  • Love it Jan 11, 2019

    I love this app because my one year old loves watching the penguins so much. Every time we turn it on he gets so excited he claps. It’s better than him watching cartoons, and it’s like we go to the zoo every day. Also love that we can hear when they have the Q and A with the people twice a day, we learn something every time. The only time we don’t like the app is when it’s not streaming.

    This honestly really cute! I love it. You can watch the penguins swim,eat or just lay around. I love this app soo much it doesn't attack you with ads or ask you to review or what not. You simply just. Pick 1 of 3 cameras to watch from and then watch. Yiu can also donate to.o I ADVISE THAT YOU TURN ON YOUR WI-FI SO ITS NOT CONTINUOUSLY LOADING🐧💚

    What a great idea. I love this app. I do wish I could see a bit more of the water so we could catch a glimpse of some swimming penguins. Edit: I just realize you can tap the screen for underwater view. I wish I could give 6 stars.

    Great job. Love the Apple TV app too. Small suggestion would be push notifications when the feedings are about to begin. If it’s the same time everyday, they could just be local timed reminder notifications. Cheers! 🐧❤️

    Personally, I believe that it is actually quite cool as it has 3 optional views and fully works. The sound doesn't work and I had difficulties finding out the species, but I would say that this is a functional app and I recommend it if your interested in watching Penguins.

    Great camera but poor environment. It looks really enclosed... Where is the enrichment? They just waddle back and forth all day waiting for fish. I feel like they could be much happier in a larger, more equipped area.

    keeps saying "network error", only asks if you want to watch prerecorded stuff, can't watch anything live. disappointed.
  • Cut out camera Aug 2, 2017

    By Fyrjdffjfjffjfjsmsk
    Rlly nice app and so cool to watch the penguins!!!...but😫 the camera cuts out randomly, so some days you can't even see ANYTHING I was gonna donate and feed the penguins, but if the camera constantly cuts out then why should I believe this is a legit organization. The penguins are worth it, but this so called "California institute of sciences" might not be...😡😤 JUST LET US SEE THE PENGUINS LIKE THE APP IS MEANT!

    I love the 3 cameras because I can see them in so many ways! Because of the lockdown, it’s like a zoo at home. It’s much better than other webcam websites, so I recommend it! 👍🏻

    1) It’d be really nice if you could zoom in to get a better view of the penguins. 2) Could you make the underwater cam have color? 3) I can’t find the section where you can ask the scientists about the penguins... 4) I wish there was a section that had a description (name, age, color band, personality, etc.) for each penguin. 5) Maybe you could have some sort of schedule for the penguins in the app, or notifications? I’d really like to see feeding time vs when the CAS first opens in the morning. 6) It’d be cool if you did a livestream with one of the penguins to answer questions or show some tricks or something.

    I installed the app one month ago, and it's not working since then. It gives network error and asked to see a pre-recorded video. I really love penguins, and I would enjoy seeing them. Please fix the network or drop the app. 😞😞🐧🐧🐧😞🐧

    So far when I open this app all I get is "no network connection" I love penguins so this is extremely disappointing! I will keep trying but right now I am pretty sad. Update: it's been a few days and there is no chance! :(

    Looks ok, camera views could be better, especially the underwater one.
