Re: why does gopro app only work with iphone

Hello, @colinu48. The GoPro App is designed to work with mobile devices. If you would like to access, view, and edit your GoPro footage using your laptop, you may use any of these programs

Re: why does gopro app only work with iphone

Hi Mariustanyaa, thanks for reply. I have GoPro Quik & Studio on my laptop for editing by either attaching camera via cable or by inserting memory card.

What I would like to know is, why can you only stream pictures from Hero 4 black to a mobile phone when this done using wifi, my laptop has wifi so why not have an app for Windows?. This is not a gripe just a question as I really like my camera and would like to use it to its full potential.

Thanks again

Colin

@colinu48, desktop programs were designed differently than mobile applications. We appreciate the feedback. We'll relay this information to the team in charge. Let us know if anything else comes up.
