GoPro has upped its app game with the latest app release for both iOS and Android that gives users the ability “Control. View. Share.” their content with the world.

You can now use your smartphone or tablet to control every setting in the camera from the ability to start/stop recording to monitoring battery and storage levels; the new app gives you complete control over your GoPro. And with the live image preview you can now see what your camera sees, even if the camera is out of reach. This is huge!

Once you’re done capturing your epic pow slash, triple cork or local snow bunnies, you can instantly check out what you’ve captured to see if you got the shot. It wirelessly connects to your GoPro so that your footage or photos doesn’t take up space on your device. What makes this feature top-notch is the ability to browse and delete content right from your GoPro. For us, this is a must-have feature when we are on the hill.

After you’ve scoped your videos or photos, the new app gives you the ability to easily share it with the world though whatever social network you prefer making your friends at home extremely jealous. High five!

To get this to work there are a few options. You can upgrade to the latest GoPro Hero3 (any edition) and have it work instantly after a software upgrade. If you haven’t upgraded and you’re still rocking the GoPro Hero2, snag a Wi-Fi BacPac and after a quick software update you’re good to go!

Download the free GoPro app on for iOS or Android now.
