merge irista and image gateway so don't need both apps
at the moment you need image gateway to set up your camera web services and you can upload images to it. you can the use it to set up irista to upload images to.
if they were integrated you would only need one app to set up your camera and have your images stored
Irista is superior to the Image Gateway Online Photo Album in every possible way. Right now in the US, I have the option to sync my Canon camera with the Image Gateway Online Photo Album, but not Irista. I emailed technical support, and they said Irista was only for the UK.
The fact that Irista solicits customer feedback is telling and reflects the quality of the product. It seems every other division at Canon actively discourages customer feedback.
