Connection process is horrid. You have to basically reuse the "easy" connection guide every time you connect your camera to your phone. It saves your phone/camera info, but that doesn't matter. It won't work unless you delete that info and restart with the barely functioning connection process all over again. Canon has a very long way to go on this app.

Disappointing. This app is really only useful for moving photos from my Cannon Rebel T7 to my Android smartphone so Google Photos will back them up. That's it. The app is not compatible with my camera for geotagging (why not?!), nor does it transfer any of the video files in .MOV format so I still have to move those manually from the SD card. It's also clunky trying to re-connect on Wi-Fi.

As a professional photographer owning 7 Canon cameras, I would rate this software zero stars if the option existed. User-unfriendly and, in my experience, basically unusable. Connection problems are routine and if one is lucky enough to connect at all the controls are limited or missing altogether. The EOS computer utility works well, use that instead if you can.
