Basic Instructions for App on iphone?


Are there any basic instructions on using the iphone app (i7)?  I can connect to my old Hero3+ but am not sure which buttons do what in the app.  Today I tried to trigger a recording and all I got was "Camera is busy" so  I assume the camera was not in the proper mode.  I'm feeling kind of lost but all I can find is instructions on connecting teh WIFI.

Re: Basic Instructions for App on iphone?

 

Hi @supervista82452,

 

Please check this: https://gopro.com/help/articles/Block/Getting-Started-with-the-GoPro-App

1. You can control the camera in any mode. 

2. Just press the start and stop icon on the app.

3. It's on the app. 

4. You cannot turn on and off the camera using your phone. 

5. You can view the videos using the app and you can download them as well. 

6. Yes you can delete them. 

7. Just pair your phone and camera. Open the app and try to check all settings and menu available. 

 

Regarding instructions there are a lot of video tutorials on YouTube and on Support/Community Website. 

 

You can also contact our Customer Support team via phone or chat if you need real time assistance.

 

Regards,

-Jay

Hi @supervista82452,

 

You can check any YouTube tutorials on how to pair your camera to any iPhone.

They have the same steps though.

Or check this: https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/How-to-Pair-the-Camera-with-the-GoPro-App

Re: Basic Instructions for App on iphone?

Pairing has instructions and works OK.  It is the other stuff I struggle with.

  1. What mode must the camera be in to be controlled by the app?  How do I know it is there?
  2. How do I trigger start and stop record?  
  3. How to simply view what the camera sees?
  4. Can I leave the camera in WIFI mode and turn it on and off with the app? Will that kill the battery?
  5. Can I view videos on the camera through the app or do I need to download?
  6. Can I delete videos on the camera with the app?
  7. If I can do these things how?

It seems that there should be some real basic instruction sheet.

 

Thanks,

 

Dan
