Version 2.0.4
Review by Sue Larsen

Solved the issue of my webcams looking different! - I am a musician/songwriter who is accustomed to performing live 2-4 times weekly, With this COVID-19 challenge, performing live is not an option. I knew I would have to start streaming eventually but, this kicked the learning curve up a few notches. I planned on using 2 Logitech 9000s, which aren’t the newest, but good enough. I have a MacBook Pro running High Sierra and a Mini Mac running Mohave. When I hooked up these 2 cameras to OBS, even side by side, they didn’t have the same picture qualities no matter what the settings. I searched the web for a work around. Manual Camera did not come up in my searches. The other options that did come up had less than stellar reviews, around 50%. After reading the reviews for Manual Camera I contacted Terry with a question about controlling multiple cameras. Terry got back to my email in about an hour with the exact work around, which is just dublicating the software as many times as you have cameras. Easy! If my cameras were the latest or greatest more options would be available to adjust. That’s not needed in my case. Some people may complain about paying for an app…hey, I can do a lot of things but, designing software is not one of them. Thank you Terry for your creative, persistent, and resilient self!

Review by PVD CAB

Don't Buy! Doesn't work, Apple doesn't care - We bought this to work on how our camera looked for broadcasting. This app does nothing! Forget the way the cam looks in other apps, even withing the Manual Camera preview the sliders do absolutely nothing for our facetime camera. More shocking than the app being useless was Apple's complete unwillingness to refund the dud purchase. Tried to ask for a refund within minutes of purchase, explained that NOTHING happens with this app, and was told too bad, so sad from Apple. So don't take the risk. It doesn't work and you'll be stuck with the bill when it inevitably fails.
