Official GoPro App Launches for Android, Control Your GoPro Camera Right From Your Phone

Owners of the go-anywhere and do-anything GoPro cameras will be excited for this news today. GoPro has launched their official application for Android that lets you do everything that you can on the camera, on your Android device. If your GoPro is Wi-Fi BacPac enabled, you can use your phone as a remote viewfinder to see what your lens is seeing and then take pictures or video with just a click.

There are a few catches however. The app only works with certain GoPro cameras and they suggest using the app on a device with Android 4.0 or newer for best production. Other than that, if you’re looking to get some nice video of your snowboard runs, hit the link below for the download.

    Doesn’t work with stock up to date Razr Maxx. It just freezes and closes the app.

    The app works on my stock Thunderbolt and Hero3 White fyi… might be more buggy then a 4.0 though, but I don’t have enough time on it.
