SUPPORT: We ALWAYS reply to support requests. If you've logged a support ticket and you have not received a reply within 24hrs MAX then please check your junkmail or spam filters.
TIP FOR BETTER NOTIFICATIONS: In the main iPhone settings go to Notifications. From the list select CamerAlert & then choose the 'Alert' notification type. This will keep a blue pop up on screen until you have passed the camera. The default is the 'Banner' type which vanishes after 2 seconds.
MIRRORED DISPLAY: If your display is mirrored, then you have the "Mirror Display" option enabled in settings. This is explained in the user-guide - please take a moment to read it before posting a negative review
CamerAlert has two distinct modes: Map and List. In Map mode you are shown a map with the cameras located on it. In List mode you are shown a list of all the cameras in your vicinity. You can see the camera type, distance & direction. CamerAlert supports multitasking so you can run it in combination with your preference of Navigation App.
COMPATIBILITY: CamerAlert requires iOS 9.0 minimum and supports iPhone 3G, 4 & 4S and all iPad 3G models. It will not function on non-3G iPad or iPod Touch unless you use an Apple approved GPS receiver accessory. Map mode requires a data connection. iPod Touch users or those wishing to avoid mobile internet use (or whilst roaming) can run the app in list mode which uses no data.
IMPORTANT: CamerAlert, when first installed, has a demo Speed Camera Database. To ensure you have the latest camera data we include a free trial subscription, after which you will need to subscribe for updates. You do not need to register for the free trial.
In-App subscriptions will be charged to your iTunes account after you confirm the purchase, they do not auto-renew at the end of the purchased period. In-App subscriptions require registration to allow you to restore and use your subscription on all of your devices.

Another feature, unique to this app, is that the latest data can be downloaded over the air at any time (mobile internet or WiFi required) to ensure you have the most up-to-date speed camera information available at all times.
If you see a camera that is not in the database then you can report it using CamerAlert. This feature can also be used to change information about a camera already in the database i.e. changing speed or direction information.

Ratings and Reviews
Regular database updates. Help from developers available within minutes or hours not days or months. Overall a great app.
There is no other as good at this for keeping drivers safe in UK and Europe (and Rest Of World) *imo
There's a lot of criticism here that could be solved by RTFM or ask the support forum. Honestly. Theye're just ace at support. Try them out. heck you've got audio alerts active and volume up. I use the app everyday and it's just ace. Email the support peeps - they'll help you deffo :-)
I'd love the app to start up automatically as soon as my trip starts, on iOS. Anyway to do that please?
Yes! Updated for ios 11!
Always been a great app, won't drive without it,
and now its been upgraded for ios 11 it will continue to work and the display looks miles better than before.
Always gives camera alerts when they are upcoming on the road ahead.
Sometimes a few false alerts if the camera is on an adjacent road but never had a camera it didn't know about, including road works average speed checks.
You have to pay a subscription to keep the camera database updated but its well worth it!
Still the best
This App works - reliable, accurate, up to date. It is still the envy of all the other camera sources, which simply cannot match it on any base. If you've tried the rest, now try the best!
I cannot understand the negative reviews on here. "Can't download/update" - what's wrong with your finger? Use it to tap the blue words "Download Database" and you are updated in seconds!
Not optimised for iOS 9? I'm running it on an iPhone 6S Plus and it looks much better than before to me.
"Support "? You get membership of the website which is constantly monitored and problems answered.
The reason for negativity is obviously people who don't take the time to learn how it works or have difficulty with telling the forum clearly what's their problem - the sort of people who dumbly say "it's not working " and can't even explain what's not working.
