GoPro have launched a major, replacement, upgrade of their old APP for smart phones, Gopro users and all digital camera users (including DSLR’s). With the old APP users could remote control their Gopro camera and transfer photos or videos. That was about it. The new offering is a completely different smorgasbord of special features.
Restyled Quik is a simple and fun editing and cloud storage suite with a specifically designed user friendly photo/movie organizer system called ‘Murials’.
With Gopro Inc’s shares surpassing a new 52-week high, of its previous peak of $12.68, this was an ideal week to announce an app which will be the exciting bulwark of their software offerings in 2021 and beyond.
Quik Fast Functions & Murials of Gopro’s New Quik APP
Gopro says an important function of the software is to allow better organisation of your shots to end the frustration of endless scrolling on your smart phone, looking for a photo. The Gopro axiom is: “Best Shots in One Spot”. For example if you wanted to make your 20 shots of you on holiday in Miami easier to find, simply select them and the APP will conveniently place them in an easy to find murial.
The APP will automatically add music and special affects to create a film into the bargain, which you can opt to discard or play with (edit’ may be more of an appropriate word to more serious aficionados) such as the easy tap, theme, color filters or a slow mo feature. Apply different themes like ‘magic’ and allow the music to auto sync to the cool edits. Add your own music or choose from Gopro’s royalty free library which can auto ‘beat sync’ to the video.
“GoPro’s New Quik APP 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!”GoPro founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman.
