The app is OK! What peeves me is that, on my own timings, it takes 30 seconds for the camera to announce normal recording has started. No more quick get-always. It completely misses perhaps the most important part of any journey however short.
It's alright. Displays file names instead of proper dates, doesn't play one video after another so you have to watch them 1 minute at a time. Very annoying.
Watching a recording and/or downloading to phone fails 70% of the time and is extremely slow. Being able to view the footage on the spot in case of an accident is a a key functionality in my opinion.
App always crashes after trying to go back to the previous screen after watching a clip. Or trying to watch live feed. And when doing just about anything. Edit. The crash issue appears to have been fixed. There is an issue with connecting via WiFi. I always have to forget the network on my phone and retry a few times before it connects.
It took me a while to figure out how to upgrade the firmware on the unit (it came with very old firmware), but once I got it going, the app has been working great. It's fairly intuitive, and allows access to stored videos without having to remove the SD card.
I love the quality of my blackvue cloud camera. The video recordings are great and the camera itself is very small and unobstructive. The issue I have is that whenever I want to see a recording on my phone, half the time it tells me that "my device can't play this file" even though it can play the other half. This is unacceptable and a big problem because if the recording I need is not accessible then why do I even have the camera in the first place. It looks like an app issue rather than a camera one.
