USB 3.0 thumb drive with PC-to-iOS support will soon be available on Indiegogo

If you’re looking for a painless way to transfer files between iOS devices, or even from a PC to your iPhone, look no further. Online Mac accessory retailer HYPER has updated their accessory lineup with the iShowFast – an external storage thumb drive that comes with both USB 3.0 port, and an Apple Lightning connector.

Available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB storage size options, the iShowFast has a read speed of 140MB/s write speed of 45MB/s on the USB 3.0 end. Its Apple Lightning connecter side can go up to 30MB/s (read) and 20MB/s (write). The device is built to Apple-certified standards – it is compatible with iPods, iPhone, and iPads, including the iPad Pro.

As with conventional thumb drives, the iShowFast does not require charging, and it’s an offline alternative to file transfers via cloud storage, far away from prying hackers who can compromise data stored on cloud storage services. For added protection, the iShowFast comes with password protection too.

The iShowFast is almost ready for sale – come 12 October 2015 (Monday), the HYPER team will green-light the Indiegogo page for early bird buyers. The first shipment should reach the campaign backers by November 2015, and an early bird iShowFast (16GB) should set you back by US (~S). The regular price of the same product would be US (~S4) – this would be the case when the crowd-funding campaign ends, or when the early bird offers are gone.
