Ratings and Reviews
Great app - needs an update.
The teachers at my school use this app and love it. I definitely recommend it to teachers as a way to demonstrate concepts to students. IPadOS 13 seems to have caused an issue with how it interacts with the camera, however. It still works streaming but if you try to freeze the screen or insert a picture from the camera roll it goes black. Please fix it!
Great program, exactly what I was looking for. It does crash though and I would like to be able to stream video and pause video that is on the iPad itself. I have yet to try it out on my Apple TV. Also maybe the ability to stream video from iTouch or local network IP camera so that you not trying to capture video with the big iPad.
This has a ton of possible applications in education. The description said Education discounts, but I didn't see where or how to get one. That's OK, it looks like it will be worth the $10.00.
A pause button would be a MAJOR plus. If I am in the field grabbing video, the ability to pause and not edit like crazy when I get back, would be great. Or perhaps giving a student some video based feedback, again, a pause button would rocket this app into stardom.
Like I said, a ton of possibilities. Now it is time to play around with it more.
