Comments and Reviews from users:

Amy Capps: “I have used this app for YEARS. I kept using it every time they added more and more ads to the Basic membership... (I know they've got bills to pay!) But now I'm expected to upgrade just to replay my events? I DON'T THINK SO. I was perfectly happy with the Basic membership until now. You can hardly call it "Basic" if you have to pay for one of the most important features. I'm not gambling away my safety just because this company got greedy. See ya'!” – 2/5 in Play Store

Justin Vining: “this app used to be 4 or 5 out of 5. the free version with ads and limitations was acceptable. now its beyond ridiculous. it's unfortunately now nearly completly locked down. its clear the compamy only cares about the bottom line, not about service or product. this app was approachable as a cheap or free way to do basic monitoring (and reuse/recylcle old phones!). now it's more cost effective to buy other products and services that dont have limitations and dont require a subscription...” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Every time I press start server it shows my camera for a second and the screen goes black. If I don't click anything it force closes in about 10 seconds. If I tap the screen it puts me on a version of Google search but when I enter the IP address it pops up search results for the numbers rather than the proper page. When I go to Google manually and do it the page will not load and says error because it "took too long to load". It worked fine the first two times I tried it and now this. Not sure what happened. Help? Edit: Thank You this helped with the black screen and false Google page but the ap still force closes every time 30 seconds after "start server".” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Works like charm. If you have problems, try not to install any plugin for a moment or find out what they really do. Make sure you give the app permission to overlay. While streaming, connect to the same wifi with your laptop. Personally, I have an issue where the screen goes black after the stream starts. Just tap the screen, everything goes back normally.

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Lots of people giving low ratings while missing the point. It will of course have some lag, phones aren't designed to be straight up webcams. It serves its purpose, and it serves it well. The one minor complaint I have is the ad system to get HD video doesn't work, it's a Facebook ad that is not a video and does not ever end on its own without closing it (which of course denies the HD). Was looking for a good alternative to my webcam for streaming, but this will not be it due to lag. Still a great concept though, maybe as a secondary camera for another purpose.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “The app is working ok on Windows 10 x64. The lag is small for me, no problem at all. I could see the video in their Windows client, but I could not make it work as a virtual webcam. I tried it with Google Hangouts (both Firefox and Chrome) and OBS (open broadcaster softwave) 22.0.2. I would buy it, if it worked with them too.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Cons May drain phone's battery quickly. Requires a stable Wi-Fi connection.

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Many good qualities with one major flaw. A little tricky to set up the USB connection. Of the USB protocols only tethering and MIDI will make the windows and android side recognize a connection is made. Image quality is great with almost no latency. However windows does not recognize the device as being a camera, so it will not allow usage in Skype or video conferencing.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Steve Schulz: “There's no features list for the pro version before purchase. I purchased it on a whim in hopes that it might be able to record over Wi-Fi in the background, since extensive Googling returned no information on that, nor did checking the in-app purchase features list. Which isn't to say it wasn't worth purchasing, since it has the lowest latency with the highest quality than I can see. But being unable to capture the camera in the background is a dealbreaker I wish I had known about. Word to the wise, Iriun: list the features that come with the Pro purchase.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “This does allow you to use your cell phone as a webcam and it does that well. On my S9+ the picture was great. However, the problem is audio. Even with a hard wired connection between camera and PC there was a serious delay between the sound and video with the sound lagging the video by over 1/2 second. I tried VSC with no change. Apparently the way sound and video are processes aren't synced. This is particularly odd because the sound processing is much less CPU intensive than the video. The actual video delay wasn't too bad, visible but OK. However with the sound delayed so far it really wasn't usable on Zoom. If the authors ever fix this to really do lip sync, it would be excellent.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I'm using my old Samsung S7 Active cell phone as a webcam on my Windows 7 PC to join my classroom on Zoom. Your app seems to be the only one that will use my USB cord to turn my phone into a webcam. I am happy I found your app. But I am having some problems. I followed the instructions and while testing it in the Zoom portal, I was able to get it to work through the USB cable, and seemed to work great. Then I tried to test on a real meeting through Zoom by calling my husband in the next room. But Bam! iVCam said my trial period was over and I could only use the lower video specs and fram rate. How long is your trial period? 20 minutes? I barely got to see how it looks with all the choices. There is a lot of lag so the audio is out of sync, and the video is blurry. Is that because I don't have the right options available because I need to purchase the app? or is this the best that the app can do? I really need a longer trial period to know if I want to buy this app.” – 3/5 in Play Store

And I tried every bit of software that I could find. It worked fine on my PCs and my iMac. Then I found this one... WOW !! All I had to do was plug it in and it came up with perfect images, first time, every time. Stills, videos and even motion detection all works perfectly.

Comments and Reviews from users:

GTC: “Someone said - I wish it had audio too. It does - LOL When you're in OBS, on the Droidcam OBS source settings screen, below where you choose the device and hit activate, check the box to enable audio. (To get this to show up, I have found that you need to click activate then deactivate. The check boxes aren't there before you hit deactivate at least once. (at least on Win64 OBS 26.02) The device's mic that's connected should now be an available audio source to capture in OBS. This is truly a great app - the best on the market for capturing from an Android phone. I especially like also that the device continues to capture with the screen off, even on the free, watermarked version. This helps immensely to keep a phone from overheating.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Moe's Klipz: “So far so good. I am just getting into it. I'm overall happy with it other then control options. Just wish it was a little more in depth. I use this on a galaxy s20 in conjunction with streamlabs OBS. Works great with no issues. I am just getting into fine tuning and is why its 4 stars not 5 from me. All in all I would say is a good buy for pro version.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I like this app & it has a lot of potential but it's glitchy. The settings don't stick & I have to keep resetting them often. The motion sensitivity will NOT stay as I set it. I'll lower it, go back to the previous screen, go immediately back into the sensitivity setting & it's right back up where it was before I lowered it. Very annoying since EVERY movement sets it off & I end up with a TON of videos (& notifications) . I look forward to fixes because I'm keeping it.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Works like it said. Not absolutely feature complete and it is defeatable any number of ways by a patient, determined opponent of average intelligence if you're trying to record proof or evidence of wrong-doing but in all, a good start.

I have even tried reinstalling the app. it is very annoying and inefficient because that's the main reason I used it is so when I'm not home I can monitor the house.

Comments and Reviews from users:

Allen Lancing: “Please add support for dimming or turning off the screen while the app is running. This kills my battery and will eventually lead to burn in as the screen faces several powerful LED lights while streaming. Updated, as long as the dev keeps their word on fixing this, this is a great app and has zero delay between this and the xsplit software, keep the wifi close and you're good. On Droid Cam there is a slight delay.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Claudio McWidmer: “Pretty ok for a start. Missing a few features compared to competitors though: 1. Edit app settings on pc 2. Start/Stop on lockscreen (using a trashed phone with a mounted selfie stick, it's cumbersome to always start the app on the phone itself as it's not running 24/7) 3. More Stream quality controls such as fps & resolution. 4. Zoom & tilt options (again controllable by pc) 5. USB Mode without wifi enabled 6. Latency maybe? Vcam is top notch though, keep up the good work.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Freeman Hyzer: “This would be perfect if the camera button and mic could be hidden when audio is running when the phone is rotated. It seems to always show and gets in the way of the video feed.” – 4/5 in Play Store

William Rust: “Downloaded it, plugged in the endoscope and it worked. Not really a high bar but it is in stark contrast with the last two apps that I downloaded that didn't work. Also like the fact that it doesn't share info with third parties; the other ones I looked at do ☹️.” – 5/5 in Play Store
