Re: ARLO Pro/Pro 2 iOS and Android Apps video Feed Issues :- Iphone XS Max Arlo App 2.6.2 on IOS12.1

Please Development Team let us know when the next version post 2.6.2 will be released and let the Arlo community know, so we can at least have an idea when we can use the product again

Live view is unusable and hangs my Iphone XS Max every time, you can't even click the side buttons

Please urgently fix and release a new version soon

This is the worst version of Arlo IOS app I have ever experienced in the last 2 years , at least previous versions did not hang your phone .

 

You have such an excellent product I have had very few issues with connectivity and I have 9 cameras.

 

But all the new software releases are destroying your reputation, together with your outdoor power cables which were advertised as waterpoof but were not, even though you issued a recall, who will pay for my electrician to go up on the roof and replace 8 cables, this was an extremely disappointing state of affairs.

I have spent over $2500 on your system and my confidence level is getting lower with every IOS Arlo app release.

Please listen to your users and field test your software properly before releasing it.

App Freezing when Live Streaming

I’m having issues with my app since the update 2 days ago. Every time I open the app, it functions fine, but when I go to live stream one of my cameras, I can hear audio but the screen is completely frozen. I have to soft reset my phone every time just to get out of the app. Anybody else experiencing this/have a solution?

Re: Arlo App Updates Crashing 11/21/18

I read a thread on Google to go back to the last update, "2.6.2_22800"
I downloaded it and got my camera surveillance working again. I don't know how to disable automatic updates, but at least it's back and working for now.
Good luck,

Re: Arlo App locks up

Latest Arlo app crashes on startup for me too.   Previous version was fine.   Since upgrading to 2.6.3_23000 there is an issue.    Tried uninstalling and still have issues.   Please could the devs fix ASAP.

Re: Arlo App IOS problem

You didn't contact Arlo support - it's free. Stop Googling for support and use the links here. Use the Contact Support link at the bottom here and again on the new page. On the 3rd page are options.

I would run complete scans on your device to try to remove any possible malware installed by the scammers if you allowed them access.

Re: Arlo App Updates Crashing 11/21/18

Sir,
If you can download the earlier version of the update from October.
This will get your system back working. Uninstall the newest version first. Then install 2.6.2_22800
You can get it on Google as a free download.
Worked for me.

Re: Arlo iOS App 2.6.2 issues

Ok this is a long shot and I don’t know if this fixed it. But right before it started working I went into iOS settings scrolled down and opened Arlo and switch on the ‘classic UX’ switch, then opened Arlo and viewed live video and it worked. I then switched classic ux off and it’s continued to work so far.

Re: 2.6.2 is broken

Do yourself a favor and return the system. It's literally junk now.

Re: Arlo app is causing my iPhone XS Max to crash

Same - app completely crashes every time I try to watch a video, live stream or otherwise. This morning, had to hard reset my Iphone XS Max. Latest software iOS update installed, and deleted and redownloaded Arlo app - did nothing. FIX THIS PLEASE, I use this for my baby monitor and live in a city that is NOT safe, especially when burglary increases around the holidays.

Re: Arlo and iPhone MAX and IOS 12.1 - Do not work

There is no solution yet except downgrading the app by installing an older build found on Google (works for some poeple). Arlo has not yet acknowledged this as an issue and that should be the first step

Re: Arlo Baby - iOS 2.6.2 is BROKEN/UNUSABLE

Arlo is a joke. The last two upgrades either crashes the iPad or iPhone. Version 2.6.2 now crashes the iPhone. Everyone, please tell people not to buy this product. The company is terrible in replying to bug issues

Re: Arlo Baby - iOS 2.6.2 is BROKEN/UNUSABLE

This software issue is a joke. Tell everyone you know not to buy this product. It has not worked since version 2.5.1. All of versions 2.6 and higher do not work and they they crash the iPhone   They are clueless how to fix it and release upgrades without any testing. Just buy an iPhone and install it and you will see that it doesn’t work. Tell anyone thinking of buying this product.

Exit app and force close it.
Go to your control center and start a screen recording.
Go back into arlo app and it works fine. Try this

Make sure you force close arlo before starting screen recording.

Re: Arlo and iPhone MAX and IOS 12.1 - Do not work

Same issue here...broke on the latest update.  iPhone Xs Max - 5 cameras mix of Arlo 2 and original.  Contacted support - they had me try a few dumb things as usual.  You really have to wonder if they test this stuff.  We should start a Go Fund Me so that they can all buy the new iPhones or give them a pot of money to hire us to test for them.  C'mon Man!!
