  • Live preview does not work

    By RedeyeSPR
    I have been using GoPros for 8 years, and they still refuse to fix this app, which is maddening. The only reason I need it is for live preview, which just does not work on IOS devices. If you contact support, they will tell you to upgrade to the latest firmware for your camera and to download the latest version of the app. After doing both, you will find that the preview still does not work. I used to be able to go into the tools menu and the exit then the preview would show up, but that no longer works either. I had to actually go buy a cheap Android tablet to use only for this purpose. GoPro support will blame iOS for the problem and do nothing to resolve it. This had been ongoing for many years. Update to response - I have Hero 3 Silve cameras. I have had the same connection problems with 3 different iPhones and with every update in the past 8 years. It might connect okay for a month after an update, then it just stops connecting. I can still use the tools to format the card and change settings, but the preview never comes up.
  • Not as efficient as it used to be

    By KTSurfs
    I used to use the GoPro App all the time when I lived in Hawaii to capture all my surf and snorkeling and hiking pics. It was amazing because I could do everything wirelessly with my phone and never have to plug into a computer. It used to be fast and all my pics and videos downloaded fast. Nowadays, I don’t use it as often, but definitely in the last year I noticed that App has really downgraded in quality and efficiency when I’m downloading my pictures from my GoPro. My pictures do not all load. I can never see all of them and if they do appear in view, it’s blurry. I updated my GoPro with the latest firmware. My app is updated. Batteries on both devices are charged or plugged in. I don’t understand why the app pic download is so terrible now. I don’t understand why it has to use cellular data. I should be able to stay on my WiFi connection and still connect to my GoPro to get my picture and keep the speed of WiFi without having to use data. I connect to my Google Home and Chromecast with my phone and stay on my WiFi.

  • Recent Update

    By Music Cranker
    I dont like how media is stored on the app now with the recent update. I liked being able to save media to my phones “photos” album.
  • Impossible to reconnect to Hero 5 Black

    By Finao11
    No matter how many times you try, it’s impossible to get get your GoPro to reconnect to this app. Software, firmware, and app are up to date, but it still won’t work. Endless troubleshooting steps do nothing. The app is meant to do one thing well, and it can’t even do that.
  • Love GoPro except...

    By terakristineclow
    I love GoPro- except that whenever I save videos onto my phone from the app- they go into slow motion and do not load properly.
