Hey, I'm Skylar. A lot of people with that their iPhone had more storage capacity. It's not possible to add more storage physically to the unit and there aren't any devices that will allow you to plug things into the 30 pin connector like a USB drive or something like that. So there are a couple of options that I recommend. Cloud based storage is really handy, so something like Dropbox. And Dropbox is available in the app store if you just go over to app store and search for Dropbox. Dropbox is free and it's super handy. So just tap install or tap free, tap install app and then once you've got it installed you'll open it up and see sign in with a Dropbox account or create a new Dropbox account. Just tap create a new account, type in your email address, create a password and that's literally it. They give you two gigabytes of storage for free. And if you invite people and you get referrals, Dropbox will give you more storage. I have friends who have like 12 or 15 gigabytes. But I'd like to just show you what Dropbox looks like. So here it is. On the left hand side here in the corner it says Dropbox and this is my directory. So I've got folders and some .pdf files. Dropbox is super useful because it will open .pdfs, it'll open waves, it stores photographs, and the handiest part is that it installs in your desktop too so on my Mac I actually have certain folders and we can see them here if I just scroll down a bit. So like plain text, scripts, those are synced to my Mac so if I make a change to that folder on my Mac then I see the change here. So here I go. That's a script that I was working on my Mac and I can actually see it here. Also it stores my one password settings. One password is a really useful application that allows you to access all of your passwords from anywhere to database and it's super handy. I highly recommend it. So Dropbox if you're looking to increase the storage of your phone might be just what the doctor ordered. If you want even more space and you want a local solution check out the Seagate Goflex Satellite. What it is is a hard drive that also creates it's own little wireless network and it has a companion app that allows you to manage content on the drive just with your iPhone, iPad or even an iPod touch. I highly recommend those things. They're not too expensive for what they do, and if you really want to carry around hundreds and hundreds of movies with you wherever you go, probably the most cost effective solution. Thanks for watching. I'm Skylar.
