Just short of useless...


If the files won't transfer to any of the gazillion apps already on my iPad, what good is it? It lists a bunch of players that I don't have or want because the file management apps I use already have all the players and viewers I need.

This app is suppose to support the HooToo USB external thumb drive. So my expectation is that it works like any other USB thumb drive, except that this thumb drive plugs into a mobile device with the purpose of transferring supported files, from the drive to the iPad local drive in a location I can access either by some import function or a file management/reader app on my iPad using the "Open in...." feature.

The only thing that transfers is images to the built-in iOS Photos app, which I hardly use. I keep wasting more time trying to find workarounds for the file transfer issue than if I'd have run upstairs to my Mac and fired up a browser to do a wifi transfer using GoodReader, Phone Drive, or any of a dozen other apps that have no problem transferring just about any file format that is supported by iOS...pdf, html, rtf, doc, css, mp3, pptx, or whatever.

So, again I ask, what good is a USB file transfer drive if it doesn't even transfer files? And only reads or plays files in reader and player apps that are not on any of my devices, nor do I want to buy them, or have them taking up precious storage space on my devices?

Yup! Just short of useless, by a hair.

Excellent app works great


This app works flawlessly with my 64gb Ravpower drive. I am using it on an iPhone 5s, app loaded fast all backups were fast and smooth. I don't understand the negative reviews I find most are not following instructions or are trying to use the product not as intended. Note this is a backup drive for phone, files and all photos music. Read the manual on the drive music must come from iTunes to replay. You can encrypt the device which is great if lost, note must remove encrypt before plugging into pc. You can transfer to and from device and also auto backup and delete original during backup. So far A++++ product.

Extremely clumsy app, almost useless


So I am trying to transfer some pdf files from my ipad or iphone to the app so that later I can transfer them to the external usb+lightning drive. Does not work. Transfers only work with the drive plugged in (sigh... it does have an internal file system but you can’t share from any app to it even though it goes through the motions).

So plug in the device and transfer? Will it work? Only ONE file will transfer! The rest? No! You have to actually force quit the app between transfers!

This is ridiculous. I am probably thus also returning the associated thumb drive (HooToo 128 GB).
