Update: I just bought a Hero5 Black. GoPro seems fine taking my money for new cameras but can't throw out an update every once in awhile. Got an update but still not updated to fully support my camera (Hero3+ Black Edition)... What gives? Cool app, but compared to the Android version it could use an update to support the Hero3+ Black. Please GoPro, update this application on Windows Phone. Especially considering that those of us who prioritize imagery, choose iOS or Windows Phone. I'm not switching to an Android based device and I'm not carrying my iPad around. I let my friend connect to my Hero3+ Black edition and I noticed less delay, and more settings than I could get on my device. This app supports up to the Hero2 apparently? Give us some love. I'm going to share hella videos around Sacramento, CA with me on my bike and on my runs. I rep you, you rep Windows Phone! Thanks!

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.

According to GoPro's website "Windows Phone Hero 4 compatibility coming soon". How can you release a camera whose main feature is connectivity when that connectivity isn't fully supported?? Once again Windows Phone gets the short end of the stick. Very annoyed at this. Bought a brand new Hero 4 for 400$ and can't really use it much. Thanks GoPro.

Worked great last year, now I CAN NOT preview on my Lumia 920 anymore! It continually tries to restart the video preview, but stays in black screen. Update please!!! Glitchy for the last 6 months. Downloaded all the updates, tried everything from support.

Doesnt support Hero4. Due to this returned back my new GoPro Hero 4. Pure support...

Live preview and record works but going to settings always returns an unexpected error message. On most recent firmware, Nokia 928.

Im not sure why all the negative reviews on this app - unless theres been a substantial change recently - here's why: I recently purchased a hero 4 silver for an extended trip to South Africa documentary, roller derby coaching/training/ref reviewing, and cycling videos. Upon seeing that there was a mobile app, I was really excited about the options that opened - but the reviews, ugh. I have installed this app on 3 windows devices: A 1020 on 8.1 denim (for South Africa), a 1520, also 8.1 denim (for derby & cycling), and another 1520 that is running a beta of Windows 10 for mobile. All 3 devices installed, connected, connected and handled all images and remote functions - as advertised - FLAWLESSLY!!! So id like to let folks out there know that, unless I'm just **** lucky, this app works phenomenally well, and is a must have for the gopro owner. Sure, it looks like there were obviously issues with it in the past, but currently, this is working very well. NICE JOB GOPRO!!!

Does not work with GoPro 4 on Lumia 920. Can connect with wifi but app doesn't see camera. Disappointing. Will likely return the 4 if no solution is provided in the next few days.

This app worked great until the 2.0 release. DO NOT INSTALL THIS RELEASE!! It no longer supports the live preview while recording.
