Ratings and Reviews
I found it really hard and frustrating to connect my new Canon Powershot SX530HS to my iPhone 6 but persevering did it in the end and the wireless photo transfer does work. I'm sure this app could be better written, without users having to access the new app, which reviewers report is not effective.
Simple but effective
Successfully viewed and transferred photos from my new G16 onto iPad. Navigating the camera manual, screens on camera and getting set up on the computer network is the hard part. It helps if you open App before operating the camera.
At least this one works...
This app does the job even though it really is very basic. As other reviewers point out Canon has released a new app and suggesting users to change but the new app doesn't connect. Really bad job :(
