Update on Android App:
Dear Android Users,
I am an android user and would have loved nothing more than to simultaneously release the Drift app for both IOS and Android platforms.  However this was simply not feasible and I wanted to explain why.
  Mobile app design is a new field of development for us, in order to ensure optimal performance and minimize development time we were forced to work on one platform at a time. This prevented us from facing any new issues twice along the development process.  The sole reason we decided to develop on the IOS platform first was because it generally takes longer for apps to be approved on this platform. The decision to develop the IOS app first will result in a shorter release gap between the two platforms with the longer process having been dealt with first.
 
Please rest assured, the IOS and Android apps are much stronger now because of this.  We are working very hard and the Android app development is well under way.  It will be available at the beginning of next year.  Thank you very much for your patience and for the outstanding response for the Drift HD Ghost.

    Hi
    Why isn’t compatible with IPhone 3GS with IOS 6.0

    • Drift Innovation

      December 18th 2012

      Hi Jose,

      The App is not compatible with iPhone 3GS due to the hardware of the phone. Unfortunately it is too slow to handle the camera.

      • Arnaud Lapeyronnie

        January 10th 2013

        Hi,
        I don’t think 3gs is too slow. The explication given when i want to charge the app is that the 3GS is not compatible because it doesn’t have “front camera” so no correlation…
        Please make an effort…to make the app compatible…

        • Drift Innovation

          January 10th 2013

          Hi there! Indeed, the message displayed is wrong, we apologise for that! However, the App is still not compatible with the Iphone 3GS. We could not find a way to make it work with the Iphone 3GS, due to hardware limitations of the phone.

    Please do a good job on the android app. The overwhelming response in sales is due to good product results in the past, and some serious new product capabiities expected from the ghost.
    I currently own a contour gps and have got it to work, rarely…. Very disappointed with it , and have made it known for the poor quality.

    If you start the camera from wifi connection then lose wifi connection will the drift camera stay recording?

    What’s the countdown for the Android market now? Seeing that your posts do not have dates on them I’m assuming the Android release is due in the early part of this year :)

    I also hope that my Galaxy S2 is powerful e-nuff for this app :)

    Hi,

    Just bought a iPad 4 WiFi 16gb. I installed the Drift App. Seems to work fine, but when I go to download video from the Drift ghost to my ipad 4. It comes up with a message “Failed to save to camera roll”. I’m not sure what to do?

    January 25th 2013

    Just got my Drift HD Ghost today! now learning how to use it and I can’t wait for the android app! Can already see it will be extremely helpful! Love this little camera and I will be representing Drift Innovation big time!
    Keep doing what your doing!

    January 25th 2013

    Hi Drift Innovation ! I’m really enjoying my Drift HD Ghost, but unfortunately I have an iPhone 3GS… Is there any chance that the app could work on this device soon ?
    As said Jose and Arnaud Lapeyronnie, I don’t think it’s a problem of device, it can handle the firmware iOS 6, so it could as well handle such an app…
    I hope a solution could be found soon, because it’s a real handicap for users like me (and I’m not the only one…)

    • Drift Innovation

      January 28th 2013

      Hi Kevin,
      Unfortunately, the hardware of the 3GS is not able to cope with the requirements of the App and this is unrelated to the firmware iOS 6.

  21. Kirk

    January 29th 2013

    Your web page says the iOS app is compatible with the iPad 1, but when I try to install it I get an error saying my iPad doesn’t have a camera (none othe first generation iPads did), so it won’t install.

    Hey Guys,
    Are you guys going to be at the MCN Bike show in London in Feb? I saw your early drift cams there last year. Im interested in seeing a ghost in the flesh with a potential view to buy.

    Android app would seal the deal! !!

    February 5th 2013

    HI,
    thank you for releasing the iOS app!

    1. Can you record when the camera is connected to the USB port?
    2. If so, will it charge or at least not drain the battery?
    3. Would functionality be impaired in anyway (wi-fi or remote, etc.) while connected to the USB?

    thanks!

    • Drift Innovation

      February 6th 2013

      Hi Dan,
      If the camera is connected to a USB power source, yes you can record. If the camera is connected to a USB data port, you cannot. It will not drain the battery and all functionalities will work just fine (as the camera is connected to a USB power source)

  27. Adar

    February 6th 2013

    Guys,
    I’m trying to figure out which camera to buy for a while now but each cam has its major downsides.
    When or will the APP of the drift allow me to use the smartphone as a monitor while recording a video instead of freezing up until I stop? When or will I be able to choose 60 FPS from the app?
    Thanks

    Please remark, that a high amount of Android users is still working on 2.3 and make the drift app compatible to this version.
    Better to buy a Drift Ghost HD than loose money for a new mobile with Android 4.x

        If you having issues connecting to the WiFi with ‘wifi initialising’ then this will be related to your memory card. Can you try formatting your card inserted inside your camera please.

    Hi,

    not really helpful to announce the release for 12th March over a long period and then only offer a beta test. For those who suggest to buy the cam only in case of a sufficient working app, this is no progress.

    Without having the cam bought yet, I cannot test anything, without knowledge about the app working well, I will not buy the cam.

    Is anybody out there testing the beta on a HTC Desire S running Android 2.3.5, Sense Ver. 3.0, and can tell me about it. This would let me make the decision to buy the cam now, because I´m near an event where I need it. Other option must remain to buy the GoPro HERO, because there´s not any more long time to decide.

    Thx.

    Hi,

    On ipad 3 32gb with ios 6.0 I get error “Failed to save to camera roll” when I try to download a video or a picture.

    is there any configuration that I am missing?

    Thanks in advance,

    Regards,

    • ITESTMYDRIFTHDGHOST

      March 17th 2013

      I found that the “Failed to save to camera roll” error, upon pic/video download, was link to an option within IOS as the drift app needs to have access to the ios media library.

      to authorise it:
      1. Open up your device’s privacy settings by going to: Settings > Privacy > Photos
      2. Allow the drift app to access your photos, switch Pinterest to ON

      It works fine after…

    All this wait and promise of an android app release and all we get is a beta. Does anyone else feel they have been mislead by drift on this.

      Hi,

      We’re sorry that you feel mislead, but we didn’t want to release the app in its current state as we want to give our customers the best experience possible – so we would rather involve you guys in helping us do this.

      Thank you for your patience, the Drift Team

      • Disappointed

        March 21st 2013

        My point is you announced a release date (twice), no mention of it being a beta. Clearly misleading people into thinking the app was ready.
        Now how long do we have to wait for something that it considered final?
        This is a real pity as the camera itself is a great bit of kit.

          Hi again,

          We fully understand that from that perspective it could be seen as misleading, but this was not our intention at all – we hit some issues with certain features with the app that delayed the full release but please be assured that it will be here soon enough and we appreciate your patience in the meanwhile.

          Thanks again, the Drift Team

      March 19th 2013

      Hi Phil,

      Thanks for the feedback, we’ve tested the app on the Nexus 7 and it was one of the more stable devices at the current time – hopefully we can investigate what may be causing your particular issue.

      Thanks again, the Drift Team

        Sending another note as resolved the issue – memory card in the camera was full. Have a few points but the main ones are that live preview is not working at all and when the + option is selected from the mode menu that menu stops working – selecting the + icon top left does not open the menu.

    Hi,

    Samsung Galaxy S3.

    First use – live preview work 5 mins. Both devices froze. Needed reboot phone. Take batery out of camera.
    Second use – for timelapse- no live preview. No media gallery view. cant tell if recording or not. Only settings work.

    Latest firnware. No remote interference.

    Thank you

    I already wrote the following to Beta Test with Subject: FEEDBACK DRIFT 132
    Hello there.
    I am the owner of a Samsung Galaxy S Duos GT-S7562L Android 4.0.4.
    I installed VLC player for Android and Drift Android App Beta Build Drift1.3.2.apk on my Samsung S Duos.
    I activated WiFi on my Drift HD Ghost, I selected HD GHOST 000 from my Duos and I was capable of seeing on Duos’s display what seen through Ghost’s lens.
    When, pressing the relevant button on the display of my Duos, Ghost started recording (i.e. red LED went on): after a couple of seconds, display of Samsung S Duos went black, and phone was not any more responsive to any command.
    Neither responsive to any command was Ghost: it (apparently) remained on the red LED of recording, but Ghost was NOT responding to any command through Ghost’s buttons: I had to open up rear cover, extract the battery and re-insert it in position.
    After this operation, my phone unlocked but it behaved exactly as if I did a reset: again, phone asked me to digit PIN and went online again.
    From Ghost memory, there was no trace of previous recording: no file present.
    So, at this stage, Drift Android App Beta Build is NOT usable from my Samsung Galaxy S Duos GT-S7562L Android 4.0.4.
    I hope the above helps you to sort out a solution for such a bug.
    Regards
    Andrea

    I got the beta app and so far it’s working on my Galaxy Nexus.

    If you’re in the US, Google Play Store won’t let you download VLC, but you can download a nightly build here: http://nightlies.videolan.org/build/
    (You’ll have to choose the correct version depending on the instruction set your phone’s procesor uses)

    • Phil S

      March 20th 2013

      GUZBIKES – which model is that? I have tried the 4 and 7, with VLC Beta installed from google play, and get no view on either of what the camera is picking up. Most other functins work with a few exceptions that I have reported but this is the biggest gap for me.

    • PHIL S

      March 20th 2013

      Sorry – just saw it was a Galaxy Nexus, not a Google Nexus. I am getting no live preview on either Google model.

      If you could email us (beta@driftinnovation.com) with more specifics such as phone & camera firmware versions, and perhaps my colleagues in charge of the beta can assist you with the issue your having with live preview.

      Same for me ,i’ve tried on galaxy s3 jellybean ,every time i press the live preview i see for a little while that the app try to switch to VLC player and go back.I’ve seen the same problem both on Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 1 with 4.0.1 Icecream.I’ve followed the instruction and i’ve also disabled the remote control but nothing has changed

    HI,

    I am using my Ghost for some long POV shots on holiday in Brazil, but after ten minutes my footage is unusable due to condensation.

    These are one-chance-only shots. I need them to be usable.

    Please can you advise? I love the camera but this is a real problem.

    Thanks
    Hugo

    • danny.balkwill

      March 25th 2013

      Hi Hugo,

      We suggest to fix the condensation problems within the camera that you remove the back-hatch, remove the battery and leave open in a dry, non-humid room and let the anti-fog strips inside the camera dry out for between 6-12 hours – this should fix the issue your having.

      If you have any other issues please contact Customer Support.

      Sorry for the inconvenience this is causing you, the Drift Team

  65. RJ

    March 26th 2013

    Any possibilty that an update to the mobile app might allow continuing the “live preview” while the camera is actually recording? The frozen screen is a bit of a negative to this potential buyer (who is also waiting to see the completed Andriod app before committing!)

    • Drift Innovation

      Hi there, unfortunately we are not able to do due this to hardware limitation of the camera. We will keep you updated on the Android app.

      • Alexandre (FR)

        June 2nd 2013

        On the first day of use, I saw condensation (like a rectangle of fog) under the lcd screen. But it works, despite the fact i can’t see the screen.

        Then, my drift hd Ghost camera says” no more battery”, but it shows 95%. After 1 hours of using with remote control on, it shuts down and says no more battery with 95 % indicator ???.

        So i recharged it at 18h today, and still charging with blinking red light, after 5 hours of usb charging (23h05 now) !

        I followed the recommanded first charge of initial setup described in the manual, (4 hours charging on USB, and it said this moring 100% charged). I did correctly the firmware update.

        - Why there is a rectangle of condensation under the LCD screen ?
        - Why did the battery shutted down so fast ?
        - Why does the battery take so ong to recharge?

        Regards,

        Alexandre.

        • Kate

          June 6th 2013

          Hey Alexandre,
          To help you out with the condensation you’re experiencing, this shouldn’t be an issue as long as the correct battery hatch has been attached and tightened securely. For your battery life, just so you aren’t getting confused with the battery and memory card icons, which is easily done, the % sign will indicate how much memory is left on your SD card. Whereas the battery life will be shown in blocks on the battery bar.

          If you could check your inbox as well, as one of our support team has sent you an email with a more in-depth explanation.

            June 7th 2013

            Thank you kate for your response, i appreciate.
            The condensation was because i had me camera on the top of my helmet, directly under the sun, and i drove fast suddenly with fresh air. I had the non-waterproof hatch at this time, because i was on a motorbike. I did exactly what you said, and everything is fine now.
            I will change my battery with my retailer. Thank you for the high quality of your assistance, this camera is totally great!

    Hi, I had trouble with my go pro mainly because I didnt have up to date software on my laptop, as I use my ipad. Can the drift be used without the use of a laptop and just my ipad?

    • danny.balkwill

      June 4th 2013

      Hi Gareth,

      It would be extremely inconvenient way of using the camera with just an iPad, unlike Android tablets which give you easier access to moving files / plug and play features etc. you would have to download an app to unzip the firmware for our cameras and then use an external device that connects an sd card reader into your iPad to be able to update/gather files from the device.

      Also I’m not sure if you want to video edit on your device either as this could cause you issues due to processing power, but with our Drift App you can install that on an iPad and transfer files wirelessly to your device via its Download option in the gallery.

      Hopefully this gives you an idea of ways to work around using your laptop.

      June 11th 2013

      Hi Julien,
      Unfortunately the Galaxy Note 1 is not one of the tried and tested Android phones, so we cannot promise that will be compatible the Beta 2.0 App version. Although if your phone is a 4.0 operating system, then to help make sure you’ve deleted all the previous versions of the app on your phone, without doing this the app won’t work as intended.
      The full version is due for release shortly so stay posted here for updates!

      Hey,
      Thanks for the suggestion, we definitely appreciate there are a lot of 2.0 OS android phones although due to the technical specs of the app it demands a 4.0 operating system to function as intended. Waiting for the full app is the best option, as there is always the possibility in future app updates that it will be able to work with your phone as well!

    The app runs on my sony xperia T, but the real time display goes black on the phone’s display, the moment you press record.The camera does respond to all the wifi commands but no live view possible during recording.You have to exit and enter the app to activate and monitor the live view again, but the camera needs to be recycled as well if you want to view the live view again-most frustrating.Pls advise.

    • Kate

      July 23rd 2013

      Hi Ian,
      When recording you won’t be able to see a live preview on your phone i’m afraid, this isn’t a bug but merely the way the app is designed and not a possible feature at the moment due to technical limitations. Although you can use the live preview to line up your shots and watch back all your footage.

    Full version app doesn’t work with Motorola Razr i. Same problem as Thom shown above. Won’t even start, just freezes or shows error message. Phone does connect OK to the camera WiFi but that’s about it :0(

    I’m looking to buy 3 maybe 4 ghosts and would like to know if you can switch between cameras on the ipad or iPhone app and not having to go into idevice general settings

    • Kate

      August 29th 2013

      Hi Mike,

      You won’t be able to control different cameras and switch between these through your iPhone of iPad unfortunately. You can use the remote control paired to multiple cameras to control them this way.

      For any further queries feel free to get in touch.

      Thanks,
      Kate

    I installed the app drift version from “google play” on my galaxy TAB2 7.0 GT-P3110.

    The first access to the “Live Preview” works well but after the first recording (video or others) it no longer works and shows a ‘rat1’ song in a upper band.

    In addition access to view recordings (video or others) does not work.
    These remarks are valid for the downloaded version 2.0 on your site or on “google play”.

    I bought the drift in february because the remote function was announced and since I expect a good version, I hope it will happen soon now it’s eight months I expect.

      Hi Jeff,
      We do find that some Android devices take well to the app whilst some don’t. I would encourage you to try the usual “remove and reinstall” method of troubleshooting and see if that resolves this for you.

    Dear Drift Staff,
    after updating my google nexus 7 (1st generation) to android 4.3, the preview is no longer visible. the drift app works, but no more preview. can you give advice?
    thanks, chris

    • Kate

      September 25th 2013

      Hi Chris,

      You should have a live preview to set up your shot prior to pressing record and then once recording you won’t have a live preview, this is to be expected due to limitations of the app. Is it that you do no not have a live preview at all? If so please make sure you’ve completed all the download steps correctly and send an email to beta@driftinnovation.com with all your feedback on the app. This will have improve and fix any bugs seem to be occurring.

      Thanks,

      Hi Bob,

      Apologies if you’re having some problems with the android app, have you deleted the previous Beta version if previously downloaded? Please can you email beta@driftinnovation.com with all your feedback on the app so we can get this fixed and improve the performance of our app.
      I hope you enjoy your Drift and we get the issue with your app resolved soon.

    downloading media from the ghost to my iPad 4 through wifi is extremely slow. Is there a method to do it through a cord.

    • Kate

      September 25th 2013

      Hi Robert,

      Unfortunately not, you can only use the USB cable provided to transfer files or WiFi using the app and as iPads don’t have a USB input then this isn’t an option I’m afraid. Depending on the file size, this will affect the speed it takes to download, as well as the distance the camera is to the phone. So long as they’re within an appropriate range and the video isn’t really large you should be able download them in good time.

      Thanks,

      Hallo Franke,

      This is definitely something we’re looking into, adding language options on to the Android App. Although at present it is not an option I’m afraid or something that will be available this year.

    Is there an APP available for the Blackberry 9790? I’ve got an iPad that works fine with my HD Ghost, but it’s too large to carry around when on the motorbike. Please assist – or tell me to go buy an iPhone . . . Regards

    • Kate

      October 16th 2013

      Hi Hennik,

      The app’s available to download for iPhones and android phones at the moment, unfortunately not Blackberrys mainly due to technical restrictions. It’s something we’ll look into for sure although if you’re looking to for a Drift app now, then yep i’d advise looking into a android or iPhone.

      Thanks,

    I bought the Drift Ghost S after I was told by the sales team it was wifi enabled and the app would work straight away and so gave it as early Christmas pressie today, but sadly it appears this isn’t the case and as he is off skiing Thursday it’s all a bit frustrating as this was something we wanted to sort before he went away, bit deflated

    • Kate

      December 11th 2013

      Hi Helen,

      I’m sorry the app isn’t compatible with the Ghost-S just yet! We’re developing it at the moment and it is due for release in the next few weeks, with some great improvements on the current app version, so hopefully worth the wait.
      I hope your son is enjoying his new Ghost-S, and please accept our apologies if you have been misinformed, not long now and the update will be out.

      Thanks,

    Why won’t you guys develop an app for Windows Phone? I’m awfully confused as these phones have decent specs and more and more windows phones are being solf. Please advise if this is being looked into. I don’t really want to spend extra money on a phone/tablet just so i can use your app.
    Thanks

    • Drift Innovation

      January 8th 2014

      Hi Logan,

      Unfortunately due to the still small market-share of the Windows Phone we have no plans to release an App for this platform. Of course this is growing market and if the things change, we will. At the moment, the development of Apps for this specific platform is still costly compared to the amount of users of it.

      Thanks – Laura

    Hello,

    I have my Ghost-S since few days. I can connect my iPhone to the camera wifi but the app displays the following message : “Please connect your Drift camera to the application settings”.

    My Ghost-S is up to date (firmware 0.2.9.0) and I have an iPhone 4S with iOS7.

    I also opened a ticket (EYV-625-68905) with your support.

    Thank you.

      Hi Johann,

      The Ghost-S App has not been released just yet and this is why you are getting this error message. The App you are using only works with the Drift HD Ghost. The Ghost-S App is being released in early February and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on the exact date. Hope this helps!

      Hi Brad,

      Please bear in mind that to use the Wifi feature you must have a memory card installed and formatted in the camera, with a minimum 1GB of free space. Please make sure your card is working, and is a microSD card of minimum class 6. Let us know if helped or drop us a message through http://support.driftinnovation.com/

    I have just purchased a ghost s and have spent a long time trying to connect the wifi to my iPad iPhone and galaxy4 to discover the app isn’t available yet for the ghost s, come on drift get your act together, you shouldn’t release a new camera without the app for the same.
    I only bought the ghost because I was impressed by my friends ghost HD and the playback on the phone and you have disappointed me.

    I had this problem with mine, you may need a faster SD Card. I was using a Sandisk 32GB and changed to the Lexar SD Card but make sure it’s the high speed one.
    This solved my problem.

    Good luck

    • Kate

      March 21st 2014

      Hey Enzo,

      Most phones won’t be able to get the stream at 1080/60 in real time, so unfortunately not! Instead the Ghost-S produces a lower resolution file which is meant for streaming to your mobile, in order to make the transference of files as smooth as possible.

      Thanks,
