    Peter Gallacher Published date: December 13, 2015

    Works perfectly on my Moto 360 2nd Gen paired with a Sony Z3 Best one I've used. The video feed is nice and smooth, and it stays up to date. Settings can easily be changed from the watch. Works even if the screen on the phone is off. The app doesn't create a shortcut in you're phone ether which is awesome, installs directly to the watch and launches from there! Full Review

    Works perfectly with HTC One m8 and sw3 watch I love this app. I have tried a few of these kind of apps and this one is the best. We'll worth the money. I like how I can take pictures without anyone knowing. Roll on the random pics. Thank you dev, I wasn't sure about the app but am happy I tried it. The app has quite a bit of lag tho which can be annoying at times. Look forward to an update that will fix this issue . Keep up the good work. A++++++ Full Review

    I purchased this app and it did pretty much exactly what I wanted it to do. Then one day, for some reason it just disappeared from my Huawei watch. Uninstalled and reinstalled on my Nexus 6P, but nothing. I tried to contact the developer writing a review and have gotten no response after about a month. Google will not give a refund for whatever reason. If this app works on your device, you will probably like it, but it may also simply disappear one day without warning and you are left with nothing.

    Sad to give this app a low rating. i LOVED the functionality and features. However, it vanished on my Note 5! I could not find the app on the phone after it was initially loaded. Total STEALTH MODE. Uninstalled and requested refund. I want to use it a soon as you fix this deal-killer of a bug. Full Review

    Loved it on my HTC 10. But with sony xz premium, the highest resolution for video is 1080p.. A little shirt of the 4k video it can produce. And less than the 1440 that the htc 10 provided with this app. Does not work at all with an LG style watch, loads but won't record video. Please update. Thanks Full Review

    Loved this app back in the day. Unfortunately, it's broken on newer devices and the developer seems to have abandoned it years ago. On a Google Pixel running Android 8.0 and a Moto 360 watch, it crashes immediately when you trigger the shutter. This app is completely broken, and I'm not holding my breath for an updated version.

    Not ready for prime time. I have galaxy S7 and Moto 360 first gen. The viewfinder lags about 10 secs behind realtime. Maybe use wifi direct in future version? I am not requesting a refund since it is only 2 dollars. Would be an awsome app if it can stay near real time. Thanks for your effort. Full Review

    I first tried lookbehind, couldn't take a picture, then I tried wear camera picture was very small and didn't fill my Huawei watch. Next I tried this on PixtoCam and its the bomb! Full picture on my Huawei watch, I can control the resolution, camera (front or back) flash, take a video or picture. Pictures show in my gallery in a separate folder called pixtoCam which is very easy to get to. Everything works perfectly, no lag like some people report. I do not work or know the developer of this app but thank you can't stop playing with it! Full Review

    Great features, wish they all worked. Zoom not working in either video or camera mode. Camera mode keeps crashing on my Galaxy S7. Video works except zoom. Confusing icons: cameras shows active when in video mode, video cam shows active when in camera mode. Hope this is fixed for the Galaxy S7. Full Review

    It's does what it says, but the pictures aren't nearly as good as the Google camera app on the pixel 2, so it can be a mixed bag. Hopefully they will add Google's visual core support for better imagery and a higher review from me. Full Review

    Ramon Carter Published date: April 3, 2016

    Absolutely Love this App I've never been this excited over an app before. There are a couple things I like to see added but I can't see not giving a 5 star Rating. It does everything. I'm not much of a selfie shooter, but I am now. What I'd like to see added. 1: Photo Playback, so you can view the picture you just took. 2: would be nice and easier if the pictures went into the phones regular picture folder instead of its on folder. 3. Voice commands to take picture. Even without those, the app is awesome! Full Review

    I love it - easy to use and works like a charm. Having said that, I do have a problem with aspect ratio - it seems to record with an aspect ratio of 4:3 but the resulting video has a 16:9 ratio. Any tips or pointers on how to change that? Full Review

    Just upgraded the Huawei watch to Android 2.0. And couldn't find this app on the watch. Google was also telling me it wasn't compatible. Trick is to uninstall on the phone and reinstall app back to phone. Then you will see a notification on the watch to manually install. Still works great on Android 2.0. Full Review

    What a great app! I've found a somewhat unconventional use for it, actually. I shave my head and whenever I travel there's often no way to see if I missed a spot on the back. Problem solved! :) Full Review

    I was excited about this app BUT it isn't letting me select 4k resolution. The video feature in my Moto360 only goes up to 1080p even though my LG G5 supports 4k, making it useless for my intended purpose. Full Review

    Decent Monitor on the camera is laggy compared to other apps, even of you lower the photo resolution. Photo quality is high, and UI is appealing, though. Update: overheats moto 360 over prolonged use. Full Review

    Jeff Rhine Published date: December 7, 2016

    First 5 Minutes I read the app description and saw the great reviews, but I still expected this to be some half-baked, slow responding slide show on my Huawei watch. Boy was I wrong. As mentioned in another review, the video is smooth and the controls VERY intuitive and responsive (slight lag <1 sec when pressing shutter.) the photos came out as razor sharp as if I'd been hold my phone and taking the picture normally. And the videos were equally high quality. Only con is no video streaming on watch WHILE recording video. Full Review

    Best camera app for android wear Using a Fossil Q Marshal and Note 5. Tried a few free apps but none were satisfactory. Took a leap of faith to try PixtoCam, glad that it's the best so far. But one problem is I can't find the app on my Note 5, it's completely stealthly hidden. It worries me a little. Is it a bug? Full Review
