Ratings and Reviews
Bad app, decent camera
The app has been laden with bugs from the beginning, and still does not appear to work reliably with the newest iOS updates. But, the camera is good. Seriously, all Nikon has to do is spend a little time on this app... come on... pretty please?
This app is terrible. There are severe bugs with basically every feature. Even if the bugs were addressed, the performance is awful. To download photos from the camera, you need to connect to the camera’s private WiFi network - but full res photos can still take more than 5 minutes to download - and forget videos with any significant duration. Once you *do* get things downloaded, the app’s photo library sorts completely inscrutably (in what appears to be random order), so you likely won’t be able to find the photos you just downloaded. The entire app is so slow that it’s borderline unusable. I generally just use USB or a card reader to get data off the camera - it’s orders of magnitude faster/easier.
Slightly Slow but Works Well
This is an initial review since I received my Nikon Keymission camera recently.
I was hesitant to purchase the Keymission 170 due to the plethora of poor reviews regarding the connectivity to the app. After reading the instructions AND following them, I had no issues.
Step one was making sure my camera had the firmware up to date. This is critical when pairing with the app. Once done, the camera linked to my phone and everything worked (iPhone X with iOS 12.4 installed).
There is a slight learning curve as the app doesn’t work as smoothly as I think it should but it is not so horrible that it deserves 1-2 stars.
If you expect immediate results out of the box without a little reading and research, the Nikon series action cameras are not for you. Otherwise, great camera and app. I plan to follow up this review once I have used the camera/app for a few months.
