Perfect for Parents

I love this app! I have 2 teenagers who are active in sports and love taking pics of them and their various teams. This app allows me to text pics right to the other parents during and right after the games! I can also upload to social media and keep family far and wide involved in games. I only gave it 4 stars because the transfer speed can be a bit slow sometimes, which is frustrating when I’m trying to get pics to various parents. Otherwise, love the app!

Won’t connect!

I’ve tried genuinely at least 50 times over the past few months to get my d3400 to connect to my phone using this app, but it won’t. I’ve tried in several different locations. My laptop right now is busted, so I was hoping to be able to rely on this to transfer my photos over, but again, it WONT CONNECT. Maybe it’s just a bug I’m experiencing but it’s still driving me up the walls.

It was great but

Ever since it updated, Bluetooth pairing does not work and it never downloads my pictures to my phone anymore! The touch pair option doesn’t work anymore either! And now my phone won’t repair to camera!

It’s complicated

As I said above it’s pretty complicated this app but once you get it connected...... Everything works well...

Doesn’t work, Doesn’t Work, DOESN’T WORK!!!

Is anyone at Nikon awake? Does anyone from Nikon actually READ these reviews? Allegedly, Nikon “updated” this app a week ago but it still DOES NOT WORK! How many HOURS have Nikon customers wasted trying to get this useless app to work? The camera DOES NOT sync with the phone. I’ve uninstalled and re-installed it endless times but it will NOT sync with my phone. FIX IT, NOW!

it works. kinda.

i have a d7500 and in order to connect to snap bridge, i must forget the camera on my iphone’s bluetooth connection AND in the snapbridge connected cameras in order to connect again. it’s quite annoying it doesn’t just remember and connect automatically. also, i use the self timer a lot and it gets annoying to have to reset the timer after every picture i take. i also wish the time was variable because 3 seconds is not enough time. it would be cool to be able to use this to trigger video as well, but i’m not holding my breath.

No RAW and too slow to download jpeg

There’s no RAW support but it’s ok. I use RAW + jpeg in the pics and just use this app to download. What a pain to connect to d7500 though.

New to Nikon

I usually bought Canon cameras but when I compared The Nikon 500, I decided to try Nikon for a change and so far I am so glad I did, to make things even better, this SnapBridge app really is wonderful if you enjoy going on trips, taking photos and having them instantly available to post online. Love it!

Do something about videos!!

It works amazingly for me to download pictures. But it does nothing at all, for downloading videos 😐
