Sony discontinued the PlayMemories Mobile interface in March 2017. Cameras released after this date such as the Sony a7R III may not be compatible to GoCamera. Please read your camera’s user manual or visit Sony’s support website for further information on device support.

Please note that some devices need to install the ‘Smart Remote Embedded’ service from the camera's built-in app store to enable WiFi connectivity. Please adhere to your camera's manual. Furthermore, being a third party developer, we cannot guarantee device support for all PlayMemories Mobile cameras as Sony can restrict third party usage and change interface settings at its own discretion.

Tries to do too much badly

There is no control over which photos to download where. It tries to take control of downloading and makes a mess. It doesn’t let me delete the photos from the camera after downloading.

I thought because of the 3.2 or whatever the average rating is now that this app might work, and if not I could just get a refund, both FALSE! The app does not let me change ANY setting once connected(it tricks you and connects like its gonna work) at least the free wireless camera control apps let me control one perimeter, I think it’s the aperture, this one doesn’t even do that. And when I tried to get a refund I was told to wait for the apple receipt to be emailed to me, I tried getting a refund 5 mins after the email came in and I got an automated message from apple saying “This purchase is not eligible for a refund” not verbatim but close. Horrible horrible experience, I don’t know how these paid apps are allowed to continue being sold on the App Store with such blatant lies.

Developer Response ,

We are sorry that you are experiencing issues. We recently updated our support section and improved our description on how to connect a Sony camera and on how to improve the WiFi performance of your camera.

Cumbersome Process and App closes

Once I was able to get my RX100 connected, which took forever, the app consistently closed, after each photo. Inside the menu, via smartphone, you’re unable to change any settings for the camera and when you finally snap a photo, the APP closes, asking me to reconnect, which requires several attempts: my WiFi router is 10’ away from my studio. I also reached out to the ‘Help Desk’ twice, to NO avail. EXTREMELY disappointed and a waste of my time. Worst $8 and want a refund.
