I’ve already complained about the newest versions, but now with the latest 4.0.24 update, you get a notification that you have a new video, you go to the Blink app, if you are on the camera screen, no yellow dot shows on the folder showing you have a new video. If you then go to the videos then go back to the cameras, then the yellow dot shows up…it’s a little late by then.
I have an iPhone 10. I still don’t like the controls on the screen. As I said in my earlier post, if I want to delete the video early, I have to tap on the video, hit delete, hit yes, then it goes back to the list of videos, not to the next one to view. We used to hit the trash, click yes, next video would come up.
Also, many times I can’t get the blue dot to drag back or forth in the video very easily, when I do, the controls normally show up. It’s a little hard to see around them. I can’t get forward/back blue dot to work well at all in landscape mode, the dot is so low on the screen, when you do think you have your finger on it, you just end up sending the whole video off the screen. I did some testing, in landscape mode. If you hit play in normal mode, turn your phone to landscape, the dot to move the video forward or back is too low to use, if you then tap the video, the blue dot moves ups so you can get to it. Why wouldn’t it be up where I can get to when the video starts?
Please help us. This app used to be so easy to use, now it is just cumbersome. Seems newer is not always better.
