Excellent Excellent Excellent app with just one flaw!
I really love this app! Controlling the camera from my iPhone is amazing! And having access to all of the cameras settings from the iPhone is truly groundbreaking!! The possibilities are endless. I also love the fact that I can easily transfer photos from the camera to my iPhone photo library anywhere I am! The way you do that is you turn on your iPhone's personal hotspot and pair the camera to the hotspot. Then launch the app and connect! Easy! This app is simply outstanding! I gave it 4 stars and not 5 because when reviewing photos on the camera from the iPhone you cannot swipe through the photos. Instead, you have to tap to open the photo you want to look at and then you have to close it and then tap on the next photo you want to look at and keep repeating that to browse the photos. Seems like such a giant oversight by the development team. Integrating the ability to browse the photos in the camera from the iPhone by swiping would make this app totally STELLAR!! NOTE TO THE DEVELOPERS: please integrate that functionality into the app in the next update... and please make that update available sooner rather than later. I really want to rate this app 5 stars but cannot do so till that happens.
The good, the bad, the ehh
When I first tried the app after renting a T I loved it. I really enjoyed being able to compose macro shots by using live view on the iPhone. Like the other commenter I thought the gallery could use some work with continuous swiping etc. Now, after my great experience with my rental T I decided to buy one, iPhone liveview being a main influence. Of course as Murphy's law dictates the liveview is not working on any of my devices. The main problem is that there is nowhere to go to address this problem or any other that come up. The app has been out for a year and yet not one update has been issued. That is a sure sign that this is just a one off and that Leica has no interest in improving the app or fixing issues. The app support link takes you to the Leica homepage....uhhh...where do you go from there? Leica show us that you support this cameras new technology and aren't doing the very least amount possible just to say you did it.
It works! Had problems with connecting and dropped signal but all troubles look to be resolved. Cheers Leica!
