A free application is available on Google Play named Theta ActionPlus+. This application allows Ricoh Theta camera to use interval shutter-release (Time-Lapse) and action shutter-release function. In other word, when you jump or turn motion with a smart phone, the Theta Camera’s remote-shutter is pushed automatically.

Here is a great result made by Mohammed Attef:

    We did a timelapse with the Theta for their product launch.

    Thanks guys. Was really infuriating it wasn’t in the standard software, especially as there was the timelapse (mentioned by Phil) on their site! It seems such a simple and obvious feature to have included. Anyway, we ended up opening up our camera and using an external intervalometer. The problem we have now is that we can only go as long as one charge as when you power the camera via the USB socket, it won’t take images. Does anyone have a way around this?

    Phil – how did you shoot your timelapse?

    Thanks,

    Andy

    One problem, this app is only for Andriod users.
    Could someone make this for the iPhone?
