One of the biggest gripes I hear from iPhone and iPad users, including my wife, is the lack of expandable memory.

The problem for us is generally when we’re travelling; taking lots of pictures and videos.

The folks at Sandisk apparently heard a lot of complaints like this because they created a device called iXpand.

iXpand looks like an oversized flash drive with both Apple’s Lightning connector and a USB connector.

Paired with their app, the device can automatically copy photos and videos from the camera roll whenever it gets connected.

This allows those with smaller storage capacities to free up valuable space while they’re on the go.

It can then be plugged into any computer to transfer the files off.

The iXpand comes in 16, 32 and 64 gigabytes and ranges from $60 to $120, so you’ll pay a premium for the convenience.

If iCloud is working for you, you won’t need this device, but if you’re like some people I know, checkout the link I have posted at
