- GoPro has introduced a new version of its GoPro app for smartphone.
- The app will now be called GoPro Quik Video + Photo Editor.
- The new version of the existing GoPro app has arrived with a boatload of features.
GoPro had an app by the same name for smartphone users. Through this app, users were able to remote control their GoPro camera and transfer data. Now, the company has modernized the app with big updates. The first one being the name of the app which is now called GoPro Quik Video + Photo Editor. With the new version of the app comes a boatload of features such as Mural, some video editing tools, Quik-exclusive filters, GoPro original music and more.
Speaking of Mural, it is an interactive feature where users can revisit their favourite photos and videos. As the company states, "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."
Users can also share images that already exist in phone's camera roll, text threads or wherever favorite images are kept. If you select multiple photos and videos to transfer to the Quik app at once, then it will group them together and produce a compilation highlight video beat-synced to music. However, users can make changes in those highlight videos as well.
GoPro Founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman, notes, "Quik makes it simple and fun to finally make sense of the vast number of photos and videos we all have on our phones. 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."
The new GoPro Quik Video + Photo Editor app boasts features that help users edit photos and create video content. Let's have a look:
--Users can import photos and videos from any smartphone or camera including GoPro cameras and DSLRs.
--Using Quik app, you get unlimited cloud backup which actually will be available later this year. But having this feature would mean that each photo and video posted on Quik mural feed will be backed up at its original quality.
--There is a feature of automatic video creation. Users can create music-synced videos by simply selecting the photos, videos, and a song from the given library or from your own.
--Similar to YouTube's own music library, the Quik app also has introduced its own playlist. Users will be able to choose from a growing list of royalty-free tracks curated in-house at GoPro or can also add their own music to the videos -all of which will automatically beat-sync to the videos.
--Users get video editing features within the new Quik app where you can adjust exposure, contrast, color, vibrancy as well as add text, stickers and Quik-exclusive filters. Editors can also choose from a growing list of video edit themes to maintain a particular style of the video.
--To make videos fun, GoPro Quik app allows users to speed ramp videos faster or slower and add super slo-mo and freeze frame segments at multiple points within a single video clip.
--Users can also extract stills from the videos which can be used to create thumbnail images later.
--Quick app allows easy social sharing where users can post directly to Instagram, Facebook and YouTube or share via text or email.
