I recently noticed that you used (and liked) this extra drive.  I have one (128) and the instructions say to download the app (U-Hub) before using.  I have an android phone (S22) and cannot find that app on the play store.  I also use an iPad and laptop.  

Can you please tell me which app I should download onto the android?  Also, do you have an episode explaining the uses of the HooToo?  OR, can I not use this drive with my android?


Thank you for everything you both do to help the community.

Yes, I do have that drive, and I have the U-Hub app installed on my Samsung that makes it work.

That particular drive with the Hoo Too brand is not made anymore. And, I notice that the app is no longer on the Play Store, or the Apple App store. 

As I recall, when first plugging in the device to the phone, it popped up a message with a link to click for getting the app. Have you tried that? 

If that doesn’t work for you, then try using the Files app that comes with the Android phone. It should be able to read the flash drive.
