Add MicroSD card to your Android device

Android manufacturers are now following the footsteps of Apple and removing expandable storage option from their devices.Popular devices like the Nexus series (Nexus 4,5,7) and the recently launched Motorola Moto G all lack the MicroSD card slot.
Heavy users tend to run out of fixed memory within a few days and need more storage for their Android smartphones/tablets.Well,now you can have it !!
Thanks to a kickstarter project,a company called meenova has launched an external card reader which lets you use MicroSD card on your Android tablets and smartphones.
The concept is simple,its like an SD/MicroSD card reader that you often use on your PC, except this one comes with a MicroUSB connector to plug into smartphones & tablets with MicroUSB port. Use it to play video/music on a MicroSD card. View photos/documents, copy and backup any and all of your files. Just like what you can do on a PC.
The card reader is available in 4 different colors,you will get a key chain connector and a MicroUSB to USB converter which will help you to use it with a PC.Attach this coin-size card reader to your keyring and take it anywhere you go. Never run out of storage space again.
the device is compatible with a majority of popular devices.However,root access and third party apps are required for Nexus 5.After the recent 174.44.1 build and 176.44.1 build of Android 4.4 (which re-enable USB-OTG) update,Moto G can use this reader without root access.
For a complete list of compatible devices check here.

The card reader supports  MicroSD, MicroSDHC, MicroSDXC up to 64GB  and costs $12 with $3 international shipping. Meenova is offering a 1 year limited warranty with the device.
