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.

Combined with Nikon WU1a it is useless


I use this app with the Nikon WU-1a and Nikon 7100 and it is extremely disappointing.
The wireless adapter is expensive and I expected something that would work efficiently. In reality the combination is so slow to transfer photos that it is useless. I have tried to take photos and again the delay and very slow refresh rate make it unusable. You cannot change any camera settings once the adapter is connected. The app freezes regularly, the connection is continuously lost and you need to leave the app to re-establish. You also loose wifi connection to anything else whilst connected to the camera. I don't know if the app works better with built in wifi. It with the Nikon WU-1a it is hopeless.

Super little app


Allows you to wifi your iPhone or iPad to your wifi enabled Nikon camera, view and selectively upload pics from the camera to your device. You can also control the camera from your device and take pics.

I works fine. I would give it 5 stars but when selecting pics to upload you have to select them one by one since the 'select all' function does not seem to work. Makes the selection process a bit tedious. Otherwise excellent.
