Welcome on the Ski Resorts Webcams web page,
Ski Resorts Webcams, available on the Nokia Store, is an application released for Symbian^3 and Meego Harmattan devices, it allows you to quickly access to your favourite webcam. Perfect if you want to check the weather of your favourite resort!
Features inside the 4.0.4 version:
Save as many resorts as you want
Pinch to Zoom on webcam images and double click for 3x zoom
Access to your favourites resorts in a click
Listen to music from a streaming radio (Hot Radio Grenoble) (N9 feature)
Share webcam images (N9 feature)
Here is a video showing the app running on N9 (don’t pay attention to my awful english accent). On the Symbian Devices, the app is the same except for the sharing feature and music listening features:
Two versions of this app exist: a demo version and a full version, the only difference is that in the demo version you will not be able to save skiing resorts in favourites.
Please remember that the skiing resorts list is continuously updated, you do not need to get a update from the store to receive an updated data file. The data file release date can be found in the “About” screen.
This application can only be used in “online” mode, it uses a remote file that contains all the webcams links. Before turning on the application, remember to turn on the data connectivity.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to add some specific skiing station webcam. My email can be found in the “Settings” part of the app.
The app has been tested without any problems on Symbian Belle(N8) and Symbian Anna(E7)

A short review made by allaboutsymbian website is available here.
Why the loader icon is not showing when reloading an image ? - This is a normal behaviour, the application puts the image into a buffer for some time, when you repress on the image, the buffer is reloaded. After a while, the cache will be cleared and the loader icon will show up.
What if you tried to launch the application several times and you couldn’t access to the webcams ? - Contact me, it is possible that my provider blocks your access to the file.
What if a webcam isn’t updated ? - Contact me, I cannot watch over all the webcams so your help is welcome.
You would like to install the full version ? - Delete the demo version first and buy the full one from the store. When buying the full version, you also get a priority support (if you wish me to add new webcams for ie.)
