Losing data can be more than just a hassle. Backing up data isn’t the quickest thing to do and now all of your old cherished photos and videos gone, memories erased and you feel like there’s nothing you can do about it. Well, there is something you could have done about it and it definitely beats doing the old-school data backup. That something is called the Photostick Mobile and now they have Photostick mobile for Android and iOS. And this is why I'm writing this new Photostick Mobile Review!
The Photostick Mobile for Android and iPhone.
You may have heard about Photo stick for computer, but now you can also get Photostick mobile for Android and Photo stick mobile for iPhone and iPad. What this nifty little device and handy tool does, is basically makes your life easier when it comes to backing up your valuable photos and videos. Like in other reviews, I will go into detail the capabilities of this device in this photostick mobile review.
Instead of connecting your mobile phone into your laptop or computer, and then manually backing up all of your phone’s photos and videos into a folder and all that, thePhotostick mobile streamlines all of that tedious process for you.
Features of ThePhotostick Mobile
The Photostick mobile for android and Photo stick mobile for iPhone itself, is a small USB Flash Drive (thumb drive) device that has a USB port (for computers) on one end, and either a micro-usb (for Androids) or a lightning port (for iPhones) on the other. This is different from the computer only version, where it only has a USB port and no ports for a mobile device.
A great feature use is that even if you don’t necessarily want or need to back up your media files on your phone, you can still use the Photostick Mobile as a quick and easy to way store your photos and videos. So, if you’re not looking for a dedicated back up device for your phones, at least you’re getting a small portable storage device for your mobiles. Who can say no to extra storage space when it’s so easy to run out of space?
Let’s explore further in this Photostick mobile review.
How does Photostick mobile work?
Photostick mobile for Android and Photostick mobile for iPhone work much like their computer/laptop counterpart; photo stick for computer. The device itself almost works like a “plug in and play” device, with the only extra step added is downloading their mobile app off the app store.
So, the traditional way of backing up your data on your mobile probably consists of something such as: Going into each folder on your mobile device. Finding the files that you want backed up and saved. Then manually selecting each one you want, before copying or moving it into the dedicated back up folder or external storage device.
Doing all of that is already tedious on a computer, so imagine what it would be like doing that on a mobile device. You probably don’t even need to imagine, you’ve done it before and understand how much of a painful process it can be, especially if you have hundreds of even thousands of photos and videos.
That’s the beautiful thing about the Photostick mobile for Android and Photostick mobile for iPhone. You simply plug it into your phone and then hit the “Back up files” button on the free app that you downloaded from the App Store (For IOS) or from Google Play (For Androids).
That’s literally all there is to it. The Photostick mobile will then go through your phone for all photos and videos and then back it up into device, helping to free up space and back up your previous memories. An Easy peasy lemon squeezy use of Photo stick mobile for iPhone.
Media Formats and Compatibility
You may have run into this issue in the past, where when trying to transfer certain files between your phone and someplace else, you get compatibility issues. Video files that played on your phone, are having trouble playing on your computer or something along those lines, right?
That’s another great thing about Photostick mobile (this includes both android and photo stick mobile for iPhone), the handy device is compatible with the all of the popular media file formats: JPEG, PNG, JPG, MP3 as well as others. Some versions of the Photo stick Mobile are even able to support a whole list more.
Offline and Cloud?
You may have looked into getting a subscription for a cloud storage service or even already have a subscription. Cloud storage definitely has it’s uses, but when doing back ups to cloud, you are still having to do the back up manually, which as we all know is a tedious process. The other requirement with cloud services is that you need an online working internet connection, that is also stable and fast enough to be able to upload your photos and videos.
All of the Photostick products (Photo stick for computer, Photostick mobile for Android, Photostick mobile for iPhone) operate completely offline. Since it’s a simply plug and play flash drive for iPhone or iPad, no internet is required when you want to back up your uploaded photos and videos. So long as you have the required app downloaded (this part would have needed an internet connection) then you are good to go!
