iStick: USB Stick For iPhone Users
By Naveena Joy | May 23, 2014 6:40 PM EST
Apple accessories have interesting features based on compatibility and design. The recent introduction is the USB flash storage that has both a standard USB connector and an approved Apple lightning connector.
The iStick, developed by Sanho Corporation, allows the user to easily, quickly and safely move data among computers, iPhones, iPads and iPod touches without accessing the Internet, wireless networks or the Cloud where hackers and other server operators encroach upon.
The advantage of iStick over other USB drives is that it helps in free storage on iPhone giving fast access to files whenever and wherever required. One can transfer music from computer to an iPod touch by plugging the storage drive or playback directly from the iStick without any lengthy process of synchronization or pay for steaming services.
One can free up space on iPhone by storing all photos, videos and files to the high capacity iStick without any payment to the recurring online Cloud storage subscription.
The iStick also features a "hardware accelerated video decoder that supports a wide variety of non - iOS native video formats like MP4, M4V, MPV, MOV, MPG, MKV, AVI, WMV, RMVB, FLV, 3GP, GIF." This will help in getting quick access to movies on the phone without any Internet connectivity.
