What's New in Version 2.02
- Bug fixes and improvements
- UI improvement for alerts on video screen
- Add forgot your password
On the whole, this app does what it promises.
I would say though that the annoying random panning when zooming in or out on live video has been deemed to be acceptable by the developers. It's totally unusable for focusing on one area as it is.
I have twins and so normally the camera is zoomed out looking at both cots. If I zoom in to one of them, the app allows the zoom, then pans across to a totally different field of view, usually a far corner. The annoying thing is that unless you zoom all the way out, it keeps moving the field of view every time you try to pan back.
App largely abandoned now; the last update was nearly 5 months ago (October). The problem remains.
Problem still remains in September 2014.
Also, the app doesn't follow the correct audio path of you have earphones plugged in.
Instead, it insists on using the loudspeaker to play audio when you connect until you unplug and replug the earphones in.
In my opinion, Withings has abandoned this app.
I love this monitor. It puts my mind at rest, while watching my baby I can play lullabies to him, talk to him & even turn on the nightlight. It's a very comforting app, the only downside is it freezes a lot. A faster stream or a more efficient stream would be better.
Could be fantastic
Whilst the monitor itself is great bit of kit, the app lets this product down. It's very clunky and not very intuitive. Pinch to zoom doesn't appear to work very well either, on the iPad or iPhone. With an app enhancement this could be so much better.
