GoPro App Now Available for Free Download

SAN MATEO, CA (October 9, 2012)- GoPro’s new mobile app is now available for free download from Apple’s App Store and coming soon to Google Play. Compatible with GoPro’s best selling HD HERO2 camera, the GoPro App enables full camera control and live scene preview for easy shot framing on smartphones or tablets. The app also provides daily GoPro Photo of the Day and Video of the Day updates, serving up the most current and engaging GoPro content while you are on the go.

“The GoPro App gives our customers more creative control and convenience than ever before,” says Nicholas Woodman, GoPro founder and CEO. “Being able to use your smart device to remotely turn on and control your GoPro, seeing what your camera sees, opens up all sorts of interesting new use cases. We’re excited to see the inventive ideas our customers come up with. As if getting Photo and Video of the Day sent to your smartphone wasn’t already cool enough!”

Example GoPro App features that expand the HD HERO2 experience:

• Full camera control, including: Power On/Off, Recording Start/Stop, and all Mode settings

• Live scene-preview prior to and during video and photo capture

• Real time monitoring of the camera vitals including battery life and SD card capacity

• Sync GoPro camera date and time to your smartphone or tablet

• Daily GoPro “Photo of the Day” and “Video of the Day” updates

Subsequent releases of the GoPro App will enable streaming playback of videos and photos from the camera to a smart device, sharing of photo and video content from the camera to social networks, controlling of multiple cameras, and streaming live video from the camera to the web.

“This is just the beginning of our efforts to expand the versatility of our cameras while making it easy for people to share the incredible footage they capture with their GoPros,” Woodman says.

In conjunction with the GoPro App, GoPro is also releasing Protune, a free professional video mode for the HD HERO2 camera. Protune delivers professional content creators more flexibility and creative control than ever before with cinema-quality enhancements including higher data rates, higher dynamic range, neutral color, and support for 24 frames per second video capture. Protune is included free with the latest HD HERO2 camera software update available here.
