Houston Skyline Webcam

I now have my own webcam here in Houston Texas. It’s a live view of the Houston skyline which is great for watching the weather in Houston. It also has a great view of the sunrise. You can check it out here. If you want to add it to SlothCam for iOS, click the link below on your iOS device (it only works in the paid version of SlothCam and you have to click it on a device with SlothCam installed).

Here’s a time lapse video I created using images from this cam. This video was

More on the Giglio Italy and the Costa Concordia Webcam

I noticed today that I’ve been getting a bit more traffic here than usual from people searching for the Costa Concordia webcam due to my previous post about it. I wanted to add that the webcam I posted earlier is owned and operated by Giglio News. If you like the cam, please pay them a visit and spend some time on their site as a thank you for making such an interesting webcam available to the public.

The URL of the Giglio webcam image is http://www.giglionews.com/isoladelgiglio_porto.jpg .

If you are using the paid ($0.99) version of SlothCam you can click the link in my previous post to install the webcam as long as you are viewing this page from a device with SlothCam installed. If you’re using the free version of SlothCam or the Dashboard Widget, you have to do it manually. You need to click on the white “i” on the lower left corner of the app to go into the settings screen, then click the + sign to add a new webcam, and enter the webcam URL above manually. Set the refresh rate to 30 seconds. I hope this helps!

SlothCam localization in Spanish and German

I just submitted an update to SlothCam to the app store yesterday. It has some minor bug fixes but also includes Spanish and German localizations! If anybody wants to help me write a localization for their native language, please let me know. It’s hard to translate my app into a language I don’t know.

SlothCam 1.66 released

SlothCam 1.66 is now live in the App Store. The latest update adds support for gifs and png images. Animated gifs are not supported at this time, however you can use an animated gif and it will show the first frame of the animation. The main reason I wanted to add support for these formats was that charts and graphs are often in these formats. For example, you could add this NOAA wave chart chart to SlothCam and always see an updated image which shows the swell height off of Galveston. Or you could add this Weather Underground weather graph to see what the current conditions are at a particular location (this one is near where I live).
