Use Your iDevice to Spy on Your Neighbors or as a Nanny Cam [Daily Freebie]

AirBeam is a clever little app that lets you output realtime video from one iDevice (camera-equipped, obviously)  to another iDevice on the same local network. The app usually sells for  $4, but it’s free today through Saturday.

Resolution isn’t bad: 640×480 at up tp 30 fps. Certainly good enough to catch your cat stealing last night’s meatloaf from the top of the counter. It also works without much fuss; I’ve played around with it a bit, and my iPhone automatically picked my iPad to stream video to (both devices must have the app installed — not a problem, since AirBeam is a Universal App). You can also monitor multiple cameras at the same time. There’s veen a recording fucntion, so you can save what you see as evidence.

But AirBeam will get even cooler with an expected update on Sunday — stay tuned. Definitely worth a download.
