How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

5.0 out of 5 stars See the World from Your Couch February 24, 2013
Verified Purchase
This app is well worth its $0.99 cost. There are over 160 pages of security cameras to choose from, with each page having at least 15 cameras to pick from. There are many locations that the cameras are in: Japan, America, Europe, and pretty much every part of the world has a camera you can view from. (Except for North Korea, of course!) Here are some examples of views that you can experience:
-An indoor skydiving area in Russia
-The skyline of New York City, located in America
-The inside of a chicken coop, which is a building that houses chickens
-The outside of a Japanese temple, complete with tourists and food stands
-A "doggie daycare" with crowds of dogs playing with each other
-A playground in India
-Sports stadiums playing games such as baseball or American football
There are many more examples that are on this app. You may even search the cameras by location or what the cameras see! I highly recommend this app to those who want to see the awe-inspiring spots of this great planet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing selection. November 17, 2012
By Doug
Verified Purchase
I very much enjoy using this app to view live video of places I know. its very helpfull for checking the weather too. Being able to control some of the cameras is fun. the only complaint I have is some of the cameras have very low frame rates. but that is not a fault of the app itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive! July 14, 2012
Verified Purchase
This app is WELL worth the 99¢ it costs. There is an amazing variety of cameras to choose from from local cams to places all over the world. Already this morning I've spent time on a beach in Japan, watched some Sharks in Switzerland, and checked on the traffic just up the road from my house. just don't do like me and purchase this just before bedtime.... I should've been asleep 3 hours ago!

3.0 out of 5 stars fun and works well, but a data hog July 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
This app works well, behaves pretty well, and is addictive, even for non-smart phone users. Controlling the cams that allow that is fun, and I think I even saw someone using the cam control to put themselves online. (not telling which cam....)

The only downside I have found, other than the amount of time one can spend looking at the web cams, is that the search is a little difficult to use. For example, I found a ski resort cam in Melbourne, Australia by paging through the cams, but when I searched for cams in Australia, it did not come up. when I searched for cams in Asia, it said there weren't any, despite the fact that several from Japan come up in the first few pages.

It runs pretty well most of the time, but I have had trouble with macro blocking on many cameras (bandwidth issues on certain cameras?) from time to time, and that can make it difficult to see clearly or get good pics.

This is a fun way to spend time while also getting a stronger sense of the movement of night and day across the planet.

Unfortunately, it is also a data hog, and you can use a LOT of your data allocation very quickly, like 5 megs a minute - which adds up fast. If you don't keep very good track of your data usage, this app can cause some "sticker shock" at the end of the month. Be forewarned.

I haven't tried it with a wifi only connection, but that might be a way to avoid using your 3G data limits.

5.0 out of 5 stars you can become a stalker January 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
Honestly I thought this app was going t be boring, but once it said that u could control cameras all over the world, that's why I bought the app,and then it got really addicting and sometimes you can fight over control over the camera, with the someone else trying to control it too! The most addicting camera app ever

5.0 out of 5 stars This is super cool !!! January 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
Literally a window into the entire world. Japan, Norway, Estonia, the UK, Canada, Antarctica and the list goes on and on. I am surprised that this App is not more expensive than it is. It is well worth the price I paid for it.

Give it a whirl. I really think you will like it. It can be mesmerizing in that there are so many possible locations and subjects. Have fun with it!
