Poor Performance, Poor support. I'm sure you have read about how this app is not supported on newer versions of Android (if you have a phone that is less than 2 years old then chances are it will not work for you), so I won't belabor the point. As far as app performance, because of the lack of newer Android support I had to load this onto an old HTC Thunderbolt that I have rooted to run 4.2 and I am very disappointed in how sloppy it runs. First off it is WAYYYYY slow in communication with my camera, I click zoom and it takes a good 30 seconds before my camera zooms and even with the refresh rate turned way down or up the representation of what my camera is seeing is so far off that it is almost useless for framing shots. Yes some people are probably going to say "Well what do you expect using that old of a phone" and I will reply that if they updated this app to be supported by the latest versions of Android I could use my Nexus 5 and that wouldn't be an issue, but from what I hear it is the same even with better hardware. Also contacting Pixela has resulted in no return communication, which shows that they don't care about this app anymore.

No support for recent android versions Seriously? Are you kidding me? No support for recent android versions? Just bought a R56, which is released this year. I expected that it would support my phones and tablets, but apparently I'm much to modern for canon.
