What's new in version 2.11.1

- Bug fixes --- WHAT'S NEW FROM 2.11 / RELEASED DEC 10 --- We’ve made it even easier to capture, organize and share your best moments. The GoPro App now offers Apple Watch compatibility, simple ways to browse your media and the ability to grab still images from videos. --- NEW + IMPROVED --- + Now compatible with Apple Watch: Preview shots, control your camera and add HiLights, all from your wrist. + Pull still images from videos: Quickly flip through a video frame-by-frame to find your favorite moment and save it as a high-quality still image. + New filtered views: Filter your downloaded media by photos, videos or HiLights. When viewing media on your camera, you can filter by photos, videos or HiLights to find your favorite moments fast. + Nearly everything is viewable on iOS: Even some 4K phones still can't support ultra high frame rate video. Now you can play back a lower res video in most cases—so you can still check out your shot on the spot. --- KNOWN ISSUES --- + Occasionally, cameras may have trouble maintaining the date a piece of media was captured. Some capture dates may be incorrect or missing, and media on your camera may appear out of order as a result. + Pulling a still image from a video may take extra time, especially when connected to HERO2 and HERO3 cameras. Occasionally, other cameras may be a little slow when flipping through video frames to pull a still image. + Some video formats aren't viewable. Previewing certain high frame rate video formats is not supported on iPhone 4s, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c. We recommend shooting in 1080p at 30 fps for easy playback. + 4K videos taken on a GoPro can not be edited or saved to your phone. Although iPhone 6s supports some 4K video, the high frame rate of GoPro's 4K video unfortunately isn't supported. You can still view any video shot in 4K, but we recommend shooting in 1080p at 30 fps for easy sharing, trimming and downloading. --- IN THE WORKS --- + We’re working on improvements for managing your HiLights on iOS (currently, videos downloaded from the camera don’t preserve HiLights). + We’re working on offering the same filtered views for both on-camera media and media downloaded to your phone. ------ Like the app?
