App Reviews

  • Cannot download 12min videos

    By Transamkid355
    Every time I try to download a video it crashes or just restarts. Please fix this!
  • Fixed login issue

    By HamiltonDrums
    Thank you for fixing the Facebook login issue!! With this fix, I can finally use my GoPro without having to login every single time I locked my phone. I would give 5 stars but the app still randomly becomes unresponsive while recording. I'd love to see if this gets resolved
  • Camera name

    By pgacccbass
    The Hero4 was connected to this app. But now, the camera fails to connect using the name I used. The iPad Bluetooth connection shows a connection "GoPro 5713". This app doesn't allow spaces in the camera name. So, the old name is gone, the camera provides the 5713 name and this app doesn't allow that name. No way to use this app.
  • This app is crap for iPad.

    By Amidnktst
    This app is complete crap can't even get my GoPro to connect to my iPad because the app keeps saying error. But my GoPro connects to my other devices fine. Please fix this crap app will update the review.
  • Don't update if you have the 2016 version

    By Control56
    This deserves a zero rating. The requirement that you need an Internet connection to use the program is a killer for me. And, for me the program is not so easy to use. (I'm a geek, dealt with command lines for years) It's also irksome to use with an iPad because, when you turn off the camera's WiFi (in order to extend battery run time), the pad will jump to another access point. If you then want to go back to the camera, you must deal with the iPad's WiFi configuration again. This gets stale after a while. In fairness this is more of an iPad issue than a camera issue, but it is irksome just the same. It would be handy if the App and the camera could communicate through a regular access point. Overall, not fun.

    GoPro needs to figure out a way to easily capture photos or shorter clips from videos, why do we need to pay a monthly subscription for this app, as well as have the Quik app? All I am trying to do is capture short clips of videos or grab a picture, but it is so tedious going back and forth from the GoPro wifi to the home wifi, I am not trying to make "professional" videos or movies, only trying to grab things I would like to share on social media. It's very frustrating having a $450 camera that you cannot sync and actually use from your mobile device to share moments or short videos. This should all be combined in one, easy to use app. I am pretty tech savvy, and I just spent an hour on the phone with GoPro support trying to figure this out--to no avail.
  • Frustrating

    Every time I try to trim a video, the GoPro Capture app won't even make it to the preview screen before telling me it was "unable to share clip - we recommend you turn your camera off then back on again." I've reset everything I can think of, updated, re-downloaded the app, un-paired and re-paired, and still no luck.
  • Works Well.....Sometimes

    By RMDCO
    You have to re-sign in every time you open the app App does not remember your information App only boots 50% of the time Cannot connect to the camera if out of cell coverage, drives app into a loop Only sees the camera 50% of the time, requires restarting the camera and the app Session is designed to be used with the app, app failures make the camera marginally useable Need: No sign on required Remember all information, or biometric sign on Better camera to phone connectivity, current algorithms are not functioning Better app boot Better app stability I tend to agree with other users, if the app cannot be fixed then other cameras may be a better choice
  • Can't control camera anymore without them tracking

    By IT Manager
    They updated the app and now force you to create an account so they can track you. There is no option to opt out. When I bought the camera this was not in the agreement.
  • Logging in?

    By cutmeacheckformyinfo
    Was installing the app, saw the reviews and then immediately deleted due to having to log in. GoPro really is digging low to sell people's information. I'm thinking of taking this thing back and going with Sony. Pure unethical trash.
