The Cocoon camera is a great concept, and the camera itself seems pretty good. However the App is severely lacking. The battery use is ridiculous, with my phones average life having literally halved since beginning to use this app. Additionally, upon going into live view mode, if I rotate my device to see the video in full screen, this will cause my device to reboot. Running on a Galaxy Note 3. The battery life issue needs to be fixed. There is no reason for any app to use this much battery power.
So far ok. But the app is draining my battery stupidly quick. Used 26% of it in under one day. Been running for 8hours+ in the background. Trying to tweak the settings in the battery saver menu but I don't think it's doing much. Any future updates to be in more control of the usage?
App is okay but battery usage is shocking. I shouldn't need to bring a power plant around with me to power my phone when away from the house.
Love the app. Easy to use and looks fantastic.
Camera: Really pleased with this now that it's adjusted to our home. The microphone is amazingly sensitive and it even pics up conversations people are having on the road outside our house - crazy! App: the devs seem very active and are releasing quality updates. There's still some work to do but it's working nicely as is. Recommended.
Had no problems and now our Cocoon has adapted to our flat, it's working very well. App is minimal and effective, only change I'd like to see is being able to adjust the geo-fence - our local is very close to my home and so it doesn't arm automatically when we're out but still nearby.
