These days you can’t go anywhere without being spotted and followed by CCTV cameras. Big Brother is indeed watching you. This app puts you behind the lens of dozens of public web cameras, so you can wander the world through your iPhone’s screen and spy on other folk!
iSpy’s interface is crammed with pages of web-cam thumbnails, which you can flick through. Each thumbnail is labelled, so you know where the video feed is coming from. If you fancy a closer look at a location (like Times Square) then click on a thumbnail so that the footage fills the screen. Many cameras have a Control button for you to press. You can swipe left or right on the iPhone’s screen and the camera will pan! Pinch the screen to zoom the web-cam in or out.
You can also search for cameras by Categories like Beach (hard to resist that one!), and book mark your favourite cameras. A fun and functional app.
