APP to download photos & videos to an SD card

by GalebeBrazil / December 4, 2017 10:52 AM PST

Hello, I have to download photos & videos to an SD card thru a cable and a SD reader. I can't use a computer for this ... traveling to a complicated territory. So, I got iPhone, SD cards, apple cable and apple sd reader.

Apps run on computers and with a computer you can't run the app. So maybe you are leaving out a detail?

I did a Google search for a solution but
by mrmacfixit Forum moderator / December 4, 2017 5:16 PM PST

while there were a few that claimed to do the job, ALL of them required the use of a computer.

A possible solution would be the Dropbox app, plus an account, but that would require internet access for the iPhone to connect to the Dropbox site.

Failing that your options are severely limited with the iOS system.

Perhaps a tablet of another brand would be a route which you would rather not take. Tablets that download to an SD cart are easy to find

iOS users usually use these as media consumption machines.

Only recently has Apple begun to see iOS as a creation machine. Apple's initial iOS hid file systems for about a decade.

No SC slot on iPhone 6

Why not pick up a cheap TracFone that can do both pics and video and HAS an SD slot?

Or can you take along a Pi3 ? It's small computer weighs about 12 ounces and can use any HDMI enabled TV for viewing, has a couple USB slots, does bluetooth, and about the size of a pack of cigarettes. You'd need a small mouse and compact keyboard though too. They do have a 7" Pi3 monitor, about size of a tablet, which the Pi3 can be attached too, and it's touch screen, so can avoid mouse and keyboard need. Small bluetooth keyboard-mouse combo.
