Ratings and Reviews
Couldn’t figure it out and kept crashing
I couldn’t get it to link via bluetooth, then when I got it to work via WiFi it froze up on one phone, crashed on the other and didn’t save the photos… blah
The lag is ridiculous, maybe 30 seconds and I'm serious. It's unusable.
Crashes if you can even get it connected
Oh well, good idea though!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
