As entertainment apps go, iSpy is something very different, interesting and fun. The basic concept is that your it will enable your iPhone will connect to many different public webcams from all over the world, and let you have a peek at what is happening.
Have you ever been to San Diego zoo? Living in the UK, I’ve never had that opportunity. But with iSpy I can connect to a number of different webcams around the zoo, and see what the animals are doing from the comfort of my sofa at home! The Panda Cam is probably the most popular, and the camera is clever enough to pan round and follow the animals as they move around their enclosure.
Of course, there are a great many boring cameras out there too – don’t expect something exciting every time you peek into one – using the “best rated” list is more likely to show you something interesting than just selecting a random camera. One thing that is great fun is that some of the cameras can be controlled by YOU, via your iPhone! If the camera you’re connected to allows “Pan-Tilt-Zoom” remote control, you’ll have a “Control” button – do try this out, it’s super good fun.
As far as I’m concerned, iSpy turns my iPhone into an entertainment device of the best sort – where there is always something interesting on to watch. However, do bear in mind that you’ll want a fast connection when using iSpy. I use mine at home over my wireless and it is great.
