Phone of remote for k-3?

My friend has a Cannon that he can use his phone as the remote with. Is that same capability available with the K-3, when using the proper SD card?

See here:

It has to be this exact card:

Also if you have Infrared (IR) capable phone like some HTC / Samsung (like 4s), you can trigger shutter from apps like "DSLR Remote". Which can be handy.

True - if all he wants is remote triggering. The FluCard adds remote live view, tethering, and wireless file transfer.
