Camera companion apps on phones have for a long time been notoriously bad with poor features and slow clumsy connections. Last year Fujifilm addressed the issue of its own languishing Fujifilm Camera Remote app with the launch of the new Fujifilm XApp. Hot off the heels of that, Fujifilm has already prepared an app version 2.0 with some big new features - which were revealed at yesterday's X-Summit, alongside news of the new Fujifilm X100VI camera.

The XApp went a long way to solving the majority of the major gripes that Fujifilm users had about previous apps, and the overall experience of the new app is pretty solid, with many more features, and a (usually) very stable connection in my personal experience, but there is definitely room for improvement, so it is great to see this is a priority for Fujifilm with a major update coming so soon.
