  • No longer working on iPhone 3GS

    By Nawor3565
    I have two iPhone 3GSs that I used as cameras for awhile, but it seems that something has broken it on them. They will still send alerts when they detect motion, but I cannot view live video from them anymore. The app can't be updated on iOS 6 anymore, so it's not like an update broke it, it must be a problem on their end. If they can fix it on older phones I will change the review to 4 stars
  • Great!

    By Kruel2bkind
    I use this app with my iPhones and it has really put my mind at ease when I am not at home. I can see what my elderly mother is doing, and how her home attendants are treating her. Thank you so much. I didn't give it give stars because, you now have to upgrade and pay for things that were once free.
  • Many issues with thus app

    By Landspec1

  • Cameras disappeared

    By cordelearts
    "Camera" mode has disappeared from all my devices without doing anything. Can't find support on or offline.
  • Transition to landscape

    By CraneOpOKC
    It’s a great app, very useful. Alerts are nice. Only one complaint I have is, when switching from portrait (upright) to landscape (horizontal) the video you are watching will stop and go to the beginning and then you’ll need to press play again, but it starts at the beginning of the clip. Good job guys, keep the compatible cameras coming!
  • Many Stars to Manything!

    By Profdavis
    Love the latest version of this app! I have been asking for a way to sort cameras, and Manything has delivered (and more!). Awesome job with the new mobile interface! Cheers from across the pond!
  • Great Response

    By Wauwinet
    I use a couple of retired iPhones and it works perfectly. Terrific support if something goes wrong. 5.4.1 takes advantage of iPhoneX full screen. Highly recommended!
  • Alerts stopped in iOS 11

    By SCW1313
    **Update** I am receiving alerts now ************ Since the iOS 11 update, I haven’t received Manything alerts on my phone or iPad. Fortunately, I can still open the app and see if there have been any events recorded. Seems to be working OK, just haven’t been getting any alerts. I have been using Manything for over a year. Customer service is very attentive. I started using the app after getting threats on my life. This app made it possible for me to sleep at night. Although the app is less expensive then a home security system, it is a lot more expensive than most other app camera security systems. While I find it more reliable than most, I wish the prices were more competitive.
  • Loved it when it was free

    By Hnwillis
    Once I started tatted to pay for 5 devices then it would always kick out 2 of them after a few minutes. It could be the devices but I doubt it. They worked fine individually on free accounts and when I use other sites then it works just fine.
