I bought this app because the retail app was very slow and constantly crashed on my Nexus 6p. I was looking for a light weight app that I could use more reliably as a remote shutter, wouldn't automatically transfer photos to my phone, and maintained the core features of the retail app. This does all that for me. I would only like it more if the manual camera controls were on the main camera page and not in a separate settings page so I could see the changes in exposure in real terms, and I would also appreciate a larger live preview window. Good app!
Blocked my device I installed the app, then started it with the theta camera s and 2 minutes later the camera bugged and won't shut down! Searched the net, others have same problem. I want a refund!
The Ricoh supplied app fails (at least up to now) to do 2 key things that I wanted ; a 1-shot timer and the option to not transfer the image to the phone immediately. This app simply allows both options (and a whole lot more) and that alone made it worthwhile for me. (Other reviews commenting on connection issues etc have got nothing to do with the App I would think and everything to do with the cameras local WiFi - problems that you would surely also get also with the Ricoh provided app?)
That timer feauture actually works. Thats pretty much why i got this app. Theta failed to add this 1 simple feature (i know it has a 5 sec timer but that not enough time of youre in the open)
Buggy and locked new Theta S to permanently on I had issues right from the start getting this to pair. Then, without entering my serial no. to pair, I actually got to the screen. I lowered the volume to zero and it still made the noise. The power stays on and now I cannot turn my Theta off. Would definitely not recommend and want my bloody money back !
Not quite ready to be a paid app Very nice idea, but twice lost contact with my camera in the middle of a command, leaving the camera in limbo, not talking over WiFi, and not wanting to be turned off. May try it again when bugs are out of it. Tested with a Nexus 10 tablet.
