When I first saw the Meenova on Kickstarter, the project was still generically called “Mini MicroSD Reader” but it had already obliterated its funding goal, and for good reason. This small unit was designed to be plugged into the MicroUSB port of any Android device with USB On-The-Go support, to allow it to read MicroSD cards. It’s an easy and minimal solution for devices with limited storage and no MicroSD slot.

To say that I had been previously reticent about paying cash for products that weren’t manufactured yet, let alone reviewed, is an understatement. But Meenova was the turning point in my crowdfunding journey, simply because it was too awesome not to pledge for, and too cheap at $12. After all, if the project failed, I wasn’t losing a fortune.

But thankfully, the project did not fail and my Meenova made its way onto my hands last week. Does it stand up to the hype and expectations, and should you preorder yours? Read on to find out.

When the Nexus 7 was released, everyone highlighted all of its superior qualities but there was one negative which seemed to spring up everywhere – the lack of external storage. With only one input for micro-USB and no SD card slot, we were limited to whatever size we decided to buy. Personally, I went with the now-discontinued 8GB model, so I have about 6GB to fit everything I want — roughly three films could stop me from downloading anything else. But even the 16GB version can filled quite quickly.

So, as the Android community normally does, they found a way to bypass this problem. This fix comes in the form of Nexus Media Importer, an app that allows you to easily transfer or play files from an external storage device. Read on to find out how useful it can be.
