    "great app ...except for the low-res, VGA-like quality"

    February 05, 2012   |   By zaiten

    Version: iGlasses 3.0

    Pros

    everything is great, good design, good functionality. They just had to screw it up big time with the poor resolution. I suppose this works ok with live video like Skype or Messenger, good effects. Then again, it slices resolution in HALF. it might have gimmick factor but it fades in a matter of hours. then you're left with a ****** camera app.

    Cons

    The iSight camera app on every mac takes photos in HD, 1280x720. This iGlasses app takes them at 640x480, this is like downgrading an iMac's webcam, like going back to 5 years ago when all we had was VGA. It defeats every good aspect of the app. Even for video, resolution gets sliced, so it's actually even poorer than VGA.

    Summary

    I wanted to like this app, it has so much going for it but they screwed up the resolution. Weather it is Ecamm's fault or Apple's for not letting the APIs go beyond Standard res, it is very disappointing that the developer doesn't state this problematic detail on their site, it's misleading and annoying. I had to go through the trouble of researching why iGlasses photos had such poor quality. What's worse is that this app used to cost $10 and now it costs $20, dunno why but it's not worth it.

    "It broke the camera in my Macbook pro"

    September 21, 2011   |   By Victor-Laszlo

    Version: iGlasses 3.0

    Pros

    If it worked it has some handy preset filters.

    Cons

    resets camera resolution to really poor

    Summary

    First, just visiting the website for the update froze my firefox to the point I had to hard boot the whole computer. When I did manage to download the update, it actually changed the camera resolution from a nice 720P high def to a crappy 640X480 SD and even Apple has no idea how to fix it. The company is ignoring my emails and wont help me fix it.
