ZDNet Video Review: CloudFTP is a surrogate USB port for your iDevice

A video review of one of my favorite Kickstarter projects: CloudFTP.

By Jason D. O’Grady

I ordered a 64GB iPad because I tend to need all the space that I can get. But a new accessory that allows me to use external USB storage devices (flash and USB hard drives) with USB-less gadgets like the iPad is making me think twice. CloudFTP ($99) acts as a surrogate USB port for your iDevice.

I’ve posted a video review of the CloudFTP appliance. It’s a pocket-sized adapter that can turn any USB storage device into a wireless file server, sharing files with Wi-Fi-enabled devices (iPad, iPhone, computer etc.). It can also automatically connect to the Internet to backup and synchronize your USB data with popular online Cloud storage services like iCloud, DropBox and Box.net).
