Y’all should really fix this app

I’ve been using this app for about 7 months now, and it had been working just fine. It was downloading pictures, it was responsive, and overall I thought it was a pretty useful app to have. But, up until a couple of weeks ago, the app started to go downhill. Every time I would try to download a picture, it would stop mid way and it would not even download. This became very frustrating, as I tried multiple times over to download the same picture. I ended up having to empty my SD card on my computer and I just emailed the picture to myself. I’ve had to do this a dozen times because the app will not download pictures to my phone. The app also freezes constantly, it disconnects from the camera very frequently (hence the reason my pictures don’t download anymore), and it has become very frustrating and ultimately useless. I hope you guys read your reviews and fix the problems that are going on, it would be much appreciated.

If you enjoy mazes and clueless riddles, get this app

This app seems like maybe it used to work. Now it’s some different screens like a maze where you go down one hall looking to accomplish something only to either have a locked door or a dead end. If you find a hallway that is successful, and you move forward a little, that will probably be as far as you go. I’ve been working on this for multiple days. After formatting my disc of three pictures I had (thankfully only three, I now can turn WiFi on and off. Then it starts doing something on the screen. No instructions, just some squares move around on the screen. So because WiFi was turned on I head to the WiFi settings on my phone and after a few tries I see the Nikon camera come up and let me click on it. Now I think I’m getting somewhere. But wait. Dead end. Or a hidden door maybe? The screen on the camera starts with the moving squares on the screen and says negotiating. Not sure what that means. I wait. Still going. Nothing changes on the camera or the phone. I get off my WiFi screen on my phone and then the camera stops and turns off my WiFi. Hmmm. I guess that was wrong. So then I try again and leave it go negotiating longer. Still no. Dead end. WiFi off. Do I really need this app? Don’t know. If I stumble onto another step maybe I will post it here. I mean I have nothing else better to do than to stare at my camera negotiating... I guess. Or maybe I’m supposed to do something. We will see. The saga continues...

Unreliable connectivity and extreme lag

It’s virtually impossible to take a photo with this, and I think it’s because this app is a disaster. When it finally does connect, you’ll be able to take one or two photos with 30 seconds to two minutes of lag between for the live view to update to what you’re actually photographing. Usually, after about 2 to 3 photos, it will lose its connection, you’ll have to go back into your Wi-Fi settings and find the device again to reconnect it. Then, if you’re lucky, you will actually find a connection again in the app. Most of the time using this is spent waiting for the live view to update or fixing a lost connection to your Wi-Fi settings. When it is actually connected, it’s so laggy that the live view can sometimes not update for longer than a minute or more—if at all.

I actually sent my WU-1a remote back to Nikon to have it checked because I was unable to get a connection for long periods of time when I needed it. They sent the device back saying that I has no issues. So, it must be the app.

I was trying to use it again today after a year or so of forgetting about it (because when I did try to use it in the past, I was unable to actually get it to do what I needed). Today, I was able to get to it take two photos before it disconnected again. I came to search for an app update, because I thought “it must have been updated within the last year due to the bugs and issues making it impossible to use“. Surprise, no update!!
