Spy App


  • "I do like the app for being a freebie, sort of. I did purchase the watermark remover through my iphone, however it did not remove it from my ipad. Would be nice if the purchases would apply to related devices. Other than that, I'll be using it to catch whoever is helping themselves to lunches in the fridge that aren't theirs, even with the watermark."

Cameras no Longer


  • "No longer a 5 Star App! I do not like the new update. It is not intuitive! The presets get in the way of the view. I find the joystick very difficult to use. Too many steps to get simple things done. I hope this App does not continue in this direction or I will have to use another app. This was my favorite camera app for the last many years until now!"

Now it's just a guess and it can't be controlled with any amount of accuracy. Give the option of joystick or slide bar and it will be a 5 again. Was a great App but update made it an OK App. The joystick is next to impossible to use, and..."

Frame Rate


  • "...The developer's recommendation is to lower my resolution and frame rate. That would be a more acceptable answer if it had never worked previously...but it did. It worked great at 3MP/20fps with about a .5 second delay from the camera. Seriously, it worked great. Long winded review short, I can't even use this all anymore which makes it very difficult to recommend. The developer is trying to..."
