Webcams Widget


*SIMPLE* 3x3 webcam widget that displays little thumbnail images of up to 9 webcam images (3 in the free version) on your home screen.

Tapping on an thumbnail image opens the image full screen.

To install this widget, tap and hold the home screen to open the Add to Home screen pop-up window. Tap on the Webcams Widget.

Then the widget will appear on the home screen.

Tap on 'Settings' to add the URLs for up to 9 webcam images.

In the free version, the images are automatically refreshed every 30 minutes. In the full version this can be changed by the user, and the automatic refresh can be turned off if required.

Known Issues
============
When mounting and unmounting your device on the PC, the latest images no longer display.
90 degree rotated (portrait) images may not display.
If you mis-type the URL of the image, the widget does not tell you, it just displays no image.
Widescreen images are squashed to fit the space in the 3x3 grid on the widget.
Images larger than 1024x768 have not been tested.

Future Plans
============
Enable swipe to next image on single image screen.

Not worth it. It does "work" but interface is horrible, hard to see, barely any options, 5 minutes or longer to update image. Not worth it, author should offer a little bit more not only aesthetically, config, and functionality wise.
