CamViewer for IP Webcams, with Audio purchase!
By John McKerrell
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Really simple viewer for Foscam, Tenvis and similar IP webcams with lots of features and iCloud syncing.
2-way audio support available for some non-HD cameras. In-app purchase for audio support varies in quality depending on camera.
Allows you to view and operate multiple webcams storing the details for each one in the app for easy access. Offers access to operator controls including panning, modifying the infrared lights, patrol mode (double tap an arrow), recentering (double tap the center control) and modifying the camera properties.
Digital zoom now allows you to pinch or double tap to zoom and pan the view. To enable this in landscape mode click the icon to disable the pan controls.
Currently only tested regularly with Foscam FI8908, FI8918 & FI9821W and Tenvis JPT3815 & iProbot 3 but users have reported success with some Storage Options, Apexis, Instar, Hootoo, ebode IP Vision, Watchbot, Axis, TP-Link, TRENDnet, Abus, Asti, D-Link and Wanscam branded cameras.
If you have problems using this app please report your problems through the app or contact us on the support link so that we can give you help.

What's New in Version 2.0
iCloud Syncing Support!
Think of v2.0 as the El Capitan to 1.9.xxx's Yosemite. Lots of changes and improvements to the underlying code but not so many visual or functional changes. There have been some good functionality updates recently so I thought with those and the iCloud support in this version it was finally time to bump up to v2.0. I'm expecting the transition from v2.0 to v3.0 to take a lot less time than from v1.0 to v2.0!
I know I promised an icon update when v2.0 came along but it seems like Apple has finally caught up with the minimalism of CamViewer's UI (or at least they did back with iOS7) so the icon's hanging around, at least for a little while longer!
Works very well for viewing and controlling my Foscam IP camera. I can pan, tilt, etc. with ease. One of the best features is that everything works in landscape mode, if you choose to view it that way. Some other apps only work in portrait mode. This feature is especially valuable when viewing on iPad. Occasionally, it will drop the connection with the camera, but I click on "retry" and it reconnects. I've been using this app for years. It's proven reliable.
Have been using this app for years to watch my home and pets. Multiple foscams, multiple devices running this app. Couldn't ask for more.
iCloud sync not working.
Love the app but the latest new feature not working. Tried on multiple devices and same error on all. "Unfortunately setting up iCloud syncing failed". Please fix.
