    The best way to release the shutter for steadier photographing is to use a mini tripod and to use the increase volume button on Apple’s Earpods when they are connected to an iPhone. This process allows the use to remove his/her hands from the iPhone, and this is very similar to using a cable release on an SLR.

      Or better yet, use the self timer. Slow Shutter Cam had one that goes up to ten seconds. If there is a breeze in the air, there’s a chance of the cord from the headphones blowing around and even the slightest movement of the phone can ruin the chances of a tack sharp image in Slow Shutter.
