Great but don’t update your phone!
I’ve had this instax printer since 2015 and even with all the phones I’ve had (Samsung and Apple) I was always able to connect to the printer. Today I updated my phone to the newest iOS version 13.0 and lo and behold I can’t connect to my printer. I have exhausted all of the options to connect it and I simply can’t 😑. This app and printer are great if you have older phones and not the latest and greatest. Luckily for me, this app still connects to my iPad mini 2 that is still on iOS 12.1.4 which is nice but idk if I’ll ever be able to connect this printer to my phone if the developers don’t update it often. I’ve had this printer for so long that it’s become a habit to document my life through the instax photos, but maybe I should look for alternative options if this is going to be an ongoing issue. I pray that this app gets a makeover and makes it easy for us loyal users to keep using it.
Developer Response ,
From "instax SHARE development team"
Thank you for your feedback. We apologize you any inconvenience.
For those using iOS newer than 13.0, to connect to the printer, the authority to "Location" is required.
Since the handling of "Location" authority settings on the iOS13 has changed, some customers happened to meet the trouble.
Click "Real Time Template" at App screen, and select "Allow While Using the App."
If this dialogue is not indicated, please go to iOS "Setting" menu and App item. Then select "While using the app" at "Location" menu.
Please check the following URL for detail information.
If you can't solve it, please inform us about the trouble you have, in detail.
Your detail information will help us to analyze and solve it.
We appreciate your cooperation.
We are glad to hear you enjoying with our instax photo.
Back to 5 stars!
Edit: I have since updated my phone to iOS 13.1.2 and it finally works! I tried to print more pictures again today and now my phone connects to my SP-2! I was able to print out the pictures on my phone without any issues. I read another review on here and she said to allow the app to access your location via the real time template on the app. I tried to do it, but was unable to since I was already connected to the printer. However, even without it selected the connection went through and my instax printed everything perfectly. Glad I took some time tonight to give it another chance! For those who had issues before try this method out!
I am so sad that this app no longer works with iOS 13! I just upgraded to the iPhone 11 Pro and with iOS 13 already automatically installed I had NO idea that this app would not work. I tried many times to restart the printer and my phone with no success. However, I tried it on my boyfriend’s phone who still has iOS 12 running and it was able to detect the printer perfectly. I am not sure what I will do once his phone updates... please find a way to make this compatible with the newest iOS. I love using this app to print from my instax SHARE SP-2 and I have no idea when or if this app ever will be updated... the last update was 7 months ago.
Good hardware, TERRIBLE software
A nice little printer (in theory), hampered by an absolute DISASTER of an iOS app. Truly abysmal software. Connecting from my phone to the printer is slow and unreliable. Printing from Instagram is an exercise of intense frustration, since the app will NOT let you queue multiple pictures for print. You end up having to: a) connect to your WiFi to let the app SLOWLY access your Instagram feed, b) select a picture, c) find your usual template since the app cannot be bothered remembering the last template you used, d) disconnect from your WiFi so you can connect to the Printer, which takes forever and does not always work, and finally e) print the picture. Now REPEAT THIS ALL OVER if you dare printing another photo, since you have to reconnect to WiFi to access your Instagram feed once again, thus losing the connection to the printer. It will boggle your mind. Nothing is cached and usability is a joke throughout. After printing a few photos the app just simply refused to access my Instagram account and would display a "Data could not be acquired" error message instead -- no amount of restarting the app or my iPhone would fix that. So so bad, and the app is never improved, you will read one star reviews on the app store that are one year old or more.
