then it crashes I find this a very well designed and useful controller for my D800. It works great with my Moto G (Android 5.0.2) phone, when it works. It will capture a few images then crash. I will not pay for the license until it works consistently.

Doesn't work I am using a canon t3i or 600d and a galaxy s4. I have an otg mini usb cable plugged into the camera and I have connected the charging/micro usb cable into my phone. I connect the usb male and female and it still won't connect with my camera. The camera is turned on. Does magic lantern stop it from working?

Mick Helicon Remote seems to have recently 'broken' (I'm assuming after an update of some kind). Camera is canon 1000D & used to work very well, now throws an error & seems to show a battery fault icon & won't connect. Tried 2 different fully charged batteries and 2 different cameras (same model), checked USB (good, another remote app works fine), same error on both Nexus 7 and SII phone. Nice app until this happened so it would be great if it's fixable - update, this problem is now fixed!
