Seamlessly add a USB ﬂash drive to your device and make extra room for a multitude of media
As our phones get faster and their screens get bigger they are becoming more and more useful for consuming content. But HD movies are enormous ﬁles and you won’t ﬁt many into the typical storage allowance on most phones. But if your device has USB On-The-Go support you can easily add temporary storage to your device, onto which you can store full-length movies or a larger music collection. You could access documents brought with you from your work computer, or if you add a memory card adapter you could even remove the card from your camera and instantly view, edit and share the photos as soon as you take them. Using the USB OTG Helper app on a rooted device the entire process can become completely seamless too.
