If you find yourself snapping images on your smartphone on a regular basis, you’re probably always on the hunt for ways to enhance the experience. While there are a million and one apps out there for adding effects, cropping, highlighting, and generally manipulating images, a relatively new app in the form of WiFi Camera for iOS offers a feature we’ve yet to see from any other application.
It allows you to connect two devices up over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, using one as a remote control for the camera function of another. If, for example, you like taking group photos but don’t want to shoot blindly, use the front-facing camera, or leave one person out of the shot, then WiFi Camera has your back.
It’s more than just a remote button from which you shoot images, though. As is the case when you remote desktop your home computer from work, for example, you’ve almost full control over your subject device from your connected device, and as well as being able to heck out the camera view before picking our moment to take the shot, you can opt to save the full-resolution image on both devices.
Of course, you’ll need to have WiFi Camera running on both devices in question in order to enjoy the features of the app. Despite its name, it does work over Bluetooth as well as Wi-Fi, and works with any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or higher.
It will connect any iOS devices fitting the above criteria, (providing, of course, at least one of them has a camera), and even if you’re not a serial shooter, you might want to check this one out just for the fun of it. Given that it’s a freebie, there’s no risk on your part, and even though it’s a fairly new entry to Apple’s App Store, it’s as refined as they come.
