-------- IMPORTANT --------

Due to incompatibility between Foscam SDK library and Android 6.0.x, Foscam Monitor app is currently unable to start direct-connection mode on some devices running Android 6.0.x. Furthermore, recent Google Play policy prevents us from fixing this issue by downgrading target OS version from Android 6.0.1 to Android 5.1.

If you are already using Foscam Monitor and have experience this problem, please install

Now S5 - verizon update issue Verizon did an update and now app wont work over wireless only wants to use data. They broke it. Emailed you over a week ago...please help!!!

John Baker

Don't be bamboozled... MY POINT IS THIS: How difficult would it be to put YOUR message "Foscam Monitor has recently been expanded so that it supports HD camera models, however only basic functionality is available at the moment. Please note extra functionality will be added on coming updates" that appears when you use the PAY version below the list of "App features" to be seen BEFORE buying rather than me having to download a DEMO version to find out they didn't work. And putting an approximate DATE when the functions should be working would also be helpful. Bamboozle: to confuse, frustrate, or throw off thoroughly or completely

Stephen Tristram Hazelwood

Great! Didn't work for awhile but started to work again. Watch this space...

Kevin Weaver

Easy to use Easy to use, but do you have to buy it for each device? Would like to have on our iPad and available for my wife and various babysitters as we are using as our baby monitor...any help appreciated! Also, I am having trouble with the settings. I turned on motion detected setting and I am not being notified upon movement of my son. Lastly, as soon as my screen locks the audio turns off. How do I prevent this from happening so I can hear the baby when he awakens?

Ryan Hespen

Great app! Only wish now that they would make a windows pc program for use on my home pc system. This is one of the better quality Foscam apps out. Keep up the good work!

William Hathaway

Easy Easy to use and set up takes time and when in use, loses connection and freezes a lot this app needs big time improvement.

Allan Hewison

An Excellent Ap that allows me to easily monitor and adjust cameras and receive Email alerts with pictures if movement is detected.

F. Bravo

LG G3 POS doesn't work on my new LG G3, nuff said!

John Ashplant

Eating data Used this for ages. Suddenly it's eating data. In 2 days nearly a month's worth has gone. Looking for an alternative.

Lonnie Gunther

Good App Almost exactly what I was looking for. Only thing I wish it would allow would be the ability to set a custom alert sound for the motion detection.

Andrew Roberts

Good app Latest version is working well. Recommended.

Ryan Hall

Decent. Have the 9821w v2 and app use to work for picture now doesn't work at all. What and where do you Find the media port number

Sheyne Branconnier

Updates work The new updates work great. the application is more stable and better than it's ever been. It seems to work perfect now

Kevin Keller

Fine till last update, erased my cameras and its been so long I will have to go through whole process again. Not happy...

Philippe Timothee

not super happy with latest upgrade for one, it deleted ALL my configured cameras. not fun. and second, it crashed when I try to select any of the camera I have (painfully) recreated. so, this is not working too well for me right now. and thx JP for replying but the find camera is not working and like I said, it's crashing right now, so it's pretty much useless.

Kylie Vennemann

Reloaded and not connecting Same problems others have had. Re added my camera but now when I hit the "play" button it does not connect to my camera. However if I click the 4 small views, it shows the view from my camera. How do I get the "play" button to work?

Snarkle Fletcher

Won't work after last update. After update it lost all camera info and still won't work after all camera data re entered. Uninstalled and re installed software but still same problem. Wish we could go back to last working version.

Paul Onisko

DO NOT UPDATED The update erased all my settings. Please fix so more people don't have to go back and spend time reinstalling your settings.

Ιωάννου Γεώργιος

Good! No issues at all,just using 1 cam atm,worth the purchase!

Francisco Forero

No connection Could not connect the cameras

Shari Peterson

Junk don't waste your time on this app. Junk

James Roberts

One of the better looking apps Nice looking gui, easy to use and setup, good features. I'm having some isssues with the most recent version, it keeps crashing (unfortunately foscam monitor has stopped working) which is very frustrating - it's always over wifi (stable fast connection) It is random when it happens. Can you fix this?

Mo W

Above average The software has gotten better over time.

Paul G

Best Foscam app Smoothest and best Foscam app. I tried most of the top 10 and this is the only one that worked flawlessly.

logans run

Rubbish Last update has made it impossible to connect./better now..3/19/14

Biron Lim

Great app. Does want in an ip monitor. Turns off and on all alarms from main screen. Other functions can also be controlled by app. Touch screen moves camera. Has multiple monitoring screens. One small problem was occasionally the cameras couldn't connect.was a problem with this app because other apps would work.would be trafficked by restarting app. You do this by simply stopping app from running then restarting.

Vasile Zaremba

Not worth it. Can't send mail on motion. Shouldn't have bought it.

William McCord

Monitor has stopped error message. Its worked in the past but now all I keep getting is"unfortunately foscam monitor has stopped" and then it closes out of the app. Is there any way to fix this?

Dan Bigda

Very good app I will give it 5 stars once we are able to record video (including on alarm/motion detection. Great start and I bet that the developer has these ideas in mind ;-). Looking forward to it as it is also very user-friendly! P. S. Hopefully, we will be able to access and control via cellular internet or tablet, etc.

Julian Perrott

1.46 works well on old nexus 7

Ogre Corsair

Great app Works perfect every time

Pete Wood

Very good Really good app and works very well with my foscam. It has useful features such as activating motion detection and also night vision options etc. Responsive on both WiFi and 3G. Well worth the asking price.

Robert Booth

Worked until phone and tablet were replaced UPDATE: APP WORKING AGAIN GREAT. PROBLEM WAS THE PLAY STORE, NOT THE APP! This app worked great on my Samsung galaxy skyrocketed and my Motorola zoom tablet, UNTIL my phone and my tablet needed to be replaced and I tried to download the app again from the Google play store. Although I paid for the regular version it does not allow me to download it again even though it shows me that I did purchase it.

Jeff Merkel

Worked for awhile. Latest update keeps crashing, now unusable.

Dan Cooper

Unreliable Never connects to individual cameras and only shows over view for 4 seconds then all cameras go blue and connection goes red.

Robert Smith

!!!! An Absolutely Top Quality APP !!!! I've been a self employed IT Tech for the past 29 years (I recently retired). After dealing with Foscam's horrible "blue cloud app" for 6 long weeks & spending more than 4 hours on the phone with their Support I finally gave up after they said they were unable fix my multiple issues. I then purchased "Foscam Monitor" v.2.13 by Amstapps (for only $3). All my issues disappeared & the best part is I can symataneously enable or disable "Motion Detect" on both my "F19821P" security cameras with a single tap.

Zhijun Liu

Does not support foscam fi9900p... It is able to manage motion detection schedule for fi9831 and C1 camera.

Justin Lara

Data killer This app gets stuck on in the background even after you clear you running apps. Uses gigs fast

Kellen Arb

Just a few small issues For my use (baby monitor) this app is almost perfect: -Dark colors make checking at night a non-painful event -All camera functionality is available and works. I do wish I could pinch to zoom the image, and landscape mode is as must (again, for a bigger picture).

Maria Singh

Help. Can someone tell me how to use it over the network. The link in companies description is dead. As well as on website. Works great over WiFi but when I'm away I can't make it work. What email address do I send a question to

John Ashplant

Latest update does NOT work with my H264 Foscam. Connects but picture does not load then stops working. I have had to look to another app which works perfectly.

Kaylene Dean

Works well, happy with performance Previously gave a low rating due to a bug in an update but all working well again for me. Thanks for a prompt fix JP. :)

Emily Neiheisel

The best app! I had trouble with this app in the past, but the owner was quick to resolve my issues! Perfect for what I need!

Mark Berry

Latest Update Updated today and it attempts to connect to camera before ultimately closing the app. Prior to update it worked fine on Nexus 77. Just installed update and app working fine, thanks for rectifying. Mark

Gunnar Gabrielson

Update (v2.09b) -- App working again perfectly. Thanks J.P.! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Update (2.09) completely broke the app. Every time I try to load a camera it crashes. Completely unusable now. Was decent before this update though. Hopefully gets fixed asap.

Kara Hall

Better, bugs fixed Back to normal and works like it did before the update. No complaints here :-)

Diana Rees

Update isn't working Super annoyed I use this as a baby monitor and the app isn't working since the update. I can't open the cameras. I usually like the app but want it fixed please!

Andrew Sharicz

Buggy app Constantly falls to connect, works about half the time. Latest update broke it entirely it wont connect to the camera at all.

Dani Hughes

Full of bugs I don't give out one star reviews lightly but this app has been nothing short of a joke. I can't believe I actually paid for it. I could never pull my cameras up the first time. It always took two and sometimes three attempts and that was when I could open them at all. But I was willing to overlook that and continue using the app until the most recent update. I was so hopeful that it would finally fix all of the issues I had been having, or at least some of them. Instead, I can't open my cameras. At all. ?

William Hathaway

Easy Easy to use and set up takes time and when in use, loses connection and freezes a lot this app needs big time improvement. Update now stops working.

Ian Case

Broken after latest update Love this app but the latest update is broke for me as it seems to be for most. Thumbnail works fine but clicking to enlarge crashes the app. Once fixed, its a 4 or 5 star app for me.

Chris Kelly

Upgrade broke the app Force closed when clicking on camera and for some reason the icon has gone missing.

ian smith

Title? When the app works, it's 5-star. But often times when I poke at a camera to blow the view up, it'll tell me I have the wrong camera type, or just say it can't connect. But then after multiple attempts it connects! I know the cameras, I know this app, and all of the settings involved, and I'm sure I have everything set up correctly. But it just doesn't always connect. I'd say I experience about a 25% failure rate, which is unacceptable for a device that is being used for my security.

Becci Adams

POS You NEED an update !!!! It won't work more than 2/3 of the time ! Different IP address and or port DAILY ! Crashes nearly every time I try to open it or just freezes up and won't do ANYTHING !!! I PAID FOR THIS APP ! I WANT MY MONEY BACK !

Dan Cooper

Bad update Doesn't work for nexus 6 any more . still showing 2.14. Please send me the 2.13 version so I can have a hard copy.

Kaylene Dean

Latest update has broken it :( Please fix it, it has been working brilliantly until the last update. Now it just force closes it as soon as I go to view the camera.

Andrew Roberts

Great app Works very well. Developer is very responsive if you have a problem also.

Joe Jhung

Doesnt work Upgraded to version 2.14 and I cant connect to the camera. Tried other free apps which connect fine.

Greg Morrison

Very good just missing one thing Wish I could record video to my phone like other apps do. Please add that option so I don't have to run 2 apps. Update. The app uses a lot of my battery. I mean a lot power manager says my screen is 1 this app is 2 and cell radio is 3. It uses more then hardware does. Please fix!!!!!!!!!

John Kanellos

Deducted one star for calling me Dan.. LOL..

Ian Case

Broken but workaround provided Broken again after update, but the dev works hard. This app is great when it works, and I've knocked off 1 star for it breaking frequently but the dev does go above and beyond to fix issues, even ones outside of their control. Glad I spent the money on the app to support great devs like this one.

Andrew Roberts

Great app Works very well. Developer is very responsive if you have a problem also.

Norbert Spiteri

It's great I love it. Only things I ask..a) ability to group cameras together, b) where is the gallery folder when I take a picture? And c) ability to rotate image by 90 degrees

Kaylene Dean

Almost fixed with latest update Latest update has allowed me to view the camera but no longer supports 2 way audio due to loss of the direct connection function. I use the camera as a pseudo baby monitor so the audio component is important to me. Hope this comes back on board soon.

Glenn Van Slyke

Broken Last version worked well. Latest update has broken it. Always force closes when selecting a camera.

Dan Cooper

Great app Depending on which phone you have!! it may work great or you need to contact the developer for a version that works best with your specific OS version. He is very responsive and helpful.

Sean K

Doesn't work and it won't give my money back Everytime the camera connects it immediately disconnects. It keeps going in this cycle. Fix it or give my money back.

Don Cat

Works Fine Have used this app for a few years now, originally to keep an eye on my elderly parents and then to watch over the house that was empty for several months and everything has worked fine.

Dani Hughes
