    I have a little bit of a unique situation:

    I have an elderly Mom that lives with me. We usually leave at least one family member in the house to keep an eye on her. But, occasionally, for shopping, etc. we need to leave her alone for a short time. I would like to leave my MBP in her room, almost like a baby monitor. So, I am looking for an App. that I can run on my MBP that will live stream audio from her room. I, in turn, would listen to it on my Android Phone by keeping the stream open and my earphone on while out. So, I'm looking for an App that can do this (preferably free, as I am currently unemployed). If a free one is not available, I will also consider a reasonably priced App. Any ideas?

    Not free, but check out Periscope and/or Evocam. They are applications to use say your iSight as a security cam, but I think both will also send audio.
