GoPro 2.0 App – New View and Share Features

by Brian Mullin on August 4, 2013

Control. View. Share.

It
took GoPro an extremely long time, but they finally updated their App
with the capabilities to view recorded footage, and download those files
to your smartphone or tablet, for both viewing and sharing via several
media formats, including email, Instagram, Facebook, etc. The foremost
one for myself is the in the field viewing feature, since previously,
the only alternative was to use their LCD BacPac to look at recordings.
In addition, you can now easily delete footage, which was a bit of a
hassle since it required going into the camera’s menu system.

Note:
You’ll need to update your media device with the new App and your
camera with the latest firmware to make everything work properly.

For
viewing, deleting and copying recorded footage, you navigate to the
Connect+Control screen and tap the media icon (four blocks), which
brings up the GoPro Media display. You can tap on any of the media files
to bring them up for viewing. The video mode has buttons for copying,
reverse, start/stop, forward, delete and a nice slider, while photos
have copy and delete.

You
can also tap the Edit button from the main GoPro Media screen, and
choose specific file or select all files for deletion or copying. Once
you choose the files for copying to your device, you can choose high or
low resolution (only low for videos), and the copying will begin to your
device’s memory.

Once
the files are finished copying, you can navigate to your media device’s
menu system, and view and share the footage as desired. For some odd
reason, you don’t have any share capabilities if you go directly from
within the App to the media device’s albums? For photos, you can share
it with more social media entities, including email, messaging, Twitter,
Facebook, etc., while videos can be emailed, messaged or sent to
YouTube (some of the options are specific to the media device,
additional Apps and operating system).
