battery life last longer. We’d love to hear your tips too!
One site has suggested killing off Siri. She’s the best thing about the iPhone 4S – so try these other tips first and let us know if Siri makes it out alive!
Back to Basics
There are things that always drain battery life regardless of the operating system or the device. These include data services, screen brightness and mail.
– Screen brightness – turn this down for longer battery life
– Keep these off unless you actually use them: bluetooth, WiFi, 3G (for data)
– Turn the push functionality off on your email. Or have it push less often. Go to Settings – Mail, Contacts, Calendar – Fetch New Data
You now have the option of backing up to iCloud rather than through iTunes on your computer. This will be a great relief for many – but is causing headaches for some.
Turning off non essential features in iCloud will definitely save your battery life. Go to Settings – iCloud – Storage & Backup. After turning off the backup – it more than doubled my battery life!
There seem to be some bugs in iOS 5 which are affecting battery life. Particularly with the Calendar Alerts.
Turn off notifications in the settings for your calendar. Go to Settings – Notifications – Calendar and switch it off. It appears that the notifications feature is constantly sorting your appointments and this is sucking huge amounts of battery life.
It’s All about Location
Geo location apps need to know your current location in order to work. The new iPhone 4S has a major push on these apps and the new iOS 5 pings more regularly to find your current location. This is going to suck your battery dry faster than a starving vampire!
Go to Settings – Location Services and select the ones that you wish to be kept regularly updated. Some are a no brainer like Maps, but all those games and other apps that really don’t need to know where you are……Turn them off!
Sneaky System Services
There is a new feature in the iOS 5 update called System Services. This has features such as sending your data to Apple for their stats and information for location based ads and other services. These settings are hiding under Settings – Location Services – System Services (right down the bottom!)
Turn these ones off:
– Diagnostics and Usage (sends stats to Apple)
– Location Base iAds (on free apps that have advertising – this makes sure it is local advertising – do you ever read it anyway?
– Setting Time Zone (leave this on if you travel regularly – otherwise remember to adjust your time zone if you travel into a new one)
– Traffic (I use the traffic apps so I like the programs that use this to see where there is congestion – however turning this off will help your battery life!)
There are other things you can do and our bestadvice: Never get caught without a battery backup. We have a full range of iPhone battery skins that double your battery life as well as portable battery packs for your iPad and Smart phones.
Check out our range today and it will be in the post tomorrow!
Fingers too fat for the iPhone keypad? Sick of smudges on your iPad screen? Or sick of products that only work for Apple devices?
I was recently given one of these nifty little gadgets: a mini stylus pen for the iPhone or iPad. I was so impressed with its functionality, its store-ability and its cuteness that I just have to tell you about them. Having a stylus reminds me of the days when I had a Palm device. I don’t want to go back there….they were fiddly and I always used to lose them. So I was dubious when I was given this funny looking toy.
Little did I know that it would become a feature hanging off my iPad and that I’d need to get one for my iPhone too! Everywhere I go people ask me where I got it. I’ve even had someone in a restaurant ask when they saw me typing away.
The mini stylus pen comes in 5 classy colours (blue, red, white, black and silver) and boasts the following features:
– Compact, short design (4cm long) – with good width to hold even between the clumsiest of fingers
– Soft rubber angled tip provides enough contact with screen to allow proper electrocurrent flow to replicate the use of your finger on the touchscreen (so precision typing and other actions are easy).
– Clever clip that pops into a 3.5mm headphone jack making it easy to carry around and never get lost!
– Prevents smudging, scratching and damage to the screen
Gotta have one? They make a clever gift for the person who has everything…..or loves the latest gadgets!
