Winston-Salem, NC – TrueLook, a leading provider of interactive webcam systems, announces a new mobile application that enables clients to interact with their webcams directly from any smartphone or tablet. The mobile app boasts nearly all of the interactive features from the full TrueLook web interface, making TrueLook webcams more accessible and mobile than ever. The app is currently free for both iOS and Android devices, via the iTunes App Store and Google Play respectively.
TrueLook has a large client base in the construction industry. Project managers often use TrueLook’s services to monitor and time-lapse jobsites. The new TrueLook app grants construction professionals even more accessibility to their ongoing projects. Whether on-the-go or in an important meeting, managers can instantly present live jobsite images and archives from their phone or tablet.
Outside of the construction industry, TrueLook is often used as a social marketing tool. Webcams are used at resorts, museums, sporting events, trade shows, and other locations to engage web visitors with a live interactive experience. The TrueLook mobile app presents a new channel for these locations to reach their audience. A beach resort, for example, could now share their live oceanfront view direct to customers’ mobile devices.
The TrueLook app requires that users log in, to ensure privacy for each client. However, there are demo cameras available for anyone to experiment with. Once logged in, users can view live images (or video, when applicable) from their webcams. Webcam images can be shared via email or Facebook directly from the application. Images can also be saved to the user’s mobile device or into an online photo album. Users can also zoom and aim their cameras with the mobile app, or instantly zoom to preset hotspots.
Because many TrueLook customers are in the construction industry, a number of image archiving features have been included in the mobile app. Most notably, all time-lapse photography archives are available for viewing as videos. Users can even pull up a calendar to view time-lapse videos at certain dates.
With the release of the app comes a new feature, never before available to TrueLook customers. Users can take pictures with their mobile device and upload these images directly to their webcam’s photo album. This gives construction project managers an easy and immediate way to create online archives from pictures taken on-site. Resorts, sporting events, or other marketing customers could also use this feature creatively by allowing customer photos to be uploaded.
