ShutterSnitch is subscription based.
For $2.99 a month you get access to all features and updates. The first week is *free* so you can verify that things work with your specific camera or wi-fi card.
Subscription payments are charged through your iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase and are auto-renewed. Renewal can be turned off 24 hours before the end of the current period in your Account Settings in the App Store. Privacy Policy:

Wirelessly transfer images to your iPad from your Eye-Fi, Transcend Wi-Fi, Toshiba FlashAir, PQI Air, or ez Share card, GoPro HERO, Fujifilm cameras with built-in Wi-Fi, PTP/IP enabled device (such as the Nikon WU or Canon EOS 5D Mark IV / 6D / 70D / M3) or a Canon, Nikon or other filetransmitter that supports uploading to an FTP server over your wireless network.
When a JPEG arrives, ShutterSnitch analyzes shutter speed, aperture, ISO, focal length, and light level and warns you if anything differs from the rules you've set up.

You now have a large preview screen that you can browse, pinch, zoom, and evaluate seconds after snapping your picture.

In a studio environment it's now easy to share shoots with crew and models. More fun and less juggling cards, adapters, and cables!

Please note: A large part of the magic of the wireless delivery lies in the setup of the devices outside of the ShutterSnitch app. For older FTP systems, be prepared to spend more than just a couple of minutes on this initial setup.


• Works with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices running iOS 9 or higher.
• Full Retina & Retina HD display support.
• Crop, straighten, and adjust colors (temperature & tint, exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, whites, blacks, clarity, vibrance, and saturation). All edits are non-destructive, so you can always fine-tune or revert to the original photo.
• Advanced metadata editing.
• Slideshow function with Ken Burns effect.
• Arrange your shoots in albums.
• Lock private albums.
• Resize and/or watermark photos before sharing them via e-mail, Dropbox, Flickr, FTP, Google Drive, SmugMug, WebDAV, or Zenfolio.
• Large scale histograms (RGB,R,G,B).
• Visible and/or audible warnings.
• Map integration. Geo-tag JPEG photos automatically or manually.
• Highlight warnings.
• Add a caption and byline to the photos by tapping and holding the currently displayed full image.
• Custom username, password, and port for the built-in FTP and WebDAV servers.
• Receive files directly from one or more Eye-Fi cards.
• Receive photos from your GoPro HERO, Transcend Wi-Fi, Toshiba FlashAir, PQI Air, or ez Share card/adapter as you shoot them or import files from the card manually. *Note for GoPro cameras in burst or time-laps mode*: Photos can only be retrieved once the camera exits the mode.
• Supports receiving and importing photos via PTP/IP. For example from Nikon WU transmitters and Canon EOS 5D Mark IV / 6D / 70D / M3.
• Supports receiving photos from Panasonic cameras that work with their LUMIX LINK app such as the GH3 and GH4. (Not the "Image App", so DMC-G7 is not supported.)
• Supports Sony A7 and NEX cameras.
• Supports Fujifilm cameras with built-in Wi-Fi such as X100T, X-M1, and X-T2.
• Supports Canon PowerShot G16 and other Canon cameras that work with their CameraWindow app.
• AirDrop export.
• Bonjour support for easy discovery in your Bonjour enabled applications. This also works the other way - when you want to export images to an FTP server, this is automatically detected (if the server is Bonjour enabled). This makes it incredibly easy to transfer images between your iPad and you iPhone for example.

ShutterSnitch can also be used as a regular image browser if you simply transfer the pictures from your computer through an FTP client.

Please note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

What's New

Version 4.3.5

• The 'Download only protected files' PTP/IP setting now also works with Nikon cameras introduced after 2015. (Tested on D500, D850, D7500. It also works with JPEGs on D750, you just need to make sure you shoot both NEF+JPEG or else the camera won't trigger the send.)
• Added a 'Share' button option to Limited Mode.
• Bug fixes.

Was great but no longer buy standalone features


Great app - not sure about the subscription model at the moment. Time will tell what killer features are in the pipeline.

Set up in under five minutes!


My iPad arrives Friday and I wanted something with a better interface than the EyeFi app for my photography. Despite the reviews indicating that set-up was difficult, I installed the app, entered a password, followed the simple instructions, entered my EyeFi password, excited the app, deleted the EyeFi app and re-opened this app… and it worked first time!
This does not have a 'direct' mode so you do need a wi-fi network. When out and about and for this set up as described, I used a '3' Huawei E586 MiFi unit which works as a wi-fi hotspot in your pocket when connected to '3', but also as a (not internet connected) wi-fi network when out of 3g range - it was not in range when I did the set up. I did NOT have to mess with this unit other than turn it on, the EyeFi (8Gb Pro X2) card simply found the network. I presume the iPad installation will be similarly simple - I will add a comment if this is not the case...
Having transferred a few pics, I have set it to tell me when the ISO is high (this stops me going through a day accidentally firing shots at ISO 4000 as I managed recently!) and also for highlight warnings. The export options look adequate but I've not tested them yet.
In short, for a fiver, I'm happy! 'Cherryshots'

Makes the iPad really useful for me in photography


I use this in commercial photography with a Nikon, eye-fi card and iPad. My setup is a Nikon d300s with a CF card and an Eye-fi card. Camera set to write Raw to the CF card and small JPG to the eye-fi card.

This allows me to capture an image in the studio, copy a small jpeg to the iPad by wifi and allow my customer to see the image on a 9" screen for review within seconds.

There is a star rating system within this product that allows you to tag images and select just those tagged for export (although this version does not write that star rate into the IPTC/Exif data yet - developer is on the case).

When done I use the ftp option to transfer the star rated jpg's to my MacBook Pro to a directory where I also load all of the RAW files from the CF, so I end up with selected JPG's and all RAW files. I then load into Aperture just those raw files where there is a related jpg. This then allows me to use Shuttersnitch on the iPad as an immediate review tool and allows me to integrate iPad, Shuttersnitch and Aperture into a useful workflow.

I also use the software running on my iPhone to do exactly the same thing when I am out and about (using a MiFi device to create a mobile wireless network)

Great product, responsive developer who really understands what a photographer needs
