    just got triggertrap mobile dongle for my em-5. how this thing suppose to work?

    i've connected it to my phone and i can see there is some connectivity. when the lcd goes dim from no interaction i press the big red button in the app the lcd becomes full bright, but there is no shutter release. what am i doing wrong here?

    i've set the camera to manual focus and my phone is nexus 5, so the android os is not an issue.

    thanks in advance.

    I never had a problem with it in the past.
    However I just "upgraded" to the latest version on my i-phone and now I get the same "nothing happens" as you do...

    In my case it was user error. I simply didn't have the connector all the way seated in the i-phone as the rubber case was interfering.
    After that a little camera icon shows up next to the phone icon and once that's selected everything works as expected.
