  1. I’ve been trying to use Epoccam… seems it doesn’t work with Skype. It has been freezing when connecting to my phone. just posted a comment to see if you know anything about this issue.

  2. Has anyone had success getting ANY of these to work with OSX Yosemite? I tried EpoCam and iWebCamera and neither can connect between the Mac and the iPhone. I assume it’s because the drivers don’t support Yosemite.

    • download the drivers, its brilliant worked instantly for me.. so good i paid for the hd version was was £4 i think approx.

  3. I think there is a mini industry of people recommending EpocCam and sharing the $3.99 app (sucker) fee when it doesn’t work again for the umpteenth time.

  4. I found a free app for using an iphone as a webcam. It’s manycam. Get the free app for your PC and phone then connect them. :D You can most likely google it and get more details.

    • Manycam. Tried it. It wanted a code, but no information as to what that code was or where to get/find it. Useless.

      • I’ve gotten a lot of benefit from manycam but didn’t know there were phone apps to go with it. I’ll give it a try and report back.
