GoPro Wifi BacPac App – Not Here Yet!

Well I could not stand the waiting anymore, so I called GoPro support today (again) and asked “When is the Go-Pro WiFi BacPac App for iPhone or Android coming out?” The answer from GoPro was: “Another month. End of August 2012. Really this time we are certain.” I purchased the GoPro Wifi BacPac on June 4th for my GoPro HD Hero2 but I have to wait until September to the functionality there promo video clearly states it does? What?

I love GoPro but they could have either waited to release the hardware or have at least released some functional app in the interim. Is it really that hard? 10 Year old kids are writing apps that sell millions – what is the deal here? I thought GoPro would be different than all the “big guys” and they are right on track as being the same. Change my mind GoPro! Please! Release the GoPro Wifi BacPac. Perhaps the team at Parrot (makers of the Ar.Drone) could take over GoPro and get the app out!

Ok, I am venting, but it is really a product I want to like. I have been flying my planes with the Gopro HD Hero2 and the WiFi BacPac just so I can say I did. But other than a glorified remote it is a let down that the BacPac App is not out yet. OK. I am done venting…….
