Triggertrap Mobile App is Now Free for iOS and Android

Triggertrap

The Triggertrap app that turns your iPhone, iPad or Android device into a remote trigger for your camera is now free. Previously, it was $4.99; however, it will be free at least through the holiday season. (Note that there is a limited-feature “free version” available, but this is the premium version that has now been made free.)

You need a $25 cable to make it work with your DSLR, but it does a whole lot more than a standard cable release remote for that price. I’ve used it with my Canon 5D Mark II and it works very well. Additionally, if you don’t get the dongle, some of the modes (like timelapse) will work with the iPhone’s built-in camera. So, it’s worth having for free anyway.

The Triggertrap apps is available for iOS on the iTunes App Store, and available for Android on the Google Play Store.

Below are some of the triggering methods you can use with Triggertrap. [Read more...]

PostalPix Now Available for Android

PostalPix, the app that lets you order prints from your phone’s camera roll, is now available for Android. I reviewed PostalPix for the iPhone last month and found it to be an excellent and affordable way to get quality prints from your phone.

The print and shipping prices are more than fair, and the print quality is great. Now all you Android users have no excuse to miss out on physical prints for all your great instagram shots.

You can find PostalPix here on the Google Play Store.
