Not really needed on a Mac

Don’t really need this
if you’re using a mac, this program is not needed. Simply plug in the SD chip into a SD/MMC/USB holder and insert into a USB port. Quicktime will download the files onto your mac,and you can make most minor adjustments such as horizontal or vertical flips.

Browser shows no files to download

I purchased this solely to be able to download files instead of the hassle of finding all the micro card stuff. The camera info correctly shows the number of files on the unit but the sofware shows nothing to select from in the browser window. This software does not allow therefor ANY files to be either viewed or downloaded from my Hero 3 but it will control the camera. Since the only reason I purchased the software was for file downloading via wifi and since this function does not work at all on my Hero 3 I rate it poorly.

Great App. Works Perfectly.

Great app, works as intended. Gave me the option to use my Mac instead of my iPhone. Controls are the same as GoPro’s iPhone app. I like the way it give you links to download the GoPro files directly with using your browser.
