I won one of these cameras in a raffle and was pretty excited. After reading several bad reviews, however, I grew skeptical. I figured what the heck, I'd give it a fair shot and see if I had better luck than others.. And I guess I did! The app has given me very little trouble.. Way less grief than most apps I run on my iphone 4.Camera footage shows up just fine-a little jumpy- but I rather expect that. Sound works but is choppy and I haven't been able to use the talk/ listen feature with much success due to lag.
Overall though, I've enjoyed the peace of mind of being able to spy on my living room whenever I feel like it. It's been a nifty gadget and I may even buy another at some point. I would, however like to find something that records and plays back easily.. I haven't found any indication that this one does..?
So many analogies for how stupid this app is
I guess I could download this app if I don't really wanna be able to use my cameras. Because it's very unlikely that I can actually log on to the dumbest app in all of the App Store. And if I do log on, the chances of me being able to click on my cameras is impossible.. And if by some minuscule chance I am able to click on my camera, this fancy app kills itself. So all in all I'm extremely proud of this app, and the developer as well. It takes special talent to constantly be rated 1 out of 5 stars yet refuse to do anything about it. Glad I bought an item that serves me no purpose, it's almost as if Belkin and I had a white elephant party...
Belkin was running late, he didn't have time to grab me something meaningful or even semi useful. He literally just closed his eyes and grabbed the first thing he touched. But I guess that's why they call it a white elephant party after all. My loss this time, but I can't wait till the next one Belkin. You slimy son of a gun.
I've been thinking about getting a webcam for a while, had researched Dropcams but today saw this in the store and bought it on impulse without researching. It's being returned tomorrow. The camera itself is fairly good....when setting up it showed color but in operation it's black and white. The night vision quality is good. BUT...the audio does notwork, the app on iphone 4S continually crashes giving a warning that I'm no longer connected online, it takes a long time to get the video back, but the worst is that the picture freezes so I'm looking at a still picture of an event that occurred hours ago. The app doesn't work any better on ipad3. So between the crashes and frozen stills, it's fairly useless. Since my review doesn't differ from those that have written before me, and since nothing has changed since the earliest review, I'm assuming Belkin has a yearning for respite from being in business so I'm sure they won't care that I'm returning their product.
