  • Billing problem

    By rushsteve
    I upgraded to Presence Pro for a month and all I needed was a month. Towards the end of the month I checked within the account settings part of the app and it said I had no active subscriptions so was led to believe I had only signed up for 1 month. However, I ended up getting billed by Apple for another month. Getting this refunded was a hassle. So, even though the app worked pretty well and I’d give it 4.5 stars on its own, the billing issue drags the whole experience down to 2 stars. And, I learned the hard way that you should handle all subscriptions from within the App Store.
  • Outstanding app!

    By U4ictheory
    Presence is an amazing app... If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. I've tried a few "free" security camera apps, this is the only one that has NOT failed me... The app is very user friendly, any questions I had were answered quickly. App functions flawlessly, I can't even think of a bad thing to say about it.
  • Best APP ever!

    By Ewcbhc
    I downloaded this APP to my iPhone 4 and iPhone 5.. It was very easy to use and worked well on both iPhones. One is used for viewing and the other for recording and motion detection. I get email with attached link to view the video. It even works on my 2012 iMac. This is an awe inspiring program! Very well done! I have turned my old iPhone into a very effective security camera. WOW!
  • Can’t make it work

    By Ryker Robert
    Using IPhone 4s as the camera; does not activate, no camera image on 4s or the monitoring phone.
  • All Good

    By Exolimit
    Love being able to make a camera from old phone.
  • Good for what it does

    By Mr.TurdFerguson
    Good app. Let’s you repurpose your old iPhones into cameras - a wonderful idea. App is glitchy tho. I sometimes turn on automatic recording when leaving the house, see that it’s enabled, but find out later it disabled automatically. And vice versa. App hangs often as well. Randomly gets disconnected from server. So you have to keep checking in on the app/cameras to make sure they’re up and running. Could use a little more flexibility for the free version, but it’s better than other apps that do the same thing.
  • It’s awesome!

    By Josh1773
    I will recommend this to my family!
  • Besides Blink, the Best of the Lot

    By kirkatude
    Using old iPhones, the best.
  • Love the concept but app is HORRIBLE

    By Lamplightermk101
    Slow, laggy, randomly crashes... horrible. Just horrible. You might get this for a novelty but DO NOT count on this to work. (I bought the paid version) What an absolute waste of money.
  • Issues with iPhone X?

    By Taken2018
    Used to work acceptable before I got iPhone X. Don't know what's in iPhone X where I don't get real time video history that I used to get before with older iPhones. Looking for a better alternative now. Anyone have any recommendations?
