Is there a better app?[ New ]
I have a gopro session 5 black that I have been using for about a year. All I want to do is to start and stop recording and view the live screen once in a while to make sure it is pointed in the right direction using my mobile app. I am using this in an airplane to shoot videos while flying.. But the app has never been reliable. The connection is flaky most of the time, and it spins the wheel for a more than a minute to connect. Most of the time it fails to connect. and i have to try a few times before a connection is established. The device I am using is a Motorola Moto G phone, but I have also tried with the Samsung Galaxy Tab A with similar results. When I minimize the app and come back later, it starts the connection from scratch again and it takes a long to re-establish. The camera has the latest firmware (verified using GoPro Quik desktop app), and the Android app is also up to date. Obviously this is a problem when I am flying the airplane. Is there a better software for this? I don't need the editing capability of the GoPro App. I just need something to view the screen, and start and stop the recording. Please let me know if there is a better alternative.
