When you get an iKlips, it neatly packed in foam after you open the box. You get two silicone caps and a small pouch.
First thing you do is download the app on all of your iOS devices, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. You can also transfer your files on a MAC or PC on the USB end. You can see I’ve already transferred photo and movie files on my iKlips. What’s nice is you can see thumbnails of the photos files but not the movie files. I’m hoping in a future update the will add thumbnails on the movie files. That’s my only complaint with the app. In my opinion the app runs really smooth, I have no real issues in transferring files, playing music from the drive or watching my movie clips from the drive.
Other great things about this lightning drive are, you can take photos with the drive connected to your iDevices, supports exFAT and compatible with many file formats. exFAT support is especially nice for watching HD movies that are over 4GB. exFAT is the future for mobile devices, most USB drive will only support FAT32. With iPad Pro hitting the shelves soon, you will need the support for large format file transfers between devices. I see many mobile movie makers investing on iPad Pro for huge file transferring and serious movie editing. You will need a reliable lightning drive to transfer your large movie files quickly. I also see this lightning drive as a great tool for many mobile artists, mobile photographers and everything else mobile.
I’ve also read reviews where people had issues with the app not working properly. This is my advice for those people who have the problems. First uninstall and re-install the app on your mobile devices. You carry the old problems onto the app with every new update. The old problems will always be there and will drive you mad. Doing a hard restart with your iDevices is also helpful. Just hold the home and power button at the same time until your see the Apple logo on the screen. This actually works and my apps will run fine after doing this technique.
The iKlips is very well designed and very easy to use. You can transfer large files, watch movies, play music and keep with you at all times along with your iPhone. In today’s mobile world this is a need tool to carry with you. It’s very reliable no matter where your at, especially when you have can’t get a good WiFi connection. This will be handy for me on all day photo shoots and when I’m out in the desert shooting photos. You can’t beat a direct connection.
