Macworld Buying Advice
The iFlashDrive from HyperDrive is a useful, although expensive, option for those who lack access to iTunes, Wi-Fi networks and iCloud services or simply want a secure and potentially convenient way to copy, delete and share files from various iOS devices and computers. Sluggish video transfer is an issue, however, for those hoping to watch favourite TV shows and films on the go.
