Need a save for later button


This is a good app for reminding you of features to try that are included in you model of camera. I feel it could have the ability to “save for later” or “add to favourites” for the tutorials so that you can refer back to them at a later date or even a “download a pdf version” so you can have it to hand offline maybe? Or am I missing something?
Other than that I think it’s a nice app.

Thanks for your review, we are glad you enjoy the app! Most of the content on the app is available offline, so if you have issues accessing it, please send us more details on Besides that, we are working on improving the Favourites functionality, so stay tuned!



This App seems amazing! But there is one problem to it. Let me explain:

I have just revived the Powershot Sx430 Is and I can’t use the app, the app is only tailored to very popular canon cameras. Its tailored to the EOS cameras, the “D” Cameras, and the Powershot G, cameras. Which means, all the Powershot SX, users can not use this app. Which annoys me since I am beginner, I wanted to learn new tricks and tips to my camera and to do all things this app would let me do and learn. Please Canon FIX THIS. I think you Seoul’s benefit from it majorly!

Developer Response

Thanks for your feedback. We are sorry your product is not currently supported. If your camera is not a DSLR or Mirrorless, we suggest you choose M100 for now so that you can still enjoy what the App has to offer.
