Let down completely

After a long summer waiting for a cool new product to make it’s way into the market I am let down completely after recovering the camera in the mail and subsequently downloading this app yesterday. The app has no instructions, disconnects from the camera as soon as you try to view photos, use your phone as a viewfinder, or do basically anything that has to do with the two devices communicating. Hopefully an update that is SO DESPERATELY NEEDED will be released soon so myself, and the hundreds of others that backed this project from the start can enjoy the product we saw a reason for and took a chance on.

After previously using canon camera and the apps that correlated with them I was eager to try out this new easily handheld camera with a seemingly user friendly and functioning app. Unfortunately after downloading the app it became clear that it was not user friendly, after tinkering with it for a bit I was able to connect my camera, or so I thought. Although the camera “connects” every time I go to try and access the photos (which is the whole point of this app) my device attempts to and then fails as each time the device disconnects. It is extremely frustrating because one of the main appeals to this device was the app, hopefully they will improve upon this

Not good

I turned on the camera, downloaded the app connected the camera to my phone / the all and it looked like it was going to be a really cool and exciting buy. I was able to see the video live on my phone and it seemed to just need the micro SD to start working.

Then I installed the micro SD. The camera has trouble connecting with an micro Sd inserted, strange. I then tried a different micro sd, still problems.

I opened the app and it automatically installed some kind I’d update.

Then when I finally got the shutter to work and pairing mode on, of course, the device wouldn’t connect to the app any more.

The app doesn’t work correctly, the IVY camera itself has trouble connecting when there is an SD card inside of it.

I don’t know if this is a refurbished product, if the app is busted or both but at this point frustrating buy.

Hoping to call canon customer service and want to see what they can do for me.
