It's OK, but in summary: it runs your phone battery down, it's not 100% reliable in connecting and maintaining a connection (in my experience, and it always fails just at the critical moment as the dawn light is perfect!), and it's much less easy to use in cold and wet conditions since you have to take your gloves off to use the phone screen (or, at least, take your fingers out of your mittens.

The Canon wired remote is worth getting to avoid these issues, at a very fair price IMHO.
