Sony NEX-5 iPhone Remote Shutter App

bikr posted a proof of concept for Apple for the upcoming Sony NEX-5 remote shutter release app for the Apple iPhone.
The App sends the Sony NEX-5 an IR signal through a transmitter connected to the iPhone. Two shutter release signals can be sent, immediate release and with a 2 second delay. The Sony NEX-5 remote below has the same capability.

The Sony NEX-5 iPhone Remote Shutter App should also be able to control other Sony Alpha cameras with IR receivers. The NexRemote App will be in the iPhone App Store soon.

A suggestion would be to make it an intervalometer App for time lapse photography.
