Official GoPro app now in the Windows Phone Store

GoPro HERO3: Almost as Epic as the HERO3+

WindowsPhonino reports that the Official GoPro app is now in the Windows Phone Store.

The app allows Windows Phone users to control their GoPro cameras remotely over WIFI and even have a video preview from the cameras on their phones.

The app features:

  • Full control of all camera settings
  • Live, remote viewfinder/preview on your Windows Phone for easy shot framing
  • Access to our Photo of the Day & Video of the Day channels to keep you in touch with the latest from The GoPro Network

goproqrThe app is compatible with HERO3® White, Silver and Black Edition cameras as well as Wi-Fi BacPac™-enabled HD HERO2® cameras and requires your Windows Phone 8 handset to have at least 1 GB of RAM.

Nokia Lumia handsets have a special present – the ability to overlay your phone’s camera view on top of the GoPro live view and take photos that are saved to your phone’s camera roll.  You can also swap the views and reposition the Picture in Picture overlay window.

The app is free and can be found in the Windows Phone Store here.
