Anyone care to share their comparative views on the usability of both?
Downloaded both but can’t use either because it seems using a USB to lightning adaptor on the iPhone doesn’t allow access to the TeslaCam files

I've been using Cam Viewer with the Apple lightning to USB3 adapter and I really like it. The interface for selecting which camera is the primary view is the best of any I've seen.

The only issue I've had is finding a microSD card reader that uses less than 100mA since that's the limit for iPhones. I've tried 8 so far and this Vikasi is the only one that works without an extra lightning connection for power. It's kind of silly that it has a lightning connector and you can't use it, but it works with the adapter.

I’m using a microSD card with USB adaptor - not sure on power requirements
