It should come as no surprise that developers are working hard to find new and innovative applications they can offer on the Apple (News - Alert) Watch. While the device is plenty new, there is plenty of demand and more and more application makers are beginning to understand they won’t survive if they don’t offer features that can be shown off on a user’s wrist. One application that is definitely starting to gain attention is the Drip for Dropcam. This nifty little app is designed to work with Dropcam cameras in order to deliver live images directly to your Apple Watch.
This application, which really does make you feel as though you are living in the future is actually not the first application that uses video and audio on the Apple Watch, but it is the first that will basically allow you to check the security of your home just by glancing down at your wrist. The Glide application started the ball rolling with its video messaging application on the Apple Watch but Drip seems somewhat more “Science Fiction come to life.”
Of course, there are still some limitations to what Drip can do, with the developers admitting that, “while it doesn’t show live video, it shows a new live image from a selected camera every 3 seconds.” BGR points out that this functionality is still pretty nice when you want to keep abreast of what’s going on in your home when you’re away.
Not only can users monitor pictures from their security cameras at home, but the application lets them control those cameras as well, as far as turning them on and off. The app developers have said that future updates will bring new features including motion events. There will also be the ability to display Dropcam cameras that users are subscribed to. The application can be had right now for $3.99 and the price will eventually go up.
