Have you been looking around for a free program that allows you to turn your iPhone or Android phone into a webcam that you can use to stream live video in chats? Yes, you can do video chats right on the iPhone & Android phone using apps like Skype but then, that’s going to be at a cost: you either don’t get the good quality of the iSight camera, or if you use it, you don’t get to see the other person. Fine, what’s the solution? Turn your iPhone or Android phone into a webcam for your system. Things are as simple as they sound thanks to this apps that are designed to turn your iPhone or Android phone into a webcamera that you can use for all your video chats on programs like Skype, Google Hangouts in Google+. Etc.
EpocCam by Kinoni
Price: Free (HD version available)
Apps that turn your iPhone & Android phone into a webcam aren’t usually free. The good ones are sold at over 3 dollars apiece. Interestingly, this version of EpocCam is free and comes with a neat set of features. The performance isn’t all that great but it’s passable. The HD version is an epic one though: has everything you’ll possibly need.

Blackberry World Application List
Whats In & Whats Out
By Corey GmaN
Lots of topics going around with apps in Blackberry 10 and if they are going to be included or not, so I made a current list, and I can constantly update it to keep track if it is or is not coming to blackberry 10. Will be nice to have one reference point to view. I am not going to list every app that is going to be in Blackberry World, lets try to key on the top 200 or so apps. The bigger players in the market. And just to stop some of the rants, we all understand that you only need certain apps for your lifestyle, but just keep in mind everybody is different. I am also assuming a lot of the not included apps will be announced before the phones are available in the US.
- If you can use the app in the browser, it is not counted as included in Blackberry 10
- If the app is side-loaded from android it is also not counted as included in Blackberry 10
