What Is This?
I was and am still looking for an App/Camcorder (Video Recorder) that uses iSight and has the ability to allow lighting/saturation adjustments (since iSight is made for low light and saturates w any background light). This “Willing Webcam” looked like a Video Camera. After about an hour of trying to figure out what this app did - I gave up with a pile of still photo’s. USELESS…and Terrible interface instructions… If anyone knows of an app that meets my needs - please advise.
