GoPro has launched a new mobile app named Quik for managing photos and videos, irrespective of the phone or camera being used.
The new app allows the users to store and manage images and videos by adding it to their private “Mural” feed within the app. Users may also share images that already exist in their phone’s camera roll and text threads, wherever the images may be. The app reportedly groups images or videos as an ‘event’ when multiple images or videos are shared in one go, and produces a compilation highlight video beat-synced to music, which can also be adjusted to one’s liking. It also features a suite of editing tools that allows users to edit their photos and videos.
Quik is available for iOS and Android and supports photos and videos from any modern phone or camera, including GoPros and D-SLRs. Its features include unlimited import of photos and videos, unlimited cloud backup (available later this year), automatic video creation, new GoPro original music, editing tools, new video speed tools, GoPro-exclusive filters, premium themes, frame grabbing and social media sharing.
The app is currently free for download and use on a trial basis and subscriptions for premium features is available for INR 499/year or INR 99/month. GoPro is kicking off the Make It #Quik Awards Challenge to award the best Quik edits. Participants can submit their best edits made with the Quik app on the official GoPro website. Quik has replaced the GoPro app in iOS and Android app stores and existing GoPro app users can see their app update upon installation. As for GoPro camera users, the new app features all of the capabilities of the previous GoPro app with additional features and all the data of the existing users will be transferred from the old GoPro app to the new Quik app upon installation, while all cloud-based footage remains accessible.
