Worked perfect right away

I can imagine being frustrated if this didn't work, as other users clearly are, but it worked instantly for me, and is just fantastic. Couldn't be more impressed.

Great idea if it actually worked

Most apps at least work, even if they're buggy. This app does not even work. It's been trying to connect with my iMac which has istopmotion 3 installed, all night. Never once. Read through dozens of forums and changed all sorts of settings. At some point, you gotta give up and call it like it is--this app is a PoS.

Very buggy

App is very buggy, there is a delay when ever you snap a shot, image is very pixelated, and overall user interface is unresponsive, doesn't crash but has too many bugs to ever get anything done, id ask for a refund but doesn't seem like the developers have done anything to the app in years so i probably wont get a response.
