    Works well. I can connect to my time lapse camera over wifi no problem.

    Suits my needs. Small issue, however. If sdcard/DCIM/Camera doesn't already exist (as was the case on my Nexus 7 2012) images won't actually be saved to the Gallery. Perhaps have the app create its own separate directory in /sdcard? Thanks!

    Great app. Makes using your phone to see your RPi camera super easy. I set up port forwarding so can watch my cat from anywhere in the world if I need to. However, the 30fps mode isn't working with my USB cam.

    What player can I use to view the H264 stream? Everything I have tried fails playing the stream, saying it cannot be played.
