iFlashDrive for ipads, ipods and iphones

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.

hard drive storage for iOS devices

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.

The iFlashdrive can even back up contacts and also link to a Dropbox account, save and views files from the cloud on the go.

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

Watch TV on your iPad or Iphone 4s

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.

An iPhone 4S Battery Drain Solution

Energizer AP1201 for iPhone 4 and 4S

Energizer AP1201 for iPhone 4 and 4S

We thought we’d share this email from a customer who found a solution to massive battery drain on the iPhone:

Hi Steve,

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.

Dave

Thanks Dave!
