There's an android / IOS app which connects to the GoPro3's WiFi to let you change settings, preview, and function the camera -- but it doesn't allow you to transfer the files. (Also I want to transfer them to my pc)

Is there an application for windows which will let me wirelessly transfer files from my gopro?

The gopro runs its own web server (cherokee). To show the files and 'download' to your pc/mac/phone/etc simply point your browser to:

As mentioned above, the transfer speeds are quite slow, it's still usable.

Note: This is for gopro hero 2 with wifi bacpack, may be different for other devices.

Works for Hero 3 black as well. Thanks! – Hannes Ovrén Jan 22 '14 at 16:20
Does this work with Hero 3+ Black Edition? – Kozuch Aug 17 '14 at 14:59
@Kozuch Yes, it does. I tested it just now. – radj Jun 1 at 0:19

GoPro have recently updated their IOS/Android App to allow you to transfer directly to your device, including Dropbox sync. Pretty neat stuff!

WiGo by claims to let you do this.

I tried it out. Windows noted that I was connected at 65mbps, however the file file transfer was horribly slow.

I was trying to transfer 3 files at a total of 5GB, and over about 5 minutes, only one file transferred 65mb. It would have taken hours at that rate to transfer the files (and instead of charging the battery, like using a cable would -- this was draining the battery).

FYI the UI is neat and simple, it's a great app for changing the settings etc, and it fires up a VLC streaming preview. Browsing the filesystem is done via a web server, you browse it like a webpage and "download" the files.

I also noted that going to help->about states that it expires in 25 days...

I have 3+ and it works. I download SiteSucker and type the address and start download. I could not reach them all; it disconnects for some reason. But it is possible should your USB cable stop working as mine did.
