Go Pro HD Hero 3 App and Camera Update

The app & camera update for the Go Pro HD Hero 3 (Black) are here!

Go Pro App Update

This Go Pro app update will allow you to operate your HD Hero 3 Black Edition from your smartphone or tablet. I needed to update both the app from iTunes and the camera from Go Pro.

To Update your Go Pro app

If you have the app already installed, do this:

  1. Open the app store on your phone
  2. Go to updates and find the Go Pro app
  3. Hit "update"

If it is not yet installed, find it in the iTunes app store or (Go Pro site for Android) and it will install the latest version.

Note: Before updating, remove the battery from the camera and write down your serial numbers that are inside the camera. You will be asked for these during the update.

To update your HD Hero 3 Black Edition

Go to the Go Pro Website and follow the instructions. Takes about 10 minutes to complete and then you are ready for lots of Wi-Fi fun : )

Thanks Go Pro, this awesome little camera is now complete!

This update will make life a lot easier when filming or taking photos with the Go Pro HD Hero 3. Being able to control any camera from a Smartphone or tablet is amazing because the possibilities are endless.
