TileCam is the ultimate app to pin your favorite Webcams and IP cams to your Windows Phone Start screen. Whether your favorite city, the weather at your vacation resort, the webcam of the beach you surf at, or the highway, you drive home in the evening – keep an eye on all of this with TileCam. Unlimited number of Webcams and IP cameras can be pinned as Tiles to your Start screen, which are automatically updated.
Features: • Pin unlimited number of webcams as Live Tiles to your Start screen • Automatic update of the Tiles (every 30 minutes & more) • Current temperature of the webcams locations • Webcam as lock screen background • MJPEG video playback in the app • Find webcams nearby • Share to e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn • Authentication for non-public webcams • Wi-Fi only option • Sleep mode in order to minimize data traffic • Store up to 100 recent images per webcam • Full screen zoom mode • Save images to Photos Hub in order to share them easily • Estimation of the monthly data traffic
Requirements: • Webcam / IP Cam image formats: MJPG, JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP • Static image addresses
Tips: • The number of pinned webcams should not be too high since the background process has only a limited time for updating the images. For a successful update a fast mobile Internet connection is required. If it is not sufficient during the update, a new attempt is made 30 min later • Only pinned webcams are updated automatically • Webcam collection pages usually do not link directly to the webcams. Try to get the address directly from the operator page of the webcam to make sure that the image is always up to date • Add your own IP Cameras! Manufacturers provide information in the manuals about the URL to the JPG image and MJPEG video. Models of Axis, Foscam, D-Link, TriVision, TrendNet, Vivotek, Instar, Wansview, HooToo, Linksys and many more support this • You do not want to have a webcam on your Start screen? All other information provided as an image on the Internet can be included. Stock prices, weather maps, rain radar, traffic, security / surveillance camera and much more
The trial version is fully functional but the default webcams will be restored daily

I love this App! One of the best Live Tiles there is.
Nothing works well or is easy about this app. The concept is great, and I look forward to seeing it implemented. As of July 2013 this app isn't ready for release and public use.
Nice app! Thanks for WP7.8 / WP8 support with wide live tiles!
I really liked this app, but every week or so it just stops updating the tile, and resets to the default we cam. Gets pretty frustrating. I wish this could be fixed.
Very very ok! One request, refresh at more regular intervals.
The source code and a user's guide is available at your Tilecam GitHub page.. The add-on works by aligning your 3D camera so that your viewport is tileable.
