WiFi Camera makes a great remote-photography tool! Set up one device to take a group photo, and use the other as a remote!
WiFi Camera will allow you to connect two iOS devices wirelessly. You will be able to receive and transmit the camera view with the other device, in addition to sending photo capture requests, which will take a full-resolution photo on the receiving device, transfer it to the requesting device, and save the photo on both devices.
Simply download WiFi Camera, install and run it on two devices or more, and it works like a charm! NOTE: You need to install and run WiFi Camera on two devices, one of which should have a camera.
- Works on all iPhones, iPads, iPod Touches! (iOS 7.0+)
- Fast image streaming
- WiFi or Bluetooth connection
- Picture-in-picture view of what is being transmitted
- Beautiful, intuitive interface
- One-touch connect & disconnect
- Interface rotates with the device
- Facetime-like interface
It is possible that your wireless network does not support the Bonjour Networking protocol that WiFi Camera utilizes. You should make sure that both devices are successfully connected to the same wireless network and that there is successful connectivity. If this does not work, it is recommended that bluetooth be turned on for both devices.

Find a wishing well instead !
Seriously, find a wishing well and at least get a wish for your dollar. I'm aware that a dollar doesn't buy much today but this app should be taken down. The lag between my iPad and iPhone is horrible as in someone moves in the picture and it's a full count of 5 before you see them move on receiving device. The quality of video is grainy and very blurry. It stores the pictures in its app so it's a two step process to get them somewhere to prepare to share. Oh and you better be quick, because with wifi and Bluetooth on your battery is going to die fast. And it takes both wifi and Bluetooth to operate this app! No wifi, no app. Trust me, a patch cord between the two devices would be awesome to replace this app. Sincerely, unsatisfied.
Well worth the money
Couldn't get it to connect at first because I thought the nearby device detected would appear below the words "searching for device". Then realized that the detected devices were listed at the top of the screen. After tapping the device at the top of the screen connection was immediate between my two iphones. Each iphone sees the other iphone's camera along with a small rectangle of it own camera. Instructions for using the app could be included with the app but is not. Would have precluded my confusion concerning the detected device issue. Over all quality is very good. Highly recommended.
A waste of $.99
I bought this app so I could use the remote to turn on and off my iPad video camera from my iPhone. They're both on the same Wi-Fi network and they're both on Bluetooth. I had them sitting next to each other and they still wouldn't connect. I emailed the designer of the app two times with no response. Avoid!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
