I thought they were releasing an update to fix the login/offline issues. Since downloading the update, I can no longer login to my system from anything but directly in the DVR. This has got to be the absolute worst available. Just before the update, I could not get recordings to play, download, anything. I've cleared all my caches, uninstalled, reinstalled, updated, tried multiple devices, but nothing works,even though it shows offline I still get motion alerts??? Fix this or you've lost me 2

This app is utterly useless. You can not view your videos AT ALL. All I can do is view live. It gives you the option to review videos but all it does is load and never actually shows anything. This has been a problem for a year now. I plan on replacing the system and never using night owl again. Update.. 4 years later and problem not fixed. Thanks for the roely form developer saying they were aware and working on a fix in 2020. I'll never buy night owl again

I almost forgot why I removed this app from my device. Is completely useless. You can't get notifications when there are motion happening. Can't see the recordings either, they won't even populate. The other app is not available for the latest Android version. So this one is the only one that works for the latest Android version but is useless.
