World Live Cams: Watch Live Cameras Around the World [Giveaway]
Has it ever been an interest of yours to see what's going on around the world?
World Live Cams
is a new application in the App Store that you can download for 99¢ that lets you view countless areas of the world from the perspective of some camera laying around somewhere. The locations are all marked both with names and with longitude and latitude coordinates. With World Live Cams, you can watch these cameras all day long or just to take a peek around the world. There are always new cameras and locations being added daily to their database.
World Live Cams gives you the ability to zoom in and out of an image at your leisure so that you can see what's going on in any given location made available through the application. This application isn't for setting up your own camera and viewing it on your iPhone, it's simply for entertainment purposes so that you can view what's going on around the world with a camera on their database. After you launch the application, the first thing you see is the extensive list of cameras available for viewing:
Each camera is rated out of five stars. You have the ability to search for locations from the search bar at the top or you can just peruse through the long list that they give you. It is a pretty cool application because it broadens your views of the planet in different locations so that you can get an idea of the best places to vacation to or see some pretty interesting things happen on camera. When you tap on one of the cameras, the footage becomes available immediately on your screen:
From this screen you have the ability to like and dislike a particular camera shot; to be able to like the camera you are opted to sign in with Facebook, Windows Live/MSN, Twitter, or Yahoo! account. It also gives you a whole lot of information regarding the camera. You can make the shot full screen or leave it how it is, but the best part is that this application supports both portrait and landscape mode to you can watch it with the comfort of having your whole screen filled with content instead of focusing your eyes on a small rectangle in portrait view. If you don't like picking cameras from a list, you can also pick from map view which lets you see cameras based on their location on a map. The more you zoom in, the more cameras you will find available to you:
The developer is planning some pretty interesting updates for the application to come such as a free version with ads and a universal application that works with all of the iDevices instead of having to pay individually for the iPad regardless of owning the iPhone version or not. The developer also states that coming up in the next update are distinct camera categories, detailed camera information, pinch guestures, and adding user's private IP-cameras. Together, this makes the one-dollar price tag seem all worth it for people that like to see what's going on everywhere at all times.
