I just wasted a couple of hours yesterday trying to get Fuji's wireless apps working between my X-A1 and PC or Kindle Fire HD (Android under the skin, side-loading the apps). No go. I'm hoping to avoid getting a decent smartphone with good camera, only because I'm not comfortable with the soapbar ergonomics of the various phones I've tried. But so far I'm not seeing much encouraging reports about connecting a good P&S or mirrorless compact camera wirelessly with mobile devices. I read dozens of threads on the same problem on various websites, tried everything recommended. Some folks say they've gotten their Fuji wireless apps working, including those who own the same specific bits of gear I have. I tried all their recommendations, but no luck. The dozens of negative reviews from dissatisfied Fuji owners regarding Fuji's wireless apps indicates the problem is with the apps, not the users. But I thought I'd give it one more try by asking here before I delete the apps. Maybe someone else has found one specific trick or sequence of steps that works. Here's what I have, and have tried using: Fuji X-A1, most current firmware update. Kindle Fire HD, most recent 7" version, which is compatible with all non-Amazon Android-compatible apps I've side-loaded, so the device shouldn't be the problem. Fuji's "Camera Application" and "Photo Receiver" apps, both the most currently available versions. Using these apps and devices bypasses the home WiFi, setting up their own little network, so my DSL modem should be irrelevant. I can see the Fuji camera establishing a connection with the Kindle tablet. But the apps never connect. Both fail after a few minutes. I've tried varying the sequence of steps too - no luck. The handful of owners of the same equipment who say they've successfully connected the camera and tablet say the sequence wasn't critical anyway. And FWIW I also tried the Fuji "PC AutoSave" software, which does use the home (or other) WiFi between the PC and Fuji X-camera. Again, no luck. And it's a huge resource hog so I deleted it after trying for a day to get it working. But this wasn't as important to me as getting wireless connectivity between the camera and mobile device.
