We are aware of this – and it will require a rework of the video player to support the audio separate from the video and to be able to keep the battery use at a minimum.
We actually have someone looking at this right now. So we are one step closer to implementing this feature
I have merged a few other ideas into this one, makes it easier for me to reply to you all!
We know this is a potential problem for some – we have needed to revamp the authentication features for the iOS app – which we are still addressing. It definitely something we are looking into though!
UPDATE 6/12/2016: We have the scripts for presets for most of our supported cameras. We will implement them soon but there needs to be a bit of refactoring before we get them in!

Which other specific Amcrest Cameras would you prefer to be added?jt commented
Looking for better Amcrest support on iOS app. I can add my camera, but no audio functions are available. Camera is an Amcrest IP2M-841. Hoping to be able to use sound and push to talk on this camera soon (PTZ works). thanks for a great app!
