Deal of the Day: Get Mobiscope for 50% Off - View Webcam Video on your BlackBerry Smartphone!


I have to agreee. The only real benefit to this app is being able to record video. Other than that, Orb does the same thing for free.

Good to know about Orb since Mobiscope caused a 552 error on my Tour. To be fair, I think it's really an OS issue...but Mobiscope was the last thing I installed and I got a validation error and then removed via Options, Advanced, Applications. Did a battery pull and voila...552 error.

When I search for ORB I have only found that ppl use it to view videos, and play audio off their computer.
I thought this app was so that you could monitor via a PC camera?

WARNING: if you expect any customer service from this company, think again. I have sent three emails, in the last three weeks still have not gotten any responses back from their support.

Mobiscope video streaming really sucks. I literally mean that it is around 1-2 FPS. Unless they show improvements in transfer rates, this application is not worth it.

I don't need this app!

But I just want to say that they should have frickin' gotten a person who can speak English to do an English advertisement. Do you have any idea how frickin' irritated I got just trying to understand the sh*t she's spouting out of her mouth? Like what is with all that jibberish jibberish? Jeez..

I think you should have a system that takes down software deals after they expire. I was going to purchase the mobiscope for half price until I was told it expired yesterday. But the add was still up for today.
thank you,
Martin Stone

i think im unlucky to buy this app ! i tried the demo vids and yeh its like 1-2 fps

and still waiting for them to activate my pc !

they said one hour ... and now its almost 2 days and activation or a reply from the support :)

I bought the program. Installed it on my Mac / Leopard Mac OSX 10.5. Wonderful : it works fine. I upgraded to snow-leopard Mac OS X 10.6. Crash...!

I contacted Mobiscope: Here the answer:
Hello ....

Sorry for the inconvenience.
Please note that Mobiscope Desktop works on Intel-based Macs with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) only:

I have forwarded this issue to our developers.
We'll inform you about the plans to support further Mac OS in the nearest time.

Thank you for your patience!

Best regards,

Thanks for saving me the headache, moelders. I have Snow Leapord and was really considering buying the app. Guess I won't waist my time.

Thank you CB for having this forum.
