The Mobi Wi-Fi SD Card by Eye-Fi is a socially-geared consumer product, as it has a built-in Wi-Fi system for sharing photos. It has a sister app on iOS and Android that it links to in order to easily share and save photos as they're taken. Not only that, but the instant transfer means potentially infinite space, despite this particular version being 8GB (16GB and 32GB cards exists as well). Cool features aside, it's time to see how this card stacks up.
What We Liked:
What We Didn't Like:
The Mobi Wi-Fi 8GB is a card that does what it does well. It's incredibly easy to setup with only an app and a 10-digit barrier between you and photo sharing, it transfers photos quickly and painlessly to mobile devices, and still functions as a regular SD card. On the social side, sharing photos to places like Facebook and Twitter or emailing them to friends and family is never more than a few taps away.
However, there are some caveats that will push away the professional crowd. It's disappointing to see that the Mobi doesn't support RAW files, nor does it natively transfer photos your PC via Wi-Fi unless you download a separate PC app from Eye-Fi's website that approximates the functionality of the mobile phone apps. While those features are available in the Eye-Fi Pro X2, the staggering $100 tag will be a brick-wall barrier for most. That being said, this card is fantastic for the casual user who isn't looking to take professional photos, and finds themselves wanting for both space and easy social integration.
