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.
This app requires a sign in to your gopro account and an internet connection, considering that most of my filming is in a place where I don't have service the app becomes completely useless. As for when I am using it in the living room where there is perfect service while the app works fine it seems like a giant ad. The majority of the screen space is dedicated to gopros photo of the day and links to buy more GoPro stuff.
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!
I just don't know why it always shown there was an issue to transfer file to my gopro hero5 black when there is an update. It is so annoying and i am sure tht it is not the phone problem as both my s6 and s8 shown the same thing. Also the connection between phone and the camera is so slow and lag...hope it can be improved and solved. We pay so much on the camera and we definitely need it to be worth for the value.
This is quite literally the worst media app I have ever used. Buggy as all hell, slow, heavy, very limited options when managing media, unintuitive. GoPro, I paid $600 for your camera. Is developing a half decent app to manage it really that hard?
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.
