Why use your phone as a webcam?

On calls, videos and live streams, a good camera will set you apart. Most people use a terrible laptop webcam!

Is it easy to set up?

The simplest way to use Shoot is to download the webcam driver for mac.

Testimonials, Reviews & Demos

"My favorite all-purpose camera app" - Alex Lindsay (Office Hours Global, MacBreak Weekly - 16 Feb 2022 Pick of the Week)

@michaelforrest thank you for your camera app, it’s amazing. - Alexandra Botez (@botezlive - Aug 03, 2021)

More value and functionality than any of its competitors I’ve tried ★★★★★ My go to app for features like WB (manual or auto) with calibration lock, ISO lock, Ev lock, SS lock, Focus lock, Zoom lock. Each individually, partially, or collectively selectable. Unlike its competitors, Shoot app gives me FULL control over each aspect of the camera’s behavior. A truly deserving 5 stars. - a-ctut - Dec 1, 2022 (App Store review)

Packed with features ★★★★★ This is the app I’ve been looking for, literally for years. I just want a clean feed from my iPhone camera on another device. There are other apps that will do this, but to my knowledge this is the only one that can do it wirelessly and in 4K. In addition, this app is being continuously developed and improved in 2021, unlike other similar apps which have been left to slowly rot. If you’re only going to get one paid app like this, this is the one to get! - SatisfiedCustom-er - Dec 3, 2021 (App Store review

how easy and smooth this runs ★★★★★ I wish I have found this earlier. It is the smoothest webcam app I have so far - moribana – Sep 27, 2022 (App Store review)

#livestreaming peeps ! Get on this #iPhone #app. I use the Shoot Clean Camera app for all my #twitch livestreams. It turns the iPhone into a clean-feed, HD web-cam, far superior than a standard webcam, and comparable to the quality of a decent DSLR/Lens

Here's a hack for those using Zoom for #MessyChurch or making craft. An cheap app will turn your plugged-in iPhone into a clean camera feed which you can share in Zoom just like you'd share a screen. No need to hold bits up to the webcam. I use Shoot

I met Michael through using his incredible iPhone camera app for streaming. He's incredibly talented and motivated, makes incredible music and is always working on something new.

I was absolutely honoured when he asked me to do a wee interview about my experiences on Twitch!

"Essential app for educators - Best app for my use case, streaming a clean HDMI feed from my iPad Pro into a Blackmagic Design Atem Mini as a webcam in zoom meetings. Only app that can also turn off the display while streaming video through the USB port to save battery. Developer is super responsive and friendly!" - 0301chris
