Default [Q] Things to do with an OTG cable

Just recently purchased an OTG cable and know the simple things like connecting a mouse, keyboard or thumb drive. But wanted to see what others are doing with them.

What do you use yours for?

That's really nifty I'll have to test it out at work.

Anything other uses for OTG cables ?

External usb mouse, a keyboard, any usb stick or hard drive/card reader...but the killer app for me pairs the note with my Canon DSLR...

Check DSLR Contoller (Beta) in the Play Store

Has anyone tried connecting two phones together with the OTG? Can you just share their storage, or what happens?
