GoPro launched a total refresh of its mobile app Quik recently.
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.
Quik replaces the GoPro app in iOS and Android app stores today. Existing GoPro app users will see their app update upon install.
For GoPro camera users, Quik features all of the capabilities of the previous GoPro app, plus so much more.
Existing users’ photos and videos will transfer from the old GoPro app to the new Quik app upon install and any cloud-based footage will remain accessible.
I’ve used Quik before it was dissolved by GoPro, and I must admit, it’s one of the best out there. This time around, Quik is GoPro’s main app.
Highlights of Quik
The simple yet impressive tool comes with a few new additions during this upgrade.
- Unlimited Importing of Your Favorite Photos and Videos: Import photos and videos from any phone or camera, including GoPros and DSLRs. Never lose track of your best shots, Quik makes it easy to enjoy them all in one app
- Unlimited Cloud Backup (Available Later This Year): Every photo and video you post to your Quik mural feed will be backed up at its original quality
- Automatic Video Creation: Create impressive music-synced videos by simply selecting the photos and videos you want to include along with a song from the included library or your own
- New GoPro Original Music: Choose from a growing list of royalty-free tracks curated in-house at GoPro or add your own music to your videos—all of which will automatically beat-sync to your videos
- Powerful Editing Tools: Adjust exposure, contrast, color, vibrancy; get creative with intuitive single and multi-clip video editing; add text, stickers and more
- New Video Speed Tool: Speed ramp your videos faster or slower and add super slo-mo and freeze frame segments at multiple points within in a single video clip

I’m quite sure this app will be popular among GoPro users, but it would make more sense if you owned a GoPro to match with the app.
