I use OBS to make videos and I had bought a web cam for it. But the image was not sharp and the biggest issue was that green screening in OBS was a nightmare. Getting a good result was extremely fickle requiring filter adjustment depending time of day and outside light coming in. I always assumed OBS chromakey filter just was not that good. After reading about this app I decided to give it a try. It took just minutes to set up and get a video feed. Wow! the picture from an iPhone really is a magnitude of order better than a good webcam! Then I decided to try the chromakey filter........as soon as I turned on the filter it was perfect! The default settings have a great image. No need to spend 5 minutes tweaking the filter settings! I really really did not want to spend 15 bucks for the App fearing it would not be any better than what I had with the webcam. But it turns out this was money well spent! Installation really was a breeze, I use a USB connection. Can’t speak for the WiFi connection. But it was very quick and simple and the improvements in image quality were huge!

I noticed some low reviews for this app, and I can only assume that this person has other issues that were unrelated to this app, and they jumped the gun. Trust me when I tell you... during the quarantine, I was forced into a position to learn (quickly) how to stream our worship service at Forks United Church of Christ in Stockertown, PA. I’m their A/V Tech as well as Music Director. I quickly discovered OBS, but was extremely disheartened by this app quality. I tried multiple webcams... and I mean decent ones. I even purchased a game capture device and tried using my Sony HD camcorder. It was noticeably better, but latency was an issue, and the video still lacked what I needed. This app is incredible. The iPhone cameras are SO much better than moderately priced webcam options. I love it so much, I purchased an iPhone 8 from eBay just to use as a second this app. Even at $200, it’s far better than any option in that price range. Here’s the best part... I ran into a slight technical issue, so I emailed Will. He was incredibly helpful and extremely nice. I love this app! Get it!
This app is great, especially because it offers hardwire connection via USB! There are other OBS solutions for iOS that use NDI over Ethernet, but this can quickly lead to bandwidth problems and force you to sacrifice stream quality. (I personally use a bunch of other many media protocols over Ethernet besides OBS so I am very happy that this app exists for a solid wired USB option.) Although the instructions advise to use Apple lightning cables, I have connected successfully via third-party cables and USB extension cords so you can really space cameras out around the room for a real production studio feel. The instructions also offer a disclaimer that iPhone models 5S and earlier may have encoding issues, but I have used the app successfully with 3 iPhone 5S’s simultaneously streaming at 1080p All around great app, bridges the gap between iOS cameras and broadcast software for a very low price! To achieve the same capability with enterprise-level iOS broadcast software costs hundreds of dollars a year in subscriptions. Keep up the great work guys!!!
I have tried several of the options out there, including paying for epoccam. None of them are as easy to use as this one. Yes it’s expensive, but the developer gets to choose what it costs. If you want it, you pay. If you don’t, walk away. This is also the only app that I could get to send 1080p from my phone to the mac. The other option I tried could not get obs to receive it that way. For people thinking you can use this to get obs to send your phones video to skype, why would you think that? This app is specifically for getting the video to obs. Obs to skype/zoom/etc is entirely different functionality, called virtual webcam. The devs of this have nothing to do with that. There is a plug-in for obs to serve as a virtual webcam. It’s not available for Mac, but currently being worked on to be brought in natively to obs. But it makes no sense to slam the developer of this because of a lack of that feature in obs.
The app works great overall. I’d love to see one possible feature developed though. During livestreams for my band we use 4 phones to give different views (one overview, one for each bandmate) but the view in each is a static field of view. It would be REALLY something if there was an extension of the app to allow each this app to randomly zoom in for closeups once in a while—just to give a bit more visual dynamics to the livestream. A 5 second zoom in for a closeup, then pull back out to full frame. We are playing so we can’t control the cameras—they are fixed frame. It would add a bit of dramatic flair to the footage if that feature was added. The controls would include speed of zoom, extent of zoom, and perhaps have it react to transients in the audio feed to go “monkeycam” when the music gets really frenetic. Maybe someone else will do this first in their app. I’d love yours to be the first to do so though!
