"If it's too good to be probably is."

OK so I was super excited to get my SnapBridge app on my phone so I could sync with my camera. Instructions were simple, everything went smooth and there it was... I could see all of my camera photos right there on my phone! I transferred a few photos and went about my way. So a few days later I pulled out my camera again to transfer a few more photos. Went to the app, opened the camera, can't connect. Try again, can't find camera, camera is out of range, turn camera on... what?? This was almost too good to be true the first time, so what's going on? You know what they say about 'if it's too good to be true'... it probably is.

Turns out I should have read the reviews on the app, not that it would matter bc it's the only one that works with my camera.

The guy was right. Every time you turn the camera off you will have to reinstall the app. That means throw it away, forget the device on Bluetooth, delete connection to phone from camera, download the app, reconnect phone and camera, download pictures, don't let it go to sleep until you're completely finished, and proceed to do all of this again E V E R Y T I M E Y O U T U R N O F F T H E C A M E R A.

Maybe they will make the necessary corrections to help this operate smoothly bc when it's good, it's really good, but once it's off, it's completely gone. Until then, don't waste your time. The old-fashioned way is still the best: download images to your computer from the card and AirDrop what you want to your phone. That's how we did it in the olden days... like last year.
