REVIEWED: Muku Shuttr for smartphones

Remote smartphone shutter release aids travel selfies and phoneography

Holding a phone in the correct position while simultaneously looking into the camera lens and pressing the touchscreen shutter isn’t easy. However, the days of awkward phone holding are gone if you stream-line the selfie process with a remote control.

No app required

In a thankfully completely app-less concept, the Muku Shuttr [] (£49.95) selfie remote is about the size of a USB thumbdrive. A small, lightweight remote shutter release that connects easily to both Android and iOS devices via Bluetooth, it pairs with a smartphone immediately and works right away. Just open the normal camera app on the smartphone, and instead of fumbling for the touchscreen shutter button, use the button on the Muku Shuttr.

Easy to travel with

Happily the Muku Shuttr includes a handy cutout for hanging it to a keyring. Guaranteed to work with any iPhone/iPad/iPod touch, Samsung S4, S3, Notes 3, Notes 2, Notes 10.1, Nexus 4, 5, 7 and LG G2, G PRO, G Flex, HTC New One and the Sony Xperia Z – and anything with Bluetooth.
