Yeah I have an iphone, so that sounds awesome! but I was thinking more of being at a disadvantage for lining up shots haha. I can imagine it might be a little difficult to film while holding the pole in one hand and your phone in the other ;P. Thanks for the other suggestion it really does sound more practical for viewing videos
Do people that have the lcd screen on their gopro actually look through it while riding or is it someone people only use after they have shot the video?
I use it to line up shots right after I mount to helmet or leg so I don't spend all day filming the sky or the ground, works great...mobile app is still in version 1.0 so not all functionality is there but is still very very cool and does not impact GoPro battery life.
Also allows you to adjust camera settings, take still images, start\stop video and power on\off gopro from phone.......way way worth 60$ IMO
When we go on road trips we mount our gopro to our roof rack and use our iPad to snap photo's of cool shit, great for self\group portraits too
