Many people want to buy a new iPhone 5, but they don't really want to overpay a hundred or two dollars for versions of 32 GB or 64 GB. However, you often want to have on your device simultaneously several gigabytes of music, and a couple of movies in excellent quality, and a number of modern games with advanced graphics, and a few more gigabytes in reserve.
Unfortunately, with the youngest version of 16 GB, this is unlikely to be possible … unless you use Kingston 's Wi-Drive. Wi-Drive is a hard drive that stores and distributes information over Wi-Fi without the need to connect to a local network.
Design and Application
The Wi-Drive is made of smooth black plastic with rounded edges and is similar in size to the iPhone 4S. The set comes with a mini USB - USB cable, with which you can charge the device and transfer information to the disc. The duration of the Wi-Drive operation directly depends on the number of users connected to it, which is limited to three units.
You can connect to the device through the MacBook and iMac browser using the IP address of the drive, or through the special Wi-Drive application on iOS. The application uses a fairly simple file system, so you can figure it out without any problems. There is a built-in player that can open pictures, audio and video files. The application works smoothly and even remembers the place at which you finished watching this or that video. The audio player supports skins and keeps playing files even in the background. Finally, the app supports Air Play in conjunction with Apple TV and Airport Express.
The only discovered drawback of the built-in player is that if you stop playing a song and start watching a video, the song will start playing again from the beginning. This is a temporary flaw, which they promise to fix in the near future.
Wi-Drive can be purchased on eBay for $ 78 for a 16 GB version, which is adequate for such a solution with the ability to connect up to three devices to it simultaneously using Wi-Fi. Also, don't forget about the specially designed iOS app that makes Wi-Drive easy to use.
