For those that rate this device low because it disconnects. The problem isn't the WU-1b or the app. The problem is actually your device. Your device wants a connection to the Internet and since this can't get to the Internet if you have another WiFi network in range that your phone or iPad is setup to connect to it will abandon the WU-1b in favor of the other connection. Remove your other network and it works great. Response time is a little slow but it is fantastic to be able to be able to check focus on the larger screen. It is extremely helpful if you are in a tight space and can't get behind your computer. Being able to touch the screen to select the focus point is quick and easy. Response is a bit slow so this isn't the release mechanism for taking fast pictures of subjects like kids.

App is buggy and crashes frequently as you use it. Restarts but it is annoying. Functionality is limited, as described in product description. If the app allowed more camera control this would be worth the cost . As it is, it is an expensive remote with wireless download capability. Raw files can be viewed but mine would not download

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

I have an iPad (3) iPhone 5s iPhone 6 and a Nikon d600. I couldn't connect any of these to the most useless device in the world, the wU-1b adapter.

Works fantastic!

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

I use this with the Helicon Remote App on my Samsung phone and tablet and it works great. You can change almost every setting, preview shots, save photos to the tablet or camera and more. Easy to setup and the results are awesome!

No IPAD Support

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

System works as advertised for Android connection. There is no iPAD app. There is an iPhone app.... which means Nikon has not kept the app current.

Not worth the price

By

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

The Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter worked only one time on my Galaxy S3 smart phone. After that, it did not work. It does not work with my iPad either. Bottom line: A worthless piece from Nikon. It is useless. The warranty has expired so I am stuck with it.

I have been struggling with this adapter for almost a year and have given up. Lose connection ad distances of less than 1ft. Have tried with multiple devices with the same failure. I would not recommend.

Useless

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

This is a useless gadget without support for the most popular operating system in the world. What is Nikon thinking, not creating a Windows app?

This dongle works great, but it is a dongle.

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

Wish this was built into my d610, but works fine with my iphone 4, ipad 2nd gen. and ipad air (w/ the Nikon app.) The small case, and leash helps keep it nearby and convenient. Nikon needs to work more on the app than on any hardware upgrade. Plus cost is very reasonable IMHO.

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

I tried to use iphone 5 and iphone 4. And it only work well with iphone 4 with no other wifi configured. I wish they can make this device to use bluetooth connection that would resolve all the problem everyone is having a problem.

Works, but that's pretty much it

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

I have a Nikon 1 J3. The WU-1b connects my camera and my tablet, and it takes a picture when I tap the button, but that's it. There is no "tap to focus" option in any focus setting. The software ignores manual settings. The software ignores manual focus. I knew before purchasing that changes to settings couldn't be made from within the app, but I did expect it that it would use the settings I selected prior to connecting. I love my camera, but at this point I don't understand why they put a bulb function in the J3 since bulb is more or less unusable without a remote control and the only remote available for it is the WU-1b and its much-to-be-desired software. Being able to use bulb without holding down the button and getting blurry photos was the prime reason I bought the adapter, but the software effectively neuters the adapter for use with this camera. I cannot recommend this product for use with the Nikon 1 system at this point. If they fix the issue of the software totally ignoring the camera settings, that would change.
