Nice application but it could use a few easy features. I used this in concert with remote desktop sessions, WebEx etc.
1. Allow for smaller window: I would like to display what the camera sees in a smaller window so the rest of my screen can be used for a presentation
2. Allow a reverse FX: Writing on a white board is in reverse. If one of the Filter FX modes was a reverse, then the writing would be correct.
3. Lose the frame: The frame is nice but sometimes takes up valuable screen real estate.
Exactly what I wanted
This is a good app if you just want to show what your laptop camera is showing. It is nice that the window is resizable. I use it for demonstrations of model rocket building. I show people a close up of what I'm doing in my hands. Only problem: You have to use the built-in iSight camera. I need to be able to use an external camera that I can position properly. Also, it would be nice if the mirror didn't waste so much space on a needless frame.
This app advertizes a zoom feature 'good for those tough spots’, however, the quality is so poor you can’t see those tough spots no matter what you try. It’s better than nothing if you just have to comb your hair but that’s it. The free app Mirror HD is much better quality. I guess if you want to take photos with distortions and don’t need the actual mirror it’s OK but don’t expect to see any details on your face. By the way, this is the first 1 star rating I’ve ever given.
