Edit - it now loads 😊

Edit: The below review is what I said earlier. After deleting the app and reinstalling it it now works on my phone, I apologise that I forgot to delete this review. After having it for a while I realise that this app has some serious capabilities. Absolutely incredible. Well done.

Old message:
I hate to be one of these people, but seriously, this app doesn’t load. As soon as I open on my iPhone 12 Pro it doesn’t load! It says something like dear user your phone is incompatible as you do not have LiDAR on your phone, and trust me, I do. I gave you 2, as for the people it does load for (like my brother) it works amazingly, but I can’t give you 5 for an app that won’t open on the device it’s built for. As soon as it loads, I will delete this review.

Great App - Issues Need To Be Addressed

I’ve been using Polycam for the last year and have been very impressed with its capabilities, and my coworkers and I have been using it for civil engineering applications. However, I recently ran into several issues. I read on another review that you must login to use the app offline. There are many locations where I wanted to perform scans that have poor cell service and therefore being required to be connected to the internet is a problem. Therefore, I created an account. However, it appears to have lost the scans I performed prior to creating an account and now it states “Oops an error occurred. Failed to sign-in. Please check your Internet connection and try again later.” My internet connection is fine, but I’m still getting this error. I hope the developers can address these issues quickly. I had intended on purchasing this app for a many more within my organization, but now I’m skeptical. Otherwise, this app is excellent, but this issues need to be addressed soon or we will have to stop using the app altogether.

Load screen freeze without access to internet - Slow load with location turned off

M1 iPad Pros both 11 and 12.9 inch both 1TB (16 Gb ram), iPhone 12 Max Pro running iOS 14.6. Polycam 1.5.4 - issues also in previous iOS and Polycam versions. Subscribed to yearly plan last month after using free for a short time. Free version worked as expected with internet or offline. After paying for app, it would hang at Polycam load screen for a seconds/minute or took me to touch screen,again, either with or without internet. Than few updates ago App stopped loading while offline. CAN NOT USE without internet! Deleting App (lost scanned data) and installed new version. Issue continue. Phone and tablet are portable devices that are used in remote location where cellular data or wifi is not accessible. Why is internet needed to load App? To require access to internet after subscribing is not fair. There are other free scanning Apps that work offline and without location data. Subscribed to support developer rather than free version. Free is not always Free (data farming). Hope issues are fixed in future updates.

Thanks for trying out Polycam, and sorry to hear about your issues! There was a bug in a previous version that caused the app to not launch sometimes -- we have fixed this bug in the latest version 1.5.5 that went out yesterday -- please update to the latest version and it should be fixed! Thanks again for the feedback!
