Fujifilm promised back in April that the Android version of its Fujifilm Camera Remote app would be available in May. Now, with only a few days to spare, it fulfilled its promise, releasing version 4.0.0 on the Google Play Store.

Like the iOS version, the new Android version features an updated user interface and many other features designed to streamline the remote capture process.

The new interface sheds wasted space and is specifically designed to make use of smartphones with larger displays. Additionally, Fujifilm has simplified the pairing process and added a new 'Album' feature, making it easier to sort through images transferred to the device. Other improvements include support for new cameras and numerous bug fixes.

Below is a list of features the Fujifilm Camera Remote app provides, according to the app's description:

  • Transferring images and movies to a Smartphone
  • Browsing the Camera from a Smartphone
  • Downloading Location Data from a Smartphone
  • Shooting Images by Remote Control(*)
  • Easily transfer pictures from the cameras that offer Bluetooth capability.
  • Synchronizing "date and time" and/or "location information" with the cameras that offers Bluetooth capability
  • Firmware update via a Smartphone to the cameras that offers Bluetooth capability.

    *How to change the setting depends on your camera.
