Review from Mike Shaffer
Works! Works good over home net and not on mobile net, I just wish I could video record when I tap the red button to video record it tells me it can not record video at this time! So that means I have to have 2 different apps for one thing!
Do not upgrade! Earlier version had been working perfectly fine for the last two years. My new phone unfortunately had auto update turned on and it updated this app. This version is an ADVERTISEMENT and does not work anymore. The alternative this company suggests, "Foscam" app is a steaming pile of sh##. Had to side load old version to get my camera working. Foscam was fantastic. I won't touch it again. New app seems to want you to connect all cameras to Foscam and I am concerned they may now work for spy agency.
Last update ruined ability to work. No longer able to view anything with this app. Not from local wifi while in the home or while away. And I'am an advanced user. I dedicated a port to each camera - which worked great for 1 year. Switched to Owler app which now only works on and off since last Foscam app update f%#!d up the camera. POS! No, everything new is NOT fine!!
Cloud services ad ware This app used to work. Now it crashes on start and when it doesn't forces their new cloud services ad on you. The update had loblolly made a working app less functional. The recent update fixes the crash on start but still forces the ad for the cloud services app on you each time. There also send to be a bug with connecting over cell data. Other apps connect just fine so my port forwarding still works but the app only connects when using WiFi.
Horrible update When starting the app you get a screen that says "Everything new is fine." If you touch it to try and move past it the app crashes. I guess everything new is't fine. Then once you get to the screen where you can pick a camera to see, you click on one and an ad pops up. If you try and push the x to get rid of it and miss it by a little it opens an internet page. You can't simply push the back button and get the camera view. You have to restart the whole thing. Bad in an emergency checking on a baby.
Broken Don't work any more. I can't install the new app cause it's not compatible. What happened I used this to view my cameras for a long time. Now nothing other then login failed. Was looking at purchasing more foscam cameras. Not sure now. Is there another update coming out?
Good but key feature needs to be on first screen Hi Foscam. This is a great improvement on your earlier app. One key feature that needs a tweak is having the motion alert on the first screen so it is easily accessible to turn off and on like an alarm. This was one of key features of why I brought your cameras. Currently it's buried a few layers and is a pain in the butt to get to, to turn off and on.
-We fixed some bugs.
One of the best app for remote surveillance, local and cloud video recording.
