Wireless; easy to use


Three-user limit

Up to $200 (32GB)


Sharing files between iOS and Mac users isn’t as easy as it should be, but the Kingston Wi-Drive makes it a snap – for three users at a time. Set up was very easy and supports secure Wi-Fi connectivity. Once the Wi-Drive is powered on – it runs off a battery that’s charged via the USB port on your Mac – it creates a wireless LAN. You can then use the free iOS app to connect to the device.

One thing we found annoying was that even though we could connect a Mac to its wireless network, we could not transfer files to it this way; computer connections are by USB.

While the Wi-Drive is connected via USB it can’t be accessed from iOS devices.

Macworld Australia’s buying advice.
The Wi-Drive comes in 16GB and 32GB versions and makes accessing extra memory for iOS devices easy.
