Meenova - Mini MicroSD Card Reader!

I had a surprise in the mail today! I wasn't expecting this to be in this quickly! Andy at Meenova sent me 2 of their units to review!

Let's get right to it. Meenova is a Mini MicroSD Card Reader that you simply plugin to your Android device MicroSD port. Depending on the size of the MicroSD this could greatly increase your storage capacity. Who said you couldn't forget about CloudStorage?

You may actually be wondering what is the real use you can make out of this, right? I'm thinking of using it to carry a bulk of movies and shows I want to watch while I'm working. Most of us have internet at work but we do have monitoring and policies and restrictions in place which prevents us from streaming. This will enable me to throw a bunch of them on it and just watch them one after the other.

I'll be making use of this mostly on the train, the plain and the bus. Seriously! WiFi isn't always reliable on the train or the bus and let's forget about the plane.

I'll even be able to carry around some utilities I need on a regular basis and or have client files on hand ready for when I need them. It will make it easier to execute scripts in powershell. Seeing that this can be used on your smartphone or your computer it combines the use for both worlds.


I'll be able to just throw my USB sticks back in their bag and carry this around for the phone, tablet and PC. Great deal if you ask me.

The following card type are supported, MicroSD, MicroSDHC and MicroSDXC. With the USB adapter you can connect this device to your computer as well, turning it into a USB thumb drive on the go.

I know that some of you are going to get excited over this but Google Nexus 4 doesn't support USB-OTG, it is NOT compatible. On the other end of this it works with Nexus 5 (third-party software required or device being rooted).

To answer some questions further, it is NOT required to be rooted and the following list of devices is known to work:
