Hero 7 black 5/5

Man I’m having fun with this camera got some awesome footage
GoPro Review 5/5
I purchased the Hero 5 a year ago for my daughter. Unfortunately, with school and other chores she has little time to work with the GoPro. However, I pulled it out this weekend to record an elevator speech for my graduate course. I was amazed at how easy and convenient it was to setup and record. The recording was crystal clear as well as the volume. I enjoyed working with the GoPro and plan additional projects in the future.
It’s really annoying that there isn’t a button that allows you to just download to camera roll it only gives option to share or download to weird random places in my phone
App crashes 2/5
When trying to trim a video on this app, the app crashes and closes out. Extremely annoying that I cannot simply trim videos.
I wish it was better. 1/5
Takes forever to do anything and crashes frequently.
GoPro hero 7 white 5/5
I am really enjoying my camera this my fifth video and I have took pictures during the day and night... we are in snow season right now no sun shining at this time I still like the look of my video and pictures very clear also voice command working on point . My daughter has the same camera and made lots of YouTube videos I recommend this camera and the app is very good and easy to use... once you get the hang of learning everything you will be happy 😃
WHEN & IF it connects... 2/5
Once I get the app to connect to my Hero 5 Black, the app is pretty decent. However that’s hit & miss. When I’m up on the mountain taking a break & want to see my shots on my phone of course I can’t seem to connect. When I have enough time & patience and reset all connections and forget the WiFi and Bluetooth on my phone I can get it to connect. Next day, can’t seem to connect again, keeps saying connect to your device’s wifi...even though I am connected to my device’s wifi - extremely frustrating!
I’ll continue to try support and may update if things change.
Media won’t load 2/5
Overall the app is pretty good. Unfortunately, the most important feature doesn’t work. It knows that there’s an SD card in the app settings and that there are some pics and videos on it. When I go to view the media, it appears there’s nothing there. Tried rebooting camera with no success.
Also disappointed that there is no support for Apple Watch but I could live without that if the media view was working.
iPhone 8+, iOS 12, 200+GB free memory, Hero 3.
Absolutely useless. 1/5
By Border Town Boy
As far as I can tell, the stupidest app I have ever seen! Don’t bother.
Very impressed 5/5
Just got to go pro black seven have not used it a lot but been very impressed with everything taking it on when her trip going to see how good it does and freezing snow and water
the app crashes so much!! 1/5
i am getting super frustrated at this app. i’m trying to download all the pictures and videos off my go pro to my phone through the app and the app continues to crash. i’ve updates my phone and reseted it in hopes of it working and it continues to crash.
Apple Watch no longer supported 1/5
I was quite disappointed I just purchased the hero 7 black after having the hero 5 black with karama which I enjoyed. I’m very disappointed that they no longer support the Apple Watch this was a very cool option!! Please bring it back!!
BEST camera I’ve ever had for pics, but keep it simple. Pushes too many media options to “post,” those should be customizable.
Go pro plus offered a free trial but charged me anyways. Then I can’t log onto go pro plus. What a scam!
No live preview iOS 12 1/5
Everything else seems to work but the live preview. To me it’s no good without the live stream. It just keeps giving the spinning loading black screen. Please fix this issue.
Sd card reader frustration 1/5
By B-Rat 406
I originally bought a GoPro branded sd card reader with the idea that spending a bit more money for the brand name was a good idea and I’ve had nothing but trouble with it. It will not upload the pictures to my phone, nor will it even register that something is plugged in. Please fix this.
This App is FREAKING amazing!!! Not only can you download the video you recorded straight to your phone, you can ALSO upload to your social media right there on the spot! No more having to take the SD card out, connect it to your computer, download, and then finally upload! Now it’s literally RECORD, Label, Download or Upload! THREE Steps and you’re done!!!
Don’t buy a Gopro! 1/5
I have had problems with this horrible app since I purchased my Gopro Hero Session 5 a little over two years ago. Thought by now you guys would have worked out. I guess your customers information is more important than your customers. So funny that Gopro named their drone Karma 😂. You’re Karma is arriving. I am done with Gopro!
Please reinstate Apple Watch support 1/5
Apple Watch support was perfect until it was inexplicably removed from app. I believe they removed functionality in order to sell more go pro remote products.
Please fix. Apple Watch integration was only reason I used your cameras. Cannot function without it. Screen isn’t visible in my mounting device. Carrying another remote isn’t feasible. Please fix App. Reinstate Apple Watch support.
App should not show ads as notifications 1/5
An app really should not display ads as push notifications. I opt in to app notifications for app functionality, not to subscribe to GoPro promos whenever you’d like to send one to my phone.
Honestly 90% of the time this app is frozen... and it’s not like it’s my phone I have a brand new iPhone X and a hero 7white it should work a lot better than this, extremely disappointed
Amazing app super easy to use and great for small creators 5/5
This app is absolute trash. Try to edit a clip of a long video you think you could just clip it out. Nope, won’t work. What a piece of junk.
Useless for Fusion 2/5
App keeps closing while trying to edit or download video. Losses WiFi connections. Even when working, app function for the Fusion is very limited. GoPro has the reputation for horrible software. This is no different. I’m rooting for GoPro, but the fusion is more frustrating than cool.
GoPro App Software is Awful 1/5
By West Indies Trading
GoPro app and import of data from camera to mobile device might be the worst software ever. The camera is durable and takes great quality images but it’s worthless to get the images and video from the camera to an iPhone via the app.
Lost compatibility with Apple Watch 1/5
By Arkansas timber hunter
Disappointed the Apple Watch portion of this app stopped working. And using the app freezes my GoPro
Everything Awesome... 5/5
Hyper smooth is life!!! Too much fun with this camera!
Great app! Makes editing and sharing easy. 4/5
This is great app that is well done and easy to use.
There is some room for UI improvement... for example when you download it shows you file names but then when you go back to the preview window you can’t see them so it can be hard to keep track of which ones you have downloaded or not.
I wish there was an easy and reliable way to download all videos to my phone. Right now it requires touching my phone every minutes for 15-20 mins while it downloads and converts files.
Very basic software! Disappointed! 1/5
I love the GoPro camera but the software to view and edit is horrible! It is not user friendly, extremely slow on my latest iPhone X and iPad. Frustrating to clip videos, extract photos from videos, and even view. I also tried on laptop but my video editing suffered reduction in image quality!! Why do I buy an HD camera so that the software makes it SD!?!? Seriously get your act together GoPro! I’m looking into other camera options instead of buying a new GoPro given these issues.
Download ease 1/5
By GoPro Master/Beast
It takes a while to load in your footages
Easy and useful 5/5
By tahoetone life
The GoPro app is very useful when setting up and following shots.
It makes sharing content simple as well.
Great way to simplify video processing for the average person.
The app is Garbage! 1/5
The app lags and freezes constantly, it’s frustrating when you’re trying to get snap shots from a video or a clip from the video. I suggest to use a PC.
I. Am. Blown. Away. 5/5
I have no idea where to start. I recently had my GoPro Hero 3 die and I have tried everything I know to do to fix it but it would not film videos right. Granted this GoPro is over 6 years and I filmed tons and tons and tons with it. It was my main camera for everything so I took it everywhere. I did not want to get a new GoPro because I was afraid that it might not work or fail at an extraordinary moment that I could never again see. I have bought a GP Hero 7 Black and I can seriously not say enough. It has blown me away as a camera all the things that they have improved, fixed, made easier, more fun, interactive etc. The stabilization is amazing and I love it. It is one of those things you don’t know about until you have it then you always want to have it. The software (Quik, GoPro software, Splice, Quik Desktop, GoPro app for iPhone) is fast and able to keep up with me. The joining (through the app by joining the wifi feature on the new GoPro through the app) is truly awesome and helpful. Another one of those things you have and you don’t know you have it but then you don’t want to leave it. GoPro is really one of my favorite new companies.
Go Pro Plus + Time-Elapse 2/5
When I bought Go Pro Plus, it won't say I bought it and won't let me access the abilities. In my subscriptions. It says I have subbed to it. Also, with time-elapses, it will lag a lot and not load properly.
Theee best so far 5/5
Love this go pro
Giving me lots of problems 2/5
By Mr. Plush
This app is giving me lots of problems. It keeps failing to download even short videos, telling me i need more space on my phone when i deleted more than half of my phone’s pictures and sometimes won’t even connect entirely. Several times I have resorted to deleting the app and redownloading. This app makes one of the best features of the GoPro nearly useless. Please fix these problems.
Takes too long to share and download clips
Hero 7 5/5
It’s a little bit complicated to figure out but I’m getting it
The GoPro App is a Joke... 1/5
By Gothic Reliquia
I normally don’t write reviews for the apps that I download, but I thought I would make a special exception for this one...
The connectivity to my phone using WiFi isn’t reason for the one star... it is the fact that the preview signal from the camera to the app (so you can preview the picture before you record), almost never comes through. I have to disconnect the camera from my phone and then reconnect it. AND THEN... if by some chance you do get a preview picture of what the camera is seeing, the preview is so “laggy” that the preview appears to be frozen... then after almost five minutes of watching a frozen picture, the video speeds up to catch up with the current view and starts the lag all over again making it useless. I could understand if the camera and phone were more than 10+ feet apart in distance, but then the app struggles with the preview video from only two feet away, the app is pointless to use. If any problems with connectivity would have happened, I would’ve guess that it would have been from the GoPro camera to the phone... not with the GoPro camera to the GoPro app.
I was so confused. 5/5
By skipper 123
Used the “chat” with GoPro and he walked me through the pairing with my phone app. Thank you for the great service.
Does not work on my I watch 2/5
I find this app hard to use and it does not work with my iwatch like it is suppose too
Cloud is SLOW 3/5
I love the concept of this service but when I download to the cloud (35 hrs of video offered), I experience serious issues. It stalls out or takes FOREVER. Wish it worked better.
Good app, works as it’s expected! 5/5
I just got a GoPro session this past fall. Being able to control it in a more user friendly and easy way makes all the difference with my two-button operation. I’ve only noticed some slight freezing or delayed response when trying to download larger files. All in all, a good app that does a wonderful job.
My hero 7 go pro 4/5
By The contra
Se calienta mucho y no puedo mirar los videos por que no los convierte a mp2
Sharing to YouTube needs improvement 2/5
By Hoosier Sti
I can share videos to YouTube from the YouTube app itself in less than two minutes but this GoPro app took 20 minutes and even then the video did not load to YouTube. Also on the GoPro app does not share videos with the Apple photo app easily either.
Best filming app ever made
Stole money from me. 1/5
By fuk gopro
Watch out, this app auto signed me up with their GoPro plus account, charging me monthly for a service that I never authorized, or wanted. I have spoke with GoPro about this and they were rude and unhelpful.
