Why paying for an expensive webcam when you can use your awesome iOS device for video conference? Better yet, your iOS webcam is wireless! Now you can use your iOS device to show around your house/apartment on your favorite webcam applications such as FaceTime, iChat/Messages, Windows Live or Skype.

PocketCam lets you use your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad as a wireless webcam (and microphone!) for your Windows-based computer or Mac (OS X 10.7 or above). PocketCam automatically forwards video captured by your iOS camera, which can then be used as if they come from a virtual webcam.

PocketCam works with any Windows-based webcam or video conferencing applications, including instant message applications such as MSN Live Messenger, Skype, AIM, etc. For Mac users, PocketCam works with any Mac applications that use QuickTime for video capturing, including FaceTime, iChat/Messages, GTalk, Skype and aMSN.

You can even record the live video from your iOS cam using a webcam recorder such as QuickTime Pro.


1. If you have not already done so, download and install the PocketControl for Windows or Mac software from our website:

2. On Windows, run PocketControl for Windows and make sure the PocketCam service is running on your computer. On Mac, run PocketControl, and run any application that uses webcam and select PocketCam as your preferred webcam.

3. Start PocketCam on iOS device, and the app will automatically connect to your computer. The bottom of your iOS screen should display "Connected to your_computer_name:port."

4. Start any program on your computer that uses webcam, and select "PocketCam" as your virtual webcam.

Enjoy live feed from your iOS camera as your webcam source!

Works as advertised!

This is the third "IOS device as webcam" app that I've tried (after WebCamera and EpocCam) and the first that actually worked. Connects easily and works well with Skype.

Good, but room for improvements

Using this in conjunction with its Mac companion app does work; it is recognized as a standard webcam in my testing. And the quality of the end video is decent, albeit with a sometimes choppy framerate.

However, the app has fairly poor UI that is somehow I unintuitive even though it is incredibly simple in scope. Also, there should be an option for 16:9 footage, if not outright HD. As it is, the quality settings don't even tell you the output resolutions. And I feel like my framerate should be better and more consistent given that my home network is pretty solid with a midrange 802.11AC router, and that I'm in the same room as my router.

But, again, it works, which is more than I can say for some other apps that are supposed to work like this.
