Is it hard to make YOUR app connect to YOUR device without a problem for the user. App and firmware updates make situation even worse. I would recommend to buy any cheap action camera rather than GoPro. UPD: your fault. After downgrade firmware it works. Very bad customer experience and service. No info about downgrade. And silly advice to stay with the latest update.
I've had nothing but trouble since changing to another smartphone. I tried pairing both as connected to phone first time and connected before. I have noticed my camera username ended up in list of Wi-Fi connections, I have everything to clear it but nothing works This needs s fix
Since the last update, I'm having trouble downloading videos. Takes forever to find the media and then it just gets stuck. Also, now my location needs to be enabled to be able to see my media. I've never had to do that before and I am NOT liking that as part of the update. Please fix ASAP!
#1 this app will not connect with your phone W/out location tracking enabled on the phone. #2 the app runs constantly and cant be disabled when not in use resulting in burning up your phones RAM, Battery & performance. #3 i haven't even used the app yet and somehow has used nearly half a gig of data in the the last 36 hr.?? #4 user security!! the app has permission to view anything on your phone.. and so does spyware and a long list of there virus The days of simple easy to use no BS apps are gone. My vote is gopro needs to get back to there original roots.. good luck gopro
Have to enable GPS to connect to the camera? Serious? Logging in via internet on the app prior to login in on the camera is just a useless step. If you are somewhere without internet you can't login into the camera that is right beside you! Create an option to transfer with a wire the vids from the camera to your phone. Not only via wifi. Create an option where to save the videos on your device when transferring wirelessly. Great camera but the software is not user oriented!
Requires login and online connection before any functions work. Pointless and useless bloat to a minimal app. I only need to connect to my camera and take photos. Not look my social media accounts. Any I don't always have internet access. F- design. Updated Jan 2018: Still utter garbage. Now demands location services to function, for more spyware. Complete nonsense.
