Scam !

App connect, but does not download files larger than 500MB(sometime even lesser sizes at times), keeps crashing.

Can someone please return my money back.

It needs a huge update.

Disregard the comment made by the other user. The app does work. I’ll provide instructions then give you my review.

1 - enable wifi in Yi camera settings (this also applies to all action cameras all the way to Yi 4k+ camera)

2 - connect to the Yi camera wifi on your mac. You will have to enter a password. the default password is 1234567890. I recommend that you change it in the iphone app for obvious safety reasons.

3 - launch the Control for Xiaomi Yi app

4 - connect to camera and you’re done.


1 - the app is very expensive.

2 - it needs a huge update due to lags. By lag I mean once you take a picture or start recording a video, the live stream freazes. It takes some work to get it back to stream. Very inconvenient.

3 - no option to change the download location. When you want to download media from the camera to your mac, it stores it in a very complicated location. you have to enable view hidden files in order to get to the downlauded media. Again, very inconvenient.

If this was a free app, the rating would be different. However, for such a price, it should be nothing short of very good. if you can bare with those inconveniences, you can get the job done with this app.
