Eye-Fi app adds Direct Mode, iPad support

Eye-Fi has released a major update to its iOS application adding support for Direct Mode transfers and native iPad compatibility. The new Direct Mode feature allows Eye-Fi X2 card users to transfer photos and videos from their camera directly to their iOS device by establishing a direct Wi-Fi network between the camera and the device. Photos transferred using Direct Mode are saved in the device’s built-in camera roll and appear in the Eye-Fi app where they can be previewed or uploaded to the user’s home computer or any of their configured online sharing services. An optional full-screen mode allows users to automatically preview photos on their iOS devices as they are transferred. The update also adds support for background file transfers on multitasking-capable devices and can automatically transfer photos taken with the Camera app on the iPhone, fourth-generation iPod touch or iPad 2. The Eye-Fi app requires a device running iOS 4.0 or later; Direct Mode requires an Eye-Fi X2 card with firmware 4.5021 or higher and Eye-Fi Center 3.3 or later for configuration. Eye-Fi 2.0.1 is available from the App Store as a free download.
