REVIEWED: Snap Remote for smartphones

Hands-free selfies from this shutter release remote with a handy smartphone stand

Snap RemoteMuch better value than the Muku Shuttr comes the Snap Remote (£8.99), which adds a crucial second feature that now seems so obvious – a kickstand for a smartphone.

Hands-free selfies

Making selfie-taking an almost completely hands-free – and certainly a hassle-free – experience, the Snap Remote essentially does the same job as a bulky tripod by offering a tiny snap-off detachable phone stand.


Made by ThumbsUp! the Snap Remote is otherwise a simple wireless Bluetooth-connected camera shutter for smartphones and tablets, though it does require the use of its own app to work.

Watch battery-powered

Powered by a standard CR2032 watch battery, the Snap Remote has a keyring cutout, and works with all types of iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and any Android device, too.
