"Air Cam Live Video for the iPhone and iPod touch is a great application for viewing your live webcam feeds over local, Wi-Fi or 3G and EDGE networks..." --- Macword

Ratings and Reviews
What do you expect? It's free.
I give this app 3 stars because it works relatively well. Sure, there's about a 5 second lag but what do you expect, getting the picture from a wi-fi network. The quality and sound are decent, even though the sound is a little off from the picture. I like how you can take snapshots of the live video. And so far the update is pretty cool. They added an option to take a video of the live feed. Unfortunately when you play back the video on the ipod or iphone, there is no sound. They should try to fix that. The recording you took instantly saves onto your computer, and the sound is fine. Ya there are still a few bugs in this app. Like when I exit out of the app and try to go back on, sometimes there's just a black screen. Also, it still freezes occasionally. I still haven't really played around with it since the update, but so far it's working alright. I don't know why people gave this 1 star. I think it's worth at least 3. I mean, come on. It's free! Of course it's not going to be perfect. If you don't like it, then delete it and don't pay for the extended network one.
The 5th star will come when you add a "back" button so that I don't have to hit the home button and start over to change something. If I have a machine set up downstairs and one upstairs and one at work, I have to restart the app to change between them. Add this functionality and this is a fantastic app! I award another star (virtual star) because the desktop-based part of this is a free download and also has great functionality. Good job and well done.
I also think adding the option to disable the video and only listen to the audio would be a great feature. You can now disable the audio, but sometimes I'd rather hear than see - especially at night.
The Free Version Works good (FOR FREE!)
I was reading some of the reviews, and I dont understand why people say that you have to pay to use it. The free version works just fine for me on my "local" network. I think you have to purchase the full version to use on "external networks" like when you leave the house.
But for the price,the results are more than expected and awesome! I have my laptop setup right now as an impromptu babycam. Yes there is a lag, but its not a big deal, i'm not trying to have a conversation with anyone. The picture is color, and the audio works.
This product makes me love my iphone and my mac even more!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
