  • IPad constantly goes offline

    Unfortunately I am being forced to delete the app. Every single day, my iPad goes offline and I have to constantly connect it to the internet even though is connected to a high speed internet.
  • Developers are ALL OVERPAID!!!

    By surferchicusa
    You’ve seriously GOT to be kidding me with this app! I have the LATEST VERSION INSTALLED, & YET when I open it, I get the default message that I NEED TO UPGRADE. So for 💩’s & giggles I click on THEIR LINK for the “update,” only to be brought back to the Apple store link for his app.... the app that is already UPDATED & installed. Here we go round and round again in circles because some moron took a aft by night class in app development. Get your act together for the love of Christ!

    This is not a friendly user app
  • (UPDATE) I created an account

    By sweetviolet79
    I downloaded Manything to my phone & an old iPad. I created an account. I thought I would use this set up as a security camera. I logged into manything on my phone... I’ll repeat. I am logged into manything on my phone RIGHT NOW... so naturally I went to log in on my old iPad using the same account. On the iPad, it claims the account I am currently logged into on my phone, doesn’t exist. I double checked my credentials. I input the correct email & password, but only one device is recognizing my account. I’ll try again tomarrow, but if I can’t log in on at least 2 devices, manything is useless to me. UPDATED ... 8 hours passed (overnight). Manythings on the iPad now recognizes my account. I’m raising my star review to 3 as the app appears to be functioning well enough, with no issues (so far). I have been able to monitor one room from my phone, I’ll be adding a second room shortly. I don’t anticipate any further connectivity issues like I saw earlier. I’m now mostly satisfied, though I still find Manythings to be lacking. I had hoped to find a Manythings app for AppleTv, so I can monitor multiple rooms from there... without luck. I’m deducting one star for slowness to become usable (a ‘monitor’ without a ‘camera’ is useless. I had to wait overnight to set up a camera for the purpose of monitoring.) I’m deducting one star because there’s no AppleTv app. I’d much rather use my Tv as the monitor I view my informal security camera system from.
  • Keeps getting better!

    By ChrisK153
    I’ve used Manything on iPhone 4/4S/5/6 - It’s been a good solution, but sometimes it would drop the connection. However, with the latest versions the reliability has been much improved. I currently have 5 cameras around the house and feel it’s more dependable than ever.
  • Doesn’t work

    By Mike$697
    Seemed like a good deal but the features just don’t work. No videos show on my phone using the app so I tried online using a pc. It showed the videos but it plays a blank screen. Sad to cancel subscription only after 2 days.
  • Works perfectly for what it is

    By Shardison
    1. You need some light for motion detection to work. I have one camera looking out a window next to my front door. A dim yellow porch light is enough. 2. You need a good wireless internet connection. Jerky “scrubbing” is likely “crappy connection.” Works great for me. 3. Mounting the phone can be challenging. 4. I use as a backup alert system to other installed cams.
  • Love this app

    By #1SPAGIRL
    I have used this app in my business and have found people on camera doing things like damaging my property, when you have someone on film you don’t have a he said she said problem. The pictures are clear and leave no questions as to what you are seeing. I also have inferred cameras and the pictures don’t even compare to what I get from my iPhones connected to Manything. Thanks Manything you have saved my businesses property on more then one occasion!
  • Peace of mind at a great price!

    By Lemon-Jenny
    I’m using Manything on iOS 11 and absolutely love it. The recent UI updates are beautiful and only add more to an already great app. I love that I have a great purpose for recycling old devices, I love that it works on both android and iOS, and I have never had outages that are the fault of the app. It’s one of my most-used apps and I am just grateful it exists! Home security peace of mind, and so inexpensive. Love it! Keep adding new features and keep up with the great customer service. :)
  • Great

    By Crashes every time I use it
    I have been using this for close to a year on two iPhones (5c & 5s) I have the 5c disguised outside on a covered porch and the 5s is inside. I have been very impressed with everything. The app is stable. I have only had to reboot the phones maybe 3 times each. I have not had any issues checking footage from another app or PC. I have contacted customer service once or twice and they were responsive and helpful. For the money the 2-cam, 2-day subscription is worth every penny. More days are saved and available online if needed which is a little added peace of mind. Alerts work well, though I've turned them off. Motion detection is consistent, I have or pointed towards the street and it captures every car in the exact same spot each time. Plays well with IFTTT so you can do custom things like "turn of the inside camera when I get home", "turn in the smart porch light when motion is detected", "turn on all cameras when I leave home", etc.. All in all 7/7 would buy again, is a good use of old phones. Requires some thought and setup to get the phones mounted and charging where you might want them.
