  • Files will not download to phone

    By End Phenomenon
    Have tried multiple times downloading 12 min files and repeatedly will stop downloading at 2 mins. No refresh button or pause only choice is to cancel and start over which guess what stops at 2 mins again.
  • Not pairing

    By Me2u4me4him2u
    Been having problems connecting the Hero 4 to this app it’s literally insane this needs to be resolved as I still can not connect the GoPro hero 4 to my phone. Tried multiple phones, deleting and re-downloading the app still says try again.
  • Tracking Account Required

    By siBob
    Must create an account which could be used in such a way they could track use and or what you record. This is not required if you just want to control the camera, a simple PIN generated on the GoPro screen could be enough to authorize the application until such time either a selection on the app or the camera breaks the trust.
  • Had to return my new GoPro 6

    By Baller chick
    My wife purchased the new GoPro 6 for my birthday so I could take it on a Hawaiian vacation. Day 1 time lapse of sunrise over Haleakala stops recording and when I tried retrieve the images I received an error message. After several calls into GoPro CS I finally got it and running. Day 3 snorkeling. All went well. Day 7 snuba diving all going great then it stopped working. Got out of the water opened up unit took the card out and battery. Replaced the battery tried to turn on and got the red light of death. I did not lose the images or the video of the 15 minutes it worked under water. I purchased an accessory for my hot shoe so I could take photos and record the whales and surfers. Completely Bummed.

  • GoPro app

    By Stonenberry
    I love the idea of the GoPro app but when it comes to making YouTube videos the GoPro app does not download the videos fast enough.
  • Won’t work

    By Jr1503
    I use to like this app a lot. Lately I won’t let me watch my videos or download them. Seems like it’s a common occurrence. Very disappointed
  • App is crap, camera firmware is crap, customer service is crap

    By Aetolia
    App Login required. 2 issues connecting EVERY TIME I try to use it. Need to resync it every time. A huge hassle and now I’ve the GoPro listed about 8 times in the list of Bluetooth devices, all listed with the same name Hero 6 Loud annoying beeps with turning on and off, takes a long time for it to turn off, beeps sporadically while recording Inane decision to drop price of GoPro hero 6 by $100 and not offer customers who purchased it for full price ANYTHING AT ALL. GoPro Company No customer service. No email contact, chat function says reps are “too busy” to even put me in the queue. Do not waste your money. Re-selling on Craigslist at a massive loss.
  • Not able to stop recording

    By the_audience
    Beside the requirement for a login, which is terrible, my biggest issue with the app is, that I am able to start a recording from the app. But I’m not able to stop the recording because of a loading spinner. For me a real no-go when mounting the camera on a helmet.
  • Stop making me sign in n

    By Giantshtoom
    This is stupid. I was out on a hike and didn’t have reception. Couldn’t use the app at all. Worthless.
