I’ve had this app for years and I used to absolutely love it. But it no longer works in Chrome and only sporadically works in Opera. Why the developers can’t update it so that it’s compatible with all apps and web browsers like how it used to be is beyond me. Definitely can’t recommend it any longer.

Great product, works on the apps that DO STUFF RIGHT. (Zoom is at fault for the incompatibility - there are work arounds on the net)

I hadn't used the app but the "can't use with Zoom" comments caught my eye as I was aware of recent changes to Zoom regarding virtual cameras. Then I saw this on the developer's web site: UPDATE: "As of May 25, 2020, Zoom has restored access to virtual cameras!" Also, unrelated to Zoom but 10.14 and 10.15 introduced changes that cause a conflict for other apps (https://support.ecamm.com/en/articles/3217016-iglasses-compatibility-with-apps). Hope that helps some folks.

This is crapware. It zooms in on the subject and then crops so when you try to use it for presentations - it will absolutely ruin them. What you see the camera capturing is NOT what is being recorded - total disaster - horrible software. DO NOT USE!

I used to love this app, but it's stopped working even with Quicktime a core system app. When I contact tech support, they are less than helpful, "I don't have any other suggestions at this time. I will mention it to our engineers, but it won't be on their priority list to look into."

Look, I like its functionabilities, but man, this app is obtrusive. It just sits there on top of my other apps with no apparent way to hide it, not even via alt-clicking another app. There's a neat icon in the top bar of OSX, but its only functionality is to bring iGlasses to the front. Where it already is. The demo couldn't be picked as a camera by Zoom. I would've gladly paid for a lightweight and versatile background app that helps me with my camera's color isssues, but iGlasses doesn't fit the bill. (Btw, I think the color correction bit should be built-in in Mac OS X anyway.)

No longer working on Mac. Like many others, I used to love this tool. However now, virtually all applications that use the camera no longer reflect the iGlasses option. I have installed and reinstalled but nothing seems to work lately. I am on Mac OS Catalina 10.15.

I'm not at all happy with iGlasses. It doesn't work with Zoom. Worse, their customer service failed to respond at all to 3 separate messages where I asked for help (or, absent that), a refund.. A waste of $20!

It works, but not that well. It has a "Shareware" license, which means that you download for free, use it for 7 days, then you cant use it anymore and you have to pay. I decided not to pay, I dont need it anymore. So I drag the app to my trashcan and empty it. Simple as that right? NOPE. Now every time I open up Apple Photo Booth, I am asked, IF I WOULD LIKE TO PURCHASE IGLASSES! NO! I DO NOT WANT TO PURCHASE IGLASSES!!! Seriously, Im a computer engineering student and i still have yet to figure out how to get the damn thing off my macbook. Do yourself a favor, and find something else to use as a webcam controller.

This app no longer works on the latest 27" i7 iMac. I am unable to make any adjustments within the app whenever I use it. I have contacted the developer and given them information on my system. This was over three weeks ago, and so far no fix to my problem. Prior to this issue it has worked well on my two previous Mac's.

FYI, MS is killing the Skype API at the end of the year. iGlasses and all other apps that use the Skype API will cease to function with Skype shortly. http://tech.slashdot.org/story/13/11/01/2323246/microsoft-to-can-skype-api-third-party-products-will-not-work

Developers site is down now, doesn't appear to be maintenance, there's no server there at all. Maybe it's temporary. I too have been increasingly displeased with iGlasses. Since I bought it several years ago I expected integration to get better and the UI still feels strange. OK, I know Skype 2.8 is very old but it has issues there too, I hardly ever use it now and it's constantly using resources so goodbye iGlasses.

It's getting very disappointing. This application is getting worst by each update version. Keep on adding features is not good enough. With the setting that I saved doesn't kick in. I had to reset everything before I can actually use it. This application doesn't work well in FaceTime with Logitech 9000 pro. Think of giving this up completely. How sad!!!

Great idea, but really really poor feature set for $19.99. It has less effects than PhotoBooth and only 1 page of the effects utilize facial tracking (so effects such as the censor acts only as a blob in the center of the screen that doesn't move with your head). It also doesn't make an HD FaceTime camera look any better IMO (just unnaturally bright). If this app were $5, I maybe would be okay with the limited features, but for only have some of the effects photobooth has, it's pretty unacceptable for $19.99. idk, $20 to have a couple of the swirling effects in a FaceTime call seems hardly worth it. Add more effects, masks, etc. that all utilize facial tracking and it will start to be worth it. There is literally only 1 with animation and it's birds flying around your head. lol. At least that one uses facial tracking though.

There seems to be a problem at the Ecamm web site. When I tried to update my copy of iGlasses 3.3.1 to 3.3.2, it refused. An alert informed me that 3.3.1 is the up-to-date version and would not allow me to update to the newer version. It seems the only way to update is to download the newer version from the download page at Ecamm and pay once again to register it. No thanks!

I am unable to get the Effects in the first pane, e.g Love Struck, Space Alien, etc. to work; all other effects work as designed. I have written to the developer a few days ago, and as yet, no response. Has anyone else experienced this issue and found a solution, or is just moi?

I bought this several years ago and it's still being developed and maintained. eCamm is a little slow with updates sometimes but after all these years they've continued to squash the bugs and have never asked me to pay again. I could live without it but it makes me look better, or at least obscure how hideous I normally look, for the short time my web cam is on. Still works with Skype 2.8.0.866, the last version that doesn't suck, on 10.8.1 so that's pretty cool.

I really liked it. I tried the trial when it was on sale. Then when my trial ran out I decided to purchase it. I went to the site and it was no longer at the sale price, it was double the price so I decided not to purchase it. Too bad they lost a sale because they drew me in on the sale price but did not lock it in while I tested it to see if it was a good fit for me. I imagine they are loosing tons of revenue based on this. So every once in a while I check to see if it is offered at the sale price again, in the mean time I look for another solution and if a competitor delivers something of equal value they will get my sale.

This is great, easy-to-use stuff, but there is one drawback: it's constantly running in the background, using very little CPU unless invoked, but this forces GPU equipped machines to constantly use GPU (rather than Intel Integrated) graphics processing as a result.

I really like the adjustable features iGlasses 3.1 provides. Without it, Photo Booth is boring and almost useless. I used the trial but I'm still a little hesitant about paying $20 for the software because something about it is not totally perfect. I really liked YouCam for Windows. There are a bit more cool features but they didn't save after a session ended like this one does. I missed the most recent discount on 2/24, so I'll patiently wait til there is another sale on it, if ever. *hoping & wishing*

I tried iGlasses in demo mode for about a week and although I liked it, I didn't really need it or use it enough to justify purchasing it. I ran the installer again, and used it to uninstall the application. You'd think that using the uninstaller supplied by the developers would do a good job at removing *all* files created and used by iGlasses, right? Guess again. CleanApp popped up after I dragged the installer program to the trash and found nine files and folders, totaling over 7.5MB that had not been removed by the uninstaller. In my opinion, this is a huge fail.

I've been an iGlasses user since v2 and I've always been happy with it. v3 got off to a little bit of a rocky start, but now at 3.1 I am happy again. It has very good quality enhancement, and a great variety of effects each of which can be fine tuned. The addition of auto-update is a nice touch. To top it off the developer has always been very responsive.

Very interesting software, but there's one issue that i'm unable to resolve. When I use the "Share Media" filter images and videos appears horizontally flipped (displaying in 'reverse' as it were), and nothing i've tried returns it to it's proper orientation. Does anyone know how to correct this?

I accidentally downloaded this app when I meant to download another one which was free. Once I tried it, however, I was glad I'd done this. I will purchase the license, and thanks to the developers! I often use my webcam for photo booth snapshots, but if the room is dimly lit, it's difficult to get a decent shot. The adjustments on this app make it easy to adjust lighting and many other small but important things!

A truly most excellent little app which vastly improves the use of just about any webcam. I have been using it for a number of years, and it only improves with every update. It works faultlessly with my new iMac, and should in my opinion be part of the Mac OS. Excellent value for money.

I just reloaded my old copy of keycamx and iGlasses is freaking out. It keeps opening and closing its control window over and over. So if you enable anything it goes on and of for what ever setting you have enabled. It seems to be only doing it with the built in isight cam and not my DV camera i have hooked up via firewire. Any ideas?

iGlasses is an excellent piece of software that lets you access options that should be built into the OS by default. I have been using it since OSX 10.4 and, as I have switched my computer and OS, so the software has come with me until 10.6, at which point compatibility is achieved only by running the applications that it is modifying in 32-bit mode. There really isn't a noticeable difference between running an application in 64- or 32-bit mode, honestly, and my girlfriend continues to use it on her iMac under 10.6 and is perfectly happy with it and the performance of her applications. I, however, can't bring myself to install it on my MacBook while it's doing that. Once that issue is resolved, and I'm sure that it will be eventually, I will happily reinstall it.
