With smart phones and tablets, just about everyone is a photographer now! Gone are the days of needing to remember your camera before heading out. Instead, you have a camera at the ready at all times. And so, we are taking tons of photos! Like millions. BILLIONS. (Really – something like 50 million photos are added to Instagram each day). Between being a millennial, a blogger, a travel enthusiast, and a mom…suffice it to say that I take A LOT of photos. Sometimes thousands a week. And sometimes parting with those photos is no easy task. Some would say I’m a bit of a photo hoarder… Yep…that is almost 10,000 photos on my phone with 150 videos. Digital hoarding, much? I’d say. Memory storage issues, much?! Um…pretty much, yes! If you fall into any one of the mom/grandma/blogger/traveler/memory keeper categories, chances are there may have been a time where you went to use your smart phone’s camera and you could NOT. You got the dreaded message that your storage is FULL. Ugh!!!! That just recently happened to me…at Disneyland…during a parade. Double ugh! So, having a small, portable, easy way to backup those photos is really helpful – and that’s where the SanDisk iXpand comes in!The SanDisk iXpand is a small, portable flash drive giving you an easy way to store and transfer photos between iPads, PCs and Mac computers. I got the 128 GB version – that’s a lot of space for such a little device (the iXpand also comes in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB* versions. And…keep reading for a SWEET deal on the 64GB version below!) It plugs into your phone (even with a case on). I have an Otterbox case (on the the bulkiest around) and I was still able to use it!
I think having this device as part of your photo gear is a REALLY smart way to go. You don’t need a cord or access to your computer right away. You don’t need WiFi going. You just need your phone, this flash drive, and the App! Super convenient for those times when you’re out or traveling and need to free up some memory space. Even if memory space isn’t an issue, this is just another great way to back-up those precious photos. I have heard SO many horror stories about having phones dropped in water or broken, hard drives crashing, etc and people losing thousands of photos because they hadn’t backed them up anywhere. EEK! SanDisk iXpand solves that with just a little device and the App (which is available for download in iTunes). I found the App very easy to use and in just a couple minutes out of the box, my SanDish iXpand had already backed up hundreds of my almost 10,000 photos. You can delete photos within the app, sort them, download them to your phone (if you’re doing photo transferring/sharing). Super easy to use!!!
*And, now I have a super special deal to share – $50 off coupon for the SanDisk iXpand 64GB! That’s a GREAT amount of memory storage place for all your photos and videos!
