Best Baby Monitor is an app that means iOS devices can double as a video baby monitor. It sounds like such a simple idea, doesn't it? But admittedly it's one I hadn't thought of using an iPhone or iPad for.
The app is incredibly simple to set up. One iOS based unit can be placed near the baby's crib leaving it to capture and stream video and audio while the other device can be kept by the parent so they can check in on things at any point.
It works pretty much everywhere as it can work either via the same Wi-Fi network or via Bluetooth. There's also no problems when it comes to seeing the baby in the dark thanks to a form of night vision stemming from the iPhone's camera flash.
There's another way of monitoring through this app, too, courtesy of the Alert Call option. This mode simply requires the iPhone to be placed near the sleeping baby and it can then alert the user with a phone call or FaceTime chat when the baby wakes up. It's ideal for when the user only has one iOS device.
For $4.99, Best Baby Monitor is a pretty useful app for parents. That's not forgetting the addition of being able to play lullabies to the baby or the ability to record the baby's voice.
Best Baby Monitor is out now priced at $4.99.
