These things are worth $200 at best 1/5
Having issues with software compatibilities and video quality during playback
GoPro app 2/5
I love the idea of the GoPro app but when it comes to making YouTube videos the GoPro app does not download the videos fast enough.
Won’t work 1/5
I use to like this app a lot. Lately I won’t let me watch my videos or download them. Seems like it’s a common occurrence. Very disappointed
App is crap, camera firmware is crap, customer service is crap 1/5
Login required. 2 issues connecting EVERY TIME I try to use it. Need to resync it every time. A huge hassle and now I’ve the GoPro listed about 8 times in the list of Bluetooth devices, all listed with the same name
Loud annoying beeps with turning on and off, takes a long time for it to turn off, beeps sporadically while recording
Inane decision to drop price of GoPro hero 6 by $100 and not offer customers who purchased it for full price ANYTHING AT ALL.
No customer service. No email contact, chat function says reps are “too busy” to even put me in the queue. Do not waste your money. Re-selling on Craigslist at a massive loss.
Not able to stop recording 1/5
Beside the requirement for a login, which is terrible, my biggest issue with the app is, that I am able to start a recording from the app. But I’m not able to stop the recording because of a loading spinner. For me a real no-go when mounting the camera on a helmet.
Stop making me sign in n 1/5
This is stupid. I was out on a hike and didn’t have reception. Couldn’t use the app at all. Worthless.
No funciona 1/5
La última versión no funciona en iPhone 8
Basically useless. 1/5
I’m connected to my hero 3 via WiFi and I can barely load clips. This app is a great idea... if it worked. At all.
Overcapture doesn’t work on iPhone X 1/5
The app has been okay as a means to load pictures and videos from your GoPro device. I bought a Fusion which is essentially useless without editing software and the most recent update to this app was supposed to add that functionality.
Unfortunately the app is buggy. To use overcapture the phone needs to be in landscape mode and the app simply doesn’t recognize that the phone is landscape. This you get a notification to turn your phone which won’t go away no matter what you do.
With a fix I may rate the app higher but currently does not work.
Video download 2/5
Downloading video can be problematic with large video. Even when your have a high memory phone. You can try to cut the video , but 30 second max is way way to short.
Hero 5 Session 5/5
Cannot believe how small this camera is. I have it set on 4K video and it is very clear. I am very happy with this camera. Bought it for our Vegas trip this summer. I also purchased a Samsung EVO Plus 128GB and it gives me over four hours of video time. Cannot wait to use it to record on the Stratosphere Tower in Vegas.
This app is very slow...
Take it off😭😭😭😭 1/5
By ih8 this
Seriously I have to sign in my email always says its wrong 😡😡😡😡😭😭😭😭😭
I will never create a data mining account just to remote use my camera. 1/5
The audacity and arrogance of GoPro is astonishing. They force you to create an account or the app no longer functions. GoPro can go straight to hell. There are other cams on the market nowadays. Hey GoPro, it's none of your effing business how and where I use my cameras.
Update 2018: require login = 1 star
Great but just a few bugs... 4/5
So, yes this is probably great. Although, there is a bug with my GoPro. Whenever I connect it, it says,”There seems to be an issue connecting with the GoPro”. I checked my GoPro and it says “Capture App (status) Connected”. So, there should be nothing wrong with the connection. I tried restarting the connection with the GoPro but it didn’t work. Still the same. Please fix it.
Doesn’t have every GoPro 1/5
My GoPro doesn’t hook up
Hate the login! 1/5
By Too many ads!
I can’t remember the number of times I want to use my GoPro but couldn’t due to the login requirement that requires internet access to use! Most likely would never buy another GoPro product ever again! They screwed up with the Karma drone and now this.. such a shame that they don’t care about their user base.
Great App!!! 5/5
Love this app!
By ANDREYKA'S GARAGE
Kinda annoying but it works
How am I supposed to log in when I don’t have signal?
JUST WON’T WORK 1/5
Pairing takes ages and still just wont pair
Sign in required?? 1/5
Now I know why I haven’t upgraded my GoPro for years and hardly use it anymore. After seeing the reviews I decided to open up the app, sign in before proceeding a requirement?? My Canon D70 camera app don’t require that! Seems some are trying to grow their customer base rather than offend them!!
Black screen since latest firmware update 1/5
Black screen of death since last firmware update. Why?!
I just read a review from a pilot that basically took the words right out of my mouth. I no longer wonder why GoPro is a failing company with the most myopic tech vision. I no longer wonder why the CEO’s salary was reduced to $1 on January 7th. I no longer wonder why the stock dropped over 30% on the same day. No wonder why the company has considered putting a “FOR SALE” sign in their front yard. Please end the stupid login requirement.
The Hero 3/5
I can’t connect to any GoPro because I have the hero and it doesn’t have it in there I tried the hero+ but that doesn’t work either
Please put the hero on there
I love it 5/5
Will not connect to ipad 1/5
I get everything setup through the app, and it shows that it is connected, but the app says it isnt. Makes my product only usable through my android phone.
Overcapture Rocks 5/5
Just tried out the new feature with Fusion and am blown away at how easy it is. Pair, record, Overcapture and share. GoPro definitely improved this app
By A boy who reads
The app overall is great. I love viewing my captures footage on mobile devices. The resolution of the videos is incredible, but the login page is a big nuisance. App would be 5 stars with no login
If I could only give "0" stars 1/5
Complete trash. This app used to run well, now it is slow, glitchy, continually kicks off and asks for a login, and basically is a steaming pile of trash. Beyond annoyed that I can't even download the video I want. Took nearly 4 minutes to download a single photo.
Awful app. 1/5
So much has changed since I last used a GoPro and for the worst. Read the one star reviews and how awful the forced sign in is because it’s all about true. Also, look into how awful their stocks are and their failed drone business to see how GoPro is completely clueless. Reading the reviews to the app and there still isn’t a fix just goes to show why me and many others went to other brands. How are them stocks doing?
Pilot Uses 1/5
Can somebody please contact me on how I would use the app while flying....and cannot log into the internet. Kind of places a cog in the works when I can not operate multiple cameras seamlessly and quickly.
It's fantastic! 5/5
I own Hero Black 5 and Session 5,
And this software makes it so much fun and easy to edit different shots from different angles.....
Love it ,it simply great👍
What a Pain 1/5
GoPro is still more interested in forcing me to log in than they are in helping me use my cameras. They are probably going to go out of business rather than going back to giving their customers what they want. A real shame. GoPro used to be a great company. They must have hired too many business school graduates.
21,000 Five Star ratings? No way that is legit. All the reviews that say anything that doesn't sound like ad copy give it a very low score.
One star for required login 1/5
Just plain dumb that they force users to sign up. It’s a shame that such a good camera is tied to annoying app.
Do not update 1/5
OWNERS of IPAD 2 Beware do not update the GoPro app or you will lose the ability to connect your camera!! The updated app needs IOS 10.0 or greater.
By Nate 58 :)
Sometimes it glitches and sometimes it wont let me download certain videos. Even if they are only a few seconds and i have the storage. Plus it's a little slow.
Eliminate login for remote control!!!! 1/5
Muy mala 1/5
Siempre pide el login y un lío para conectarse para ver sus propias fotos, es confusa, no es lo que esperaba de gopro.
Slow, login, old cameras etc 1/5
This app is pretty slow....I think they forgot to assist the GoPro 3, of course...they want you to buy the new ones !!!. But that’s not my problem cause if i bought GoPro camera, they should assist me or everyone who has their products !!. Well the apps is extremely slow, I can’t see de “preview”, it takes so much time that I need to change the battery!!. And Login !????? Whattafuuu !?? Why do you do that !??? They think the whole planet has internet connection !! Even Antártica....come on guys!!! We don’t need to login...if you want to share your stuff, at least the media will be in your phone !!, one star, one star, one star and the ratings still 4,7 of 5 !??? They are manipulating this !!!. Miss the old “era” of GoPro...when things work normally !!!. FIX THAT APP !!!!! It’s your OBLIGATION
Great app! 5/5
By Serhii Aksiutin
The Pilot must buy a remote! Never mind him.
Hero 4 Silver 3/5
Have been used for years now since Hero 4 came to the market but wonder why GoPro don’t make more update for improvements to share like “Live-streaming”
To Facebook, YouTube etc.
GoPro is leaving behind technology!
(I’ve been share Live-streaming with drone / Mevo & Smartphones) but not GoPro.
Needs improvements on connectivity. Videos take forever to load.
User friendly. Instinctively easy to use 5/5
The best app for sending and sharing videos quickly and easy
The log in requirement is not simple 1/5
When your on a dive boat somewhere or airplane you can’t just log in to make this work. Why does GoPro need to monitor everything we do?
Everything we’ve needed 5/5
For our Shop Charlotte Alternative Sports in Charlotte NC, we bought 3 GoPros to help record and produce clips of all of our sponsored players and teams. Our BMX Street Team loves their Session, our Paintball and Airsoft teams love their Sessions and our Skate Team loves theirs. So easy to operate, edit and share. Thank you GoPro.
SLOW AF 1/5
Live view is so slow, can’t get my videos from the camera, this app needs a serious big fix
By mario camilli
Log in REQUIRED? 1/5
Really GoPro? Missed a great shot because you forced me to log in to an app I’ve used on the same phone with the same camera! Deal breaker for me!
Recent update loses WiFi connectivity constantly, requiring me to manually reconnect to the camera. What a joke! Amateur hour - you should fire your beta testers. It’s called regression testing!
When it comes time to get a new camera, I will NOT be getting a GoPro.
