Who’s Copying Who?

An iSpy Cameras reviewer from the UK recently wrote that:

It’s basically a copy of “live cams”

which is interesting since this is what Live Cams 2.4 looked like when it was released on September 9, 2009:

Live Cams 2.4

Here is what iSpy Cameras 1.0 looked like when it was released three days later, on September 12, 2009:

iSpy Cameras 1.0

And this is what Live Cams 2.5 looked like when it was released on September 24, 2009:

Live Cams 2.5

So naturally we beg to differ.

iSpy Cameras can be purchased for $0.99 from the App Store.

  1. Yup, I copied your interface because it was better! But considering my app was written in 2008 and released in January 2009 and yours showed up 9 months later, it’s safe to say that the basic idea and driving force for the development of iSpy came from my success.

    I don’t have a problem with Stefan copying my idea and producing a similar app. If you look at the App Store this is what happens when a successful app is out for a while. Look at how many stupid flashlight apps exist! The app store is a BIG place and there’s room for everyone. My compliments to him for producing a quality product that mimics what I did with Canon and Axis devices. Live Cams currently has more cameras and more features than iSpy but I’m sure that we will both be playing tag for the foreseeable future :)

    Enjoy BOTH apps everyone!
