I'm beyond furious at the SIGN-IN requirement to use the app

Camera:  Session.  iPhone 6 with Capture app.

I've calmed down a little bit, but I nearly threw this camera in a trash can earlier.  That SIGN-IN screen popped up again, then my password didn't work!  "Internal Server Error".  Couldn't log in.  Couldn't use the app.  I was standing on a bridge in the freezing cold, in disbelief that this awesome camera was useless at the moment because GoPro requires me to sign-in to use the app.

 

The FIRST time the sign-in screen appeared, I was on a boat with no Internet connection.  Camera was useless that day too.

 

I've seen no satisfactory explanation for this sign-in requirement, only anger from users.

 

I have no confidence that I will be able to use the app the next time I start it.

 

Hey GoPro?  Fix this please.

Re: I'm beyond furious at the SIGN-IN requirement to use the app

Haven't you heard? It's too improve customer experience and our use of all our GoPro devices from one single application. Doing a stella job aren't they?

It's got nothing to do with data mining our information or the movies and images we take with our cameras.

Got to run now, I have to login so I can setu my GoPro to film the boys prepping the pigs for an early morning flight.
