    • Swipe the menu to the right
    • Select the Wi-Fi symbol
  6. Note the Network Name (SSID) and Password
  7. Connect your iOS device to the camera's Wi-Fi network:
    • On your iOS device, open the device's Settings panel, then choose Wi-Fi.
    • Locate your camera's network in the CHOOSE A NETWORK... panel and tap it.
    • Enter the password that was displayed on the camera's iOS Connect screen, then tap Join

    I have a first gen lytro camera and the latest iOS app from the Apple store. Following the directions here, I can connect my iPad Air to the camera's wifi, but when I open the app it gets hung up on "connecting to camera". It just keeps searching, I guess, until the lytro shuts off.

    Since it appears I am unable to use the 1st gen. Camera with my Samsung phone, why won't an icon indicating wi-fi, show on the screen as well? I was going to use my iMac for wi-fi.

    All the graphics geeks I have ever known worship Apple so I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for android. I have Windows and Linux PC's and a Windows phone. Don't expect to live long enough to see that!!

    Lack of support is the main reason why I didn't go for the Lytro Illum. I went all the way to Singapore to buy the first gen Lytro. I knew full well that it was a first gen product but I liked the potential and wanted to support Lytro early. I like playing with new things. What got me off it was a lack of support and decent software.

    The Desktop software never worked very well, in the end it does it's job but even the newest update keeps crashing if the wrong buttons are pushed (Windows). I run Linux but ... no support for Linux. And I also have Android phones and it's amazing to see that there is no support for Android.

    Honestly, Lytro is just leaving it's techno loving supporters dead in the water. That is the reason why I didn't invest in the Illum. I don't want to spend $1000+ and not be able to use my devices with it.
