Triggertrap - Creative ways of triggering your camera. The Triggertrap Mobile app has a heap of sensors to trigger your camera in exciting ways and a range of tools to create beautiful timelapses.

Triggertrap Mobile’s sensor modes are configurable so you can get trigger happy with your camera - any way you like! Triggertrap Mobile enables extreme exposure control, and you can push the limits of HDR photography.

IMPORTANT! Triggertrap requires the Triggertrap Mobile Dongle to connect your camera to your device!

Here are all the ways you can get triggering:

Sensor modes:
• Sound sensor - clap, whistle or tap
• Vibration sensor - vibrations and earthquakes
• Motion sensor - detects movement. Catch people with their hand in the cookie jar!
• Peekaboo - facial recognition

Timelapse modes:
• Timelapse - travel through time
• TimeWarp - timelapse with acceleration
• DistanceLapse - perfect for road trips
• Bramping - bulb ramping timelapse to keep your exposure smooth
• Star Trail mode - extreme exposure control to create stunning images of the night sky

HDR modes:
• LE HDR - Long exposure HDR sets with up to 19 exposures
• LE HDR Timelapse - create timelapses with all the detail of HDR

Along with all of these, there are a variety of other cable release modes, including Simple Cable Release, Self Timer and Press and Lock options, and timed exposures up to 100 hours long! We also have a handy Solar Calculator to find out the sunrise and sunset times wherever you are, and an ND Calculator to ensure your exposures are just the right length when using neutral density filters.

Long Exposure HDR (LE-HDR) mode supports shutter speeds from several hours down to 1/15th second, and can do up to 19 bracketed shots with 1/3, 1/2, 1 or 2 EV steps.

What’s New

Version 4.1.9

Updated for iOS 13, and Dark Mode.

It's old news to us, but it seems that the rest of the world has caught-on - using a bright display in dim light hurts your eyes! We knew that years ago, and we also realized that the backlight of your iPhone can sometimes give off unnecessary light affecting the photo you're trying to take. Because of this, we introduced Night Mode - a setting to change the colors and theme of the app.

With the introduction of Dark Mode in iOS 13, we've updated our Night Mode to work with the system settings. Now, if you have Dark Mode enabled Triggertrap Mobile will automatically adapt to choose the correct theme.

Enjoy ~ Alex & Ross.

Thanks for keeping this alive

I’m able to open it on my iPhone X with no problem. I’ll have to run it through the different modes for a better eval, but thanks for making the effort to keep this app working. I still have the dongle so it will be nice to use again.

Excellent App

We have used nearly every feature in this app with the TriggerTrap Dongle, TriggerTrap flash adapter, and Canon cameras.

We have been able to catch pellets in mid-air as they exit a water balloon, photograph multiple angles at the same moment of a balloon bursting from a pellet, the HDR settings, time-lapse, and more.

I have contacted TriggerTrap support asking for specific information regarding actual flash delay on my specific phone, the iPhone 6+. A response came immediately stating they would check into it and then a day later I had the average durations with airplane mode enabled and disabled. Really can't beat that level of service.

We have used the TriggerTrap flash adapter with Yongnuo flashes and triggers without issue.

I highly recommend this app and accessories for your photographic needs.

Works with iPhone 13 Pro

Just use the lightning to headphone adapter. The triggertrap with the attached cable plugs into it.

I had it backwards using the small cable extension to headphone cable.

I just wish this app was updated so we can use the iPhone camera so we can use external flash. I’d love to set the iso, shutter, aperture on the iPhone app and connect it with an external flash. Maybe use the slow motion video to determine the sync delay so when the app fires, it captures the flash!

I’m sure more triggers would sell if that was possible!!!
