Did a decent enough job but app not for permanent storage.
I connected my iPhone 5s to the camera's wifi and saw my photos without any issues. I selected from the app which photos to transfer. My photos were 34mb RAW files on the camera. It brings them into the iPhone as 875 KB screen optimised versions. These will also be fine for a full screen version on the Mac photos app to change with one of the filters. This app is not for storing original files at their original size. You will need to use the memory card and a laptop if you plan to use say Lightroom CC to edit your originals. It's great however if you wish to post a quick photo to say Facebook and Instagram and definitely a nice feature to have over my previous D300. I have not tested other features of the app to comment.
Does the job it sets out to do
It allows me to download pics from my D5300 to an iPad, and take pics using the iPad as a remote. The latter will probably be a little used gimmick - would have been good to activate video remotely, but I think there may be regulations against that.
It took a little bit of reading and experimentation, mainly to get a connection going. After that downloading pics is fine, although I didn't try to do it in bulk.
For some reason, the app didn't appear when I searched the App Store - I needed to click on a website link.
Anyway I have it now and it's ok. If you're struggling there's a 25 page manual available if you click on 'help'
Some will probably say that this App does exactly what it claims and allows reduced-size images to be downloaded to iOS products for use with social media.
My own need is to back-up a Nikon SLR camera until I get access to a PC to download images for permanent storage.
When downloading single images it bizarrely offers the option of 'original size' - leading to a long-winded process if you have a lot of photos. Batches of images can be downloaded but only at reduced size.
This is the wrong way round if you want to store all images and post selected ones to social media.
I haven't tested the Live View camera connection that allows it to be used to control picture taking. It could be useful but I've not been tempted so far.
In use, the App is far from intuitive and is quite 'clunky' to use. It seems to have been cobbled together without any thought for the potential user.
If you have a serious need for wireless transfer then investment in an EyeFi card might be a better option. EyeFi support is included in several Nikon cameras - check your user manual or the camera Setup Menu.
