Several suggestions and reports
I'm pasting my iOS App Store review here to make sure it gets heard. The App Store has a dendency to over analyze reviews...
This app is great! I was able to set up my camera within a couple minutes. It scanned my network and found them all and preloaded the correct IP information. I am also able to connect remotely with my current network configuration.
I have it four stars because I have a couple concerns. Here they are;
I do not see the option to use HTTPS when connecting. This is a big deal. Please add this ASAP. Security is clearly an issue for anyone who has a home camera system.
I would like the ability to use the full potential of my cameras. (dcs-2132lb1, dcs-5222lb1) I do not have the ability to use PTT, enable audio, set day/night mode, or jump to PTZ presets.
Also, I use a VPN connection right now, and although I can connect remotely using my internal network IP addresses, it still prompted me to populate the external IP address fields. I did this using the same as my internal.
The ability to reorder your cameras within the app is missing along with a clear way to set motion detection on or off after the initial prompt you revive when setting up the camera.
All in all, the design and functionality of this app is great! It has so much potential and I hope to see some of these changes making there way out. Keep up the great work devs!
UPDATE Mar 2016: wow. Sometimes, the best plans are up for funny. All of the things stated below are true but we are in the midst of a proper rewrite of the iOS codebase – so it may take a little longer. Humble apologies.

Thanks for the feedback here – want to make sure you get the answers:
1. HTTPS is on the roadmap – sometime in October.
2. On the 2132 and 5222 – we do support the PTZ. But we are working on the other features.
3. If you are using a VPN, then you are always on your local network if they are on the same network – so you do not need the external details – unless you wish to access them through your home network providers router.
4. We are on the Sort feature – we had it a bit ago but it broke when we tried to clean up the original code. It is still on the backlog and will be addressed soon.
Https in October 2016 you say?
Well it’s now 2019, so when is it coming?
