Simply will not connect to my Canon Rebel T6, wifi or NFC. I have tried numerous troubleshooting steps, nothing works. I have updated my camera to the latest firmware, cleared data on phone and camera, reinstalled app, tried turning off adaptive connectivity, literally nothing works. I can connect to the camera's WiFi just fine, the app simply doesn't recognize the camera. Using NFC, the phone recognizes the camera's NFC but the camera and app don't respond. Not functioning.

It's probably the most frustrating, inconsistent, and maddening app I've ever used. But it's pretty much necessary if I want to send photos directly to my phone from my camera. So I use it. I just wish I didn't have to jump through hoops to make it work sometimes. I also wish the importing process didn't take an actual hour for about 50 photos.

I am having the same pairing through Bluetooth issue. I enjoyed that. I could pair it this way and download my pictures wherever I was and all of a sudden it can no longer connect and searches for a " faster Wi-Fi connection". I have tried all the deleting the app and reinstalling, resetting the communications, etc. and cannot get a direct connect through Bluetooth. I used to be very happy with this app but now I'm finding it very frustrating and upsetting.
