Ratings and Reviews
Much improves access
I was not happy with the updated App for Ring. When I went to the App Store I found the alternative Rapid Ring App. It’s great!
Faster and direct to the Live View in a few simple taps. It also gives the option to link back to the original App if you want to access your history. I recommend that you download Rapid Ring if you want to speed up your Ring service.
However, it seems STUPID that it is necessary to use two apps to increase the functionality of the Ring Door Bell. The original APP worked just fine before they began to tinker and upgrade.
What a mess of an App
I wanted to like this app. Fast access, easy to navigate but the constant notifications will drive you insane especially if you use the Home/Away/Disarmed modes. I have cams that are blocked when we are home since I do not want to have it record for all users access. Private areas of the home that should be blocked when I use the Home mode. Nope not with this app, it just keeps recording away for all to see, places the information in your timeline for any users who have access to the App including children. This is a major issue since it overrides any setting you have in the orginal ring app for ANYONE who uses the app. WARNING, this app does not understand Home/Away/Disarmed modes. So if you have other people who help monitor your home and you run through the house naked, SURPRISE they are getting a serious motion alert. Removing the app allowed the original Ring app to go back to the job it is supposed to do. Block recording when you need it blocked. If you don’t care about the mode setting this is a great app. But when you have multiple people who have access to private areas of your home they are watching away without any notification other than by chance you looking into your timeline history. I was shocked and embarrassed at it recoding private areas of my home. If they allow this app to understand the modes, I will download it in a minute.
I posted an extensive review of the original Ring app, so I won’t go into a bunch of detail here and just cut to the chase. After having an endless amount of issues with the Ring app making my cameras useless, I hoped downloading this app would solve my issues. However, I’m continuing to experience almost the same problems. The camera will load more often than the Ring app but neither would load late last night when I received motion alerts. And for those who may think it’s a wireless issue, it happens whether or not my iPhone 11 Plus is on WiFi or LTE/5G and both cameras have “Great” signal.
I’m continuing to lose hope in this company over something so ignorant as making their app work like it used to. I never used to have an issue like this when I bought the original Ring Doorbell. As I mentioned in my other review, why would time and finances be spent on making an entirely new app to try and fix the issues with the other Ring app? Why not invest in fixing the one you have? It’s beyond me. I guess I will continue to pray it actually connects to my $500 cameras (Doorbell Pro/Floodlight) if and when something happens and when it doesn’t, putting my family/home in jeopardy- that moment is when I will throw them in the trash and go with another company. I mean, I have a $30 “Wyze” in-home camera that connects EVERY time.
