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

Will You Kill Siri? Battery drain pain for iPhone 4S and iOS 5 users

Battery drain pain for iPhone 4S and iOS 5 users

Battery drain pain for iPhone 4S and iOS 5 users

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.

Solution
–       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

iCloud Backup
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.

Solution
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!

Buggy Bugs
There seem to be some bugs in iOS 5 which are affecting battery life. Particularly with the Calendar Alerts.

Solution
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!

Solution
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!)

Solution
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!)

Another Solution

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!

Tablet Explosion: Are you charged up?

XPAL Lucy for iPad2

Super charge your Tablet!

Have you noticed the explosion in the Tablet market? If you think I’m talking pharmaceuticals, then you’ll be disappointed. Every month there seems to be the launch of a new tablet. Everyone is getting in on the action and with some of the low price points; the Apple iPad is facing tough competition.

There’s the popular, Blackberry Playbook, Samsung Galaxy Tabs and the iPad to the latest and cheapest to hit the market, the Amazon Kindle Fire at just $200. Even Sony, Fujitsu, Lenovo, Acer, Toshiba, Asus, Motorola and HP have launched their own versions (just to name the brands – there are more!). HP quickly halted production, but only after selling massive volumes at a reduced price. It will be interesting to see if this has the iMate effect (when Vegemite launched a product that failed – and everyone bought them to hold onto and sell later).

Either way…..do you have a tablet? What do you use it for?

We have the perfect accessory to accompany your tablet, so it never runs out of battery in the middle of watching a movie, in a client meeting or on that last level of Angry Birds!

The Energizer® Energi to Go® portable power packs pack a punch when it comes to charging your tablet battery. Many of the above mentioned tablets have quite poor battery life, so this handy solution will help you when you need it most.

Below we compare the two most popular battery packs the XP 4000 and XP 8000 to help you decide the best solution.  The XP 4001 and XP 18000 are also great options.   We’ve also put together a table to highlight the available connectors for your tablet.  The folks at XPAL power are always updating this list as more tablets come onto the market.
