Well, I'm glad to see Sony has made their wifi app useless again. I liked it for almost six months there.
Problem with that idea is the convenience is at the cost of obsolescence. ALL flash memory will fail. It simply get's used up with excessive writes. That's why cards fail, SSD's fail, and if a camera used internal memory, a professionally used camera that will see 100,000+ shots annually, will develop dead cells. You can map around them like SSDs, but now you're adding complication.The really sad thing is, Sony has (or HAD!) the best app of all the camera companies I've tried. And it still sucks.
The company that actually invests some money in making a quality mobile app will have a big leg up in the new decade. Younger people don't want to mess with cards.
Edit: My phone, which is going on four years old, has 256gb of storage, and I haven't lost a picture. I've had two SD cards fail in four years. It's time put some storage space in the camera, with a quality app to transfer photos to phone or desktop. It's 2020, start acting like it, Sony!
