I'm a fan
I am using a variety of old iPods and an iPhone 5 as the cameras and an iPhone 6 to view and I couldn't be happier. I've had it for a few weeks and it has performed above my expectations.
Good for android terrible for apple products.
By Dontwanak now
Do not subscribe to this unless you have an android. iPhones work terrible on these. I've tested Samsung S3, S5, Note 4 and they work great. 7plus and the Mini4 are horrible. Grainy and choppy videos. Awful!
Also drains the crap out of your batteries even on android even while plugged in! I'd like my money back.
I'll call this the battery killer!!!
Wouldn't it work better AND be cheaper just to buy a I.p. cam?
I highly recommend this app! Been using it for awhile now. Luv everything about it. I can't wait for their Hikvision integration!
Easy to use
Outstanding client service!
By Mac n' Jam
I recently wrote in a poor review following problems that developed after the recent app update. I am upgrading my review after receiving amazing contact and service from the Manything team. They have been communicating with me through the weekend to analyze and correct the problem. It's possible the jumping offline problem may be with my own router; a problem I would not have known without their analysis and support. Manything works VERY well as a security camera and two-way communication device. With one on one service like they have provided, I enthusiastically recommend Manything!
Needs to have lock screen
By Meh thing
How secure is it if anybody can just walk up and close the app. It doesn't run in the background.
Is free, free?
Depends on where you look, but the best way I have found to get the whole truth and nothing but the truth is by actually installing the app, then if you look hard enough, you might find this:
"What is the Free Trial?
All new users automatically get a free 5 day trial of our cloud recording plan. After your first 5 days you’ll move over to our basic free plan that has live streaming, but no longer stores past video. Video recorded during the trial plan will be deleted when you move to the free plan."
Translation: Either purchase our cloud based storage services or we'll trash your video records‼️👎🏿👎🏿
Great app to use with old IOS priductd
By JM in NB
Thisis a great app to use with old iPhones & iPads to setup remote viewing of your house while away. I currently have 3 old iPhones setup in my house. Picture quality is great and there are many options for saving videos. Customer service is top notch! Especially Joanna S who recently helped me with a problem I was having. My only complaint is I think their pricing options are a little expensive. Especially when many phone are used. However, its worth peace of mind of being able to check that the garage doors are shut and everything in the house is fine too!
Neat app that I've been playing around with. Very user friendly and gives various options for the best settings you want. I only have the free setting. Maybe I'll upgrade to a paid option but I'm being cheap. Lol Thanks for keeping this app updated!
Good use of old phones
I have been using this app for several months. The last updates seem to have brought stability. It works as an extra set of eyes to my regular cam security system. My iPhones do occasionally lose their Wi-Fi link, and you have to chase down and stop all sources of pop ups, or the camera will be forced offline. I would like it if the developers would somehow make the icon show smaller on my iwatch when an alert comes through.
Great way to use spare phones
I use this to watch our pets when we're out. Easy to setup and use- I don't use the backup features so haven't had to get the subscriptions. I do like that there's a motion sensor and that you can save clips. Nice as a basic security cam in lighted areas.
