Only slightly awkward

It does the job of getting your photos of your SLR onto The Cloud via your mobile quite well, fairly efficiently with only occasional loss of connection that’s easily rectified (though you usually have to start your upload again), & uploads fairly quickly, though it takes over your wifi connection on your mobile, whilst it’s doing it. I don’t use any other features but this one job is really invaluable enabling you to use your photos, eg on social media, in emails & writing stuff, & provides a useful backup (providing you have enough cloud storage, which is something worth shelling out for)!

Fixed for now!

This app can be so frustrating when it comes to connecting, sometimes it works for months at a time without having to do anything, and sometimes it completely breaks down 😂

I’ve used the app for years and it’s just so handy for quickly editing photos on the go, so it’s worth every bit of frustration tbh. Im so glad they seem to have fixed whatever went wrong on the last update 💕

Very sketchy, very patchy

I can’t believe this app gets such good reviews. I’ve used it for years. The Canon instructions online to make the initial connection bear no resemblance to what you actually have to do. Then when trying to connect your camera to the app you are very lucky if you can get a connection to stick first or second time, it is more likely to be third time lucky, but it can easily throw you out or not show your images or not let you download them. It could be simple as clearly the technology is there but for some reason it is mighty complicated. Why for example do you need to confirm that you want to make a connection (to the camera) six times… it seems absurd.
