Samsung GS5 Configuration The WIFI will not allow you to configure or connect to your phone via the app unless you turn off your mobile data in my phone (Samsung GS5). Turn off your mobile data to stream controls and view to your phone. The instructions do not tell you that and tech support is useless. They'll just issue you an RMA# to return the camera so they can diagnose. They said it takes 10 days not including shipping time. Turn off your mobile data to link your phone to the camera for streaming functions.
Poloraid xs100 app works better This app is a combo of 2 Poloraid apps for the xs100 action cameras. Guess what? They work better! I Keep getting "firmware available" popup but when I navigate to the link I get a 404 page not available. Called iON support (they are useless) and was told the app is being updated..hope so. Last update was August of 2014.
Met my expectations! Installed and connected to my Ion air pro lite with ease. Hint: I connected directly through my LgG3 first, then installed the app and connected through it, no problems. Gave 4/5 because streaming is choppy and app closed unexpectedly twice. But I only needed it to check the view angle, and it achieved that. So I'm happy.
Things to remember when working with the app: 1. Connect to the wifipodz through your settings menu first before opening the app. 2. The Wifipodz transmits through wifi but i believe the signal is weak and therefore easily disrupted by other wifi signal and possibly even the data connection (i found wifipodz works best outdoors where theres minimal wifi signal from other sources) 3. Dont bother setting up connection settings in the app it is a POS. Just connect through a usb cable for less headaches or connect manually then open the app. 4. If the app wont connect to the ion camera after connecting to the wifi manually through your phones settings "force stop" the app and try again.
Waste of time Happily, it's been a very long time since I have made such an unsatisfactory consumer electronics purchase. The camera seems physically well designed and built but from there on the story is straight downhill. Software is poor, instruction manual is very insufficient. The interfaces are even worse. Why did they opt to connect via Wi-Fi since you cannot do anything with the camera other than make videos without the use of another device? Bluetooth would have made a lot more sense and been more usable and reliable. The end result of my experience was simply messing up my Wi-Fi network which took even more time to sort out. After one long, frustrating and unproductive evening the thing is going right back in the box and back to the store in the morning.
App is useless Just purchased Ion Air Pro Lite WIFI. Using app on LG G2. App continuously crashes. Works for a minute or less and shuts down. What does work during that minute is useful but it just doesn't last. Fix the app and you'll have a very nice system.
