Reasonable but not great
I use the app with the QX30 lens and as a combination they work well enough but without quite fulfilling their full potential. Plus points are the ease of linking by wifi which worked first time and seems rock solid after about 3 weeks use; reasonably full feature set and a clear UI. Points to improve would be turning off pop ups after first showing, enabling use of volume button to take pictures (if Apple will allow it) and improving response times
However, QX30's killer app would be to enable it and app to work on Apple Watch. That would be genuinely fantastic for both devices
I got it to work!
Ok, so there are loads of steps you need to take to get this working. First, you need to connect your camera to your wi-fi. Next, you need to "send to smartphone" on your camera. Then, you need to look in your wi-fi settings on your iPhone/iPad to find the camera. THEN you open this app up and it will transfer. It's all on the Sony website. I wish the app had the instructions in it!!
GPS tagging features would be appreciated
GPS tagging features would be appreciated. The ideal time to GeoTag Photos and Videos is when uploading photos AND VIDEO's to my iPhone. Either that or let your camera's get GPS data from a phone. GPS tagging is pretty impirtant nowadays with the way apple photos organises and searches photos via location.
Your icon is pig ugly, its time to change it. Sony your so good with design, but this series of icons looked horrid when it first came out, nevermind with the advent of flay design
