Doesn't work I have a Sony Smartband Talk SW30 and if you tap the phone as per the instructions, it does not find the camera on the phone. It says you must be connected to wifi (which I am anyway) and does absolutely nothing

Doesn't show up in apps It says installed but doesn't show up anywhere.can't even open through play store.

Good if you know how to use it. People do your reading,you need smart connect app from sony to easily manage the smartband functions.

I belive you need to have smart contact installed and the you can. Open this extensions within.

I can't find the app after installing it. It's not listed on my phone. I had the same problem with another Sony app, though that one I could tap "open" from the Google Play page. Not so on this one. Sony, how do I take a picture with my new a5000 camera by using my phone as a remote? I'm using an S5.

Sucks The stupid app wouldn't even open.After instalation it gives you the choice to uninstal, you can't open the app in the play store, sony is a great company, but this app needs alot more work!

Doesnt work No app icon on phone after download. Complete waste of time!

Basic remote control for Sony Camera Simple remote control IF YOU HAVE A SONY ACTION CAMERA. Also smart extensions install in smart connect as, oddly, they're extentions not applications? Perhaps they should start selling Dumb Bands?

??? ???? ?™ Excellent stuff on the speed ⭐ camera extention Dept.Great Idea ? Work on the maturity.

Doesnt work! Something about wanting the smartband to connect via wireless...

Doesn't work and I'm using a Sony phone ffs

You need a smartwatch!!! It's a smartwatch extension people you won't see it on your phone

Cannot find app on phone Samsung galaxy s5

Can't find the app after installing in my mobile

I can't find it in a galaxy s4

Truly... Hated... It's not showing on the my phone....

App downloads but can't open. This has happened to many people including myself.

Doesn't work Camera does not shop up in Smart Connect

Garbage There's no app after install.

A start, but please make more apps This app allows you to take a photo. Sony, please create tutorials to help your users create more apps.

Sw2 and As15 no connection I try to connect my action camera with the SmartWatch 2, I have Sony Z1 for the connection, I try to search the camera and in the connection menu I didn't get anything.

Waste sony give some updates

Laggy, slow, and unpredictable. Huge potential though, thanks Sony! Just finished testing the app with my Smartwatch 2 and QX100. The app is moving in the right direction and has a handful of features that many people will find useful. There's a shutter timer for 2 seconds or 10 seconds, but that has to be manually set from the smartphone itself for every capture. Clicking on the app from the smartwatch will open the app from the smartphone, and from there it will try to automatically connect with the camera, but that feature is a bit unpredictable at the moment. You can preview your view finder to post your shots, but that is also laggy. One thing I do like about the camera is that it's able to capture pictures even when the smartphone's screen is off. I guess that saves some battery for you to capture even more photos on the go. Hopefully Sony continues developing this app further because it has huge potential. I tried an app from a third party developer called 'Sony Cam Smartwatch Control', and found the experience horrible, and the rude developer was no help. I complained about the lack of features, and the developer rudely commented back to my review by saying I should learn how to read the feature list.

Doesn't operate while locked the main thing is it doesn't operate when the phone is locked, if we need to unlock it then why to use smart features to use this app

The viewfinder is NOT working Using a QX100, the viewfinder function on the SW2 isn't working at all. Just the preview and use as a shutter - which is pathetic since you need to have the phone open anyway. Bad job, as usual.

Connects seamlessly But I cant see the live preview of my camera. Using HDR-AS15

I cant connect it wit GoPro hero cam Please support GoPro hero 3+ that can be useful

Performance is sub par to say the least. Linked between SW2, Xperia Z2 and DSC-QX10.

Can not connected..to my xperia Z ultra camera..nothing on my smartwatch 2, uninstalled

It's needs to be faster and more practical hope you'll update it soon

???? Huh? I don't understand, it says to connect to my smart watch using WiFi, Sony smart watch hasn't got WiFi it connects using Bluetooth so wtf?

Trouble connecting to Z3 Does not work for SW2 and Z3.

For those who can't find the app icon This is an app for Android Wear like the SmartWatch the icon will display in the accessory not the phone.

Smartwatch 3 issues How do I make this work with my SW3? I cannot get it to connect my SW3 to my hdr-as100v. Help me get it working and I'll rate a 5!

Not Working It seems to open a camera on my Xperia Z Ultra, but on the SmartWatch 2 it says waiting to connect to phone/camera. Shame.

Wow! Doesn't work at all with Sony Z2 and smartband swr30. Doesn't work at all. Just loads then is stuck loading. Better use Smart Camera.

Am I missing something Does not work on my Z3 Compact and watch 3 ... Says it's not compatible...

Not working Cannot get this to work on my z3

Great Now support with swr50. Love it!

Work by sony hx400v&sw3

can't work in smartband swr 30

It would be better if you could mirror the camera on the smartwatch just like the smart camera app so you could see what you were taking without holding your smartphone.
