Require the Gopro App for Hero7 but with Android 5

Hello,

I have a hero7 and want the app as a remote control but I only have Android 5. Can anyone point me to an apk or a suggestion on getting the correct app? I can get an apk for hero6 but it doesn't work, obviously. Maybe a better 3rd party app out there?

Cheers

Re: Require the Gopro App for Hero7 but with Android 5

You'll just need to keep searching for that APK file, you'll probably want one from around October of 2018 (although I'm not sure if that is compatible with Android 5.0).  The only other program I know that might work is MYK for GoPro but again, not sure if that's supported on Android 5.0.  You may just need to bite the bullet and upgrade your phone or buy a cheap tablet that runs a later version of Android.
