We realize you only have so much space on your iOS devices. When using InstantReplay on your iPad or iPhone, you may run out of storage space after several uses. We realize this video footage is valuable to you and we wanted to give you an easy way to transfer this content off of your device, to your computer, for safe keeping and future use. This way, you can free up space on your iPad or iPhone for continued InstantReplay usage.
