What's New in Version 1.5
There is a lot of information about penguins. The live camera and the live weigh bridge data feeds make this app very interesting. It's the only way to be close to the action when it is not possible to be there physically. Visited the Penguin Parade last month and since then I've been checking the live data of this app almost every day.
