Hi,

I got an Photo Fast external lighting/usb storage device for my iphone which requires the Photo fast One/HD app. I have never heard of this Chinese company and wanted to see if there are any security threats as it was asking for access to contacts etc.

Thanks.

If this is the correct app, I would advise against using it until you've read all of the reviews. Some users report crashes and others report loss of data.

Thanks. I didn't think to hit all versions. I got two of their LIGHTING/USB storage flash drives for iphone as a gift and wanted to see if they were any good. I am shooting RAW photos and using Adobe Lightroom mobile to edit. I wanted to offload some of these RAW files to the attached drive but I guess I will pass on this. I just saw they make Lexar software so wasn't sure whether they were trustworthy.

I take a lot of pictures too, but I use the Documents 5 app, by Riddle, to offload my pics to a separate folder in my iCloud Drive storage.
