Thank you for your comments. It really concerns me that we spend money on devices that can get outdated and useless in a relatively short time. Seems to me there could be newer versions of the App while older versions still work on older devices.
I bought a total of 12 cameras and 3 sync modules - a bit of an investment. I bought the first set about two years ago and the others about a year ago ( or less). Now, unless I buy a new device, they are rendered useless. I want to use my iPad with them. I do not need a smart phone, and Blink does not work on computers.
I really don’t understand why older apps still work on my older iPad, but Blink cannot. Now, Blink can only work with the updated app. Why can’t the older Blink app still work? Is there really nothing that can be done? I never would have bought these cameras if I realized they would become non functional so quickly.
I contacted support. They said nothing can be done.
I have seen a lot of older software that still works on newer operating systems. It just seems to me that there could be some fix. Maybe some code could be added to the version of the Blink app we’ve been using to allow it to work. Heck, when we were seeing the message to update now or later, the Blink app was still working. Then, all of a sudden, we were blocked out. Why was it still working a few weeks ago?
We made an investment in Blink by buying their cameras. I feel Blink should make an investment in us by solving this problem. There are many of us facing this same problem
