PhotoFast has announced a new version of the i-FlashDriveHD that will allow users to easily transfer content from an iPhone to Android phone, and vice-versa.
Coming in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB flavours, the i-FlashDriveHD uses a free iOS or Android app to transfer the files. Files can be anything from images to video to audio. Also included in the app is Dropbox support, backup and restore, the ability to create and edit playlists, and streaming via AirPlay.
PhotoFast has left out Lightning port support with the gadget and has stuck with the old-school 30-pin connector. You’ll need to use an iPhone 4S or below, or just have a Lightning adapter on your iPhone 5 or iPhone 5S. The kit also comes with a micro-USB-to-USB adapter for porting files into a laptop or desktop.
The i-FlashDriveHD isn’t cheap, costing $170 for the 16GB version, $230 for the 32GB version, and $330 for the 64GB version.
Transferring files between smartphones can be done over internet services, but if you’re looking for some nifty hardware to do the trick, the i-FlashDriveHD may be worth adding to your Christmas list (if it’s here in time). PhotoFast hasn’t provided a release date.
