There are four main functions of the PogoCam app:
- View battery and storage status of PogoCam and the smart case
- Download photos to your phone or tablet
- Clear photos and videos off your smart case
- Adjust the alignment of photos
Once you install the app and open it, you’ll be walked through a simple step-by-step setup to pair the app with your smart case. To get a headstart on this, make sure your phone or tablet’s Bluetooth feature is turned on and open to discover new Bluetooth devices.
Once paired, the app will open to the Gallery (which is empty of course). Along the bottom of the app, you’ll see 3 simple menu items: Gallery, Smart Case, and Settings.
The first thing you’ll want to do is go to the Smart Case screen. Here, you’ll see if your case is successfully paired. On this screen, the app will display the battery status of PogoCam and Smart Case. It will also show you how many photos and videos are stored on the case. Below this information, is a big blue button that says:
Select photos and videos to download
Tap it. You’ll see a gallery with your photos and videos in it. Here you can select photos one-at-a-time (up to 20) to transfer to your phone via Bluetooth. Once you select a photo (or many), a blue button appears at the bottom of the screen. On the left, you’ll see “Download to Gallery.” On the right, “Delete.” Tap the Download side. The app will show you the progress of downloading your photos. Once downloaded, you can view them in the Gallery.
Note: The app limits you to 20 photos per Bluetooth transfer
If you have more than a couple dozen photos, we recommend transferring those over a wired connection. (Bluetooth is convenient but it can be a bit slow with a lot of files.)
Also Note: You will need to transfer videos with a wired connection.
Back on the Gallery screen, you’ll see a standard gallery of your photos. Tap on one. For each photo, you have three additional functions to choose from.
The garbage can deletes that single photo, as you might have guessed.
You’ve probably seen this everywhere. If you don’t know, it is the “Share” icon. Tap it to share this photo on any or all the social networks you would like. Tap it to email the photo; tap it to send it in a text message. Tap it to share however you would like.
This is the adjustment icon. There isn’t a lot of editing you can do in the PogoCam app. Most likely, you already edit your photos with filters on Instagram or titles on iMovie. We don’t want to limit how you edit your media, just like we don’t want to limit where you share it. So on the PogoCam app, the “Edit” feature is there to address one particular PogoCam feature: taking pictures from a camera attached to your head can result in some slightly tilted photos. Click this edit icon and slide the bar at the bottom to adjust the alignment of a photo. That’s it!
The Options screen is your Swiss Army knife to all things PogoCam. Firstly, it’s a shortcut to delete all the media on your smart case which is super helpful for cleaning house and getting ready for your next adventure.
Secondly, this is where you’ll find our Getting Started Guide, links to technical support resources, and Tips and Tricks for using PogoCam.
The app is designed just like all PogoCam products: to give you the maximum amount of freedom and options and the fewest limitations.
