If you caught the show last week, you’ll know we proclaimed GoPro the current king of the action camera market. And now the little action camera has got even smarter: a new app has been released for Android that lets you turn your phone into a viewfinder for it. Read on for all the details.

Head over to the Google Play store and you’ll find a new GoPro app available to download for free. Install it, and you can then connect to your GoPro HD Hero 2 with Wi-Fi BacPac from afar, and see what it’s filming with a viewfinder in your phone – support for the new GoPro 3 will arrive in December, as well as adjust all your camera’s settings.

The GoPro camera needs to be connected to a Wi-Fi network, so it won’t work outdoors on a mountain, but it’s a useful tool if you want to set up your GoPro as an impromptu security cam, or for checking the field of view for a timelapse mode. The app mirrors the already available iPhone app, but the more the merrier we say.

The GoPro app is available now, and runs on Android 4.0 devices (older versions may work, but with staggered framerate). Let us know how you get on with it in the comments below.
