This review is from: Kingston Technology 64GB Portable Storage Wi-Drive (Accessory)
As usual, an excellent Amazon dispatch and delivery experience.
I opened the box, charged the wi-drive for a while then loaded some files onto it via the PC. Disconnected the wi-drive from the PC turned it on and then connected my iPad and iPhone to it; straight forward and worked first time. I then set up a bridge to enable access to the internet at the same time as the wi-drive; once again, no problems.
I then made a mistake of updating the firmware on the wi-drive! Although I could still connect to it via my iPad, my iPhone had a problem with the wi-drive app reporting that it could not access the drive even though the phone showed it as being connected. Much head scratching and several minutes later, I decided to renew the lease of the wi-drive wifi connection on my iPhone and it worked again!
As others have reported, the file types that wi-drive app supports is quite limited; I will play with some other apps in due course but for the moment the drive and the app meet my needs. I have only rated this 4 stars due to the limited file formats that are supported and the small connectivity problem that I experienced after updating the firmware.
Having used the Wi-Drive for a few days, I have discovered the battery life is somewhat lacking. At best I can get 2 hours out of it when just connecting to one IOS device; for this reason I have reduced my score to 3 stars
