    Does anyone know why so few apps are compatible with the new A7II? From what we have heard it is very similar to the A7 but only about a half dozen apps are available. Even the upload apps are missing.

    The App Store has been very disappointing throughout.

    Why there are even less for the A7's, I don't know. Perhaps they are not compatable, or the software designers simply don't care.

    It is difficult to believe that the computer or operating system in the A7II is very different from the A7/R/S. I wonder if it is just a matter of someone not updating the sales software database. Oh well, I never used them much with my A6000.

    I just get the idea that they simply gave up.

    I purchased many of the Play Memories Apps and used them all the time on my A6000. Having upgraded my camera to the A7ii I now feel robbed as the apps I purchased I can no longer use. It's like someone took my purchases and threw them in the bin. £20 I'll never get back.
    Sony support Sucks.

    Give them a few weeks, they will get updated. It was the same when the A6000 came out, took a while for the app developers to catch up.

    On the p/m website lists the A7ii as working with the remote. Tried changing image size sent to phone and both phone and A7 froze. When they started working again A7ii would not auto focus . Eventually had to do full reset to get it working.

    Checked website and version on camera wasn't current. Downloaded newest version and works great now.

    Also you can change the jpeg size sent to the phone under 'image size' in the camera menu.
