Poor issues, clearly not properly tested


Some really poor issues, clearly not properly tested. If you switch away from the app while it’s transferring photos, it’ll stop the transfer and won’t tell you. It keeps switching the display between the photos on the camera and photos on your phone, so never clear what you’re looking at. Having to connect to a Wi-fi network generated by the camera is silly. Not much choice but to use this app with the camera, not impressed with Panasonic.



I have used this app for the past 2-3 years with various generations of LUMIX G cameras. The remote function is excellent and the lag between camera and iPad/iPhone is negligible something that cannot be said for rival camera systems/apps. Some issues which working in areas with lots of WiFi signals but on the whole very useful and useable. Recommended.

Absolutely useless

This app isn’t even worth being on the App Store. It serves no purpose whatsoever. It doesn’t work at all. I’ve spent hours trying to figure it out which I shouldn’t have to do. When connecting via WiFi it takes forever, then when you finally get a connection it fails a few seconds later. I’m a tech expert so it’s not my device, tried it on several devices and still a load of rubbish. How can a brand like Panasonic issue rubbish like this????
