TrafficCamNZ displays internet accessible pictures of Traffic Cameras all over the world. You could use it for any image, even weather maps.
Images you choose as "Featured" are downloaded and setup side by side so that you can swipe across the screen to view multiple images quickly.
TrafficCamNZ works over the cellular network though it works best with WiFi because, usually, it's faster!
TrafficCamNZ can also use the GPS features in your device to show cameras around you. Try the predictive mode that predicts where you are travelling to display the next cameras (with known GPS coordinates) on your journey.
TrafficCamNZ now contains details of more than 7000 cameras from around the world. You choose which cameras are the "featured" ones. Featured cameras are easily identified in the Library; they have a Green dot next to them.
Managing your own personal list of cameras is easy too. This can be done in two ways:
1. Enter a new camera directly on the iPhone and key in the entire URL (http://mywebsite/image.jpg) or
2. Create your own XML file for importing into the application. Instructions on how to do this are available at the support web site or by contacting the developer.
* Pictures are displayed in the order they are received unless you set the image sequence number, you can then order the images how you want them
* Check your network usage when downloading over the cellular network
* Images are not cached, if you receive an image that isn't right (i.e. daylight when you know it is night time, that camera may not be functioning)
* Sometimes the traffic camera pictures are not up-to-date. You may see night pictures when it is supposed to be daylight or perhaps pictures don't change. TrafficCamNZ has no control over that
* You receive updates to the camera list automatically; a check is performed every 7 days when the application starts
* Tap the image on the main window to display it full screen
* Easily flick through the loaded images with your finger - this was the original idea behind the application
* Load your own web images
* Free version available, loads up to 3 images
* Full version available, loads up to 19 images on iPhone and 32 images on iPad
* Allows XML import of camera list
* Camera list (XML Import file) can be updated from a web site - doesn't require the release of a new application
* No advertising
Many great comments from around the world have been made about TrafficCamNZ:
* Great little app, what a time saver. I would often leave work to find the traffic all congested, now I can check before I leave and even if it gets busy I can check on the road and take a different route. I have set my own cameras and can quickly check what's what. A real must for driving commuters, couriers or even taxi's.
* This app works very well and is awesome if you travel a lot. Going on a road trip for work or vacation? Google the cameras for your cities, insert the URL into the app, and cameras appear
* I set it up for all the traffic cameras from Douglas County down through El Paso County (Colorado) and it works great! So well in fact, that I sprung for the paid version
* Make sure you enter in the URL's correctly - that's where some people mess up. What you see is basically what the traffic/weather cam sees wherever they are. They have to be viewable on the Internet first. Awesome app!
* App is very easy to use and I use it for going to work every day
* I put 2 of the most important traffic cams on the way to work and it works perfect
What's New in Version 1.9.4
In this version
● Updates to iCloud syncronisation between Mac OS and iOS. If you have upgraded to iOS 8 and had trouble Syncing changes between devices, make sure that you are using the same iCloud account across devices, that iCloud drive is ON - and that iCloud storage is enabled in the applications on both the Mac and iOS devices. If trouble persists - you may need to delete the application on your iOS devices and reinstall.
Previously... in version 1.9.3
● iOS 8 support
● Fixed some constraint/layout issues on the Camera Chooser screen
● Fixed some layout issues on the preferences screen for iPad
● Fixed a zooming issue when displaying images full screen
● Fixed a problem when showing preference screen - previously required a double tap on the preference button for first use
● Fixed a bug where the landscape view would not scroll properly until the device was rotated
● Fixed a bug loading the help
● Fixed a bug scrolling on the main view were the first and last images would bounce left and right when scrolled
● iCloud : if you are using iCloud to syncronise your camera data then the first run on iOS 8 may start up with the initialisation screen. Please wait a few minutes (suggest 2 to 5) to allow the iCloud TrafficCamNZ database to download and syncronise. The Refresh button will turn Red indicating that a refresh can be performed. This may happen a number of times as data is incrementally loaded - you will not have to press Refresh everytime.
● iCloud : If you upgrade iCloud you may be unable to syncronise TrafficCamNZ databases between iOS 8 and earlier versions of Mac OS i.e. Mavericks. For syncronisation to work properly your iDevice should be on iOS 8 and your mac should be on Yosemite.
