This close to being perfect
For the life of me I don’t understand why this doesn’t have USB support. It literally would’ve been, and I’m not exaggerating, the premium version of any other cam app here if it had this one small feature with the USB. The problem with WiFi is the lag and the latency. People wouldn’t have minded just plugging in their phone or that just being an option along with the wireless one. Other than that, I love that video quality change is free, I really can’t complain about a lot. But because of that minor problem I will still find myself using the other cams. Too bad, as I really liked the free features here. I’ll give it ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️/2

Finally found a perfect app to turn my phone into a PC webcam.
So i have been looking for a program for years to turn my phone into a webcam for my pc. I have finally found the perfect app to do so. I have been using this app for about a year now, i think. This app has never had a single issue for me and this app has always worked great without issues. I have bought the in app purchase for this app too, since the cost was not that much. All other camera apps i have used before this one had issues. Plus all the other apps i have used for this sort of things had resolutions and many features behind a monthly payment or just expensive in app purchases. Which was required to have features, Such as controlling it with my PC. Best webcam app i have used honestly and i like it. Keep up the good work, you are doing great.

Good but could be better
I have the app connected from my iPad to my Windows PC. It works nicely if you’re just running the app on both computer and iPad. Problem is that on the computer the program window will be small and you can’t resize it. When I tried using it as a webcam for zoom and jamkazam the results were the same. The visuals in both kept repeatedly blinking from the picture to black. I felt like a stroke warning should have been issued before I made my attempts. On zoom I tried sharing my screen and it worked, but again the screen was small and I couldn’t resize it. I paid $6.99 for screen control on my iPad but there are only a few things you can do: Flip camera, mirror, and brighten. I can’t really use brighten because my iPad doesn’t have a flashlight. I hope that if this app gets funded even more so that there would be more screen control options such as video filters, fix the blinking, and let’s me resize the window on my computer.

Was great but now doesn’t work
I’ve been using Iriun for two years and rarely ever had an issue with it (I’ve always wished the blank screen were black not green). Two week ago though the app to laptop connection stopped working. I cannot get the two to talk. I Update the app on the laptop and no luck. I know for certain they are on the same network. I’ve restarted and reinstalled with no luck. Edit: I tried a competitor and that didn’t work. It dawned on me that my eero network hadn’t been updated for a while (6months?). After updating the routers both work.

Never do webcam apps
So I got this app for my phone to save myself some money from having to buy a new camera. It worked great the first time, then after I got everything set up the second time, the app decided to take a nosedive. I tried restarting both apps on my phone and computer, disconnected and reconnected the cable multiple times, tried a different cable, but nothing. This is the second time I have gone through this problem with one of these types of apps, and they seem to have the same issue. Just buy a real webcam that doesn’t require you to install an app to connect it, just install the drivers and everything. If the free version doesn’t work, then the pro version won’t work either after trying it for the second time.

“Waiting for the connection”
The other day I was using this app to record a face cam video and it was working completely fine. The next day I open the app on my phone and my PC and it’s not connecting. They’re both on the same wifi network, I’ve tried restarting my PC, deleting both apps and re installing them, connecting my phone to a usb, and still nothing. This has been an issue for 3 days now. Please fix your app cause I’m sure there is a lot of other people with the same problem. Thank you

Potential. But...
I’m giving it three stars because I’m not sure if it deserves five stars because it would be nice if there was app support. I have a very simple question to ask and I would like to know if this app supports the recording of audio. there’s no documentation of that and while trying to use this application to record footage straight into iMovie I can’t get audio regardless of any attempt that I try. So far the video capture is amazing. But audio support would be much appreciated and I think the developer should get out in front of this and be more available.

not usable for IOS 12.5
Can not find the PC server(Linux client). but another iPhone run the latest version of iriun webcam works perfectly. People refuse old phones as webcam. So supporting old versions is very important for webcam APPs. So please fix old version bugs.

I think the free version is great
Before i start please add portrait mode thanks, I love the free version so much that i bought the 699 version or extension anyways the video quality is great love how you can use the flash light and change the res on the cam, the only thing i didnt like about the app was that i couldnt change anything on my pc so thats the reason i bought the better version. I would give the app a 4.5 if i could

Dope and easy to use
- no watermarks, there is a pro version but the free one is completely usable. Pro just adds some features. - PC app works well, and minimizes to the system tray. - It appears you have to set the number of cameras you want to use while installing and it could be nice to be able to add another camera at anytime but can’t complain that multiple cameras is even an option. - Overall 9.9/10 👍

It worked perfectly for my needs!
The Iriun app worked flawlessly between my laptop and my iPhone during a Zoom call painting demo that I did. I watched two different reviewers online who recommended this app…I am so glad to have found this app! 😍

For well over two years, it has been working well.
I have used several IPhones, several Macs and Win10 machines. And so far it’s pretty much always worked. It will work with multiple machine and phones, but for the best result I usually open 1 desktop app and the IPhone want to connect and follow up with the next. It does work with USB connected and the wifi off, I don’t know if this is a recent update, it didn’t do that before. Most of the issues come from other apps like zoom or teams randomly not showing some or any webcams.

Works fine
I am so happy to have found this app. Initially Zoom did not support it, but once I updated the Zoom app, Iriun was on the list. I had been shopping web cams but Iriun came along and ended my search. It’s just what I needed. Iriun makes my iPhone SE 2 into great webcam for my modest purposes, mostly Zoom a few times a week.

Focus issues
It's great that this app exists, and has a Linux client! I find it works well with the front camera, but frustratingly on an iPhone 11 the back camera tends to always focus on the background / infinity, rather than the user's face. Even in Pro mode there isn't an option to adjust the focus. Probably the ideal thing would be to have face detection focus, and an option for Apple's camera's portrait mode, if iOS APIs allow it! Would also appreciate a way to hide the image when using the front camera, it can be distracting to always have a large mirror while on video...

I think this app is amazing but please guys... the only downfall I see right now is that I paid for the pro features and I can’t seem to lock exposure like it’s supposed to. There’s no difference between the free version and the paid pro version. Please fix !!

Really good app for free and if you pay for it
The only one thing I wish it has is depth of field. If it can make the background unfocused and I’m focused that will be amazing. This app is so good I paid for it and is really worth it. Please add the depth of field

Works simply and well!
Only other feature I would like would be the ability to record video vertically. You can turn the phone, but it just turns the video you see sideways.

Zoom problem, can’t switch to tele cam, doesn’t always connect
Ran this for months as a teacher. Then with some updates Zoom now flickers and makes this unusable. The new desktop app doesn’t always connect, and then there is a race of restarting the app and the desktop app until it works, then it doesn’t. Two stars because it did work and offered HD for free.

Almost a perfect app
The app works great on both my phone and my laptop, I only wish he could connect via USB and not only Wi-Fi. Sometimes my camera will lag because of the connection where that would not happen is it was a USB connection

Support more than 1 camera
This is a very useful program. Suggested enhancement: support multiple cameras connected at a time (perhaps by running a second copy or by providing a single copy that can talk to multiple instances of Iriun).

This app is amazing and I appreciate the fact that is free, however, this app really needs a portrait mode so you can use your phone camera in portrait mode. Thanks!

Iriun almost Iruined my wedding!
I installed iriun and it worked great the first time I used it . I thought this would be a great piece of software to use for our Zoom Wedding. The second time I tried to use this App it took about 15 minutes to connect. The third time was even harder. On the day of the wedding we couldn’t get it to connect at all! Fortunately , we had a back up plan. Bottom line, this App is not reliable.

Worked perfectly
Being an entertainer, there are 100s of ways to go when doing an online show via Zoom, etc. I did my research and found this app. Last night I used it for the first time, with two iPhone cameras feeding into a PC laptop, and it functioned perfectly. Set-up was almost automatic, and once it was running, it did exactly what I needed. I will continue praising this product to others in entertainer forums.

Won’t Connect to Zoom Anymore
Was using this for a few months when in Zoom meetings. But this app has become obsolete ever since Zoom’s most recent update. I tried reinstalling the Mac Software and App on my phone but Zoom no longer recognizes the Iriun Webcam option. So until the developer updates everything, you should pass on this and consider other webcam options

Agree with PotatoSalad!
This could be the best iPhone camera app that works with OBS studio. The potential is there. It’s only missing one thing. USB support. The image is absolutely stunning. Wireless works great. We need USB to remove the latency. Other than that the app is perfect.

Meh... liked the remote controls...
Lack of remote controls is my biggest gripes with these types of apps... I want OBS Camera app except directly to webcam with remote exposure controls. Pro upgrade is ok but not far enough for me yet...

Very disappointed
I Just downloaded this evening. Running Catalina and an iPhone 12 pro plus. Same WiFi connection but for some reason doesn’t connect. Not user friendly at all and very disappointed in the lack of functionality. This is an absolute joke. Iriun get your stuff together and make a working product.

No matter what I tried, how many times I hit the rotate button, rotated the camera, or flipped the camera, the computer image would only ever show me sideways. This app failed at its most basic function.

I was initially excited about the potential of this app. Then I downloaded it. Tried using it with zoom. Disaster. Lagging video; most times never connects properly. Already wasted too much time trying to get this app to work. Don’t waste your time like I did.

Marginal at best
Down loads & set up were very straight forward, however, unable to resize to fit full screen make it pretty much useless. Look to another app to perform this function; I will immediately off load this product.

This app is great for actually connecting to the PC unlike other apps, but the quality is terrible, the contrast is insanely high, and it constantly lags and discounts to where it’s unreliable.
