Dump the sign-in please I had been using the earlier versions of this app for years to control my hero 3. It worked well enough. Now it won't without creating an account and logging in. I get that for sharing and such but not for controlling the camera. I learned this the hard way yesterday as I was on site and did not have time to create an account. Ended up not using the camera for the shoot.
Being forced to sign in to view stored photos/videos or use the app at all is not an improvement!! "Forgot Password" link diverts to a black screen, so the app is pretty much useless. Not going to buy anymore GoPro hardware until you fix this rubbish.
Why am I being forced to make ANOTHER account? Edit: Still no fix to make the login optional. You didn't need it before, you shouldn't need it now. / You already have my money, *don't* make me give you personal details just so you can spam me with marketing and try to get me to sign up for some BS 'cloud' service. Let me use my camera again like before! Your 'sign in' splash *needs* a 'skip' button, along with 'don't ever ask me again', so we can get back to the remote control UI.
Keeps logging out App keeps logging out for no reason, rendering it unusable in remote areas where I can't get a connection (really annoying). Why is an account even required if all I'm doing is controlling the camera? It also refuses to cut a clip if the part I want to cut isn't in the very beginning of the video.
App doesn't work at all App sucks so bad in all aspects. Needs an account to sign in, can't control the camera and worst part is it cant detect photos or videos so its impossible to transfer from gopro to phone directly. You guys can do better than this.
App won't work without an account anymore. Since the Update I'm forced to create a GoPro account in order to use the same functions that worked fine without any account before. That's just really sucky behaviour coming from GoPro. I bought two Hero action cams so far (Hero HD and Hero 3 Black Edition), but I can't see me buying another one now. There are other action cams that are made in china too, are cheaper and don't suddenly force youto share your data with the mothership.
