Hello. I have a Nikon5300 and i want to transfer the photos in my camera to my iPhone. I tried using Wi-fi with WMU app once and it worked. Today i tried it again unfortunately it didn't work. Can someone help?

How are you trying to connect? I will try to give the steps I have used (Only once or twice to see if it worked). Turn on/enable the WiFi in the camera menu, Maintenance (Wrench Icon). Then in the iPhone, go to settings and WiFi. Select the Nikon--- network. Then start the WMU APP. That should get you to seeing your photos on your 5300.

Let us know if that doesn't work.

i go to settings on my phone, i see my camera's name and it connects but when i go to the WMU app i can't find any signals and it says try again
So you are saying that the phone is connecting to the Nikon camera Wifi? If the phone says and shows a connection to the camera, then I would tend to agree that the APP needs to be uninstalled/removed from your phone and then reinstalled to see if it fixes the glitch.

BitTorrent Sync (btsync). It produces a network between all your connected devices (wherever they are). You would transfer the photos to your pc, then sync them to your phone.

Well, finally it worked. Updated the location data first and followed the wi-fi connection rules. When the "I" started flashing I went on my iPhone and changed the wi-fi settings to the camera. After the connection I could see my camera photos on my iphone. The next step will to use the iphone to take camera photos....later.

Glad you were able to get it working. For me, I really haven't used it other than to see that it does work, but is lacking some features that I think would be useful.

OH, Welcome to Nikonites. It is a great place to hang out. Some really nice and knowledgeable people on here. I see you are in FL. There is a meet a greet in FL in Feb 2017. Look in the Meet and Greet forum for details. People have shown up from as far away as Canada. It has been reported that it is a great time for talking and shooting some great shots with others from this forum. Have fun.

In my case I was having the same problem. The key part of the solution for me was to do things in the correct order.

1. Make sure WMU is NOT running
2. Turn on WiFi in the Camera
3. Go to the iPhone and in WiFi settings, connect to the Nikon... SSID
4. Then, and only then, start the WMU.

It's clearly a bug in the software which prevents it from picking up the connection if it is already running.

I saw a you tuber suggest that you switch your iphone to airplane mode and then connect your phone to the camera.......this worked for me
Welcome to Nikonites. Just a word about looking at the date on which the original question was asked. In this case, you can see that the OP was in 2016. There are good chances that the person has solved his problem long time ago.
