How to transfer from a Toshiba FlashAir™ card?


Connect your iPhone to the Wi-Fi network of the FlashAir™ card. When the card is in your camera and the camera is turned on, the FlashAir™ card transmits a Wi-Fi signal. Open your iOS settings, go to the Wi-Fi settings and search for a Wi-Fi network named flashair_xxxxxxxxxxxx.

Change to list view by tapping the list view symbol in the top of the folder view. List view contains additional information like file name for photos, file date and file size for photo which can be very handy since PhotoSync is not always able to create thumbnails of your remote photos.
