Which webcam do I get to go with the icam app?

I just found out about the icam app for iPhone - I'd like to be able to check in on my dogs who are at home while I'm away. My only issue is that I know less than zero about webcams.

Can you recommend a webcam that will work easily with my MacBook/iPhone? Low cost is important, but ease of use is the most important thing.

Also, I'm not married to icam - if there is a different way to do this that you rec, I'm happy to hear about it.

Input?

Does your Macbook not have one built in - at the top of the screen?

Actually, yes my mac does have a camera built in, hadn't thought of that (duh) - but as they are mainly in the kitchen I think I'd like to not leave the computer in there (and my head hurts trying to think of how to angle it), and if possible get one that tracks movement.

Does anyone have a webcam that isn't built in they'd rec?

I'd like to know the answer to this too. I had this camera recommended to me but I don't know too much about it. It has so-so reviews; I hesitate to buy it, but it's not easy to find a webcam that doesn't require a PC or extensive set-up. I hope someone else jumps in with their thoughts.
