Pros and cons of Foscam HD 2 Pro app for iPhone and iPad

Foscam HD 2 Pro app good for

The app is useful, albeit a little slow, but its constantly improving its functionalities.
Very easy to set up, a lot of options in use and very good pictures. Eventhough its primarily for Foscam, it would be great if you could add cameras like D-Link.
But problems with control buttons as message tells that rights are not given for control button. In old suveillance sw no problems. In this new no chance to activate even admin rights are given
The best camera app that Ive used. Money well spent! Very impressed.
Works very well but one of my camera need an update that add fi8620 automatic view points selection to be 5 stars
New version coming along very nicely, hopefully push notifications are in the near future.

Some bad moments

I’ve been using foscam cams and software viewers since years now. I acquired a new cam FI9800P model. This foscam pro2 viewer (even the foscam pro version) works fine when within my internal wifi network (with all camera models) but once i want to view it from the outside (DDNS - 3G/4G network) it doesn’t work anymore for this model only (FI9800P). The fun part is that using a competitor viewer (IP CAM Viewer Pro) it works fine !!! Thus, i strongly suspect a foscam pro2 viewer bug !! . Tested on iPhone 6+ & iPhone 6s - last iOS version Please contact me to fix the issue asap - available to help you analyse the behaviour.
Unfortunately still far too many stream errors when using this version. Picture quality excellent when the streaming is working. However until further I will stay with my old version of this software.
Too slow, sometime camera are not viewable in wifi mode, i have 8 cameras and its really a waste of time to try to setup this application. The 1 version is a very good application. Dont upgrade, the V2 is not ready at all.
No features whatsoever. Terrible notifications. Huge delay on video. I wouldve given it 0 stars but I dont have that option.
It use to work pretty well until my ISP blocked the possibility to port forward. Since that, it only works on LAN. I asked some questions to the developers, but i received no answer at all. Im giving 2 stars for lack of support.
The sound doesnt work and the video always has to be restarted. Old app doesnt have any of these problems.
