GoPro Application Hits Android, Remote Controls Daredevil Cameras
GoPro made Android users jealous when it offered iOS users an app for remote controlling its cameras, but now it also offers Android device owners such an app. You can find the app in Google Play Store, with the same features as the Apple counterpart, that include remote control, video previews and daily highlight clips.
The app is available for free, takes up 9.3 MB of space and requires Android 2.2 and up. Using the GoPro app you can control your GoPro camera remotely, including the full settings of the recording device. You can also get a remote viewfinder or preview on your Android device screen for easier shot framing and other functions like that.
The GoPro app is only compatible with WiFi BacPac-enabled HD Hero2 cameras. GoPro recommends you use Android 4.0 or newer versions on devices remotely controlling the cameras. The problem with the older devices is the inconsistence in video streaming frame rates. So, next time you go snowboarding, you may want to download the app from here first.
