Thank you for correcting me.  I did not notice the two arrow icon as it comes and goes.  After it fades it is hard to find unless you know where is was originally. In any case, my apologies to the developers for that part of my concern. I still get the inane ad. Not something I need to “learn more about”!  Thanks for the tip.

Glad it worked. You are welcome!

FYI, you shouldn’t have remember where the control is. Tap anywhere on the screen when the controls have faded away, and they should be restored for a few seconds.

I just want to say the latest upgrade (2.7.0) works very well for me. I have an iPhone XS Max with IOS 12.1.2 and before this upgrade I had a number of issues. All except some geofencing issues sorted now. Very pleased for the moment.

That is amazing.  How many and what type and age are your cameras and bases?  Everyone I know is having a heck of a time with the current app on iOS.  All are on the latest release of iOS and on new or very recent devices in most cases.  Though I will say, the app appears to work better on my iPhone XS than it does on my 11” iPad Pro.  It is also MUCH worse on my wife’s iPad Air 2.

Here's my setup:

 

- iPhone XS MAX, iOS 12.1.2 (16C101)

- Arlo IOS App, version 2.7.0

- 2 x Arlo Base Stations: VMB4000r3, Firmware: 1.12.0.1_27940

I have a 1Gbit fiber Internet connection and 1Gbit ethernet LAN.

That’s a good size system...not one or two cameras for sure.  

 

I’m sure I push the limits with 35 cameras being monitored by the app.

New IOS 2.7.1 out. No improvement on iPad. Long load time .... thumbnails go black when trying live view., and crashes!!!!!

Typical ... probably fixing new hardware performance. Will take at least to 2.7.3 to see fixes. Remember last 2.6 launch. Didn't function until 2.6.3 ... sort of.

Wow what a mess ...

Yes.  No noticeable change for me either on my 11” iPad Pro.  30 seconds for the app to startup and become usable.  Library images very slow to become visible and available.  Crashes frequently.

 

As a comparison, V2.5.5 starts up in 6 seconds on my 10.5” iPad Pro.
