    Does anyone know of any external storage for the ipad 2.i bought the ipad mainly as a photo viewer but it's soon becoming full, I don't want anything wifi etc just something simple to plug in the bottom so I can view more photos on a external drive. I have the camera kit so maybe an app or something?

    Oh my there are loads of options here, AirStash, iUSBport, NAS Drives, etc, etc......these are generally wifi so no need to plug anything in.

    I have the CloudFTP (now called iUSBport) which allows me to connect any USB storage (I've connected a 500GB WD passport using this) and access media on it. I also have a WD Live, which is a NAS Drive, in my case a 1TB capacity drive, it's plugged into my home router and I can access it from the sofa a couple of feet away of from the other side of the world!

    If any of this is of interest we can point you in the direction of the relevant threads here on the forums!

    Unfortunately that is about the only thing in terms of external storage I can't help with, good luck, hopefully someone else will be able to assist.

    Id have a look at iFlashdrive. It should do what you want. Im looking into it myself for my needs as well.

    Remember these wifi devices have their own wifi hotspot no need to have a full wifi network to connect
