Phone into webcam
The iVCam app is a free programme that lets you turn your mobile, either Android or iPhone. or even your iPad into a webcam for your computer. You can either connect the device to the PC by the WiFi connection or through a USB cable. The app offers you HD resolution video with a watermark.
With iVCam, you can improve your experience by changing the quality of the video. If you have poor internet, you may select the 360 resolution or when the speed is better, choose the HD resolution. Also, you can select where the audio comes from, that is, the device or computer.
The free version comes with a watermark and ads. If you purchase a subscription though, these are no longer there. You can also beautify your face or flip to the back camera on your phone through the setting.
Easy to use
Using the software is simple. Once you have the app downloaded on your device and your PC, you can begin to use it automatically. The connection is instantaneous and works across multiple gadgets.
If you prefer to connect via USB, iVCam will instantly detect the connection and make it available for use. You can make the application the default web camera or choose between different options.
The programme suffers from some connection issues. Without warning, the gadget's link will stop working. This problem may continue for a long time or be resolved after a few minutes making iVCam unreliable.
EpocCam is a great option, but it falls short of the others in key ways. While it works on both macOS and Windows, unlike iV, it does not offer high definition resolution in the free edition. Its UI is inferior, and it lacks the flexibility in setting, in contrast to iVCam.
Another alternative is DroidCam. Unlike the other two options, it has no watercolour. It also does not offer high-res video or the flexibility of iV.
Overall, this application is a solid option for those who need to use their smartphones as a webcam. The main problem is the instability of the connection; however, this rarely arises. The software has several useful features while providing high quality. It's worth picking up.
