Web-accessible cameras don't need much in terms of bells and whistles, but that doesn't mean you can't have them all the same. That seems to be the development direction behind TinyCam, one of the most popular IP camera viewers on the Play Store. The latest update adds some API strings that make it more compatible with the experimental multi-window mode everyone's raving about in Android N. That should be extremely handy for watching your front door and browsing Android Police at the same time.

But wait, there's more! In addition to support for multi-window mode, the changelog includes a handful of brand-spanking new features, notably a low-power mode, an option to permanently keep the screen on for easy hands-free monitoring, Google Maps-style one-finger zooming for video streams, and skip detection for cameras that support pan-tilt-zoom. For users of the $4 pro upgrade, the app now supports digital zooming and tracking in the live view and a new motion detection algorithm.

On top of all that, 6.6 includes bug fixes for the D-Link 403, a more stable hardware video decoder, and a brand new hacks section in the Developer Settings menu. Speaking of developers, the changelog posted to the Play Store is a fantastic example of how to do it right, complete with links to social posts explaining the new features in older betas. Devs, take note.
