Spy just like… a real spy! Spy Cam is the easy to use app that turns your Mac into a stealth surveillance system. Covertly record clips and sound from your Mac’s camera, or an external camera, and upload them to view remotely. OSX El Capitan Ready!

Spy Cam is easy to use, and is a ranked #1 top paid utilities app in the US, UK, Canada, France, Italia, Germany, Brazil, Australia, Finland, Austria, Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland, Israel, Russia, Japan and China!!! 

Spy Cam turns your Mac into a surveillance system that records video clips with sound. You can store the clips to view them later, or automatically upload them so you can see what’s happening remotely!

Spy Cam uses your Mac’s built-in camera and microphone, or an external camera and microphone, to take video clips of whatever it is pointed at – your desk, your front door, a filing cabinet, the refrigerator, or anything else you want to monitor, including who is using your Mac when you are not there.

By linking Spy Cam to your Dropbox account, it automatically saves the clips to your Dropbox file as they are shot, so you can view them from wherever you are – downstairs, across town, or on the other side of the world. 

With Spy Cam you can:
• Monitor your home or office while you are away
• See if your kids are doing their homework
• Check on the babysitter
• Monitor your pets
• keep an eye on your desk, personal papers, and on your Mac
• And, if your computer is taken, you have videos of the thief, their surroundings, their voice, and maybe even their name and other personal details.

Review by Joshuamccabe319

NO OPTIONS!! - This would be a better app if you could control a few of the options, like where to save the video files, being able to program what time of day the app will start and stop recording. You should also have to option to record with motion detection this is the only one that does not!. The only good thing about this app is that it runs in the background undetected… if they would polish this app and make it more user friendly and better option control it would be a fantastic app, but as is, it needs MAJOR updates…. DEFINATELY not worth 10 dollars!!!
