    DroidCam Wireless Webcam's review

    Published: 2011-05-16, by .

    DroidCam allows you to use your phone as a webcam by synchronising it with your PC

    • Connect with PC via 3G, bluetooth, Wi-Fi and USB
    • Varios video formats and HD supported
    • Windows and Linux supported
    • Need to download computer client
    • Works for 2.1 and later
    • Forceclosings and crashes
    • Some messenger services don't recognized it

    "Turn your Android into a webcam to be used in your PC"

    This is one of those original ideas that makes our life easier. We all like to increase the potential and the functionalities of our Android, and this app it's on that track. It uses the back camera (or the front if you prefer it) of your device as a webcam. You will need tough to donwload the app from the market, as well as a desktop software to your PC. It works so far for Windows and Linux computer clients.

    Once both software will be installed, you may introduce you IP address in the app and start to videochat through the videocall messenger service you prefer. What's more, you can connect via 3G, bluetooth and USB (that works over ADB Bridge). It supports varios video formats and high resolution, but it just available for Android 2.1 and later.

    It has to be said that the idea is great but has some flaws. some messenger service as Yahoo don't recognized it. What's more, there are some bugs, especially in the latest updates: forceclosings, error messages and crashes. We hope it will be solved soon, because we think it's a really worthy app.

    This is the free version of DroidCamX. If you like the application you can get the paid version for $4.25 with improved features.

    DroidCam Wireless Webcam has been developed by Dev47, an emerging developer who has just launched this app (and its paid version) in the market.

    This is one of those app that makes us save some money by adding new functionalities of our Android. Some points need to be improved and some bugs fixed but we think developers are on the right track.

    Eats up battery like none other. Continuously freezes up on me and I have to exit the app and reconnect. Yeah.. it works.. but it's not good at all.

    Started using droidcam to stream on twitch. OBS picked up the camera immediately and I've had rather great success using my phones camera. Actually the only thing obs did correctly without tweaking was using droidcam. Anyone i see mentioning a webcam being broken or not having the money to buy one for their streams get an immediate recommendation. I understand locking HD behind the pay wall they deserve to be paid for this app. Will be upgrading as soon as i can! Thank you Dev47 this $hit rocks!
