Updated to fix a bug which was causing the app to crash when the 'talk' feature was used on iOS 12 - thanks to the users who let us know about it :)
Ratings and Reviews
Initially good, then buggy (paid for version)
Got the free version just to keep an eye on the bad weather from work, but it was really good. Had it for a couple of weeks any everything was perfect. Loved being able to keep an eye on things from wherever I was so decided to pay for 2 days recording and pay for a second camera, but then the bugs came. Both cameras suddenly disconnect for no apparent reason. I’ve tried just leaving them but they do not reconnect unless I go to them and turn the WiFi off and on again. This is on two different types of devices and they do not go down at the same time. Then I end up losing the footage during the outage, some of it comes through but not all of it. This happens every two or three days. I don’t always get a notification either when they go down (sometimes I do). I only find it when I go onto the app. The motion sensitivity is also not accurate at random times something which triggered the camera at one time, won’t trigger it another time. I’ve missed some events which I really wanted to watch back. I don’t recommend this as a proper security solution as it needs to be consistent and stable.
The best app I’ve ever found
I’ve never been compelled to write a review for any app previously. But Manything is so utterly amazing that I am going to do so! The functionality of this unbelievably brilliant app, even on the basic free version, is just fantastic. Making use of an old iPhone that was just in a drawer doing nothing, we can now monitor our pets when we are out and about! We can even use the ‘talk’ function to chat to them when we are not there! The motion sensor which sends alerts is great and it gives such great piece of mind to be able to see the Pets happily plodding around the kitchen when we aren’t there. I am telling anyone who will listen about this app and when I show it to them they cannot believe how brilliant it is. I cannot thank the developers enough for this super clever app. Admittedly I’ve become less productive at work but hopefully that’s the novelty and I will soon stop watching the live feed constantly when I’m not home ;-)
An excellent app with incredible support (UPDATED)
Have used this app a fair bit recently and it does a great job, it has features that are lacking in many more expensive dedicated camera systems - noise detection and the ability to select areas for movement detection for example. I had a couple of problems with one of the “old” devices I was using as a camera after Apple released iOS 11.3 but the technical support has been excellent working to resolve the problem. I cannot recommend this app highly enough, if I could rate 10 stars I would.
Hi there - very sorry to hear you're having problems! We've tested all functionality with iOS 11.3 and not found any problems, it would be great if you could send us an email on email@example.com and let us know your username - then we can look into the issues for you!
