Soooooo close

It’s a bit tricky to get my phone to charge with the case on, even with a super thin case. But I’m working with that. To get 5 starts, PLEASE make the photos work with the share sheet. I have used all of the iXpand products, and each one before this allows you to share photos without ever having to download them to the camera roll. With this app, the only option is to restore to the camera roll, or delete. If you update the software to share photos from the share sheet, you’ll get 5 stars from me!

Partially functional…

Even though this wireless charger appears to be marketed as an Apple specific product, it works better and faster on android. The iPhone app will randomly decide to back up without you being able to initiate a back up. The Android version will instantly back up the phone and quickly. Maybe this is because android has looser restrictions. The app on iPhone always is checking your location whenever it could simply deactivated through a wireless charging session and being connected to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi… I know they explained the location privacy and have a disclaimer that it doesn’t track you but I’m sure it’s fine. You need the permission activated for it to work. I know there are settings to save battery capacity and prevent overcharging but my iPhone XS Max only works with the charger for a minute or two then disconnects regardless of the battery status. My iPhone X and Galaxy S8 work as it’s intended. Even my iPad can wireless backup its photos and videos besides wirelessly charging…To anybody who purchased this I recommend you do not secure your charger photos with a password if it’s just going to be you using it. If you lose that password, you will lose access to all of your photos forever. The reason there’s a passcode on the charger is because you would want to protect your files if it was shared between multiple people or you think somebody would be malicious enough to take the charger and plug it into a computer to access the files. Unless that’s the case I would not turn on the password in case you forget it. I love the charger but it’s unfortunate I can’t use it with my main phone now and it only works with my order devices I primarily use as a camera. It’s fun to have access to all of my smart phone photos through plugging the ixpand charger into my computer. Much easier than syncing phones to a Mac which doesn’t always work well. The name of this product is ironic because once again the android software and experience is so much better but at least it matches my iMac‘s keyboard and Magic Mouse, plus matches all of my other white wires. For aesthetic reasons it’s nice but it’s probably more Apple‘s fault than SanDisk but it would be nice to have another update if it’s possible to fix some of my complaints. Also I’m curious if the charger can be accessed wirelessly through SanDisk since the files are stored on a device with Wi-Fi… I’m not sure but reading the privacy policy does not seem to mention anything like that. Despite all of this I’d still recommend the charger for those who may be interested.
