Locations 0.2.1

Locations Locations is now compatible with 1.1.3!! This is exciting news because this is one of Doug’s favorite apps! There is only one very small visual change with the update and that is the addition of a sentence below the Username and Password clarifing what they are for…there were also a few bugs fixes (listed below). I have to add that I seriously love the new search feature that was added with the last update (version 0.2.0)! It makes it soooo much easier to add webcams! [Read more…]

Locations 0.2.0 – Webcam Organizer

Locations is a great app that allows you to organize and view webcams. It does not allow for live video (Flash, Video, Motion-JPEG) at this time but only displays still images (JPG, PNG, GIF). You can however tap the refresh button and get the most recent picture from the server. This is great for monitoring a security camera from remote locations. The most recent update added a list of already entered webcams for you to add and you can add your cams to the list. It also added the ability to access password protected webcams. As I’m writing this I have 33 webcams entered. The first version use to crash randomly as I was refreshing the image doesn’t anymore. TIP: you can also scroll through the pics by flicking left or right. The only thing I would like to see changed right now is that when you open the app all the cam’s wouldn’t refresh because with 33 of them it takes a while, especially over edge.

New App – Locations 0.1.0

Locations Locations is an app that shows you refreshable static previews of webcams. It is available in the Installer.app through the Ste Packaging source. When you open the app your will notice that there are two default webcams already provided (though you can add more)…the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower. The Refresh button in the upper left corner allows you to update the previews of all the webcams at once. When you tap on it…a little window will pop up giving you the amount of KByes that you will be downloading and then gives you the option to continue or cancel. There is an Edit button in the upper right corner, it allows you to delete a cam by tapping on the red circle to the left of the cam and then tapping on Delete. You can also rearrange the order of the cams in Edit mode…just tap and hold the three lines to the right of the app and drag it were you would like it. When you are done…tap Done in the upper right corner. Back on the main screen…if you tap on the blue arrow next to a cam it will give you the Title of the cam (which you can change by tapping on it) and the url for the webcam (which you can also change by tapping on it). Then tap Back in the upper left corner to get back to the main screen. If you tap on the actual image you get this really cool Cover Flow style layout of the webcams…. [Read more…]
