Closed functionality - designed around needs of a mobile app


A lot of the features to this application seem closed off.

For example If I open up a stream to view a video feed, I’d like it to stay open, instead I’m fighting with the timeout all day long.

Much of the design seems to be focused on providing you quick access to the featues, which is excellent… good job… but What I NEED is to see the video. I can’t resize the window to say… just see the video, (on a desktop computer) make it stay on top of other applications, and I can’t make it full screen without having to view the onscreen controls. It’s definitely a work in progress towards a good solution, but since I can’t access the video stream any other way than through this application, I’m going to have to ask for more, before I rate it higher.

Yi Does It Again


They developed the most cost efficient and dependable security cameras in the industry and now you can view your camera's on your desktop computer. I’m using an Apple desktop (27 in screen) and I’m viewing four of my cameras in almost the display size as my I pad. What’s more exciting if you have more than 4 cameras you can set up another 4 pack to be used on another screen. Not much instructions with the app but it is real easy to set up. The program works in the USA with USA cameras. Great Job Yi.

How to connect!?


If I have to ask this question as a user that means this app is not ready to be released. “You don’t have any connected cameras?” - YES I DO and it’s working on my phone app, and all is allready connected with your website!!! - "Connect the camera" - I can’t because is not expained how. Should be connected automaticaly when I log in with my credentials, right? There is some buttons, but when you gues which button is for help, you will end up in a web bucket with everything. I don’t know why you releasing software which is not nearly done. My overal fealing about this app is fishing for cloud subscribers!!! I hope it will turn that I have wrong.
