Who have an android cellphone. I have the GS3 and bought a usb to micro usb adapter from amazon for a couple of dollars. I can now watch the videos from my go pro on my phone screen. Saves buying the lcd backpack and the screen is much better

Whenever they actually get that app out the problem should be solved for all of us.

I have been waiting a LONG time for the damn Iphone app to come out. Go pro is really dragging their heels on this one.

One would think they would have the app ready before they advertise it on the wifi backpack. Almost bought one yesterday, really glad I didnt, because it would be useless.

They baited me into upgrading to gopro2s bc of the app and the f***** hasnt been released yet since coming out in june. Im so pissed that I have used my gopro but once bc im not going to switch btwn the lcd and wifi pack while out on the water.

Im seriously looking into the new sony actioncam thats comin out and sell off all my gopro mounts & cameras.

My husband pops the card into a card reader that connects to our ipad but it is a pain in the ass for sure, it sucks when you realize the head is cut off on your video!!!

I'm going to have to look int the Sony action cam. The digital stabilizing should make the video a lot better

I have to admit I love the video from the GoPro.

Anyone else think the wifi remote's battery lifespan is lacking, seems like the remote goes dead way before the camera battery does

I think GoPro is getting ready to release a new model maybe with the wifi built in/ lcd and some of the other features the Sony cam is boasting. The LCD and battery bacpac both went clearance Sunday which in my experience indicates new models. There was also a significant price drop on the Naked HERO a few weeks ago...

Dont mean jack if they dont release the app!! ive had gopros since day one...it amazes me how they always and I mean always seem to delay their new products & updates and in this case the wifi app.

Drag your heels: http://www.usingenglish.com/referenc...our+heels.html

I don't know, maybe I'm gettin old and I use some old sayings you young guys don't know?

Either way, that App should have been out a long time ago. It was the entire reason the wifi backpack was appealing and I won't get to use it once this wake season.

Also I heard there is a new Gopro coming out in 2013. Has all the features built in(wifi, lcd). Kind wish I hadn't bought a GP2 and wifi pack.

The black edition - one with wifi and the wifi remote is $399. The silver edition is $299 - that has wifi but no remote.

Does the touch backdoor allow the touchscreen to be used while still remaining waterproof?

Well now you're just asking too many questions lol

But yes its waterproof touch backdoor, also comes with standard door and skeleton door.

***touch features will not work with HD hero & HD hero2***

hahaha sorry! It seemed silly for me to consider buying a touchscreen led if i cant use it cuz i dont want to take it out of the case. Thank you for answering! yeah im still working with the HD hero from 2010. I love it so much =) but i think i will hop up to the black with an LCD soon. I'm most excited about the wifi.

I'd love to see some posted examples with this new GP3. I'm especially interested in the "narrow" setting and what it is capable of doing. I've considered getting a GP2 for some time but resisted primarily as the lens is too wide. If I shoot Fro the boat for wakeboarding, the rider is a speck on the screen. Frankly my iPhone does a better job. The video quality isn't as good, but at least the lens format isn't so wide that you can't see the rider,

I'll definitely be buying myself an H3 for Christmas. I'm impressed with the 4K resolution in a $400 camera, but what has me REALLY excited is 720P at 120fps. There's gonna be a lot of videos with crazy smooth slow motion churnin' out of my edit suite next summer!

That was my thought exactly! I really have no use for the 4k but I'm still impressed it's in there. The 120fps is what's up.

I wonder if they will make the new style of housing available for the H2

I don't think I will be upgrading my H2 anytime soon. Not super thrilled with the support from the company. Broken many cases over the past couple years. The local rep told me to get ahold of the company to have them help me out with replacing them after I told him I had just been buying them from a local shop. They ended up basically telling me to keep buying the cases. My response is eff that. Make your cases more durable than the flimsy plastic bs

Jason how are you breaking them? I'm not smashing mine on the ground but I've fallen on boxes snowboarding and the gopro has saved my face. Curious how much stress you put them under.

Not trying to put myself on a pedistol by any means but a buddy and I brought back the handle mount 2 years ago after over a decade of the original idea

After lots of riding with the camera mounted to the end of the handle line they seem to not hold up to the water pressure

I snagged a Hero3 Silver Edition today from Best Buy. I hope to test it out tomorrow. I'll probably still get a Black Edition when they are available.

I'm wondering how long it will be before someone hacks the Silver to run the Black firmware. I thought I read somewhere that the hardware is the same but I could be wrong.

Sorry not an IPHAD guy. Besides the company doesn't want to pay for iphones.

I can load it on my ipod touch but I don't want to carry one more thing around.

Man, the iPhone app needs a lot of work! I can't believe it took them this long to come out with such a terrible UI and buggy app.

Mine crashes almost every time I try to enlarge the preview. It would be usable as is if it were stable.

Ok. I just read the app reviews and apparently while the app will work with the Hero3 once I updated the FW, it's not supported until November 12th.

I don't understand why it would work at all if it were going to work so poorly.

Really? They had one? The BBY I went to had the tag for it but only had Silver and White.

Yeah talked to 2 stores both had all 3 editions and sold out of blacks but still have others.

The gopro app works fine on my gopro2, at least it did last week till i sold it

Look at the Contour+2. I think it's a better value than the GoPro and much better size, shape and has all the stuff that GoPro doesn't seem to offer.
