SwannView: Live Swann DVR viewing on your Android phone.

Note: This app uses a data stream that will connect to your DVR via 3G or WiFi. When using 3G, the video from your DVR will likely be considered "downloads" by your phone service provider and will contribute to any download limit your phone data plan may have. If you exceed any plan limits you may incur additional usage charges. Consult with your mobile service provider regarding the use of a video streaming app and how it may affect your plan.

User reviews of SwannView
It's clunky and it crashes the DVR sporadically. Then again any IP Camera Viewer crashes the DVR so it's the DVR's fault really. You'd think Swann could update the App so this doesn't occur but they've ignored my concerns so far.

Unable to even download My phone cant even install this thing. Cameras are great on the tv, but we got these so we could see what was going on when not home. Make this work and 5 stars all the way.
