"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."
Important Note for Mac OS users: This version doesn’t work with Skype on Mac OS. Skype compatibility will be fixed in the next update.
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 various 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 new iPhones. You may capture either individual frames or the whole video stream.
With the free WebCamera desktop application installed on a computer, WebCamera is plug-and-play ready.

What's New in Version 2.8.1
I was wrong.
Picture is green and there are no settings to change resolution. Using USB connection - computer does not have wireless. Is that the issue with quality? Direct connection should be better, I would think. Revision: it was horrible the first day- I sent a note to support. They never responded by email, but the program updated and it works perfectly now.
Buggy and crashes often
This could have been a great app, problem is, when used with thier Mac desktop viewer/recorder, it crashes often, very often in fact.
The low quality video modes work better but look so bad they are useless, the HD mode is jerky and the sound stutters so much that it is useless.
Can't blame it on my Mac or my iPhone, they are top of the line.
(iPhone 6plus and Mac Pro).
Save your money, go download any of the baby free cam apps instead.
Using my iPhone 6+ as a web camera in obs to stream to twitch. No lag, looks great, and I can mute it. Shows up in every program I use as a webcam just like a normal webcam. (Tested with xsplit, obs, and ffsplit).
