The app has a glitch in it. I have an originally 360 and Samsung s6. I can connect and from my lock screen record video or capture pictures. When I try to access camera from app it is stuck on the loading page and never access live camera fees or the videos captured. Need to fix.

I'm not sure why so many people are having problems with this app. I'm using it with my S8+ / Gear 360 (2017) and I'm not having any problems connecting, downloading, or editing. The only thing I can't figure out is how to add the bottom logo on pictures. Help would be greatly appreciated with this feature!

App would be fine if it weren't for the fact that without warning, sometimes I cannot open live view when connected to the camera nor can I access the camera's gallery. I fixed this the first time by manually clearing the SD card memory, but now, it is nearly empty and I have the same problem. It's extremely hindering to the function of the camera. EDIT: Downgraded to a 1. This app is not functional. Cannot view or edit photos. I can retrieve them by putting my SD card into a computer but they lose their 360 nature. Garbage. Please fix.

This application fails to connect and then crashes when attempting to connect to my older (supposedly compatible) gear360, just like the previous version of this application. Shame I really wanted it to work. ||| Replaced my S7Edge with an S8+. I am now able to connect to and use the camera, I am very dissatisfied with the support for the product.

Worked fine with my original Gear 360 camera for while. Now it crashes every time I try to connect the camera. The old app worked just fine. I want it back.

can someone from Samsung tell me why my brand new $700 Samsung Tab S3 cant download this. I have tons of Samsung products and kind of assumed they should work together. maybe I am wrong???🤔

Seems to play nicely with the S8+ and 1st Gen 360. Found a way to make it crash, connecting for the first time with an NTFS formatted card in the camera. It NO like.

The app is Great.. simple, easy to use, and did exactly what is meant for it.. My review here is about the Gear 360 (2017) itself. While the camera is fantastic, there is one big issue... overheating.. the manual says it is recommended to operate it in temperatures below 30c? This means i cant use the camera in Summer days in most of the countries.. and in Qatar where I live most of the year. In other words I can't use it outside closed and air conditioned areas for at least 8 months, since temperatures hesr are always above 30 (40 to 50). Today for example, I could only record 8 minutes outside before the recording stops with a message saying "gear 360 is overheating".. What is the camera for if I can't use it outdoor? I hope the next generation of this camera would stand hotter weather and have good cooling mechanism. And I hope that samsung could invent some accessory for the current camera to keep it cool a little longer than just 8 minutes. I'm very disappointed, and feel like being tricked. Samsung should have made it clear that the camera will not stand the Gulf Countries hot weather and will only record a few minutes.

very sluggy and crashed on many file operations. also there is no way to point it to existing media folder, which is a must for long 4k videos. I do not need to download it if I can simply move SD card from camera to phone. Samsung you can do better!

Closes on trying to connect to the camera. I'm running an S8 with the old 360 camera. Since installing this new software, it's also broken the old version. Maybe I can use my 360 camera as a golf ball, because that's pretty much the only possibility now. I can allegedly take photos and videos but I can't ever watch them. Very poor job Samsung.

definitely loving the camera for the app can definitely use some work in the featires department. For example why can I not transfer pictures using an OTG adapter, transferring over the Wi-Fi adapter is extremely slow and painful especially when you have long videos.
