Change font style on freeze frame of live stream on lower-left bottom corner

In the iPhone app, the freeze frame for each camera has text in the lower left indicating how long ago the freeze frame was taken. But the font is white letters with no shadow, no boxing, so if the background of your freeze frame is white in that area, you cannot see the time stamp. This should be an easy fix. Surround the text with a semi-transparent black box so the letters can be seen. Or simply change the font to one which carries shadowing or boxing. It would also be nice if we could turn the phone sideways and see these freeze frames larger but obviously that’s a bigger ask. Thanks!

Hi barebodkin,


The Arlo development team routinely reviews posts in the Arlo Idea Exchange to assess which features the community would like to see implemented. We greatly appreciate the community’s contribution and will keep the status of this idea updated as we get new information on its potential implementation. Thank you for posting your idea!

When viewing status in the Android version of the Arlo app, the white text showing last activity for each camera gets lost on light portions of the picture. Could you show the white text inside of a black box for visibility at all times ??
