Connecting Pentax K30 to Android phone

Hi I read this post today and I thought and would be a great idea. The only problem the app that is need can only be used with cannon cameras. It would be interesting if more of us Pentax users pester to get a app made that could be used with our Pentax cameras.

I connect mine wirelessly with a PQI Air card.

Great for quickly sending photos.

I think that Pentax should, as a priority, provide an interface and/or software for an Android and IOS phone/tablet interface similar to that available for Canon, in order to increase their market share.
When I was making the decision to buy a Conon or a Pentax, I initially thought of getting the Canon and one of the major points was the ability to use my Nexus tablet to control it. The reason I eventually bought the Pentax was that I could use my old Pentax lenses from my ME Super in a better way han using the Canon adaptor. One other bone of contention was the fixed screen on the Pentax as opposed to the touch control articulated screen on the Canon.
I am sure that many people would be making the same judgements and probably coming down on the other side.
By providing the interface/software they would introduce a "WOW" factor, without having to make any hardware changes which would surely help sales.

+1 on that!
I have to admit, I was a bit jealous at my canon friend when see him take a very low angle photo using iphone to control his camera and check live view. I wish it was an app like that to control my K5 on a mobile devices.
