I downloaded the app on my MacBook and it won't open at all. Never had this problem. Tried restarting computer, nothing. Can't open it from the launchpad or the app store. Any suggestions?

App would not work with my built in camera. And now that I've gotten an external webcam, every time I try to use the app either the app freezes (rainbow whirly ball of doom) or the app I'm using to adjust the picture (Zoom or Photobooth) crash. Wasted $8 and there seems to be no other way to manage camera settings. Mac fail. :/

Don't buy this. You're wasting your money. As like a lot of other apps, it is not compatible with Mac. I think Apple should reconsider they way that they are setting up their systems to match only apps and devices from Apple. It is almost a ripp-off what Apple is doing. I'm done with Apple and Mac

Like the others here, with recent reviews ... the app installs and opens, but none of the of the sliders are usable/configurable. It's like the app cannot connect to the internal webcam :o( Basic, and thus disappointing.

I bought this app for $12.99 and it did nothing. It doesn't work on my computer at all. Extremely disappointing and a waste of money.

The program gives me no control sliders on my MacBook Pro. Is there a fix?

I've been using this app on my Logitech C920-C for several months. The camera is fantastic and delivers a quality to our customers that matches our company goals. It comes with no apps for Macs. This app allowed us to zoom in close (it's a wide angle camera) and clear up the 50Hz lines (we're in the UK). I've spent more money on a bad cup of coffee in a hotel so I've found this app to be a real benefit. The only niggle I've noticed is that sometimes the settings don't set themselves in Skype while they immediately are effective in FaceTime. I seem to be able to get around this by ensuring WCS is running before opening Skype. For $7.99 this is a pretty decent product. I endorse it heartily.

i paid for this on the basis that it would allow me to control the motors of my Orbit AF .. but there are no controls for that in the panel. It is detecting the AF, and I have control over the bright, contrast gain etc .. but no sign of the motor controls. I have unplugged and re-plugged the webcam a couple of times .. no joy.

I'll be watching for future releases and a trial version. This would be a very useful and much-needed utility. I hope to purchase this when it is further developed.

Adjustments are not usable on re-start, so you must start over in most cases. If you make an adjustment while in "Auto" mode, the changes don't stick after you quit and then reopen Webcam Settings. If you make changes in "Manual" mode, it again just resets everything to default and back to Auto mode after restarting Webcam Settings. If you make adjustments in "Manual" mode, quit FaceTime, but leave Webcam Settings open, then reopen FaceTime, the picture goes nearly black and again, you must start over. The only combination that sort of works is leaving Webcam Settings running all the time and in Auto mode. Even then, it is buggy and, of course, you have less adjustablility than in Manual mode. Also, FYI, it has almost no control over a Logitech Orbit AF. (Tested with both the built-in cam on a 2011 iMac and with the Logitech.) This was my experience. YMMV.
