Mobiola is a software that turns your cell phone into a webcam. This can be convenient especially if you are on the road a lot and don't want to have to carry extra gadgets along with you. The application is very simple to install and even easier to use. It's a great way to keep in touch with loved ones when you can't be there.

  1. 1

    Install Mobiola on your computer by inserting the CD Rom and follow the instructions.

    Once you have completed the installation reboot your computer.

  2. 2

    Sync your smart phone with your computer by connecting it with the USB cable, opening up the smart phone software and going to “File” and “Sync.” This will install the Mobiola application onto your phone. Restart your phone.

  3. 3

    Open up the Mobiola application on your computer by going to the “Start Menu” and clicking on it. When it is open look to the far right and choose whether you want your computer and your phone to communicate via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or USB by clicking on the appropriate box. If you select the Bluetooth option, make sure that this function is turned on in your phone.

  4. 4

    Click on the camera icon on the Mobiola application and you should begin getting a picture of whatever the camera on your cell phone is seeing on the screen. Make adjustments to the picture by using the quality slider located on the right hand side. You can also adjust the lighting effects here.

  5. 5

    Turn on your messaging software. Once you have everything adjusted the way you like it, open up your messaging program. Mobiola is compatible with Skype, Yahoo, MSN/Windows Live, AOL IM and ICQ. Once the application is open, it detects the webcam (or in this case cell phone). If it does not, click on “Tools,” “Options,” “Video Settings” and find your camera in the drop down settings.
