For this video I demoing an app currently under development called Camo from Reincubate. It’s a macOS app with a companion iOS app to allow you to use your iPhone or iPad as a webcam in many popular video calling apps like Zoom, Meet, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Slack, Cisco WebEx, Houseparty and many others.
You can sign up to try and test the app out before it’s launched at Reincubate’s website. Once it’s released it will be an app they charge for – but in my testing so far, I think it’ll be worth it. The ability to control your iPhone or iPad’s camera from your computer is awesome and saves a lot of fiddling with an iOS app while you’re trying to have a video call.
In a previous video I used a free iOS app called “Full Screen Camera” to give a clean video feed to streaming apps like Ecamm Live. And that works great for that purpose – but if you’re wanting to have a video call with Zoom, you don’t want to necessarily fire up a live streaming app at the same time. Camo looks like a great app to have in your toolkit.
