My son has a nice Canon Camera and one of the reaons he picked this one is that he can control it from his phone.
He has the latest version of the Camer Connect on his phone and everything seems to be working but it is slow to respond, freezes often and sometimes just crashes. He has an iPhone 6 and it works fine otherwise.

When you encounter difficulty after making changes to your phone, such such as a change of the phone itself, an update of its operating system or the Camera Connect App, we recommend that you clear your the Wi-Fi settings on your camera, then reenter them.
To reset your camera's wireless function to its default settings, press the MENU Button, then navigate to the "Settings" tab (This has the wrench and hammer icon.), then scroll down to "Wi-Fi Settings" and press the FUNC SET button. On the next screen, choose "Reset Settings", then press the FUNC SET button. On the next screen, choose "OK" and press the FUNC SET button once again.
It is our recommendation to clear out the program from your mobile and un-install the application. Then, hard reset the phone and reinstall the app from the app store. Reconnect the camera upon re-installation and see if this issue persists.
Welcome to the Canon Forum! When switching to a new phone we recommend installing the latest version of Canon Camera Connect on your phone, resetting the Wi-fi settings of your camera, and going through the setup process fresh. Since this did not help in your situation I recommend contacting our Technical Support team for assistance with troubleshooting.

This app has been a pet peeve of mine for about 3 years. First, the connection guide Canon provides with it has no relationship to what I see on my 80d menu. Yes, I have been using the app for about 3 years, on both my phone and iPad, but that certainly did not happen by following any directions I ever got from tech support or on these forums. I did it IN SPITE of any Canon advice or "support" regarding the app. And every once in a while, out of nowhere, the thing just stops working and I have to set it up all over again. Many of your customers have no idea how to deal with the fiascos related to this software abmomination. It's such a shame that the best camera mfg in the world (well, 3rd best anyway - my Lieca is pretty good too, and then there are my old Hassleblads - but I digress.)
To be kind, the app would have to get about 100x better to be classified as junk. Just Google "Canon Camera Connect problems" for proof. And please, no boiler plate apologies. It's just a shame that Canon allows such issues to persist for such a long time with a "product" they put out.
SCRAP CAMERA CONNECT, START ALL OVER AGAIN, AND DO IT RIGHT! MY NIKON FRIENDS LOVE THEIR APP.
