Flash Webcam Tutorial

I made a tutorial video which explains how to find the JPEG image URL of a Flash based webcam which can be used with SlothCam. Unfortunately not all Flash webcams use jpeg images, but some do, and I thought this might be helpful to SlothCam users. Let me know what you think of the video, and I’ll try to make more like it soon.

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 1.65 is live

Slothcam 1.65 was released today, which fixes a slideshow bug when viewing slideshows of webcams on your Apple TV, and fixes a bug which prevented some webcams images from showing if the MIME type of the jpeg image was abnormal. Download it in the app store!

SlothCam 1.64

SlothCam 1.64 is out on the app store now! This version has external display and Apple TV support! If you enable apple TV mirroring on your iOS device and then launch SlothCam, you’ll see your webcam images full screen on your TV. Here’s an article on how to enable AirPlay mirroring.

Here’s a video of SlothCam and an Apple TV. I’ll try to post a better demo video and tutorial later.

SlothCam with iCloud syncing, coming soon!

I will soon be releasing a version of SlothCam with iCloud syncing. So if you add a webcam to your iPad it will appear on your iPhone automatically and vice versa. Of course this requires iOS 5 which is necessary to use iCloud. Thanks to Mugunth Kumar for his iCloud code which I would definitely recommend to any other developers looking for quick and easy iCloud syncing.

SlothCam FaceBook Page

I decided to launch a FaceBook page today where people can go to share their favorite webcam links, or images taken on SlothCam. You can also go there for support or just to talk about all things sloth related! Please check it out and “like” SlothCam on Facebook while you’re at it.

SlothCam 1.56

The latest update just hit the app store yesterday. This version fixes a problem with importing webcams that had international characters in the titles. Apparently there are a lot of international users of SlothCam, so I’m glad I was able to fix this issue. Also, it prevents a possible crash that could occur while importing webcams. I recommend that all users of SlothCam download this update. Please continue to let me know if you find any bugs in SlothCam so I can keep fixing them.

SlothCam Webcam Browser 1.53 with Multitouch Gestures

The latest version of SlothCam Webcam Browser introduces some new multi-touch controls. You can now skip back to the first webcam with a two finger swipe gesture to the right, and you can skip to the last webcam with a two finger swipe to the left. Also, you can now reload any webcam with a double tap anywhere on the image. If anybody can think of any gestures that would be useful for navigating SlothCam, please let me know!

SlothCam Free Released

Last night, my free version of SlothCam called “SlothCam Free” was released on the App Store. It’s basically a trial version which allows you to add up to 10 WebCams rather than an unlimited number like the pay version. It also does not have import export support, or slide show support, and it displays an Apple iAd. You can upgrade to the full version with no limitations for $0.99.

Here’s the App Store link if you want to check it out.

SlothCam 1.5 Released

Apple approved of the version 1.5 update of SlothCam tonight and it should be live on the App Store now. The biggest change in this version is the addition of a new slideshow mode which can be accessed via the action menu in the lower left corner. Slideshow mode will show each cam for a few seconds before automatically switching to the next cam. During the time the cam is showed, it will be updated normally, however you are not able to manually change cams in slideshow mode. Check it out on the app store and let me know what you think!
