Simple, yet Amazing

Pearl works exactly as expected. When you click the icon it pops up a neat little circle that shows your face so you can see yourself. Pearl is something that you might not think you will need but will end up using at some point throughout the day. This is a must-have app for meetings. Just when I thought things couldn't get better, Pearl also does not collect your personal data, unlike other related apps. Overall a fantastic app, keep up the fantastic work!

So good they should charge for it

Works great for recoring videos of screen captures -- does not tax the processor causing the fan to kick-in (making background noise on your videos).

Tip: you CAN exand the window. Just hover your mouse pointer over the BOTTOM edge of the circle. The only place that the expansion works is at the BOTTOM edge (6 o'clock position) -- left, right and top edge do not work. I can't find any documentation for this aside from acknowledging that it can be done. The developer should put this as a menu item to give instructions.

Probably the best app in the Mac App Store

Please never change. the most BAMF app out there. I use this for face overlay in video tutorials. simple and clean also allows you to keep in front of all apps. One feature I would request is the ability to scale video window size. Thank you!
