"I found WebCamera to be a useful app and plan to use it a lot in the future as a second camera for TUAW TV Live." --TUAW
Mobiola WebCamera is a great way to share what cannot be recorded with a built-in laptop camera, as it is wireless and can be easily moved around. Imagine sitting near the Eiffel Tower, and sharing this magic moment with your friend while giving a virtual tour of this famous landmark. With WebCamera, anything can be shared wirelessly in a simple and fun way.

WebCamera works with various messaging applications, just like a regular USB webcam. It also works with video production software such as Boinx TV, CamTwist, and Camtasia.

WebCamera captures video in three different resolutions: 192x144, 480x360, and 640х480. You may capture either individual frames or the whole video stream.

With the free WebCamera desktop application installed on a computer, WebCamera is plug-and-play ready.

Slow and poor quality. Even when I create a network on my Mac and connect my iPhone directly to it, the video quality is extremely poor. I can get better quality over a FaceTime call, and this isn't even traveling over the Internet. 1080p and even 720p is useless as the frame rate drops to about 3fps (and that's a pretty generous number). But worse still there is no USB functionality to make up for what's lacking in wifi. On top of that the desktop app is very buggy and has crashed several times in the first few minutes of using it. Don't waste the money. They only reason this deserves 2 stars is because the low resolutions, while being extremely poor quality, still have decent frame rates and it (barely) does what it's advertised. I really wish I could get my money back.

Don’t bother

Doesn’t even work period. I had to download the Mac app multiple times and i could not get it to work. Stated that it was the wrong version yet I downloaded from their site. No support for help for a paid app. Not sure how you sell an app that doesn’t work but someone should investigate.

Worked 100 % for me.

Maybe some people are just not that tech savvy, this app worked awesome for me.
