Note: This app uses a data stream that will connect to your Swann NVR/DVR via 3G/4G or WiFi. When using 3G/4G, the video from your NVR/DVR will likely be considered "downloads" by your phone service provider and will contribute to any download limit your phone data plan may have. If you exceed any plan limits you may incur additional usage charges. Consult with your mobile service provider regarding the use of a video streaming app and how it may affect your plan.

This app has been horrible from day one, and it's never improved one bit. I've used it on several different internet connections over the years, so the app is the only thing to blame. The playback is the real issue, but several features don't work in the remote settings of the DVR through the app, either. When trying to watch the playback, it frequently fails to open the video. By frequently, I mean almost every time. You watch one video, then try to play another, and you have to close the app before it will open another video. It's getting worse, too, which is why I'm finally writing a review.

UPDATE- We have finally gotten rid of this Swann system that didn't work more often than it did work. We bought the Night Owl camera set up. Not only is the resolution impeccable, the app is easy to use, the system is easy to set up, and the cameras reach 300 ft. With swann It's the same issue we had for about 6 months you turn the screen horizontally and the screen goes to 25% of the screen within the app. This system is a waste of time and energy! Get the Night owl one! No subscription needed!

App hasn't been updated for 2 years and no longer works correctly with the latest Android update. Very disappointed as I've only had my system for 2 1/2 years and can no longer view them remotely. Update: 3/28/19. I contacted Swann, and emailed the app developer. Swann claims they have reached out to the app developer as well. Nobody has received any answers, including me. I was directed to use the Always Safe app which also does not operate properly trying to view recorded footage.
