About this app

This is an unofficial app compatible with GoPro™ Labs enabled cameras. With the launch of GoPro Labs, users can control their GoPro cameras via custom QR Codes. This utility makes that easier on a mobile device, particularly for those without reliable internet connections. QR Codes generated support:
1) setting video, photo and time-
lapse camera modes on the black edition HERO7, HERO8, HERO9, HERO10/Bones, HERO11/Mini and MAX cameras.
2) setting up custom Protune configurations
3) setting camera preferences
4) triggering time delay starts, including sunset and sunrise
5) IMU, audio level, speed or motion triggered video captures
6) support for multiple QR Codes.
7) saving QR Codes for sharing

To successfully use this app, users must first upgrade their GoPro camera to be using GoPro Labs firmware.

Nice app - very convenient. I'm having a problem when I try to save a QR code, I get an error message at the bottom "QR Sticker save Failed!". I checked my app permissions, and Storage is enabled, so I don't know what else would be causing that. I assume the save writes the QR code to my photo gallery. A nice feature would be the ability to maintain a list of saved codes, rather than having to swipe left/right to navigate between codes. This may be a GoPro labs issue, but I don't see an option (either in the app or in the labs online list) to set the camera front/back selection on the MAX.

Thank you for your report, that is happening on some devices, and I need to determine why. I will be looking into it. Update: 1.3.1 has improved this by writing to application data if the gallery save fails. These images are retrievable with tools like Google Files. I believe this issue will improve on Android 11.

Revised review: it has been sorted out and my app now works great. The new features are great, and the developers reached out to promptly help resolve the issue. So prior review is now null-Worked great till the most recent update. Now it just stays on a white screen. I hope this is resolved soon. I use QRControl for my GoPros for a skate competition I do every year. My dry run of tech is this month and now I don't have the app to help with settings. Very disappointing. 😔

Erase the apps storage and caches, and it will start fresh and work correctly. If that doesn’t help, please contact me at qrcontrol@miscdata.com.

be careful. the app lets you choose settings that are not available on the camera. like certain combinations of settings. make sure the combination of settings is actually an option of the camera.

With great power ... The app was initially created when 4Kp60 was the maximum, yet QR Codes for 4Kp120 existed, to the app is somewhat future proof. But yes, you do needed to know your camera.

What's new

- Added Start Now (rather than the user added 1 to the seconds field)
- Added End after Seconds, not only minutes or hours.
- Added Owner Information under the Name tab (the most popular feature now easy with QRControl)
