WorldView puts global webcams in your pocket, in a really lovely little free app.
What’s lovely about it isn’t the webcam shots themselves – frankly, once you’ve seen one blurry shot of the Eiffel Tower in the rain, you’ve seen ’em all – but it’s the little extras alongside the images.
The developers at Buzzworks have thought to let you do stuff with each webcam view. Save the image to your Camera Roll (hmm, what fun could you have with that by using it in other photography apps, I wonder?), or even better, show a map of the webcam’s position.
This feature is great, it really brings together the photography and the geography. The map opens within WorldView, but there’s a button that opens the same map in the built-in Maps application if you want to explore further.
Like I said: lovely.
