We recently had an opportunity to review this wireless bluetooth selfie remote for iPhone and Android, and its selfie remote app, and it’s a great addition to your selfie-taking bag of tricks! And it does so much more than just selfie remote shutter control – you can switch between front and back cameras, zoom in and out, turn the flash on and off, even switch between photo and video! Of course, a selfie stick also allows you to hold your phone, with the remote, you need to prop it up somewhere or use a tripod. The best combination is one of each!
The GPEL Pebble Selfie Remote does all of these things, and more!
Then, after charging the Pebble (with the included USB cord), pair the remote with your phone (long press the power button to turn it on and pair it).

Once paired, you’re all set!
With the selfie remote in hand, you can control nearly all of your phone’s camera’s functions. You can zoom in and out, switch between front and rear cameras, choose between 3:4 and 1:1 aspect ratios for your pictures, switch to video mode, and turn the flash on and off.
But here is the coolest thing – or the sneakiest thing – ever.
The remote has a range of up to 30 feet. With this remote you can take pictures of – or shoot video of – someone or something without them ever realizing it. Just leave your phone near the thing you want to capture, and casually activate your camera with the remote.
Brilliant! Or devious. Or both!
You can check out and order the GPEL selfie remote on Amazon. As of the writing of this article, it’s on sale for just $24.99!
