ATTENTION: WAREHOUSE 13 AGENTS AND STEAMPUNK FANS!
Turn your iPhone into a working Farnsworth just like the agents use on Warehouse 13!
The Farnsworth Video Communicator - from the makers of the Super 8 app - lets you exchange video and audio messages in an interface that's a spitting image of the steampunk device from Syfy's hit TV series. (We should know - QMx also makes the hero Farnsworth props seen on the show.)
Using the Farnsworth Video Communicator, you can record and send birthday greetings, update your friends and family, collaborate with a colleague and much more. The possibilities are infinite!
With this retro-cool app, you can send and receive video or audio-only messages super-fast over *any* Internet connection. All you need to do is invite (or be invited by) another Farnsworth user to exchange messages and you're ready to go!
With the Warehouse 13 Farnsworth Video Communicator, you can:
• Send and receive videos from fellow agents that look exactly like the messages do on Warehouse 13.
• Send messages fast over *any* Internet connection: WiFi, 3G, CDMA and even EDGE.
• Under deep cover or have an iDevice without a camera? You can send audio-only messages with an oscilloscope effect on-screen that matches your voice!
• Post messages directly to Facebook - or email them directly from your Farnsworth.
• Communicate securely. Only those you invite or those who have invited you can exchange messages with you.
• Receive notifications of new messages – even if the Farnsworth app isn't active.
• Install the Farnsworth app on multiple devices and your messages will be automatically copied via our server to all devices as you receive them.
• Use the app on most iDevices, including the iPhone GS and up, iPad and iPad 2 (pixel-doubled graphics) and the iPod G4.
• Check out the real-time shadow effects: They move as your iDevice moves.
• Get messages directly from Warehouse 13! Artie has been known to check up on new agents in the field. And you never know when you might get an assignment from Claudia. Don't be hurt if she calls you a noob. That's a term of endearment. No, really.
The Farnsworth Video Communicator is the first app to use our QMxchange mobile messaging platform. Your Farnsworth app will be able to exchange messages with any app that supports QMxchange.

It's a trap!
While I LOVE Warehouse 13, and I was DYING to get a new iPhone so I could download and use this nerdgasmic, geektastic app, I cannot give this any stars or recommend this to anyone. In fact, I strongly urge you NOT to get lured in to using this app. "Lured in" you ask? "What could he possibly mean?" This app is a fisher of email addresses!!' The moment you create an account, you will receive a DELUGE of spam that is futile to try to shore-up. I am very careful about where I give my email address, and I take pride in the fact that I've been able to keep my inbox relatively spam-free for more than 10 years. Trusting Artie and the agents at Warehouse 13, I figured that this app was harmless and would be a safe place to create an account using my email address. In less than an hour after creating my account I was receiving DOZENS of spam emails, and I am 100% certain that this app was the culprit. There's no use in trying to "unsubscribe" to the emails since they're all coming from different advertisers (and some of the advertisers only provide a P.O. Box to unsubscribe. Yes, that's right. You have to send SNAIL MAIL to unsubscribe to email. Wicked, evil tricks. I suspect H. G. Wells, but that's a whole other rant. I'm not sure if this is a new problem with the app or what... it seems that this app is highly rated, so perhaps the spam is worth it? At any rate, download & use this app at your own risk!!!
Check Yer Mail!
Got this yesterday and love it! Graphics are amazing, menu interface is surprisingly easy to use; only thing I wish it had was groups for my contacts. I can see I'm going to be scrolling a lot otherwise. Maybe next update? :-)
To the two users who gave 1 star reviews because they said they couldn't send invites: I had the same problem. Then realized it was Apple Mail that wasn't working right, not the Farnsworth (I think the app uses Apple Mail to send invites). Go check and make sure your Apple Mail is working right and that you've selected an active mail account for the "from:" field. Should solve the problem for you instantly!
Awesome work, QMx. And thanks for making it $.99; makes it easier to convince friends to get a copy, too!
Your Mission, Should You Decide to Accept It
They had me at the original messages from Artie and Claudia. It's so cool that the actors are actually telling you how to use the app! But the graphics are amazing – so realistic that I didn't even notice that the shadows moved at first because it seemed natural that they should.
I'm having a lot of fun just sending messages now. I got a couple friends on my agent list. But I'm having even more fun sending videos via e-mail to my friends who aren't blessed with iPhones. Did you know the videos actually look like a a Farnsworth? How'd they do that? Sooo cool!
