SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK) announced the SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive. It’s the company’s first USB Flash Drive made specifically for the iPhone and iPad. Rajesh Gupta, Country Manager – India & SAARC, SanDisk said, “With a significant increase in mobile-generated content, consumers are looking for easy ways to manage it all. We created the iXpand Flash Drive to offer consumers a quick and safe way to move their favorite content between devices so it’s available when and where they want it.”
The iXpand Flash Drive is a simpleto- use solution that quickly and conveniently transfers photos and videos from an iPhone or iPad to a Mac or PC — all without cables, internet connections or bandwidth limitations. It also maintains the original photo or video resolution quality.
The flash drive is designed in such a way that a user need not remove its protective cover before usage. A metal exterior adds to the durability of the flash drive.
The full-featured iXpand sync app opens up when the iXpand Flash Drive is plugged into an iPhone or iPad. It can be configured to automatically sync photos and videos from the camera roll to the drive. Favourite movies can be stored on this flash drive and they can be played directly from the drive on the iPhone or iPad. Movie formats such as AVI & WMV are supported. This helps in saving time and avoiding conversion of video formats.

It is compatible with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad mini running iOS 8 or iOS 7.
