Hey thrill seekers, we know when you’re busy attempting a double black diamond for the first time you want to save that first person view with your GoPro. And if you’re reading Windows Phone Central you probably want to control it with your Windows Phone.
Well, we still have a few weeks left before we get any official GoPro companion app for Windows Phone, but in the meantime check out this third party app called GoPro Control.
GoPro Control is meant to give users an interface to control a Wi-Fi enabled GoPro. Great for adjusting settings on the fly without having to access the camera. With GoPro Control you can:
- Turn camera on/off
- Start/stop recording
- Switch between modes (burst, video, photo, time-lapse, etc.)
- Change all settings (camera name, resolution, frame rate, ProTune, white balance, etc.)
Sounds like it is identical to the upcoming official GoPro app, the one catch is that live preview is not yet supported in this app. As you can see from the screenshots above, the interface itself is also very Spartan and doesn’t look as polished as the official GoPro app.
We’re working on getting one of the new fancy pants GoPros’ to test this and the upcoming official app out. In the meantime, keep in mind there is no trial for GoPro Control and it does cost money.
The app goes for $2.49 and you can grab it here in the Windows Phone Store, use the QR code below, or swipe right in our Windows Phone Central app.
Thanks for the tip Soikka!
