Is it me, or did this Christmas sneak up on you, too? I swear, yesterday was Halloween. Capt and I have been furiously texting back and forth on what to get the family, and it occurred to me that a few of these might be really handy for YOU, too. So, here’s a two post run down of some of the items I was able to review this year that I think would make awesome last minute gifts. Best part? Still available to reach you before Christmas.
I was provided with this super-cool iPhotoFlash from The Hoffman Agency to try out and review. Thank you!
Last Minute Gifts #1: PhotoFast MAX 32gb
Seriously awesome. Easy stocking stuffer. If you have limited storage on your iPhone, this is fantastic. It has a lightning connector on one side, USB on the other. I recently changed to a new computer, and using this drive, I was able to quickly and painlessly transfer the files I needed from one computer to the new one. In this scenario, the drive worked exactly like a USB key.
For using with your iPhone or iPad, there is an app needed, available for free from the App Store. The great thing about this little device is simply how many formats it can support, including music, photos, video, zip, Drive, Dropbox, and iCloud, It can also back up your photos, Dropbox, Facebook albums, Tumblr, and Drive. We have 16 gig iPhones. Girl Child loves to take videos and burst selfies. (Typical Gen-Z, I guess) and she is able to take photos off her phone to the PhotoMax to keep from filling up her iPhone’s storage. Recently, at one of Girl Child’s vocal performances, we were able to take a video, transfer it to the PhotoFast, delete it off the phone to make room for more. Another very cool feature I like is the ability to load music onto your iPhotoFlash, connect it to your iPhone or iPad, and then play it without hogging up space.
