Re: iPad Dongle


Hi there @Iant123, I hope you're having a good day so far!

To upload the images through your iPad's mobile app, you would need to import the images into your camera roll first.

As an alternative, if you have the desktop app installed on a computer, you could use automatic desktop camera uploads by connecting the SD card to the computer.

Let me know if you have any other questions - thanks!
