Nags once a week, BUT updated all day, every day, if it auto-updates (or checks) it'll be doing it every time I switch on throughout the day.

If/when we add the auto-update stuff it will more than likely only download the changes (a few hundred bytes) and not the full database (i think about 800kb at moment) so data usage will be minimal.

Any camera that has a record in the changelog since the last download. Didn't think you'd want to be bored with the technical details...

Excellent - that beats RTFM. You must be in McD's if you're that quick on the responses.

the app downloads the camera id that has it's status as removed and the app then removes that from the local database...

C'mon! I thought we had agreed I didn't want to be bored by the details. Actually, I'm not bored by them, they simply pass me by. Could you send me a haircut, I need one?
