Easy set up, except

I shoot weddings and concerts, and setting up the app was easy, except for the “watermark” which there’s no way to import a png from a mobile device (that I am aware of). I tried to copy and paste my png file from my Adobe cloud service to no avail.

I only shoot in raw/awr all the time. Joey is a waste of time for me, so is there a fix for the watermark issue on the app coming soon?

Perplexed In Philly

new experience to instant sharing!

Good experience for the first time when i just wanted to have an app that gives me instant sharing, transfer to my mobile device!
my family friends also loves the gallery being shared.
I think it can be used widely more outside of wedding professionals.

Numerous connectivity stability issues from hotspot to Bluetooth connecting to actually keeping a connection using an iPhone Pro Max with iOS 15 and the ILCE-1 with firmware 1.10. This app is fairly useless as it only allows jpeg. Please support RAW and HEIF and allow the user to select which types to transfer. Very disappointed.
