mimoCam enables the use of the iPad or iPhone connected to a Mac via Lightning cable to work as an external camera for the live switching app mimoLive on the Mac. In contrast to other camera apps, mimoCam doesn't show controls on the screen, giving you a clear picture.

Double tap on the video switches from front to back camera and back.

mimoCam also wirelessly transmits device orientation data to mimoLive on the Mac to support the creation of video screencasts showing the device in 3D space.

Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Perfect for using your iPhone to add a camera to OBS

MimoCam does exactly what it says it does. You connect your iPhone via Lightning/USB to your computer and then it appears a second camera for programs like OBS - full screen, without the camera controls or face tracking. It keeps the phone from sleeping while it’s on, uses no additional drivers or software on your computer, and I’ve had zero issues. Thanks!

Complete waste of Money

Doesn’t work, won’t connect to the desktop app at all, feeling like I’ve been ripped off. I want a refund!!!

Hi, I'm sorry to hear that mimoCam doesn't meet your expectations. However, I suspect that there might be a misunderstanding of how it is supposed to work as it is not designed to connect to anything. Can you please contact
