We live in a generation where point and shoot cameras are almost non existent and there is no way I am going to lug a DSL camera with me. I honestly can't remember the last time I took mine with me ANYWHERE - including a vacation. I take all of my pictures with my iPhone. I recently got the iPhone 6+ and I have to say it is a total game changer for me. Not only as a blogger but also as a Mom. My pictures are better quality and I honestly now have no desire to carry a camera along with me when we are on the go.
I use my iPhone camera for every picture I take (even for the blog). Now that I am strictly using my iPhone camera I find that I am constantly trying to transfer pictures and delete off of my camera roll. ACK! The most annoying problem for me is trying to figure out how to how to transfer, backup and share content. Did you know that 71% of all digital images today are captured on mobile devices. Are you in the same boat as me?
Mobile users are still struggling with how to transfer content between devices for safe storage or free up space on their phones for more photos, videos, and other files. A survey SanDisk conducted among 1,000 active smartphone users emphasized the magnitude of this matter - transferring content is extremely or very important to 82% of users – and within this group, 67% of users are frustrated with their content transfer experience, reporting issues ranging from slow transfer speed to file size limitations and compatibility issues between devices.
They found that of those surveyed, 88% reported that they resort to e-mailing or texting content to themselves because its less frustrating. A strange system that I use is uploading my pictures to Facebook and then saving those to my computer. It is a HUGE pain and I feel that as a result I am not taking the next step to actually get them printed. This is a clunky user experience which, due to the compression required to transmit large files, also degrades the quality of their memories. Cloud storage isn’t a silver bullet for the mainstream because of its many limitations including: Wi-Fi availability, data plan fees, and slow transfer rates which is particularly painful for large files and videos. I am so excited to share the iXpand Flash Drive with you because it is true game changer for me!
