Ratings and Reviews
Problem with captured files
Generally, this has been a good tool for quickly accessing my security spy server both remotely and from the sofa.
My biggest issue has been playing back and viewing captures files. I continuously capture all my cameras 24-7 with a new file starting every hour on the hour. However, when I go to review captured files from the app, I can only view the first 4m 45 seconds of the video. That’s not helpful if I’m looking for an event that occurred later in the hour. Sometimes I’ll receive an alert that motion was detected, but I’ll need to wait until I can access the server directly to be able to see the recordings. This is really frustrating and stressful if I suspect something needs my attention immediately.
App is really maturing! When perusing video captures, I’d still like to see the last viewed video highlighted, so I can keep track of where I am in the list—maybe even provide a favorites toggle. It would also be great if captures could be saved to my photos. Lastly, a means for setting a maximum upload speed to the ftp server would be appreciated, as my broadband has slow upload and SecuritySpy often hogs it—VOIP service is interrupted during these times. Thanks, Ben!

Issues with latest update
Had been working flawlessly prior to the latest update on my iPhone. Now when you rotate screen to horizontal position when viewing camera it does not work, search for audio and video files retrieves no files from server when they exist, and date picker is scrambled when viewing.
