Customer Reviews

Works perfectly

Good app. Exactly what I was looking for and it's nice it can send pics to my email. Doing the test pic took a dark pictures at first for some reason on my Macbook Air 2013, I pushed save and restarted and worked perfectly after that.


The program takes pictures and will email them just fine, but the preferences pane crashes and so does the folder browser when selecting where you want to save the pictures. I once turned off the motion detecter and it was still taking pictures. I don't reccomend this program right now.
