Title: DARLING PHOTO! Introduction: Smartphone Camera Remote Controller using Gear2 With a development of smartphone camera, instead of carrying a separate camera, people are using simple and light smartphone which is replacing camera roles. However, many people often face various difficulties and inconvenience when taking group or couple photos. For example, it is difficult to take full length photo with self-camera function and the user needs to ask someone else to take photo. To deal with this situation, we came up with an idea and realized DARLING PHOTO!. DARLING PHOTO! is a remote controller application enabling user to control smartphone camera using Gear 2. In order to utilize this Gear application (DARLING PHOTO!), it should be Android application compatible. User can use camera functions independently and also control camera using Gear 2 when connected with Gear 2 application. Moreover, through Bluetooth connection between smartphone and Gear 2, camera view in smartphone can be shared on Gear 2 in real-time allowing user to take photos with desired location and pose.

Advantages and Differences There are many smartphone remote controllers but the ones in the market are either big or providing only limited functions as well as user can't check the smartphone view. However, DARLING PHOTO! application allows user to share the smartphone camera view in real-time. By checking the view directly, user can control camera functions and easily take the photo they want.
