Transferring files between an iPhone and iPad is easy. If you’re running iOS 7 on both devices you can use the AirDrop feature. Transferring files from an Apple device to a PC (and vice versa) is trickier though, and often involves emailing them, or using a cloud drive.

iStick is a clever solution that functions as a USB flash drive, but comes with a Lightning connector on the opposite end, allowing it to be used with iPhones, iPads and iPod touches. As well as transferring files between devices, you can play music or watch movies directly from the iStick.

The flash drive measures 51.6 x 28.6 x 9.1mm, and is offered in various colors and storage capacities -- 8GB/16GB/32GB/64GB/128GB. You can choose from ABS plastic and aluminum, or all aluminum. It’s USB 2.0 only at the moment unfortunately (the creators say implementing USB 3.0 would involve redesigning the drive).

iStick is currently available on Kickstarter where a $79 pledge will net you an 8GB plastic model (Facebook or Tweet about it and you’ll get a free upgrade to the all-aluminum version). That might seem a little expensive, but the full retail price will be $129, so it’s actually a $50 saving. Free shipping to the US is included -- international purchasers will need to add $10. Obviously higher pledges will get you a larger capacity drive -- $299 for a 128GB model, for example ($100 off the retail price).

There’s clearly a huge demand for a USB flash drive with Lightning integration because the creators were seeking $100,000 in funding and have already received pledges of $309,000, with 34 days still to go. Most Early Bird Specials (offering iSticks for a discounted rate) have already been snapped up.
