Mobiola Web Camera is an application that turns any mobile phone to a mobile webcam which can replace a USB camera. The program is beneficial in sharing images and videos that may not be conveniently recorded using a laptop or computer webcam.
The program should be installed both on a handheld device as well as a computer to operate. Two distinct applications are contained in the program specifically for mobile phone to be used and a computer. The mobile phone may be connected to the computer workstation through USB, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth. Once the computer and mobile phone are properly connected, program function operates smoothly. Image processing between computer and mobile phone is dependent on Web connection speed. Mobile phones which can be used with the application include Symbian UIQ 3 and S60 devices, Blackberry, iPad mini, iPhone, Mobile Pocket PC from Windows, and Mobile smartphones from Windows. The program works with messaging applications such as Yahoo!, AIM, Skype, Windows Live Messenger, and Google+, among others. Other program features enable users to record videos, take snapshots, and add camera effects. Image quality may be customized such as compression rate and contrast. Landscape and portrait image orientation are supported. Mobiola Web Camera can also be used for online chats.
