Forced Log-in? Are you kidding? 1/5
Forcing us to create an account and then log-in just to use the app. Dumb.
Randomly requires log-in which requires internet connection. If no internet then log-in is impossible and app unuseable. What were you thinking, GoPro?
Time for me to switch to one of your competitors.
does not work 1/5
By M n. n. n
keeps losing connection or freezes
It has a bug where it takes multiple photos 3/5
By SL Manula
I tried to shoot using my phone app and sometimes when I tap the shoot button(on photo mode), it keeps on shooting till have to forcefully shutdown the cam to stop. Please fix it
Cannot download 12min videos 1/5
Every time I try to download a video it crashes or just restarts. Please fix this!
Fixed login issue 4/5
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 1/5
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. 1/5
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 1/5
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.
NOT USER FRIENDLY 1/5
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.
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 2/5
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
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 1/5
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? 1/5
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.
Terrible App even more terrible customer service 1/5
By Lulu house
This app is absolutely terrible. I am able to see my pictures on the camera. Also when I connect the camera to my computer by USB. However, when I try to download using the app, it only downloads about half of my photos. I have tried all the suggestions on the GoPro website, still not resolved. I even tried calling GoPro customer service a couple times, I waited on the phone on average about 30 minutes and no one answer the call. This product is way to expensive for the crappy service that is being provided.
Now requires a login to use the app! Maddening!! How about making that optional!!
Great app 5/5
Love the app
GoPro Karma 4/5
Everything is good.
Only things I would like is more flight time and follow me option. Other than that, this is a great drone and a great camera for the cost.
I'm a child 5/5
By Gma Barb
I'm 12 and I love GoPro I've had a GoPro since I was 10 I love to watch my progression over the years of riding dirtbikes and quad from a 90 scrambler to a YZ 450 and a suzaki 50 to a YZ 85 it's fun to watch a few years ago because I can see how slow I used to go compared to now. And my favorite part about it is the GoPro saves storage from old as cards
Could use a few more options without bloating the app 4/5
Loose one start because the connections are not solid. You have to reset Wi-Fi and Bluetooth quite often.
Get QA 1/5
So many crashes especially when card is full!
Remove login requirement 1/5
Terrible idea, can't use app without cell reception now.
Awesome features! 5/5
Love this app. Took me a bit to get it going. User error of course. Once it was up it's amazing! I don't have to load them to my PC anymore I can get the videos and pics right on my phone. I can control my camera from my phone. I absolutely love it! No complaints at all!
Thank you GoPro! 5/5
Thank you for making it easy for us to edit and share our videos...
Newb user 5/5
1080p or it's hopeless.
Love action cameras!! 5/5
Best camera in the world
Works Great 4/5
The app does everything I need it to do. And all the other things I needed I found on the other GoPro apps. Maybe move them all into one app.
Great and simple to use app!!!! Just love it.
SO AWESOME 😎 5/5
I just went to a lake and it was awesome! It's so cool that I can control my entire GoPro from just my phone!
Upload on the cloud while you charge your battery 5/5
I love this app, because you can upload as you charge. At this point I see it worth the $4.99 a month to use this feature. With a busy schedule I can hardly find time to pull the mice SD card and put them onto a PC.
I absolutely love using this app and all other GoPro apps. I am a huge goproer between scuba diving, cycling, and hiking water falls. This app makes it super easy to see my videos and allow me to begin thinking of how to edit them!
Love the live feed. 5/5
Love the live feed, got the hero session
New user 4/5
Everything has been fairly seamless so far. Still getting used to connecting quickly. Hopefully they get a fix for that. I have read many reviews of people complaining but I think I get it. It has to be for privacy reasons.
Capturing Memories 5/5
By Dee Hammer
Life is too short to let it go bye, having two boys is an adventure it self. I'm glad I can capture all our fun moments when we go out fishing/hunting or just to the beach!
Gopro app is failing me! 1/5
What the heck is going on with the gopro app. Both my iphone 7s and ipad 2 is getting pixelated and frame freezing. On top of that I had to reset the connection several times because I could not connect before the gopro timed out and shutdown. Is it your software or the latest firmware release thats the issue. I have both hero 5 session and hero 3+ black with the same issue. I suspect app is the problem.
Love it tells you what to download to edit n use my phone to change settings
Go pro 5/5
Like the app is easy to work with my GoPro 5 now🙌
By Pearly Sandra
Love this app for my Go Pro videos- just wish there was more flexibility to set where I want to edit my videos. This app only lets you choose a 15 second or 30 second segment -- please enable more flexibility! Thank you!
Love it 5/5
I use it as a dash cam when I drive and I have caught some great animal shots with it. Using it skiing with the chest harness made some great videos and sharing it on my phone thru the app was easy.
Great product- equally decent app 4/5
Love using the app and I think it works cohesively and intuitively for the most part!
👍 great 4/5
I love my new session GoPro and I think it's awesome how you can edit videos! The login problem does not happen to me. Great app but not worth it if you don't have a GoPro though. I think you should be able to still watch other people's videos and see pics.
No good 1/5
Cannot connect, at all seems like the big brother feature is more important than the function 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
GoPro Hero 5 Black is the very first gaged I LOVE! 5/5
All of my computers are outdated and not being tech savvy, I had to try a mobile version. I did register on my desktop, though. I had no problems signing in and linking the camera to the phone. I first, had to look at a few videos on YouTube to get me started. Afterwards, I just followed prompts in the camera and in the app. I love being able to get my videos and extract photos from the videos using my phone. Thank you Thank you Thank you for making it so easy even for people with no technical skills!!!
For me it's not for play it's for work 5/5
Are used to go processions of the original series for work as alternate cameras to give me different wide-angle views as opposed to my ENG camera that I use for my photojournalism work. I am very satisfied with the quality of imagery and video and sound that I get from these cameras. All I need is a way to stabilize the images a little more in a smaller format and a longer stick to put it on for higher angle views to emulate a drone or Gimbel style of shooting.
GOPRO IS TRASH 1/5
Everything about GoPro is trash now. When I first got mine I rarely had problems but now every time I use it I just think it's a piece of *%+=# . camera freezes after one minute of recording . Can't pull any videos from it using any of their apps. App freezes half the time. If anyone is in the market for a GoPro shoot me a message
Good app, but could be better 3/5
By Teh Hop Rocket
I have used this app for most of my time with a gopro. Before I got a laptop, the easiest way to get access to my shots was through this app. The login issue needs to be resolved. There should be no reason to require a login if your only pupose for using the app is to download and manage media. The login just makes the whole thing a slower and more annoying process.
GoPro App Review 4/5
So much better since I updated. The app could have better connectivity process but doesn't seem to bother me. So far it's working ok.
Great just great app for GoPro
Top Notch 5/5
THIS IS SO GOOD😆 5/5
This app is amazing!!!!! I love it because it helps me see what I'm filming. It's the best photography app that I have on my phone!!!💗
