Answer: 
After installing the Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility app on your iOS or Android smart device, start by turning on your COOLPIX S5200's Wi-Fi. Then go to your device's settings option and choose to connect to the camera's Wi-Fi SSID. Once your device shows as connected to the camera's Wi-Fi, open the Wireless Mobile Utility app. If the app does not open on the menu screen, tap "Top" until the menu screen is displayed, then choose an option from the menu to connect. If you continue to encounter issues please contact Nikon Support: http://support.nikonusa.com.
