Would have been four stars. 3/5
By wanna buy an ipad?
The IXpand drive is a very clever device. It gets around the problem that Apple Inc. has created.
Apple wants all of our files in their Cloud.

Frustrating inconsistent user interface 2/5
By Fiji Fugitive
App opens with a series of splash screens telling you how great the app is but are totally useless. You have 3 options: “view files”; “copy files”; or “backup”.
I only wanted to move a file from “Files” to the flash so I could give it to the desk clerk to print. 45 minutes later.... grrrrr.
The “view” option only shows space dedicated to the app not any other files on your phone. “Copy” only allows moving photo from the phone to flash or moving files from the flash to the phone. But again only to iXpand dedicated file space. No hint at all.
Turning to the internet for a clue there are several videos that show lots of stuff but nothing about what I wanted to do.
Here’s the hint you need. Go to “Settings” scroll to iXpand and turn on “Open With “. It wasn’t on for me. Without it you might locate a second screen that allows you to view the space dedicated to iXpand but any attempt to do anything will do nothing and there will be no error message.
If you do find the video telling you to use the “share” button you will wonder why there are no options to Share with iXpand.
Ok, we finally have copied the file we wanted to the flash drive. How do we organize that space? Well if you want to create a new folder you must first select a file then at the top of the page you should see an option to create a new folder. It may be scrolled off the top.
Ok we finally create the folder. I would expect it to show up in the “view” but it won’t until you return to the opening screen and then back to “View”.
Really horrible interface that will frustrate you forever. But also quite useful once you figure it out.
Update crashes app 1/5
By My iPhone white
New updated crashes app and wish we can turn off auto backup wish I could give it Zero Stars fix these two issues and it’s a five star app better off buying a different brand drive
A Quick FYI 5/5
FWI the back up features only work on iphone X and later, all my iphones with home buttons had problems with the backup feature, great app thou
Very slow,wont load pictures 1/5
Ok so I got this flash drive hoping it would be fast but noooo..it was quite the opposite.Its so sloww and it doesn’t even load my pictures I transferred on to the flash drive.i recommend a different faster flash drive app other than this one.dont waste your time.hope I can get help from the developers.
Good but when using with multiple devices... 4/5
I like it with one exception: when you backup contacts or schedule there is no way of determining which device it came from “Contacts” or “Schedule” is all you get. Now you can create a a named folder
‘iPhone 6 contacts’ or ‘Eileen’s schedule backup’ and copy your backups to the location, but now you’re talking about multiple steps to do so, and then delete the others???
Why Don’t you get the option of naming the folder before the backup??
iPhone Adapter for photos 5/5
Awesome capabilities in regards to transferring large photo documents and storage.
Works great, but .... 1/5
Bought this to backup and move hundards of photos and videos from iPhone. Works great until I noticed the change of file name. Instead of IMGxxxx.xxx, the file name become long and using random letters and numbers which make it difficult and hard to track down the files.
Hope you guys would make change so that the original file name would be retain.
Nice I enjoy the app they recommend to me for my video that weren’t playing.
ًvery slow 3/5
Drains battery and crashes 1/5
Phone is on 100% charged battery and when I plug the drive in, it drains it down to where the phone shuts off(below 10%)
This has happened after the last recent update.
Unreliable - Endless error messages 1/5
By V. C. Gg345
After what looked like a successful backup of my photos onto the drive, an error message said:
“Successfully backed up 0 items“.
Another error message said the same thing, and said it again and again and again.
There is no guidance as to what went wrong, or how to solve the problem.
So many error messages, and so little guidance as to what to do.
Currently not working 2/5
Has worked great until yesterday, the last update now doesn’t connect the drive to the app. It says to plug in the device only after I have plugged in the device. If I could undo the last update it would work great again and I could use the drive. Right now it’s useless and I’m trying to free up space for my vacation in a week.
Deserves 5...even 6 stars but... 4/5
As convenient and slick and sturdy and easy-to-use and affordable as this thing is, it does really need to be able to interface better with the more common apps (printing, editing, sharing/sending, etc.) I’d leave it plugged into my phone forever if I didn’t need to charge my battery.
—Maybe it’s “new” and needs to grow but I feel like it’s too “basic”, but then again maybe I have the basic model. Either way, YOU WILL NOT BE DISSATISFIED. I’m not over stating when I say your phone needs this object in its life. You’ll wonder how you got along without it. Not joking.
—-It’s sooo useful I worry someday it’ll keep my pics and fail because it feels too good to be real.
—-> One last thing: it won’t transfer my MUSIC. ??? Like I said, should cooperate with more of the common “space-hogging” apps (in particular, Amazon Music). Oooohh!! Alexa enabled!! Now that’s a good idea. Your welcome. 🤫
Tried for several days to get help from support. Keeps saying there mailbox is full and can’t accept anymore emails. Total lack or caring for customers
IXpand so far so good 5/5
Had the iXpand for a week or so as of today 4 September 19. Downloading all my pics was a breeze with the app. Still working around downloading a movie or tv show from Netflix or Amazon prime to watch off line at a later time. Open to any suggestions from other iXpand users.

I love it. It clears my telephone in seconds.
Awesome Product 5/5
I love this product. So easy to use and fast. I don’t have to do anything. I just plug it in and it does all the work for me
Disappointed With SanDisk 1/5
I have a iPad Pro and bought the iXpand thinking it should be straightforward. I’ve tried using it over the last six months with poor results.
1. The device isn’t recognized consistently. 30% of the time I have to reinsert or it just hangs
2. The app is slow to initiate and read files.
3. Cannot copy files from secureaccess in app.
4. Can ONLY view files from drive not edit or open.
5. Cannot open any excel formatted files.
6. Cannot transfer files to ixpand drive easily under the app.
The app interface needs some serious rework in design to make it more functional.

Love it so much!!
It never transfers over. 1/5
I tried and tried yet it never transfers anything. After trying 3 times over an hour it just kept running. I then left it overnight to see if it needed more time but after 6 hours and down to 10% battery it’s still organizing! It never transfers to the flash drive.
Crash and bugs 1/5
For these last few days, I want to back up my pictures. It’s just about 205 photos, whenever I tried to copy, it felt buggy and crash everytime it started to transfer files. What the heck!
I love it 5/5

Not working on my iPhone X 5/5
Everytime I try to copy files from my iPhone X, i am prompted that I must request a replacement drive. Hope you guys can fix this.
NEED TO IMPROVE 3/5
I love the fact that I can save my photo so instantly anytime anywhere I can carry it with me in my purse without taking up space THE ONLY THING I WISH IT WOULD IMPROVE ON IS FOR IT NOT TO ALLOW DUPLICATE PHOTOS TO UPLOAD
Gross Violation of Privacy 1/5
By fftj dyutgfurg
The drive comes disabled. The downloaded contract that comes with the app spans an ungodly amount of pages of hostile legalese. Delving into the contract just a little reads like an agreement with Adolph Hitler for voluntarily entering a Nazi concentration camp. The contract says you have no rights and they can sue you for anything, for any reason far beyond just storing a file on a drive. It vaguely says it can take control of your phone/tablet to use for any purpose. This contract makes common spyware look like a birthday present. I promptly uninstalled the app and returned the drive for a refund.
The very BEST for storing any iPhone pictures 5/5
I absolutely luv my it, best investment ever, so far I haves stored all of my 1500 photos and there is still a lot of space. True Ly the best investment I ever made.
Useless app as it crashes within seconds, ALWAYS 1/5
My iXpand 3.0 256MB is useless! With no response from several messages sent to SanDisk. The app repeatedly crashes within seconds of accessing the drive within seconds. I have updated its firmware with a borrowed PC in an effort to correct the problem myself, no success. My 3 iPad Pros and my iPhone ALL see the app crash. With the promised new operating systems from Apple for the iPhone and iPad this fall to allow SD memory cards to more directly exchange data apparently is my future, the IXpand purchase was a mistake.
