Customer Reviews

Good for what it is advertised

Just did the app update and for some reason on the thumbnail page you can see all the pictures taken but when you click on a pic and then want to go through the pics by sliding left you are not able to see the pics only some pictures display. Sony, please a little but more elbow and grease if you want to win over photographers.

I like the idea, but many flaws

The one thing that annoys me, or confuses me, about this app is that when I take a picture it automatically saves it to the phone app, but then there's no way to delete it - even if it's deleted on the camera. It takes up my phones storage, so not sure of the solution for this. Please help or fix!!

Need more picture import sizes

I am really frustrated that Sony limits imports to Original, 2mb and VGA. I have Sony A7r ii and I would like to have choices in between the 42mb original size and the 2mb, which is way too small. Why not 20mb or even 12mb. Maybe even different compression levels.
