Forensics in terms of smartphones is bit more complex due to wide array of devices that have flooded the market in the last decade.

Forensically, this is an amazing tool to be able to talk to SD card but not leave a large footprint on the device itself. Instead it works more fluidly and the analyst can kind of play a game of operation, by pulling out the select items they request. Mobile device forensics has become the next big thing but its great that there are communities built with opensource and sharing mindsets to help debunk the mysteries of mobile device forensics. Considering there are some many devices out there and so many different physical containers/machinery, its great to see tools tackle this issue.

Considering most people take their phones with them almost everywhere, the potential for espionage and financial damage is very serious. However, the user can prevent some mobile device attacks by simply being cautious about what they download. Some install apps without reading the permissions cautiously. A lot of attacks on mobile devices recently have been due to users installing specific apps via unofficial streams, specifically jailbreaking.
