The GoPro App for iPhone & iPad – also available on Android

You do have the option to shell out more money for a LCD screen and a WIFI remote, but if you have a smart phone with either the Apple or Android app stores then the good news is that you can have the functionality of both of these tools for free (though your GoPro model must be WIFI enabled, older models that aren’t can be made compatible by buying a WIFI adapter – £99.99).

The GoPro App has proven popular enough that other brands are making compatible competitors such as Prizmia – a forthcoming iPhone release that allows you to also edit footage on your phone as well as add filters and FX in real time before uploading to Facebook or Instagram. You don’t even need a PC anymore!
