Preview not working

Works great for everything from power to settings, but the preview only worked for me once. Please update!




Platform: Mobile

Slow app/sync.

Its not real time connection. Windows GoPro app must be fluid like Android and iOS app! Update app please! Lag is to much!

Will not connect to the new hero 5 if you have not updated your camera after updating connect using an android or iPhone then use the same setting using your windows phone and it WILL connect. For some reason the app will not confirm connection to your gopro so that's why you have to use another device first.

Doesn't work for Hero5

I realize that the Hero5 is brand new but I would have hoped that GoPro knew that it was coming and made the appropriate updates.

Wish settings worked...

The app is pretty good, you can tell it to start recording or take a photo, you can transfer photos and videos to your phone (videos depend on type of quality transfer) there is small amount of lag with the camera preview (but because you are connecting via wifi... Non wired connection) and takes some really cool videos and photos... Only think I wish would work is the settings via using the app. Every time I go to settings for the gopro it says you lost connection but you don't... Otherwise it's ok. Solution set the settings via actual camera then take the photos via app.

Though you can control the camera remotely, the preview feature stopped working with the software update on my Windows phone. I'd gladly roll back to the previous version just to get the preview function back again.

Looping on the WiFi name change

I can't use the app at all. It goes into a loop constantly making me change the WiFi name over and over again. As soon as the phone connects to the GoPro, it automatically and constantly goes right to the change the WiFi name screen. I was only actually able to launch the preview part for 3 seconds, once! Just long enough to read the notification that preview is not supported. C'mon GoPro!! We pay way too much money for these things to not have them supported properly

Please update this app. It will initially connect to my Hero4 but controls don't work, preview is disabled and the interface freezes. The app eventually keeps redirecting me to change the Wifi settings....

Good app

It needs an update. Because, Well.. IT WONT let me preview my camera (Hero3+) and it won't let me access my camera files. Because I want to see my pictures and videos at least.
