Software and Usage
We first spent a short time accessing the MobileLite Wireless with an Apple iPad and as of right now this is the very device it is best geared for. With Apple products, you can have access to all the features of the MobileLite. We were able to easily connect to it using it in hotspot and Internet modes.
You can either see the content as a complete list or by icons. Pressing the different media icons, you could see the files under one icon representation which would be images, music or video.
With Apple products, we were able to retrieve data from the MobileLite as well as send data to it.
When it came down to using an Android device, we notice the layout doesn’t look as nice as it did on the Apple device. Unfortunately, this is the case for many applications. We needed to spend more time with the unit using our ASUS tablet and HTC phone so this is the reason for having more images.
Under settings you have access to a ‘General’ tab which states device name, battery charge and firmware. Under ‘Connection’ we see the device is visible to everyone on the network, channel and security level. Lastly, we have ‘Network Connection’ which lists all the wireless connections in range.
Arrangement of the data can be viewed altogether or individually under three categories: images, music and video.
In our last image we see that you have the option to move data. The ways of doing so is by email and move/copy function or you can simply delete the data. When it comes to moving data, it’s only between the MobileLite and the wireless device you are using.
When it came down to transferring data to the MobileLite from our tablet, we were not successful. This was not the case with the Apple version. Kingston has stated that in upcoming revisions to the app, this will change as there are just too many Android devices to test and program for. So, this can be a hit or miss for you.
