IPEVO IDocCam is a great tool for repurposing your iphone or an ipad into a document camera. The app costs .99 a month or $9.99 a year. Once you download and install the software the only trick is creating a stand. Of course IPEVO sells a really nifty smartphone stand for $59.00. You can also use a cookie rack and a stack of books and position the camera through wires. A piece of plexiglass is also a good tool.
