Adequate. Can start and stop recording and slowly zoom in and out. Can use tablet as display for camera. Can change between movie and camera mode. That's it. Sony, please improve this app. There is so much more potential to be had. The first thing I would suggest would be to increase the amount of screen room dedicated to the viewer. It's way too small compared to my actual screen size and would help functionality. Secondly, increase the size of the zoom buttons. Both can easily be done.

This app is genuinely awful, it's so hard to navigate and use, the remote shooting only worked once for me and now it refuses to connect to my phone (yes even with NFC/Bluetooth turned off +uninstall reinstall) and I can't transfer any images over. I had to just manually use the SD card and an adapter to get them onto my laptop. If I could give a 0, I would.

Paired it easily with Galaxy S22 Ultra. The bad: Very limited, won't work if flash is set to fill, or if shooting mode is set to continuous. The good: You can use it as a remote control in SOME modes, and it does not insist on copying the image back to the phone unless you tell it to. (My Nikon app does that, slows everything down for something I have no need for.) The verdict: Not worth the bother, just use the timer on the camera if you want to avoid shake.
