MobiLinc Cam Viewer
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
One of the things that we like most about the iPhone is how ridiculously cool it can be for small, everyday things. The chances it affords us to boost and benefit our own productivity (as well as our happiness) makes all the difference, and is why we like the device so much.
A good example of this is with MobiLinc Cam Viewer, from Mobile Integrated Solutions, LLC. The app provides the ideal platform for you to access wirelessly, from your iPhone, your at-home IP-based cameras. It’s not only a lot of fun, it’s also extremely useful. And if that sounds like a deal, then go ahead and slide on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
The basic idea behind MobiLinc is actually incredibly simple, but is phenomenally useful. All one needs to do is download the application, setup your IP camera’s information within its settings, and then you’ll begin to receive streams of photos and data almost immediately.
The app works with a plethora of cameras—we would guess it works with every major manufacturer you could ever come across, in fact—and will do just about anything your IP camera can support.
For instance, the application will pull static shots or video from any camera you like. However, it will also give you the full ability to pan, zoom, or tilt and rotate your cameras as you see fit: Assuming those models support this functionality.
In essence, this means you can capture over-time a simple shot of your backyard, or watch your front-yard like a hawk while you’re three thousand miles away in a hotel suite. It’s a lot of fun, actually. In a way it makes us feel like we’re in a Bond film, while at the same time making us feel safer. And that’s worth a lot in our books.
Design and Interface
Obviously, MobiLinc is a bit more utilitarian than it is potentially aesthetic. To put it another way, we hardly expected the app to look so damn good. But lo and behold, it certainly does! It makes full use of both the aesthetic and hardware optimizations made in iOS 7.
The end result is an app that is elegant, simplistic, easy to use, and fast as lightning. These are complex and costly CPU processes at work here, and yet MobiLinc deals with it like a champ.
The price that MobiLinc is asking for (nearly five dollars) is bordering on what we like to call the Kenny Loggins Approved Danger Zone, but we can honestly say it’s worth every penny.
If you’ve already invested the time and capital into setting up your own IP cameras, then you might as well chuck in another five bucks to use this slick, and incredibly cool application. It’s the only IP camera tool we need on the iPhone, and it’s an easy recommendation.
MobiLinc Cam Viewer requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
