Great app for setting up webcam widgets

This app makes it easy to put a webcam image in a widget, provided you have a direct image link to the latest image. It pretty great to have a "window to another place" just sitting on your homescreen.

Minor note, I love that we can show the latest update time in the Cam's time zone, but sometimes it says "yesterday PDT". :)

One more thing, when I add a widget for the latest added cam, it seems like the source in the widget setting is "default", meaning if you add another cam inside the app, the prior widget now changes. Suggestion: make sure widgets refer to a specific cam, probably referenced by some internal number such that renames don't make them disappear/change.

Minor: I don't love it that tapping a widget sends you straight into edit mode, no other app behaves like that. Personally I'd prefer to either get to the cam list, or better, to a full-size view of the latest image from the tapped widget cam. I often tap when I see an especially nice sunset that I want to see in full view.

I’d still like an option to send suggestions and app logs from within the app, as opposed to support via Twitter. That said, the dev is super responsive to user reviews, so I guess that works. 👍🏻

Developer Response ,

Updated Response:
2020.3 has fix for http:// urls (they display in the app, but not the Widget!)
Thanks for finding this!

Updated Response:
2020.2 has TimeZone display, 15min minimum update time, and tap on Widget will bring you into the app Camera Edit page.

AND Yes http only links work in the app, but not in the Widget. I will need to investigate if there is any thing I can do about that....

Original Responce:
iOS, as you expected, does not like to update Widgets too often. In next release I am gonna make 15min the lowest you can select.

Showing the time in the TimeZone of the camera location is a great idea! I will look into it.

The refresh time in the Widget settings is designed to override the setting in the app, but agreed it is a tad confusing. Might take that out too.

No way to scale to fit all of the image?

There seems to be no option available to scale the image to fit and some portion is not visible no matter what image sizes I use.
