Ratings and Reviews
Recording not working.
Even though the record function isn’t working, I am still giving this 5 stars. Extremely stable app, easy, simple, focus lock, multiple destinations, for free! Can’t get any better.
I noticed the app doesn’t ask for permission to access photos... maybe this is why it isn’t recording to the camera roll? (Or maybe I am doing something wrong)
Exactly what I needed
I've started streaming recently and have used this app 3 times for for up to 4 hours at a time with no issues. Pinch and zoom works well and I'm able to change the resolution through the app. Solid
I use this 2-4 times a week for my streaming site lyfstreams. It’s works amazingly. We use this broadcaster specially for our site. Multiple girls use it. User friendly.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
