Update works with wifi much better! I like the latest update, the wifi management works really well. It'll keep me connected to home wifi until I want to connect to my GP and only then will it switch, then leaving the app switches back to my home wifi. Excellent! Edit: still major failure with giving me a preview about 7/10 times.
Had to set up an account only to spend an hour trying to get the app to connect, without success. S7 Edge/5 Session v01:20fw WiFi connects fine but the app won't. EDIT: I uninstalled and reinstalled the app and now it's working :D I can finally access settings!
Sign in, no thanks. How did you decide that it was smart to require singing in to use this? This needs to be friendly to professional video makers and amateurs alike. Non of which want to have another account to manage. We just want to use the app and that's it. No you will not get me to make an account, piss off.
Connected WiFi When you connect to the camera, it makes the Android system believe it's connected to wifi. So for instance if you have like Google play store to update apps on wifi only this app tricks the system to believe it's on wifi. Therefore, it's causing data usage. Also, my phone downloaded a system update of 700+ MB because it thought it was on wifi.
Wtf Why, why why do I need to have an account to just use the app? I got tired of this account $*** with the desktop so installed an older version of the program, now they have it on the app??? Why gopro? Are you trying even harder to push away customers? Do you really need to know what my settings are? Do you really need to know where I'm filming? Why is it so important to you to invade the privacy of your customers on every front? This is a joke and I'm ditching your tech and camera for cheaper systems.
Terrible update! My phone automatically updated to this version of the app and it forcefully made me register my email and verify just to use it. I was already setup for the shot and had to pause production just for that. And then after jumping through hoops for that, the live view is completely black. Had to power down the camera and boot it back up for live view to kick back on. On top of that it goes completely black just after seconds later. This app was perfect before why break it?
This version includes several bug fixes and improvements:
+ Squashed several bugs causing the app to crash when creating an account or turning on notifications.
+ Updated the Settings section to make it easier to navigate.
+ Improved translation for localized versions of the app.
+ Several other minor fixes and improvements.
