    Hi All:

    I'm complete newbie to android although I have plenty of computer experience. Bought a 7" Tablet last Friday (Nov. 16, 2012) for the primary purpose of remotely controlling my GoPro Hero2 camera over wifi.

    I installed both the official GoPro App and the independent RemoteGo app with mixed results.

    The official app gives me a black screen of death while the older app gives me full control with intermittent monitoring.

    I would greatly appreciate the benefit of others' experiences with these and other apps.:)

    Hello Bobbilob and welcome to Android Forums!

    What tablet did you end up buying? Was it a Nexus 7? Also what version of Android is the tablet running.

    This may help us troubleshoot some of your issues you are seeing with your GoPro.

    Other apps that are actually working very well are Vimeo and Weather Network. I am fairly optimistic about getting this solved.
