GoPro is out today with a big change to its iOS app. It’s now been transformed into “Quik” and has been redesigned to work with your photos and videos no matter if you took them with one of the company’s action cameras, your iPhone, or DSLR. Quik includes powerful, easy-to-use editing tools, themes, filters, and music along with a new “Mural” feature that automatically creates highlight videos from your favorite moments.
GoPro announced the news in a press release today:
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 favorite 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.
GoPro says the revamped app works with photos and videos taken from “any modern phone or camera, including GoPros and DSLRs.”
Here are Quik’s key features:
- 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
