Imaging Edge offers instant image transfer from your camera to connected mobile devices while you're shooting, according to a press release. Images will transfer when a photographer uses the app's "Auto background transfer to Smartphone" feature.

Imaging Edge will replace Sony's PlayMemories Mobile app, which received dismal ratings for iOS.
