"…a simple but brilliantly effective app…" - The Sunday Times' World's 500 Best App List

"Cool app; use it most days to check route for jams" - Frank Cooke App Store reviewer

Featured in the Sunday Times magazine article "If you're in a Jam…"

Cameras can easily be selected via a Map interface, or a sortable list (sorted by nearest to current location or by ascending/descending) and can be added to your "Favourites" list for quick access later.

Unlike similar apps, London JamCams allows you to define and save "Routes of cameras". Just define your route, add your jam cameras and immediately see the congestion along the whole route before you set off.

Features include:

✔ Access to over 700 traffic cameras spread across Greater London area

✔ Map view with selectable cameras

✔ Sortable list of cameras - sort Ascending/Descending and by nearest to current location

✔ Searchable timeline of Transport for London's official Traffic News Twitter feed.

✔ Ability to define "ROUTES" of cameras. A route can be given a name and any number of cameras can be assigned to a route quickly by selecting through the standard list, favourites or via the map. Cameras can be placed in any order. Once defined the cameras of a route can be viewed, either manually of via a slideshow

✔ Search for cameras by name (i.e. camera/road name) or by geographical area of cameras (i.e. North or South) to quickly locate a camera

✔ Whilst viewing a camera image, the user has the ability to navigate back and forth to next and previous cameras in the list

✔ Ability to "play" a slideshow of selected cameras

✔ Zoomable Camera Images (pinch or double touch)

✔ Quickly add/remove cameras to and from your favourites list or an to an existing route by touching and holding a camera in the camera in the list
