Reloaded frequently. 2/5
App re-loads every few minutes, which cancels any file selections you might be making. Very frustrating.
Not a friendly app 1/5
Does not allow you to navigate without trying to load all of your photos. Once it starts loading your phone, the X button doesn’t work to exit the process. So slow all around. All I want is a flash drive that works well, wish one existed already!
App is horrible 1/5
Is this app capable of working with photo libraries larger than 100 photos? If so - what is the trick? I select copy from iPad or iPhone and it doesn't even load the pics before it kills a full battery?
Pics 1 3/5

Learning how to work laptop to get pics.
Mid cycle 5/5
There needs to be way to stop the back up when you to and not have to start all over
Keeps on rebooting every 3 seconds 2/5
This was an awesome app and device. Love it. But the app keeps on rebooting now. Constantly every 3 seconds. Getting very irritating. Other than that BIG problem, I love that app. Please fix this ASAP.
Few things 3/5
- Error messages when securing files
- Won’t play .gifs
- No way to rearrange files that are secured
- When a photo is open, the scroll bar at the bottom feels unfinished/unusable
- The drive itself feels poorly made. It doesn’t clip into place and seems very overpriced. Not sure if the added cost is because it has a lightning connector
Glad there’s a way to connect an external drive to my iPhone though. So far this is probably the best option available
Intuitive system to use 5/5
By Hank James
I really enjoy this technology
By Bumpy Mac
Love this! 5/5
I bought this to free up space on my phone AND make sure I did not lose my pictures or contacts if my phone died. Transferring and then deleting files from my devices was really easy. I like that it asks if I want to save or delete files from my devices. Highly recommend!
No stars 1/5
Isn’t compatible with current iPad Pro
Does not work on the iPhone xr 1/5
It doesn't support iPhone XR
It’s always buggy and the app loves to crash and freeze on you. Also can’t transfer files from the stick to the device so it’s useless
Perfect solution for iPad
Constant Crashes 1/5
Second Review - no improvement whatsoever. This is a great idea in theory, but in practice, it sure doesn’t work. If you don’t like being frustrated by technology not working DO NOT use this app. Like I said below in my first review, it works 0% of the time.
Every single time I try to load up the disk on my ipad, it crashes. I have reinstalled the app, etc. But I cannot access my files at all. It works 0% of the time. Very disappointed.

Best way to backup and transfer files from phone to phone or computer!!!
Makes me so happy & works perfect 5/5
Can’t believe this exists but it DOES, and it works FLAWLESSLY!! Alas, I no longer think of my old Android and the ease with which I could move content a round...now I can do it all with my Apple devices!! Yeah!!
‘Look around, Look around, how lucky we are to be alive right now’
And how lucky we are to have an app like this. 😃
I have spent 48 hours allowing the disk to back up basic pictures and contacts and it will not complete. What few contacts did back up show “file format that cannot be opened” when I try to view to see if it worked. Pictures are still not complete and I don’t have that many. It’s a pain in the neck does not appear to be useful for me
New App required 3/5
My Xpand app doesn’t play videos it used to play anymore. It tells me to buy something called Sandisk Top Reel. Why did this suddenly happen?
Works well enough 4/5
This app / drive bridges a huge gap in Apple’s handling of external storage. It works great on my iPhone 8 Plus. But sadly it does not work with the new iPad Pros. Yes, the connector is different. But it would be great if this app was updated to access the drive through a USB C hub or lightning to USB C adapter.
Currently not working 1/5
I’ve had my IXpand now for alittle over 7 months and up until this point it’s worked relatively fine but I’ve noticed over the pass couple of weeks it just stop working. I put it in my iPhone or iPad it’s loads up shows my content I have saved to it but it won’t play any of my videos, it just freezes up and the app closes out not sure what causing this.
Perfect and just as advertised 5/5
I couldn’t understand why I could not download photographs from my iPhone to my computer. So I ordered this little device. Now it is simple. I highly recommend.
It’s so dope 5/5
Turned my iPhone into a functional recording studio stg crazy other producers look at me crazy when I come into sessions with nothing but my phone or iPad
Hate it! 1/5
By 00 of ur biz
Thanks so much for adding topreel. What's your problem? You don't want me to be able to copy a video file and play it without the ixpand inserted? EF off!
This device can be temperamental when transferring files to and from an iPad and or iPhone.
Sometime it won’t transfer .mov files to my iPad Pro and it’s very annoying.
I have 6000+ pictures and videos on an iPhone 6. After several hours it back backed up 1000 and drained my phone’s battery. Better off using iTunes.
Everything is fine but 4/5
Everything is perfect, the hardware the automatic app oppenting really nice except one thing that app UI/UX is awful! You can’t just easily create new folder! And it’s hard to find options! The app is not buggy it’s work very well but it’s UI is even more awful than just simple apple layouts! Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease change it
Works well as promised 5/5
Works quickly and easily
Backs up files 5/5
The only thing the Sandisk does better than back up files is ask you incessantly, mercilessly, to review it!
Play my own music 5/5
I couldn’t have been able to play my own music without it.
Not so great app 1/5
Photo & video - Copy to iPhone means copy to PHOTO app NOT iPhone in same app.
The app show big images. Not great!!
The app shows same photo in PHOTO app which may already backed up in cloud. I disable the access but it will not work. I just buy this idrive to transfer file not a total back up. When i have no access on internet and iTunes in laptop. Good device
I love that I can backup my photos. I just wish how I can move my phonies over to my PC. I have not figured out how to do that.
Awesome product 5/5
I utilize camera a lot for work. This drive is so simple to use for dumping all of my photos for quick access on the fly.
It’s a good flash drive, in theory, but the app used to access the files on it is seriously buggy. The “Arranging content so you don’t have to” sequence is an infuriating issue. I’ve already arranged my files, when I copied them to the flash drive! What do you need to “arrange”? Why does it take forever? Why is there no progress bar so I have an idea of how long it will take, or whether it’s just locked up? Why, after you’ve done it, do my video files link to metadata from the internet that are not actually associated with their content?
In the file manager are stupid pictures of supposedly hip people that take up an enormous amount of space, instead of a clean file management interface that uses the space well.
Structurally, there are other issues. The USB connector end of the drive is exposed, with no protective cap. The Lightning connector end of the drive has a teeny tiny cap, about the size of a pea, making it easy to misplace. When copying large files to the flash drive, it copies quite slowly and heats up a lot. Hoping for a next-generation version of this that addresses at least the ridiculous “Arranging content” nonsense.
Customer service 2/5
Plugged it into my iPhone to download 3000 pictures....plugged in for 6 hours and only 1 photo downloaded, my phone battery started at 100% but after 6 hours was at 7%. Please advise.
Moving photos off I Pad. 4/5
I’m trying to remove 1000’s of pics to free up my I Pad storage. The problem is that my I Pad battery is drained before the task can be completed.
Copying photos and videos 3/5
By photo junkie!
Good thing to have but not every photo and video was copied. Many photos and videos were jumped over even though they were similar formats. So that means I still can't clear them off my devices to create more space because I don't want to loose any. What do I do?
Best external memory and backup for iPhone 5/5
I was looking to copy my photos and videos to my computer but never had time. Ixpand is quick and convenient and affordable. Best product so far!
Great idea 5/5
Make you download a different app to view movies. Then tells you it doesn’t support format. Then I decided to do as stated below: now it seems to work as it should.
Ok yet another step to view my stuff is apparent. I have exit out of everything remove usb then reattach it and now all seems well. Wish they told you step by step how to do this.
What are you waiting for? 5/5
The wait and try again is over with this device. If you like being frustrated transfering photos and clearing data from your I phone, then don't buy this time and space saving gem. Make someone's life less complicated and buy it for them. They will love you for it.

Works good 5/5
Glad to have a Flash Drive that works for my iPhone 8+.
When you have Criminal evidence on your phone is smart to have that evidence backed up.
No worries 5/5
Amazing way of keeping your photos without the worry that you might loose them!
Good app 5/5
This app does come in handy when you need to back up all your files while you are on the go
Quick and easy! 5/5
