What is Shuttr?
Shuttr is bluetooth remote shutter release for your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, iPad Mini, Samsung Galaxy S3, Notes and more high-end Android 4.0+ devices*.
Ever tried taking self-portrait with your smartphone but found that the view was always limited by your arm-length?
Ever tried to take a group photo but one guy is always missing in the picture?
Ever trying to take photo with kids but they never stay in front of the camera for more than 2 seconds?
Shuttr is designed to solve all these problem by resting in your keychain and allow you to take photo with yourself, your friends and your kids anytime you want.
What are the differences?
Shuttr is probably the most easy to use Remote Shutter for Smartphone ever invented.
1. It works both on iOS and Samsung S3, Notes 2.*
2. It works WITHOUT downloading or installing 3rd party camera app!*
3. At 6 mm thickness, the thinnest remote shuttr ever invented! So small that you can carry it as a keychain so that you capture every precious moments in your daily life.
*Important: Compatibility List
Shuttr works on all IOS 5.0+ devices (current IOS version is 6.1.2) with a camera on it. i.e. including iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad mini, iPad with Retina Display, iPod touch 4th generation or above.
Shuttr works with the camera app of iOS. You do NOT need to install any app. Just pair it up and it works right the way.
We tested the following handset to be working with Shuttr without the needs of additional camera app::
Samsung Galaxy S3, Notes 2, Notes 10.1. (Shuttr MAY NOT works with lower end or older Samsung model, including S2, Notes 1, S3 mini etc, we DO NOT recommend Shuttr to you in case you are using these models)
LG Nexus 4
Sony Xperia S (Works only with when our own Camera app installed)
**DO NOT RECOMMEND LIST:
Different Android smartphone makers can choose their own bluetooth chipset and modify the camera app on their own specification so ensuring compability is a much more difficult task.
We do NOT recommend HTC users buying Shuttr as HTC seems to have their own standard in remote shuttr.
Other android, there are quite a number of Android smartphone out there and it is impossible for us to test the compatibility of all of them. But we tested a couple of Lenovo and Xiaomi models and we unfortunately found that there were either pairing issues or application issue with Shuttr.
