Ratings and Reviews
I really liked the app, but!!
Like the headline says. I really liked the app. Very responsive. Good quality of video. Although, I would recommend good lighting to improve the quality of the white balance and light capture. I was streaming out of the batt I’m 1080pm using OBS with two cameras (phones). Computer app was working flawlessly. I really like it and will continue using it. The down side here and the reason I don’t give 5 stars is related to the payment. I paid the 9.99 full version. Based on the information here. This app is compatible with family sharing. Meaning that I should not have to pay 9.99 for each device as long as they are under my family sharing. I would restore the purchase but, but still get the ads and watermark. I had to pay an extra 9.99 for it to go away on my other iCloud account. So that is already 20$ dollars. The only reason I paid it. Is because it is a fraction of the price of a good webcam or digital camera.
Still you get the quality. I would say it is even better. Lots of things can be done with it. The app does what it promises. It is a good one to use and easy. I recommend it.

Sorry but Apple doesn't support family sharing for in-app purchases...
Best webcam software for Windows users!
After trying out other webcam programs, I found the features and quality on iVCam to be the best. I use an iPhone 11 clamped to my monitor with a Smartrig multifunctional clamp, smartphone mount and ring light and it blows away my Logitech C922 in image quality. I get up to 4K 60 frames video with excellent low light performance.
You can use iVCam with multiple devices which EpocCam will charge you extra for and I’ve found the latency to be much better than NDI HX Camera which is a $20 app. It is also the only app I found that allows you to use the mouse wheel or keyboard keys to control zoom in/out. This is a great convenience when you want to size yourself in a screen or crop out edges of a green screen without having to reach around a mounted iPhone to pinch and zoom on a tiny screen that is facing away from you when using the better rear camera lenses.
I tried a lot of demos of these apps and finally bought the full version of iVCam and feel it’s maybe the best $10 I’ve spent on an app. If you’re a Windows user with an iPhone that you can spare during web calls then you already have a better webcam than most of the dedicated ones out there that are scarce and/or over-priced during these work-from-home times. This is frankly a no-brainer.
Pretty good, but a little secretive
I have only used it for a couple hours, but it seems to work with OBS. I paid for it, but there are still pop ups. Stopped letting me change camera lenses until I left a review. I have a good internet connection and router so it can stream 1080p 30fps well, but there seems to be a slight lag (expected - no sweat). About the same amount of lag over USB.
Update: Trial expired for the PC Client so it only works in SD and with a watermark. The app plus the client is more expensive than Camera for OBS. It’s not a bad app, but they weren’t upfront about this and I needed it mainly for OBS. Generally wouldn’t recommend because of this.
Update2: Realized $16 to use my existing phone as a better webcam than a $100 Logitech USB webcam isn’t a bad deal, especially after seeing the competition’s reviews. I would give this 5 stars but they should have been more upfront about the double purchase ($8 app plus full ad-free $8 client).
