It’s free, and will probably be good advertising for the GorillaPod, and fortunately you can use it even whether you don’t own (or use) a GorillaPod. The functions of that app are more geared towards tripod scenarios (obviously) and you’ll get functions like grid lines, press-anywhere shutter release, self-timer and many more.
