EpocCam Webcamera for Computer App User Reviews & Comments

GoodUsing my iPhone to connect to Citrix Jabber or Microsoft Teams provides a much better picture than using the Microsoft webcam that I got from work. Setting up didn’t work as smooth as I expected it. The connection didn’t work first but then all of a sudden it worked. I found the review pop-up already at the beginning VERY annoying! So I gave it first a one-star rating because at that time the connection didn’t work. The colored backgrounds are not satisfying at all. The cam can only be used horizontally. I wish it worked vertically too, maybe showing a square picture with black bars on the sides. This would be helpful. But in general it is a good app once it is running and connected..Version: 2020.1

Been an EpocCam user for......about ten seconds now. Since they require a review to use the phone’s front camera, I am submitting this review. So far, the app purchase went exceedingly well as they took my money with no issues at all! That was pretty cool. Then I opened the app and ten seconds later, here we are... so based on past relationships, I wonder if this is a warning sign. Is this app going to be a needy app, constantly needing reassurance? Will it become bitter and vindictive if I’m not constantly validating it?? Well, I’ve never paid much heed to warning signs in past relationships, and I’m not about to start now. I look forward to a long, happy life with EpocCam! What could possibly go wrong?.Version: 2019.9

Best Zoom quarantine upgradeMy laptop web cam was pretty bad, and a friend recommended using my old iPhone 5s. Best suggestion ever! The phone was sitting unused in my sock drawer. Not only was I able to avoid the online shortage of web cams right now, but I was able to up-cycle something I already owned. I started with the free app and was blown away about how much better my old phone was. Try out the free app. If you like your old phone better, paying for the full version got me the full resolution that my phone could stream. For me it was totally worth it. I feel like my streaming has finally gone pro. Green screen, pro microphone, and now a real quality camera. What a great purchase..Version: 2020.1

For 39 minutes it rated a 5 and then notWorked well for a zoom meeting. Connected and ran well for about 39 mins or so and then I got a reconnecting notice. Could not get it to reconnect. Rebooted everything. Started and for about 30 mins it ran properly and then started saying reconnecting. I had the free version on phone as well so removed them both reinstalled and ran program. About 15 mins and said reconnecting. This time it reconnected for a while and then lost connection again. Gave up and switched to crappy internal laptop camera. The pieces never moved during this. Internet was active at all times. No idea what’s going on. If maker reads this please advise. I need a package I can trust. Did I just waste my money?.Version: 2020.1

Finally found an app to make iPhone a webcam!I tried the free version and found that it synced right up to OBS on my MacBook. So I went ahead and purchased the paid version. It asked me to do a review to get access to the front camera which I thought was a little weird but whatev! Here I am. Giving a 5 star rating for 3 minutes worth of experience. lol! If it stays consistent with what I’ve experienced so far, it will be well worth the money bc I was literally wondering if I’m going to need to buy a new video camera to live stream church services from home during this coronavirus shutdown. But now I have a way to use my iPhone instead making that purchase, and the video quality will probably outperform a camcorder..Version: 2019.9

GlitchyUPDATED ORIGINALLY TWO STAR I’m using an iPhone 6S plus and a MacBook Pro with EpocCam HD and Zoom. This thing is glitchy. Connecting to the Zoom/Mac is iffy (I’m in Zoom setup), and when I switch away from EpocCam, the connection is totally lost. I have to kill the app on the phone, restart the app, switch Zoom away from EpocCam. Then when I switch back to EpocCam I am reconnected. When I start a Zoom meeting, the connection is lost (I get the circling segments on both phone and Mac). I have to leave the meeting, kill the app on the phone, and re-enter the meeting to get video. UPDATED April 22 - THREE STAR Seems that most of the problems I listed above are caused by 2 things - spotty wifi at my house and the app’s poor USB support. When I cured most of the wifi problems, most of the problems were reduced or eliminated. Even though the app connection setting is “automatic” and that the iPhone has been 100% connected by USB, the latency and freezing and dropped video problems continue. It takes “forever” (5 to 10 seconds) for the camera to reconnect and I get a “connected by wifi” notification. So, USB support is nonexistent or glitchy, but it is mostly usable for Zoom when high quality video is less important. SECOND UPDATE. BACK TO 2 STARS With wifi turned off and only the USB connection and connection set to USB only, it never connects..Version: 2020.1

Works great!I rarely write reviews because I figure most are biased or fake but I had to send one for this. Planning a Zoom board meeting for some in person and some on Zoom. Want to use projector to show Zoom people to the room. Wanted camera to show people in room to Zoom. Computer built in camera not good for moving from speaker to speaker etc. Plus I need to see computer screen during meeting and macbook camera only faces me. My iphone is best camera I own. You cannot get iphone camera into computer. I spent a lot of time trying. This app made it quick and easy to do. I selected 720p and it’s really good quality. Thanks!.Version: 2020.1

Simple but powerfulVery simple to set up and use, but works great via either WiFi or direct connection with my MacBook Pro. The only glitch I ran into was after installation, I couldn’t get it to work until I realized i needed to launch your recording app on the computer FIRST, and THEN launch EpocCam on the phone. Once everything synced for the first time, it happily resyncs regardless of which order you launch which app. Also, locked vs autofocus was not explained in the setup instructions. Locked focus works by tapping once on the image in the iPhone. To return to variable (auto) focus, double-click on the screen..Version: 2020.1

Super Useful High Quality WebcamI needed a high quality and reliable webcam to livestream a message to people throughout Washington and California. This app came in clutch by allowing me to use the much better camera of my iPhone XR and connect it through WiFi to my laptop, which I then used to Zoom. I was also still able to use the audio of my laptop, which I hooked up a mic to. It worked out well. There were no glitches and no noticeable lagging between the webcam connection to my laptop. I recommend!.Version: 2019.9

Works, but causes system crashes Win10I’ve been using EpocCam for two months now as a webcam for Zoom meetings. Yay, Quarantine. It works but appears to be the source of browser and system crashes, even when not running camera. It’s Konini driver will always run in the background, and looking at my event logs has generated daily errors, mostly when I’m not using it. I work for a very large tech company and my IT department flagged this as a network bandwidth hog and potential security risk. I uninstalled drivers and no more crashes. Do be WARNED: this may not be a safe thing to run on your computer. Once set up it does work, although a bit cumbersome to start and position my phone for each meeting. As it uses display and network streaming it can drain battery quickly. I find it too easy to forget I’m using it and have my phone battery go dead..Version: 2020.1

I absolutely love this!I’m so glad I discovered this app! All you need to do is install a simple driver on your computer and it adds a camera source that you can use with just about any program. So instead of streaming with the low quality webcam built into your computer, you get the full quality of your iPhone or iPad camera. I tried the free version first, then upgraded to turn off ads and turn on higher resolution. This enhanced version also lets you swap front and back cameras and tinker with the settings such as resolution, bit rate, etc.. Another great feature is you can connect your iOS device via USB, which means it won’t matter if you have a weak WIfi signal..Version: 2020.1

Needed a camera for video conference gamingWith Covid-19 stay-at-home orders in my state getting together for face-to-face tabletop RPGs is not going to happen. Getting started in a virtual tabletop would involve spending hundreds of extra dollars. I read about groups using Zoom or Skype and doing “theater of the mind” RPGs but our group doesn’t play that way favoring heavy miniatures use on mats. I have all the minis and mats (I’m the GM). Webcams were all sold out everywhere right now but I came across a story on using EpocCam to use an extorting iPhone as a camera in Skype or Zoom. Two weeks ago I tested this out, plugged my iPhone 11 Pro into a six-foot lightning cord to my iMac at the end of my game table and hung the iPhone high looking at the table mat. We had to use Skype because Zoom’s latest update broke. I watched all my players on my iMac screen while all of them saw the game table from the camera as I moved minis for them. I even got to use the 2x zoom feature at times! It worked out better than I hoped! All with this app!.Version: 2020.1

I use this app for Kiss Cam and Dance CamI’m a DJ and I do mostly weddings. For the past two years I’ve been using Apple TV to project my iPhone camera on my tvs but it was so glitchy. I had been looking for an app where I could use my iPhone to stream directly from my laptop to the tv screens and this did it perfectly! Now I build my overlays (wished I could post the pics) on the laptop and put them on the screen with my iPhone camera wirelessly with an Osmo gimbal! I tried other apps but they were blurry, glitchy and wouldn’t work with my existing DJ software. Thanks EpocCam!.Version: 2020.1

Buggier than a Florida swamp, DO NOT BUY!Multiple problems with this app 1.) Theres no way to adjust the image exposure, or any other image settings at all 2.) You can’t adjust the focus from your computer, the focus has to be adjusted on the phone itself...completely useless if you’re using a tripod or any other mount and the back facing camera. 3.) The highest resolution this app supports is 1080p at 30fps, despite the iPhone 11 Pro’s cameras being capable of 4K at 60fps. But even 1080p doesn’t work! The best I was able to get was 720p at 30fps, despite paying for the HD version! 4.) Even at 720p at 30fps, while using OBS to make test recordings on my i7 6-core Mac Mini running the latest version of Mac OS X Catalina, the camera kept disconnecting and re-connecting randomly. What a piece of junk. In summary, do not buy this app. It’s insanely buggy, I wouldn’t even call this beta software, it’s more like alpha, completely unfinished, and there is no support from the developers whatsoever to address these problems. The last app update came out almost 6 months ago. I am so disappointed that I am going to be requesting a refund from Apple for this purchase. What a disgrace..Version: 2020.1

Worked great...for a weekI was so happy to have the opportunity to use an old phone as a WebCam rather than purchase a new one and the free version of EpocCam seemed to work so well, I decided to purchase EpocCam HD to use the microphone. It was working great with no problems for about a week and then it quit working with no logical reason. One day I used it in the morning for a meeting with no problem, and for another meeting in the afternoon all I got was the spinning circle of connecting.. I have tried rebooting everything, re-downloading drivers, reinstalling the app, using a different device. With the other device I finally got the camera to work again, but it is not working with Zoom anymore and I get a “failed to start the video camera” message even though it’s “connected.” I think I have now spent more time troubleshooting it then I actually spent using it when it worked. Rather disappointing. By the way, to those complaining about not being able to use the front facing camera without a review, it’s not really required. I had been using the front facing camera since day one despite not having submitted a review of this app until now..Version: 2020.1

Was amazing... When it worked.I started using this about a month ago as my camera for things like Twitch, Roll20, Zoom, etc. It worked fantastic in the beginning, so much better quality than a typical webcam. Then the usb function stopped working a week later, so I had to use WiFi. But even then it was still good quality and no lag. Then a few weeks later it started to overheat the phone, which makes the camera feed have horrible latency, but it only did this like every other time I used it. It would work fine one day and then overheat the next... Now the past few days it just straight up refuses to connect to my pc at all, so now this app is completely useless. This is kind of pathetic and makes absolutely no sense, and I’m not sure how it can just stop working like that when nothing has changed in my setup from when I started using it. I regret paying for this app.Version: 2020.1

The Most Disappointing App I’ve Ever BoughtThis is the worst app I’ve ever spent money on and it cost $8!!! The app worked okay for about a week and then became useless. The app doesn’t start half the time, it’s incredibly laggy, and it often freezes in the middle of recordings/streams. I can’t even get it to work with a USB cable anymore which is supposed to be the most stable connection. You can not use this app for any professional purposes! You’d drop out of meetings and ruin recordings constantly. There are barely any customization settings in the app and little technical support. I have so many other complaints but enough energy to list them all. Do a Google search for EpocCam and you’ll find a ton of other complaints. I truly believe the company has found a way to fudge their review ratings because I see complaints similar to mine all over the Internet. The app literally doesn’t work, you can’t possibly give it more than a 1-star review. This is perhaps the worst purchase I’ve made this year..Version: 2020.1

When it works, it's excellent. But the "when" is a problem.I purchased this app in Jan 2021 the pro version. I came across it when I searched Google for apps that let me use my iPhone (SE 2nd G) as a video camera for my WebEx and Zoom Meetings. I am using a Mac Mini M1 chip. Initially, it would not connect by Wi-Fi or USB. When I tried to use it with WebEx, it could not be found as a video system. I tried using it with Mediasite via the desktop app and it worked, and after that, I was able to use it with WebEx directly via the USB. The clarity was excellent, the switch from landscape to portfolio mid-video was seamless. I was able to use it with Zoom. Only via USB, but I did not mind this. The controls are simple and I like the options to reflect the image. Since February 22, it stopped working again with WebEx. Doing the same thing it did when I first downloaded the app: WebEx can't find it as a video system. As I write this, I realize I should try it with Zoom and Mediasite again. But, even if that trips the application to work again, it seems there's something faulty going on. I did stop it from the Activity Monitor, restarted my phone, and looked at update and release notes, etc. I haven't reached out to technical support yet, but I find it disappointing to read so many recent reviews that speak to no help from customer support..Version: 2021.1

It just worksSo I don’t know what it’s like to try to use this app with an older OS, but I was running High Sierra on my 2017 MacBook, which is not supported by EpocCam. So I upgraded (free) to Big Sur. Downloaded and installed the driver (took seconds.) Downloaded the app. Started the app and then tested it on Zoom. Since my MacBook and iPhone are on the same WiFi network, EpocCam automatically showed up as an option. The picture is a zillion times better than the MacBook webcam. I did basically nothing and it worked. If you’ve got different tech specs it may be a different story, but this was the least difficult thing I’ve done this week!.Version: 2020.7

FantasticIts easy to set up and works over wifi or usb. The market for webcams is pretty booty right now and this makes my smartphone an even more versatile tool than it already is. My phone's camera was able to work with nvidia broadcast on a 30 series card so I got to use the cool features of it over my video calls. I do wish there was more quality options for things like 60FPS or at least 1440p video capture since some video call apps can use that or even 4k just because then recording videos using a phone and Nvidia broadcast features becomes possible. Being able to do some editing like simply enabling low light mode and HDR on my phone would go a long way in improving the app and making products like the Brio and Kiyo Pro superfluous. I gotta admit I never liked elgato because they reminded me of apple for streamers but after getting a wave 3 mic and I saw how open the system was to use with software not from elgato really change my view of them and after trying this out and seeing its interoperability with broadcast, I am blown away. I am excited and looking forward to future solutions from elgato that can be used for more than just streamers and youtubers..Version: 2021.1

I’ve been using this app for quite some time nowKinoni has apparently have had it with my ducking and dodging the questions and have voluntold me to rate and review (I’m kidding, though, right?) — and fair enough, I’ve been using this thing way too much for way too long to not have some opinion on this product. Granted, the only time I’m asked is when my dedicated webcams fall short and Old Faithful EpocCam picks up the slack and then leaves the others comparatively static. I didn’t know if this app was the bee’s knees of “turn my phone into a webcam”apps, not just because I never could figure out how to use EpocCam as a proper internet webcam device, but also the lack of parameters or expecting much better resolution. But it’s the only app that has remained in any use from any cam/phone apps I had tested; only EpocCam is left. It’s grounded. And reliable. And when it’s acting abnormally, it’s a small pool of suspects with a small pool of solutions. **UPDATE** I found out that HD no longer compatible with EpocCam Viewer!.Version: 1.11.1

Useful but flaky and not easyIt does work, but it is more plug-and-pray than plug-and-play. The picture quality is good, and I do regularly use it with Zoom, Teams and other video apps. It was adding some flutter to my audio, so I broke down and bought a separate mic, which eliminated that problem. The most annoying thing is that the connection can be flaky, especially when connected via USB. It will just disconnect with no notice or reason during a video call. I can quickly reconnect, but it is mot conducive to hassle free meetings. WiFi connection is more reliable but still disconnects occasionally. I use it with an iPhone XR and a Windows 10 desktop, so plain vanilla setup This app gets the job done if you are willing to fool with it, but I would not rate it as a consumer grade solution. Good idea, but they should do more testing to make it robust..Version: 2020.6

So far, so good!Not only can you not find toilet paper in the stores these days, but webcam are also in short supply with so many people working from home due to COVID-19. My work computer does not have a webcam and EpocCam just saved me! This things is amazing for $8 compared to at least $30 you’d pay for a camera that you can’t even find in the stores right now. The quality is good, it works with my apps on my computer and it has been fantastic. Thanks, EpocCam! I literally wouldn’t be able to have meetings with my co-workers with you..Version: 2019.9

Using for twitch streamingI started with the free version of this app. The free version works just as well as the paid version. I have not noticed any difference between the camera quality or the Wi-Fi quality between the two apps. However, my biggest complaint with the free version is that every so often a full screen ad will pop up on my phone that I have to click an X button to remove. This is frustrating to have to do on stream as my viewers see my finger clearly click the screen, even though the ad does not disrupt the video. With the paid version, there are no ads so it is not an issue. Additionally for anyone looking to use the front facing camera, you need to write a review for the app first. However, you can get around this by clicking write a review in the app and then simply hitting cancel on the review and it will still allow you to use the front facing camera. If you’re not worried about the ads inside the app, I would recommend the free version but if you are using this for any sort of streaming service I would get the paid one..Version: 1.10.6

Just got it to work...It took some doing, but I somehow managed to get the wired connection to work. I’m leaving a review so I can start using the front camera (not a fan of this tactic), but I do hope the developers get some handy feedback regardless. I was in need of a webcam that I could put anywhere (like over the shoulder on a tripod. Given of the shortage of webcams for purchase online at the time of this writing, I figured there’s got to be a simple way to use my phone for this... and this app does just that! Hoping I don’t run into more hiccups as I continue to use it — like I said at the start — it took some doing to get the app and my MacBook Pro to start communicating. Thank you to the developers for making this tool available, and I hope you continue to keep it updated..Version: 2019.9

When it works, it does. Otherwise, too glitchyThis app was great when I first purchased it. However, over two weeks of using the app it became really unstable. At first it worked only on WiFi, but wouldn’t work on USB. I downloaded the new drivers per the Kinoni Facebook page instructions. USB seemed to work sporadically, then not at all. In fact, the WiFi stopped working. I had to reinstall the drivers every time I wanted to use it and WiFi functionality never came back. Then a glitch showed up - while using it during a Zoom call the software stops, goes to a circle connection mode, and then returns. Constantly interrupting the video. There’s no way around this because the WiFi doesn’t work. This app has great potential, but is way too unstable to use consistently..Version: 2020.1

The IronyI used the free version of the app for about 2 days with no issue. I used front facing for zoom without a hitch and switch back and forth between them with no issue. It was plug and play no worries I bought the pro version to have a microphone, and now it’s just not wanting to play nice with zoom. The front facing camera either crashes the EpocCamService in windows or crashes the app on here. The rear facing camera does work but then it occasionally connects with an odd filter over it or something, like at one point it was entirely green. The pro version is worse than the free version in almost every way, I will be troubleshooting as I did pay for it and therefore want it to work but this is ridiculous.Version: 2020.7

App works with PC....Mac Users Beware!!!!If you are not tech savvy, do not try this app. I gave the app 5 stars only because it works great with PC. IT DOES NOT WORK WITH MACS!!! I tried the free version on my work PC with the USB cable and it worked great. Used it with Zoom and Microsoft’s teams. So I bought the paid version to get the better quality. Once again, worked great on the PC. Got home and downloaded the OS driver to my MacBook, pull up zoom for a meeting, and nothing. Went to the website and found out that it currently doesn’t work with Mojave and they are currently working on a solution. It would be nice if they would put that in the description of the app. I’ve wasted $8 on this. I have parallels on my computer so I’m going to put zoom into Windows and download the windows drivers and see if it works. I’ll update after. Update: I downloaded everything to Windows on parallels and used it for a zoom meeting today. It worked fine for the most part. For some reason the app timed out on the phone a couple of times which was not good. But it did work. I have another zoom meeting tomorrow so I’m going to make some more adjustments to see if I can clean up the process a bit. Just to repeat myself, if you are not tech savvy, I don’t recommend this app. There are too many moving parts to the process..Version: 2020.1

Almost perfect except for one MAJOR oversight...I really love being able to repurpose an unused iPhone 7 as an incredibly advanced web camera. EpocCam does the job, and the paid version for less than ten dollars is a real value in a time where web cameras are sold out or price gouged. In my use and configuration on a dedicated iPhone as a web cam (mounted to my monitor), I use the forward facing camera. The flaw / missing element in this application: it lacks the ability to save preferences. Specifically, every time I use the app I must switch to the forward facing camera and apply the mirror toggle! What???? No set as default! Come on... that’s basic..Version: 1.10

Recommended for 10Min Video chats onlyI thought this app was a godsend to instantly improve the production quality by not having to use the webcam on my MacBook. Quality is greatly improved but stability becomes an issue. I have not been able to use the EpocCam app for more than 25mins without the signal needing to reconnect. I then have to shutdown the app, restart it to be able to use the app again. This problem has persisted after 2 updates. Note that I always use the app connected over a cable. Because of the apps unreliability on the paid version I recommend not paying for it and just using the free version..Version: 2020.1

Worked only reliably on 5GHz WiFiAfter purchase, the software worked as intended the first time after launch of the application and connection to a Windows 10 PC. However when the app was closed even for a short time, it often was unable to re-connect. Based on recommendations for a video streaming protocol NDI, I configured the WiFi to use only the 5GHz band. Since this reconfiguration, the app works as intended. In my rating, the app losses one star for the required configuration of the WiFi and one star for the incomplete implementation of "manual focus". The manual focus is listed as pro feature but its nowhere documented what it does and it is not manual. This app does not have a manual focus function that allows you to manually focus. I would call it a fully automatic focus on demand..Version: 2020.1

Business intelligence & Data Strategy.I run business intelligence and data strategy for my company, and good quality video and audio in today’s streaming world is the nice suit of yesterday. Show up to an interview in a crappy outfit and those first impressions kill you. Today show up on a meeting with crappy video and crappy audio and itSend that same poor first impression. This was the easiest and most simple set up of any app that I have seen in years. This is the elegance of the Apple iPhone in the New World of screen share meetings..Version: 2020.7

EpocCamThe instructions did not make it clear that you needed to also install EpocCam Viewer... I haven’t been able to get it to work with the testing website they recommend. Haven’t tried a Skype or Zoom call yet. Based on EpocCam Viewer, the quality seems fine. But I’m having to write this review to use the front cam on the PAID VERSION of the app. Update: You do not need EpocCam Viewer. In fact, it messed things up for me. If I remember right, I just had to restart everything to get it to work. Now it works perfectly, and I use it daily with zoom. Still annoying to have to write a review to unlock features for a paid app, but it works well..Version: 2019.9

Paid for featuresRated already for free version to unlock both cameras. Paid for full version and then had rate again to use features I paid for. SHAMEFUL. However, I am thankful that this is doing the job of a document camera that would cost me a few $100's. So 2 stars. Would've been five if I hadn't had to come back and rate again more than twice already PLUS I have to uninstall and reinstall the app from both my computer and my phone every few months due to the fact it stops working which is time consuming and inconvenient in my classroom when it stops working unexpectedly. **Had to RATE IT AGAIN!!! SMH 🙄 Still grateful but it’s a bit aggravating when I have to take time out of my planning period to rate something so I can use it for class. ☹️ Pros 1) cost less 2) wireless and I can move about my classroom 3) make videos to upload 4) HD and great picture! Cons) 1) needs a WiFi signal on the same network can’t work just on Bluetooth 2) freezes when you get a call or text message (Turn off messages/calls if you make video) 3)Frequently needs to be reinstalled and the updates didn’t make much of a difference..Version: 2019.6

Worst waste of moneyI could not link my phone with my mac. I tried wifi and usb cable. I tried with google meet, ring central, quick time, slack, zoom. NONE could connect to my iphone camera. This is a scam. Just tell users your app don’t work with mac and you are good man! Edit: I solved the issue. The Daemon wouldn’t silently fail when launched in launchd. I suspect because there is a typo in the Launch Agent plist. Still fixing the typo didn’t made it work so I had to directly reach to the app packaged in the plug im an run it. Finally I could use the phone camera as the Google Meet Camera. It even works to record in quicktime, which comes handy. If you are not tech savvy and use mac, it will be a hell of frustration to try to use this app..Version: 2020.5

Good EnoughFrom all the research I did a couple months ago this is the only option to use an iPhone as a USB webcam. All the other apps are WiFi only. Or you are using a screen capture method. That can work if you can get a clean video output. I can’t remember exactly how to do it, but it’s possible. Also, WiFi can have more latency, especially when using a separate mic. I’ve used this app quite a bit for Skype and Zoom calls. For the most part it works like a charm. However, sometimes it loses connection with my iMac or MBP. It’s always connected via USB and I have it set so that it can only use USB, plus I have the WiFi turned off anyway. If it was more stable, then I could use this in more “mission critical” situations where I’m recoding an interview via Skype. For the typical video conference call it really does the job of giving you a high quality camera. I think this is a very good app and I definitely recommend it to up your webcam game. They just need to make it more reliable and it will be perfect..Version: 2020.1

Works but with some limitationsThe app works just as advertised. Video via Lightning/USB-C to my MacBook Pro is smooth and the quality is good. Once additional drivers on the Mac are installed from the developer’s web site, the app works with Zoom. It would be more useful if the camera understood device rotation and orientation. For example, depending on hardware positions, it is sometime more helpful to have the wire on the left rather than the right when in landscape mode, but the fixed orientation forces the iPad or iPhone to be rotated such that the lightning port is always on the right. Similarly, portrait orientation would be helpful for positioning the camera at a good vertical height. The prompts asking for an App Store rating are annoying. Even with this paid app, it asked several times for a rating, and in one instance, the modal dialog box interrupted the video connection to my ongoing Zoom call. All in all, a useful app that could use some additional functionality and a more user-friendly policy about requesting App Store ratings..Version: 2020.1

Kind of WorksI have tested this app on an iPhone 6 se and an iPhone XR. On both the video lags by 2 seconds or more above 640x480. Even at 640x480 it will be fine for about 30 seconds, lag and freeze up and then be fine for a short period of time again. I made sure to eliminate the variable of a bad network connection by creating a computer to computer network between my phones and the computer I was trying to stream video to. I still had the exact same problem. The only other possible source for this problem could be the live-streaming software I am using: Ecamm Live. I am leaving 3 stars in case it is not the EpocCam software and is indeed the Ecamm Live software..Version: 2019.9

Worth every PennyBought the pro version to remove watermark. Prior I purchased a Logitech C615 HD camera to use with Zoom and Teams for sales presentations. The Logitech is absolute garbage and using this with an iPhone XR was incredible. The quality was impeccable. I had set the phone on a tripod and was showing apparel to a customer. The level of detail and clarity was unmatched! I would suggest one important need, there should be a way to turn off the phones display as to save battery. I had mine plugged in USB and it maintained a charge on the Phone, but with the display running as well, it doesn’t allow the battery to fully charge..Version: 2021.1

IPhone 4s works now in OBSI needed another video camera for a 4 camera shoot. Didn't have a lot of money to spend. I then remembered my iPhone 4s. I bought a battery for it years ago but I forgot to put new battery in. After putting the battery in I checked some apps that have the NDI protocol and even though a lot of them said the requirement was for iOS 10 or 11 or 13 when I hit the Epocam HD download button it downloaded the older version that was compatible with my iPhone. I didn't open OBS and Shernoff there is my video feed from my iPhone for us very good program and worth every penny for the HD version..Version: 1.10

WiFi rarely works.Easy to setup and use, but WiFi rarely works, so I have to connect with a usb cord. Since I only have 3-foot long cords, I have to buy a longer cord, so the total price just went up. The video quality with my iPhone 7+ is better than the camera in my laptop and the webcam I bought an returned after I discovered this app. No regrets but still wish it did what it says it can do. When it does work with WiFi, I haven’t noticed a lag with speech/audio, but there is sometimes a delay if I move my hand into view. The interface is severely lacking. There are hardly any options. I’m not sure if my video is 1080p because it just has fair, good, and best quality as options, not specific numbers. The desktop app on my PC is also barebones..Version: 2020.5

Works fineI agree with another reviewer that if you aren’t tech suave, you may become frustrated. I often have the reset the program within Task Manager. I also find it frustrating that it will unlink sometimes. It disconnects when the app ask you to rate it, it disconnects when the phone turns off, it disconnects after a long period of just sitting there. All of these are understandable but, as soon as I wake the phone back up, I wish it would automatically reconnect. It’s kind of hit and miss and sometimes I need to reset the app on my computer through task manager before it picks up again. I know all that sounds awful but it’s not as bad as it sounds. It works. I just wish it connected faster..Version: 2021.1

Awesome app, when it works...I started with the free version and was so impressed with the quality I upgraded. Here’s the thing, it crashes and loses connection constantly. I’m using it with OS X Catalina and it’s just too unstable to rely on. The quality is fantastic when it’s working but it’ll drop out in less than 10 min into a Zoom call. It seems to be very prone to conflicts with other apps you may have open. If the company can get a fix out I would highly recommend this app. As it is, I recommend you steer clear of this app. It’s just not reliable enough and at best, you’ll have to fiddle with it several times while in the midst of a call to keep it working. Fingers crossed for a fix from the developer, great potential here!.Version: 2020.1

Giving this app 3 stars right now..When I first downloaded the EpocCam app (free version) I was thrilled. It seemed like it was going to work great as an additional camera on zoom. I decided to upgrade to the pro for the added features but the app only gave me a settings choice for changing the quality. After using the pro app the real time became extremely slow-10 second delay. I’m so confused I lowered the quality but it made no difference in the lag. It is also extremely hard to troubleshoot this app.. I can’t figure out how to fix the quality. If it’s possible I’m going to ask for a refund.. I definitely don’t get what I paid for.Version: 2020.7

Best purchase of an app over 99 centsUsually after I’ve purchased an app that’s priced over $0.99, I’m sorely disappointed. But not this app. I have an iPhone 11 and a Mac, running Catalina OS. The setup was simple but there are something you should know. The instructions make it sound like all you have to do is download the app and a driver for your Mac or PC, but what they failed to mention is that you need to download the viewer for your Mac or PC as well. I googled and found their website, which is where I found the viewer. After downloading the needed app, viewer and driver, I connected to WiFi and it worked much better than I expected. No setup. Just turn on the cam app, startup Zoom or whatever webcam client you use; select EpocCam as your camera, and voila you’re in business. I’m able to use my iPhone wirelessly as my webcam, which I can place ianywhere that gives me the most flattering angle. I love it. I think you will too..Version: 2020.1

Serious video lag and forces review before even setting it upWarning - Please read recent reviews carefully before paying. The paid version of the app requires one to write a review to be able to use the front camera, hence this review. Tried this app because it is so very difficult to find a decent webcam in stock these days. Used this for a zoom meeting with an iPhone XR and a Dell laptop running windows 10. The video lag that many other reviews mention makes this app extremely difficult to use and had to switch to the default laptop webcam 5 minutes into the meeting . Uninstalled app 45 minutes after paying for it. Forcing users to write a Review probably explains the tons of review this app has. Unethical at best and unusable at worst!.Version: 2019.9

Saved MoneyThe functionality of EpocCam is great. I was on the verge of buying a webcam when I realized my iPhone was a really good camera. A little searching and I found EpocCam. Saved all that money, so I didn't mind paying for the app. Paid $5.99. Oh you want higher rez and more features - pay $7.99 more. Oh you want to use the other camera - write a review. This would have been a 5 star for ease of use, features, etc. But -1 star for making me jump through hoops to get what I would have been willing to pay $20 for in the first place..Version: 2019.9

Finally a stable and reliable webcam app for OBS and Wirecast!I really struggled finding a good solution to use my iPhone as a quick and easy way to bring video into my streaming software platforms. I tried to use NDIHX Cam and NDI Cam, I had nothing but Jenkee and horrible issues that made it incredibly frustrating to do anything. Video freeze and jerky video. Disappearing options on software etc. I love that EpocCam utilizes a driver! This app just works and always looks great. Has a great onboard menu as well. If you’re doing any streaming, I highly recommend this app. It is the only one I have found to be this dependable and stable!.Version: 2020.1

Does Not Quit !As a teacher teaching from home I downloaded this app on my iPhone and my MacBook Air. It worked great the first time I used both apps. I paired my Epoc Cam app on my phone with the app on my Mac. I used my phone as an overhead projector. However, every time I use the app it will not quit!! It feels like a computer virus! I have to turn my phone off and then back on in order to make the app quit! I also have to do the same thing on my Mac. I click quit and it will not quit or shut down. It is too the point that I feel like I wasted my money buying the paid version. I just want to delete it and ask for my money back! Don’t buy this app; it’s either a virus or has bugs. I don’t know.... it’s just frustrating!.Version: 2020.1

Not workingI have an iPhone 11. Used the free app and it worked great, but I believe it was with Kononi, something like that. I purchased the app to use with my Windows 10 PC and cannot get the phone to connect. I did everything they suggested to troubleshoot, still nothing. I’m at a lost. My PC is compatible and so is my phone so not sure why the phone won’t connect. I downloaded itunes, downloaded the 35 something for compatibility, they have the same wireless connection, I reinstalled, rebooted, nothing.🤦🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️ It gets a 3 star because I know it works, just not for me. Any other ideas would be helpful, especially since I’ve already paid for the product..Version: 2020.7

Auto lock issuePlease fix the auto lock issue, otherwise 5 stars..Version: 2020.4

So far so goodEasy to set up, download the driver, open the app and follow instructions. No front camera until you write review, but once you restart the computer it works. Can be buggy and stop working but when it works is excellent..Version: 2019.9

This application removed a feature and demanded I post this review in order to reinstate it.Update your dummy drivers so we can use this as a proper camera please. Stripping front cam usage for those who don’t rate is terrible. It’s extortion, as this app is not free. Your camera software does not integrate with chrome or Discord. Sure, I’ll rate in order to reinstate use of front camera: Sorry fam, garbage strongarm tactics and poor integration earned you one star. Hope this worked out the way you were hoping..Version: 1.10.1

Needs improvemenrVery good when it works but when you used it and connect it again , its very hard to link / connect it..Version: 2020.1

Terrible don’t waste you moneyPro version is garbage, first you still need to review to gain access to the features you pay for and second the only reason I paid was to get audio access which turns out doesn’t work at all. Zero audio on zoom, then the video became seriously unreliable..Version: 2019.9

Good quality but sometimes unreliableConnection sometimes is an issue which can de disaster when you really need it ie for live stream..Version: 2019.9

Good...butGreat app except it doesn’t work on Skype or Zoom. I’ve followed all the instructions downloaded, uninstalled and redownloaded and re-installed and downloaded the drivers etc. etc. and it still doesn’t appear as an option for video input. It’s a shame as the video quality is great and it’s easy to setup, but the whole point was to use it in apps like Skype..Version: 2019.9

Great when it worksWhen this app is working it works really well. However I’ve had problems with it not connecting for no apparent reason. Sometimes simply restarting it gets in working again. Sometimes it just never works via wifi again. I paid for the pro version so I would expect more reliability for the money I paid. For example one day I used it to successfully hold a family Zoom meeting. The next day it stop working unless connected with USB. With USB it seemed super laggy. I feel like the developers need to bug test it more because it seems to be very finicky about when it connects. Maybe it needs a control panel for the computer app to trouble shoot it. The only troubleshooting they suggest is checking if the background apps are working and that the phone and computer are on the same network. It’s really good when it works so it’s frustrating that it is so unreliable..Version: 2019.9

AnnoyingReview to be able use something I paid for.Version: 2019.6

Front camera.I'm at a loss to understand why after paying for this app we are forced to write a review to gain access to the front camera. I wrote a review for the free version to gain access I'm not giving praise again but wrote this simply to gain access again..Version: 2019.3

Front CameraApp seems to work well yet to use the front camera. Good a cant but a webcam anywhere at the moment!.Version: 2019.9

Works like a dream ☁️😇Easy to setup and get going. I bought this app mainly for Zoom Meeting, couldn’t find old web camera, which was good, because this is so much better !.Version: 2020.1

Works wellTried iWebcamera, didn't work. Tried epoccam, works great. They should strip out "review our stuff and get access to front camera!", because I would give five stars if it weren't for that..Version: 1.10

Decent camera link, some difficultiesDecent app while it’s working. Sometimes doesn’t want to sync with front camera on my iPhone XR. Have to reinitiate sync by changing from USB to auto and visa versa when changing from front to back cameras.Version: 2019.9

Live streaming on a budgetHad to find a way to start live streaming without spending any money, and here it is! Working as advertised at the moment, found plugging the camera in to be way better and it works with ecamm live..Version: 2019.9

Will change rating if issue is fixedI can’t seem to get the microphone to work. My computer isn’t picking it up and I’m annoyed that I paid for the full version. Nothing on the website says anything about how to fix minor microphone issues. Fix the issue I’ll fix my rating but at the moment this is all you can get..Version: 2020.1

Temperamental setup and connection with no micJust purchased the pro version and had to reinstall driver several times for connection. I now have the issue with no mic. I will be asking for a refund after wasting 2 hours of my time on this issue. Shame, because it looks like it would be a good app when working..Version: 2020.7

Fails for meUsing Win 10 this product failed me. So it works, but then you realise that clear picture comes at a cost- bandwidth . Essentially you go back to your devices camera after one or two calls , another con really....Version: 2020.7

Yay, now it works OK!I bought the paid version at the beginning of April and it was very unstable - sometimes it would work and most times would not. I had to delete the app and uninstall the PC software numerous times, then reinstall to get it working. Then a few weeks ago, when I did the reinstalling - yet again - I think the drivers had been updated. I have been using it for the last few weeks with Zoom and NO PROBLEMS NOW!! So I am very happy with it..Version: 2020.1

Forced to rateI paid for the app but I’ve been forced to rate it before I can use the front camera, so it’s 2 stars from me. I’m sure this practice will soon be illegal. I haven’t had a chance to test the app out before being forced to rate it. It’s a shame as I’m sure it will turn out to be a good app!.Version: 2019.9

Held back by ransom tacticsMinus one star as front camera access is only granted once the app is reviewes despite it being a paid app. Minus one star as... While the app looks like it is probably ok I have no way of really knowing given that the first thing I've done with it is to come here to review to open the features. All in all, three stars but with different design decisions it has potential to be four or five..Version: 2019.9

Paid version skips the adsThe good: - Straight forward to get a quick ad-hoc network cam up and running. The bad: - It appears that the mac beta driver does not work on Mojave, so this is not working for use in other programs like skype. The name of the cam does show up, but the video only shows a turning circle. Bummer. I hope there is a driver update soon. - Forcing a review to get front cam access? While I can understand that for the free version, this is not acceptable on the paid version. Deducting a star just for that. What would be a nice addition: - IP address based connectivity. I’d like to keep my mac on wired ethernet while connecting to the iPad cam on wifi, pretty please..Version: 1.10.6

Just to use front facing cameraIt’s horrible after paying money I have to leave this rating to use the front facing camera cause this is a good program but it’s over flown with ads.Version: 2019.9

Review for paid functionality?App works as described. Rating for front camera access is pretty distasteful though. I suppose it works though..Version: 2019.9

Audio doesn’t work.Upgrade to pro version because of claims it will use audio from your device. Beware if you intend to use iPhone/iPad on ms teams or zoom and expect audio from device it doesn’t work. Been in contact with support. All they keep telling me to do is update drivers. Works fine as a simple webcam but will need an external microphone or headset..Version: 2020.1

Very useful appJust started working from home and now have an extra camera to play with.Version: 2019.9

Doesn’t keep the screen onThe app closes after a couple minutes unless I tell the phone to not autologous from the settings. No other camera app seems to do this. Please fix..Version: 2021.1

Review for Front Camera?Yeah nah this is a bit of a stitch up but nonetheless here’s your review. Handy app just wish I didn’t have to go to these lengths to get a feature I’ve already lauds for.Version: 2019.9

Wasted my moneyPaid for this to connect to my computer for zoom meetings. Worked really well to start with. I could choose what resolution I wanted in settings (480p/720p/1080p) then the app was updated for the new iOS 14. And now I can’t choose my resolution and the video lags more the 60sec when using the app. Complete waste of money. Really disappointed!.Version: 2020.6

Good image, poor soundImage quality is pretty good, but you need to buy the full version to get sound as well. And that is really not worth it. Tried everything I could, including a dedicated microphone, but was not able to get steady and noise free sound. The app by their main competitor did give me good sound with the same equipment. So I deleted this one and will use theirs, I am sorry to say..Version: 2020.1

Doesn’t hit the markWhilst a great concept I’ve found that this doesn’t really hit the mark for a webcam replacement. Audio is laggy on both wifi and usb connection. Background noise is amplified but video is good. It was a cheap alternative but one that I won’t be keeping..Version: 2020.1

Good but needs improvementsFirstly, holding front camera access hostage until I give a review is greatly disappointing. After already paying for the app this is total disrespect. Secondly, I’m still unsure how the audio of making my phone into a microphone works after having that advertised in the free version. This could do with a better explanation. It is a useful app non the less..Version: 2019.3

Crashes when using it for over 20 minutesI use this app with a iPhone 8 and every 20 minutes it crashes and it’s annoying because I have to take it off the mount and put it back on could you fix this problem please that would be great but the app it self is amazing to use just need to fix that one problem I’m having.Version: 2020.7

EpocCam for that extra cameraWith everyone using Zoom and other video links a different angle is sometimes wanted. Here it is, using that spare mobile phone. Recommended.Version: 2019.9

Just here for the CameraSeems weird you pay money and have to rate to use a paid feature.Version: 2019.9

Worth the upgrade.Very impressed. Does exactly what they say, turns your iPhone into a high quality webcam. I’ve had zero issues and has always worked as expected..Version: 2020.7

IPhone Camera via USB to MacHaving used a 720dpi usb camera on my PowerMac for Zoom meetings and never being able to get the quality I could get streaming from my iPhone 6s it was time to look for a better camera. Zoom on an iPhone is too limited for business meetings and impractical for page sharing, commenting etc. My research led me to this app, which can stream via wifi or usb directly from an iPhone. For a few dollars and no need for new equipment it looked like a great solution. Having just used it for the first time in a conference meeting with 15 attendees it was quite stable. It did crash after 2 hours of use and was a little stressful getting it going again. Later reading through the trouble shooting notes it looks like the fault lies with iTunes losing the connection and needs to reconnect the USB. I did this and it seems to fix this issue quickly. Things that confused me when I launched the iOS app. Obviously, I wanted to give access to the iPhone camera but I didn’t want to access the iPhone mic. I have dedicated audio hardware and mixing equipment on my Mac that I wanted to use. It seemed the app wouldn’t allow only camera access without audio access. This could have been my inexperience using this app, but this is my first impression and I wanted to write a review to loose the start up prompt for me to write a review. Overall, I’m pleased with the app saving the need to buy another piece of tech hardware ‘USB camera’ that I don’t need..Version: 2020.1

Easy and Simple Video ConferencingI have been looking for a webcam for use during working from home as my work notebook does not have a webcam built in. Then I read that you can use my work iPhone as a webcam and this app has been and easy and simple way to get started on video conferencing. Highly recommend! I Just need to get a stand for my iPhone!.Version: 2019.9

Easy to use but...Only major problem I’m finding is the connection drops in and out, despite being connected over wifi and usb. Also only reviewing for access to front camera..Version: 2019.9

DisappointedI bought this app understanding that it would fully replace a webcam and provide the quality of an iPhone camera. I attempted to use this for a livestream and it was thwart with constant problems. The camera dropped out several times during the livestream for no apparent reason, and it eventually got to the point where I gave up and started using my webcam on my pc 🤦‍♂️ my iPhone XS is recently purchased and the charger lead was brand new and these problems still persisted. I would get my money back if I could, feel like my time has been wasted and a very stressful circumstance arose from trying to use this software..Version: 2020.1

So far impressed!Needed to restart my MacBook Pro then worked instantly with Zoom. Just saved $$$ on a webcam-which are impossible to buy right now due to coronavirus..Version: 2019.9

Terrible after sales serviceNice product when it worked, but trying to get technical support to resolve wifi connection issues with Bonjour has been hopeless. Like the product when it worked, but disappointed on the level of technical support with Kinoni software..Version: 2020.1

So far so goodWould have liked to have tested it more before giving a rating. How do you rate a car before you try it. Otherwise does what it meant to..Version: 2019.9

Getting more reliable nowNow that Zoom permits virtual cameras again, EpocCam is a great piece of software to use to turn your iphone into a very high-quality webcam. I was having problems with it crashing but updating to the latest MacOS drivers (downloadable from the EpocCam website) has made it very reliable..Version: 2020.1

Needs some workI bought EpocCam for two specific reasons - HD streaming and Syphon compatibility. Neither worked with the macOS EpocCam Viewer app, so I thought I’d bought a dud. However, using the EpocCam Viewer Pro app fixed both issues. This should be articulated more clearly to avoid disappointment as the app itself does the required job..Version: 1.10

EpocCam ProI bought the pro version as I wanted 1080p resolution and audio but I am having difficulty getting it to work correctly. At the moment I am not sure it is worth the money but will continue testing it for the moment..Version: 2019.9

USB disconnects after a whileFor no reason, the usb link will stop working after a while. There is no help option or any way to fix this. The usb cable works fine and I’ve tried multiple usb ports. For a $12 app. It’s rather basic and poor user interface, not many options within the app. Not worth your time..Version: 2019.9

Useful, but unreliableHandy way to get a wireless webcam but man, it crashes and freezes up a fair bit needing a restart. And totally agree with the other guy, demanding a review to use the front camera feature on an app that I paid for is totally a dick move..Version: 2019.6

Does what it says, works well.Not too much fussing, just install the drivers and it connects to the app on the phone..Version: 2019.9

Microphone doesn’t get sent to Windows 10I bought this thinking it would work, but none of my video conferencing apps (skype or MS Teams) can hear my voice even though I have the Kinoni audio source selected. The camera part works fine and my PC does see my iPad/iPhone as a webcam. Not having audio working is a deal breaker for me. I even tried restarting my pc after driver install and checked all my settings..Version: 2019.9
