Are you ready to Mango? Let me know please...

11. January 2012 12:34 by Jerry in IP CAM

Recently I received a couple of great ideas from users (thanks, really!):

  • Live Tile support
    haven't made up the details, but one thing for sure is that the snapshot could be pin as icon or background
  • Pin the camera you created on IP CAM Controller to start screen
    this is really cool! Extremely fast to access to your camera, it's really one tap does the job. Moreover, you could use the camera snapshot as the back tile backgroup. (In Mango, each Tile has front one and back one, they are dynamically switched by the phone automatically)

However, as some of you may or maynot know, the current app is developed on earlier SDK (what we called 7.0 version) so that it's compatible with Mango and non-Mango (such as NoDo) devices. The above two features cannot be supported until the project is upgraded to SDK 7.1 (Mango SDK).

Once the project has been upgraded, the app is still available for non-Mango users, but they will not receive any update nofitication from marketplace, in other word, their IP CAM Controller will stick with existing version (v1.13) and not able to upgrade to any newer version until their phones are being upgraded.

I don't know how many people are still using earier version of Windows Phone, so I made a poll here, to collect your opinions and what phone you are using.

Sounds good to me. Also, if there is anyway to get the cameras to be more "live". That would be awesome. In other words, my camers get a new image anywhere from 3-20 seconds. I am not sure how much control over this you have. But it would be nice to see them get new images at least every second. That would make them look more like they are live motion rather than stop motion. Thank You.

Nokia Lumia 800.
I really like the 2 new ideas. It would sets this apps a part from other apps are out there for andriod or iphone.
I like JGold feedback on scheduling a periodic refesh on the tiles images, but I think it is important that the timing controls must be made flexible to the users. I seen quite a few apps that are restricted by preset cycles, such as every 30sec, 1min, 5min, etc.

The 7Link RoboCamII is not support at the 7Link settings!
I must set the cam to "AirLink" for work. But a position change works not at this settings Frown
A full Support for the 7Links RoboCamII were really great for me Smile
