  • Stolen Devices

    By socalcracker
    I have been using Manything for quite awhile to monitor my driveway for arriving guests and to make use of old iPhone. I was recently robbed and Manything video captured the car used by the thieves. To retain the video, I was able to upgrade easily where my Apple iTunes account will be charged. In moment of crisis, I didn’t even have to get up to get a credit card. I was able to easily email video to sheriff when he requested it. A few days later I had some login problems which were user error (password protected password list was on stolen computer). At 1:30 in morning I received email from Manything support person, which solved my problem. This app is a fantastic use of old iPhone.
  • Doesn’t work on older iPhones

    You must have the newest update on old iPhone and old iPhone died not support new update 👎
  • Great app!!!

    Hey devs, thanks so much for saving me a fortune on home surveillance! I use my old 3GS to check on my “security system” (dog)🤣🤣AND I can talk to him...!!
  • Great idea, but terrible outcome.

    By Mastergeko4
    This app is a great idea. Turning any old phone or tablet into a ho e security camera. Very nice idea. This app does have a few problems though. 1. This app kinda lied about the supported devices. For instance, I wanted to use my very nice iPhone 3GS as a home security camera and it was running iOS 6.1 and it should be supported with this app. Turns out, it’s not. In the app description it says that you can use any device with iOS 6 or later but when trying to download the app, a notification said that I needed iOS 8. Very disappointing. 2. Payment. At first I thought this was the greatest thing ever. I thought the app was free or you would make a one time payment when you buy the app. But I was wrong. You actually need to pay for how many days you want to use this app. (Sort of like a phone bill) it’s very annoying. So that’s why this app deserves a 2 Star Review. It’s a good app idea, but it’s also terrible.
  • Eh...

    While the app is a great concept and gives a use for old phones, tablets etc. the execution of the services is unreliable and inconsistent. Do not rely on this app as a sole source for monitoring your home. Could and should be used in addition to a more reliable system.
  • IPad constantly goes offline

    By Itssebastian94
    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.
