    If it's just extra storage you're after there are lots of options.

    Dropbox and Google Drive spring immediately to mind. I use both for various things.

    I'm not a huge fan of card based or wired solutions.

    Hi Nick appreciate that but touring Europe (and even the UK) internet access is not always an option.

    Fair point.

    Am I reading it correctly that the thing in your link is basically a flash drive with a lightning connector?

    If so I quite like that idea. It's going to have massively quicker read and write speeds you would get with an SD card. Of course you can already get SD card readers but I like the idea of a directly connectible flash drive.(y)

    That's the way I read it Nick, we just need other manufacturers to join in and prices to come down.

    A great idea (y)
    I specifically chose my iPhone 6 with 64gb and so far despite many hundreds of pictures I still have 37gb free but I'm not so far a big keeper of music
    Nice to see such devices are an option now :cool:

    £37.99 for 32 gig isn't bad at all.

    You'd pay more than that for a decent quality fast SD card.

    Play music and videos directly from the drive.

    JumpDrive C20i not only makes it easy to offload and transfer files, but it also allows you to listen to your favorite songs and watch videos right from the drive.

    I am not a fan of Cloud storage...

    I don't want to pay anyone to look after my stuff... I'd rather do it myself.

    JJ :cool:

    Hi

    We have a Verbatim Media Wireless unit, £24 from Amazon This is charged via USB. The Unit is connected too by a PC or Tablet wirelessly. You can then attach Sim cards or Hardrives to the Unit which you then are able to access on your PC or Tablet. Whilst you are connected wirelessly to the unit you can browse the Internet as the Unit can be onward connected to a wireless source for the internet.

    You can connect up to 5 Tablets etc and play different films or Photos at the same time from the attached hardrive or SD card.

    If you rely on Icloud etc you need local Wifi availability which this does not.

    Doug

    Google automatically save my photos, I do back up too but I wouldn't turn off the free storage.
