Image Sync

Hi everybody.

Iím new here and about to re-enter the Pentax community with a K70.

My only hesitation is the Image Sync app, which appears to be a disaster. Are there other ways to wirelessly transfer images to my iPad besides this buggy app? Is the app really as frustrating as Iíve read it Is?

Thanks for your guidance!

There are plenty of third party apps (including PC apps, including the one I made), but none are are going to be able to achieve faster transfers wirelessly. USB works great though. You can even tether!

If using Image Sync to transfer pictures I'd save pictures in the camera as RAW + small JPEG and then only transfer the jpegs that I really wanna share immediately...
