Very easy to use My iXPAND DRIVE , ❤️👍🎯😉‼️😁🌹🏆 5/5
By me self and I
Tried PNY and I-Easy Drive .
PNY is not as easy to use an understand how to use .
I-Easy Drive is not so easy to use and has crashed to the point my device won’t down load the soft ware again .
The expand drive works real fast and is real easy to understand , pop it in and chose what you want and it is done ,then you choose to delete from my device backed up on iXPAND drive and it is done 🤷♂️😁🎯😉❤️👍😍
V5.08 crashing constantly!!! 1/5
App is unusable on latest iPad Pro, keeps crashing constantly! Needs immediate update!
Taking too much of my phone space 2/5
By cute revered
I have this app because it is the only means I can use my xpan drive. I store everything basically on the drive and not one the app so I don't understand why it will take such a space on my phone. What is the use of it if it is taking the space I'm trying to safe by transferring my photos to the drive and the app still takes the space. I purchased the drive for an expensive price and deleting the app means I can't also use the drive. This sacks. Please if it's a bag, fix it.
Good but needs Improvement 4/5
This is great to save storage. BUT, One of the biggest problems I have is that if you delete something from the iXpand (folders, photos, videos, etc.) and if it’s on accident, it’s gone for good. There’s no “Deleted” section and I’ve spent all day and $70 trying to find a recovery for the iXpand. My advice is that you need to give iXpand a Deleted/Recyling Bin. That way if the users delete something on accident then they can get it back.
The other thing is you can’t remove things from folders. I’ve tried, it doesn’t work. You delete the entire thing doing so. There needs to be a way to do that to. Or if you delete the folder, you should be asked if you want to deleted the content within it or just folder and the content can stay.

They say it’s for iPhone / iPad but when you read the fine print it’s only up to iPhone 5 it’s not advertised correctly and what you need to know is buried ! I have enjoyed Sandisk before but this is bad advertising!
more space 5/5
i can download more music in my phone
Great, but can be improved. (Please read) 5/5
I just bought this and when I plugged it in it immediately redirected me to the App Store. This is a very nice feature that I have never known of. This app is very quick and helps you backup all of your files backed up. I have lost my contacts so many times and then I bought this thing because I had extra money to flex and bought a 32gb iExpand and was very satisfied with the results. Here are a few things that would help.
1. Add waterproof. (I don’t know if it has it and I’m not going to test it.)
2. Backup notes from the notes app.
3. Make a better casing for the usb. (It scratches pretty easily.)
4. Make it so that when your on a third party app you can browse the app from the third party app instead of downloading and then going to library.
5. Add fingerprint passcode to show files.
6. Re-make the browse files. (I don’t know why but it doesn’t show photos in the photo folder. It only shows if you click on photos)
I like it 5/5
It is awesome...
Intolerant of bad tech 1/5
I just pried Open the iceberg wrap & downloaded the app. 20 minutes later, the screen with the dog doing tricks is frozen to my screen. I will not tolerate this, and return it today to the store.
PDF errors 1/5
By Ron Borgstedt
I have filled out PDF forms on the ScanDisk and when they are pulled up the form; all the info that was filled in is blank. I do have Adobe Reader installed on the iPad Pro.
So the ScanDisk is useless, how to get money back?
Just Purchased the IXpand today and app crashes! 1/5
I’m so mad I wasted $25 on this iXpand from target because as soon as I tried to use the app it just crashes!! I have tried repeatedly to keep app running but definitely major app issues! Waste of time!
Worth having. I hope they can have a 1Tbyte made one day 5/5
Good to have
Works Great. Easy to transfer files from my iPhone to the jumpdrive. Only thing I wish is that you could select multiple pictures at once Instead of personally having to click each photo to add. Other than that it does make saving your photos and videos super easy.👍🏾
This does the same thing as the one I bought from amazon the was a Chinese brand. Except the Chinese brand worked better. This app is crap and the files upload to the drive slow. The ones you get from amazon are better and faster and you use your own sd card and cheaper.
VERY Poor Solution 1/5
By Steve H - Palm Beach FL
The flash drive itself is very nicely designed
But this software App makes the solution almost useless - limits file size to 50mb (about 3 min of MPG video), limits file types (no .mov or .gif) so smaller compression wont help, and hangs up with no error messages so you don’t know what is wrong
I strongly suggest you do not buy this flash drive
App doesn’t work 1/5
App is slow...renames files... couldn’t open files on computer after it transferred...
It no longer works what kind of update did this ruined the app video don’t sort alphabetically anymore!!!
Can you make it work with other Sandisk drives 3/5
Got an Ultra USB-c drive for my iPad Pro, but this app doesn’t recognize it. Is that forthcoming?
Not working!!! 1/5
By Don't worry my name
Worked well a before the iPhone iOS update now it’s not even recognizing the iPhone when plugged. We need a new update and quick, we paid for it!
The Best app ever 5/5
Thanx , use it and get a space in your phone easily .
It would be nice if iXpand can extract photos from iPhone text message.
Love the app and the drive I save so much storage on my phone
Severe problems 1/5
Think you could fix your app were as it might actually work????
Does not read drive. 1/5
Asks to plug in drive after drive has already been plugged in.
Customer support does not answer.
Verrrry Slowwwww 3/5
Works well, but as slow as a turtle. Ran it about 36 hrs to capture the initial backup.
Horrible product 1/5
I just bought this thing thinking that I was going to be able to use it easier and quicker than plugging my phone into my computer. I was wrong. First of all the app doesn’t even let you use it unless you agree to all of the stuff they want you to agree to. Second of all you have to create a new program on your computer and a password to open the vault. I seriously thought it was just going to be a plug-and-play type of situation. But it is not. It is no easier than just plugging your phone directly into your computer and dragging over your photos or videos. Simply a waste of money. And I wasted about an hour this morning trying to get it to work.
very useful and solved All of my problems about memory 5/5
IOS 12.1.4 needs new update no reading and dropping 3/5
support DEPT and developers. Need serious update on IXpand. After IOS update 12.1.4. Keeps on dropping intermittently.
IXPAND 3.0 5/5
Easy to use right out of the box. Tons of space. Small and compact and super versatile. The only thing missing is a carrying case and/or lanyard to keep it safely on your person.
Highly recommend this device.
Four Stars - Long Review 4/5
Hi, folks. I’ve used this app for almost a year, with my 64-Gig SanDisk iXpand drive, used with my iPhone 6s, which runs iOS 12.
It works fine, simple and easy to use. It seems to address every complaint by most reviewers. I was concerned at first, but didn’t need to be. It works well, you can back up some or all at one time. There are several choices. Read the menu! You don’t have to backup a mirror image copy of all your gallery photos, unless you want to.
You should practice backing up one or two files (photos, etc), or look through all the menu items, before making a big backup. It appears that you can back up any files you create. It’s fast, easy and nice.
That said, if you don’t like this app, you can still back up stuff to and from the iXpand drive without it. The app is easier and better than some reviewers say, but a good file manager worked fine for me, too.
I cannot write enough good things about this app. I LOVE this product. I use apps to make videos, and this makes it so easy to upload it onto a USB drive. I stick it straight in a smart tv, and VOILA! Amazing. So easy.
VERY CONCERNED!!! Haven’t plugged drive in yet. 1/5
Are there options immediately apparent so this drive doesn’t hi-jack my media? Is this drive going to rearrange my photos???
I have had this drive for 6 months but an too anxious to plug it in. The 1st review I read had me putting the drive back in the original packaging I finally opened today.
Any feedback would be great.
Slow performance for bulk moves 1/5
The app is progressively slow for moving pictures more then 50. Forget about trying to select 100 or more for a bulk move from a iPhone to the memory stick. I’m using a iPhone 7 Plus with current ios.
It will actually stop working when you try and move many pictures. Only usable by moving pictures in small chunks like 25 at a time. Obviously a defect in the product not mentioned or properly addressed by the developers.
Hope it works... 1/5
By Actual user
Hope this update will make my device work.... It doesn’t work before at all....
Needs massive reprogramming. 2/5
I purchased the drive on its claim to backup and restore photos to/from your device. I don’t need to backup my contacts as they are synched to my desktop machine. I gave up “social spying” I mean medium so I have nothing to backup in that arena. Besides, all my posts came from my Mac, why would I need another backup? (Yes, I use Time Machine too.)
The interface is simple. The introduction, confusing. The workings, mysterious.
Backing up is not considered copying and copying is not considered backing up. Restoring restores the entire backup. No consideration is taken that maybe you only need specific files restored. So if you backed up to the drive, you need that much room plus, in order to restore. I have not found a “Restore missing files” option. Worse, if you have your photos organized by album, you loose that association. They get dumped into your Photo Library, old pictures restored p, in my case, AFTER newer ones. Confusing. For now, the Apple Apps is still a superior mechanism. I just loose the portability of my albums.
To top it off, the program does not alert you to updates on the App Store. Go check!
Excellent tool 5/5
Read the privacy statement. Return the Drive. 1/5
By Screaming Pigeon
To anyone about to install the software I encourage you to read the privacy terms.
I write the rest of this to Western Digital and Sandisk. If you agree with me, copy and paste this into your own review.
Let me get this straight ... after paying you $30 for this flash drive I still have to consent to your mining my Facebook account, contact lists, txt messages, and all other personal data on my iPhone and iPad etc just to use a thumb drive I paid for and you want to sell this stuff to anyone interested interested in “partnering” up with you???
What’s this - if I don’t consent you won’t let me use the drive I just bought?!?
I just deleted a whole slew of text that probably would have gotten my Apple ID account banned from posting reviews ........
Uninstalled!!! ... and I’m returning your ______ thumb drive!
I would really like to find the troll at Western Digital/ Sandisk that thought trapping us after point of purchase and forcing us to either consent to all your data mining or return the item to place of purchase .... and I’d like to insert this thumb drive deeply up his USB port ... I say this assuming they wouldn’t actually enjoy the experience ... but maybe that would be as bad a mistake as my act of buying this in the first place, and I’d just have something else ... ha ha ... on my hands that I’d have to get rid of!!!
I thought I was getting away from this kind of marketing crap when I ditched Facebook Messenger along with Android. I pay extra for Apple products and don’t mind paying developers to make software. I’d buy this app from you to get it without the data mining, but then I’d have to ask myself why this device of yours wasn’t functional when I paid for it the first time.
Come on you creeps. I thought $30 was enough. But, charge 5 or 10 dollars more and stop selling your customers privacy on the open market.
Love this 5/5
This is great. So easy to use. I love it
User friendly. 5/5
By YAY! YAY
Making life simpler
Great for backup storage but... 3/5
You cant skip parts of a song unless you swipe on the line most of the time swiping skips to the next song. Why cant i tap on the line to skip to that part of the song? Also drains battery quickly when not even used. Also constantly asks for permission or ignore when not in use
Very good 5/5
By Al ruiz
This is so easy to use, was unsure what app I would need to use for this product, how much mb/gb ect. App. Not much usage, but product does a lot.
Can be better! 3/5
It’s great but can be better! Needs more options. Here’s a few suggestions. You should be able to upload and play your iTunes movies. Due to copyright restrictions, should make it detect that it’s your movies from your account/device. It needs to be able to let you download and save pdf/files from email or websites directly to the iXpand usb. If Apple lets you save and back up files on a portable hard drive, you should be able to make it the same for this. Then this will be the perfect back up usb storage.
What about music? 4/5
I love it but I can’t seem to transfer my music, which pisses me off?
Crash and burn 1/5
Literally every time i click on a function the app crashes. This flash is basically just a decoration at this point
Works great 5/5
Works great. Very helpful
