Welcome to the best kept secret. The secret that the big brands will not tell you about. This simple invention literally transforms your ability to transport and view data. Say hello to USB OTG. Simply meaning On The Go. This is the next generation up from the basic OTG cables that offered mini and standard USB connection via a single device. This invention basically means that you can connect your OTG USB stick straight into your phone and easily access it’s content.

Most Smartphones will allow you to literally plug and play via OTG using one of the Androids file viewing applications. There are many free 3rd party apps that allow you to view the USB OTG files. They are easy to download and install. But that is only if you need one. As said, most android phones support OTG straight out of the box.

The benefits include; accessing data straight from the USB drive, playing movies and music without hosting the files directly on your device. But the big benefit has to be ability to back up all of your photos, video’s, music and other files without the long laborious task of syncing. Cloud storage right in your hand. Not to mention the benefits of transferring large files without email.
 
The battle for cloud storage just heated up and I personally think that USB OTG drives could be a serious consideration for many people. Especially for those who currently invest in or are looking to acquire cloud space. It’s a great alternative.
 
This USB OTG offers a unique single end double connection. Raise the Micro USB connection to plug straight into your smartphone. Then retract the Micro USB and use the standard USB connection to plug straight into your laptop or PC to edit and view it’s content. This product is so simple but so needed. The link on this guide is to a 32GB USB 3.0 OTG.  Priced at £14.99, it offers great value for money on a product that has numerous uses.
