So it doesn't work on iOS and it's crippled on Android. 9 out of 10 then.

Doesn't work on iOS? Yes it does, and quite well.

As to Android:
1) They're working on it and will be adding the iOS features soon.
2) Even 'crippled' it's still a functional, advanced trigger that's cheaper than alternatives.

Cheaper and more flexible than most so yes, 9 out of 10 :)

So you have quietly edited your original version, which did say
"doesn't work" on EU volume-limited iPhones. Not sure why you removed
that text, but that was the basis of my original comment. Perhaps you
could clarify whether or not trigger-trap works successfully on EU
volume-limited iPhones?

Could you also clarify "when not connected to an external camera using the dongle, you can still use them to control the phone/tablet’s own integrated camera" - I have not found this to work on my Galaxy Note 1. When you say "you can still use them [plural]" are you suggesting that to control the phone's own camera you nevertheless still require the dongle in addition to the app?

Sorry didn't realise you had posted before that edit (probably due to our new commenting system delaying your comment) and that's what you were referring to as you mentioned "iOS" rather than the hardware.

That restriction applied to the original version of the Triggertrap dongle which is no longer being sold (this is V2) and reference to it was erroneously left in, which is why it was removed from the review shortly after posting. Hope that clears things up and apologies about any confusion.

Thanks, very helpful. What about the part where you say that the app can be used to control the camera of the mobile phone itself? I can't seem to make that happen (on Android).

I coded PyTt, a tiny Python module that let one control a Triggertrap Mobile dongle from just about any system: Windows, Linux, OS X, even a from a Raspberry Pi: http://mark0.net/code-pytt-e.h...
