I purchased a WU-1a when I bought my D3200 months ago. Waited for the iPhone/iPad app to come. It seldom connects and when it does it disconnects after downloading 1 or 2 pictures. Anyone having good luck with this on iPhone/iPad?

The camera has a very difficult time staying connected to my HTC Thunderbolt while downloading photos, and more importantly the videos. (i've had one successful video transfer). The camera disconnects very quickly from the phone once downloading begins. Listen to MrEd (in the Q & A) and open up the API so people may change the application to better our user experience. I dont know if this is really a problem with the application or the camera, but i hope not the latter. I would love to use the application to trigger videoing so I can use it as a flip out screen and what not. Although instant transfer of the video should be held off because of the file size and the time it takes to transfer. Im planning on using this app for ski training and I think people will follow if you guys can get this done. Instant review in certain sports is extremely helpful!

Flash won't fire
from CLE OH
Comments about Nikon WU-1A Wireless Mobile Adapter:
Clunky, better than not having wifi I guess. Downloads images ok, I'm able to take pictures with it but for some reason, the flash won't fire. I wish it was built into the d7100 and I wish the flash worked with it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

WU-1a Unusable unless you have an Android
If you're considering this product and expect to connect it to a Windows based tablet or PC don't waste your money.
Wu-1a and Windows Phone/APP
I used this adapter with my Samsung Galaxy phone and it works well. I like the ability to walk away from the camera to take photos. I can catch a lot of surprise shots that way. Some list the inability to zoom the camera or pan/tilt, really it is not for that maybe someone can create a tripod that will pan/tilt:) It is just a shutter release and states pretty much that just that. Now I have a Windows phone and will never go back to any other phone OS. It is the best phone or rather piece of technology that I have bought in the past 15 years. Quick to start up easy to use, and it just gets me the way I want to use the phone and features. HOWEVER there are fewer APPS out there and this is one that needs to be addressed. I have a Windows tablet also that I would love to be able to use as well with it for the shutter release. Still learning my Nikon D3200 after 2 years I have finally got around to buying the DVD on the D3200 and wow what a difference it makes if you learn HOW to!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Waste of money.
I'm trying to connect from an iPhone 4 to a Nikon d7100. Poor connection and drops the connection.

It's ok when it works
from Atlanta, GA, USA
Man I done tried the airplane mode and it worked for a min now it act like it don't want to dowload and it will not stay connected to my camera which it's a Nikon P520
Took help to get it connected to my Galaxy S4
Just bought the D3200 package deal, specifically because this adapter came included. I had to reach out to Samsung tech support to finally successfully get connected. It would see the connection in Wi-Fi but with an error that "Network disabled because internet connection is slow". Samsung sent me the following solution below which did work (happy dance) I just hope that it remains stable. The software and features could probably be more robust but I just wanted to get pics to my phone for that instant gratification of sharing them out :) Samsung Solution: open Apps >> Settings >> Connectivity >> Wi-fi >> Menu >> Advanced. Auto-network switch. Unckeck if any.

The form factor works well, it's tiny and unobtrusive (although having built-in WiFi would be much preferred!). However, there are two major downsides: 1. This device is an access point only, it cannot connect to your existing network. This, IMO, is the biggest flaw in the device as I need to now choose whether I want to have Internet access or control my camera. Now I need to bring a dedicated tablet with me to use it. 2. The Android software is spotty at best. On my Nexus 4 connectivity is very poor and I can't get LiveView to work. On my Nexus 10 things are a bit better, but I've found that the Helicon Remote is much more feature rich. As feedback for the next-gen product I would like to see my camera as a client of an existing WiFi network, not an access point, and my primary use case is to automatically push pictures to my phone so they can be geotagged and shared or backed up in the field. Remote control software is useful, but separating the backup and control functionality into different apps may help both use cases optimize their UX.
Works pretty well!
from Reading, UK
When I first used the device I had problems with slow transfers / disconnections. Switching off Bluetooth on my iPhone seems to have solved this. Although it still disconnects occasionally! Other than that it does exactly what i had hoped for. However It would be great if it could transfer video, hence only 4 stars.

Not Compatible with Windows Phone
Disappointed I cannot use this feature. I own the adapter since I bought it with my camera however it is not compatible with Windows phone as far as I know. is there a plan to do this?

Problem with iPad/iPhone Disconnects fixed?
from Kent, Washington
Like others I have experienced disconnects with IOS devices. If you are having this issue try putting the IOS device into "airplane mode" and enable wi-fi only. This both speeds the downloads up and makes the transfer much more reliable.
