This is an application that does exactly what it says on the tin, it shows live cams in HD from around the world. If you own an iPhone then you may have come across Live Cams before for that device, but it has now made its transition over to the iPad. However, a lot of these applications that make their way from the iPhone and iPod Touch devices really don’t offer anything else at all and there is usually no reason for them to really make their transition. With Live Cams HD iPad App, this is certainly not the case, however.
When you first launch this application on your iPad you will notice that the application looks absolutely stunning. The extremely large screen of the iPad makes the app appear hundreds of times better than it ever did on the iPhone or iPod Touch and navigating around the application has become increasingly easier as everything spaced much further apart. This means that you won’t accidentally touch the wrong button on the screen like you might have with the iPhone and you will always have great control over the application.
The application has some absolutely fantastic features. The app gives you access to more than 3000 live cams throughout the world and you can actually view up to 24 of these cameras at one time on the screen if you are in thumbnail mode. Because the screen of the iPad is so large and high quality, even if you are in thumbnail mode the images of each camera are almost as large as they were on the original iPhone version of the device. If you really want a stunning view of the cameras then you can always opt for the full-screen view. If you opt for this view and you are viewing a high-quality camera then you are going to get one of the best pictures that you will have ever seen on the iPad and you will be able to see every detail extremely clearly.
As well as the ability to view many other webcams from around the world, you will also be able to add some of your own if you wish. Adding a camera to the application is extremely easy and can be done in a matter of minutes. One thing to note when viewing the webcams however is that they will work best when viewed over a Wi-Fi network. Now, depending on which version of the iPad you have, you may only be able to use the app on a Wi-Fi network but if you have the 3G version, it will actually work over a 3G network.
Overall, this is a fantastic app if you enjoy looking at hundreds of different cams from around the world and the quality of the picture on the iPad is exceptional. This application is available for just $1.99 from the App store and we feel that it is well worth the money.
