WatchCam Reviews:

Great Little App by Shoshtrvls
Perfect balance between necessary features and simplicity - great for portraits and other tripod shots.

PebbleSnapper by Ex-torch_owner
Happy! Worked as instructed! Just one request, may you add video support??

Love the app. Kinda makes me feel like a secret agent to be able to take pictures at the push of a button on my watch! I Wish it could start and stop video recording though, that would make this app amazing!

Best iOS camera app for pebble by Freum
Easy to use, allows complete control of camera functions, perfect camera companion app.

Great app by Ike Clausen
This works great! Solves the " no self timer on iPhone" problem. Flash control and camera switching all works well.

Great App. Works exactly how it says. - by SDEVO619
I really like being able to shoot from my watch. Great for group shots where you can either use a tripod or just stand the camera on its side. Just wish my 4S has a better front facing camera. It would make this app even better, so you can see what the shot will look like before you take it, and get the better quality image. Even with the current front facing camera the shots came out great. Keep up the great work. Next up, let me control my Apple TV with this watch. Make it happen!!! Lol. I know it's not that easy. Just an idea.

What’s New

Version 3.0

o Updated for Pebble Time and Pebble OS 3.0
o Color camera preview

Legal fraud

Do not reward their laziness, incompetence, or greed by purchasing this alleged application. This application has been available in both the pebble and Apple stores for over two years, and it still does not function properly.

They have been collecting money from customers who in good faith assumed that this application had been repaired, and would function properly.

Instead of warning their consumers, they simply left a functionless app in the store in the hopes that upon discovering it's uselessness after purchase people would be too lazy to ask for their $.99 back.

Please, if this application did not work for you ask for your money back and right Apple requesting to have this application removed from the store until I can function properly on all supported platforms.

works, barely

to take a pic with this app you have to open it on your phone, open it on your pebble, connect your pebble by tapping on the phone app, and then you can take a picture with a pebble button. images are good quality, comparable to native camera as far as I can tell. Live preview on pebble time is monochrome, buggy, slow and low rez, basically useless.

this is the best app I could find for this pebble function. I wish I could perform this pebble function using only the pebble itself rather than having to open an app on my phone but this is almost as good.

Does not work

Should be zero stars. Worked ok when I first downloaded. The image on the watch was crap. But you could still remotely control the cam. Due to updates from both apple and Pebble and no updates from the developer, the app will crash if you try to use it.
