REMOTE VIEW INSTRUCTIONS - Swipe to "Remote View" then tap "share viewing link". This will allow you to send yourself the link where the feed will appear. Next, tap ACTIVATE and hit the red button to start a remote viewing session. Then, simply visit the link in a web browser. If you get a 404 not found page error, that's because you have not actually started the feed by pressing ACTIVATE and hitting the red button. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
IMPORTANT - Phone calls, text messages and emails cannot be suppressed by ANY app on the Apple App Store. ReconBot is no exception. Also, apple enforces the audio shutter sound to play when taking a covert photo due to various state privacy laws. If this is a concern for you, we recommend turning your volume all the way down or putting your phone into vibrate mode.
STORAGE SPACE - Recordings can take up large amounts of disk space. You can control this in a few ways. Most importantly, set the recording quality to a suitable setting. High quality will produce better recordings but require more storage space. After a video has been recorded, ReconBot can trim and/or compress it to save space and keep only what you need. ReconBot also has the ability to crop photos.
NEW FEATURES - We'd love to hear your ideas for ReconBot updates! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want a truly stealth camera app, then this is the app for you. Explore the options and ask questions before you leave bad ratings please.
To make your recordings and photo capturing with a black screen, turn "trigger mode" on. I love the app. It's greeaaaatt
Now that I finally know how to use it, it's great.
Turn the trigger mode on morons!!! That activates the black screen! Jeez, you guys are idiots!!!
Program works just as advertised good program!
They make it sound like you can watch live video from your iPod on your computer. You can't! It only emails a picture that it takes the exact moment you press send.
Useful and reliable. Would like to see even more great features. For example, the option for a small viewfinder, the option to take multiple photos in one press, and some different choices of screen shots other than black like a text, phone call, browser and/or notes screen. Keep up the good work!
I like surveillance because sometimes it is necessary.
At first I thought that you couldn't switch between front and back cameras since I wanted to use the front camera. I then realized that you actually can switch between back and front camera. The front camera trigger mode is awesome since you can just point the screen at your target rather than pointing the shutter at them (which makes them more suspicious)
Way better than all the others.
Is very useful app, friendly to use
I bought this app and it is useless, you cannot even use it while screen is blacked out. I have no clue what this app is even for except to steal $2 from people. Thanks for nothing asswipes.
If you could select front or back camera it would help ;)
This is not a gimmicky app!! Everything is totally real & WORKS!! Remote /record functions r awesome!
This app is a total waste of money if you're looking for a secret type of recorder. If you're trying to record something without anybody knowing you're recording and you buy this app you will be severely disappointed And not only that you would have wasted a dollar. If you set this app to record secretly what happens is the screen goes blank and then to get back to the screen you're supposed to tap and hold the screen and the app reappears. the problem with this is if your press the home button the app stops recording if you go back to the app it stops the recording and if you receive a phone call or a text message or an email this stupid app stops recording!! This app is a total joke a waste of money and the designers are committing fraud don't waste your time money and energy on this POS.
No audio when replaying audio and video files. Customer support did not respond to my inquiries.
It is worth it
Don't by this app if you want a black screen. It does not work
I've tried many of the "spy" video and photo apps available on the App Store. This one is by far the best that I have used (still using). Video: Pros - Great quality video. Can easily transfer to any directory on your Mac or PC using iTunes. Cons - No motion detection if you want to set it up for that kind of use. Photos: Pros - Takes full resolution photos quickly. Can also transfer photos to your Mac or PC using iTunes Cons - No motion detection. No option to have it take a photo at multiple intervals (like a photo every second, 10 seconds, every minute, etc…) No option to select infinite focus. Audio: Pros - Captures the audio and works as designed. No complaints! Cons - Sound detection would be nice to have if you want to leave your phone and capture a conversation while you are gone. You can schedule it to start recording, but not record from sound detection. Remote View: Pros - Wasn't difficult to set up and start. Was able to view feed from a different location. Cons - Low quality video; choppy and pixelated. No option to stream over wifi. No option to have motion detection. Overall, a great program to capture videos, photos and audio. Remote view is not so good, but I do not use this app for remote viewing. Worth the money for what you get. Improvements: Add an option to capture photos at timed intervals from constant to maybe every hour (and everything in between?) Motion detection for video and photos. Infinite focus for photos.
Works great on iPod touch
Work as advertise, except its not functioning once the phone is locked out mode, and it would be better if there are more functions on the web, like activate the apps and camera over the web.
Works as advertised. Phone froze after 1st capture rebooted and it was there. Would be complete and perfect app with motion or sound activation. Tried transferring video per instructions to my computer and all I got was blank video with sound. No help whatsoever from support. Not even a response. Try to transfer video to phone, says it did but does not. Trim video from 60mb to 20mb but phone tells me it still taking 60mb of storage.?????
So great and very easy to use
Not so much
App works ok but the screen doesn't go black and that's the main reason I bought it, this is why I can only give it 2 stars. Once this is fixed I would happily change it but if not its getting deleted.
Screen is NOT black while recording, not very covert. Recording with a black screen is not prohibited, apps such as pocket spy and camya black out the screen, Save your money if your buying this for recording secretly, someone can look at the screen and when they see the screen is the camera view and the bright blinking red light they will realize something is amiss. BTW, pocket spy and camya is not the only app where the screen is black(not locked, just black), Just type spy and record in your search. This app. is bollocks.
Awesome recommend to all.
Thanks for the update cool app.
Very useful app
Great app to play around with or use in serious situations. Sometimes takes too long for remote viewing to activate, but overall no problem.
Doesn't turn off when phone locks (this is a huge plus). Dark screen isn't dark enough though - it is clear the phone is on. Needs two things: darker screen/custom backgrounds and other ways to wake from recording (touch and hold screen too simple -- could be done by someone investigating accidentally).
love this app. Does everything it says that it will do very well done. bravo, bravo !!!!!!!!
Yes! Finally this app works I'm so glad to have gotten the update and now it works perfect thanks!
In iOS 6 and iPhone 4S. Thanks for the fix! Love the app! Don't like - Constant screen flash try free app - Photo capture mode is not that sharp, sometime blur, etc... need picture clarity improvement
Thanks for the update, love this app Five stars
Great app really awesome but the screen doesn't go off. It can't be a secret recording device if you can see that it's recording. Fix it please.
Remote view is awesome.
This app had great features that use. I like the remote option and scheduler. Hope there are big updates coming, can't wait!
Needs iOS 6 support fast!!!
I really could have used this app last week, but found another to replace for now called Spy&Capture. Please fix, this app is superior!
very nice app, cool as the speeder bike on star wars
Love it, but won't open at all with the new iOS 6 update. Please fix!!!!!
