Review by Khurt Williams

Learn to write useful reviews. - The primary key in reviewing a app is to provide specific enough detail to allow whoever reads it to find value in the review. If the app was unplayable or tried to scam you out of money we could both agree that the app deserves a bad review. Technical issues can be resolved if you first contact the developers rather than run to the review section to give them a 1 star rating. You will likely get a response back from developers that are current with their app. Don’t let good apps suffer because they’re filled with un-detailed 1 star reviews. Remember you are writing the review to help other buyer make a decision. This is not the space for your personal attacks or to ask for additional features. It’s not about YOU, it’s about the next person.

Review by icngacsn

Does not work for D7100 - It looks like a wonderful app but unfortunately although the author states the d7100 is supported, it does not recognize my camera. A quick web search shows many d7100 users in the same situation. I have emailed for support but have not received a response. I’m not holding my breath since the last update was in 2012...

Review by formula stig

It would be great if it worked - It shows signs of life, but then will crash. Its very frustrating. The price is right, but don't expect it to work all the time, perhaps any of the time.
