Does not rotate on iPad.
by Dr. Notadoctor on 2020/10/26 05:32
If this could rotate I would give it five stars, but the app does not rotate on iPad which is frustrating when I am using the iPad attached to a keyboard. The auto upload feature works well as does controlling the go Pro showing a live preview photo, when I put my GoPro on a selfie stick and use the iPad to look at the preview, I can look around corners like a periscope. I also really wish that I could use the Apple Watch to control the go Pro. Finally the app crashes occasionally, not a ton but enough for me to feel that a three star review is more appropriate than four. I’m using a new iPad Pro so I’m pretty sure it is the app and not my device causing the problem.
Great!!

Poor support
by Owlguard on 2020/10/25 17:36
Read all the people who can’t get the files downloaded on PC. Try to get tech support, laughable. Spend hours trying to save your precious videos. I would have chuck the camera at them if they were here.

Impossible to upload videos
by lemonboard on 2020/10/23 15:03
I'm as tech-savvy as they come, I've gone through all of the steps with success (pairing, connecting, etc), and am able to fully control my GoPro from the iPhone app. Both my GoPro and iPhone are running the most up-to-date versions, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app multiple times. Yet no matter what I do, no matter how hard I try or how long I decide to wait, it is IMPOSSIBLE to upload a video from the camera to your iPhone. Absolutely, 100% impossible. Photos sync almost immediately and with no issues (which assures me that the connection is definitely there). But after multiple days of tinkering around with videos, I now know that it will never happen for me. When I go to upload a video, it starts and looks promising. But after a few minutes, it all but comes to a halt, and the "calculating" time shoots through the roof. I'm trying right now to upload a lousy 7-minute video, and it's stuck at probably 10% and is claiming to take hours yet. Last night — while on freaking airplane mode, with both the camera and iPhone plugged in and successfully paired — I thought that it would HAVE to finish uploading if I were to let it go all night long. Nope! It actually LOST progress! How is that even possible?! That's a single 7-minute short video with nothing holding it back, syncing over 7 HOURS, and it's not even remotely close to being done yet. It's at probably 5% as I type this, seven HOURS later. Why does this app even exist?? If you can't upload your videos (even short ones), why develop an app at all? And after reading about a thousand company responses to this issue throughout the internet, I'm sure they'll just tell me to turn my phone on and off as if that ever actually does anything. Or to re-download the app yet again. Dear GoPro, just update your app with the millions of dollars you are worth so that people can enjoy it without hassle. This is simple stuff here. Because as of right now, my GoPro is worthless to me. If I can't actually access and edit my videos, why use the camera at all?
Mixing audio
by Herpessomych on 2020/10/22 16:43
New app update it looks like the mixing or muting video audio has disappeared? I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Disappointing
Can we use Apple Watch control our GoPro?
by RbBtSn0w on 2020/10/22 12:13
I think, nope.
Complicated
by noradio fool on 2020/10/22 03:18
Hard to figure out, never owned one before the hero 7. Shutting off and turning on a bit of a pain. I have figured it out. Use it for hunting. Works well when you know what your doing. Came with no instructions. All you tube.

Am I Crazy?
by Farts of Mothra on 2020/10/21 18:18
Or is it 2020 and this app only mainly works in portrait mode? I didn’t even know that was possible. I’m even more baffled why an app centered around video would not assume that landscape is the primary orientation most will want to use this app on an iPad. I have so many question! Fix this, please. Like 7 years ago. UPDATE TO DEVELOPER’S RESPONSE: Okay, so landscape only in viewing mode. That makes perfect sense... for a phone. Not a tablet with a screen that goes up to 12.9” and is possibly docked to a keyboard to use with a mouse/trackpad when doing any video editing.
Very slow to download
by 1237455626 on 2020/10/21 16:54
I am having a problem importing a video to the desktop
Please add landscape support
by Ianturk on 2020/10/21 00:57
My iPad is often docked in a landscape orientation when I’m not holding it, so it would be great to see landscape support in all views. Otherwise the app makes it easy to control my GoPro, sync media, and edit clips. Edit: Lowered to 2 stars since a whole new GoPro has been released and the app still doesn’t support landscape
Slow and crashing
by edmarhockey on 2020/10/20 15:58
I’ve got GoPro 8 black. So far app and camera are not friendly. App crashes often and I have to re-start... not sure if I’ll keep it. May need to return to the store unless things get better...

Garbage
by k41z0ku on 2020/10/19 23:55
The app has corrupted dozens of my videos due to its failure to upload anything to the cloud, don’t waste your time, offload onto a pc
Ok app
by brogill247 on 2020/10/19 23:15
The app is ok. It’s not super user friendly so it takes a lot of time to figure out how to upload to the cloud from the app since you cannot do it manually, once set it up so the app does it automatically when it decides is the right time. You cannot splice videos together to make anything longer than 7 minutes so if you are only making a video with nothing but the best action shots it’s great, otherwise you have to save it to your device then upload into another app. Overall it’s an ok app. Definitely not the one app you can do everything with your GoPro.
GoPro doesn’t recognize the app
by br-freedive on 2020/10/19 21:59
I Purchased this up in July it is now October and GoPro still cannot make it work with my iPhone 11. I try to load videos into the cloud and tells me I have to subscribe and then I try to subscribe again and it tells me I’m already subscribed. GoPro blames the problems on iTunes and the app creators. I have contacted GoPro’s customer service over a dozen times and I’m tired of getting the same answer. After dealing once again with GoPro support, I would highly recommend Sony action cameras, I have friends that have them and the reviews from professional motorcyclist are all 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

DONT USE GOPRO PLUS
by shottafelyfe on 2020/10/19 00:53
Media on the app wont automatically upload to gopro plus cloud. Please for the life of me dont use gopro plus. The app it self is very buggy also
Could be so much better
by Elnicknamo on 2020/10/18 21:49
I’m going to review both the GoPro app and GoPro Plus in this review but I’ll keep them separate. The App: The app is so-so at best. Yes it’s great that you can control the camera through it but it so often loses the connection and then you can’t start or stop the recording when you need to and that can be a huge pain. I can’t tell you how much great footage I’ve missed and how many times I’ve had a full memory card or a dead battery because I couldn’t stop it from recording when I wanted to. Obviously this is only an issue if you are mounting it in such a way that you can’t physically reach the camera to stop and start the recording manually, which I do often. This is the general overarching problem with GoPro and their products that I’ve encountered.. great features but glitchy and unreliable. All the image quality in the world is meaningless if your camera freezes and stops recording. I haven’t used the app for editing much but I haven’t found it particularly easy to use and there are many simple things you can’t do with it. I do however like that it’s pretty easy to preview your recorded videos on it from your camera and they have a nice feature for taking screenshots from your video which works well. GoPro Plus: If this was just a review for plus it would absolutely receive one star instead of 2. It is garbage! I am so frustrated and annoyed with this stupid service!! They advertise that your videos and photos will automatically upload to the cloud and that you can upload any amount. I loaded a bunch of videos to the app about half of which have uploaded to the cloud and the rest simply aren’t uploading. There is no way to manually ask the app to upload them it’s all supposed to happen automatically and if it doesn’t do it there’s nothing you can do. Also, some of the videos that indicate that they’ve been uploaded to the cloud aren’t actually there in the cloud. Then bizarrely some of the dates attached to the videos seem to have changed after they were uploaded to the cloud and are no longer shown in the correct order which makes it super confusing to even try to figure out what has and hasn’t been uploaded. The service is just a total mess and super unreliable. I would absolutely not trust Plus to hold your photos/videos if they are important to you. I really wish GoPro would spend more time and effort of quality control in all their products, it’s really disappointing.
Great camera! Ultra lame app
by alonzozilch on 2020/10/18 15:18
Why ? You think with GoPros revenue they could have a better interface for uploading videos and pics. This app makes me feel like I am back in the days of Windows 95. I have a Mac book pro and iPhone 11 and it’s still a hassle. I’ve been trying for a day to get it to upload my stuff to the GoPro plus cloud and no go!!!! Super frustrating. Makes me not want to use the camera anymore and just deal with my iPhone11 for action vids. Do better GOPro. Might have to rebrand yourself GoPoor. Besides the awesome quick customer service they have it has been a windows 95 flashback nightmare to get my vids to the GoPro plus cloud. After my customer service that was pleasant I still can’t get it to upload my stuff to the GoPro plus cloud. Seriously GoPro you have millions at your disposal and it’s 2020 DO BETTER !!!! Invest in app developers instead of buying good reviews. Most frustrating tech thing I’ve been through in years.

Slow. On phone and computer. Keeps crashing while uploading even though I paid $50. Just horrible. Canceling.
Hard to manage
by nkmdknsnlsnkjenjkneff on 2020/10/18 02:48
I’ve had this app for a while and at first it wasn’t bad but then it started glitching and started getting slower to the point where my new media doesn’t show up, and now it won’t even let me see my media on my new go pro but I do like the camera I just can’t use it

Just got the Hero5 as a gift with an attachment for every situation. Couldn’t be happier. I’ll recommend and probably continue buying these cameras forever.

by Masoud84 on 2020/10/17 19:07
It takes ages to download videos from my camera to my phone and it keeps failing . So I had a chat with customer service . The agent asked me to update the camera and on the website I everything just like the agent told me and then I clicked on next step to go on . But the website won’t go any further !! It stopped and failed !! I tried ten times and it failed ten times !! I told the agent but he or she claimed that No everything is fine with our website !!!!! So wait a min , is that what you offer guys ?? Slow app slow website and bad costumer service !! Shame on China shame on GoPro

It crashed a few times while making my video but when I rebooted the app it had saved where I was at so I didn’t lose anything. I’m a total novice at video editing but it was easy and did what I wanted it to!
Crashes frequently
by bboyle27 on 2020/10/14 07:44
Great features and super useful app, but it’s very prone to crashing which has become a major source of frustration.
Why is it such a long process
by learnerK on 2020/10/14 03:45
I have to have the app, have to have the GoPro plugged in, have to pay monthly $50, have to download each pic to the app which takes a long time, then download again onto my phone. why is it so many steps when other cameras download straight to your phone. makes me want to sell my GoPro and buy a professional camera. It should be faster and the editing and video making should be a charge but not a charge just to download my pics. and not at $50 per month.
Great app to make small videos.

Great, and I want a split tool
by Ls_ga on 2020/10/07 21:08
I think GoPro is better than Yi because my GoPro HERO7 has better quality than my Yi Lite. My Yi Lite doesn’t really have good quality display but my HERO7 has very clear quality and at least I can control my HERO7, which I can still do on my Yi Lite. And thankfully, the GoPro app understands that my iPad is a iPad, but the Yi Action app thinks my iPad is a iPhone. And the Control tab’s interface is much easier to access than the Home tab on the Yi Action app’s. I wanted a split tool so I can split my videos into two separate clips so I can make one clip have text and the other not have text

by ParadiseComputerServices on 2020/10/07 03:07
The app worked perfect up until 3 days ago. App says it’s connected, but as soon as live preview screen starts to load, the entire app shuts down. iPhone 8+ with latest firmware on camera. Update as of 10/6/20: I tried restarting phone and resetting phone network settings. I also removed link to camera in the app and added it again. Says connected, but still shuts down entire app when I try to load live preview screen. Even tried deleting the app completely, and reinstalled.

I had issues early on with a GoPro 5 getting it to work between camera and iPhone. That being said with our GoPro Hero 7 Black and now the new 9 things are fine. Occasional connection issues that resolve quickly have not been much of a problem. We use the cameras daily in our work and they have proven to be a valuable asset in getting things done. With the concerns over Covid 19 we have been able to get training videos shot and into folks hands quickly. Hopefully the system continues to work properly.
10/10 would recommend

Control GoPro needs better landscape support, especially for iPad Pro. Needs batch export option to Files App not just batch exporting to Photos App. Would be nice if video files could save location data. Other than this, I like the app so far, it’s reliable and transfers files efficiently.
Great app overall. Not a waste of your time!

No Preview When Recording, Really?!
by JoelKristianson on 2020/10/02 23:52
I never write reviews on apps. As a matter of fact this is my first ever. I cannot believe that GoPro released a product that’s supposed to be “bigger and better” yet you cannot watch what you’re recording with the Hero 9 Black. That’s ridiculous for something so expensive. The preview is disabled as soon as you start recording and resumes as soon as you stop recording. This camera is going back! That’s one of the main features I wanted. Should have done just a bit more research before buying. Sad........

1st time dealing with GoPro and I love it.
Antigua Cámara

App freezes and crashes constantly
by bschonfeld on 2020/10/01 13:53
I have an iPhone 8 and this app repeatedly and constantly freezes and crashes when trying to edit video or photos. Awful.
Terrible
by k. kk k on 2020/09/30 16:59
Doesn’t connect at all peice of crap
Crashing app!
by @Team_H3AT on 2020/09/29 21:04
This app crashes non stop. After failing multiple times to receive media from my camera to the app, this app crashes in the middle of editing. Not only do I have to forget the camera and set up again, I have to reboot the app just to edit the same video I was just working on. This latest update has really screwed this app. Maybe it’s not up to date with IOS14. Please devs,fix this!
App used to work fine with my Older GoPro Hero 3
by Dave40150 on 2020/09/29 18:27
Now it has connection issues to the WiFi and virtually useless for me. The app has the newest updates. It almost feels like I have a cheap Chinese sports camera with a virtually unusable app instead of a once 300 plus camera.
worst purchase ever made
by xurclavchen54321 on 2020/09/29 06:00
camera dies fast so i have to purchase extra 3 batteries, fast i mean like less than 30'mins. App doesnt let me connect to my axxount nor restore purchase for icloud!!!! nothing works! saving takes a lot of time or even downloading!!! cant get hold to anybody on chat! If only I can put millions of 1star, then I would!!!! Or if theres a zero I wouldve chosen it
GoPro review read all!
by Ph0enix1020 on 2019/05/12 20:27
I mean it’s a good app unlike everyone else says Because then they probably don’t know how to use it (read all) I have a GoPro even though I know that I’m probably not gonna use it much only on trips and vacay’s but i still keep it just in case... let’s talk about the features okay we’ll Im first off you can live stream which is awesome you can see what your camera is seeing in live time even with sound! so it’s like a mini security camera second off you can download pictures and videos from your GoPro at any time but warning it does take a while which I don’t like but after a while you download it/them also when you first get the app it will take some time to start it up but then things will run smoothly. I normally don’t do reviews this is probably my first time doing one so I made it a bit long and thorough but what this whole passage was saying is, it’s a good app and even though you might not use it that much it still helps.
GoPro you can do better
by hcf97 on 2020/03/30 22:38
I have had go pros for years. I’ve mostly just edited my videos on my computer but I decided with the shorter videos it was easier to just edit it on my phone. That’s where the issues started. So the app is very straight forward. You can see what your camera sees, control it, and rewatch your videos. Great, fantastic. But then I downloaded the Splice app (also made by GoPro) and when I went to make the edit there were no videos. I go back to the GoPro app and I had to download the videos onto my phone which is ok for the most part except for the part where I have a 16gb phone so definitely too small to save my videos. So I go back to splice to try to find the GoPro app through it to make it easier...... and it doesn’t. How do you make three different apps and no have ANY OF THEM communicate with on another. ESPECIALLY the editing apps with the GoPro app! Also why do I have to download the videos off of my camera, taking up space on my phone, then download it again to my gallery, also taking up space on my phone. So I’m double downloading videos to just use them once to edit them delete them. If you make an editing app it should communicate with the GoPro app to be able to get the files from it to be able to edit. THATS A MARKETING THING TOO! I’m disappointed because I love the company of GoPro but this is ridiculous. There isn’t anything support can do for me so don’t offer it. This is an app design issue that can be fixed easily.
Constant media upload issues
by wildbill707 on 2020/04/16 20:06
Using my Hero7 Black with my IPhone 8 has been troublesome. I have just recently started using the camera (3 months now) and I’ve been taking photos and videos and uploading them to my social media without any issues. I just took a video recently and it will not appear on my camera roll no matter what I do. Just spent One Hour and 30 Minutes on the phone with customer support troubleshooting countless different methods in order to be able to upload thise specific videos to my phone and it is not working. I took the video in 1080P 30FPS so there shouldn’t be a compatibility issue. I’ve tried saving the videos onto my computer, reformatting the SD card, and then re-uploading the videos back to the SD card to upload to the app to no avail. Even if it will begin to upload new media my old media is useless and I fear this is going to become a common occurrence with this camera and app. I know this app has had its problems but I can’t determine if it’s the app or my camera so I’m at a loss. It’s hard to be happy with a device when after 3 months you can't upload your media onto the only compatible app that works with the device. The customer support for GoPro is really great at least and they tried their best but you would think that the app developers would put some more effort into making the media transfer as seamless as possible. For a $300-$400 camera that should not be too much to ask.
Go pro could do so much better
by Jerry jeep on 2019/09/22 02:02
Love the H7 hate this app, ok so the media pulled from the GoPro saves to its sand boxed library and you have to then export it again from there to your local files, older version did not act this way. Gets very disorganized because it does not tell you that you sent it over you just get one in the app and now one in the photos section. A little search shows it “does not double your data” but uses some kind of image shortcut hack, doubtful! You can export the same pic/vid many times and it just adds more complexity duplicating itself. No way to tell that it’s on your device so you have to look in two different locations for the same media, and you can make many copy’s that will just be scattered around in random creation order on the iPhone photos side, huge fail from a marketing idea which keeps you trapped using there branding style editing software which is terrible, if it was good enough to work well it wouldn’t be such a big deal and would welcome the sandboxed media, but I have to burn it through there firewall to unlock it and basically after I sort out my few projects on this iPhone I’m just going strait to the pc from here forward! Please don’t make this harder than it should be GoPro! Can’t even share albums inside your app, don’t try to limit us in your corner we know the grass is greener on the other side...
Great features in theory, but glitchy and almost unusable
by saleen8927 on 2019/11/15 00:24
GoPro (and the app) have some great features, and the video quality of their cameras makes gopro one of the best choices out there (although I understand others are quickly catching up). The app isn’t all that user-friendly, but I can live with that. The problem is that the connectivity between app and camera is terrible. I tried two different cameras and two different phones with the same results. It connects successfully maybe 25% of the time. Closing out of the app and restarting is usually fixes the problem (not always), but it’s very frustrating to never know if it will work or not. If you’re hoping to be able to start the camera remotely to quickly catch action, don’t count on it. It also constantly loses connectivity randomly, so don’t expect to rely on it for a live view experience. The auto upload feature is a great idea, where it automatically uploads your clips to the cloud when it connects to your home WiFi (or whatever WiFi you set), but in practice it never does it automatically. Beyond that, their solution for organizing and editing video is subpar and definitely not meant for a pro or anyone who does more than upload a few vacation pics here and there. GoPro might have the name recognition, but that’s where it stops.
New app is poor with quik integration
by Reviewer245335 on 2019/08/02 22:35
Up until the recent update making videos was easy and flawless. But with the new quik integration it’s weak compared to the separate quick app. First the highlights is probably the worst part. You could previously slide the highlight marker to the exact frame now it’s guess and check I have to go back to the quik video to see if it even tagged the right spot then when it’s not right I have to go back in to edit mode. It’s back and forth on every clip and takes me 2-3 times longer to edit now. Old app tag the frame ... next clip ... done, already miss it. The music selection seems to be less than before as well. Why default to 4:3??? Does anyone even have a 4:3 display device these days. And why not default to original size?? Maybe I missed that on the old app but I can’t make a video in the new app with out either cutting off parts of the sides or top. I hope this is just the first try and the app will improve and that the peeps at GoPro even read these reviews. I just upgraded to the new 7 from a 5 and the new app is the only reason I regret spending the $$$. It was so much better in the old app.
Amazing app. Does everything
by Dwave27 on 2019/08/20 11:02
GoPro has finally made the ultimate app. This app lets me make Quikstories that look great very quickly and I’ve basically stopped bothering with using Final Cut Pro to edit because of the ease of use and how great the videos turn out. My only complaint would be that gopro please support 4k resolution output from the app! That’s the only downside. I rarely shoot 4k and take full advantage of my Hero Black 7 because I know the final QuickStory will only be 1080 anyways... I joined Gopro Plus and LOVE how the gopro automatically uploads everything and anything new to the cloud whenever I plug it in. First time I plugged it in I had 128gb and it successfully uploaded ALL of that content, although of course it took awhile. Now I don’t need to worry about deleting videos to save space, etc. it’s all in the cloud forever and easy to access.
Interesting toy, not a professional tool
by Faux tog on 2019/07/29 03:40
I find the software for both the Camera (Hero5 Black) and the GoPro App to fall sadly short of their advertised capabilities. The camera software is tediously slow and disconnects from the app randomly. Pairing it with the app is time consuming at best (when it pairs) and frustrating when it won’t. This process could be greatly improved by removing the need for password when pairing (or at least make it optional) and getting rid of screen lock altogether or at least increasing the time before it locks itself. I find myself having to unlock screen three to four times when switching between photo and video settings and reviewing media. The net result is I spend FAR too much time fiddling with controls when I should be taking pictures. This is my fourth GoPro, and in fairness, each has been better than the last. The integral water proof case is awesome and the image quality is steadily improving. I give this three stars because the GoPro system has a lot of potential, but right now the camera controls and app don’t live up to the hype.
The app is ok when it works...
by jrodmckis on 2020/05/25 18:54
I just don’t understand why I constantly have connectivity issues. And it takes forever to preview or upload a video. I use the app to upload off the camera and download to my phone I have over 25gb of available space on my phone and 1.5tb of iCloud but it still tells me there’s not enough available space for 1-2 gb videos. I bought an brand new iPad sitting here and cannot preview a video... tried 5x disconnecting the camera reconnecting closing the app again and still I can’t preview or even download a 7 min video on a brand new iPad with over 20gb of space. I even thought about using the GoPro cloud subscription to help with this problem, but if I cannot even download or preview a 7 minute video on the app I don’t think I will invest anymore into the GoPro products. Btw I am using a GoPro hero7 white camera that I wouldn’t recommend at all. My 7 min video is still “waiting”’the whole time I typed this review on my iPad sitting on my lap it hasn’t even started to download. Only reason for 2stars is that when the app works it is ok. Only ok...
If I could give 0 stars I would
by GP4958382029;82910 on 2019/05/26 23:19
The gopro itself is a decent camera but the way it interfaces with this app is enough to make me want to sell it. This app is the least intuitive piece of software I have ever used and coming from such a large company thats just sad. I usually spend about 5-10 minutes trying to connect the camera (the only camera i ever connect) and when i finally do the gopro times out and turns itself off, disconnecting. Meaning i have to press a button on the camera every 4-5 seconds just to keep it alive, and when you’re trying to download something to the app that will take 20 minutes, you could see why this is maddening. The camera can be turned on and sitting next to the phone and it still takes 9 tries to connect it. Sometimes i have to connect through wifi, sometimes bluetooth, sometimes straight through the app. And not being able to give my camera a personal name? Just make it so only i can see that name and it wouldnt affect gopro in any way. This app behaves like one that is wayyy in beta. And it’s been like that for years now. Fix this gopro.
Spotty Connection
by Life with Steve on 2020/09/23 14:58
EDIT: GoPro developer responded with steps to change Wi-Fi bands from 5 GHz to 2.4 GHz. This didn’t help. Additionally, there’s a new “update” that’s supposed to solve this issue. Seeing that my GoPro doesn’t connect, I had to manually download the update (which is a whole ‘nother can of worms). After installing the update to my SD card and installing, I still can’t connect or preview what the camera is seeing. This is a total waste of an app and at this point, based on the issues with the app, and lackluster performance of the camera, I wish I’d bought the Insta 360 One R. I’ve had both my GoPro Hero 8 Black, & the GoPro app since May/June of 2020 and this app has consistently gotten worse. Initially I had issues with it connecting while I previewed certain shots but as soon as I would start recording, it would drop the connection and I’d have to start over. Now, it doesn’t even connect to my GoPro; it’ll power it in but won’t display what the GoPro is displaying, nor will it connect in order for me to view what’s on my SD card.
Very confusing
by mkl323 on 2018/06/21 04:18
All I wanted to do was make a cool movie out of some short GoPro clips from vacation . There are barely any instructions at all. I’ve been messing with this for hours and still can’t figure it out . I can’t understand a few things. If I take a 2 min video and go back to watch it in the app and then out of that 2 mins I cut a clip out that’s 15 secs long why does that clip not save to the app so I can delete the 2 minute one. What’s the point of having the ability to cut and highlight clips and where do they save ??? It makes no sense to me that if I take a long video and go back to watch it and decide that I only want a minute of it that it doesn’t save anywhere . Then I tried quick and I can’t get my GoPro videos go transfer over . When I go into it and scroll down to GoPro it’s only showing 2 videos . I bought the GoPro so I could take cool clips when I’m away or fishing and make a movie out of them. Sorry , but if the 1 video that did transfer over Quik took like 10 seconds of it and made a movie if you can call it that. So far , it’s really aggravating.
Poorly designed, flaky, frustrating
by Xyzzy999 on 2019/06/27 01:33
The app has tons of problems and irritations. For example, I’ve spent the hour annoyed with: - Connectivity problems. Connecting to the camera sort-of works over WiFi, but this forces a disconnection from WiFi with Internet. (Despite much fiddling, Bluetooth seems to not work for transferring images.) - The app is designed to download pictures into **GoPro’s** cloud service, but I don’t want to manage + pay for yet another cloud service. I want my pictures with my other iPhone/iPad photos... but putting them there seems to only be possible one photo at a time, using many taps, via the “share” interface. Ugh. - The app randomly switches the iPad into portrait mode, making it painful on an iPad with a keyboard connected. - Images display initially as a very low resolution thumbnail, then after a *long* delay a better version appears, making it a really tedious process to figure out which images are good vs. blurry. The high quality images don’t seem to be pre-fetched or cached.
Big issue
by bjerding on 2018/08/20 17:53
So I used to use my Go Pro Hero 4 session on this app and it worked great. I tried to use it yesterday and also today and still am unable to connect my Go Pro to the application. I have “ “forgotten” the WiFi network from the Go Pro and then tried to connect again. That didn’t work. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Nothing has worked. I keep getting stuck on the screen that tells me that I need to go connect the WiFi in my phone settings. So I do that and make sure it’s connected. Go back to the Go Pro app and a pop up comes up saying, “Oops, that didn’t work. There was a problem; try reconnecting to your camera’s WiFi in your iPhone’s settings.” And I am given the options “Get Support” or “Got it!” I have tried both options. Can’t find any new support on it... I have already followed all of the steps listed. Multiple times. My iPhone is also up to date and I have an iPhone 8 Plus. I really hope this gets fixed soon or else I don’t know what to do with my Go Pro.
Great Mobile remote for Gopros!
by .ZamaK. on 2020/07/16 00:42
I love every little feature about this app especially the fact that you can view your cameras media and control it and see what the camera sees on your phone live! My one little peeve is that there is no “Are your sure” warning when your about to download footage from you camera to your phone you might accidentally tap trash instead of download when in a rush. It would be great if a message would pop up when you tap trash that’s says “ are you sure you want to delete these files?” It would be great if this was added just to make your footage a little safer so you don’t accidentally delete footage permanently when quickly trying to download it. Other that this the app is great and I use it all the time! Highly recommend using this app if you have a GoPro.
Not as efficient as it used to be
by KTSurfs on 2019/06/15 20:41
I used to use the GoPro App all the time when I lived in Hawaii to capture all my surf and snorkeling and hiking pics. It was amazing because I could do everything wirelessly with my phone and never have to plug into a computer. It used to be fast and all my pics and videos downloaded fast. Nowadays, I don’t use it as often, but definitely in the last year I noticed that App has really downgraded in quality and efficiency when I’m downloading my pictures from my GoPro. My pictures do not all load. I can never see all of them and if they do appear in view, it’s blurry. I updated my GoPro with the latest firmware. My app is updated. Batteries on both devices are charged or plugged in. I don’t understand why the app pic download is so terrible now. I don’t understand why it has to use cellular data. I should be able to stay on my WiFi connection and still connect to my GoPro to get my picture and keep the speed of WiFi without having to use data. I connect to my Google Home and Chromecast with my phone and stay on my WiFi.
Missing features for fusion
by Mickie MANG on 2018/03/24 18:13
I bought the fusion on 3/12 and have been loving it. I hated how long it took to render videos on my computer then found out I could do them on my phone or iPad. It’s been way easier and faster using the app. After using it I realized it’s missing 2 key features that’s needed for the app and another one that would be nice to have. 1: joystick for editing. When I edit with my fingers by sliding the video it causes 2 huge issues. Knocks the video off it’s level, then I have to twist it back, and panning isn’t smooth. Using my phones accelerometer isn’t always ideal. Sometimes I can’t stand or spin to get the whole 360 degrees of video. If I want to edit on a plane or on the train, or anywhere in public, I can’t. 2: Add a panning feature for photos. Having a 360 camera is great, and there are times I want to show the whole 360 pic without making a tiny planet. In order for me to do this, I have to open the image, press screen recording, go back to the app, and spin in a circle. Once again a joystick would be nice since the pan is wobbly. 3: Split pic for selfies. There are cameras on both sides of the fusion, this allows me to catch both the action and my reaction. It would be nice if there was a way to export 2 views in 1 pic/video without having to create 2 exports and putting them together using another app.
Disappointed Gopro App for Gopro Max 360
by Igorlopeslimamarinho on 2020/07/03 05:17
I bought a Gopro Max 360 this week July 1, 2020 because I found the way to shoot 360 degrees very cool, but I am very disappointed with the limitation of the mobile application, I can't even make a slow motion or increase the speed of a selected part of my video, a simple task that any video editor does. Inside the app there is a type of Gopro Studio that makes short videos that is ridiculous to limit the time of the video with just over 40 seconds of maximum duration, that is, I would presume to cut my videos in several parts to be able to make a single video if my video is longer. Editing a song and choosing the selected part I want to cut is a joke. I will soon test the Gopro application on a Computer, but I already think that it will be very limited too. I have always heard of Gopro and never bought one, when it comes to capturing images I believe you are the best but I thought you were already very evolved in the issue of editing these images in your apps and honestly I did not expect this unpleasant surprise .
In critical need of bug fixes
by JaysonB. on 2018/10/02 15:58
The only reason this review isn’t getting one star is because if it was to function correctly I would have no complaints, I really love the user interface and what it is trying to achieve. However, ever since I got my GoPro Hero4 Black and downloaded this onto my phone, The app has progressively been getting worse. It’s gotten to the point where I take pictures but can’t see my pics once I go to my library. In order to see my pics, I’m forced to download all pictures individually onto my phone which takes up even more phone storage. A lot of times the app will cease to function, And I have to restart everything all over (Turn off Wi-Fi, restart Camera, force close the app). I ask that you fix this ASAP because it really takes away from the joy of using my GoPro and since I rely on the app as my viewfinder, and prefer taking pictures over video, this problem is just unfair and unacceptable to me as a customer. Please fix! Will rate higher once you do.
Pro Videographer Review
by Mercury is my last name on 2019/05/05 18:09
As a professional videographer I highly recommend the go Pro hero seven along with the go Pro app and Quik video maker. For every day social media posting this is the absolute easiest, fastest and most professional looking video on the market. Especially the hero seven hyper stabilization!! I would not recommend shooting much video at night as your video can get pretty grainy but any daytime shooting or sunset shooting or shooting that would not allow for a big rig this is the way to go hands down. Big props to go pro for creating such amazing user-friendly applications to go along with the amazing Hero 7 Black. I have never written a review on any app but after using this one I had to say something. Next will be music videos I make using the app. It can’t be done!
Really wish the attachments such as the speedometer was like it was in early 2019
by Seth15c on 2020/03/30 02:53
I love the camera and loved this app. It is amazing being able to throw the stickers for speedometer and maps right into your videos. I will say however I am kicking my self for updating the app in 2020. The features are less than what I had on the 2019 app. Plus the speedometer looks lame and childish now. Before it looked like a race car speedometer and you could see the degrees on the compass. I’m disappointed with the update. Also, I use to be able to size them all to the size I wanted. Now the g-force is huge and in the way. Even if I double tap to move it. GoPro if you could go back to allowing us to size the stickers and move them wherever the user decides like you did on the 2019 app I’d give you five stars and be much appreciative. Thanks for a great camera. But please how can I get the old stickers?
System crashes
by VSanz80 on 2018/07/31 16:34
I like the image of the camera but when taking photos it takes a lot to save the images. Also for some reason very often the camera frozen not letting me press on any commands. I have to turn it off and restart it to be able to preview the video. When loading the videos for preview it takes a long time and if I want to replay a video it frozen again. When I’m using the app with my iPhone sometimes won’t let me start recording saying the camera is in use. Regarding the battery life is better to have an extra battery. In my case (since photos take forever to save) I prefer recording a video but battery doesn’t last long. 2 to 4 hours turning off the camera in between videos to save battery life (it’s a pain). I do like the under water images the body of the camera and the options in resolution with the image stabilization.
GoPro isn’t there yet. Sad.
by Derivative97 on 2019/07/09 12:52
First, the Hero 7 Black takes beautiful action videos in daylight. However, The overall experience is clunky with the camera itself, the mobile app and the desktop version. It’s actually quite disappointing. Do I really need a master’s degree in computer science to shoot videos and edit them? Okay, that’s a bit of hyperbole but you get the point. I have top-end gear and I expected the GoPro experience to be seamless. Shoot videos, no weird settings/defaults, just point and shoot like an iPhone and have the basic magic happen. Plug it into my computer and use the app to import and edit the videos. Simple request. Instead, the desktop app imports only SOME files (using the approved high-end SD card), their desktop app can’t play it’s own videos (when VLC does — it’s a $3,000 laptop so it should on GoPro’s app too). Time lapse imports every frame as a separate file on the desktop app and plays them with massive stutter in the newest mobile app (iPhone XS max). Default settings on my laptop/phone. In addition, the extra functions on the GoPro camera itself are clunky — having to hit buttons twice, accidentally hitting buttons and having the thing go to hell, having the camera off and having it turn on if I accidentally hit the record button. The entire vision of what the GoPro and software does and how the camera/workflow integration is done needs to be revisited from the ground up. Period. Period.
Used to be a one star for me but NOW!!
by vivnev3 on 2020/01/13 02:47
Before I knew how to properly use this app I was so frustrated with it. I didn’t think you could edit in the app at all except cut clips, BUT OH WAS I WRONG! All I had to do was download video/picture into my media and VOILA editing features as far as the eye could see! Sorry for making a bunk review when I just was uneducated about the way the app worked! Love my GoPro! it’s come v handy with us building our tiny home development. fueled our instagram/YouTube pages with the videos of how blissful -and irritating- it is to build your home from ground up. Looking forward to many more tiny home builds, designs, workshops, laughs, tears, and for sure puppy snuggle videos the go pro will capture!
UPDATE: NO STARS FOR THIS TIDDLYWINK APP
by Shonamutt on 2019/05/25 12:44
All I want to do is save a clip from a video to my camera roll. Been trying for over an hour. Very poor instructions (still looking for them). When I’m fishing I run video then snip the clips I want. Very hard on iPhone. UPDATE: Here is GoPro response to my review: How to do it To grab a still frame from a video follow these simple steps here below: Tap the Media Library icon in the bottom right hand corner of the app Select the video you want Click on the Photo Icon next to the Scissors icon on the bottom of the app Scrub through frame-by-frame to the image that you'd like to share Select "Next" in the upper right hand corner Select where you'd like to share it to, and you're all set! Totally off topic. I already figured this out. GoPro please reread the original review. I want an easy way to SAVE MY STUFF (COMPLETE AND WHOLE FULL RES VIDEO AND PICS) TO THE CAMERA ROLL ON THE IPHONE OR IPAD. DOWN GRADE THE REVIEW TO: Zero stars App is designed for children who need to be told what to do and how to do it not for people who are capable of thinking for themselves or — heaven forbid — actually know what they want to do. I like my camera but the App is crap. I want more cameras but won’t buy GoPros if the app is not fixed soon. All I want is to easily save the full image and video with all metadata to camera roll. Should be simple many other apps can do this. Just a simple download and save that’s it and that’s all I need.
Love the Camera, Disappointed in this App
by Super SARS on 2018/12/13 17:48
I am a long time GoPro user and have had multiple camera’s over the years. And to be fair, I have always been happy about my purchases. But that was until I got my hero 5 black and started trying to use it on the app. Here’s why: I film videos on my GoPro using the GPS feature so I can track my speed or location while recording. It is a great feature. Unfortunately, you are only able to retrieve this data if you download to the GoPro app. I would have no problem with this if it actually worked. But every time I plug my Quik Key into my iPad or other iOS device, it ends up not previewing the files, being unable to download them and the app ends up crashing and closing. My app is up so date, my Quik Key is the newer one, my camera is updated and the SD card is formatted properly. And these aren’t even long videos! If I can, I am able to import to the a directly from the camera. Unfortunately, this kills the camera battery and takes so long. Overall, -The app always crashes -It isn’t comparable with the GoPro Quik Key -It is really slow You would think the app designed for an “ACTION CAMERA” would be better at actually doing the ACTIONS it is designed to do. This review saddened me to write because I love this camera. But GoPro, this is a fail and a big one. Even your own accessories don’t work with your own app. One Star rating until see improvements
Slow and frustrating
by The_Skip11 on 2020/08/08 07:34
The editing on your phone is great. Try to do anything else and expect to be frustrated for 24 hours. Uploading footage to the cloud is slow. Downloading footage to the app is slow. And deleting stuff on my phone so there is space is slow. It’s really frustrating that the cloud isn’t better. Especially since I pay $5 a month for it. I wish I didn’t have to download footage to my phone in order to edit it. I want to be able to do that directly from the cloud. But that’s not an option so again, expect to be frustrated and for it to take 24 hours. I have to set up my GoPro overnight plugged in so it can fully upload my daily videos to the cloud. And even when I wake up sometimes and check it, it errors out and I only get maybe 5/20 videos I was trying to upload. It needs to be better than this.
Crashing updates as usual
by rlittke on 2019/09/30 03:34
I've owned several gopros and as usual, the apps and updates are always crashing, the cameras rarely work without crashing. Keeping them paired is always a problem. Updates fail windowless, fail to install properly and using a computer is no better. Update : bought the new GoPro 7 and once again truly disappointed. I would have known better. First time underwater with the new water proof housing tested it before I went down turned it on took a 7 second clip and turned it off. Went for my dive, and saw a couple of sharks at 60 ft. Went to turn on the GoPro, nothing, dead, tried several times. Got to the surface and pulled the Camara out, dry, tried to turn it on, nothing,dead, pulled the battery out,put it back in and it turns on and works fine. Hey Go Pro,want to tell me how I'm suppose to do that 60ft under water? Maybe you should work on that!? Wasted money once again.
GOPRO FIX THIS; Videos won’t download
by The Man5 1/2 on 2018/09/17 05:36
When I go to download the videos I recorded onto my phone using the app, it takes forever to download specific videos, and then when it gets to the end of the download, it says “converting your files to your quik story” and it sits there for a long time... one time I tried letting it sit for an hour and a half... it gets stuck. So I quit the download and open the app back up, and most of the videos I tried to download are not on the app. So I try to download them again, but when I pull down it goes straight to the “converting your files to your quik story” again. It won’t stop.. again, so I quit the app... again... the only way to get this to fix and download videos again, is if I delete the videos that never got downloaded. So my great shots I took have to be completely removed and never gotten to be seen because the APP WON’T WORK. This needs to be fixed.
May have damaged my SD card
by @lucia99 on 2020/01/08 06:52
I’ve been using this app for about a year since I got my Hero 7 Black. The camera itself has been glitchy and very disappointing but I had no issues with the app itself until recently. I was attempting to upload videos from snorkeling in Hawaii (I was very excited about the content) and the app immediately crashed. When I tried to open it again it said that I had no SD card. That was strange considering I had not removed the SD card yet. When I looked at my go pro and tried to view the media it said that there was a card error and all I could do was delete everything on it. Good bye cute turtle videos, so far GoPro has been nothing but a disappointment. Other than that however the app has worked pretty well, the videos I’ve downloaded in the past were smooth and quick to save.
Gopro app
by SoaR Gabe10 on 2019/11/30 04:11
First off I own the GoPro hero 7 silver. It is an exceptional camera but it doesn’t really matter too much because I do not use it very much other than trips and vacations. I do not necessarily think My camera quality is what it looks like in the GoPro hero 7 silver trailer/ GoPro videos. However the app is not good at all. It makes me connect to the GoPro WiFi which disconnects me to whatever WiFi I am using. It would be much easier if instead if WiFi, it was only bluetooth. I assume I am doing the process correctly but when I enter the GoPro app on my GoPros WiFi, when I connect to the camera, and look at the media on my phone, the media takes a while to load and a lot of time closing out the app. I decided to write this review because this has happened to me every time I load the media, and is even happening to me right now as I try to look at the footage from my recent trip.
Login Required - Insane Decision
by mancuj1 on 2017/09/04 10:31
Seriously, have you lost your mind requiring users to log in to use this app? I have been waiting a year to get this issue resolved and still no progress. I am going on an trip for 2 months and will not have international cell coverage while abroad. In addition, I am a pilot who uses your product during flight (where there is NO cell coverage). How do you expect your users to run this app with the asinine requirement of having to log in every time? A large percentage of your user base is remote & disconnected while using your products? Do you understand your user base at all? Maybe do some focus group testing PRIOR to modifying a functional working app just so that you can collect user data (which is none of your business to begin with). On a positive note, GoPro will have user data available to sell and market with - WHAT A RIDICULOUS, SELF SERVING, BRAINLESS & SHORT SIGHTED MOVE!!!! Fix this app by removing the login requirement!
Hilight tags are broken
by Diputswab on 2019/05/04 06:31
U can’t delete tags without using the desktop app. The tags usually miss the most exciting part and play the really lame stuff, and since you can’t edit this, it screws Quik up. Transfer speed is slow, which I found out the hard way is necessary because the desktop app often corrupts/deletes videos from the Hero when transferring (it’s a common problem, despite what card you use the software glitches and your videos disappear). the only way to avoid losing footage is to lethargically WiFi transfer each file to phone for backup unless you want to end up looking at a bunch of .LRV files in your DCIM folder. An avid user of both Gopro and Garmin action products, I can safely say that even though Garmin has flaws and isn’t as popular, they at least provide a complete hardware-software integration. Gopro software is always buggy and it feels like they give you the middle finger whenever commit to using it. I only keep this app for composing my shot and reviewing footage, but after 6 years of poor quality I’ve learned it’s better to just use the Remote and LCD bacpac + Extendercable instead of dealing with these shoddy apps. Remember, you paid for the camera, not the software which is all that matters to GoPro. NEVER trust GoPro to transfer files. Always back up to a separate storage device before you ever consider opening this app.
Great camera! Ultra lame app
by alonzozilch on 2020/10/18 15:18
Why ? You think with GoPros revenue they could have a better interface for uploading videos and pics. This app makes me feel like I am back in the days of Windows 95. I have a Mac book pro and iPhone 11 and it’s still a hassle. I’ve been trying for a day to get it to upload my stuff to the GoPro plus cloud and no go!!!! Super frustrating. Makes me not want to use the camera anymore and just deal with my iPhone11 for action vids. Do better GOPro. Might have to rebrand yourself GoPoor. Besides the awesome quick customer service they have it has been a windows 95 flashback nightmare to get my vids to the GoPro plus cloud. After my customer service that was pleasant I still can’t get it to upload my stuff to the GoPro plus cloud. Seriously GoPro you have millions at your disposal and it’s 2020 DO BETTER !!!! Invest in app developers instead of buying good reviews. Most frustrating tech thing I’ve been through in years.
First time
by Dndjfnfjf on 2020/06/14 21:52
Just got my new GoPro and edited my first video. The App crashed a lot in the beginning. I learned I need to save often or it overloads the phone rams with all the sweet 4K footage. Some features were not available such as; I can add text to videos but it only appears in the beginning of that clip. I can create a highlight (short clip) but I can’t choose how long or short it can be. If I choose auto highlight and one part of the clip I don’t like because I was filming the ground I can’t just tell the app not to use the one specific highlight I have to manually do it even though I liked how the auto did it. Why!!! This could be a great app if it had just a few more features such as these. As a rookie user to editing I feel like I picked up IMovie way faster then this app initially. This was used with an IPhone 10.
Login requirement doesn't make sense for this app
by DoesEveryoneHaveToHave_a_Nick on 2017/10/11 23:04
Update October 2017: Don’t be fooled, this app only has high ratings because GoPro used new Apple store policy to let app developers wipe out old ratings, without giving users the ability to see ratings for previous versions! Nothing has changed! This useless app will still require you to sign in. You will not even notice until you are in a foreign country or in the middle of the ocean. It will conveniently log you out for unknown reasons and you won’t be able to log back in. Shame on GoPro and Apple. The end for GoPro is near... How many one-star reviews does it take for you to realize that we, the users (and potential buyers of your future products) do not want to login to your cloud just to be able to control OUR cameras. I might be in the middle of the ocean when I'm trying to use it. Or I might miss an important moment while trying to login. Just drop it, no one wants it!
Very impressed. Super easy to use!
by Me22. on 2019/10/24 06:41
Just got the Hero 8 (upgraded from a hero 4 black). The app (on an iPhone XR) is very fast and easy to use. It’s actually easier to view, watch, and even fast forward through videos on the app vs. using my MacBook Pro. In the past the app has been slow and had bugs. But now it easily connects to my GoPro hero 8 and I can pretty much instantly scroll through all of the videos and dragging the bar at the bottom to scroll through is very smooth as well. I trimmed the video, added gauges to it, then airdropped it to my computer from my phone and it looks very crisp (I assume the image quality remained in 4K) Well done GoPro, this is a huge step up from the past!
Ehh plz be better
by Cool joking app on 2018/02/21 01:17
I get GoPro videos and I want to edit them and yes put music it it and some shade or brightness but all that waiting and stress before I can do it that’s the problem and it’s a big one to me because on Quik after it is downloaded to Quik and not my phone yet I go and press share and right after I press that it is in my photo library but I don’t get why I have to wait SOOOOOOOO long for it to be downloaded to my phone the other way it takes FOREVER and I don’t like that it really confuses me how fast it goes after downloaded to Quik but before plz explain why or fix it just PLEASE But anyway I am able to see my videos straight after it is recorded RAW so it’s good at that....
Falls way short for livestream
by iMamma on 2019/03/31 21:38
I wanted so badly to love the updates. I have used it without too much trouble for my Hero 5 black for years. I saw the updates for the live-streaming with Hero 7 black and took the bait. Sadly my first go was a complete failure. I did some testing at home and everything recognized and worked. Get to the game and it won’t recognize the WiFi or my hotspot for the livestream. So I ditch the livestream and just record and still had connection problems. I missed the first 3.5 innings before I realized it wasn’t recording at all even though I thought I was stopping the recordings and restarting it between innings. I’m giving 3 stars as it is likely the Hero 7 that is the issue but it all should work together it’s a package deal!😢 I am returning the Hero 7 and looking at other recording/livestream options.
Worthless feature
by Dan2737485839 on 2019/08/29 22:00
It would be nice if the app recognized that it was connected to my camera and didn’t bring up the ‘connect your camera’ screen while at the same time the app says ‘camera connected’. This locks the user out from actually using the app to control the camera and download media. In this instance it was working for a few minutes, as I was playing with different settings for a particular lighting condition, and all of a sudden it goes into this ‘connect your camera’ feedback loop when the camera WiFi is on, my phone is for sure connected to it, and the app itself says ‘camera connected’ on the screen where I pick between my different cameras. WiFi has never been GoPros forte, I have an older camera that none of the support staff can find a solution to resetting the password, so WiFi is not at all usable on that device. Incompetence makes it a worthless feature.
Login required every time it's opened
by SoCal BWKing on 2017/08/08 16:48
I just got my first GoPro a few weeks ago, and have used it 5 or 6 times. This app is fine once you actually get in and get connected. But that takes time and extra, completely unnecessary steps. For some stupid reason, you can't use this app unless you "Log in", and you have to log in EVERY TIME YOU OPEN THE APP. This is incredibly inconvenient and frustrating. Even if I have an internet connection, it is still several extra steps that do NOTHING for me. The only thing I can think of is that GoPro is collecting user info and selling it. What else could be gained here? Please, GoPro, PLEASE, remove that login requirement. It's so bad that I don't want to use the app at all if I can help it. Looking at other reviews here and elsewhere, I can tell that I'm not alone and that this problem has been going on for almost a year. So I don't expect GoPro to actually fix this problem.
Good camera maker, not great app makers
by simplyvince on 2020/08/29 15:07
Some great features like hilights but limited options for text and photos. I remember experiencing issues way back when this app first came out and thought I’d give it another try with my new GoPro. I experienced several different issues from a loading animation that wouldn’t go away even though the video already loaded and other buttons were responsive to it not saving my hi lights and adjustments. It’s a great app for quick and simple clips and text but not when you want to really edit and customize your footage/video. Lots of good stock audio options but more issues experienced when loading my music. No share options for 1080 or 720, 2 options for text slides excluding colors, and no uses a lot of battery since it plays the video every screen you go into; edit, adjust, trim, etc.
Gopro
by Nel000000000 on 2018/06/10 11:35
The app crashes a lot. Too often my videos don’t play. When i do an over capture it crashes and I have to do the entire process over again. Sometimes I go in to see my pictures and videos and they all have a triangle with an exclamation point on the thumbnails. Usually all the problems are fixed if I turn the camera off and I close the app on my phone. When that doesn’t work I take the battery out of the camera and wait a couple of minutes and put it back in and that’s how i get it to work. Too much struggle for a very expensive camera. I would expect a more responsive app
Don't like it hijacking the WiFi
by Mulsar2 on 2020/08/22 04:37
Other than the camera when connected “hijacks” the WiFi and you have to select your WiFi Network manually after each use of the app with the camera. Why doesn't the camera connect directly to your WiFi Network and transfer media that way to your device. The present way is cumbersome so every time you want to download your photos or videos you have to 1) open app 2) connect to the Hero 3) download the photos/videos 4) go to the devices settings and pick your WiFi Network so you can get email, etc,etc. And to boot this pseudo camera is not persistent so cannot just pick it the next time you want to download, you have to recreate it over and over again! Certainly a waste of time for users. Please fix GoPro!
Struggles on iPad
by McData UPNY on 2020/03/26 16:24
I’m a long-time user of GoPro cameras and this app. I don’t understand why I must keep turning my iPad from landscape to portrait and back again to get the app into landscape. Then, during certain actions, the app reverts back to portrait and I again must physically turn my iPad to portrait and back to landscape. I also sometimes have challenges connecting to the GoPro Max. It seems to stem from the Max reverting back to 5.0 GHz and must change it back to 2.5 GHz. Also it would be nice if the camera recognized when it is downloading content and would then remain on. Frustrating when the camera powers down for “non-use” when it is actually being used. Other than those, the app does what it is supposed to do.
Uploading to the cloud is a struggle
by Henduford on 2020/07/14 18:08
Uploading to the cloud is not consistent and will sometimes upload the same media multiple times on multiple days and then other media it won’t upload at all. There needs to be a way to select media to manually upload to the cloud using the App. The automatic upload would be great it if were consistent, but so far I have not seen that be the case. I have the Hero 8 Black and love it but the app and cloud experience have significantly lowered the overall experience. I also tried deleting everything from the cloud and starting over with a fresh slate. When I tried a manual upload of all the content on my camera it said. I media to upload. When I let the auto upload happen it did the same thing as before and I can’t seem to get all of my sd card media onto the cloud.
Locks everything up
by floorinit on 2019/05/20 02:54
When it works it’s ok. But it’s silly to me that when you control your GoPro from the app and delete a video only does it from the app not the go pro so then you have to go into the GoPro and delete there. I also recorded bunch of baseball innns and every time I hook to phone to load new media it lost connection 39 clips couldn’t ever get them to load to watch and I ended up going into the GoPro to delete the ones I knew I didn’t want and deleted some I did cause the screen was to small to see. Complete waste of 4 hours today. My sons a catcher only gets so many plays and the one out of 3 games today is now gone. GoPro locks up if you try to switch from video to video searching have to delete everyone before moving to next one. Probably be ok if I was connecting to a computer but trying wirelessly is not efficient for time. Only reason I gave it 2 stars
Frustrated and Disappointed
by BuckFeverHero on 2018/12/31 22:24
As I continue down the journey of life , I have realized that so many moments go past and are no longer available. I was hoping that my purchase of My GoPro Hero Five Black would change that. Up to this point with device, I have several set backs. 1st off the wireless receiver that came with unit was defective. I have received RA# and returned unit ,still waiting for replacement. In addition to that my app of Quik stories has a glitch and continues to shut off immediately following me opening app,why? Also it seems like the wireless connection to my Apple 6+ is spotty at best , Is there a resolution going into 2019? I am still a big fan .However , We are still waiting for the ability to capture those thrilling moments in our lives as you have so promised. Looking forward to GoPro 2019! Happy New Year, Jeff Goldberg
Worst App I’ve Ever Used
by AlisaBealessio on 2019/05/27 18:21
I love my go pro, and have had it for several years. This app however has been horrible from the start, and gets worse as my GoPro ages (it’s only 4 years old) and the app can not properly interface with it. Every photo I take in single shot mode appears as a burst in the app which makes it inconvenient to view them, and some images don’t show up at all, just give a error symbol unless I go to the edit feature or save it to my phone then it will display the image which is not corrupted at all. I have also had endless trouble with the date and time meta data which the app appears to change when I download the photo off my camera or save it to my phone. Overall, this app makes me not want to use my GoPro to take photos. Even as a a millennial who loves my phone, I prefer to connect my device with a computer than use this app.

Does not rotate on iPad.
by Dr. Notadoctor on 2020/10/26 05:32
If this could rotate I would give it five stars, but the app does not rotate on iPad which is frustrating when I am using the iPad attached to a keyboard. The auto upload feature works well as does controlling the go Pro showing a live preview photo, when I put my GoPro on a selfie stick and use the iPad to look at the preview, I can look around corners like a periscope. I also really wish that I could use the Apple Watch to control the go Pro. Finally the app crashes occasionally, not a ton but enough for me to feel that a three star review is more appropriate than four. I’m using a new iPad Pro so I’m pretty sure it is the app and not my device causing the problem.

Poor support
by Owlguard on 2020/10/25 17:36
Read all the people who can’t get the files downloaded on PC. Try to get tech support, laughable. Spend hours trying to save your precious videos. I would have chuck the camera at them if they were here.

Impossible to upload videos
by lemonboard on 2020/10/23 15:03
I'm as tech-savvy as they come, I've gone through all of the steps with success (pairing, connecting, etc), and am able to fully control my GoPro from the iPhone app. Both my GoPro and iPhone are running the most up-to-date versions, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app multiple times. Yet no matter what I do, no matter how hard I try or how long I decide to wait, it is IMPOSSIBLE to upload a video from the camera to your iPhone. Absolutely, 100% impossible. Photos sync almost immediately and with no issues (which assures me that the connection is definitely there). But after multiple days of tinkering around with videos, I now know that it will never happen for me. When I go to upload a video, it starts and looks promising. But after a few minutes, it all but comes to a halt, and the "calculating" time shoots through the roof. I'm trying right now to upload a lousy 7-minute video, and it's stuck at probably 10% and is claiming to take hours yet. Last night — while on freaking airplane mode, with both the camera and iPhone plugged in and successfully paired — I thought that it would HAVE to finish uploading if I were to let it go all night long. Nope! It actually LOST progress! How is that even possible?! That's a single 7-minute short video with nothing holding it back, syncing over 7 HOURS, and it's not even remotely close to being done yet. It's at probably 5% as I type this, seven HOURS later. Why does this app even exist?? If you can't upload your videos (even short ones), why develop an app at all? And after reading about a thousand company responses to this issue throughout the internet, I'm sure they'll just tell me to turn my phone on and off as if that ever actually does anything. Or to re-download the app yet again. Dear GoPro, just update your app with the millions of dollars you are worth so that people can enjoy it without hassle. This is simple stuff here. Because as of right now, my GoPro is worthless to me. If I can't actually access and edit my videos, why use the camera at all?
Mixing audio

Hard to figure out, never owned one before the hero 7. Shutting off and turning on a bit of a pain. I have figured it out. Use it for hunting. Works well when you know what your doing. Came with no instructions. All you tube.

Am I Crazy?
by Farts of Mothra on 2020/10/21 18:18
Or is it 2020 and this app only mainly works in portrait mode? I didn’t even know that was possible. I’m even more baffled why an app centered around video would not assume that landscape is the primary orientation most will want to use this app on an iPad. I have so many question! Fix this, please. Like 7 years ago. UPDATE TO DEVELOPER’S RESPONSE: Okay, so landscape only in viewing mode. That makes perfect sense... for a phone. Not a tablet with a screen that goes up to 12.9” and is possibly docked to a keyboard to use with a mouse/trackpad when doing any video editing.
Very slow to download
by 1237455626 on 2020/10/21 16:54
I am having a problem importing a video to the desktop
Please add landscape support
by Ianturk on 2020/10/21 00:57
My iPad is often docked in a landscape orientation when I’m not holding it, so it would be great to see landscape support in all views. Otherwise the app makes it easy to control my GoPro, sync media, and edit clips. Edit: Lowered to 2 stars since a whole new GoPro has been released and the app still doesn’t support landscape
Slow and crashing
by edmarhockey on 2020/10/20 15:58
I’ve got GoPro 8 black. So far app and camera are not friendly. App crashes often and I have to re-start... not sure if I’ll keep it. May need to return to the store unless things get better...

Garbage
by k41z0ku on 2020/10/19 23:55
The app has corrupted dozens of my videos due to its failure to upload anything to the cloud, don’t waste your time, offload onto a pc
Ok app
by brogill247 on 2020/10/19 23:15
The app is ok. It’s not super user friendly so it takes a lot of time to figure out how to upload to the cloud from the app since you cannot do it manually, once set it up so the app does it automatically when it decides is the right time. You cannot splice videos together to make anything longer than 7 minutes so if you are only making a video with nothing but the best action shots it’s great, otherwise you have to save it to your device then upload into another app. Overall it’s an ok app. Definitely not the one app you can do everything with your GoPro.
GoPro doesn’t recognize the app
by br-freedive on 2020/10/19 21:59
I Purchased this up in July it is now October and GoPro still cannot make it work with my iPhone 11. I try to load videos into the cloud and tells me I have to subscribe and then I try to subscribe again and it tells me I’m already subscribed. GoPro blames the problems on iTunes and the app creators. I have contacted GoPro’s customer service over a dozen times and I’m tired of getting the same answer. After dealing once again with GoPro support, I would highly recommend Sony action cameras, I have friends that have them and the reviews from professional motorcyclist are all 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

DONT USE GOPRO PLUS
by shottafelyfe on 2020/10/19 00:53
Media on the app wont automatically upload to gopro plus cloud. Please for the life of me dont use gopro plus. The app it self is very buggy also
Could be so much better
by Elnicknamo on 2020/10/18 21:49
I’m going to review both the GoPro app and GoPro Plus in this review but I’ll keep them separate. The App: The app is so-so at best. Yes it’s great that you can control the camera through it but it so often loses the connection and then you can’t start or stop the recording when you need to and that can be a huge pain. I can’t tell you how much great footage I’ve missed and how many times I’ve had a full memory card or a dead battery because I couldn’t stop it from recording when I wanted to. Obviously this is only an issue if you are mounting it in such a way that you can’t physically reach the camera to stop and start the recording manually, which I do often. This is the general overarching problem with GoPro and their products that I’ve encountered.. great features but glitchy and unreliable. All the image quality in the world is meaningless if your camera freezes and stops recording. I haven’t used the app for editing much but I haven’t found it particularly easy to use and there are many simple things you can’t do with it. I do however like that it’s pretty easy to preview your recorded videos on it from your camera and they have a nice feature for taking screenshots from your video which works well. GoPro Plus: If this was just a review for plus it would absolutely receive one star instead of 2. It is garbage! I am so frustrated and annoyed with this stupid service!! They advertise that your videos and photos will automatically upload to the cloud and that you can upload any amount. I loaded a bunch of videos to the app about half of which have uploaded to the cloud and the rest simply aren’t uploading. There is no way to manually ask the app to upload them it’s all supposed to happen automatically and if it doesn’t do it there’s nothing you can do. Also, some of the videos that indicate that they’ve been uploaded to the cloud aren’t actually there in the cloud. Then bizarrely some of the dates attached to the videos seem to have changed after they were uploaded to the cloud and are no longer shown in the correct order which makes it super confusing to even try to figure out what has and hasn’t been uploaded. The service is just a total mess and super unreliable. I would absolutely not trust Plus to hold your photos/videos if they are important to you. I really wish GoPro would spend more time and effort of quality control in all their products, it’s really disappointing.
Great camera! Ultra lame app
by alonzozilch on 2020/10/18 15:18
Why ? You think with GoPros revenue they could have a better interface for uploading videos and pics. This app makes me feel like I am back in the days of Windows 95. I have a Mac book pro and iPhone 11 and it’s still a hassle. I’ve been trying for a day to get it to upload my stuff to the GoPro plus cloud and no go!!!! Super frustrating. Makes me not want to use the camera anymore and just deal with my iPhone11 for action vids. Do better GOPro. Might have to rebrand yourself GoPoor. Besides the awesome quick customer service they have it has been a windows 95 flashback nightmare to get my vids to the GoPro plus cloud. After my customer service that was pleasant I still can’t get it to upload my stuff to the GoPro plus cloud. Seriously GoPro you have millions at your disposal and it’s 2020 DO BETTER !!!! Invest in app developers instead of buying good reviews. Most frustrating tech thing I’ve been through in years.

Hard to manage
by nkmdknsnlsnkjenjkneff on 2020/10/18 02:48
I’ve had this app for a while and at first it wasn’t bad but then it started glitching and started getting slower to the point where my new media doesn’t show up, and now it won’t even let me see my media on my new go pro but I do like the camera I just can’t use it

It takes ages to download videos from my camera to my phone and it keeps failing . So I had a chat with customer service . The agent asked me to update the camera and on the website I everything just like the agent told me and then I clicked on next step to go on . But the website won’t go any further !! It stopped and failed !! I tried ten times and it failed ten times !! I told the agent but he or she claimed that No everything is fine with our website !!!!! So wait a min , is that what you offer guys ?? Slow app slow website and bad costumer service !! Shame on China shame on GoPro

It crashed a few times while making my video but when I rebooted the app it had saved where I was at so I didn’t lose anything. I’m a total novice at video editing but it was easy and did what I wanted it to!
Crashes frequently
by bboyle27 on 2020/10/14 07:44
Great features and super useful app, but it’s very prone to crashing which has become a major source of frustration.
Why is it such a long process
by learnerK on 2020/10/14 03:45
I have to have the app, have to have the GoPro plugged in, have to pay monthly $50, have to download each pic to the app which takes a long time, then download again onto my phone. why is it so many steps when other cameras download straight to your phone. makes me want to sell my GoPro and buy a professional camera. It should be faster and the editing and video making should be a charge but not a charge just to download my pics. and not at $50 per month.
Great app to make small videos.

Great, and I want a split tool
by Ls_ga on 2020/10/07 21:08
I think GoPro is better than Yi because my GoPro HERO7 has better quality than my Yi Lite. My Yi Lite doesn’t really have good quality display but my HERO7 has very clear quality and at least I can control my HERO7, which I can still do on my Yi Lite. And thankfully, the GoPro app understands that my iPad is a iPad, but the Yi Action app thinks my iPad is a iPhone. And the Control tab’s interface is much easier to access than the Home tab on the Yi Action app’s. I wanted a split tool so I can split my videos into two separate clips so I can make one clip have text and the other not have text

The app worked perfect up until 3 days ago. App says it’s connected, but as soon as live preview screen starts to load, the entire app shuts down. iPhone 8+ with latest firmware on camera. Update as of 10/6/20: I tried restarting phone and resetting phone network settings. I also removed link to camera in the app and added it again. Says connected, but still shuts down entire app when I try to load live preview screen. Even tried deleting the app completely, and reinstalled.

I had issues early on with a GoPro 5 getting it to work between camera and iPhone. That being said with our GoPro Hero 7 Black and now the new 9 things are fine. Occasional connection issues that resolve quickly have not been much of a problem. We use the cameras daily in our work and they have proven to be a valuable asset in getting things done. With the concerns over Covid 19 we have been able to get training videos shot and into folks hands quickly. Hopefully the system continues to work properly.
10/10 would recommend

Control GoPro needs better landscape support, especially for iPad Pro. Needs batch export option to Files App not just batch exporting to Photos App. Would be nice if video files could save location data. Other than this, I like the app so far, it’s reliable and transfers files efficiently.
Great app overall. Not a waste of your time!

No Preview When Recording, Really?!
by JoelKristianson on 2020/10/02 23:52
I never write reviews on apps. As a matter of fact this is my first ever. I cannot believe that GoPro released a product that’s supposed to be “bigger and better” yet you cannot watch what you’re recording with the Hero 9 Black. That’s ridiculous for something so expensive. The preview is disabled as soon as you start recording and resumes as soon as you stop recording. This camera is going back! That’s one of the main features I wanted. Should have done just a bit more research before buying. Sad........

This app crashes non stop. After failing multiple times to receive media from my camera to the app, this app crashes in the middle of editing. Not only do I have to forget the camera and set up again, I have to reboot the app just to edit the same video I was just working on. This latest update has really screwed this app. Maybe it’s not up to date with IOS14. Please devs,fix this!

GoPro review read all!
by Ph0enix1020 on 2019/05/12 20:27
I mean it’s a good app unlike everyone else says Because then they probably don’t know how to use it (read all) I have a GoPro even though I know that I’m probably not gonna use it much only on trips and vacay’s but i still keep it just in case... let’s talk about the features okay we’ll Im first off you can live stream which is awesome you can see what your camera is seeing in live time even with sound! so it’s like a mini security camera second off you can download pictures and videos from your GoPro at any time but warning it does take a while which I don’t like but after a while you download it/them also when you first get the app it will take some time to start it up but then things will run smoothly. I normally don’t do reviews this is probably my first time doing one so I made it a bit long and thorough but what this whole passage was saying is, it’s a good app and even though you might not use it that much it still helps.
GoPro you can do better
by hcf97 on 2020/03/30 22:38
I have had go pros for years. I’ve mostly just edited my videos on my computer but I decided with the shorter videos it was easier to just edit it on my phone. That’s where the issues started. So the app is very straight forward. You can see what your camera sees, control it, and rewatch your videos. Great, fantastic. But then I downloaded the Splice app (also made by GoPro) and when I went to make the edit there were no videos. I go back to the GoPro app and I had to download the videos onto my phone which is ok for the most part except for the part where I have a 16gb phone so definitely too small to save my videos. So I go back to splice to try to find the GoPro app through it to make it easier...... and it doesn’t. How do you make three different apps and no have ANY OF THEM communicate with on another. ESPECIALLY the editing apps with the GoPro app! Also why do I have to download the videos off of my camera, taking up space on my phone, then download it again to my gallery, also taking up space on my phone. So I’m double downloading videos to just use them once to edit them delete them. If you make an editing app it should communicate with the GoPro app to be able to get the files from it to be able to edit. THATS A MARKETING THING TOO! I’m disappointed because I love the company of GoPro but this is ridiculous. There isn’t anything support can do for me so don’t offer it. This is an app design issue that can be fixed easily.
Constant media upload issues
by wildbill707 on 2020/04/16 20:06
Using my Hero7 Black with my IPhone 8 has been troublesome. I have just recently started using the camera (3 months now) and I’ve been taking photos and videos and uploading them to my social media without any issues. I just took a video recently and it will not appear on my camera roll no matter what I do. Just spent One Hour and 30 Minutes on the phone with customer support troubleshooting countless different methods in order to be able to upload thise specific videos to my phone and it is not working. I took the video in 1080P 30FPS so there shouldn’t be a compatibility issue. I’ve tried saving the videos onto my computer, reformatting the SD card, and then re-uploading the videos back to the SD card to upload to the app to no avail. Even if it will begin to upload new media my old media is useless and I fear this is going to become a common occurrence with this camera and app. I know this app has had its problems but I can’t determine if it’s the app or my camera so I’m at a loss. It’s hard to be happy with a device when after 3 months you can't upload your media onto the only compatible app that works with the device. The customer support for GoPro is really great at least and they tried their best but you would think that the app developers would put some more effort into making the media transfer as seamless as possible. For a $300-$400 camera that should not be too much to ask.
Go pro could do so much better
by Jerry jeep on 2019/09/22 02:02
Love the H7 hate this app, ok so the media pulled from the GoPro saves to its sand boxed library and you have to then export it again from there to your local files, older version did not act this way. Gets very disorganized because it does not tell you that you sent it over you just get one in the app and now one in the photos section. A little search shows it “does not double your data” but uses some kind of image shortcut hack, doubtful! You can export the same pic/vid many times and it just adds more complexity duplicating itself. No way to tell that it’s on your device so you have to look in two different locations for the same media, and you can make many copy’s that will just be scattered around in random creation order on the iPhone photos side, huge fail from a marketing idea which keeps you trapped using there branding style editing software which is terrible, if it was good enough to work well it wouldn’t be such a big deal and would welcome the sandboxed media, but I have to burn it through there firewall to unlock it and basically after I sort out my few projects on this iPhone I’m just going strait to the pc from here forward! Please don’t make this harder than it should be GoPro! Can’t even share albums inside your app, don’t try to limit us in your corner we know the grass is greener on the other side...
Great features in theory, but glitchy and almost unusable
by saleen8927 on 2019/11/15 00:24
GoPro (and the app) have some great features, and the video quality of their cameras makes gopro one of the best choices out there (although I understand others are quickly catching up). The app isn’t all that user-friendly, but I can live with that. The problem is that the connectivity between app and camera is terrible. I tried two different cameras and two different phones with the same results. It connects successfully maybe 25% of the time. Closing out of the app and restarting is usually fixes the problem (not always), but it’s very frustrating to never know if it will work or not. If you’re hoping to be able to start the camera remotely to quickly catch action, don’t count on it. It also constantly loses connectivity randomly, so don’t expect to rely on it for a live view experience. The auto upload feature is a great idea, where it automatically uploads your clips to the cloud when it connects to your home WiFi (or whatever WiFi you set), but in practice it never does it automatically. Beyond that, their solution for organizing and editing video is subpar and definitely not meant for a pro or anyone who does more than upload a few vacation pics here and there. GoPro might have the name recognition, but that’s where it stops.
New app is poor with quik integration
by Reviewer245335 on 2019/08/02 22:35
Up until the recent update making videos was easy and flawless. But with the new quik integration it’s weak compared to the separate quick app. First the highlights is probably the worst part. You could previously slide the highlight marker to the exact frame now it’s guess and check I have to go back to the quik video to see if it even tagged the right spot then when it’s not right I have to go back in to edit mode. It’s back and forth on every clip and takes me 2-3 times longer to edit now. Old app tag the frame ... next clip ... done, already miss it. The music selection seems to be less than before as well. Why default to 4:3??? Does anyone even have a 4:3 display device these days. And why not default to original size?? Maybe I missed that on the old app but I can’t make a video in the new app with out either cutting off parts of the sides or top. I hope this is just the first try and the app will improve and that the peeps at GoPro even read these reviews. I just upgraded to the new 7 from a 5 and the new app is the only reason I regret spending the $$$. It was so much better in the old app.
Amazing app. Does everything
by Dwave27 on 2019/08/20 11:02
GoPro has finally made the ultimate app. This app lets me make Quikstories that look great very quickly and I’ve basically stopped bothering with using Final Cut Pro to edit because of the ease of use and how great the videos turn out. My only complaint would be that gopro please support 4k resolution output from the app! That’s the only downside. I rarely shoot 4k and take full advantage of my Hero Black 7 because I know the final QuickStory will only be 1080 anyways... I joined Gopro Plus and LOVE how the gopro automatically uploads everything and anything new to the cloud whenever I plug it in. First time I plugged it in I had 128gb and it successfully uploaded ALL of that content, although of course it took awhile. Now I don’t need to worry about deleting videos to save space, etc. it’s all in the cloud forever and easy to access.
Interesting toy, not a professional tool
by Faux tog on 2019/07/29 03:40
I find the software for both the Camera (Hero5 Black) and the GoPro App to fall sadly short of their advertised capabilities. The camera software is tediously slow and disconnects from the app randomly. Pairing it with the app is time consuming at best (when it pairs) and frustrating when it won’t. This process could be greatly improved by removing the need for password when pairing (or at least make it optional) and getting rid of screen lock altogether or at least increasing the time before it locks itself. I find myself having to unlock screen three to four times when switching between photo and video settings and reviewing media. The net result is I spend FAR too much time fiddling with controls when I should be taking pictures. This is my fourth GoPro, and in fairness, each has been better than the last. The integral water proof case is awesome and the image quality is steadily improving. I give this three stars because the GoPro system has a lot of potential, but right now the camera controls and app don’t live up to the hype.
The app is ok when it works...
by jrodmckis on 2020/05/25 18:54
I just don’t understand why I constantly have connectivity issues. And it takes forever to preview or upload a video. I use the app to upload off the camera and download to my phone I have over 25gb of available space on my phone and 1.5tb of iCloud but it still tells me there’s not enough available space for 1-2 gb videos. I bought an brand new iPad sitting here and cannot preview a video... tried 5x disconnecting the camera reconnecting closing the app again and still I can’t preview or even download a 7 min video on a brand new iPad with over 20gb of space. I even thought about using the GoPro cloud subscription to help with this problem, but if I cannot even download or preview a 7 minute video on the app I don’t think I will invest anymore into the GoPro products. Btw I am using a GoPro hero7 white camera that I wouldn’t recommend at all. My 7 min video is still “waiting”’the whole time I typed this review on my iPad sitting on my lap it hasn’t even started to download. Only reason for 2stars is that when the app works it is ok. Only ok...
If I could give 0 stars I would

The gopro itself is a decent camera but the way it interfaces with this app is enough to make me want to sell it. This app is the least intuitive piece of software I have ever used and coming from such a large company thats just sad. I usually spend about 5-10 minutes trying to connect the camera (the only camera i ever connect) and when i finally do the gopro times out and turns itself off, disconnecting. Meaning i have to press a button on the camera every 4-5 seconds just to keep it alive, and when you’re trying to download something to the app that will take 20 minutes, you could see why this is maddening. The camera can be turned on and sitting next to the phone and it still takes 9 tries to connect it. Sometimes i have to connect through wifi, sometimes bluetooth, sometimes straight through the app. And not being able to give my camera a personal name? Just make it so only i can see that name and it wouldnt affect gopro in any way. This app behaves like one that is wayyy in beta. And it’s been like that for years now. Fix this gopro.
Spotty Connection
by Life with Steve on 2020/09/23 14:58
EDIT: GoPro developer responded with steps to change Wi-Fi bands from 5 GHz to 2.4 GHz. This didn’t help. Additionally, there’s a new “update” that’s supposed to solve this issue. Seeing that my GoPro doesn’t connect, I had to manually download the update (which is a whole ‘nother can of worms). After installing the update to my SD card and installing, I still can’t connect or preview what the camera is seeing. This is a total waste of an app and at this point, based on the issues with the app, and lackluster performance of the camera, I wish I’d bought the Insta 360 One R. I’ve had both my GoPro Hero 8 Black, & the GoPro app since May/June of 2020 and this app has consistently gotten worse. Initially I had issues with it connecting while I previewed certain shots but as soon as I would start recording, it would drop the connection and I’d have to start over. Now, it doesn’t even connect to my GoPro; it’ll power it in but won’t display what the GoPro is displaying, nor will it connect in order for me to view what’s on my SD card.
Very confusing
by mkl323 on 2018/06/21 04:18
All I wanted to do was make a cool movie out of some short GoPro clips from vacation . There are barely any instructions at all. I’ve been messing with this for hours and still can’t figure it out . I can’t understand a few things. If I take a 2 min video and go back to watch it in the app and then out of that 2 mins I cut a clip out that’s 15 secs long why does that clip not save to the app so I can delete the 2 minute one. What’s the point of having the ability to cut and highlight clips and where do they save ??? It makes no sense to me that if I take a long video and go back to watch it and decide that I only want a minute of it that it doesn’t save anywhere . Then I tried quick and I can’t get my GoPro videos go transfer over . When I go into it and scroll down to GoPro it’s only showing 2 videos . I bought the GoPro so I could take cool clips when I’m away or fishing and make a movie out of them. Sorry , but if the 1 video that did transfer over Quik took like 10 seconds of it and made a movie if you can call it that. So far , it’s really aggravating.
Poorly designed, flaky, frustrating
by Xyzzy999 on 2019/06/27 01:33
The app has tons of problems and irritations. For example, I’ve spent the hour annoyed with: - Connectivity problems. Connecting to the camera sort-of works over WiFi, but this forces a disconnection from WiFi with Internet. (Despite much fiddling, Bluetooth seems to not work for transferring images.) - The app is designed to download pictures into **GoPro’s** cloud service, but I don’t want to manage + pay for yet another cloud service. I want my pictures with my other iPhone/iPad photos... but putting them there seems to only be possible one photo at a time, using many taps, via the “share” interface. Ugh. - The app randomly switches the iPad into portrait mode, making it painful on an iPad with a keyboard connected. - Images display initially as a very low resolution thumbnail, then after a *long* delay a better version appears, making it a really tedious process to figure out which images are good vs. blurry. The high quality images don’t seem to be pre-fetched or cached.
Big issue
by bjerding on 2018/08/20 17:53
So I used to use my Go Pro Hero 4 session on this app and it worked great. I tried to use it yesterday and also today and still am unable to connect my Go Pro to the application. I have “ “forgotten” the WiFi network from the Go Pro and then tried to connect again. That didn’t work. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Nothing has worked. I keep getting stuck on the screen that tells me that I need to go connect the WiFi in my phone settings. So I do that and make sure it’s connected. Go back to the Go Pro app and a pop up comes up saying, “Oops, that didn’t work. There was a problem; try reconnecting to your camera’s WiFi in your iPhone’s settings.” And I am given the options “Get Support” or “Got it!” I have tried both options. Can’t find any new support on it... I have already followed all of the steps listed. Multiple times. My iPhone is also up to date and I have an iPhone 8 Plus. I really hope this gets fixed soon or else I don’t know what to do with my Go Pro.
Great Mobile remote for Gopros!
by .ZamaK. on 2020/07/16 00:42
I love every little feature about this app especially the fact that you can view your cameras media and control it and see what the camera sees on your phone live! My one little peeve is that there is no “Are your sure” warning when your about to download footage from you camera to your phone you might accidentally tap trash instead of download when in a rush. It would be great if a message would pop up when you tap trash that’s says “ are you sure you want to delete these files?” It would be great if this was added just to make your footage a little safer so you don’t accidentally delete footage permanently when quickly trying to download it. Other that this the app is great and I use it all the time! Highly recommend using this app if you have a GoPro.
Not as efficient as it used to be
by KTSurfs on 2019/06/15 20:41
I used to use the GoPro App all the time when I lived in Hawaii to capture all my surf and snorkeling and hiking pics. It was amazing because I could do everything wirelessly with my phone and never have to plug into a computer. It used to be fast and all my pics and videos downloaded fast. Nowadays, I don’t use it as often, but definitely in the last year I noticed that App has really downgraded in quality and efficiency when I’m downloading my pictures from my GoPro. My pictures do not all load. I can never see all of them and if they do appear in view, it’s blurry. I updated my GoPro with the latest firmware. My app is updated. Batteries on both devices are charged or plugged in. I don’t understand why the app pic download is so terrible now. I don’t understand why it has to use cellular data. I should be able to stay on my WiFi connection and still connect to my GoPro to get my picture and keep the speed of WiFi without having to use data. I connect to my Google Home and Chromecast with my phone and stay on my WiFi.
Missing features for fusion
by Mickie MANG on 2018/03/24 18:13
I bought the fusion on 3/12 and have been loving it. I hated how long it took to render videos on my computer then found out I could do them on my phone or iPad. It’s been way easier and faster using the app. After using it I realized it’s missing 2 key features that’s needed for the app and another one that would be nice to have. 1: joystick for editing. When I edit with my fingers by sliding the video it causes 2 huge issues. Knocks the video off it’s level, then I have to twist it back, and panning isn’t smooth. Using my phones accelerometer isn’t always ideal. Sometimes I can’t stand or spin to get the whole 360 degrees of video. If I want to edit on a plane or on the train, or anywhere in public, I can’t. 2: Add a panning feature for photos. Having a 360 camera is great, and there are times I want to show the whole 360 pic without making a tiny planet. In order for me to do this, I have to open the image, press screen recording, go back to the app, and spin in a circle. Once again a joystick would be nice since the pan is wobbly. 3: Split pic for selfies. There are cameras on both sides of the fusion, this allows me to catch both the action and my reaction. It would be nice if there was a way to export 2 views in 1 pic/video without having to create 2 exports and putting them together using another app.
Disappointed Gopro App for Gopro Max 360
by Igorlopeslimamarinho on 2020/07/03 05:17
I bought a Gopro Max 360 this week July 1, 2020 because I found the way to shoot 360 degrees very cool, but I am very disappointed with the limitation of the mobile application, I can't even make a slow motion or increase the speed of a selected part of my video, a simple task that any video editor does. Inside the app there is a type of Gopro Studio that makes short videos that is ridiculous to limit the time of the video with just over 40 seconds of maximum duration, that is, I would presume to cut my videos in several parts to be able to make a single video if my video is longer. Editing a song and choosing the selected part I want to cut is a joke. I will soon test the Gopro application on a Computer, but I already think that it will be very limited too. I have always heard of Gopro and never bought one, when it comes to capturing images I believe you are the best but I thought you were already very evolved in the issue of editing these images in your apps and honestly I did not expect this unpleasant surprise .
In critical need of bug fixes
by JaysonB. on 2018/10/02 15:58
The only reason this review isn’t getting one star is because if it was to function correctly I would have no complaints, I really love the user interface and what it is trying to achieve. However, ever since I got my GoPro Hero4 Black and downloaded this onto my phone, The app has progressively been getting worse. It’s gotten to the point where I take pictures but can’t see my pics once I go to my library. In order to see my pics, I’m forced to download all pictures individually onto my phone which takes up even more phone storage. A lot of times the app will cease to function, And I have to restart everything all over (Turn off Wi-Fi, restart Camera, force close the app). I ask that you fix this ASAP because it really takes away from the joy of using my GoPro and since I rely on the app as my viewfinder, and prefer taking pictures over video, this problem is just unfair and unacceptable to me as a customer. Please fix! Will rate higher once you do.
Pro Videographer Review
by Mercury is my last name on 2019/05/05 18:09
As a professional videographer I highly recommend the go Pro hero seven along with the go Pro app and Quik video maker. For every day social media posting this is the absolute easiest, fastest and most professional looking video on the market. Especially the hero seven hyper stabilization!! I would not recommend shooting much video at night as your video can get pretty grainy but any daytime shooting or sunset shooting or shooting that would not allow for a big rig this is the way to go hands down. Big props to go pro for creating such amazing user-friendly applications to go along with the amazing Hero 7 Black. I have never written a review on any app but after using this one I had to say something. Next will be music videos I make using the app. It can’t be done!
Really wish the attachments such as the speedometer was like it was in early 2019
by Seth15c on 2020/03/30 02:53
I love the camera and loved this app. It is amazing being able to throw the stickers for speedometer and maps right into your videos. I will say however I am kicking my self for updating the app in 2020. The features are less than what I had on the 2019 app. Plus the speedometer looks lame and childish now. Before it looked like a race car speedometer and you could see the degrees on the compass. I’m disappointed with the update. Also, I use to be able to size them all to the size I wanted. Now the g-force is huge and in the way. Even if I double tap to move it. GoPro if you could go back to allowing us to size the stickers and move them wherever the user decides like you did on the 2019 app I’d give you five stars and be much appreciative. Thanks for a great camera. But please how can I get the old stickers?
System crashes
by VSanz80 on 2018/07/31 16:34
I like the image of the camera but when taking photos it takes a lot to save the images. Also for some reason very often the camera frozen not letting me press on any commands. I have to turn it off and restart it to be able to preview the video. When loading the videos for preview it takes a long time and if I want to replay a video it frozen again. When I’m using the app with my iPhone sometimes won’t let me start recording saying the camera is in use. Regarding the battery life is better to have an extra battery. In my case (since photos take forever to save) I prefer recording a video but battery doesn’t last long. 2 to 4 hours turning off the camera in between videos to save battery life (it’s a pain). I do like the under water images the body of the camera and the options in resolution with the image stabilization.
GoPro isn’t there yet. Sad.
by Derivative97 on 2019/07/09 12:52
First, the Hero 7 Black takes beautiful action videos in daylight. However, The overall experience is clunky with the camera itself, the mobile app and the desktop version. It’s actually quite disappointing. Do I really need a master’s degree in computer science to shoot videos and edit them? Okay, that’s a bit of hyperbole but you get the point. I have top-end gear and I expected the GoPro experience to be seamless. Shoot videos, no weird settings/defaults, just point and shoot like an iPhone and have the basic magic happen. Plug it into my computer and use the app to import and edit the videos. Simple request. Instead, the desktop app imports only SOME files (using the approved high-end SD card), their desktop app can’t play it’s own videos (when VLC does — it’s a $3,000 laptop so it should on GoPro’s app too). Time lapse imports every frame as a separate file on the desktop app and plays them with massive stutter in the newest mobile app (iPhone XS max). Default settings on my laptop/phone. In addition, the extra functions on the GoPro camera itself are clunky — having to hit buttons twice, accidentally hitting buttons and having the thing go to hell, having the camera off and having it turn on if I accidentally hit the record button. The entire vision of what the GoPro and software does and how the camera/workflow integration is done needs to be revisited from the ground up. Period. Period.
Used to be a one star for me but NOW!!
by vivnev3 on 2020/01/13 02:47
Before I knew how to properly use this app I was so frustrated with it. I didn’t think you could edit in the app at all except cut clips, BUT OH WAS I WRONG! All I had to do was download video/picture into my media and VOILA editing features as far as the eye could see! Sorry for making a bunk review when I just was uneducated about the way the app worked! Love my GoPro! it’s come v handy with us building our tiny home development. fueled our instagram/YouTube pages with the videos of how blissful -and irritating- it is to build your home from ground up. Looking forward to many more tiny home builds, designs, workshops, laughs, tears, and for sure puppy snuggle videos the go pro will capture!
UPDATE: NO STARS FOR THIS TIDDLYWINK APP
by Shonamutt on 2019/05/25 12:44
All I want to do is save a clip from a video to my camera roll. Been trying for over an hour. Very poor instructions (still looking for them). When I’m fishing I run video then snip the clips I want. Very hard on iPhone. UPDATE: Here is GoPro response to my review: How to do it To grab a still frame from a video follow these simple steps here below: Tap the Media Library icon in the bottom right hand corner of the app Select the video you want Click on the Photo Icon next to the Scissors icon on the bottom of the app Scrub through frame-by-frame to the image that you'd like to share Select "Next" in the upper right hand corner Select where you'd like to share it to, and you're all set! Totally off topic. I already figured this out. GoPro please reread the original review. I want an easy way to SAVE MY STUFF (COMPLETE AND WHOLE FULL RES VIDEO AND PICS) TO THE CAMERA ROLL ON THE IPHONE OR IPAD. DOWN GRADE THE REVIEW TO: Zero stars App is designed for children who need to be told what to do and how to do it not for people who are capable of thinking for themselves or — heaven forbid — actually know what they want to do. I like my camera but the App is crap. I want more cameras but won’t buy GoPros if the app is not fixed soon. All I want is to easily save the full image and video with all metadata to camera roll. Should be simple many other apps can do this. Just a simple download and save that’s it and that’s all I need.
Love the Camera, Disappointed in this App
by Super SARS on 2018/12/13 17:48
I am a long time GoPro user and have had multiple camera’s over the years. And to be fair, I have always been happy about my purchases. But that was until I got my hero 5 black and started trying to use it on the app. Here’s why: I film videos on my GoPro using the GPS feature so I can track my speed or location while recording. It is a great feature. Unfortunately, you are only able to retrieve this data if you download to the GoPro app. I would have no problem with this if it actually worked. But every time I plug my Quik Key into my iPad or other iOS device, it ends up not previewing the files, being unable to download them and the app ends up crashing and closing. My app is up so date, my Quik Key is the newer one, my camera is updated and the SD card is formatted properly. And these aren’t even long videos! If I can, I am able to import to the a directly from the camera. Unfortunately, this kills the camera battery and takes so long. Overall, -The app always crashes -It isn’t comparable with the GoPro Quik Key -It is really slow You would think the app designed for an “ACTION CAMERA” would be better at actually doing the ACTIONS it is designed to do. This review saddened me to write because I love this camera. But GoPro, this is a fail and a big one. Even your own accessories don’t work with your own app. One Star rating until see improvements
Slow and frustrating
by The_Skip11 on 2020/08/08 07:34
The editing on your phone is great. Try to do anything else and expect to be frustrated for 24 hours. Uploading footage to the cloud is slow. Downloading footage to the app is slow. And deleting stuff on my phone so there is space is slow. It’s really frustrating that the cloud isn’t better. Especially since I pay $5 a month for it. I wish I didn’t have to download footage to my phone in order to edit it. I want to be able to do that directly from the cloud. But that’s not an option so again, expect to be frustrated and for it to take 24 hours. I have to set up my GoPro overnight plugged in so it can fully upload my daily videos to the cloud. And even when I wake up sometimes and check it, it errors out and I only get maybe 5/20 videos I was trying to upload. It needs to be better than this.
Crashing updates as usual
by rlittke on 2019/09/30 03:34
I've owned several gopros and as usual, the apps and updates are always crashing, the cameras rarely work without crashing. Keeping them paired is always a problem. Updates fail windowless, fail to install properly and using a computer is no better. Update : bought the new GoPro 7 and once again truly disappointed. I would have known better. First time underwater with the new water proof housing tested it before I went down turned it on took a 7 second clip and turned it off. Went for my dive, and saw a couple of sharks at 60 ft. Went to turn on the GoPro, nothing, dead, tried several times. Got to the surface and pulled the Camara out, dry, tried to turn it on, nothing,dead, pulled the battery out,put it back in and it turns on and works fine. Hey Go Pro,want to tell me how I'm suppose to do that 60ft under water? Maybe you should work on that!? Wasted money once again.
GOPRO FIX THIS; Videos won’t download
by The Man5 1/2 on 2018/09/17 05:36
When I go to download the videos I recorded onto my phone using the app, it takes forever to download specific videos, and then when it gets to the end of the download, it says “converting your files to your quik story” and it sits there for a long time... one time I tried letting it sit for an hour and a half... it gets stuck. So I quit the download and open the app back up, and most of the videos I tried to download are not on the app. So I try to download them again, but when I pull down it goes straight to the “converting your files to your quik story” again. It won’t stop.. again, so I quit the app... again... the only way to get this to fix and download videos again, is if I delete the videos that never got downloaded. So my great shots I took have to be completely removed and never gotten to be seen because the APP WON’T WORK. This needs to be fixed.
May have damaged my SD card
by @lucia99 on 2020/01/08 06:52
I’ve been using this app for about a year since I got my Hero 7 Black. The camera itself has been glitchy and very disappointing but I had no issues with the app itself until recently. I was attempting to upload videos from snorkeling in Hawaii (I was very excited about the content) and the app immediately crashed. When I tried to open it again it said that I had no SD card. That was strange considering I had not removed the SD card yet. When I looked at my go pro and tried to view the media it said that there was a card error and all I could do was delete everything on it. Good bye cute turtle videos, so far GoPro has been nothing but a disappointment. Other than that however the app has worked pretty well, the videos I’ve downloaded in the past were smooth and quick to save.
Gopro app
by SoaR Gabe10 on 2019/11/30 04:11
First off I own the GoPro hero 7 silver. It is an exceptional camera but it doesn’t really matter too much because I do not use it very much other than trips and vacations. I do not necessarily think My camera quality is what it looks like in the GoPro hero 7 silver trailer/ GoPro videos. However the app is not good at all. It makes me connect to the GoPro WiFi which disconnects me to whatever WiFi I am using. It would be much easier if instead if WiFi, it was only bluetooth. I assume I am doing the process correctly but when I enter the GoPro app on my GoPros WiFi, when I connect to the camera, and look at the media on my phone, the media takes a while to load and a lot of time closing out the app. I decided to write this review because this has happened to me every time I load the media, and is even happening to me right now as I try to look at the footage from my recent trip.
Login Required - Insane Decision
by mancuj1 on 2017/09/04 10:31
Seriously, have you lost your mind requiring users to log in to use this app? I have been waiting a year to get this issue resolved and still no progress. I am going on an trip for 2 months and will not have international cell coverage while abroad. In addition, I am a pilot who uses your product during flight (where there is NO cell coverage). How do you expect your users to run this app with the asinine requirement of having to log in every time? A large percentage of your user base is remote & disconnected while using your products? Do you understand your user base at all? Maybe do some focus group testing PRIOR to modifying a functional working app just so that you can collect user data (which is none of your business to begin with). On a positive note, GoPro will have user data available to sell and market with - WHAT A RIDICULOUS, SELF SERVING, BRAINLESS & SHORT SIGHTED MOVE!!!! Fix this app by removing the login requirement!
Hilight tags are broken
by Diputswab on 2019/05/04 06:31
U can’t delete tags without using the desktop app. The tags usually miss the most exciting part and play the really lame stuff, and since you can’t edit this, it screws Quik up. Transfer speed is slow, which I found out the hard way is necessary because the desktop app often corrupts/deletes videos from the Hero when transferring (it’s a common problem, despite what card you use the software glitches and your videos disappear). the only way to avoid losing footage is to lethargically WiFi transfer each file to phone for backup unless you want to end up looking at a bunch of .LRV files in your DCIM folder. An avid user of both Gopro and Garmin action products, I can safely say that even though Garmin has flaws and isn’t as popular, they at least provide a complete hardware-software integration. Gopro software is always buggy and it feels like they give you the middle finger whenever commit to using it. I only keep this app for composing my shot and reviewing footage, but after 6 years of poor quality I’ve learned it’s better to just use the Remote and LCD bacpac + Extendercable instead of dealing with these shoddy apps. Remember, you paid for the camera, not the software which is all that matters to GoPro. NEVER trust GoPro to transfer files. Always back up to a separate storage device before you ever consider opening this app.
Great camera! Ultra lame app

Why ? You think with GoPros revenue they could have a better interface for uploading videos and pics. This app makes me feel like I am back in the days of Windows 95. I have a Mac book pro and iPhone 11 and it’s still a hassle. I’ve been trying for a day to get it to upload my stuff to the GoPro plus cloud and no go!!!! Super frustrating. Makes me not want to use the camera anymore and just deal with my iPhone11 for action vids. Do better GOPro. Might have to rebrand yourself GoPoor. Besides the awesome quick customer service they have it has been a windows 95 flashback nightmare to get my vids to the GoPro plus cloud. After my customer service that was pleasant I still can’t get it to upload my stuff to the GoPro plus cloud. Seriously GoPro you have millions at your disposal and it’s 2020 DO BETTER !!!! Invest in app developers instead of buying good reviews. Most frustrating tech thing I’ve been through in years.
First time

Just got my new GoPro and edited my first video. The App crashed a lot in the beginning. I learned I need to save often or it overloads the phone rams with all the sweet 4K footage. Some features were not available such as; I can add text to videos but it only appears in the beginning of that clip. I can create a highlight (short clip) but I can’t choose how long or short it can be. If I choose auto highlight and one part of the clip I don’t like because I was filming the ground I can’t just tell the app not to use the one specific highlight I have to manually do it even though I liked how the auto did it. Why!!! This could be a great app if it had just a few more features such as these. As a rookie user to editing I feel like I picked up IMovie way faster then this app initially. This was used with an IPhone 10.
Login requirement doesn't make sense for this app
by DoesEveryoneHaveToHave_a_Nick on 2017/10/11 23:04
Update October 2017: Don’t be fooled, this app only has high ratings because GoPro used new Apple store policy to let app developers wipe out old ratings, without giving users the ability to see ratings for previous versions! Nothing has changed! This useless app will still require you to sign in. You will not even notice until you are in a foreign country or in the middle of the ocean. It will conveniently log you out for unknown reasons and you won’t be able to log back in. Shame on GoPro and Apple. The end for GoPro is near... How many one-star reviews does it take for you to realize that we, the users (and potential buyers of your future products) do not want to login to your cloud just to be able to control OUR cameras. I might be in the middle of the ocean when I'm trying to use it. Or I might miss an important moment while trying to login. Just drop it, no one wants it!
Very impressed. Super easy to use!

Just got the Hero 8 (upgraded from a hero 4 black). The app (on an iPhone XR) is very fast and easy to use. It’s actually easier to view, watch, and even fast forward through videos on the app vs. using my MacBook Pro. In the past the app has been slow and had bugs. But now it easily connects to my GoPro hero 8 and I can pretty much instantly scroll through all of the videos and dragging the bar at the bottom to scroll through is very smooth as well. I trimmed the video, added gauges to it, then airdropped it to my computer from my phone and it looks very crisp (I assume the image quality remained in 4K) Well done GoPro, this is a huge step up from the past!
Ehh plz be better
by Cool joking app on 2018/02/21 01:17
I get GoPro videos and I want to edit them and yes put music it it and some shade or brightness but all that waiting and stress before I can do it that’s the problem and it’s a big one to me because on Quik after it is downloaded to Quik and not my phone yet I go and press share and right after I press that it is in my photo library but I don’t get why I have to wait SOOOOOOOO long for it to be downloaded to my phone the other way it takes FOREVER and I don’t like that it really confuses me how fast it goes after downloaded to Quik but before plz explain why or fix it just PLEASE But anyway I am able to see my videos straight after it is recorded RAW so it’s good at that....
Falls way short for livestream
by iMamma on 2019/03/31 21:38
I wanted so badly to love the updates. I have used it without too much trouble for my Hero 5 black for years. I saw the updates for the live-streaming with Hero 7 black and took the bait. Sadly my first go was a complete failure. I did some testing at home and everything recognized and worked. Get to the game and it won’t recognize the WiFi or my hotspot for the livestream. So I ditch the livestream and just record and still had connection problems. I missed the first 3.5 innings before I realized it wasn’t recording at all even though I thought I was stopping the recordings and restarting it between innings. I’m giving 3 stars as it is likely the Hero 7 that is the issue but it all should work together it’s a package deal!😢 I am returning the Hero 7 and looking at other recording/livestream options.
Worthless feature
by Dan2737485839 on 2019/08/29 22:00
It would be nice if the app recognized that it was connected to my camera and didn’t bring up the ‘connect your camera’ screen while at the same time the app says ‘camera connected’. This locks the user out from actually using the app to control the camera and download media. In this instance it was working for a few minutes, as I was playing with different settings for a particular lighting condition, and all of a sudden it goes into this ‘connect your camera’ feedback loop when the camera WiFi is on, my phone is for sure connected to it, and the app itself says ‘camera connected’ on the screen where I pick between my different cameras. WiFi has never been GoPros forte, I have an older camera that none of the support staff can find a solution to resetting the password, so WiFi is not at all usable on that device. Incompetence makes it a worthless feature.
Login required every time it's opened
by SoCal BWKing on 2017/08/08 16:48
I just got my first GoPro a few weeks ago, and have used it 5 or 6 times. This app is fine once you actually get in and get connected. But that takes time and extra, completely unnecessary steps. For some stupid reason, you can't use this app unless you "Log in", and you have to log in EVERY TIME YOU OPEN THE APP. This is incredibly inconvenient and frustrating. Even if I have an internet connection, it is still several extra steps that do NOTHING for me. The only thing I can think of is that GoPro is collecting user info and selling it. What else could be gained here? Please, GoPro, PLEASE, remove that login requirement. It's so bad that I don't want to use the app at all if I can help it. Looking at other reviews here and elsewhere, I can tell that I'm not alone and that this problem has been going on for almost a year. So I don't expect GoPro to actually fix this problem.
Good camera maker, not great app makers
by simplyvince on 2020/08/29 15:07
Some great features like hilights but limited options for text and photos. I remember experiencing issues way back when this app first came out and thought I’d give it another try with my new GoPro. I experienced several different issues from a loading animation that wouldn’t go away even though the video already loaded and other buttons were responsive to it not saving my hi lights and adjustments. It’s a great app for quick and simple clips and text but not when you want to really edit and customize your footage/video. Lots of good stock audio options but more issues experienced when loading my music. No share options for 1080 or 720, 2 options for text slides excluding colors, and no uses a lot of battery since it plays the video every screen you go into; edit, adjust, trim, etc.
Gopro
by Nel000000000 on 2018/06/10 11:35
The app crashes a lot. Too often my videos don’t play. When i do an over capture it crashes and I have to do the entire process over again. Sometimes I go in to see my pictures and videos and they all have a triangle with an exclamation point on the thumbnails. Usually all the problems are fixed if I turn the camera off and I close the app on my phone. When that doesn’t work I take the battery out of the camera and wait a couple of minutes and put it back in and that’s how i get it to work. Too much struggle for a very expensive camera. I would expect a more responsive app
Don't like it hijacking the WiFi
by Mulsar2 on 2020/08/22 04:37
Other than the camera when connected “hijacks” the WiFi and you have to select your WiFi Network manually after each use of the app with the camera. Why doesn't the camera connect directly to your WiFi Network and transfer media that way to your device. The present way is cumbersome so every time you want to download your photos or videos you have to 1) open app 2) connect to the Hero 3) download the photos/videos 4) go to the devices settings and pick your WiFi Network so you can get email, etc,etc. And to boot this pseudo camera is not persistent so cannot just pick it the next time you want to download, you have to recreate it over and over again! Certainly a waste of time for users. Please fix GoPro!
Struggles on iPad
by McData UPNY on 2020/03/26 16:24
I’m a long-time user of GoPro cameras and this app. I don’t understand why I must keep turning my iPad from landscape to portrait and back again to get the app into landscape. Then, during certain actions, the app reverts back to portrait and I again must physically turn my iPad to portrait and back to landscape. I also sometimes have challenges connecting to the GoPro Max. It seems to stem from the Max reverting back to 5.0 GHz and must change it back to 2.5 GHz. Also it would be nice if the camera recognized when it is downloading content and would then remain on. Frustrating when the camera powers down for “non-use” when it is actually being used. Other than those, the app does what it is supposed to do.
Uploading to the cloud is a struggle
by Henduford on 2020/07/14 18:08
Uploading to the cloud is not consistent and will sometimes upload the same media multiple times on multiple days and then other media it won’t upload at all. There needs to be a way to select media to manually upload to the cloud using the App. The automatic upload would be great it if were consistent, but so far I have not seen that be the case. I have the Hero 8 Black and love it but the app and cloud experience have significantly lowered the overall experience. I also tried deleting everything from the cloud and starting over with a fresh slate. When I tried a manual upload of all the content on my camera it said. I media to upload. When I let the auto upload happen it did the same thing as before and I can’t seem to get all of my sd card media onto the cloud.
Locks everything up
by floorinit on 2019/05/20 02:54
When it works it’s ok. But it’s silly to me that when you control your GoPro from the app and delete a video only does it from the app not the go pro so then you have to go into the GoPro and delete there. I also recorded bunch of baseball innns and every time I hook to phone to load new media it lost connection 39 clips couldn’t ever get them to load to watch and I ended up going into the GoPro to delete the ones I knew I didn’t want and deleted some I did cause the screen was to small to see. Complete waste of 4 hours today. My sons a catcher only gets so many plays and the one out of 3 games today is now gone. GoPro locks up if you try to switch from video to video searching have to delete everyone before moving to next one. Probably be ok if I was connecting to a computer but trying wirelessly is not efficient for time. Only reason I gave it 2 stars
Frustrated and Disappointed
by BuckFeverHero on 2018/12/31 22:24
As I continue down the journey of life , I have realized that so many moments go past and are no longer available. I was hoping that my purchase of My GoPro Hero Five Black would change that. Up to this point with device, I have several set backs. 1st off the wireless receiver that came with unit was defective. I have received RA# and returned unit ,still waiting for replacement. In addition to that my app of Quik stories has a glitch and continues to shut off immediately following me opening app,why? Also it seems like the wireless connection to my Apple 6+ is spotty at best , Is there a resolution going into 2019? I am still a big fan .However , We are still waiting for the ability to capture those thrilling moments in our lives as you have so promised. Looking forward to GoPro 2019! Happy New Year, Jeff Goldberg
Worst App I’ve Ever Used
by AlisaBealessio on 2019/05/27 18:21
I love my go pro, and have had it for several years. This app however has been horrible from the start, and gets worse as my GoPro ages (it’s only 4 years old) and the app can not properly interface with it. Every photo I take in single shot mode appears as a burst in the app which makes it inconvenient to view them, and some images don’t show up at all, just give a error symbol unless I go to the edit feature or save it to my phone then it will display the image which is not corrupted at all. I have also had endless trouble with the date and time meta data which the app appears to change when I download the photo off my camera or save it to my phone. Overall, this app makes me not want to use my GoPro to take photos. Even as a a millennial who loves my phone, I prefer to connect my device with a computer than use this app.
