Ratings and Reviews
Well intended, poor execution
Connecting a Hero 5 to record training training videos of sales presentation and provide folk presentation feedback. App connects and I can control the camera, which is great, but it won't stream video preview to my Macbook Air. Gotta get that fixed folks. Also would love the app in a future version to stream the video files to my hard drive rather than the camera’s micro SD card to eliminate a step in the workflow. Would be very handy
Video preview on Hero 5 causes crash in version 2.07
Let’s face it, my expectations were low given the reviews, but heck, for $3.99 it was worth a try.
It took me a while to figure out how to connect my Hero 5. You have to connect to the WiFi network provided by the GoPro for it to work.
Unfortunately, when you attempt to turn on preview the app crashes. I have send the crash info to Apple, and hopefully this problem will be fixed soon. I have not tried changing the settings via the app.
not worth it
I went on a 3hr off road and started the application, it said it was recording,
but when I connected my gopro to my MAC, there was no video, nothing,
wasted money, DONT BUY. I know the gopro is working as I use it all
the time for making video’s of my off road, but this program did NOTHING.
I will use my other program that never lets me down, tried something
new, should of known better. Once again DONT BUY.. I wish I could
write the owner to let him know how upset Cam
