My thanks to Manything for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed. Manything is a free app that turns your iPad, iPod Touch, or old iPhone into a cloud-enabled video monitoring camera.

Manything offers continuous cloud recording and instant setup. You can watch live streams remotely and have motion-activated alerts, with advanced motion detection thresholds and zones. They’ve even added IFTTT integration, which allows you to trigger recording automatically when you leave home and a whole lot more.

Manything is a really clever way to repurpose an old iOS device (or even a new one, like the updated $199 iPod Touch that now has dual cameras). Watch the video on their website to learn more, or just go ahead and download the free app from the App Store to see for yourself.
