GoPro Apple Watch app lets users control recording from the wrist

Action camera-maker GoPro has just released an updated iOS app that lets users start and stop recording from their wrist. Assuming there's an Apple Watch on it, that is. The new Apple Watch app gives access to quick and seamless camera controls, but doesn't overload the tiny screen with a ton of unnecessary options. As their video demonstrates below, there's a big red button to control recording, as well as a few other features.

In addition to recording control, the GoPro Apple Watch app will also provide users with a real-time preview to a shot, the ability to switch between capture modes, and add highlight tags to select parts of a video. In a moment of busy shooting, having these controls on the wrist could be much more useful than on a smartphone screen.

The main mobile apps for both iOS and Android have been updated as well, getting an overhauled design and making it easier to grab still photos from video clips. The Trim & Share feature can also be used to trim video to clips that are 5, 15, or 30 seconds long, making them perfect for sharing on different social media platforms.

Lastly, a new filtering tool allows users to quickly sort through their media by photos, videos, highlighted moments, or edited clips. All the app updates are available to download now from the iOS App Store and Google Play.
