Today (March 17,2021) GoPro launched a total refresh of its mobile app and gave it a new name to reflect its purpose – Quik.
Aptly named Quik, the app makes it quick and easy to get the most out of your favorite photos and videos no matter what phone or camera you’re using. Here’s what they have to say – our tester crew will be updating with reviews and edits later.
Sounds perfect for matching with the mighty MAX for example
At its core, Quik solves the “black hole” problem of your phone’s camera roll and ensures you’ll never lose track of your favorite photos and videos again.
The next time you capture that special “keeper” photo or video, you can conveniently share it to the Quik app where it will be added to your own private “Mural” feed within the app. You can also share images that already exist in your phone’s camera roll, text threads or wherever your favourite images may be. If you share multiple photos or videos at once to Quik, they’ll be grouped together as an event and the app will produce a compilation highlight video beat-synced to music—which you can adjust to your liking, if desired.
Quik also features a suite of powerful yet simple editing tools if you prefer to edit your photos and videos yourself.
“Quik makes it simple and fun to finally make sense of the vast number of photos and videos we all have on our phones,” said GoPro founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman. “You don’t even have to open the Quik app to organize your images, simply share your favorite shots directly to Quik from your camera roll, text threads or wherever your best shots may be. We named it Quik because that’s what it is!”
“Helping people get the most out of their personal content represents an enormous long-term opportunity for our business and brand,” added Woodman.
Quik is available for iOS and Android and supports photos and videos from any modern phone or camera, including GoPros and DSLRs.
