Nice, as far as it goes, but...
...it would be MUCH better if it included all reference manuals and user guides, including for every Nikon product, past and present. How about lenses, for example?
Honestly, I simply downloaded all the manuals I could find for products I own from the Nikon Web site into the “Books” app which came loaded onto my iPad and iPhone, with no restrictions. Then I created a “collection” within the app for all my Nikon manuals, copied them into that location, and now I can access them anywhere with my Apple portable devices with just a few clicks. The Nikon app needs a lot of work to get up to a standard comparable to most other Nikon products.e
Meanwhile, I just don’t need the Nikon app. With a bit of effort to track down the manuals for the products I owned, the “Books” app I already had give me a convenient way to view the manuals.
I had downloaded this app after purchasing the D5600. Going through the manuals I did not find the one for the D5600. I know the camera is a bit new, but it seems the app grabs the manuals online. I figured the D5500 would be a close match. Unfortunately when I went to download the manual, it failed every time.
Works fine; content is limited
As far as the core functionality of the app is concerned, it works just fine.
I have two complaints about the available content. First is that not all manuals are available. For example, no DLSR lens manuals are available. As another example, the SB-700 manual mentions a separate "collection of example photos" but this is not included in the manual download (because it’s a separate document) and isn’t available for its own download.
My second complaint is that not all manuals have page links. In some manuals, any place a page number is given, it’s a link you can tap to go directly to that page. This is an awesome feature for convenience. But not all manuals have page links like this.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
