Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

As this reply is more than 18 months old, is there any change in the direction?

I got 70D about 7 months ago and still nothing new about a wp8 app? Really poor service...

Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

Adding my support for this. Just got a 70D and would love the remote app on my Lumia 820. I find it really bad that Windows Phone doesn't get the attention it deserves.

 

Make sure it's available in the UK too Smiley Very Happy

Just registered to add my voice to the request for a WP8 app.

 

Come on Canon, it's incredibly lame that you have not responded to your customers!

 

Mark.

Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

The sad part of all of this is that Canon hasn't even upgraded their app for iphone and android.

Most reviews say it needs polish - and here we are a year later and nothing.

 

What's going to happen is that Nikon and Sony are going to come out with an incredibly robust app for phones with an elegant and intuitive interface - and kick Canon's proverbial A** from here to Timbuktu. Then Canon will be in defense mode, when they've had an opportunity to constantly get themselves out there and noticed.

 

If I was in charge of marketing, I'd can the lot of them. I'd get these engineers in gear and do what is HONESTLY a very simple task. Doing something this simple would get the community talking - less about the lack of sensor technology and more about something that's actually helpful as a tool.

 

I hang around photo forums all the time, and the wifi is well regarded as a half-baked why won't they do something(?) addition to the EOS line. People get it, then wonder why they bothered.

 

Even worse, Canon doesn't seem to want to let anybody else develop third party versions either. Even this would be helpful to their product line. I still love my Windows phone, and don't see changing any time soon. But, their app is pretty much useless for tablets (I mentioned this AGES AGO), another lost opportunity.

 

You'd almost think Canon was some company with a bunch of stoned surfer dudes working out of their garage. Anybody notice that GoPro had a fully functional app for Windows phones within a month of them hitting the stores? Sad, really.

Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

I'm not defensing Canon. I have Nokia windows phone and Ipad. I wish there were an app for my phone and better app for ipad. But like you said "Nikon and Sony ARE GOING TO COME OUT with an incredibly app." I don't have Nikon/Sony so I don't know, but according to your words they don't have anything either. So from the business perspective, why should Canon hurry up and revamp their app?
It's sad but true.

Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

This maybe the good sign that we'll have a window app for Canon EOS soon.

Re: EOS Remote for Windows Phone 8

Same problem here.

I am a windows phone user, and planning to buy a EOS 6D. However the absense of windows phone app makes the WiFi feature pretty useless. If I have to buy a new iPhone for this, I'd rather save that money and get a Nikon D800

"Just registered to post on this thread" - me too.

 

A shame the app is not implemented on Windows phone as well.

 

Come on!
