SnapBridge is a picture viewer app developed by Nikon that can be exclusively used with Nikon cameras only. The app allows you to view the pictures you click with your camera instantly on your smart. All you need to do is pair the app with your camera and adjust the camera’s setting to enable you to view the photos on another device. You can also download the photos that you wish to keep in your phone’s gallery.
