Great App, high quality streaming
This is a great app for those people who want to be in Times Square but can't. I have calculated that there is only about a 30-45 second delay between the camera and real time. Three of the six cams are streaming while the others are refreshing. Ones that are streaming though are high quality and they barely skip. Overall, a cool app.

Awesome App
I’ve been using this app for years and my wife and I love it. We are both from east coast but I was in the military stationed in California so this app gave us a chance to see normal people in NY. We both are from NJ and this gives us a chance to see some of the places we once visited when we’re back east. I love the fact we can just log in day or night and listen and watch people. I wish you guys would have some additional live cams in Jersey on the boardwalk in Point Pleasant NJ at Jenksinson’s Pavilion or Seaside Park boardwalk cameras already exist there all you would need to do is link up w/their servers and of course their permission. Thank you for keeping this alive and operational thru out the years! Don

Every day
I have been using this as long as I can remember….every day often. Having been there several times I can see the changes over the years. People wonder about at odd hours, I assume they are workers going and coming from hotels or restaurants. what happened to Jamaica and Ricks cafe?

Weak start
Weak start on porting an old favorite over to the iPhone. While the program does offer landscape mode, several of the cameras have quite a bit of compression (hard-to-see video). I was also disappointed to find that, even though 8 cameras are available to view, one cannot choose which feed to display...and they flip automatically from camera to camera, so by the time your eyes adjust and you find something interesting to view, it suddenly flips to the next cam. Finally, video is streaming...but VERY slowly - even over WiFi, so it's the source feed not my phone. Less than a frame of video every few seconds, so combining this problem with everything mentioned above, I currently value this app at less than $0.99. I hope the developer will use my financial contribution to make some major improvements - and soon. UPDATE: Lowered my star rating as cameras have been blurry lately, and still no software fix to cure the myriad of problems described above. VERY frustrating to even try to watch...

Live Action!
After watching the Mardi Gras cameras for a couple weeks I was thrilled to see another offering from Earthcam! I have enjoyed their cams on my laptop and now I can see them almost as well right on my iPhone. Hopefully there interest in developing iPhone programs will give us other opportunities to watch the world from our little corner of it. I hope they develop a program for Key West soon, another exciting place to keep our eyes on. I believe this is a sign of good things to come for those of us who enjoy streaming video from exciting places. Well worth my two bucks!

Getting a sneak preview before i head out to NY this weekend! Awesome!...and you get current weather conditions as well! Only things i would suggest would be zoom ability, smoother transitions and movent and maybe even audio that would be crazy! Id pay more for all that! But seriously if your thinking about it just get it...way cool!

True sweetness! Love it, looks better on my pod than on my pc! Going to NYC in 2 days, will take a pix of our group using this!!! Then I will update this comment. Ok it worked great in front of Fridays for group photos, but the connection was bad at time square and it just wouldn't work there. Still a good app and still love it! Like a mini vacation in my pocket!

Nice But Viewing This on a PC is Much Better
This is a pretty cool app. Viewing Times Square is nice. My one complaint is that the live cams are slow on the app. Still, it's a good app from the little amount I have used it so far.

False advertising
Only three...occasionally four of the cameras are live streaming and they hardly ever load!! The others are still images that all show dead of night, even while the video cams show broad daylight! Reported numerous times but the bottom line is that they DON'T CARE! These are all available FREE on desktops. This is just rip off way to extort money from mobile users! Even if you go to the website through mobile browser, you are blocked from watching cameras. You are forced to buy the app!

Great views of Times Square
Wonderful quality, many camera options. It will be perfect when they add sound reception on its cameras. Its a well worth app purchase. 6 months since I bought it, I am always checking it out. I LOVE IT!

Excellent app..... Well worth 1.99. Very happy with the results, runs smoothly, fun to watch people live. While my mom was in the city I told her to go to a cam and I saw her while we were on the phone, if you live NYC you need this app.

Lots of fun
Especially interesting to see today because of Hurricane Sandy going through area. Webcam shows very few people, little traffic, lots of rain. All cams do not work just 1-2.

Every camera is great except the crossroad camera should always be focused on the coca-cola ad and the new years ball camera doesn't work buts it's worth what your paying for

I'm a GM in Times Square and love that I can keep an eye on things even when I'm not there. It would be great to pay a little more to have control of a camera for a couple of mins (zoom in and out) Thanks!

I've had this app for 6 months. 99% of the time it is just showing still shots. Even when there is video, it is choppy. You might be lucky enough to see a person take two steps as they walk by. Same with passing cars. All it's good for is to check how busy the city is.

Very Disappointed
I have a great iPhone with plenty of gigs so was excited at the possibility of enjoying the live streaming Times Square Cams. Unfortunately now that I've paid and installed only one cam of the many selections mentioned is actually live! All the others stay freeze framed. For $2 I was hoping for more. I'm very disappointed - feel ripped off.

I Agree, Does Not Work!
Yes I have an IPod Touch 3G with a 32gig. And just like the Aug 26th review by another purchaser, does not work. I am better off using my PC for this program & it's free. Your company should credit any purchaser that has similar problems. Then you can sleep soundly at night knowing you have done the honest thing. Think about your customers, not you wallet.

In need of an update.
It is EXTREMELY laggy and unresponsive. Don't waste your money or your time on this app unless they update it to a reasonable speed of "streaming". They shouldn't even call it "live", because they are just still pictures.
