Hello,

I ordered one when it came out via KickStarter.  Seems to work okay.

I also backed and received one from the Kickstarter promotion.

Can give a double (Y) to this device.

 

Small. Cheap. Effective.

Definitely worth getting one (if you need one!)

My phone has a slot for memory cards, what's the point in this?

If you need more storage on top of your internal/micro SD storage :p

I don't want something ruining the sleekness of my phone thank you.  But I see how this could be useful for some poeple. In my case, I can just swap in and swap out memory card.

I was thinking that as well, and another thought I came up with was transferring information from one person's card on to your own card. Although obviously depending on the size and number of files there could be easier ways of doing that.
