    Anyone using one of these for playing from or extra storage of music or video on their iPhone/iPad/Mac?
    Some comments on the web saying it doesn't work on iOS8 and later.

    I have the 128 GB version and it works quite well. It is very useful to transfer PowerPoint files which I use on my iPad to the drive and then plug it into a PC. Works as described. You can also stream movies directly off the drive without downloading to the iphone or iPad

    I'm very pleased with the 128GB model I've been using since it's release. Reasonably fast, fun and effective in a wide variety of scenarios, I find it essential for my needs.

    A terrific smartphone accessory that continues to support my preferred practice of keeping certain private files out of the cloud, safely stored locally on my NAS Server, and this wireless memory stick.

    Now that there are dual connector lightning/USB drives out there, I would go with those over anything wireless. I say that having used both.

    Can you play music files (mp3, Flac etc) on an iPhone on iOS9 from a USB type stick with a lightning connector or is that dependant on the iOS app?

    Depends on the app. A wireless drive connects via WiFi and acts as a normal wireless storage unit, meaning it's generally compatible with any app that can connect to a network drive using that protocol. A wired drive on the other hand uses a proprietary interface over lightning that requires that device's specific app to work, and so that app needs to support whatever you need. Assuming of course you don't transfer out of app and into onboard memory (e.g. have a video library and transfer only what you need at a time).
