Leef iAccess review: A little white hook full of infinite iOS storage possibilities

J.R. Bookwalter | Dec. 9, 2015
A hook-shaped plastic dongle that plugs into the Lightning port of an iOS device to provide expandable storage from microSD cards.

Once attached, iAccess prompts the user to open or install MobileMemory, presenting four different options: Transfer Files, Content Viewer, iBridge Camera, and Settings. The first is used for transferring photos and videos to and from your device library, along with a file manager for sharing content with compatible apps.

Content Viewer is used to view photos, music, movies, or documents, although it proved inconsistent with device videos—they usually show up under photos as well. iBridge Camera takes photos or videos directly onto the microSD card, quite handy for beleaguered 16GB iPhone owners.

All in all, I found iAccess affordable and very handy. I liked being able to swap out microSD cards as needed, rather than being locked into a fixed capacity like other products, and the design is unique for this kind of product.

Bottom line

Leef iAccess is a convenient way to expand the storage capacity of your iOS device—but it’s so tiny and easy to lose, you’ll wish there was a way to attach it to your keychain.
