WHAT’S NEW?

HWM (Malaysia) - - LEARN -

On the app, one of the newly-added fea­tures is the abil­ity to back up your con­tact list to the iX­pand Flash Drive. This is use­ful if you’re an iPhone user, and are look­ing to up­grade to a new iPhone, or you have email con­tacts on your iPad that you’d like to trans­fer to a new iPad Pro that you plan on get­ting. If you have pho­tos on so­cial me­dia – namely Face­book, In­sta­gram, and Pi­casa – that you’d like to back up, you have the option to do so as well. This may come in handy if you’re think­ing of switch­ing so­cial me­dia plat­forms – or quit­ting al­to­gether. 140 HWM | JUNE 2016 You can also set it to backup ev­ery­thing you have on your iOS de­vice. This is es­pe­cially use­ful if you’ve opted for the 16GB op­tions. Also new to the re­designed app is a graph­i­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the avail­able stor­age space on both your iOS de­vice and the iX­pand Flash Drive it­self. This lets you know im­me­di­ately at a glance if you need to move files around be­tween the two, or if you need to get rid of some files that you don’t need af­ter all. We’ve men­tioned be­fore that the iX­pand Drive app served as a file ex­plorer for iOS de­vices. It still is, and is a much bet­ter one now, thanks to the re­design. Look­ing for your con­tent are made much eas­ier, and it even comes with its own built-in me­dia player, which lets you play con­tent that are usu­ally un­sup­ported by iOS de­vices. A good ex­am­ple would be FLAC au­dio files. You can also delete files you no longer need directly from here. En­cryp­tion is also turned off by de­fault this time around, but you can al­ways en­able it your­self. If you do that, you’ll have to key in a pass­word ev­ery time a file is moved.
