Alternative app "Camera Suite": http://www.camerasuite.org/download
# Supported models:
- All Hero 4 models *NEW*
- All Hero 3 models including White/Silver/Black Edition and Hero 3+ models
- Hero 2 with Wifi BacPac
# Demo Video:
# Installation instructions
- Enable Wifi ("app" or "phone+tablet" mode) on your GoPro Hero.
- Connect your GoPro using Wifi to your Mac. The default GoPro Wifi password is "goprohero".
- Start the Wifi Browser app.
# Connection problems
If reloading content from the GoPro does not work properly then completely power off the GoPro by removing both the USB cable and the GoPro battery.
The app displays both low resolution preview (*.LRV) and high resolution video files (*.MP4). Streaming of high resolution video files can be stuttering due to limited Wifi bandwidth of the GoPro Hero. To delete a video file you have to select the MP4 file. Deletion requests of LRV files are ignored by the GoPro.

Not for Gorpro Session
don’t throw away $4 to save loading a sim card.
Works for my GoPro Hero 4 Black
Took the risk and downloaded it. Works just fine! At first I was a little worried because I couldn’t login to GoPro’s wifi on my iMac with the default password provided above, but that is not this app’s fault. In order to login you will have to enter the password you created and luckily I guessed it right. So if you can’t remember or figure out your GoPro’s password, I would not buy this. Other than that, the video downloaded right away and was good to go. Two things to be aware of: there is no internet connection when you are connected and the videos are somewhat, annoyingly, played in a seperate window.
Would not connect to GoPro
Could not get this app to connect to a GoPro Hero 3 White camera, although the Mac could see the camera's wi-fi node. The GoPro app could see and connect to the camera, so the problem appears to be with this app. Contacted the app creator's support email address and they responded quickly with a few things to try, but a second message saying those suggestions did not help went unanswered.
It should be noted that even if this app can see the camera, it apparently is not possible to have a Mac connected to it and to the Internet at the same time. Thus, this app does not offer a way to move photos from the camera to a web site, stream a view, or anything like that. (This is not to imply the app says it does this and fails in that regard, just that it's not a solution for someone wanting to do that.)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
