Jamie has made several changes to the KAICam Android application, in support of the cruise with MBARI this week. To make the screen space on larger tablets more usable, the layout is now dynamically adjusted to maximize the preview image size.
To help in situations in which the network topology changes frequently, the app now automatically find other instances of itself that inhabit the same network. This way, the remote viewing client can connect to a camera server without being specially configured with the camera’s IP address in advance.
Other improvements include better networking efficiency and stability, and the continuous logging of GPS and air pressure (for altitude) where available.
The two images are screenshots of the app running on two devices: a Nexus S cell phone with a 4″ screen, and a Galaxy Tab tablet with a 10.1″ display.Return to News
