Room for Improvement Just got the iON camera, and the WiFi and app is really useful. It has a few bugs and crashes here and there, but I didn't expect it to be perfect. The glitches made me give it 3 stars, and the fact that you cannot save your photos to your phone album is kind of annoying, I accidentally did it once, but can't get it to happen again. That's where the GoPro app has the advantage. Fix those few things and it will be much better!
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.
While I love the camera (iON Air Pro); the app will not connect to the WiFi Podz on the camera. I can connect to the Podz through the browser but NOT the app; which is VERY frustrating. Also, I have submitted help desk / service request through the company Twitter, Facebook and website portal and have received NO response. I have sent off an email to the US Service Department - let's see if this brings a response. In the end.... A Great Camera - but terrible app and equally terrible app / company customer service
Just connected to the app fine I just purchased an ion Air Pro Lite WiFi and everything seems to work fine with the app. Maybe the people trying to use it are messing something up? The app has you connect to your wifi network, then connect to to the camera dongle. In order to connect to the camera you must select it a your phone's wifi network first! That's the most important step! -1 star because I haven't tested it fully, will update in a week or two.
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.
Camera is great but app is absolutely terrible Choose an ION air pro 3 this time around as alternative to gopro -need live streaming however app is hopeless after firmware upgrade the app is still not working properly. 1. Camera only connects some times usually takes 10 min+ to actually get it going 2. Portrait only unless forced through 3rd party app as landscape - no record button in landscape. 3. App crashes on screen flip or screen lock. Requiring camera restart and starting from scratch. Verdict if live stream is important this is not 4 u
