You get what you pay for!

While slightly on the steep side of pricing, I have to admit that you get what you pay for compared to other similiar apps. While there are many free and less then $5 webcam apps out there, they all are either a woefully hard app to set up with making users access routers and make adjustments, downloading software to set up dynamic servers, terrible GUI's and pixelated webcam images...This App is not a part of these problems!
ProCamPlus is a fairly easy to set up app on both your computer and the iPhone. You will have to install free software to your desktop that is both so simple that it is scary and the iPhone setup is similiar. The setup instructions are pretty straight forward and to the point although there may be a few issues any user can work out. The main part is that when you set up your iPhone you need to enter the internal IP given from the installed desktop application and enter the external IP from the website that you downloaded your software from. This is not clear in the instructions. Then enter the listen port identified in your desktop application and set up a good strong password which accepts all characters (a plus).
The app and desktop GUI's are simple and very easy to use. Very clean and attractive with the retina display on the iPhone. Works over 3G and WiFi and with the adjustable framerate all the way up to 30fps, provides a very clear unpixelated image. There is slight time lag between the transfer but not the jerky robotic lag that you see in other apps. Lastly, the customer support is EXCEPTIONAL! I sent two emails on a Saturday with observations, questions, and feedback and both emails were replied to in the SAME DAY! Emails were courteous, provided links to answer questions and all replies were easy to understand and technical jargon left at the office. Lastly, todays computers are always set to auto update security and software patches which cause the computer to reboot and effectively shuts down the majority of like apps, making them useless when you are at work or on vacation. AGAIN, this app does not fall into this pitfall. Fully tested multiple times, this app restarts with your computer and will never leave you wondering what is going on when you are not home. The app does so much more, but that is already covered in the description.
The ONLY two downfalls are the price as already mentioned and to me not a big issue but will be for others in todays economic situation and as I stated, you truly do get what you pay for when you compare apps and I have tried at least 6...all paid. The last downfall is the missing Pan and Tilt controls that should be included with an app of this price. 90% of all webcams are now controllable with pan and tilt functions and an app that controls these is essential and should be required. This functionality is missing from this app and I addressed the lack of functionality in both emails and I have been assured that this functionality is coming to the app for free but will not be available for a few months while they build it right and test it. I truly believe that it will be a highly functional tool when all said and done. Even with these two pitfalls, there is nothing that I can do or say that would deserve less than a 5 star rating. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this app for webcam viewers that use them for security, pet monitors, or other purposes.
I would like to commend the team for an exceptional product and quality, reliable customer service!
I look forward to future updates and functionality!
