Turn a mobile phone into a PC webcam
Did you know that you can use your old mobile phone as a webcam for your PC? All you need to do is connect it to your computer via wifi or USB and download the APK file of this handy app.
How to use a smartphone as a webcam
iVCam is a tool that allows you to use an old smartphone as a webcam for a PC. This will be especially useful if your computer's camera has broken down or if it's not very good (it's not uncommon for your mobile's camera to be better than your PC's). Or if it doesn't have a camera at all, an aberration in the age of video calls.
