Iris adds some cool extra features to your Mac's iSight camera.

The application is easy to set up and use. You can take snapshots or make movies in real time or via time lapse. The fun thing though is adding filters to make your snapshots a bit more original. Iris can also be used as a covert monitoring tool if you're worried about your Mac being stolen or tampered with. Use Motion Detection and Email alerting to detect intruders and notify you, when you're away.

The fun thing about taking snapshots and videos is to share them with your friends and family. Iris not only keeps them well organized in a gallery but it also includes features to send them by mail, upload to Flickr or export to an Apple device like an iPod or iPhone. Again here the process is simple and quick and easy enough for any beginner.

Iris adds a bit of excitement to your iSight camera. Although the controls can feel somewhat limited, the application enhances the Mac webcam and in a way encourages you to use it.

Despite some limited controls, Iris empowers your iSight to take snapshots and movies, share them with your friends and even monitor your Mac.

Iris lets you do more cool stuff with your iSight. It offers the following features:

  • Take Snapshots
  • Make Movies
  • Record TimeLapse Movies
  • Detect unwelcome visitors, with Motion Detection, and Email Alerting
  • Broadcast your video over the web, with Iris's built in WebCam
  • Browse your snapshots and movies in Iris's built-in Gallery. Send them by email, upload them to Flickr, or export them to view on your iPod, Apple TV, or iPhone.
