New GoPro Control app lets you control your wireless Hero model from your Windows Phone

GoPro is currently working on a companion app for their video camera lineup on the WP8 platform. It will be a few weeks before it’s ready, so if you’re out on an adventure soon and need remote control of your device from your Windows Phone by then, look no further than teq-IT’s GoPro Control app.

Other than the live preview which will be offered on the official program, GoPro Control has everything else covered, like powering the device on/off and changing settings and shooting modes. It also has a very basic user interface when compared to what GoPro plans to invest in that department.

The app is available for $2.49 and no trial is available. Considering that GoPro’s own program will be free, if you don’t absolutely need to control your camera from your phone, like, right now,¬†you might be better off waiting¬†until the company is ready to release their own app.
