The Triggertrap Mobile app released earlier this year gave photographers the ability to use a smartphone or tablet connected to their camera, to trigger its shutter in a number of cool ways. Now a significant update also enables Wi-Fi triggering … on the condition you have two smart devices, one to use as a master and the other as a slave.

While the traditional Triggertrap set-up of a smartphone or tablet connected to a camera via a special dongle remains, an additional device can now be used to control the connected one via WiFi. While both the master and slave devices need to be connected to the same network, this can be a wireless hotspot running on the master.

The update not only means shutterbugs no longer need to be next to the camera they're shooting with, but also that multiple slave devices and cameras can be triggered at the same time. At the moment Android or iOS devices (running Triggertrap Mobile 1.1 or 1.5 respectively) can be used as slaves, but only iOS devices can be used in master mode – makers are working on this for an upcoming Android update.

Triggertrap Mobile 1.5 for iOS also brings Bluetooth triggering, more than 20 bug-fixes and a multitude of new language options. The Triggertrap Mobile iOS and Android apps are both available now from app stores.
