Rated 4 out of 5 by Momoma So far I'm satisfied!
Purchased SanDisk Wireless Stick Flashdrive and, after charging it for 2 hrs,turning it on, and adding the app on my iPhone 6, I started to load my photos from my phone onto the flasdrive. I had no trouble connecting to the drive in my wifi setting.I was able to very easily organize my photos into albums on the drive.
So far I've loaded about 100 photos and several videos. It did seem to take long for the larger video files and did end up canceling some of those downloads.
Just to test to see if able to add them to my HP Laptop, I inserted the drive into my laptop and they were able to go into my photo program (something I could not do when I connected my phone to laptop). Since my iCloud storage is full and I refuse to pay more money to increase storage, this is a plus!
And just to check if I could add some photos back onto my phone after deleting them, I tried a few and it worked!
The true test will be just continuing to add photos to the flashdrive since some reviews state it was giving warning signals it was full way before it should have been.
Rated 1 out of 5 by betinil Great Concept, Poor Delivery
This is a great concept - and I really wanted it to work. Maybe I just got a lemon, but I didn't want to chance that the same thing would happen the second time.
I downloaded the app to my phone, plugged the stick into the computer, and the phone immediately connected with the stick because the ID code for the stick popped up on the phone within seconds.. However, when I went to transfer files (about a dozen pictures), no matter how hard I tried, it wouldn't transfer them. It indicated a low battery on the stick.. It was plugged in to charge for several hours but it never charged at all. I tried several times to make the transfer after charging for a considerable amount of time, and it always gave me the same message. Certainly after that amount of time it should have had enough power to make the transfer. I checked directions to make sure I was doing it correctly, and that definitely wasn't the problem.
Sad because I really wanted this to work for me! I use Sandisk products a lot and have generally been pleased with them, but this was really a dud! Back it went.

I contacted San Disk and You need to have enough free cache memory on the iPhone equivalent or close to the capacity of the files which you wish to transfer to the Wireless device. As the files get transferred to the cache memory and then to the Wireless Stick.
I needed to be able to get the photos off because I am low on storage.
I will need to find another way to get the photos.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Back up issues Back up issues
The concept is great. However, I received the drive a week ago and I have not been able to back my photos up after 10 try's. The connection instructions were easy to follow. But my photos will not back up from my phone. I will be contacting Sandusky today before I return the product.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Suekathy Never Figured It Out - Returned It
The IT Teck at Verizon couldn't even figure this out. How could an average person have any idea how to install this item? There are no directions that come with the product. The on-line manual is useless. I would have rated it "no star" but that wasn't an option.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Misty1979 Worked Great!
I received my ScanDisk and set it up yesterday. And WOW! I followed the directions I printed from the PDF on the stick, downloaded the app and backed up my droid II. It worked so fast and is wireless! Our wireless connection can be iffy but it worked great and fast! It backed up over 300 pics in less than 10min. I'm so happy to have instant back up for my phone! Next, backing up my contacts!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by TLC_ Only can be used on IOS 8.0 and above.
I really wanted this to work for me as I have so many pics/videos on my IPAD 3. I wish the presentation would have stated that you must have IOS 8.0 and above in order for you to be able to download the app. This was the only reason I returned it and the reason for 1 point off.
I'm sure it will work for all those of you who are 8.0 and above.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Howey Hubby loves it!
I bought one for each for us. We were both able to download the app and move all of our pictures from our phones and I pad. It's easy to forget just how any pictures you have. So why 4 stars instead of 5? You have to allow the app to access your data for your friends from your devices. I know that's a standard for apps, but I really hate giving away that information as I don't know what they use the data for. Still, it's nice to have all my pictures backed up. It does allow you to delete the pictures after they are transferred giving you back more space. I know this will be cheaper in the future, but at our age, time will tell. I think most people would benefit having this.
