I have been using, or rather, trying to use the BI android app for several years. It has always been oddly unintuitive and difficult to navigate and recently it seems to have gotten worse. While reading others reviews I was reminded that it cost me $10! At that price the developers should be able to attract and hire competent android programming talent. My wife uses an iPhone and her experience the BI app has been much better so I have a notion of what should be possible.

I love this app except. . . after the last update it literally takes thirty seconds to load the cameras after you log into the app. This is new behavior in this version. Using UI3 is not a good option on a mobile device, I rely on this app for viewing my cameras, but when it takes more than 45 seconds from launching the app to viewing a camera, it's very frustrating for me.

Previous app had issues but was worlds better. Deleting and resetting alerts is a hit or a miss. Larger fonts and icons forces me to scroll to pause cameras. Decreased the size of the clip window is not good. I pay only to help the developer, but since then version 5 took forever to install properly. I am bummed. Update: Dark mode much better, reset alerts now working. Thanks for the updates.
