When the Eye-Fi X2 Wi-Fi SD card appeared, it introduced a new feature, Direct Beam, which opens a direct connection with Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. Now the necessary apps for those devices have arrived. [Rob Galbraith via Engadget]
Having an Eye-Fi wireless SD card in your camera is useful, but only if there’s a wireless network to connect to. Soon, though, anyone with an Eye-Fi X2 will be able to upload photos through their phone’s 3G connection.
If you have an Eye-Fi SD Card and an iPad, you can ditch Apple’s iPad Camera Connection kit right now. Just use the app ShutterSnitch, which sends the photos on your Eye-Fi directly to your iPad (and iPhone).
