techBUZZ: Gigastone Flash Drive




I have been wanting an easy way to back up my photos from my iPhone and this neat little device does the trick!


TOP FEATURE: PORTABLE - It's very small and can be carried virtually anywhere - even in your pocket if desired.

TOP FEATURE: PROTECTED CONNECTOR - And, thanks to the hinged protective caps for both the lighting connector and the USB, you don't have to worry about damage or debris.


I have a little over 3500 photos on my phone, and it took about 30 minutes for them to be backed up to the Gigastone. It also devoured my battery during that time. My power level went from 76% to 1%, at which point I had to cancel the backup, remove the Gigastone and plug into a power source. However, resuming the backup was super easy after my phone was charged again. It picked right up where it left off.


The Gigastone requires apps to work - but finding and downloading them is easy because the device has a pop up message regarding the apps and a handy link that opens the Apps Store. The apps do not cost extra.


The Gigastone is a fantastic little backup drive in a super small package. If you're looking for a quick way to backup your iOS device data/photos/movies/music or you're just looking for a way to gain extra storage space for an iOS device, the Gigastone is something that you should consider buying.
