Wirelessly transfer images to your iPad from your Eye-Fi, Transcend Wi-Fi, Toshiba FlashAir, PQI Air, or ez Share card, GoPro HERO, Fujifilm cameras with built-in Wi-Fi, PTP/IP enabled device (such as the Nikon WU or Canon EOS 5D Mark IV / 6D / 70D / M3) or a Canon, Nikon or other filetransmitter that supports uploading to an FTP server over your wireless network.
When a JPEG arrives, ShutterSnitch analyzes shutter speed, aperture, ISO, focal length, and light level and warns you if anything differs from the rules you've set up.

You now have a large preview screen that you can browse, pinch, zoom, and evaluate seconds after snapping your picture.

In a studio environment it's now easy to share shoots with crew and models. More fun and less juggling cards, adapters, and cables!

Please note: A large part of the magic of the wireless delivery lies in the setup of the devices outside of the ShutterSnitch app. For older FTP systems, be prepared to spend more than just a couple of minutes on this initial setup. Due to the finicky nature of network setups, it can take anything from minutes to hours to get up and running. Feel free to visit the support forum for help!

• Receive photos from your GoPro HERO, Transcend Wi-Fi, Toshiba FlashAir, PQI Air, or ez Share card/adapter as you shoot them or import files from the card manually. *Note for GoPro cameras in burst or time-laps mode*: Photos can only be retrieved once the camera exits the mode.
• Supports receiving and importing photos via PTP/IP. For example from Nikon WU transmitters and Canon EOS 5D Mark IV / 6D / 70D / M3.
• Supports receiving photos from Panasonic cameras that work with their LUMIX LINK app such as the GH3 and GH4. (Not the "Image App", so DMC-G7 is not supported.)
• Supports Sony A7 and NEX cameras.
• Supports Fujifilm cameras with built-in Wi-Fi such as X100T, X-M1, and X-T2.
• Supports Canon PowerShot G16 and other Canon cameras that work with their CameraWindow app.
• AirDrop export.
• Bonjour support for easy discovery in your Bonjour enabled applications. This also works the other way - when you want to export images to an FTP server, this is automatically detected (if the server is Bonjour enabled). This makes it incredibly easy to transfer images between your iPad and you iPhone for example.

ShutterSnitch can also be used as a regular image browser if you simply transfer the pictures from your computer through an FTP client.

Please note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

A superb app for receiving and viewing images from an Eye-Fi card!


I've been using Shuttersnitch for the past 5 or 6 months, starting back when I had only an underpowered iPod Touch (gen2). That old iPod was quite short on memory and CPU power and was really not well-suited for using this app (in fact trying to use Shuttersnitch with "underpowered" devices might explain why a few reviewers complain of crashes). Currently I'm using Shuttersnitch with my iPad 2, and the app has become a pleasure to use. Smooth operation and not a single crash after transferring many, many images.

I've set up my Eye-Fi card to transfer (to Shuttersnitch ) via a Verizon Mi-Fi card (portable wifi hotspot requiring no internet use) and I've also successfully been doing transfers with Eye-Fi's new "Direct Mode". Both methods give reasonably fast transfers (4 to 6 seconds/image)--even for my camera's fullsize RAW or jpeg files (10 Mpixels). Then, just a quick double-click produces a full (100% scale) display which allows me to critically evaluate sharpness as well as exposure and composition. Lots of export options. The Shuttersnitch interface is well-designed and the developer is extremely responsive to suggestions and bug reports. I can't understand the reviewers who claim otherwise--or any who claim the app doesn't do just what it says it will do. Eye-Fi does have a free iOS app that receives wireless transfers, but IMHO, that "free" app is far, far behind Shuttersnitch's capabilities.

Should have a way to test transfer capability for free


TL;DR: Apple's Lightning SD Card Reader always "just works". Full review: Bought an Eye-Fi X2 card to use with my Olympus OMD-EM5 (which has explicit support for the Eye-Fi, including on-screen icons for connection status/transferring). PhotoSnitch was supposed to be "the perfect way" to transfer pictures from various events directly to my iPad. I got the X2 card configured to use the wifi network, but never got ShutterSnitch to transfer more than one picture at a time, and even then just getting ONE was really flakey: I kept getting "Timed Out" messages after it transferred 90% of an image. Getting it to work again after that was an exercise in futility. I made sure all the sharing options in the Eye-Fi Center were disabled, that the Eye-Fi "helper" wasn't running in the menu bar on my Mac, that I wasn't shooting in raw mode, etc. I even reduced the JPEG quality from Fine to Normal to reduce the image size/transfer time. All to no avail. I found a custom URL from the ShutterSnitch forums to increase the timeout length. Nothing worked. All in all, just a frustrating, disappointing experience and waste of money on one of the more expensive iOS apps I've purchased. I would've much preferred a free app that would've allowed me to verify that transfers worked reliably, with an in-app purchase to unlock full functionality.

Great app to view previews


I use this app on the iPad with a Canon 5Dmk2 and WFT-E4 wireless transmitter. It works great for previewing images as you shoot. Just hand the client your ipad and they will love it. It's a complicated setup but it works beautifully on the studio WiFi or on location with a portable router. Again, I use this as a VIEWER. I shoot in raw but only send small jpegs to the ipad. I do not tone or process any images in this program. Most of the complaints seem to be from people expecting to process 50 meg images on their iPads. Maybe in a pinch, I can see working up a couple 4-5 meg images but its unrealistic to expect the ipad to handle super large files. You can't really trust color profiles on the iPad anyway.

My only complaint is Photo Snitch has a tendency to drop off your network when it encounters a stronger WiFi signal. This may be an iPad thing. So you have to stop what your are doing, open up System Prefs and rejoin your network. I wish PhotoSnitch had an option for joining networks built into the menu. Maybe an option to ignore all networks beyond your own while the program is running. Add that option and I will give it 5 stars.
