Bravo,Shuttersnitch! You're easy instructions for setting up Direct Mode had me downloading in minutes ( go to Shuttersnitch.com/forums and find the instructions under Eye Fi). Hats off to Eye-Fi for direct mode. Hats off to Shuttersnitch for the best app to use with it.
Wi-Fi camera-to-iPad connection not ready for prime time

I bought ShutterSnitch specifically to access the Eye-Fi "Direct Mode" wireless file transfer capability between my Canon T3i and my iPad 2.
After several hours of trying, I was finally able to succeed in making ShutterSnitch work as advertised, and yes, wi-fi image transfer is pretty cool...when it works.
The problem is that to establish and maintain a direct wi-fi transfer, the operator must perform several steps to create very specific conditions for success ... conditions that must be remembered and recreated more often than you’d think necessary after you paid $15.99 for this app and the premium cost of the Eye-Fi card.
What would Steve Jobs think about this product?
In this case, I think he’d say "Keep working on it, but it's not ready for prime time." (he might use more colorful language, however).
ShutterSnitch may be easier to set up than Eye-Fi's free app, but in no case does either "just work." Each time you anticipate wanting a transfer, you must first prepare your camera and iPad just so, and unless you leave both powered on, you'll have to re-do some or all the steps to recreate the connection next time you need it. Also, maintaining the wifi connection depletes the batteries of each device like nobody's business.
My advice: if you really want to try wi-fi transfer, the frustration you'll get from making your Eye-Fi app work will be less painful than the disappointment you'll feel every time you have to futz with ShutterSnitch to get it to work after you've paid $15.99 for the pleasure.
