  1. Gotocamera has a user friendly and FREE surveillance/video monitoring app for BlackBerry. One can use the service to watch over pets, children, elders, etc., when you're compelled to leave them alone at home or with a nanny. This service can also be used to monitor small businesses. The process of getting started is very simple. All you need to do is set up a GotoCamera Account (also free) to use this app. Just follow the simple instructions on the sign-up page and you're good to get started. The idea behind this app is to assist to make communities safer, and give home owners peace of mind when they’re capable of remotely monitoring their home and loved ones. Considering the fact that they're being used by people in over 180 countries, looks like GotoCamera is definitely doing something right :)
