Customer Reviews

Lifecam 3000 HD

My webcam was completely washed out in white and I couldn’t be seen on Skype even in a dark room. This app fixed that problem and it took less than a minute to get it corrected. 8 bucks for an app is far better than 20 bucks for a new webcam!

Works beautifully for me

This app has been a super addition to my iMac and MBP Retina. I’m using the built-in iSight cameras and its been essential for me to get good quality video for Skype, G+ Hangouts, Facetime, etc. The latest update made my life even easier by allowing me to update my profile. Great work Mactaris!!!!

THANK YOU For Making This App!

Works AWESOME with my cheap little Rocketfish Cam, which had no software support on my Mac Pro. SO grateful this is here. Flawless and immediate control.
