Re: Location services for connecting to an app?

"...the app doesn't collect any personal user information..." and also "the check is in the mail..." and furthering that train of thought "I promise not to  _ _ _ in you..." HONESTLY WE AT GOPRO PROMISE!

 

I assume you mean GoPro is still "missing the point" because they still don't have a flipping clue about the issue and why they are experiencing attrition. Sometimes I wonder how such "intelligent" people can be so "stupid" and retain a job in the modern day workforce?!

Re: Location services for connecting to an app?

The only reason that this is not required on an Iphone is that apple wont allow it. They want to own the personal data collected. Now apple have been more firm on this than google. This is why I dont use either of the two.

It is correct that on android location is NOT needed to connect to a wifi network or a bluetooth. It is cheap and stupid to even try to convince users of anything else. Im sorry gopro, the camera is fantastic but you just lost it all. Never ever ever again will I purchase a gopro product.

The most fantastic thing is that this is not a bug in android as some suggested. You as a providor can choose not to.. or allow an option not to. But no..

Pretty.. weak..
