"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.

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.
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.
Works great! Does exactly what it says.
Here's my system:
- 2010 MacBook Pro 17 running OS X 10.6.8
- iPhone 4 running iOS 4.3.5 (8L1)
Installation was incredibly easy and worked perfectly with no stumbling points. It automatically detected the desktop software and was set up in seconds. I was able to see my video stream on my desktop in about a minute.
The frame rates at medium and high resolution are not fantastic (720p is just 2-3fps) but I imagine that has more to do with network speeds than anything else.
This is incredibly useful as a tool to see into tight spaces. With the ability to turn on the flash light while it's in operation, you can see if your keys really are behind the fridge, etc.
The only thing that could really use improvement is giving the Desktop software the ability to display the video steam at the resolution it's coming in at. The window is very small, even at 720p.
I have not tested this app with any other applications as I'll be using it as a diagnostic tool to perform timing adjustments on my old Porsche. It's really hard to see the timing marks deep in the engine bay, and I was looking for a way to put my phone in the engine bay and adjust the timing by watching my laptop screen. This will work perfectly.
All in all, does exactly what it's supposed to with a very simple interface. For a coupe dollars this is absolutely, completely worth it.
Thank you guys for making this app!
