    The cameras that do work are fun to watch and there are updates on events and statuses. However, over half the cameras do not work and haven't for many months. I would rather you take them off the list then taunt me with them.

    This app was awesome at first but now there are so many cameras that are not on. I loved watching the pandas and the orangutans. They were my favorite. :-)

    Great concept but none of the cameras work. Ill uninstall and try again.

    I love the animal cameras!!! it allowed me to watch the panda cub close up without being there!

    Love it. Great for mobility impaired or pre schoolers so they don't get all scared when they see a REAL tiger!

    As far as an unofficial app goes, this app offers a lot of useful info and a smooth experience. The map is just a link to NatZoo's PDF, though, not an interactive map. I suggest the dev change the map to a live Bing map - you can even overlay on Bing Maps. I supported the Zoo for many years but decided to boycott them for refusing to release a WinPhone app. Greedy incompetent impotent b@st@rds. I now use this app to watch the pandas every day, thanks.
