App Store Description

Browse your iPhone's camera and microphone remotely via Wi-Fi.

All you need is just a modern web browser (EXCEPT Internet Explorer). Even mobile web browsers are supported (iOS7+ Safari etc.).

You can browse the camera and microphone from the same network, and maybe from the external network.
*** External network access is highly dependent of your network environment so we can't assure it works.
