Using a special archive of webcam addresses from North-West Italy, the app allows you to view the images captured by them very quickly and effectively, adding to the image itself some info about the date on which these images were taken. . It also displays web pages (always webcam representatives) where videos may be present.
The archive is kept up to date by the website of L'Alpinista Virtuale.
from version 2.2.0 onwards an alternative archive of webcams chosen and selected by the user is also managed.
However, the latest version of the app only works correctly with Android 6 and above.
It also allows you to view a map of the place where both the single webcam and all connected webcams are located. Furthermore, the graphs of the snow gauges and weather stations (with their respective snow gauges, thermometers, anemometers, rain gauges, etc.) next to the webcam are displayed, as well as the current weather conditions and related short-term forecasts; this by taking advantage of numerous weather forecast sites.
Webcams and weather stations can be reordered both by name and by distance from where you are.
Other sections of the app take into consideration material useful for the practice of ski mountaineering (tables, links to sites, various documentation, etc.).
The app can be used by all those who practice outdoor sports, not just ski touring.
