Wireless Update Fail  Zambiniti  1 star

"Something went wrong." That's all the explanation you get and no matter how many times you try; turn off/on or delete and reload the app, it's the same story. *Now where's that poo emoji?


so bad  Shh-Laoji  1 star



Amazed  InMeITrust  5 star

Loving my hero 5 camera. Not experiencing any issues people are complaining about


Cannot use app without logging in with GoPro Account  MrBilly  1 star

For any photographers using this where they may not have cell service- in remote areas, on the water, in buildings or areas with low reception- know you cannot use the app without logging in. Even if the app says you only have to login once every 30 days, if the app auto-updates, your login credentials may not transfer, and it will force you to login again. If there is no wifi signal or cell service, and it prevents their service from connecting, then you CANNOT USE THE APP. Do not recommend this at all until they fix this.


Severely Disappointed  Jhyoung84  1 star

Got a GoPro Hero 5 for my birthday. Incredible camera, horrible app functionality. Definitely a let down. I really hope customers are being heard and action is taking place immediately.


First review ever and is a negative  ArtFrias  1 star

First of all the old GoPro app was free and it work. this piece of poop I never get it to work with my GoPro hero 4 is useless plus I got a $5,99 charge to my account every month for what? In app purchase? this app is trash pure am so mad my next cam may not be a GoPro because of this app"


Not Functional  FlyingMuleRider  1 star

Spent hours messing with this and was relieved when I read other reviews that no one has got this working. Time to return the whole package!


Difficult to connect  cjs327  3 star

App is not so easy to connect to camera.


.  Satoota16  3 star

With my old GoPro, it took ages to connect it. Then I got a new camera and it connected immediately! I think it has something to do with the type of camera.


Login just to control?!  Monkey_butt11  1 star

I've had a Hero 3 Black for a few years and USED to be able to just open the app and control my camera remotely. I had t used the app in a while and when I went to use it today I was greeted with some login screen. Why do I need to create an account and then login to it just to control my camera? Lame. App just got deleted and the camera will hit eBay soon.


Steamy pile of crap!  Sliperyfist  1 star

This app really is the worst. Maybe for the newer GoPro cameras it's better but for my hero3 it's been nothing but frustration.

Please Fix this problem

Realllyyyy???? I spent $500+ today on this go pro for the hero 5 black and won't even connect to my phones... tried to reset connections etc. This is crazy now I'm ready all these reviews... made login through FB and still won't connect... GOING TO MY BEST FRIENDS WEDDING IN GULF SHORES AND CAN'T EVEN SYNC MY PHOTOS TO MY PHONE!!!!! Guess I'll have to bring computer with me now... ridiculous!! People spend good money on these and you can't have a functioning application with it....


GoPro app is worthless!  mjrowley  1 star

Will not let me connect to my new hero 5 camera. Failed right before my daughters last school choir concert. Thanks a million GoPro! You all need to fire your app team!

No bueno  Mr diaz  1 star

Unable to transfer videos from camera to phone. App appears to not work. Spent 30 min. Trying to figure it out. Waste of time and dead beat app. Just like the short lived batteries that come included with GoPro.


Old one was way better  jack999lyd  1 star

You used to be able to hook your phone up and be able to look at the photos and videos and now you have to reset your password and that means reset your GoPro and it's really hard and annoying.


Go Gone  fotodarb  1 star

Shame to stop using a nice camera because of HORRIBLE app, buying a cheaper cam with a functioning app. Oh and GoPro, please read these reviews if you don't want to be yet another tech company that went away for not listening to its customer base.


Junk  fiveoboy01  1 star

Where's the old connect and control app? Login? For what? GoPro can't figure out why their stock is in the toilet. LOL.


Garbage  Kariimichellee  1 star

Requires login now, a year after I made the password. Won't let me reset. In an endless loop of trying and failing to connect the camera.
