What's New in Version 1.0.1
- Timestamp bug fix.
Not a true functional ipcam waste of money.
After spending more than enough time with this.... Here's what I found out...
Here is the short of it: "to view iPhone "ipcamera" outside of the network.... You have to have a computer running iCamSource on the same network. That takes signal and allows you to view via iCamSource. You can't just turn on ipcamera and view from down the street.... And at this point they don't plan on taking the time.... To do what they make you think this thing is going to do. I found iCamSource very usefull for my computer lab and laptop. This app is not. It's clear the positive reviews are friends of the developers. As you will see reviews after this hopefully.... will tell the true nature of this app... Totally lame..... Here's info that I came across.
ipCam allows your camera enabled iPad to function like a network IP camera. """"NOT""""" ipCam therefore needs to be connected to a computer running iCamSource ..
The functionality of iCamSource built into ipCam has been requested in the past and is currently on our list of potential features to implement in the future. Unfortunately, we do not have any immediate plans to develop that feature.
Uhhhhhhh develope this feature???? I bought this ... Because you do not make it clear you need a laptop or computer running to view outside the network to use with your own product iCamSource.... Stupid.... What a joke.
This app is just awesome. I have been looking for something like this for a long time now and was not disappointed when I used it. It does exactly what it says. Get it and be amazed. I would put it up there in the app store essentials category.
Some suggested update features would be: the ability to control the video size and quality from the computer on which it is being viewed, and an emergency app close button. The emergency button could be used of you are trying to be sneaky with the camera but someone picks up your phone for some reason. The button located on the link to the feed would tell the phone to close ipcam, much like the button for the flash on/off.
Wanted to use as a baby monitor
I thought this app would be an easy to use alternative to a baby monitor. I was looking for something that would work on my wireless network and allow me to watch my baby sleeping by running ipcam on an old iphone 3gs. Affter paying for the product and installing it, I was unable to connect to the ip address of my iphone. I tried both with a browser as well as their icamsource software, but neither worked. I even followed the advice from their online support page, forwarded the apporpriate ports, but still no connection. I am very familiar with my router and have no problems adjusting settings, but nothing I do has any effect on my ability to connect to the ipcam. With this many issues and the required (but unmentioned) router setup, this should be a free app. Don't waste your money.
