I have a sneaky suspicion that you need to set the phone as hotspot to use the camera and not as someone suggested ... setup the camera as hotspot.

The smartphone interaction features of the 5R and 6 are used by connecting the phone to the camera's own wifi network. (The camera creates a hotspot)

It is a pretty silly oversight that the app can't be used with bulb mode.

Any more silly than the fact the app will NOT take RAW, only jpg?

Or that the app will not allow the starting and stopping of video recording, or access to the camera's menus?

Very poorly thought out and poorly implemented app.
