Well it was easy to install. Can’t speak to durability yet. As for ease of use, I have a problem. The problem is conversion of data into useful information. The hootoo can transfer a video file of up to 4 GB no problem. But no more (unless you want to reformat the hootoo- but then it might not work on a tv, although it will work on a computer). So filming at 60 frames per second in 1080 HD on an iPhone 7+, a minute of video is 90 MB. Ah, the math gives me a headache. I think 4GB is 44 minutes of video. I am a working musician. A job is called a gig. Maybe when I Told them I had a gig I gave them a headache too. It is an interesting world I live in. Anyway, I am still emailing support. Soon, we will be on a first name basis and I will have to bake cookies for them. Support is very nice, though. Back to my situation though, 28 minutes of video transferred very nicely. 59 minutes failed to transfer, as did 1 hour and 59 minutes. I just wanted to know how many minutes of video would transfer seamlessly. I would have read the directions, but there weren’t any. Just plug and install the app and do it. Transferring pictures is easy.

This device is very handy for backing up an iPhone and transferring the files to your PC as one end has a lightning port and the other end has a USB port. The iPlugMate app makes backing up the iPhone it simple. You just insert the device and select what you want to backup. It will backup photos, music, video, contacts. You can back up everything on the phone at once, or individually select what you want to backup. The iPlugMate app stores the files organized in folders or you can go directly to the files by categorized icons. Once your files are stored on this flash drive from your iPhone, you can insert this flash drive's USB end into your PC, and it will transfer the files at fast 3.0 USB speed to your PC if your PC's USB port is 3.0 rated. This device also can save the cost of paying a monthly fee for iCloud. The one that I got, which is the largest one TaoTronics makes for an iphone has 128gb of storage which is more than adequate storage for me. SunValley also stands behind their products 100 percent.

This is my second time buying HooToo 128G iphone flash drive. The first time I bought it for my moms ipad. I have to say this flash drive helps extend your devices storage capacity. It works flawlessly with the app and I had no issues with saving or finding my photos on it. All it takes is a simple plug in to your phone and you ready to save,delete or move documents around.

I wanted to start with familiar territory and plugged the flash drive into my laptop via USB. The user guide/instruction manual is pre-loaded at the top directory.
I reviewed the user guide and it is very straightforward and helpful.

I created a new folder on the flash drive and loaded a sampling of files that I wanted to try out on my ipad:
An MS word document, an MS excel spreadsheet, an adobe PDF, a text file, several songs in several formats, and several pictures and videos in several formats.

.wma, .mp3, .png, .jpg, .wmv, .mov

I removed from laptop and plugged into my ipad via lightning connector. The first time you plug in - a message asks to download the iPlugmate app from the app store.
Once downloaded, I ran the app.

There are 6 icons: photos, videos, music, backup, file/folder, camera

At the bottom is the iPlugmate (external storage) and the ipad (internal storage)

I selected the iPlugmate. It brings up the folders and files on the thumb drive. Select the file option icon at top
left corner - can set file viewing to be a list or by icon.

click on a file to open.

*** music files
the .mp3 sounded great. .wma does not work native on ios as expected, but an app called "oplayer lite" will work.

To transfer you can tap "multiselect" and it will have options at the bottom:

copy to, delete, share, more
The share option has the "copy to oplayer lite" - I played the .wma !!!

*** next
photos - both .png and .jpg work
videos - both .mov and .wmv work. Both looked and sounded amazing.

*** next
MS word - display is very clear
MS excel - allowed display of multiple tabs !!!
adobe PDF - display is very clear
text file - display is very clear

*** the camera icon

If you have filled your ipad or iphone storage, but still want to take pictures or video - here is the way !!!

click on the camera icon and it will ask to allow the iPlugmate access.
Then you take pictures or video and they get saved to the thumb drive, awesome !!!

*** the backup icon

I selected the ipad. I kicked this off and it started running - showing progress by percent.
When it was done - it said complete, total of 220 files ...

I selected contacts. It went fast.

*** now looking at the iPlugmate files
There is a new folder called backup.
It has the contacts and the ipad folders

What a fast, easy way to backup items from your phone.

*** the settings icon
At the main screen, top right corner - tap on the gear icon for settings

cache, language, privacy setting, 3rd party player settings

Customer support is a phone call or email away if the user guide is not enough. This is another quality product from HooToo.

I purchased at a discount in exchange for an honest and thorough review. I always give an honest review regardless of my own purchase or not.
I hope this provides some helpful information and would appreciate the click on Yes !!!

This device worked instantly and exactly as advertised. I cannot understand the negative reviews, possibly "operator error"? In any event, I would highly recommend this drive. The only very, very, minor problem is that, even with the extended tip, the device would not plug in to my phone with the case attached. My primary use is with ipads and occasionally with my iphone. I have no problem puling the cover back at the bottom to insert the device. Please don't listen to these "nay-sayers", I'm no whiz at computer equipment and am an older user (71) and I can even easily use this.

This is the second HooToo external drive i have purchased. Upon receiving this new 128 GB Drive i noticed that this does not allow me to use it with my iPhone case, This one does not come with the Extended connector. Please see comparison pictures of both 64gb (left) 128gb (right).

Updated Review

HooToo reached out to me, explained to me the reasons for the difference in the connector. I would give them a 10 stars if i could in customer care. my original review was a bit on the negative side but that was only because i wanted external storage for my son's videos to be used on long trips. I was a bit concerned that i would have to remove the iPhone case and give an unprotected phone to a toddler. Putting my phone case issues aside. This is the best thing EVER !!! I cannot believe i ever lived with out it. last week, i had to transfer pictures from my old phone to my new phone, doing this thru Icloud was going to take about 24hrs or more. i downloaded the iplugmate app on both phones, plugged in my HooToo flash drive, made a back up of my pictures from the old phone and then simply plugged in to the new phone and transferred all my pictures, with in 5 minutes i was done.

Easy to use. App install and all. Not too heavy, not too lite. Amazed at quality

Amazing, great for expanding memory for iPad. Requires a one time "iplugmate" Hoo Too software app, then it becomes plug in play. Once you install the app it seamlessly organizes items by photo,videos (this is where my movies,tv shows,home videos are stored) ,music,backup, file/folder, camera. I love being able carry more photos,movies while I travel and documents of reservations, emergency contacts, address book etc. Has a cover for lightening end, and could hang from a keychain. If I carried secure data, I would likely not put on my keychain for fear ring breaking or losing keys. Considering buying another or for gifts. This brand is Apple certified and works flawlessly.

When I travel, I hate to bring along my notebook if I don't have to. I usually try to work form my phone or tablet. What makes this HooToo iPhone Flash Drive USB 3.0 Key so awesome is I can easily load content onto the drive from my phone for use on the computer, and vice versa. Makes printing documents in the business center a breeze and storing more than my phone or pad can with it's limit fixed space.

The cap can easily cover the Lightning end when not and use, keeping it protected. I like that the ring both secures the cover so I don't lose it, and can attach to my key for easy and quick use on the go. Overall, love the transfer speeds, but i'm mostly working with doc's and pdf's. I can easily use this to expand the storage space on an as needed basis for my phone and pad.

Overall, great compact size, and transfer speeds. Easy to tag along wherever I go.

[Review Sample Provided For Review And Evaluation]

This is an AWESOME idea - solved a long time problem I've had with having an iPhone.

I just want to pull my photos off the device quickly and drag and drop them to my computer. Don't want them imported into iPhoto or anywhere else.

This is great to simply back up stuff and move it over.

Works with multiple iPhones - backs up to different locations on device.

Backs up just the delta.

One odd thing: It may not get all the files if you are low on space on the device - this seems odd, but as a developer, it makes sense. They need to copy off the photo/video, and to do that you tell the OS to make a copy for you in your space - which you can then open and export to the device. But if the file is 1.5GB, you need 1.5GB free to make the copy, before moving that copy to the device.

Great thing is, you move off some of your files, get enough space and then move the big file you couldn't get before.

I have two phones backed up with this device, and now instead of having 0-1GB (on a really good day) free on my phone, I have 19GB free! (64GB model)

And you can also shoot video/photos directly on to the device!

It has an option to remove everything once it has backed up, but I wish it would give me a screen that listed what it backed up and let you decide what to remove. I never want to wipe out all my photos on my iPhone, and I've never tried a backup of just one photo with the option to delete turned on. Afraid to try it.

Also, it pops up a message after back up that says: "WARNING" backed up 10 files successfully, and 0 files failed.

Why is that a warning? It made sense the first time when it said it didn't backup some of the files.

Oh, this also handles backing up some files and then stopping it and recharging the phone, and then starting over (from where it left off) and completing the backup.
