"I found WebCamera to be a useful app and plan to use it a lot in the future as a second camera for TUAW TV Live."
Mobiola WebCamera is a great way to share what cannot be recorded with a built-in laptop camera, as it is wireless and can be easily moved around. Imagine talking to your mother on Skype and showing her her grandson taking his first steps. Or sitting within WiFi hotspot near the Eiffel Tower, and sharing this moment with your friend while giving him a virtual tour of this famous landmark. With WebCamera, anything can be shared wirelessly in a simple and fun way.
WebCamera works with Skype, Google+, Yahoo!, Windows Live Messenger, AIM, ICQ and many other messaging applications, just like a regular USB webcam. It also works with video production software such as Boinx TV, CamTwist, and Camtasia.
WebCamera captures video in three different resolutions: 192x144, 480x360, 1280x720, and 1920х1080 on iPhone 4S and iPhone 5. You may capture either individual frames or the whole video stream. Supports front cameras on iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5.
With the free WebCamera desktop application installed on a computer, WebCamera is plug-and-play ready.

Slow and poor quality. Even when I create a network on my Mac and connect my iPhone directly to it, the video quality is extremely poor. I can get better quality over a FaceTime call, and this isn't even traveling over the Internet. 1080p and even 720p is useless as the frame rate drops to about 3fps (and that's a pretty generous number). But worse still there is no USB functionality to make up for what's lacking in wifi. On top of that the desktop app is very buggy and has crashed several times in the first few minutes of using it. Don't waste the money. They only reason this deserves 2 stars is because the low resolutions, while being extremely poor quality, still have decent frame rates and it (barely) does what it's advertised. I really wish I could get my money back.
Works! Totally cool
Super super great deal if you're looking for a quick way to get a web cam .. I have an iPhone 4. Don't have a webcam anymore so looked around at a few to read reviews and decided to purchase this one. Get the app and the computer install they tell you, and it works! Yes it has audio, but you only hear it after you record a segment and then go to play it back. So not while you're recording.. At least if you're just trying it out like I was for the first time right now.. Not sure about messengers like Skype (don't use those type of thing). Simple and no bs, worth it for what it does!
Since the reviews are all over the place I thought I should put in my experience. In short, perfect.
I am using it on an iPhone 4 to stream video and audio over a wifi network to my Windows desktop computer that is on the same network.
There is very little delay and the video quality is amazing.
This program does provide real time video and it works.
I see this is not everyone's experience, but it has worked flawlessly for me, so I thought I should let people know.
