APP CRASHES after a while 2/5
By Dr. J. Steve
App needs to be worked on, many crashes.
La aplicación 5/5
Muy buena la recomiendo y verán
Great backup device 5/5
By Janine's picks
I purchased this jump drive to move photos from my IPhone to a computer. It’s been easy to use and has freed up space on my phone.
Needs Improvement 3/5
Need the option to stretch the screen if you leave bad reviews they may delete them to raise there rating rather then learn from them. Pausing the video then playing it can cause it to restart. They need to place the pause button further away from the fast forward. Now when I clear cache it take take over 20 minutes still waiting for it to finish!!!
IXpand Sandisk - Peeeeeeerfect 5/5
Great storage , easy to use , does on multiple devices , m very happy .
good but still take a lot of storage. 2/5
this is great for storing photos and video but for iphone users who only have 16gb of storage, this will certainly not help. my phone only have 3.8 gb left;while using this drive and recording video straight to the disk drive, it was still consuming all of my iphone storage. i can’t even download the video from the disk drive to my iphone due to low storage as well.
App does not detect the drive. 1/5
I have the newest iXpand drive 256gb and it never detects my device.
Running latest updates of all software and firmware.
Currently useless for what I needed it for... $79 bucks wasted unless I can find out how to get the app to work.
It detects it enough to know something has changed in the plug to reset the app but I can’t view files on the device :-/. Just tells me to plug it into the device.
I did format it when I got it... did that clear off important files?
Disappointed-no music back up 3/5
I thought this did more than just photos. Unless there is another app. It does not let you copy or manage music like it does for photos.
Nothing but trouble 1/5
Seriously flawed. The features that work are great. The separation of files into years, for instance. But the drive freezes on my iPad mini 5. Click in view files files and 9 times out of ten the system just hangs. It’s unreliable. Glitches galore. Too unreliable. Try backing up and the back up takes forever. Is it backing up or just dead. No visual cues to see what’s happening. No messages verifying backup. Files sometimes are backed up but not always. Not recommended. Cannot trust it. Try iDiskk or HooToo for smooth operation.
Some issues with the drive but the app is good. 3/5
By H Makkar
I don't know why but my flash drive just doesn't work that much. It doesn't get detected most of the time, but when it does the app does a good job. One annoying thing is that you can't turn the screen off during the backup process. If anyone has any solutions to the drive not being detected please contact me.
Stopped working! 3/5
I absolutely love this device when I first got it! I recommended it to everybody I knew. But after six months, it is no longer working. I updated it to the newest version on my PC, I deleted the app from my iPhone and reinstalled it. But it is just hung up when I try to move files. I am so sad and disappointed!
A suggestion 4/5
A suggestion for this product / app: it would be amazing if it could also back up messages too (typical sms and iMessage conversations with pictures). I use these drives actively for the iPads and iPhones in service with my job where these conversations can be pretty important to refer back to sometimes years after the last message exchange.
IPAD safety. 4/5
By Bashful Babe
By buying this drive I was able to relax. I was getting low on space and afraid some update would wipe me out like it did on My phone. So far no complaints just happy.
A Ruoko312 5/5
By Capt Snookie
If I buy a device would like to use it with out my personal info being gathered and shared it’s western digital. On other operating systems I could just wipe the usb and store with what ever files I want. Anyone have any tips how I can clear San disk application and still store data on usb?
Small software bugs, big value 4/5
I have been very happy with the storage space the iXpand drive provides at relatively low cost. My older iPad now has plenty of space for my files, and I can easily move images, music, and video from my computers to the flash drive. There are some small, frustrating problems with the software that lead to its operating slowly and crashing at first. But now that it's running okay, no major problems.
Fantastic item I love this thing
Excelente herramienta para guardar fotos! 5/5
Don’t waste your money. This works very well moving files from the drive to your phone but not the other direction. The app crashes every time you try to get a file from the phone to the drive.
By Eman ruoy
Software crashes extremely slow backup. I own 2 of these devices and no improvement!!!!! Horrible support!!!! Very disappointed !!!!! Never again will I purchase product!!!
In my opinion, 5.0.9 stinks 1/5
By Midwest Guy 4567
1) often fails to recognize iXpand Flash Drive 3.0 when it is inserted into iPhone.
2) program backs up photos using random number names (not IMG_0001, IMG_0002 names), then separates them into folders by month and year. When backed up photo files are viewed on my PC, photos are not in the order they were taken. So, for example, the May 2019 photos are in random order, rather than the order they were taken in.
3) when first running this program, it appears to go into an infinite loop (over 15 minutes with a spinning circle and “Arranging your content ...” message) without showing any file count or any other indication of progress. And this “arranging” starts without any warning, or any way to stop it.
Great product 5/5
Really easy to use!
Love this thing 5/5
By Retired and Riding
Great little device. I use it between my PC my iPhone my iPad. I can transfer files back-and-forth, with it I can backup everything I’d be lost without it.
This app is absolutely terrible. It opens and sits for several minutes without doing anything, then it freezes up. The interface is absolutely horrible and difficult to navigate. Honestly, I can’t tell you much else because it never downloaded or backed up anything I told it to. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!
Bad application setup 1/5
By Matt Fertitta
The flash drive works well, but the application is unorganized. Never saves the files correctly, not all the files save. Difficult to find once they’re saved on the app. I have full music albums on the iXpand Drive & have copied to an IPad, but once the flash drive is removed it’s all unorganized & there are no albums available, only songs in alphabetical order.
I would rate it at a negative -5 stars, but I had no choice but to give it one star.
Worth the money and more!!!
Great Tech 5/5
First ever flash drive I’ve used that connects directly to my iPhone. Love it!
Room for improvements 2/5
I have an iPhone X and it’s a bit confusing when coping files ( fotos, music, Vedeo and more..) Has many errors and coping contacts does not work well. Still needs a lot of improvement. At east pictures seem to be the major reason why I still use it. But come on why add the rest of the files if they don’t work well. Make it work perfectly or don’t add it at all.
It Works Flawlessly 5/5
By Joby - Lakewood WA USA
Simply the best such device for use with my iPad Pro, iPhone and Windows 10. Moving and backing up files between all my systems works flawlessly.
The best 5/5
By خالد السعدي من قطر
This is the best
Es una buena occion
Zero star 1/5
This app with iPhone X changes the suffixes, change the dates, don't recognize some jpg, etc
Worst app for photos files ever seen!
I bought this when my gf and I broke up. I could not force myself to delete all of the photos of our relationship off of my phone- But it hurt to much to have them always there..........So it kept all our memories safe until we got back together.
Now I use it primarily to save space on my phone and always have a backup of my photos in case of emergency.
Back up is fast, and easy.
Good for printing photos at stores.
Built extremely well—
True story- I washed mine in the washing machine and dried for 90 minutes and it still works perfectly.🤷🏻♂️😂
Easy to use 4/5
By Green gazer
I enjoy knowing I have my photos saved if I lose my phone or some other situation arises. It is easy to use and small enough to store. Will buy again if needed
Mr Snap on 5/5
By Mr Snap-on
Perfect little device. I tell all me friends about it. I lose phone at the rate of 2-3 a year. But I still have my pictures..
Finally! Best invention since the paper towel!!!!
I bought this device for backing up my iPhone. Everything seemed fine, the backup was flawless and quick, the ability to either use the pre created folders or giving you the ability to create new ones and even the automatic backup when connected. Everything sounds good, no? Well, not quite. I backup the photos taken with my DSLR to my phone and they have a different name than the standard IMGxxx format so I can differentiate them when I transfer them to my PC. After copying all the files from my iPhone to the IXpand, it changed the name of ALL the photos. Worse, it added a ~photo or ~video suffix to each file depending what it is. I checked on the app, but there is no option to turn that off. I checked online and it seems that it was a unilateral decision from Sandisk to change the naming convention a while ago and despite all the complaints from unhappy customers, Sandisk does not seem to listen to what the people is asking for.
I guess I will keep it but backing up my phone looks like it’s going to be a very tedious job and that’s not what I was looking for. And for that, my rating is 3 out of 5.
By REAL Venus In Furs
Trying to open the app and just keeps crashing. Unusable not worth the time or money
Xpind flash 5/5
It’s very good
Can’t play video 1/5
No mp4 files will play properly in the app. Makes the drive useless.
I like it 5/5
It doesn’t work 1/5
Not work on my iPad Pro 2018 with a USB-C SanDisk driver
Useful utility 5/5
Simple and easy to use. Cheaper alternative to iCloud paid storage.
Easy to use 5/5
I appreciate the ability to transfer pictures from my Apple devices to my external hard drive. I am still learning what I can accomplish.
Great app! 5/5
Useful and efficient
Changing File Type 2/5
I started moving everything as I was expecting this to work because we had the same brand (different look) of flash drive for moving files at my parents house. However, this one CHANGES the file type. Instead of JPEG, it’s something weird that no computer will open without purchasing ANOTHER app ON the computer. Let’s just hope that it still allows pictures to be printed/uploaded from that file type. Or else I will have to pay SOMEONE ELSE to get all my pictures off in the RIGHT format or else I would lose precious memories of my only son.
Too slow 3/5
By multi iphone user
Otherwise it works well
