I can’t decide whether this is useful or not. First, it must be said, it’s cool. Everyone wanted video chat with the iPhone despite the orientation of its camera, and some mirror-based products have addressed that problem. They’ve made this app so that there’s no configuration necessary, it’ll show right up in iChat or Skype. The question is whether iPhone owners, who are very likely to own newer macs, have need of another webcam considering there is a perfectly good one built into the bezel of every MacBook. There are still plenty of people with old boxes and laptops, of course, who could use this app, but whether or not it gets picked up by many users it’s still cool as a proof-of-concept product.
