Image Sync app crashing SOLVED

I recently bought a K-70 and downloaded the latest Image Sync app for android ver 2.0.1
The app worked fine and I was able to use my phone or my tablet for image transfers.
Few days later it stopped working and it crashed every time I selected an image for transfer. This happened on both phone and tablet. Resetting Wi-Fi in camera did nothing, resetting the camera to default settings did nothing. Reinstalling the app did nothing! Finally I remembered that through the "MENU" on the K-70, I changed the "file name" from the default "IMGP" to "K70", in order to immediately recognize the files in a file manager, since I have more than 100.000 "IMGP" files from a K-x and a K-50. Image Sync app does not recognize/like this change and it crashed every time. Resetting the camera does NOT reset the file name to default IMGP, so I had to do it myself. Image Sync works like before. I hope someone in Pentax fixes this.

I've also changed the name on my KP, but Image Sync 2.0.1 can't even connect to my camera... They didn't replyed to my e-mail which I sent by the contact developper feature in the play store.

I too re-name the prefix in my image file names. Although I may not have 100,000 digital images I do have the output from several cameras over the last 15 years or more and filename duplication had been an issue for me!
(Un)fortunately I have neither an Android or iOS device so the vagaries of Image Sync have not been a problem. Pity they never compiled it for Windows, but with the recent independent release of WiFiCommander this may not be an issue

Shame. I thought this was going to be news that Ricoh had extracted their fingers and updated Image Sync to fix the crashing in recent versions of Android. No so, then.

Thanks for figuring out the bug and a way to get around it! I guess I'm back to the default naming of my images until the bug is fixed (if ever).
