    I was on the app store today, looking at some top apps and came across the above.

    At first, I was like wtf, that can't be true. Read some reviews and it actually seemed legit. But I still didn't really believe it, so I downloaded it and now I'm a bit freaked out.

    Basically, this app seems to allow the user to access certain webcams and cameras all over the world. We're captured on CCTV a lot when in public, but does anyone else think that this is a huge invasion of privacy and just really wrong? If I'm walking down the street, I don't want any old person on their iPhone to be able to watch me?

    Opinions?

    Nothing. I didn't say I was going to do anything.

    But you're okay being watched by any old person on the other side of the street...?

    There are websites where you can do that anyway, this app is really just a mobile version of the website.

    http://www.earthcam.com/

    It's not like there are cameras everywhere that can be controlled, outside your house for instance, only certain ones in certain public locations.
