App constantly crashes. Can't watch videos back on any device. Really disappointed.
Works like a charm. Sometimes the video preview on the phone lags a bit. But that can also be my phone's fault
Not working with Nexus 6P on Android 8.0 (Beta 4) No longer connects via the App the the camera. Very disapointing!! Please fix
Out of 12 videos I've recorded only 2 have made it to YouTube with advertised quality. If I access the gallery on the device it freezes 100% of the time and I have to pull the battery to reset everytime. I can only access "videos/pictures" with my phone connected. When I download anything off the gallery it reaches 100% then I can only hit cancel or my home button. No other action works. It constantly crashes and always has a "Download Fail" and never converts the media. I downloaded other forms of media players that support a wide variety (MP3, MP4) and still no luck. I've used an: 8GB, 64GB, and a 126GB micro SD class 10 cards and still have the same problems! This is what you get when you go cheap on an "action camera". Never again will I go for the underdog when it comes to technology, medium or top shelf brands from now $65 dollar paper weight in my opinion! Invest in a better product with even better software!
This app is the worst app I ever downloaded...... It a waste of storage.. ...IT DOESN'T WORK AT ALL
It does everything that it needs to, For those who worry about not being able to use WiFi on their phone while filming, the simple solution is to use a separate tablet for your control/viewing, it works for me
Needs an update. With my old Samsung galaxy s5 it was able to download from the Activeon device to my phone without a problem. My new S8, it will now only dl the video, with no sound and I'm not able to dl the video on to my phone. The "share/download" option is just a dead button.
Very poor. Keeps crashing. Installed and uninstalled three times, worked once for two minutes then crashed again.
Couldn't link my phone to the camera. WiFi enabled but phone just says obtaining IP address then camera exits wifi and phone cancels the connection process. Followed all instructions. Phone is an LG G3.
It's ok but it won't let me watch my videos unless I'm on the app and I want to post it on YouTube but it won't let me edit the video or even post anywhere so if you could fix that it would be a great app I love the camera but plz fix it also if you want to subscribe to me on YouTube my YT channel is Whos Ansley
Awesome, controls my activeon cx camera remotely by it's own wi fi connection, has allowed us to train our dog to be left alone and we could see her reactions, so over time we lengthened the time we left her, always knowing how she was and when at first she was getting anxious and when the best time to intercede was, thank you so much.
Right after I connect it with WiFi and try to use my smartphone to record, the app keeps crashing
Doesn't work just crashes. LG V20 (LG-H915) Soft Ver: H91510q Build: NRD90M Android 7.0
Everytime I connect my phone to my cx gold it disconnects please fix would be nice to be able to use this feature thanks p.s- camera performance is awesome compared to a go pro 4
"Connection is not available" is all I ever get! The camera is great, but the app is NOT. It should be a BLUETOOTH connection, not wi-fi!
Hey activon FIX YOUR DANG APP I CANT EVEN WATCH THE VIDIO I JUST MADE. It would be much appreteated if you fixed this problem
Why do programmers waste their time producing apps that are so buggy. I've wasted so much time on this app, not once has it connected to the device. At least my Gopro works.
Love this camera, I use it for filming my skateboarding, and its GREAT! Only thing I wish it had was to see what you filmed. Other than that its a great camera with fish eye lens!
Ok so you have to turn off your mobile phone's data connection in order for the app to work. I think this is a network routing problem, probably due to the iPhone address range they used on the camera. They can fix this with a firmware update. Otherwise, the app won't connect to my cx with Nexus 6 does work with iPhone... Ugh
Camera does good, as long as you play video back on the camera itself. It will not play videos on anything else even though it takes a long time to download to another device and even shows the video there... still unable to play it
I'm new to this, but so far it's working ok. One annoying thing about the app, is it give a very loud pinging beep everytime you start the camera with it. The app has no setting function for the app, even though it gives full settings for the camera. The only way to silence that app ping, is to go in to your phones sound settings and silence the option for MEDIA sound. But then you'll have to remember to turn it back on again when finished with the app.
Purchased a CX Gold camera yesterday and was pretty pumped to use it. However, the app will not connect to my BlackBerry DTEK60 running the latest version of Android Marshmallow. This makes it pointless having an app at all.
The camera works. The app connects through WiFi and that becomes annoying because it disables data on my phone. After 15 videos I cannot get a video to transfer audio with the video to my phone for playback. Playback on the camera itself has the audio without issue. Imo poor setup.
Crashes constantly. Will not work at all for neither my phone or my wife's. Followed instructions exactly as told on website and instruction booklet. Once connected to device the app will not open and constantly has a popup message saying "App has stopped working" Pretty pathetic considering the only function of this app is to connect to the camera and it can't even do that.
Absolutely terrible. I've never had an app crash so often. I get a black screen on my phone once connected. I then disconnect the wifi and try again and same crap. I have to shut the camera off and then start again to get it to work. Royal pain in the ass since it never works properly upon the first connection.
Horrible app.. Camera OK at best.. Will not connect to camera. Eyery time i try im prompted with the message "please disconnect camera connection and try again." The camera it self is not recognized by any of the 8 PC's in my house. The microphone could be better. And the touch screen is a bit of a pain with fat thumbs. Other than that its image quality is good and it does surprisingly well in lower light.
I can't find the password to connect the app with the camera using the WiFi
Works well. I likes being able to watch on both cell phone screen and camera screen simultaneously.
When I try connecting android phone and camera on Wi-Fi it says its connected but it does not let me Live view or anything that has to do with it like record etc.. (Rarely it works) Please fix. Camera overall is great. I have a Activeon CX.
When I installed the app it worked when I wanted to use it for the second time it didn't worked I deleted the app and reinstalled and it work I was gonna use it again and it didn't work anymore other than that annoying problem the app is good please fix
The camera itself is awesome I love it, but the app sucks horribly. Everytime I try to open it, it fails. It was working good before I got the update, but now I can't watch the videos. I'll give it 5 stars when you don't have to download the videos like 3 times just to get it to the right format to play. If your going to do a crap job making an app just charge everybody $1 and make it work.
Dont waste your money
Very responsive to the reports of the album access issue I was having. It is now fixed. Thanks!
No performance issues (after the my album bug fix) and the app is easy to use and watch videos from. Over all, it's a great app that allows you to do lots of things with your camera. You can even change the settings from the app!
Works great. Can download video and pictures from camera to phone.
Amazing camera but that app only worked once. Keeps telling me to disconnect the camera and try again.
Fix the slow downloading of videos and then make much fluid the app
Quick access to the settings, adjusting the camera, battery life, storage space, viewing your album. It has minor crashes in my experience, but a sturdy app overall.
You use this app called GoPro cam suite, you turn on WiFi mode on your camera, wait until it says "Need help?" Press that and press Gopro hero 3 and older. Then wait again and press "Show all". Your camera will be connected in a snap. Go back to the ActiveOn app. Your camera should be connected and working great! (Now you can give this app 5 stars)
