I know lots of people really think this app is bad, and well there is room for improvement but this app does all you need is you want to connect your gopro to your phone. It works fine and connects quickly to my hero 4 session and I can control it off the app. I am really quite pleased with it. By the way, to watch your video how you recorded it you have to press share and or will download to your device.
Well, back down to 2 stars now as stupid requirement for internet login is relaxed BUT randomly pops up. It came up with request to access contacts, to take photos? I don't think so, blocked that. Pairing still hit and miss. Usually have to clear all and start again :(
Using this app as a remote is so cumbersome and time consuming. This app is needed to record in loop mode (best for dash cam). I also use my phone for both mapping and/or podcasts while I drive. If I leave Capture to play a podcast, then come back, once I've reached my destination or wanting to add a highlight tag, the app gets stuck trying to reconnect with the camera. It's soooo painful to use.
This app sucks donkey balls. Hardly ever connects to my hero 5 session AND have to push the button on the camera first before you can try connecting via wifi on my phone, which makes it IMPOSSIBLE to connect via wifi if you're not near it to push the button first. You guys have FAILED yet again with this app. My hero 5 session gets ridiculously hot when it's running anyway. So hot, in fact, you can't even hold it at times. Non-removeable battery is a joke in itself too
This app is awful, just how can this be acceptable. The Wi-Fi connection to mobile device from GoPro is bad, video upload to mobile device is choppy and buggy, and just frustrating to use. I will change my rating once there is an update that can make this app actually usable.
One of the worst apps I have ever used. Connecting from my smartphone to my hero 5 session is so frustrating. It keeps telling me to turn on my wireless connections even though both the camera and phone WiFi connections are turned on. If I get lucky, they'll make connection but once my phone goes to sleep or screen off, I lose connection. And sometimes even when I have connection and using "live view", none of the on screen buttons would work. I'm using s7 edge and s8 phones. I really like the camera. I absolutely hate this app!
