Probably the Worst App Ever Written
It’s beyond me how such a piece of garbage was allowed out. I mean, how hard can it be to connect iPad to camera?
Well, for Canon the answer is very hard thanks to an utterly illogical sequence of inputs. And one would think that, once you have managed to connect (no idea how; it just sort of happened), connecting the next time would be easy. But no, of course not. This is Canon, after all. Anyway, the camera’s SSID appears on the iPad - 10 points - but then you’re asked for a password. Somewhere in the chaotic process passwords had appeared but they changed with every attempt (they looked like OTPs). , no matter how hard I tried I could not find the thing nor could I reconnect.
So I gave up, put my Bose headphones on - instant connection - and listened to music instead.
I’ve used this app for awhile now and it’s been great, I’ve been able to download my photos from my camera to my phone and as a young, learning photographer it’s really helped me show my photos to people. However, ever since I have got my new phone the app doesn’t seem to want to connect my camera to my phone and so I can’t get my photos, I work as a photographer at my youth group so I really need to get them onto my phone in order to send them to my youth after the night ends and because it now won’t connect I’m unable to. This really needs to be fixed because I have tried everything and still nothing.
Works but could be better
The app generally works however one feature missing which I would love to see added is the ability to enable the Bluetooth remote feature to accept a trigger from a Bluetooth selfie stick. Really simple. Just accept the volume up input to trigger the Bluetooth remote function.
I have a selfie stick with Bluetooth built in which I use with my Samsung camera and phones. Works great but the Bluetooth feature on my camera is useless other than to get GPS fix or use my phone for remote.
