    Customer support is terrible in problem solving issues. Shopping now for a camera system.
  • Recording works half the time

    I experimented with the motion detection, but it wasn't sensitive enough for my needs. It could be because the location was a little too dark. I used the continuous recording option, but would check to see that it missed 3-4 hours and sometimes 10 minute gaps in between recordings. Super inconsistent and very annoying. Also when I go to "contact us" it says I don't have "email installed on this device". Strike three. Deleting this.
  • Can you please fix the audio issue with Bluetooth?

    Love the app but when using Bluetooth headphones the audio gets transferred away from my headphones to the phone speaker and plays over podcasts or music.

  • Alerts stopped in iOS 11

    Since the iOS 11 update, I haven’t received Manything alerts on my phone or iPad. Fortunately, I can still open the app and see if there have been any events recorded. Seems to be working OK, just haven’t been getting any alerts. I have been using Manything for over a year. Customer service is very attentive. I started using the app after getting threats on my life. This app made it possible for me to sleep at night. Although the app is less expensive then a home security system, it is a lot more expensive than most other app camera security systems. While I find it more reliable than most, I wish the prices were more competitive.
  • Better than Amcrest

    This app have so much better interface than the competition Amcrest, easy to use! On the hardware side it is also better, my personal experience a 40$ iphone 4s already makes better quality video than a more expensive Amcrest camera. If i use newer IPhone the difference is even greater! I'm thinking to change my store cameras for iphones!
  • Please put zoom in-out

  • Works well with older phones

    I use this app with a couple of 4s’s on iOS 9. The phones have been running 24/7 for over 1 year now without issues. I like that you can view live stream from the app and the web. Overall, a great idea to be able to repurpose older phones. Hopefully in future releases, the developers can provide 720p or even 1080p options.
  • Bad to worse

    UPDATE: on iOS 11.0 App has deteriorated even further with release of iOS 11.0. Clips often turn to black now in addition to even worse levels of jerkiness as described below. App is virtually unusable now. What an utter waste of time. Reducing to 1 star and cancelled subscription. _____ ORIGINAL: on 10.3.3 Latest version of the app is EXTREMELY jerky when scrubbing through clips. This occurs on both iPhone 7 and iPad Air 2, both on 10.3.3, even after deleting and reinstalling the app. Prior to this update, when scrubbing through a clip the app was always silky smooth. But now scrubbing through a clip constantly results in random jerkiness and hang-ups, inevitably causing inadvertent skips to the next or previous clip as the app hangs and your gesture turns into a swipe. Once or twice of this nonsense is ok, but when you're reviewing hundreds of clips and this is repeated hundreds of times, it quickly becomes a frustrating and colossal waste of time. Another needed change is clear functional distinctions in the ui between scrubbing and swiping. Far too often (especially in this latest version as described) it is way too easy to turn a scrub into a swipe. This is poor design resulting in unacceptable performance. I will not renew my subscription and start looking for alternatives if the jerkiness is not fixed. If fixed, I'll stick around as well as change my rating.
