Can an old smartphone be used as the camera attached to a laptop or computer, so that the phone is only being used as the camera?

    Software only works with webcam and DSLR Cameras but you can download the free trial version and test it on the smart phone and let us know if it works

    Do a Google search for any utilities that will do that. For example
