  • Camera doesn’t reactivate if WiFi temporarily interrupted

    By kapenske
    If WiFi goes out and comes back on the cameras need to be manually reactivated. Makes it rather useless if you’re away from home which is the whole purpose of the cameras. Appears to be a problem only with iPhones, according to their FAQs. Trying now to find another app where this problem doesn’t happen.
  • Awesome app so far!

    By chicaem29
    I’ve only been using the app for 5 days but so far it’s been great. I needed a way to keep an eye on my foster dogs while I’m out of the house and I needed an app that would work on the old iOS on my iPad 2. This app is perfect for my needs. Video is clear and it does a great job at picking up sound and motion events. No issues running it on an old slow device. I use the free version so I can’t watch all the past event recordings but that hasn’t been necessary for me. This app gives me a lot of peace of mind!
  • Manything rocks

    By Eric meltz
    This app is so good. 90% as good as a 6000$ commercial install, for free or 10$ if you need lots of cams. Highly flexible. We use it to monitor the boat, workshop, and home when we’re on vacation. Amazing product.
  • The BEST. I’ve tried all the others.

    By Jumper 1
    Update Feb 2019. This app just keeps getting better and better. I installed a Manything iPhone 4 cam on my old fishing boat. It runs on TMobile unlimited data. It looks at the bilge pump. I get a sound triggered alert when it turns on along with a video ciip showing the water level. Super reliable. Also installed a cam looking at a roof gutter so I can see when it needs cleaning or jams up with debris. I LOVE Manything. It works way better than other competing apps and I’ve tried most of them. Smart developers. They are always improving things. I have been a Manything user for several years now. I have watched the app evolve, getting better and better with each revision. The app team is SMART and also very responsive. If there is a problem they get right on it and fix it. It’s no easy chore keeping the app compatible with many different old iPhones. Lazy companies would obsolete old phones like iPhone 4 but Manything continues to support these old iPhones which makes setting up a camera network very inexpensive. Old iPhone 4s with clean ESNs go for $25 all the time on eBay. The features on the app are just incredible. You can use your touchscreen to mark certain zones in the field of view that won’t trigger motion alerts. You can get text and email alerts. Every feature works and works really well. I’ve tried other competing security camera apps and they just fall short. Manything now supports Hikvision cameras and I’ve installed several. They work flawlessly. I’m a huge Manything fan because they deliver and they care deeply about resolving problems as fast as possible. The result is a great product that just keeps getting better. It is just amazing to get motion triggered alerts and video clips sent to phone showing a package left on my porch while I was on a cruise in Alaska, also while walking on a beach in Bali. Truly amazing.
  • Puppy Training made SO much easier

    By jonty devil
    We’ve been using this app to help train our puppy when we leave the house. It’s so much more effective to be able to correct bad behavior when it happens instead of when we get home some 5 hours later. The ability with this app to talk to wherever your camera is set up is invaluable. When our puppy starts to tug at the roll of toilet paper, we see it and immediately tell her no. Our puppy stops and finds one of her toys to play with. Thanks to this app, our puppy is on her way to becoming a wonderful, well behaved dog. Thank you!
  • Power consumption

    By captinconrad
    It’s a good idea, I really think it is! But the app has several problems, the load time to see what the cam sees is sooooo long, if it loads at all! I don’t know what it takes so long, since it’s pulling so much power even my fast charger can’t keep up with it! Phone gets pretty hot for being so slow to load
  • Worked fine

    By Appmanification
    Just loaded it on an iPad Pro and iPhone 8 as viewers and on an iPhone 5 as a camera and everything went through without a hitch. I used the viewer on the same WiFi as the camera and then turned off the WiFi on the viewer to check it on cell connection and again all worked great. Now let’s see how long it can run without crashing!
  • Feature request

    By SuperShoeDiva
    I would like a feature that allows me to turn the app off and on at a scheduled time. I use the app to watch our front yard which is great until nightfall when it is too dark to see any cause of motion or when interior lights are on the app records the reflection.
  • Used to be great, now it's worthless

    By parad1se12
    I used to love this app! For a while now, the camera keeps going offline and automatically switches to viewer all by itself. It literally refuses to stay connected even though my wifi works great. I have to find a different company because this app is worthless to me now and is no longer dependable.
