This update includes several upgrades to ioShutterSLR - the original SLR control for iOS.

Great new feature! On devices with a flash, you can now set the flash to fire just before your camera shoots, in the Timer function settings. Super useful so you know just when to hit the right pose!

Here are the other things that you can look forward to:

- a new, easier intro tutorial
- new graphics for iOS7
- updated graphics for Retina and iPad
- full iPhone5 and iPod Touch screen sizes (these took a little longer than we planned)
- several functionality improvements
- new improved subscription system
- several background improvements

  • Great stuff!

    by 8128mm

    I really enjoy this app! Like it says all over the store and website, you need to buy the cable first. The price for the full set up of cable and app is well worth the money. I was actually pretty surprised to see so many people complaining in the apple store and app store. $80 all together to connect my phone to my camera? DONE AND DONE! As some others have mentioned, the app is really easy to use and i've been having a blast with it. It is the perfect addition for any amatuer or pro photographer that's using an apple product. Get it now

  • Great App but one flaw - UPDATED

    by Tommyboy62

    WORKS FINE NOW ON MY IPOD GEN 5. TECH SUPPORT DID A GREAT JOB OF SOLVING MY ISSUES. THX. I downloaded both the pro and lite versions of the app. I like them both however there seems to be a bug in the pro version. The lapse function in the pro version does not work on an iPod touch (5th generation). The counter just ticks back and forth by one second. The preset lapse function in the lite version works fine on the iPod Touch. All seems to be fine in both versions on the iPhone 4s and the iPad (3).

  • Great freaking idea!!!

    by BerlinGreen

    Kudos to the creators of this app! As an avid photographer this handy app works with the cable (a bit pricy in my opinion but necessary!) to control my lovely Canon 5D and take time lapse and long exposures to my hearts content!!!

  • Great Contoller

    by ISOflash

    The app along with the cable works well and is well worth the price if you have a need for the timer and elapse features. The app has a clean, intuitive interface and does everything expected. At first the app would not trigger the camera but after several attempts a message window popped up indicating that the volume on the phone was too low. Turning the iPhone’s volume up resolved the problem. Reading other reviews and re-reading the Description of the app on iTunes I see that it is obvious that the operation of the “sound trigger” and “movement trigger” needs to be made clearer. The price of the cable is a little overpriced but not outrageous for a new product that as far as I know doesn’t have any competition. I believe with use I will find the cable is too short otherwise it is great.

  • Excellent DSLR Camera Remote

    by UncleDannie

    This app is useless UNLESS you own the corresponding cable that hooks up the iPhone/iPad to specified DSLR cameras. With the cable, then the Pro version is well worth the money, as it offers many additional layers of tweaking and refinements over the free version. As an amateur photographer, this is infinitely more affordable then the $150 Canon Intervalometer that only does half of this app, without having to carry another piece of electronic hardware and cables. I love it!

  • Not too bad

    by babanoury

    Updated, you need to focus first with the time-lapse mode, otherwise the app just goes into a loop. But once pre-focused, everything works as advertised. Could be made a bit clear in the online documentation.

  • Nothing works

    by Y not straight

    Spent the 10 buck and received nothing Every function requires more
