AirSnap allows users to take pictures & videos remotely by pairing iOS devices

Global Delight, the iOS and Mac app subsidiary of the Udupi-based mobile app development company Robosoft, has released an updated version of its Camera Plus iOS app to enable users to capture photos and videos remotely from their iOS device running on iOS 7 or later.

Dubbed as AirSnap, the app allows users to pair two iOS devices via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Once paired, users can attribute one device as the capture device and the other as the remote trigger. The app will also allow users to see instant previews on the trigger device, switch between front and rear cameras and control flash usage among others.


Coinciding with this feature launch, the company has also made Camera Plus as an universal app, thereby adding support for iPad. This essentially means that users can buy the app once and use it across all their iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and iPad Mini). The app is currently available at $0.99 on the iTunes App store.

That being said, the iPad version does bring in some extra features like an adjustable floating capture bar which can be repositioned depending on the user’s palm size and a new soft flash feature, since there is no camera flash on the tablet. It also offers support for 720p video recording. [Video Demo]

Camera Plus claims to have registered around 25 million downloads until now and has about 9 million active users, as per a TechCrunch report.

Medianama Take

While the feature is sadly restricted to users who have iOS devices, we feel this feature can come in quite handy while taking group pictures, since there will be no hassles of finding a third party person to click the picture or worrying about whether the camera has the right angle or not while taking self-timed shots. However, it’s worth noting that several Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras with Wi-Fi capabilities can be similarly triggered using mobile apps.

It will be interesting to see where Global Delights goes from here with AirSnap, since we feel this can be particularly be more useful on wearable devices. For instance, imagine the possibility of taking pictures remotely from your smartwatch or wearable bands.
