It's okay. Motion detection doesn't work at all. Other functions work. Adds on the free version are constant and obnoxious. I would pay for the full version if the motion detection worked. It was the feature that interested me the most.

Android 7 ? try setting:camera:camera2API:disabled -> maybe it will help. I am very sorry - but I have a easy solution for you - buy the premium version and never be annoyed by ads. revenue from ads is what helps me continue developing this app even when the majority of users do not pay for it.

When I first downloaded it onto my Samsung A52, it work great. It was exactly what I was looking for - the ability to record videos in the background without anyone knowing, and on top of that there were some really neat features. There are other apps out there that do something sort of similar, but they don't have the ability to zoom. BVR has tons of settings and features that I think make it stand above just about anybody else's app… when it works . Unfortunately, for some odd reason the recordings now stop after 1 second, then restart, then stop again after 1 second, then restart. I thought maybe it was my phone, so I actually bought the upgraded Samsung S22 Ultra. Today the start and stop recording happened over 300 times in 1 hour, and only 5 or so of the 300+ recordings had more than 15 seconds of video. There are other quirks that are starting to happen as well. I've tried every possible setting I could find that would make a difference, not to mention I've reinstalled the app multiple times, and I even communicated directly with the developer. He was also at a loss for the cause and had no solutions that worked.. If this app worked properly, I would give it 10 stars because of the strong feature set. But unfortunately, I have to discontinue using it because it is not reliable. I never know if I'm going to record the video I need successfully or not. Sometimes it works flawlessly, other times it is completely messed up. I give it 5 stars for features and functionality, but only 1 star for reliability. If the developer can fix the bugs in the app, I will gladly adjust my rating.

This is a very good app. The only problem is this: Every time the recording stops and ends, it emits a loud alert sound. I've have turned every sound tab to no sound, or off, which is found in the app settings. I then turned all sound settings to off on my cell phone settings. I still get this stupid alert sound. It's annoying as hell, and actually infuriating. There is no way to be stealth, which is what I thought was one of the purposes of the app. Does anyone know how to fix this?
