New App "CamSam" Converts Smartphones Into Practical Speedcam Detectors

The Newly Developed App CamSam Provides Smartphone Users With Apple iOS and Google Android Operating Systems With a Timely Warning of All Stationary Speedcams All Over the World, as Well as of Mobile Speedcams All Over Europe, in Real Time

HAMBURG, GERMANY--(Marketwire - Apr 26, 2012) - The free app CamSam is now available in iTunes App Store and in the Android market. Users get timely information over the GPS about all registered speedcams on their section of the road. Besides radar trackers, they are also informed about red lights and section controls. The warnings are not only displayed on the screen, they are also accompanied by voice messages in any of the 6 available languages.

To keep this network of information up-to-date, it also works in the other direction. If a user wants to report a speedcam, they can use the reporting function on the smartphone to warn other fellow drivers. The current position of the speedcam is determined immediately and transmitted to the system, checked by the CamSam editor team and sent back to the community. To improve the quality of speedcam data for the users, the app also has a useful, integrated feature called "Confirm speedcam." That means, if the user passes by a registered speedcam location, the system asks them whether the speedcam is currently there. Anyone wishing to benefit from the other useful functions, such as the Landscape mode, can download the paid version "CamSam Plus."

Users will derive benefit from the world's largest database "" containing entries for more than 47,000 stationary speed and red light cams all over the world and the mobile real-time speedcam notifications of the steadily growing community of CamSam.

"CamSam far exceeds our expectations. So far, almost 3 million active users have installed the mobile speedcam warners on their smartphones. Our community is growing every day and improves with every new user," says CamSam founder Matthias Eifrig.
