Another Subscription 👎
by SirMarkos on 2021/06/13 23:26
As if paying $500 for one of their cameras wasn’t enough but now you have to subscribe to do what you were able to do for free on the previous Quick app. I kept my last version and deleted this one. This one is trash. Even with the pop-ups in the older one, trying to get me to upgrade to this hunk of junk, it’s still better.

Music

I’m unable to load my own music From drop box etc Frustrating Specially since the previous version had that feature. 👎🏽
Please Help Me!!
by Anonymous writer three on 2021/06/13 17:05
First of all, I love the app so much. This makes editing videos and photos so much easier (or just plain possible) for me to do. I wish that it was possible to share photos taken with your GoPro without having to upload to the app, and then having to upload to Photos... I also scan my schoolwork in with GoPro, And this is so difficult, because of both MS Teams AND Quik needing some improvement. But I need help with slowing down my videos. None of my videos have an option to slow it down past 0.5x, is this because I have a GoPro Hero 7 Black? Because if so, I am not super impressed. Please respond, Quik. I do love my Slo-Mos.
Simply awful
by A Usual Apple App Lover on 2021/06/13 14:44
Unreliable. Not user friendly. No clear GoPro procedures for its use. Encountered repeated failures to upload media to cloud GoPro could do a lot better
Cool app but..
by Aymenbardi on 2021/06/13 14:33
I’ve been using Quik for a while now and while this new version came I’ve found out that I can’t import music from my Files on my iPhone and it’s been limiting me with the music options that I have on the app only.. can you guys suggest a solution?
Just ok
by Indie_Lady on 2021/06/13 11:53
No ability to add music on this new version. And of course they want a tank of gas to do what was once free. In my opinion, a boring copy of the previous version but much less exciting with features e Eyr other app has. Why reinvent the wheel? I would’ve paid for the old free version- this one I’m dumping.
Awesome camera and video

Waste??

What the heck kind of app is this? You buy a $400 camera and can’t even use it with app. You guys really need to work on this app…
App keep on crashing
by sabai-kk on 2021/06/12 21:36
When I try to add photos are videos, it’s keep on crashing. Iam using iPhone X.
Stop it
by Iamamover on 2021/06/12 20:16
It is so annoying every time I go to make a video, exit, come back in or make any changes your stupid pop up “try the new Quik for free” comes up. I just updated it so please just stop.
Crashes
by knlandon89 on 2021/06/12 19:09
Every time I try and open the app and use the create mode it crashes immediately.
Only acces to your app media
by GuajaDad on 2021/06/12 14:35
The old app let you select media from cloud and phone, and this one only from the app
Not good
by Tar Bar on 2021/06/12 02:37
Used to be my favorite editor before they start making it upgrade paying, no tutorial and even though you’re subscribed won’t let you add or save, got totally messed up, so disappointed, now it’s all about pay pay without getting anything done!!! No support!!! I pushed the bottom and got subscribed but won’t let me edit or make a video, why am I paying for subscription!!! No instructions NO HELP what is happening, why is this amazing app changed!!!!
Great App
by K1NG KY1E on 2021/06/12 01:52
Hard to connect but works great
You have to pay!
by Saminhs82 on 2021/06/11 22:56
The last update took the free version and now we have to pay to do anything in the app. I have been using it since hero 4 and it’s been awesome app to make cool videos but just deleted. Suddenly took the free version!
Glitchy and lack of editing options
by this_is_50 on 2021/06/11 20:52
The new quik app is extremely glitchy and takes forever to load files to add to video. Does not have as many editing options as original quik app. Not a fan of these changes. Takes me 10x longer to make a video with this new app.
Pay to use
by nsimoz on 2021/06/11 20:20
Used to be a great app but now everything behind a paywall thanks for nothing go pro I’ll take my memories somewhere else
Great for quick edits
by nemoDreamer on 2021/06/11 17:24
... but I wish there were support for start/end on Highlights: it's hard to get the auto-edit to "get" a longer section...
From Best to Worse!
by sshavers on 2021/06/11 13:14
The original quick app used to be so awesome and a pleasure to use. This new app is confusing and crashes often! Whomever is in charge of designing this new version of Quik should be fired! APPLE please remove the high rating for this app because it no longer applies! 😤
Music?
by AdManny9 on 2021/06/11 12:49

Media doesn’t load!

Leave good enough alone
by Jet_Setter_DC on 2021/06/11 00:15
App was fine in its last iteration. Gone to complete sh t now. Issues connecting to GoPro, freezes all the time. Going elsewhere for my editing
this app is garbage
by Cobraa4545 on 2021/06/10 17:36
they are trying to make u pay for the editing that was free on the previous app because you just bought a $300 camera so y not!
Garbage app that never works
by bbee1590 on 2021/06/10 02:33
Consistently telling me to subscribe AFTER I HAD SUBSCRIBED TO A ONE YEAR SUBSCRIPTION. Waste of my time. Stupid app apparently is “unable to connect to iTunes” yet was very able to when it needed to take my $10! Garbage!
Not happy with this update (deleted app)
by KevyMUZAK on 2021/06/10 01:18
I am not happy with this update, for one I do not own a go pro and don’t think I will ever own one. I like the way it was so easily to create slide shows on my iPhone. I have read other peoples reviews and maybe they are right that I don’t know how to use it, but update theses days do not make apps better but more confusing with unnecessary functions and add features that you have to pay for so it can be work correct to its capacity. Since the original is no longer available due to it no longer being supported. so sorry to say I have deleted the app off my iPhone and iPad completely.

Didn't work with Iphone.
by Lutcenko suka blat on 2021/06/09 20:40
Terrible experience. My new go pro max useless because of this app didn't pair with iPhone. Now I understand why a lot of people choose different 360 cameras instead of go pro. Highly not recommend it
Amazing app but
by tlstarnes on 2021/06/09 17:21
I love everything about the GoPro Quick app I just wish the edits on my iPhone would sync with the app on my iPad.
Mixed feelings.
by Iggiwigi1 on 2021/06/09 16:56
I loved the old version that I immediately paid for it. Then the new one showed up saying last is no longer supported but still works. New one works fine no so intuitive in my opinion but great results. But If I want all I need to pay again. So for now I use the old version but it keeps popping with upgrade version during my use and it’s annoying. Sometimes it crashes my current work which most often is not lost. Look I just paid for the old version and you seem to twist my arm with trying to force me to the new version which I do have but did not want to purchase again at this time…. Actually why should I pay again full price as a loyal customer ? Other then that these are great Apps
Loses its connection and won’t reconnect
by Blue Jay Hero on 2021/06/09 15:26
I have the GoPro Hero 7, it’s awesome when it works but it often loses its connection to the app and won’t reconnect.
It’s was better ..
by baedzie on 2021/06/09 15:04
I still like the app but the sound is terrible if you use the boost and if you use mix the music is too loud over the voice and those are the only two options to use the clips original audio, unless I’m missing something?
Not a fan of this app.
by Silverclown on 2021/06/09 14:46
This app is very slow and takes too long to share any videos. It feels like it only does whit it wants and if you try to export it becomes an all day process.
Something’s wrong
by rhy01 on 2021/06/09 12:15
Something is definitely wrong with this app rn. I opened the app to do a few edits and tried to connect to my gopro but the app is telling me I never had a gopro and it won’t find it unless I connect through the gopro itself. Not only that, when I manage to connect the gopro all my media is gone from both the app and the camera. But when I check the camera everything is there. When I disconnect the camera from the app, everything goes back to normal except the gopro is now missing from “my gopro” and have to do the whole reconnecting again. This ain’t cool what’s going on?
Camera download is broken
by fxstein on 2021/06/09 06:05
This app is beyond annoying for a product that relies on it. Multiple H9s that need to be downloaded to iOS. Stuck with this app that freezes, is beyond slow, eats mobile data like crazy (like 50 GB in a matter of 3 days of using it - without intending to use mobile data at all). Turns out you need to use really stupid work arounds like putting the phone in airplane mode when you want to download images or videos from a Hero 9. When the app crashes - like it does daily, the Skip button on downloads is always grayed out - so you have to download everything again and hope the app wont crash again. All of that on the latest iPhone (12 Pro Max), iOS, lates App release, latest H9 firmware. When you sell a product like the Hero 9 it needs to work out of the box. These issues are so widespread according to the forums, its clear that the software quality is lacking severely. Why do I need to work with support to make the basic functionality of a premium product work?
Crashes Constantly

Not good anymore
by master10r on 2021/06/08 21:27
Before they changed it to quik. My GoPro would sync up with my phone and I could view the media that was on my camera. Now it’s called quik and I can’t get it to sync with my phone at all. Pairing process acting up, keeps saying something might be blocked etc but there’s nothing in my settings that’ll prevent it from working. It’s the same setup as it was before they updated it. Maybe it just doesn’t work with hero 5 session. The older app have no problems with the session . Bring back the older one.
Before they updated
by Sandip D on 2021/06/08 20:25
Quik was a free app to create beautiful video. Now I can see only possibility is by getting a subscription. They took away the free version completely. What a disgrace.
Frustrating
by Tfromtifton on 2021/06/08 18:03
I’m very good with tech, with apps, and with my iPhone 12 Pro. This has to be one of the most frustrating apps I’ve ever tried to use! Each day, they are updating and trying to sell an additional feature. Apple, get rid of this application. Grrrrrrr!

8.6 -> 8.6.1 After Only a Day!
by Vaxhacker on 2021/06/08 16:06
I’m one starring for now because *of course* today is the event I was trying to livestream on Twitch and 8.6 crashed on both my iPhone SE 2nd Edition and iPad Pro. Should be a small group of us but can you work out a deal where all GoPro users who had Twitch accounts before the release of 8.6.1 can upload videos, currently limited to users with significant subscribers? Spent much frustrating time attempting to get 8.6 to work. I guess also we need to be subscribers to post in the forums? Created a free account but guess that’s not good enough. I’d cut the review to half a star with the developer response. I’m *barred* from posting on the forums as only subscribers can post like I noted in the first paragraph.
From great to annoying
by Mirrorgram user on 2021/06/08 14:05
I used the quick app all the time until it forced me to the new version. Its just another headache and nuance to deal with vs a better experience. Its frustrating that it was so helpful to now a pain in the butt. Nobody really cares as long as they make that $$$$$. Now i gotta find a better vid app to replace this. Pretty lame
Easy for a quick video
by dragonknightz on 2021/06/08 12:35
This is great for a real quick way to get a video ready and out to our social media! Some basic edits that help and a great selection of music.
Very upset
by Gasalinagp on 2021/06/08 09:50
I hate the new update 😭 Moving to another app....
Nice app needs more features
by Easton and Lennox's Dad on 2021/06/08 09:29
I like the app but the features seem to plain and boring. Definitely needs a more pro version or possibly a way to switch between a beginner or pro mode. Also, the title of the app on my phone is confusing.. stick with simply GoPro. Either way I love the GoPro and I got it for using it as a dash camera and recording my kids in their POV. Very very happy with not only the GoPro quality but the durability and overall design and smaller size of it. The video and image quality is truly amazing! I have the Hero 8 Black and will definitely be upgrading and getting more GoPro’s!
Bad edits
by chezystezy on 2021/06/08 05:19
Decent app of GoPro, but horrible for making videos. Quik got turned into this, and Quik was great and I made a lot of videos with it. This new GoPro quik is so bad, I can’t even watch my videos
unable to access own music like previous version
by VonBytch on 2021/06/08 02:17
got a note from dev assuming I was talking about the free version. No it was the paid version which I canceled after finding out I can no longer access my music files as before. Other users have also mentioned this.
GoPro Hero 4
by yeet546 on 2021/06/08 00:44
Disappointing app, I used to have no problem connecting my GoPro to the app until Quik came out. Now I can’t connect on my IPhone 12 Pro Max or IPad. It’s like they are making older GoPros obsolete like Apple does. Yes, I have done all the updates.
Ruined the Original App
by Senor Ford on 2021/06/08 00:43
I have been a very avid user of the original quick app over the last number of years… And all of a sudden they switched to a new version and completely ruined it… Doesn’t work properly, makes no sense on how to edit… I don’t know why they didn’t just add more filters to the old one...Searching for a new Video editor??
Silly name change hurts your brand
by mansdad on 2021/06/07 23:55
I haven’t even downloaded the update yet, automatically gets one star because you changed the name, completely unnecessary and confusing, seriously considering deleting the app altogether and recovering all my video directly from the memory card.
saving to cloud
by kyloh-chan on 2021/06/07 23:38
gopro needs to make it easier to save videos and pictures, it’s complicated and it keeps telling me i have no storage when i paid for the yearly subscription that claims for “unlimited storage”

Go pro feedback

Editing takes forever
by Simon0469 on 2021/06/06 22:52
I only use this app because it’s the easiest way to get my footage but it’s pretty bad for editing because when you want start editing too much stuff it will freeze and kick you out of the app. Every time I try to edit the frame of a photo within a video the app just freezes up which is annoying. I would like to see an option where we can decide how much time we want to show each picture instead of what it is currently (short, normal, long). There’s just too many small glitches that make it annoying to use
not as good as old version

by ReplayzLogic on 2021/06/06 11:37
I can’t add any of my music to the new app and the older one was way better and easier to use give us the old one back I save music and it doesn’t go to GoPro quik but with the normal quik it was easy

HOW
by Cropduster879 on 2021/06/05 22:37
How does a company make so much money yet have the single worst editing app I’ve ever used in my life? Downloaded one video 3 times, never downloaded, still saying low res preview even though video is “completed” downloading. Cropped a video 3 times says to check it out in my media App Library, nothing there. Paid $500 for a brand new Hero 9 and this it’s already nothing but frustrating. I’ve had apple products for 10+ years and have never written a single review in the App Store, that should tell you something.
Background Activity Drains Battery
by Gnome2232 on 2021/06/05 13:40
The app works fine except I noticed my phone was draining much faster than usual. Took a quick peak at the battery in settings and in the last 24 hours it ate 27% of my battery due to “background activity”. I haven’t used the app in several days.
App keeps Crashing

I just stopped using my GoPro’s altogether because of this app. Every other video has issues downloading to my iPad or iPhone. Constant “failed” downloads, that was never the case before. I bought the insta and never looked back. Saved me so much time not having to deal with GoPro app issues anymore!

My music option gone
by Iceman111011 on 2021/06/03 06:48
Why can’t I add my own music from iCloud or my files ? You have removed that feature from this app unlike the old one which had this feature. I really don’t understand the reasoning behind it.
Unfortunate Purchase. Letdown & Disappointed.
by missfitgirl on 2021/06/03 05:05
Unfortunately I already paid for a 1 year subscription to the app BEFORE I realized that I have zero options to keep the original audio of my video... which would make the most sense for the video I’m referencing. Very unfortunate and disappointing for me. I’m out the money with no other options. Incredibly disappointed.

Live Photos gone
by What thrice ever on 2021/06/02 21:11
The update isn’t as user friendly and will take some getting used to. There is no longer a theme for Live Photos which is extremely disappointing. Also, even in the Raw theme my videos look heavily filtered vs what they are in my camera roll. This used to be my all time favorite video app and I created several videos a month. I can’t find a similar app that offers Live Photos and no filters or crazy transitions. Please bring back these features.
Add landscape view to iPad!!
by SquatchSlaya on 2021/06/02 20:34
This app desperately needs landscape and keyboard support for iPad. I’m baffled it still doesn’t have it. Until then, this app is borderline useless for me.

Why
Scrap app
by nick luong on 2021/06/02 11:36
I used to have original Quik. It was free and good to use. I loved it however now they are undertaken by Gopro and asked me to pay subscription. I did but then when i made a project it again asked me to pay. I tried to pay but it asked me to contact support because my app was used by another one. I was confused and emailed support however they never responded. I hope someone read this and contact me. I myself think that the original version was better than the Gopro. It waa quicker and automatically made slides.
Reading Reviews...
by coreyawatkins on 2021/06/02 03:21
I see the review numbers, “4.8 out of 5”? Im confused, I read like 30 reviews and all were bad and made this camera sound basically unuseable and a waste of money.. So why does the review say 4.8 out of 5..

This app is horrible, not user friendly, the old app was great. This one is cropping my photos to make a video I hate that I want full photos, tried landscape and portrait, still losing some of the pics. Bring back the old version, hate this one!!!
Frustrating stuff.
by Bill Bisquick on 2021/06/01 16:56
Beware: you’ll loose original audio if you save and export using this software. Each edit you make will also fade to black with a big GOPRO logo. So dumb. Oh no oh no oh no no no no no.
Needs fine tuning
by shaferdanielr on 2021/06/01 13:19
Love this for my 360 Max footage editing but needs a few tweaks: 1) You cannot delete a highlight! Once it’s there it’s there forever apparently 2) It needs a button to mark entire clips as selects/Favorites once you have downloaded clips to your App gallery page. the 360 footage uploaded to the Cloud can’t be reviewed in a proper rectilinear fashion until it’s downloaded to the App page so I am forced to download all of my footage to see what’s good. Currently the only way to mark selects is to highlight within a clip. And you can’t remove that. I’d like to favorite clips from the App gallery page

The GoPro Quik app suddenly stopped working well after an update and using a fusion feels as if I’ve been sabotaged. After the initial complaints the fusion studio has started working so for that I am grateful.
THIS APP SUXXXXX!!!!!!
by JDogDiggy on 2021/05/31 18:57
Doesn’t do anything it’s supposed to Nothing goes to the cloud (why am I paying for that?) Vids /pics from the camera take up too much storage on your phone so when u make a video you can’t play it even if u save it then remove the downloads from the camera Then the app just shuts off and removes all your progress whenever it wants I could go on but I’m just blown Don’t waste your time on this crap
Frustrating trying to edit and share between phone app and laptop
by aokek on 2021/05/31 04:31
Have not found a way to edit the file between phone app and pc. Read that many share the same frustration. The edit part that creates mini videos is nice. Wish I understood more.
It’s great
by Jay DAWg42 on 2021/05/31 04:03
This app is a great way to access your go pro through you phone.
Missing some old features
by MommaCharisma on 2021/05/31 02:10
I have not enjoyed the transition to this app from the old one. Specifically I’d like to see the option to edit movies with the “Live Photo” options come back. I loved integrating Live Photos into my movies.
A bad upgrade
by MrsPR on 2021/05/30 23:04
The previous ap was so much lire user friendly. This was is not how can I use the previous version as this used to be my go to ap... so dissatisfied especially no focus fir the Pic etc...
Less editing options
by Kster13 on 2021/05/30 22:28
I have used quick for a long time now and my old app told me to download this new one and it would have more features, but when I did there are less songs, less features and it seems to no longer be playing my Live Photos, so far I am not impressed...also they have made it so I can no longer use the old app! Not happy
GoPro review read all!
by Ph0enix1020 on 2019/05/12 20:27
I mean it’s a good app unlike everyone else says Because then they probably don’t know how to use it (read all) I have a GoPro even though I know that I’m probably not gonna use it much only on trips and vacay’s but i still keep it just in case... let’s talk about the features okay we’ll Im first off you can live stream which is awesome you can see what your camera is seeing in live time even with sound! so it’s like a mini security camera second off you can download pictures and videos from your GoPro at any time but warning it does take a while which I don’t like but after a while you download it/them also when you first get the app it will take some time to start it up but then things will run smoothly. I normally don’t do reviews this is probably my first time doing one so I made it a bit long and thorough but what this whole passage was saying is, it’s a good app and even though you might not use it that much it still helps.
Constant media upload issues
by wildbill707 on 2020/04/16 20:06
Using my Hero7 Black with my IPhone 8 has been troublesome. I have just recently started using the camera (3 months now) and I’ve been taking photos and videos and uploading them to my social media without any issues. I just took a video recently and it will not appear on my camera roll no matter what I do. Just spent One Hour and 30 Minutes on the phone with customer support troubleshooting countless different methods in order to be able to upload thise specific videos to my phone and it is not working. I took the video in 1080P 30FPS so there shouldn’t be a compatibility issue. I’ve tried saving the videos onto my computer, reformatting the SD card, and then re-uploading the videos back to the SD card to upload to the app to no avail. Even if it will begin to upload new media my old media is useless and I fear this is going to become a common occurrence with this camera and app. I know this app has had its problems but I can’t determine if it’s the app or my camera so I’m at a loss. It’s hard to be happy with a device when after 3 months you can't upload your media onto the only compatible app that works with the device. The customer support for GoPro is really great at least and they tried their best but you would think that the app developers would put some more effort into making the media transfer as seamless as possible. For a $300-$400 camera that should not be too much to ask.
Irritating features
by MrsDrMom on 2021/05/15 16:17
Without paying $10-50 annually for the app, it seems you can import photos/videos exactly once (unless you delete and reinstall the app). Adding several photos/videos to an event on the mural can sometimes cause the app to randomly decide that something in the data is a duplicate (when it isn’t), and the app therefore fails to migrate those file sets to the mural. When the import function failed directly from the photo cache, it took an hour for the tech support to finally suggest opening a single image in the mural as an alternative to add more photos/videos (only succeeding while in the editing feature). If you edit something, you have to avoid using “premium features” (or you have to guess what they are and remove them) before you can save the video. Once you finally save your edit, you can send that video back to your camera roll. To avoid duplicate memory issues with the app, it should have an option to delete photos/videos from the photo cache (but it doesn’t)... so to clear the queue the community solution that makes the most sense is to delete the app. Seriously irritating logistics aside... technically you can edit photos into a slideshow. But every time a task is finished, expect to delete and reinstall the app again. Two stars is the equivalent of a grade D for the design.
Go pro could do so much better
by Jerry jeep on 2019/09/22 02:02
Love the H7 hate this app, ok so the media pulled from the GoPro saves to its sand boxed library and you have to then export it again from there to your local files, older version did not act this way. Gets very disorganized because it does not tell you that you sent it over you just get one in the app and now one in the photos section. A little search shows it “does not double your data” but uses some kind of image shortcut hack, doubtful! You can export the same pic/vid many times and it just adds more complexity duplicating itself. No way to tell that it’s on your device so you have to look in two different locations for the same media, and you can make many copy’s that will just be scattered around in random creation order on the iPhone photos side, huge fail from a marketing idea which keeps you trapped using there branding style editing software which is terrible, if it was good enough to work well it wouldn’t be such a big deal and would welcome the sandboxed media, but I have to burn it through there firewall to unlock it and basically after I sort out my few projects on this iPhone I’m just going strait to the pc from here forward! Please don’t make this harder than it should be GoPro! Can’t even share albums inside your app, don’t try to limit us in your corner we know the grass is greener on the other side...
Great features in theory, but glitchy and almost unusable
by saleen8927 on 2019/11/15 00:24
GoPro (and the app) have some great features, and the video quality of their cameras makes gopro one of the best choices out there (although I understand others are quickly catching up). The app isn’t all that user-friendly, but I can live with that. The problem is that the connectivity between app and camera is terrible. I tried two different cameras and two different phones with the same results. It connects successfully maybe 25% of the time. Closing out of the app and restarting is usually fixes the problem (not always), but it’s very frustrating to never know if it will work or not. If you’re hoping to be able to start the camera remotely to quickly catch action, don’t count on it. It also constantly loses connectivity randomly, so don’t expect to rely on it for a live view experience. The auto upload feature is a great idea, where it automatically uploads your clips to the cloud when it connects to your home WiFi (or whatever WiFi you set), but in practice it never does it automatically. Beyond that, their solution for organizing and editing video is subpar and definitely not meant for a pro or anyone who does more than upload a few vacation pics here and there. GoPro might have the name recognition, but that’s where it stops.
New app is poor with quik integration
by Reviewer245335 on 2019/08/02 22:35
Up until the recent update making videos was easy and flawless. But with the new quik integration it’s weak compared to the separate quick app. First the highlights is probably the worst part. You could previously slide the highlight marker to the exact frame now it’s guess and check I have to go back to the quik video to see if it even tagged the right spot then when it’s not right I have to go back in to edit mode. It’s back and forth on every clip and takes me 2-3 times longer to edit now. Old app tag the frame ... next clip ... done, already miss it. The music selection seems to be less than before as well. Why default to 4:3??? Does anyone even have a 4:3 display device these days. And why not default to original size?? Maybe I missed that on the old app but I can’t make a video in the new app with out either cutting off parts of the sides or top. I hope this is just the first try and the app will improve and that the peeps at GoPro even read these reviews. I just upgraded to the new 7 from a 5 and the new app is the only reason I regret spending the $$$. It was so much better in the old app.
Amazing app. Does everything
by Dwave27 on 2019/08/20 11:02
GoPro has finally made the ultimate app. This app lets me make Quikstories that look great very quickly and I’ve basically stopped bothering with using Final Cut Pro to edit because of the ease of use and how great the videos turn out. My only complaint would be that gopro please support 4k resolution output from the app! That’s the only downside. I rarely shoot 4k and take full advantage of my Hero Black 7 because I know the final QuickStory will only be 1080 anyways... I joined Gopro Plus and LOVE how the gopro automatically uploads everything and anything new to the cloud whenever I plug it in. First time I plugged it in I had 128gb and it successfully uploaded ALL of that content, although of course it took awhile. Now I don’t need to worry about deleting videos to save space, etc. it’s all in the cloud forever and easy to access.
I love GoPro, but...
by EinsteinCubes on 2020/12/14 13:13
This app has a lot of cool and useful features. Downloading the footage to my phone is great and the video quality looks amazing. The videos are fun to watch and easy to share with friends. However, their video editing software isn’t great. The actually editing one is good, but the part where you combine multiple videos and edit them together is severely lacking. I end up exporting to iMovie on my phone, which is easier but also compresses the videos so they aren’t as crisp. This was before the update. I liked the app quite a bit. However, after the update it crashes very often. This morning, I couldn’t open the app at all. The difference? I added some videos to the new mural feature. I didn’t think it would be that catostraphic. Secondly, my Hero 8 connects without a problem but the new 9 just doesn’t connect. I have to switch the sd cards and then upload the 9s video via the 8. But this app still is useful and it’s nice to relive cool moments. Minor details need to be changed and the app definitely should be more stable, but it’s not bad.
Interesting toy, not a professional tool
by Faux tog on 2019/07/29 03:40
I find the software for both the Camera (Hero5 Black) and the GoPro App to fall sadly short of their advertised capabilities. The camera software is tediously slow and disconnects from the app randomly. Pairing it with the app is time consuming at best (when it pairs) and frustrating when it won’t. This process could be greatly improved by removing the need for password when pairing (or at least make it optional) and getting rid of screen lock altogether or at least increasing the time before it locks itself. I find myself having to unlock screen three to four times when switching between photo and video settings and reviewing media. The net result is I spend FAR too much time fiddling with controls when I should be taking pictures. This is my fourth GoPro, and in fairness, each has been better than the last. The integral water proof case is awesome and the image quality is steadily improving. I give this three stars because the GoPro system has a lot of potential, but right now the camera controls and app don’t live up to the hype.
Sluggish performance and can’t upload to cloud
by Big Bo Brown on 2021/04/29 13:54
I never write reviews but had to for this. Spent well over $500 for the Hero 9, GoPro Subscription and accessories. This app functions like the camera does. Sluggish and disappointing. GoPro advertises using their app for easy download and upload of your videos from the cloud but somehow it doesn’t work like that. I can download from the cloud no problem when uploaded from the camera itself. I edit my videos and pictures only to be unable to upload from my app back to the cloud of the finished project. There’s no progress bar or anything to let you know the upload is actually functioning properly. Just a cloud showing a “arrow” letting you know it’s uploading? I’ve been trying to upload 1 video for 5 DAYS and no success. You can edit the videos on the app and it works like every other editing app around. It also offers a quick custom video editor that works well so far. Very disappointed with how slow and janky this app is. Constantly crashes and freezes when just trying to go into the settings. Very unimpressed with it.
The app is ok when it works...
by jrodmckis on 2020/05/25 18:54
I just don’t understand why I constantly have connectivity issues. And it takes forever to preview or upload a video. I use the app to upload off the camera and download to my phone I have over 25gb of available space on my phone and 1.5tb of iCloud but it still tells me there’s not enough available space for 1-2 gb videos. I bought an brand new iPad sitting here and cannot preview a video... tried 5x disconnecting the camera reconnecting closing the app again and still I can’t preview or even download a 7 min video on a brand new iPad with over 20gb of space. I even thought about using the GoPro cloud subscription to help with this problem, but if I cannot even download or preview a 7 minute video on the app I don’t think I will invest anymore into the GoPro products. Btw I am using a GoPro hero7 white camera that I wouldn’t recommend at all. My 7 min video is still “waiting”’the whole time I typed this review on my iPad sitting on my lap it hasn’t even started to download. Only reason for 2stars is that when the app works it is ok. Only ok...
If I could give 0 stars I would
by GP4958382029;82910 on 2019/05/26 23:19
The gopro itself is a decent camera but the way it interfaces with this app is enough to make me want to sell it. This app is the least intuitive piece of software I have ever used and coming from such a large company thats just sad. I usually spend about 5-10 minutes trying to connect the camera (the only camera i ever connect) and when i finally do the gopro times out and turns itself off, disconnecting. Meaning i have to press a button on the camera every 4-5 seconds just to keep it alive, and when you’re trying to download something to the app that will take 20 minutes, you could see why this is maddening. The camera can be turned on and sitting next to the phone and it still takes 9 tries to connect it. Sometimes i have to connect through wifi, sometimes bluetooth, sometimes straight through the app. And not being able to give my camera a personal name? Just make it so only i can see that name and it wouldnt affect gopro in any way. This app behaves like one that is wayyy in beta. And it’s been like that for years now. Fix this gopro.
Cellular data blowout
by It'sWhen? on 2020/12/27 19:23
Within minutes of installing the app for my first GoPro, my phone said it was full. Confused, since that’s never happened before, I deleted a bunch of stuff off my phone. But, it quickly filled up again. I eventually was able to clear enough phone data storage so the app could access the camera for a firmware update. I took a picture and a short video, then turned the camera off. Later while I slept, the app, apparently running in the background, blew through my cellular data so quickly that phone battery died even while on a charger. During this time, the app managed to go through an astonishing 60GB of cellular data - or roughly 6 months of family use - in one night. The overage charges are beyond frightening. To put it bluntly, I deleted the app. I have NEVER experienced anything like this in the digital era. There is clearly something wrong with the default app settings. No new user should have to experience such a disappointment and potential financial setback upon simply trying out a new app with a Christmas gift.
Big issue
by bjerding on 2018/08/20 17:53
So I used to use my Go Pro Hero 4 session on this app and it worked great. I tried to use it yesterday and also today and still am unable to connect my Go Pro to the application. I have “ “forgotten” the WiFi network from the Go Pro and then tried to connect again. That didn’t work. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Nothing has worked. I keep getting stuck on the screen that tells me that I need to go connect the WiFi in my phone settings. So I do that and make sure it’s connected. Go back to the Go Pro app and a pop up comes up saying, “Oops, that didn’t work. There was a problem; try reconnecting to your camera’s WiFi in your iPhone’s settings.” And I am given the options “Get Support” or “Got it!” I have tried both options. Can’t find any new support on it... I have already followed all of the steps listed. Multiple times. My iPhone is also up to date and I have an iPhone 8 Plus. I really hope this gets fixed soon or else I don’t know what to do with my Go Pro.
Spotty Connection
by Life with Steve on 2020/12/17 19:29
EDIT: GoPro developer responded with steps to change Wi-Fi bands from 5 GHz to 2.4 GHz. This didn’t help. Additionally, there’s a new “update” that’s supposed to solve this issue. Seeing that my GoPro doesn’t connect, I had to manually download the update (which is a whole ‘nother can of worms). After installing the update to my SD card and installing, I still can’t connect or preview what the camera is seeing. This is a total waste of an app and at this point, based on the issues with the app, and lackluster performance of the camera, I wish I’d bought the Insta 360 One R. I’ve had both my GoPro Hero 8 Black, & the GoPro app since May/June of 2020 and this app has consistently gotten worse. Initially I had issues with it connecting while I previewed certain shots but as soon as I would start recording, it would drop the connection and I’d have to start over. Now, it doesn’t even connect to my GoPro; it’ll power it in but won’t display what the GoPro is displaying, nor will it connect in order for me to view what’s on my SD card.
Great Mobile remote for Gopros!
by .ZamaK. on 2020/07/16 00:42
I love every little feature about this app especially the fact that you can view your cameras media and control it and see what the camera sees on your phone live! My one little peeve is that there is no “Are your sure” warning when your about to download footage from you camera to your phone you might accidentally tap trash instead of download when in a rush. It would be great if a message would pop up when you tap trash that’s says “ are you sure you want to delete these files?” It would be great if this was added just to make your footage a little safer so you don’t accidentally delete footage permanently when quickly trying to download it. Other that this the app is great and I use it all the time! Highly recommend using this app if you have a GoPro.
Not as efficient as it used to be
by KTSurfs on 2019/06/15 20:41
I used to use the GoPro App all the time when I lived in Hawaii to capture all my surf and snorkeling and hiking pics. It was amazing because I could do everything wirelessly with my phone and never have to plug into a computer. It used to be fast and all my pics and videos downloaded fast. Nowadays, I don’t use it as often, but definitely in the last year I noticed that App has really downgraded in quality and efficiency when I’m downloading my pictures from my GoPro. My pictures do not all load. I can never see all of them and if they do appear in view, it’s blurry. I updated my GoPro with the latest firmware. My app is updated. Batteries on both devices are charged or plugged in. I don’t understand why the app pic download is so terrible now. I don’t understand why it has to use cellular data. I should be able to stay on my WiFi connection and still connect to my GoPro to get my picture and keep the speed of WiFi without having to use data. I connect to my Google Home and Chromecast with my phone and stay on my WiFi.
Poorly designed, flaky, frustrating
by Xyzzy999 on 2019/06/27 01:33
The app has tons of problems and irritations. For example, I’ve spent the hour annoyed with: - Connectivity problems. Connecting to the camera sort-of works over WiFi, but this forces a disconnection from WiFi with Internet. (Despite much fiddling, Bluetooth seems to not work for transferring images.) - The app is designed to download pictures into **GoPro’s** cloud service, but I don’t want to manage + pay for yet another cloud service. I want my pictures with my other iPhone/iPad photos... but putting them there seems to only be possible one photo at a time, using many taps, via the “share” interface. Ugh. - The app randomly switches the iPad into portrait mode, making it painful on an iPad with a keyboard connected. - Images display initially as a very low resolution thumbnail, then after a *long* delay a better version appears, making it a really tedious process to figure out which images are good vs. blurry. The high quality images don’t seem to be pre-fetched or cached.
Very confusing
by mkl323 on 2018/06/21 04:18
All I wanted to do was make a cool movie out of some short GoPro clips from vacation . There are barely any instructions at all. I’ve been messing with this for hours and still can’t figure it out . I can’t understand a few things. If I take a 2 min video and go back to watch it in the app and then out of that 2 mins I cut a clip out that’s 15 secs long why does that clip not save to the app so I can delete the 2 minute one. What’s the point of having the ability to cut and highlight clips and where do they save ??? It makes no sense to me that if I take a long video and go back to watch it and decide that I only want a minute of it that it doesn’t save anywhere . Then I tried quick and I can’t get my GoPro videos go transfer over . When I go into it and scroll down to GoPro it’s only showing 2 videos . I bought the GoPro so I could take cool clips when I’m away or fishing and make a movie out of them. Sorry , but if the 1 video that did transfer over Quik took like 10 seconds of it and made a movie if you can call it that. So far , it’s really aggravating.
Disappointed Gopro App for Gopro Max 360
by Igorlopeslimamarinho on 2020/07/03 05:17
I bought a Gopro Max 360 this week July 1, 2020 because I found the way to shoot 360 degrees very cool, but I am very disappointed with the limitation of the mobile application, I can't even make a slow motion or increase the speed of a selected part of my video, a simple task that any video editor does. Inside the app there is a type of Gopro Studio that makes short videos that is ridiculous to limit the time of the video with just over 40 seconds of maximum duration, that is, I would presume to cut my videos in several parts to be able to make a single video if my video is longer. Editing a song and choosing the selected part I want to cut is a joke. I will soon test the Gopro application on a Computer, but I already think that it will be very limited too. I have always heard of Gopro and never bought one, when it comes to capturing images I believe you are the best but I thought you were already very evolved in the issue of editing these images in your apps and honestly I did not expect this unpleasant surprise .
In critical need of bug fixes
by JaysonB. on 2018/10/02 15:58
The only reason this review isn’t getting one star is because if it was to function correctly I would have no complaints, I really love the user interface and what it is trying to achieve. However, ever since I got my GoPro Hero4 Black and downloaded this onto my phone, The app has progressively been getting worse. It’s gotten to the point where I take pictures but can’t see my pics once I go to my library. In order to see my pics, I’m forced to download all pictures individually onto my phone which takes up even more phone storage. A lot of times the app will cease to function, And I have to restart everything all over (Turn off Wi-Fi, restart Camera, force close the app). I ask that you fix this ASAP because it really takes away from the joy of using my GoPro and since I rely on the app as my viewfinder, and prefer taking pictures over video, this problem is just unfair and unacceptable to me as a customer. Please fix! Will rate higher once you do.
Missing features for fusion
by Mickie MANG on 2018/03/24 18:13
I bought the fusion on 3/12 and have been loving it. I hated how long it took to render videos on my computer then found out I could do them on my phone or iPad. It’s been way easier and faster using the app. After using it I realized it’s missing 2 key features that’s needed for the app and another one that would be nice to have. 1: joystick for editing. When I edit with my fingers by sliding the video it causes 2 huge issues. Knocks the video off it’s level, then I have to twist it back, and panning isn’t smooth. Using my phones accelerometer isn’t always ideal. Sometimes I can’t stand or spin to get the whole 360 degrees of video. If I want to edit on a plane or on the train, or anywhere in public, I can’t. 2: Add a panning feature for photos. Having a 360 camera is great, and there are times I want to show the whole 360 pic without making a tiny planet. In order for me to do this, I have to open the image, press screen recording, go back to the app, and spin in a circle. Once again a joystick would be nice since the pan is wobbly. 3: Split pic for selfies. There are cameras on both sides of the fusion, this allows me to catch both the action and my reaction. It would be nice if there was a way to export 2 views in 1 pic/video without having to create 2 exports and putting them together using another app.
Pro Videographer Review
by Mercury is my last name on 2019/05/05 18:09
As a professional videographer I highly recommend the go Pro hero seven along with the go Pro app and Quik video maker. For every day social media posting this is the absolute easiest, fastest and most professional looking video on the market. Especially the hero seven hyper stabilization!! I would not recommend shooting much video at night as your video can get pretty grainy but any daytime shooting or sunset shooting or shooting that would not allow for a big rig this is the way to go hands down. Big props to go pro for creating such amazing user-friendly applications to go along with the amazing Hero 7 Black. I have never written a review on any app but after using this one I had to say something. Next will be music videos I make using the app. It can’t be done!
Really wish the attachments such as the speedometer was like it was in early 2019
by Seth15c on 2020/03/30 02:53
I love the camera and loved this app. It is amazing being able to throw the stickers for speedometer and maps right into your videos. I will say however I am kicking my self for updating the app in 2020. The features are less than what I had on the 2019 app. Plus the speedometer looks lame and childish now. Before it looked like a race car speedometer and you could see the degrees on the compass. I’m disappointed with the update. Also, I use to be able to size them all to the size I wanted. Now the g-force is huge and in the way. Even if I double tap to move it. GoPro if you could go back to allowing us to size the stickers and move them wherever the user decides like you did on the 2019 app I’d give you five stars and be much appreciative. Thanks for a great camera. But please how can I get the old stickers?
Camera download is broken
by fxstein on 2021/06/09 06:05
This app is beyond annoying for a product that relies on it. Multiple H9s that need to be downloaded to iOS. Stuck with this app that freezes, is beyond slow, eats mobile data like crazy (like 50 GB in a matter of 3 days of using it - without intending to use mobile data at all). Turns out you need to use really stupid work arounds like putting the phone in airplane mode when you want to download images or videos from a Hero 9. When the app crashes - like it does daily, the Skip button on downloads is always grayed out - so you have to download everything again and hope the app wont crash again. All of that on the latest iPhone (12 Pro Max), iOS, lates App release, latest H9 firmware. When you sell a product like the Hero 9 it needs to work out of the box. These issues are so widespread according to the forums, its clear that the software quality is lacking severely. Why do I need to work with support to make the basic functionality of a premium product work?
System crashes
by VSanz80 on 2018/07/31 16:34
I like the image of the camera but when taking photos it takes a lot to save the images. Also for some reason very often the camera frozen not letting me press on any commands. I have to turn it off and restart it to be able to preview the video. When loading the videos for preview it takes a long time and if I want to replay a video it frozen again. When I’m using the app with my iPhone sometimes won’t let me start recording saying the camera is in use. Regarding the battery life is better to have an extra battery. In my case (since photos take forever to save) I prefer recording a video but battery doesn’t last long. 2 to 4 hours turning off the camera in between videos to save battery life (it’s a pain). I do like the under water images the body of the camera and the options in resolution with the image stabilization.
This is so much worse than the original Quik app
by jarnomansfield on 2021/05/07 20:28
This app is infuriating, I was a dedicated user of the old Quik app and though I wasn’t thrilled to find out that it’s now been changed to be subscriber supported for what used to be completely free, I understand that if I want it to improve than I’ll happily pay the cost…..HOWEVER, it won’t even apply the subscription, I can’t import from my phone, it just displays the splash screen to subscribe, restoring purchase does nothing signing in does nothing registering your GoPro camera does nothing to actually unlock the app to just simply allow you to import and edit videos saved to the device. I’m really disappointed GoPro I’m pulling for you, I love your cameras but how dare you force me to use this new app take away functionality and put me in a Infinity loop of bugs after I’ve given you the money for the subscription, I’ve already lost one edit that took me an hour to make….. FIX THIS IMMEDIATELY.
GoPro isn’t there yet. Sad.

First, the Hero 7 Black takes beautiful action videos in daylight. However, The overall experience is clunky with the camera itself, the mobile app and the desktop version. It’s actually quite disappointing. Do I really need a master’s degree in computer science to shoot videos and edit them? Okay, that’s a bit of hyperbole but you get the point. I have top-end gear and I expected the GoPro experience to be seamless. Shoot videos, no weird settings/defaults, just point and shoot like an iPhone and have the basic magic happen. Plug it into my computer and use the app to import and edit the videos. Simple request. Instead, the desktop app imports only SOME files (using the approved high-end SD card), their desktop app can’t play it’s own videos (when VLC does — it’s a $3,000 laptop so it should on GoPro’s app too). Time lapse imports every frame as a separate file on the desktop app and plays them with massive stutter in the newest mobile app (iPhone XS max). Default settings on my laptop/phone. In addition, the extra functions on the GoPro camera itself are clunky — having to hit buttons twice, accidentally hitting buttons and having the thing go to hell, having the camera off and having it turn on if I accidentally hit the record button. The entire vision of what the GoPro and software does and how the camera/workflow integration is done needs to be revisited from the ground up. Period. Period.
New update is awesome.

The GoPro app now the Quik app has always had a love hate relationship with me. I loved a lot of the features (especially the unlimited cloud with the GoPro subscription) but the one thing that always agitated me was the lack of speed ramping. This feature alone was the key reason I did not use the Quik app for editing and preferred premiere. With this new update it makes it so much easier to edit. As a college student who often lacks the time to shoot something let alone edit it, I was frustrated with the long process of premiere. Once this feature came out along with better filters, I find myself Turing to Quik over premiere simply because how simple and effortless everything is on this app. GoPro you’re killing it!
Consistently poor experience, been waiting for a stable running app for YEARS.
by Liamo71 on 2021/04/12 03:28
I can’t believe how much time and effort I’ve wasted trying to transfer files from the GoPro app (now Quik) to my iPhone XS, so I can edit with iMovie ... it is infuriating and inconsistent, and no amount of clipping/ trimming the video files, and no amount of phone restarts does anything ... and I’m sitting on ~75gb available for storage, so it’s not like I’ve got a capacity issue. GoPro, this has been going on for years. Perhaps I should give up (after 4 different gopros and accessories I e bought over the years), and move to Insta360, or anyone else that can develop a basic app. I mean, when the GoPro costs half as much as an iPhone, I may as well just invest in iPhone mounts and just record video with it directly since the GoPro app is so bad. The app gets 1 star because I do appreciate being able to double check my camera angle with my phone before hitting record and walking away, otherwise it would be getting zero.
UPDATE: NO STARS FOR THIS TIDDLYWINK APP
by Shonamutt on 2019/05/25 12:44
All I want to do is save a clip from a video to my camera roll. Been trying for over an hour. Very poor instructions (still looking for them). When I’m fishing I run video then snip the clips I want. Very hard on iPhone. UPDATE: Here is GoPro response to my review: How to do it To grab a still frame from a video follow these simple steps here below: Tap the Media Library icon in the bottom right hand corner of the app Select the video you want Click on the Photo Icon next to the Scissors icon on the bottom of the app Scrub through frame-by-frame to the image that you'd like to share Select "Next" in the upper right hand corner Select where you'd like to share it to, and you're all set! Totally off topic. I already figured this out. GoPro please reread the original review. I want an easy way to SAVE MY STUFF (COMPLETE AND WHOLE FULL RES VIDEO AND PICS) TO THE CAMERA ROLL ON THE IPHONE OR IPAD. DOWN GRADE THE REVIEW TO: Zero stars App is designed for children who need to be told what to do and how to do it not for people who are capable of thinking for themselves or — heaven forbid — actually know what they want to do. I like my camera but the App is crap. I want more cameras but won’t buy GoPros if the app is not fixed soon. All I want is to easily save the full image and video with all metadata to camera roll. Should be simple many other apps can do this. Just a simple download and save that’s it and that’s all I need.
Love the Camera, Disappointed in this App
by Super SARS on 2018/12/13 17:48
I am a long time GoPro user and have had multiple camera’s over the years. And to be fair, I have always been happy about my purchases. But that was until I got my hero 5 black and started trying to use it on the app. Here’s why: I film videos on my GoPro using the GPS feature so I can track my speed or location while recording. It is a great feature. Unfortunately, you are only able to retrieve this data if you download to the GoPro app. I would have no problem with this if it actually worked. But every time I plug my Quik Key into my iPad or other iOS device, it ends up not previewing the files, being unable to download them and the app ends up crashing and closing. My app is up so date, my Quik Key is the newer one, my camera is updated and the SD card is formatted properly. And these aren’t even long videos! If I can, I am able to import to the a directly from the camera. Unfortunately, this kills the camera battery and takes so long. Overall, -The app always crashes -It isn’t comparable with the GoPro Quik Key -It is really slow You would think the app designed for an “ACTION CAMERA” would be better at actually doing the ACTIONS it is designed to do. This review saddened me to write because I love this camera. But GoPro, this is a fail and a big one. Even your own accessories don’t work with your own app. One Star rating until see improvements
Slow and frustrating
by The_Skip11 on 2020/08/08 07:34
The editing on your phone is great. Try to do anything else and expect to be frustrated for 24 hours. Uploading footage to the cloud is slow. Downloading footage to the app is slow. And deleting stuff on my phone so there is space is slow. It’s really frustrating that the cloud isn’t better. Especially since I pay $5 a month for it. I wish I didn’t have to download footage to my phone in order to edit it. I want to be able to do that directly from the cloud. But that’s not an option so again, expect to be frustrated and for it to take 24 hours. I have to set up my GoPro overnight plugged in so it can fully upload my daily videos to the cloud. And even when I wake up sometimes and check it, it errors out and I only get maybe 5/20 videos I was trying to upload. It needs to be better than this.
Gopro app
by SoaR Gabe10 on 2019/11/30 04:11
First off I own the GoPro hero 7 silver. It is an exceptional camera but it doesn’t really matter too much because I do not use it very much other than trips and vacations. I do not necessarily think My camera quality is what it looks like in the GoPro hero 7 silver trailer/ GoPro videos. However the app is not good at all. It makes me connect to the GoPro WiFi which disconnects me to whatever WiFi I am using. It would be much easier if instead if WiFi, it was only bluetooth. I assume I am doing the process correctly but when I enter the GoPro app on my GoPros WiFi, when I connect to the camera, and look at the media on my phone, the media takes a while to load and a lot of time closing out the app. I decided to write this review because this has happened to me every time I load the media, and is even happening to me right now as I try to look at the footage from my recent trip.
Mixed feelings
by Disappointed email user on 2021/04/19 14:01
I don’t love that they keep renaming and restyling the app icon. I’ve used my GoPro and the app for several years and from time to time it has a name I’ve never heard of and a different appearance, but it remains “the GoPro app” no matter what they call it. Their marketing is an inconvenience for users. I also don’t love having to sign into an app with a password to use my camera. The camera is locked to my phone. I secure my phone (with Apple’s help). I don’t enjoy an extra layer of complication to control my camera with the app. And that is what I need this app for—remote control of my camera. I don’t need “the GoPro app” to be Facebook. I don’t need it to be a video editor tbh. This video I take is not usefully edited on a phone. The constantly changing names and appearance and requirement of a password is counter to my purpose for taking video with my camera.
Used to be a one star for me but NOW!!
by vivnev3 on 2020/01/13 02:47
Before I knew how to properly use this app I was so frustrated with it. I didn’t think you could edit in the app at all except cut clips, BUT OH WAS I WRONG! All I had to do was download video/picture into my media and VOILA editing features as far as the eye could see! Sorry for making a bunk review when I just was uneducated about the way the app worked! Love my GoPro! it’s come v handy with us building our tiny home development. fueled our instagram/YouTube pages with the videos of how blissful -and irritating- it is to build your home from ground up. Looking forward to many more tiny home builds, designs, workshops, laughs, tears, and for sure puppy snuggle videos the go pro will capture!
Crashing updates as usual
by rlittke on 2019/09/30 03:34
I've owned several gopros and as usual, the apps and updates are always crashing, the cameras rarely work without crashing. Keeping them paired is always a problem. Updates fail windowless, fail to install properly and using a computer is no better. Update : bought the new GoPro 7 and once again truly disappointed. I would have known better. First time underwater with the new water proof housing tested it before I went down turned it on took a 7 second clip and turned it off. Went for my dive, and saw a couple of sharks at 60 ft. Went to turn on the GoPro, nothing, dead, tried several times. Got to the surface and pulled the Camara out, dry, tried to turn it on, nothing,dead, pulled the battery out,put it back in and it turns on and works fine. Hey Go Pro,want to tell me how I'm suppose to do that 60ft under water? Maybe you should work on that!? Wasted money once again.
GOPRO FIX THIS; Videos won’t download
by The Man5 1/2 on 2018/09/17 05:36
When I go to download the videos I recorded onto my phone using the app, it takes forever to download specific videos, and then when it gets to the end of the download, it says “converting your files to your quik story” and it sits there for a long time... one time I tried letting it sit for an hour and a half... it gets stuck. So I quit the download and open the app back up, and most of the videos I tried to download are not on the app. So I try to download them again, but when I pull down it goes straight to the “converting your files to your quik story” again. It won’t stop.. again, so I quit the app... again... the only way to get this to fix and download videos again, is if I delete the videos that never got downloaded. So my great shots I took have to be completely removed and never gotten to be seen because the APP WON’T WORK. This needs to be fixed.
May have damaged my SD card
by @lucia99 on 2020/01/08 06:52
I’ve been using this app for about a year since I got my Hero 7 Black. The camera itself has been glitchy and very disappointing but I had no issues with the app itself until recently. I was attempting to upload videos from snorkeling in Hawaii (I was very excited about the content) and the app immediately crashed. When I tried to open it again it said that I had no SD card. That was strange considering I had not removed the SD card yet. When I looked at my go pro and tried to view the media it said that there was a card error and all I could do was delete everything on it. Good bye cute turtle videos, so far GoPro has been nothing but a disappointment. Other than that however the app has worked pretty well, the videos I’ve downloaded in the past were smooth and quick to save.
Really good - not great (yet)
by RaptorSloth on 2021/04/25 15:52
Overall it’s a good app - still has some crashing issues - on iPad the app forces you to alternate from landscape to portrait mode, no setting I can see to stay in one mode. Could use some more video editing development - for example when editing/keyframing I’ve had several crashes and all the work I’ve done is erased - active saving is desperately needed for long video edits - there is a “save draft” option but since the app still suffers crashes, active draft saving would be much better. Also ATM when keyframing 360 videos you cannot alternate between orientation lock to unlock between consecutive key frames. You’ll have to create two separate videos one locked then another unlocked and splice those together after rendering.
Hilight tags are broken
by Diputswab on 2019/05/04 06:31
U can’t delete tags without using the desktop app. The tags usually miss the most exciting part and play the really lame stuff, and since you can’t edit this, it screws Quik up. Transfer speed is slow, which I found out the hard way is necessary because the desktop app often corrupts/deletes videos from the Hero when transferring (it’s a common problem, despite what card you use the software glitches and your videos disappear). the only way to avoid losing footage is to lethargically WiFi transfer each file to phone for backup unless you want to end up looking at a bunch of .LRV files in your DCIM folder. An avid user of both Gopro and Garmin action products, I can safely say that even though Garmin has flaws and isn’t as popular, they at least provide a complete hardware-software integration. Gopro software is always buggy and it feels like they give you the middle finger whenever commit to using it. I only keep this app for composing my shot and reviewing footage, but after 6 years of poor quality I’ve learned it’s better to just use the Remote and LCD bacpac + Extendercable instead of dealing with these shoddy apps. Remember, you paid for the camera, not the software which is all that matters to GoPro. NEVER trust GoPro to transfer files. Always back up to a separate storage device before you ever consider opening this app.
Needs to be clearer about what features require a subscription
by Lostinperiphery on 2021/03/23 20:22
I spent about an hour cutting and editing a handful of footage together to match the music I selected from within the GoPro Quik app. However, when I went to save the video, it would simply open a “subscribe to save” window, preventing me from saving the working file or the export unless I purchased a subscription. After spending some time with support, we finally determined that my choice of music was apparently a premium feature, even though it was not marked as such, nor did the app ever indicate that my music choice would require a subscription. Changing the music would have apparently allowed me to save, but then I would have lost all my carefully timed cuts :/ As it is, the app seems to be more sluggish and with more limitations than before the rebranding to “Quik”
Login Required - Insane Decision
by mancuj1 on 2017/09/04 10:31
Seriously, have you lost your mind requiring users to log in to use this app? I have been waiting a year to get this issue resolved and still no progress. I am going on an trip for 2 months and will not have international cell coverage while abroad. In addition, I am a pilot who uses your product during flight (where there is NO cell coverage). How do you expect your users to run this app with the asinine requirement of having to log in every time? A large percentage of your user base is remote & disconnected while using your products? Do you understand your user base at all? Maybe do some focus group testing PRIOR to modifying a functional working app just so that you can collect user data (which is none of your business to begin with). On a positive note, GoPro will have user data available to sell and market with - WHAT A RIDICULOUS, SELF SERVING, BRAINLESS & SHORT SIGHTED MOVE!!!! Fix this app by removing the login requirement!
Great camera! Ultra lame app
by alonzozilch on 2020/10/18 15:18
Why ? You think with GoPros revenue they could have a better interface for uploading videos and pics. This app makes me feel like I am back in the days of Windows 95. I have a Mac book pro and iPhone 11 and it’s still a hassle. I’ve been trying for a day to get it to upload my stuff to the GoPro plus cloud and no go!!!! Super frustrating. Makes me not want to use the camera anymore and just deal with my iPhone11 for action vids. Do better GOPro. Might have to rebrand yourself GoPoor. Besides the awesome quick customer service they have it has been a windows 95 flashback nightmare to get my vids to the GoPro plus cloud. After my customer service that was pleasant I still can’t get it to upload my stuff to the GoPro plus cloud. Seriously GoPro you have millions at your disposal and it’s 2020 DO BETTER !!!! Invest in app developers instead of buying good reviews. Most frustrating tech thing I’ve been through in years.
First time
by Dndjfnfjf on 2020/06/14 21:52
Just got my new GoPro and edited my first video. The App crashed a lot in the beginning. I learned I need to save often or it overloads the phone rams with all the sweet 4K footage. Some features were not available such as; I can add text to videos but it only appears in the beginning of that clip. I can create a highlight (short clip) but I can’t choose how long or short it can be. If I choose auto highlight and one part of the clip I don’t like because I was filming the ground I can’t just tell the app not to use the one specific highlight I have to manually do it even though I liked how the auto did it. Why!!! This could be a great app if it had just a few more features such as these. As a rookie user to editing I feel like I picked up IMovie way faster then this app initially. This was used with an IPhone 10.
Very impressed. Super easy to use!
by Me22. on 2019/10/24 06:41
Just got the Hero 8 (upgraded from a hero 4 black). The app (on an iPhone XR) is very fast and easy to use. It’s actually easier to view, watch, and even fast forward through videos on the app vs. using my MacBook Pro. In the past the app has been slow and had bugs. But now it easily connects to my GoPro hero 8 and I can pretty much instantly scroll through all of the videos and dragging the bar at the bottom to scroll through is very smooth as well. I trimmed the video, added gauges to it, then airdropped it to my computer from my phone and it looks very crisp (I assume the image quality remained in 4K) Well done GoPro, this is a huge step up from the past!
Falls way short for livestream
by iMamma on 2019/03/31 21:38
I wanted so badly to love the updates. I have used it without too much trouble for my Hero 5 black for years. I saw the updates for the live-streaming with Hero 7 black and took the bait. Sadly my first go was a complete failure. I did some testing at home and everything recognized and worked. Get to the game and it won’t recognize the WiFi or my hotspot for the livestream. So I ditch the livestream and just record and still had connection problems. I missed the first 3.5 innings before I realized it wasn’t recording at all even though I thought I was stopping the recordings and restarting it between innings. I’m giving 3 stars as it is likely the Hero 7 that is the issue but it all should work together it’s a package deal!😢 I am returning the Hero 7 and looking at other recording/livestream options.
Login requirement doesn't make sense for this app
by DoesEveryoneHaveToHave_a_Nick on 2017/10/11 23:04
Update October 2017: Don’t be fooled, this app only has high ratings because GoPro used new Apple store policy to let app developers wipe out old ratings, without giving users the ability to see ratings for previous versions! Nothing has changed! This useless app will still require you to sign in. You will not even notice until you are in a foreign country or in the middle of the ocean. It will conveniently log you out for unknown reasons and you won’t be able to log back in. Shame on GoPro and Apple. The end for GoPro is near... How many one-star reviews does it take for you to realize that we, the users (and potential buyers of your future products) do not want to login to your cloud just to be able to control OUR cameras. I might be in the middle of the ocean when I'm trying to use it. Or I might miss an important moment while trying to login. Just drop it, no one wants it!
Worthless feature
by Dan2737485839 on 2019/08/29 22:00
It would be nice if the app recognized that it was connected to my camera and didn’t bring up the ‘connect your camera’ screen while at the same time the app says ‘camera connected’. This locks the user out from actually using the app to control the camera and download media. In this instance it was working for a few minutes, as I was playing with different settings for a particular lighting condition, and all of a sudden it goes into this ‘connect your camera’ feedback loop when the camera WiFi is on, my phone is for sure connected to it, and the app itself says ‘camera connected’ on the screen where I pick between my different cameras. WiFi has never been GoPros forte, I have an older camera that none of the support staff can find a solution to resetting the password, so WiFi is not at all usable on that device. Incompetence makes it a worthless feature.

Another Subscription 👎
by SirMarkos on 2021/06/13 23:26
As if paying $500 for one of their cameras wasn’t enough but now you have to subscribe to do what you were able to do for free on the previous Quick app. I kept my last version and deleted this one. This one is trash. Even with the pop-ups in the older one, trying to get me to upgrade to this hunk of junk, it’s still better.

Please Help Me!!
by Anonymous writer three on 2021/06/13 17:05
First of all, I love the app so much. This makes editing videos and photos so much easier (or just plain possible) for me to do. I wish that it was possible to share photos taken with your GoPro without having to upload to the app, and then having to upload to Photos... I also scan my schoolwork in with GoPro, And this is so difficult, because of both MS Teams AND Quik needing some improvement. But I need help with slowing down my videos. None of my videos have an option to slow it down past 0.5x, is this because I have a GoPro Hero 7 Black? Because if so, I am not super impressed. Please respond, Quik. I do love my Slo-Mos.
Simply awful
by A Usual Apple App Lover on 2021/06/13 14:44
Unreliable. Not user friendly. No clear GoPro procedures for its use. Encountered repeated failures to upload media to cloud GoPro could do a lot better
Cool app but..
by Aymenbardi on 2021/06/13 14:33
I’ve been using Quik for a while now and while this new version came I’ve found out that I can’t import music from my Files on my iPhone and it’s been limiting me with the music options that I have on the app only.. can you guys suggest a solution?
Just ok
by Indie_Lady on 2021/06/13 11:53
No ability to add music on this new version. And of course they want a tank of gas to do what was once free. In my opinion, a boring copy of the previous version but much less exciting with features e Eyr other app has. Why reinvent the wheel? I would’ve paid for the old free version- this one I’m dumping.
Awesome camera and video

Waste??

App keep on crashing

When I try to add photos are videos, it’s keep on crashing. Iam using iPhone X.
Stop it
by Iamamover on 2021/06/12 20:16
It is so annoying every time I go to make a video, exit, come back in or make any changes your stupid pop up “try the new Quik for free” comes up. I just updated it so please just stop.
Crashes
by knlandon89 on 2021/06/12 19:09
Every time I try and open the app and use the create mode it crashes immediately.
Only acces to your app media
by GuajaDad on 2021/06/12 14:35
The old app let you select media from cloud and phone, and this one only from the app
Not good

No support!!! I pushed the bottom and got subscribed but won’t let me edit or make a video, why am I paying for subscription!!! No instructions NO HELP what is happening, why is this amazing app changed!!!!
Great App
by K1NG KY1E on 2021/06/12 01:52
Hard to connect but works great
You have to pay!
by Saminhs82 on 2021/06/11 22:56
The last update took the free version and now we have to pay to do anything in the app. I have been using it since hero 4 and it’s been awesome app to make cool videos but just deleted. Suddenly took the free version!
Glitchy and lack of editing options
by this_is_50 on 2021/06/11 20:52
The new quik app is extremely glitchy and takes forever to load files to add to video. Does not have as many editing options as original quik app. Not a fan of these changes. Takes me 10x longer to make a video with this new app.
Pay to use
by nsimoz on 2021/06/11 20:20
Used to be a great app but now everything behind a paywall thanks for nothing go pro I’ll take my memories somewhere else
Great for quick edits
by nemoDreamer on 2021/06/11 17:24
... but I wish there were support for start/end on Highlights: it's hard to get the auto-edit to "get" a longer section...
From Best to Worse!
by sshavers on 2021/06/11 13:14
The original quick app used to be so awesome and a pleasure to use. This new app is confusing and crashes often! Whomever is in charge of designing this new version of Quik should be fired! APPLE please remove the high rating for this app because it no longer applies! 😤
Music?
by AdManny9 on 2021/06/11 12:49
Why my music doesn’t show anything?!

Media doesn’t load!

Leave good enough alone
by Jet_Setter_DC on 2021/06/11 00:15
App was fine in its last iteration. Gone to complete sh t now. Issues connecting to GoPro, freezes all the time. Going elsewhere for my editing
this app is garbage
by Cobraa4545 on 2021/06/10 17:36
they are trying to make u pay for the editing that was free on the previous app because you just bought a $300 camera so y not!
Garbage app that never works
by bbee1590 on 2021/06/10 02:33
Consistently telling me to subscribe AFTER I HAD SUBSCRIBED TO A ONE YEAR SUBSCRIPTION. Waste of my time. Stupid app apparently is “unable to connect to iTunes” yet was very able to when it needed to take my $10! Garbage!
Not happy with this update (deleted app)
by KevyMUZAK on 2021/06/10 01:18
I am not happy with this update, for one I do not own a go pro and don’t think I will ever own one. I like the way it was so easily to create slide shows on my iPhone. I have read other peoples reviews and maybe they are right that I don’t know how to use it, but update theses days do not make apps better but more confusing with unnecessary functions and add features that you have to pay for so it can be work correct to its capacity. Since the original is no longer available due to it no longer being supported. so sorry to say I have deleted the app off my iPhone and iPad completely.

Didn't work with Iphone.
by Lutcenko suka blat on 2021/06/09 20:40
Terrible experience. My new go pro max useless because of this app didn't pair with iPhone. Now I understand why a lot of people choose different 360 cameras instead of go pro. Highly not recommend it
Amazing app but
by tlstarnes on 2021/06/09 17:21
I love everything about the GoPro Quick app I just wish the edits on my iPhone would sync with the app on my iPad.
Mixed feelings.
by Iggiwigi1 on 2021/06/09 16:56
I loved the old version that I immediately paid for it. Then the new one showed up saying last is no longer supported but still works. New one works fine no so intuitive in my opinion but great results. But If I want all I need to pay again. So for now I use the old version but it keeps popping with upgrade version during my use and it’s annoying. Sometimes it crashes my current work which most often is not lost. Look I just paid for the old version and you seem to twist my arm with trying to force me to the new version which I do have but did not want to purchase again at this time…. Actually why should I pay again full price as a loyal customer ? Other then that these are great Apps
Loses its connection and won’t reconnect
by Blue Jay Hero on 2021/06/09 15:26
I have the GoPro Hero 7, it’s awesome when it works but it often loses its connection to the app and won’t reconnect.
It’s was better ..
by baedzie on 2021/06/09 15:04
I still like the app but the sound is terrible if you use the boost and if you use mix the music is too loud over the voice and those are the only two options to use the clips original audio, unless I’m missing something?
Not a fan of this app.
by Silverclown on 2021/06/09 14:46
This app is very slow and takes too long to share any videos. It feels like it only does whit it wants and if you try to export it becomes an all day process.
Something’s wrong
by rhy01 on 2021/06/09 12:15
Something is definitely wrong with this app rn. I opened the app to do a few edits and tried to connect to my gopro but the app is telling me I never had a gopro and it won’t find it unless I connect through the gopro itself. Not only that, when I manage to connect the gopro all my media is gone from both the app and the camera. But when I check the camera everything is there. When I disconnect the camera from the app, everything goes back to normal except the gopro is now missing from “my gopro” and have to do the whole reconnecting again. This ain’t cool what’s going on?
Camera download is broken
by fxstein on 2021/06/09 06:05
This app is beyond annoying for a product that relies on it. Multiple H9s that need to be downloaded to iOS. Stuck with this app that freezes, is beyond slow, eats mobile data like crazy (like 50 GB in a matter of 3 days of using it - without intending to use mobile data at all). Turns out you need to use really stupid work arounds like putting the phone in airplane mode when you want to download images or videos from a Hero 9. When the app crashes - like it does daily, the Skip button on downloads is always grayed out - so you have to download everything again and hope the app wont crash again. All of that on the latest iPhone (12 Pro Max), iOS, lates App release, latest H9 firmware. When you sell a product like the Hero 9 it needs to work out of the box. These issues are so widespread according to the forums, its clear that the software quality is lacking severely. Why do I need to work with support to make the basic functionality of a premium product work?
Crashes Constantly

Not good anymore
by master10r on 2021/06/08 21:27
Before they changed it to quik. My GoPro would sync up with my phone and I could view the media that was on my camera. Now it’s called quik and I can’t get it to sync with my phone at all. Pairing process acting up, keeps saying something might be blocked etc but there’s nothing in my settings that’ll prevent it from working. It’s the same setup as it was before they updated it. Maybe it just doesn’t work with hero 5 session. The older app have no problems with the session . Bring back the older one.
Before they updated
by Sandip D on 2021/06/08 20:25
Quik was a free app to create beautiful video. Now I can see only possibility is by getting a subscription. They took away the free version completely. What a disgrace.
Frustrating
by Tfromtifton on 2021/06/08 18:03
I’m very good with tech, with apps, and with my iPhone 12 Pro. This has to be one of the most frustrating apps I’ve ever tried to use! Each day, they are updating and trying to sell an additional feature. Apple, get rid of this application. Grrrrrrr!

8.6 -> 8.6.1 After Only a Day!
by Vaxhacker on 2021/06/08 16:06
I’m one starring for now because *of course* today is the event I was trying to livestream on Twitch and 8.6 crashed on both my iPhone SE 2nd Edition and iPad Pro. Should be a small group of us but can you work out a deal where all GoPro users who had Twitch accounts before the release of 8.6.1 can upload videos, currently limited to users with significant subscribers? Spent much frustrating time attempting to get 8.6 to work. I guess also we need to be subscribers to post in the forums? Created a free account but guess that’s not good enough. I’d cut the review to half a star with the developer response. I’m *barred* from posting on the forums as only subscribers can post like I noted in the first paragraph.
From great to annoying
by Mirrorgram user on 2021/06/08 14:05
I used the quick app all the time until it forced me to the new version. Its just another headache and nuance to deal with vs a better experience. Its frustrating that it was so helpful to now a pain in the butt. Nobody really cares as long as they make that $$$$$. Now i gotta find a better vid app to replace this. Pretty lame
Easy for a quick video
by dragonknightz on 2021/06/08 12:35
This is great for a real quick way to get a video ready and out to our social media! Some basic edits that help and a great selection of music.
Very upset
by Gasalinagp on 2021/06/08 09:50
I hate the new update 😭 Moving to another app....
Nice app needs more features
by Easton and Lennox's Dad on 2021/06/08 09:29
I like the app but the features seem to plain and boring. Definitely needs a more pro version or possibly a way to switch between a beginner or pro mode. Also, the title of the app on my phone is confusing.. stick with simply GoPro. Either way I love the GoPro and I got it for using it as a dash camera and recording my kids in their POV. Very very happy with not only the GoPro quality but the durability and overall design and smaller size of it. The video and image quality is truly amazing! I have the Hero 8 Black and will definitely be upgrading and getting more GoPro’s!
Bad edits
by chezystezy on 2021/06/08 05:19
Decent app of GoPro, but horrible for making videos. Quik got turned into this, and Quik was great and I made a lot of videos with it. This new GoPro quik is so bad, I can’t even watch my videos
unable to access own music like previous version
by VonBytch on 2021/06/08 02:17
got a note from dev assuming I was talking about the free version. No it was the paid version which I canceled after finding out I can no longer access my music files as before. Other users have also mentioned this.
GoPro Hero 4
by yeet546 on 2021/06/08 00:44
Disappointing app, I used to have no problem connecting my GoPro to the app until Quik came out. Now I can’t connect on my IPhone 12 Pro Max or IPad. It’s like they are making older GoPros obsolete like Apple does. Yes, I have done all the updates.
Ruined the Original App
by Senor Ford on 2021/06/08 00:43
I have been a very avid user of the original quick app over the last number of years… And all of a sudden they switched to a new version and completely ruined it… Doesn’t work properly, makes no sense on how to edit… I don’t know why they didn’t just add more filters to the old one...Searching for a new Video editor??
Silly name change hurts your brand
by mansdad on 2021/06/07 23:55
I haven’t even downloaded the update yet, automatically gets one star because you changed the name, completely unnecessary and confusing, seriously considering deleting the app altogether and recovering all my video directly from the memory card.
saving to cloud
by kyloh-chan on 2021/06/07 23:38
gopro needs to make it easier to save videos and pictures, it’s complicated and it keeps telling me i have no storage when i paid for the yearly subscription that claims for “unlimited storage”

Go pro feedback

Currently I’m having a problem with the go pro where every time I turn it on it continues to start a recording of whatever is in front of the camera over and over and over.
Editing takes forever
by Simon0469 on 2021/06/06 22:52
I only use this app because it’s the easiest way to get my footage but it’s pretty bad for editing because when you want start editing too much stuff it will freeze and kick you out of the app. Every time I try to edit the frame of a photo within a video the app just freezes up which is annoying. I would like to see an option where we can decide how much time we want to show each picture instead of what it is currently (short, normal, long). There’s just too many small glitches that make it annoying to use
not as good as old version

by ReplayzLogic on 2021/06/06 11:37
I can’t add any of my music to the new app and the older one was way better and easier to use give us the old one back I save music and it doesn’t go to GoPro quik but with the normal quik it was easy

HOW
by Cropduster879 on 2021/06/05 22:37
How does a company make so much money yet have the single worst editing app I’ve ever used in my life? Downloaded one video 3 times, never downloaded, still saying low res preview even though video is “completed” downloading. Cropped a video 3 times says to check it out in my media App Library, nothing there. Paid $500 for a brand new Hero 9 and this it’s already nothing but frustrating. I’ve had apple products for 10+ years and have never written a single review in the App Store, that should tell you something.
Background Activity Drains Battery
by Gnome2232 on 2021/06/05 13:40
The app works fine except I noticed my phone was draining much faster than usual. Took a quick peak at the battery in settings and in the last 24 hours it ate 27% of my battery due to “background activity”. I haven’t used the app in several days.
App keeps Crashing
by 365251 on 2021/06/04 20:12

by The_Grand on 2021/06/04 15:30
I just stopped using my GoPro’s altogether because of this app. Every other video has issues downloading to my iPad or iPhone. Constant “failed” downloads, that was never the case before. I bought the insta and never looked back. Saved me so much time not having to deal with GoPro app issues anymore!

My music option gone
by Iceman111011 on 2021/06/03 06:48
Why can’t I add my own music from iCloud or my files ? You have removed that feature from this app unlike the old one which had this feature. I really don’t understand the reasoning behind it.
Unfortunate Purchase. Letdown & Disappointed.
by missfitgirl on 2021/06/03 05:05
Unfortunately I already paid for a 1 year subscription to the app BEFORE I realized that I have zero options to keep the original audio of my video... which would make the most sense for the video I’m referencing. Very unfortunate and disappointing for me. I’m out the money with no other options. Incredibly disappointed.

Live Photos gone
by What thrice ever on 2021/06/02 21:11
The update isn’t as user friendly and will take some getting used to. There is no longer a theme for Live Photos which is extremely disappointing. Also, even in the Raw theme my videos look heavily filtered vs what they are in my camera roll. This used to be my all time favorite video app and I created several videos a month. I can’t find a similar app that offers Live Photos and no filters or crazy transitions. Please bring back these features.
Add landscape view to iPad!!
by SquatchSlaya on 2021/06/02 20:34
This app desperately needs landscape and keyboard support for iPad. I’m baffled it still doesn’t have it. Until then, this app is borderline useless for me.
PLS ALLOW HORIZONTAL ROTATION FOR EDITING VIDEOS

Why
Scrap app
by nick luong on 2021/06/02 11:36
I used to have original Quik. It was free and good to use. I loved it however now they are undertaken by Gopro and asked me to pay subscription. I did but then when i made a project it again asked me to pay. I tried to pay but it asked me to contact support because my app was used by another one. I was confused and emailed support however they never responded. I hope someone read this and contact me. I myself think that the original version was better than the Gopro. It waa quicker and automatically made slides.
Reading Reviews...
by coreyawatkins on 2021/06/02 03:21
I see the review numbers, “4.8 out of 5”? Im confused, I read like 30 reviews and all were bad and made this camera sound basically unuseable and a waste of money.. So why does the review say 4.8 out of 5..

This app is horrible, not user friendly, the old app was great. This one is cropping my photos to make a video I hate that I want full photos, tried landscape and portrait, still losing some of the pics. Bring back the old version, hate this one!!!
Frustrating stuff.
by Bill Bisquick on 2021/06/01 16:56
Beware: you’ll loose original audio if you save and export using this software. Each edit you make will also fade to black with a big GOPRO logo. So dumb. Oh no oh no oh no no no no no.
Needs fine tuning
by shaferdanielr on 2021/06/01 13:19
Love this for my 360 Max footage editing but needs a few tweaks: 1) You cannot delete a highlight! Once it’s there it’s there forever apparently 2) It needs a button to mark entire clips as selects/Favorites once you have downloaded clips to your App gallery page. the 360 footage uploaded to the Cloud can’t be reviewed in a proper rectilinear fashion until it’s downloaded to the App page so I am forced to download all of my footage to see what’s good. Currently the only way to mark selects is to highlight within a clip. And you can’t remove that. I’d like to favorite clips from the App gallery page

Customer service not good
by Daslut on 2021/06/01 01:10
The GoPro Quik app suddenly stopped working well after an update and using a fusion feels as if I’ve been sabotaged. After the initial complaints the fusion studio has started working so for that I am grateful.
THIS APP SUXXXXX!!!!!!
by JDogDiggy on 2021/05/31 18:57
Doesn’t do anything it’s supposed to Nothing goes to the cloud (why am I paying for that?) Vids /pics from the camera take up too much storage on your phone so when u make a video you can’t play it even if u save it then remove the downloads from the camera Then the app just shuts off and removes all your progress whenever it wants I could go on but I’m just blown Don’t waste your time on this crap
Frustrating trying to edit and share between phone app and laptop

Missing some old features
by MommaCharisma on 2021/05/31 02:10
I have not enjoyed the transition to this app from the old one. Specifically I’d like to see the option to edit movies with the “Live Photo” options come back. I loved integrating Live Photos into my movies.
A bad upgrade
by MrsPR on 2021/05/30 23:04
The previous ap was so much lire user friendly. This was is not how can I use the previous version as this used to be my go to ap... so dissatisfied especially no focus fir the Pic etc...
Less editing options
by Kster13 on 2021/05/30 22:28
I have used quick for a long time now and my old app told me to download this new one and it would have more features, but when I did there are less songs, less features and it seems to no longer be playing my Live Photos, so far I am not impressed...also they have made it so I can no longer use the old app! Not happy
GoPro review read all!
by Ph0enix1020 on 2019/05/12 20:27
I mean it’s a good app unlike everyone else says Because then they probably don’t know how to use it (read all) I have a GoPro even though I know that I’m probably not gonna use it much only on trips and vacay’s but i still keep it just in case... let’s talk about the features okay we’ll Im first off you can live stream which is awesome you can see what your camera is seeing in live time even with sound! so it’s like a mini security camera second off you can download pictures and videos from your GoPro at any time but warning it does take a while which I don’t like but after a while you download it/them also when you first get the app it will take some time to start it up but then things will run smoothly. I normally don’t do reviews this is probably my first time doing one so I made it a bit long and thorough but what this whole passage was saying is, it’s a good app and even though you might not use it that much it still helps.
Constant media upload issues
by wildbill707 on 2020/04/16 20:06
Using my Hero7 Black with my IPhone 8 has been troublesome. I have just recently started using the camera (3 months now) and I’ve been taking photos and videos and uploading them to my social media without any issues. I just took a video recently and it will not appear on my camera roll no matter what I do. Just spent One Hour and 30 Minutes on the phone with customer support troubleshooting countless different methods in order to be able to upload thise specific videos to my phone and it is not working. I took the video in 1080P 30FPS so there shouldn’t be a compatibility issue. I’ve tried saving the videos onto my computer, reformatting the SD card, and then re-uploading the videos back to the SD card to upload to the app to no avail. Even if it will begin to upload new media my old media is useless and I fear this is going to become a common occurrence with this camera and app. I know this app has had its problems but I can’t determine if it’s the app or my camera so I’m at a loss. It’s hard to be happy with a device when after 3 months you can't upload your media onto the only compatible app that works with the device. The customer support for GoPro is really great at least and they tried their best but you would think that the app developers would put some more effort into making the media transfer as seamless as possible. For a $300-$400 camera that should not be too much to ask.
Irritating features
by MrsDrMom on 2021/05/15 16:17
Without paying $10-50 annually for the app, it seems you can import photos/videos exactly once (unless you delete and reinstall the app). Adding several photos/videos to an event on the mural can sometimes cause the app to randomly decide that something in the data is a duplicate (when it isn’t), and the app therefore fails to migrate those file sets to the mural. When the import function failed directly from the photo cache, it took an hour for the tech support to finally suggest opening a single image in the mural as an alternative to add more photos/videos (only succeeding while in the editing feature). If you edit something, you have to avoid using “premium features” (or you have to guess what they are and remove them) before you can save the video. Once you finally save your edit, you can send that video back to your camera roll. To avoid duplicate memory issues with the app, it should have an option to delete photos/videos from the photo cache (but it doesn’t)... so to clear the queue the community solution that makes the most sense is to delete the app. Seriously irritating logistics aside... technically you can edit photos into a slideshow. But every time a task is finished, expect to delete and reinstall the app again. Two stars is the equivalent of a grade D for the design.
Go pro could do so much better
by Jerry jeep on 2019/09/22 02:02
Love the H7 hate this app, ok so the media pulled from the GoPro saves to its sand boxed library and you have to then export it again from there to your local files, older version did not act this way. Gets very disorganized because it does not tell you that you sent it over you just get one in the app and now one in the photos section. A little search shows it “does not double your data” but uses some kind of image shortcut hack, doubtful! You can export the same pic/vid many times and it just adds more complexity duplicating itself. No way to tell that it’s on your device so you have to look in two different locations for the same media, and you can make many copy’s that will just be scattered around in random creation order on the iPhone photos side, huge fail from a marketing idea which keeps you trapped using there branding style editing software which is terrible, if it was good enough to work well it wouldn’t be such a big deal and would welcome the sandboxed media, but I have to burn it through there firewall to unlock it and basically after I sort out my few projects on this iPhone I’m just going strait to the pc from here forward! Please don’t make this harder than it should be GoPro! Can’t even share albums inside your app, don’t try to limit us in your corner we know the grass is greener on the other side...
Great features in theory, but glitchy and almost unusable
by saleen8927 on 2019/11/15 00:24
GoPro (and the app) have some great features, and the video quality of their cameras makes gopro one of the best choices out there (although I understand others are quickly catching up). The app isn’t all that user-friendly, but I can live with that. The problem is that the connectivity between app and camera is terrible. I tried two different cameras and two different phones with the same results. It connects successfully maybe 25% of the time. Closing out of the app and restarting is usually fixes the problem (not always), but it’s very frustrating to never know if it will work or not. If you’re hoping to be able to start the camera remotely to quickly catch action, don’t count on it. It also constantly loses connectivity randomly, so don’t expect to rely on it for a live view experience. The auto upload feature is a great idea, where it automatically uploads your clips to the cloud when it connects to your home WiFi (or whatever WiFi you set), but in practice it never does it automatically. Beyond that, their solution for organizing and editing video is subpar and definitely not meant for a pro or anyone who does more than upload a few vacation pics here and there. GoPro might have the name recognition, but that’s where it stops.
New app is poor with quik integration
by Reviewer245335 on 2019/08/02 22:35
Up until the recent update making videos was easy and flawless. But with the new quik integration it’s weak compared to the separate quick app. First the highlights is probably the worst part. You could previously slide the highlight marker to the exact frame now it’s guess and check I have to go back to the quik video to see if it even tagged the right spot then when it’s not right I have to go back in to edit mode. It’s back and forth on every clip and takes me 2-3 times longer to edit now. Old app tag the frame ... next clip ... done, already miss it. The music selection seems to be less than before as well. Why default to 4:3??? Does anyone even have a 4:3 display device these days. And why not default to original size?? Maybe I missed that on the old app but I can’t make a video in the new app with out either cutting off parts of the sides or top. I hope this is just the first try and the app will improve and that the peeps at GoPro even read these reviews. I just upgraded to the new 7 from a 5 and the new app is the only reason I regret spending the $$$. It was so much better in the old app.
Amazing app. Does everything
by Dwave27 on 2019/08/20 11:02
GoPro has finally made the ultimate app. This app lets me make Quikstories that look great very quickly and I’ve basically stopped bothering with using Final Cut Pro to edit because of the ease of use and how great the videos turn out. My only complaint would be that gopro please support 4k resolution output from the app! That’s the only downside. I rarely shoot 4k and take full advantage of my Hero Black 7 because I know the final QuickStory will only be 1080 anyways... I joined Gopro Plus and LOVE how the gopro automatically uploads everything and anything new to the cloud whenever I plug it in. First time I plugged it in I had 128gb and it successfully uploaded ALL of that content, although of course it took awhile. Now I don’t need to worry about deleting videos to save space, etc. it’s all in the cloud forever and easy to access.
I love GoPro, but...
by EinsteinCubes on 2020/12/14 13:13
This app has a lot of cool and useful features. Downloading the footage to my phone is great and the video quality looks amazing. The videos are fun to watch and easy to share with friends. However, their video editing software isn’t great. The actually editing one is good, but the part where you combine multiple videos and edit them together is severely lacking. I end up exporting to iMovie on my phone, which is easier but also compresses the videos so they aren’t as crisp. This was before the update. I liked the app quite a bit. However, after the update it crashes very often. This morning, I couldn’t open the app at all. The difference? I added some videos to the new mural feature. I didn’t think it would be that catostraphic. Secondly, my Hero 8 connects without a problem but the new 9 just doesn’t connect. I have to switch the sd cards and then upload the 9s video via the 8. But this app still is useful and it’s nice to relive cool moments. Minor details need to be changed and the app definitely should be more stable, but it’s not bad.
Interesting toy, not a professional tool
by Faux tog on 2019/07/29 03:40
I find the software for both the Camera (Hero5 Black) and the GoPro App to fall sadly short of their advertised capabilities. The camera software is tediously slow and disconnects from the app randomly. Pairing it with the app is time consuming at best (when it pairs) and frustrating when it won’t. This process could be greatly improved by removing the need for password when pairing (or at least make it optional) and getting rid of screen lock altogether or at least increasing the time before it locks itself. I find myself having to unlock screen three to four times when switching between photo and video settings and reviewing media. The net result is I spend FAR too much time fiddling with controls when I should be taking pictures. This is my fourth GoPro, and in fairness, each has been better than the last. The integral water proof case is awesome and the image quality is steadily improving. I give this three stars because the GoPro system has a lot of potential, but right now the camera controls and app don’t live up to the hype.
Sluggish performance and can’t upload to cloud
by Big Bo Brown on 2021/04/29 13:54
I never write reviews but had to for this. Spent well over $500 for the Hero 9, GoPro Subscription and accessories. This app functions like the camera does. Sluggish and disappointing. GoPro advertises using their app for easy download and upload of your videos from the cloud but somehow it doesn’t work like that. I can download from the cloud no problem when uploaded from the camera itself. I edit my videos and pictures only to be unable to upload from my app back to the cloud of the finished project. There’s no progress bar or anything to let you know the upload is actually functioning properly. Just a cloud showing a “arrow” letting you know it’s uploading? I’ve been trying to upload 1 video for 5 DAYS and no success. You can edit the videos on the app and it works like every other editing app around. It also offers a quick custom video editor that works well so far. Very disappointed with how slow and janky this app is. Constantly crashes and freezes when just trying to go into the settings. Very unimpressed with it.
The app is ok when it works...
by jrodmckis on 2020/05/25 18:54
I just don’t understand why I constantly have connectivity issues. And it takes forever to preview or upload a video. I use the app to upload off the camera and download to my phone I have over 25gb of available space on my phone and 1.5tb of iCloud but it still tells me there’s not enough available space for 1-2 gb videos. I bought an brand new iPad sitting here and cannot preview a video... tried 5x disconnecting the camera reconnecting closing the app again and still I can’t preview or even download a 7 min video on a brand new iPad with over 20gb of space. I even thought about using the GoPro cloud subscription to help with this problem, but if I cannot even download or preview a 7 minute video on the app I don’t think I will invest anymore into the GoPro products. Btw I am using a GoPro hero7 white camera that I wouldn’t recommend at all. My 7 min video is still “waiting”’the whole time I typed this review on my iPad sitting on my lap it hasn’t even started to download. Only reason for 2stars is that when the app works it is ok. Only ok...
If I could give 0 stars I would
by GP4958382029;82910 on 2019/05/26 23:19
The gopro itself is a decent camera but the way it interfaces with this app is enough to make me want to sell it. This app is the least intuitive piece of software I have ever used and coming from such a large company thats just sad. I usually spend about 5-10 minutes trying to connect the camera (the only camera i ever connect) and when i finally do the gopro times out and turns itself off, disconnecting. Meaning i have to press a button on the camera every 4-5 seconds just to keep it alive, and when you’re trying to download something to the app that will take 20 minutes, you could see why this is maddening. The camera can be turned on and sitting next to the phone and it still takes 9 tries to connect it. Sometimes i have to connect through wifi, sometimes bluetooth, sometimes straight through the app. And not being able to give my camera a personal name? Just make it so only i can see that name and it wouldnt affect gopro in any way. This app behaves like one that is wayyy in beta. And it’s been like that for years now. Fix this gopro.
Cellular data blowout
by It'sWhen? on 2020/12/27 19:23
Within minutes of installing the app for my first GoPro, my phone said it was full. Confused, since that’s never happened before, I deleted a bunch of stuff off my phone. But, it quickly filled up again. I eventually was able to clear enough phone data storage so the app could access the camera for a firmware update. I took a picture and a short video, then turned the camera off. Later while I slept, the app, apparently running in the background, blew through my cellular data so quickly that phone battery died even while on a charger. During this time, the app managed to go through an astonishing 60GB of cellular data - or roughly 6 months of family use - in one night. The overage charges are beyond frightening. To put it bluntly, I deleted the app. I have NEVER experienced anything like this in the digital era. There is clearly something wrong with the default app settings. No new user should have to experience such a disappointment and potential financial setback upon simply trying out a new app with a Christmas gift.
Big issue
by bjerding on 2018/08/20 17:53
So I used to use my Go Pro Hero 4 session on this app and it worked great. I tried to use it yesterday and also today and still am unable to connect my Go Pro to the application. I have “ “forgotten” the WiFi network from the Go Pro and then tried to connect again. That didn’t work. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Nothing has worked. I keep getting stuck on the screen that tells me that I need to go connect the WiFi in my phone settings. So I do that and make sure it’s connected. Go back to the Go Pro app and a pop up comes up saying, “Oops, that didn’t work. There was a problem; try reconnecting to your camera’s WiFi in your iPhone’s settings.” And I am given the options “Get Support” or “Got it!” I have tried both options. Can’t find any new support on it... I have already followed all of the steps listed. Multiple times. My iPhone is also up to date and I have an iPhone 8 Plus. I really hope this gets fixed soon or else I don’t know what to do with my Go Pro.
Spotty Connection
by Life with Steve on 2020/12/17 19:29
EDIT: GoPro developer responded with steps to change Wi-Fi bands from 5 GHz to 2.4 GHz. This didn’t help. Additionally, there’s a new “update” that’s supposed to solve this issue. Seeing that my GoPro doesn’t connect, I had to manually download the update (which is a whole ‘nother can of worms). After installing the update to my SD card and installing, I still can’t connect or preview what the camera is seeing. This is a total waste of an app and at this point, based on the issues with the app, and lackluster performance of the camera, I wish I’d bought the Insta 360 One R. I’ve had both my GoPro Hero 8 Black, & the GoPro app since May/June of 2020 and this app has consistently gotten worse. Initially I had issues with it connecting while I previewed certain shots but as soon as I would start recording, it would drop the connection and I’d have to start over. Now, it doesn’t even connect to my GoPro; it’ll power it in but won’t display what the GoPro is displaying, nor will it connect in order for me to view what’s on my SD card.
Great Mobile remote for Gopros!
by .ZamaK. on 2020/07/16 00:42
I love every little feature about this app especially the fact that you can view your cameras media and control it and see what the camera sees on your phone live! My one little peeve is that there is no “Are your sure” warning when your about to download footage from you camera to your phone you might accidentally tap trash instead of download when in a rush. It would be great if a message would pop up when you tap trash that’s says “ are you sure you want to delete these files?” It would be great if this was added just to make your footage a little safer so you don’t accidentally delete footage permanently when quickly trying to download it. Other that this the app is great and I use it all the time! Highly recommend using this app if you have a GoPro.
Not as efficient as it used to be
by KTSurfs on 2019/06/15 20:41
I used to use the GoPro App all the time when I lived in Hawaii to capture all my surf and snorkeling and hiking pics. It was amazing because I could do everything wirelessly with my phone and never have to plug into a computer. It used to be fast and all my pics and videos downloaded fast. Nowadays, I don’t use it as often, but definitely in the last year I noticed that App has really downgraded in quality and efficiency when I’m downloading my pictures from my GoPro. My pictures do not all load. I can never see all of them and if they do appear in view, it’s blurry. I updated my GoPro with the latest firmware. My app is updated. Batteries on both devices are charged or plugged in. I don’t understand why the app pic download is so terrible now. I don’t understand why it has to use cellular data. I should be able to stay on my WiFi connection and still connect to my GoPro to get my picture and keep the speed of WiFi without having to use data. I connect to my Google Home and Chromecast with my phone and stay on my WiFi.
Poorly designed, flaky, frustrating
by Xyzzy999 on 2019/06/27 01:33
The app has tons of problems and irritations. For example, I’ve spent the hour annoyed with: - Connectivity problems. Connecting to the camera sort-of works over WiFi, but this forces a disconnection from WiFi with Internet. (Despite much fiddling, Bluetooth seems to not work for transferring images.) - The app is designed to download pictures into **GoPro’s** cloud service, but I don’t want to manage + pay for yet another cloud service. I want my pictures with my other iPhone/iPad photos... but putting them there seems to only be possible one photo at a time, using many taps, via the “share” interface. Ugh. - The app randomly switches the iPad into portrait mode, making it painful on an iPad with a keyboard connected. - Images display initially as a very low resolution thumbnail, then after a *long* delay a better version appears, making it a really tedious process to figure out which images are good vs. blurry. The high quality images don’t seem to be pre-fetched or cached.
Very confusing
by mkl323 on 2018/06/21 04:18
All I wanted to do was make a cool movie out of some short GoPro clips from vacation . There are barely any instructions at all. I’ve been messing with this for hours and still can’t figure it out . I can’t understand a few things. If I take a 2 min video and go back to watch it in the app and then out of that 2 mins I cut a clip out that’s 15 secs long why does that clip not save to the app so I can delete the 2 minute one. What’s the point of having the ability to cut and highlight clips and where do they save ??? It makes no sense to me that if I take a long video and go back to watch it and decide that I only want a minute of it that it doesn’t save anywhere . Then I tried quick and I can’t get my GoPro videos go transfer over . When I go into it and scroll down to GoPro it’s only showing 2 videos . I bought the GoPro so I could take cool clips when I’m away or fishing and make a movie out of them. Sorry , but if the 1 video that did transfer over Quik took like 10 seconds of it and made a movie if you can call it that. So far , it’s really aggravating.
Disappointed Gopro App for Gopro Max 360
by Igorlopeslimamarinho on 2020/07/03 05:17
I bought a Gopro Max 360 this week July 1, 2020 because I found the way to shoot 360 degrees very cool, but I am very disappointed with the limitation of the mobile application, I can't even make a slow motion or increase the speed of a selected part of my video, a simple task that any video editor does. Inside the app there is a type of Gopro Studio that makes short videos that is ridiculous to limit the time of the video with just over 40 seconds of maximum duration, that is, I would presume to cut my videos in several parts to be able to make a single video if my video is longer. Editing a song and choosing the selected part I want to cut is a joke. I will soon test the Gopro application on a Computer, but I already think that it will be very limited too. I have always heard of Gopro and never bought one, when it comes to capturing images I believe you are the best but I thought you were already very evolved in the issue of editing these images in your apps and honestly I did not expect this unpleasant surprise .
In critical need of bug fixes
by JaysonB. on 2018/10/02 15:58
The only reason this review isn’t getting one star is because if it was to function correctly I would have no complaints, I really love the user interface and what it is trying to achieve. However, ever since I got my GoPro Hero4 Black and downloaded this onto my phone, The app has progressively been getting worse. It’s gotten to the point where I take pictures but can’t see my pics once I go to my library. In order to see my pics, I’m forced to download all pictures individually onto my phone which takes up even more phone storage. A lot of times the app will cease to function, And I have to restart everything all over (Turn off Wi-Fi, restart Camera, force close the app). I ask that you fix this ASAP because it really takes away from the joy of using my GoPro and since I rely on the app as my viewfinder, and prefer taking pictures over video, this problem is just unfair and unacceptable to me as a customer. Please fix! Will rate higher once you do.
Missing features for fusion
by Mickie MANG on 2018/03/24 18:13
I bought the fusion on 3/12 and have been loving it. I hated how long it took to render videos on my computer then found out I could do them on my phone or iPad. It’s been way easier and faster using the app. After using it I realized it’s missing 2 key features that’s needed for the app and another one that would be nice to have. 1: joystick for editing. When I edit with my fingers by sliding the video it causes 2 huge issues. Knocks the video off it’s level, then I have to twist it back, and panning isn’t smooth. Using my phones accelerometer isn’t always ideal. Sometimes I can’t stand or spin to get the whole 360 degrees of video. If I want to edit on a plane or on the train, or anywhere in public, I can’t. 2: Add a panning feature for photos. Having a 360 camera is great, and there are times I want to show the whole 360 pic without making a tiny planet. In order for me to do this, I have to open the image, press screen recording, go back to the app, and spin in a circle. Once again a joystick would be nice since the pan is wobbly. 3: Split pic for selfies. There are cameras on both sides of the fusion, this allows me to catch both the action and my reaction. It would be nice if there was a way to export 2 views in 1 pic/video without having to create 2 exports and putting them together using another app.
Pro Videographer Review
by Mercury is my last name on 2019/05/05 18:09
As a professional videographer I highly recommend the go Pro hero seven along with the go Pro app and Quik video maker. For every day social media posting this is the absolute easiest, fastest and most professional looking video on the market. Especially the hero seven hyper stabilization!! I would not recommend shooting much video at night as your video can get pretty grainy but any daytime shooting or sunset shooting or shooting that would not allow for a big rig this is the way to go hands down. Big props to go pro for creating such amazing user-friendly applications to go along with the amazing Hero 7 Black. I have never written a review on any app but after using this one I had to say something. Next will be music videos I make using the app. It can’t be done!
Really wish the attachments such as the speedometer was like it was in early 2019
by Seth15c on 2020/03/30 02:53
I love the camera and loved this app. It is amazing being able to throw the stickers for speedometer and maps right into your videos. I will say however I am kicking my self for updating the app in 2020. The features are less than what I had on the 2019 app. Plus the speedometer looks lame and childish now. Before it looked like a race car speedometer and you could see the degrees on the compass. I’m disappointed with the update. Also, I use to be able to size them all to the size I wanted. Now the g-force is huge and in the way. Even if I double tap to move it. GoPro if you could go back to allowing us to size the stickers and move them wherever the user decides like you did on the 2019 app I’d give you five stars and be much appreciative. Thanks for a great camera. But please how can I get the old stickers?
Camera download is broken
by fxstein on 2021/06/09 06:05
This app is beyond annoying for a product that relies on it. Multiple H9s that need to be downloaded to iOS. Stuck with this app that freezes, is beyond slow, eats mobile data like crazy (like 50 GB in a matter of 3 days of using it - without intending to use mobile data at all). Turns out you need to use really stupid work arounds like putting the phone in airplane mode when you want to download images or videos from a Hero 9. When the app crashes - like it does daily, the Skip button on downloads is always grayed out - so you have to download everything again and hope the app wont crash again. All of that on the latest iPhone (12 Pro Max), iOS, lates App release, latest H9 firmware. When you sell a product like the Hero 9 it needs to work out of the box. These issues are so widespread according to the forums, its clear that the software quality is lacking severely. Why do I need to work with support to make the basic functionality of a premium product work?
System crashes
by VSanz80 on 2018/07/31 16:34
I like the image of the camera but when taking photos it takes a lot to save the images. Also for some reason very often the camera frozen not letting me press on any commands. I have to turn it off and restart it to be able to preview the video. When loading the videos for preview it takes a long time and if I want to replay a video it frozen again. When I’m using the app with my iPhone sometimes won’t let me start recording saying the camera is in use. Regarding the battery life is better to have an extra battery. In my case (since photos take forever to save) I prefer recording a video but battery doesn’t last long. 2 to 4 hours turning off the camera in between videos to save battery life (it’s a pain). I do like the under water images the body of the camera and the options in resolution with the image stabilization.
This is so much worse than the original Quik app
by jarnomansfield on 2021/05/07 20:28
This app is infuriating, I was a dedicated user of the old Quik app and though I wasn’t thrilled to find out that it’s now been changed to be subscriber supported for what used to be completely free, I understand that if I want it to improve than I’ll happily pay the cost…..HOWEVER, it won’t even apply the subscription, I can’t import from my phone, it just displays the splash screen to subscribe, restoring purchase does nothing signing in does nothing registering your GoPro camera does nothing to actually unlock the app to just simply allow you to import and edit videos saved to the device. I’m really disappointed GoPro I’m pulling for you, I love your cameras but how dare you force me to use this new app take away functionality and put me in a Infinity loop of bugs after I’ve given you the money for the subscription, I’ve already lost one edit that took me an hour to make….. FIX THIS IMMEDIATELY.
GoPro isn’t there yet. Sad.
by Derivative97 on 2019/07/09 12:52
First, the Hero 7 Black takes beautiful action videos in daylight. However, The overall experience is clunky with the camera itself, the mobile app and the desktop version. It’s actually quite disappointing. Do I really need a master’s degree in computer science to shoot videos and edit them? Okay, that’s a bit of hyperbole but you get the point. I have top-end gear and I expected the GoPro experience to be seamless. Shoot videos, no weird settings/defaults, just point and shoot like an iPhone and have the basic magic happen. Plug it into my computer and use the app to import and edit the videos. Simple request. Instead, the desktop app imports only SOME files (using the approved high-end SD card), their desktop app can’t play it’s own videos (when VLC does — it’s a $3,000 laptop so it should on GoPro’s app too). Time lapse imports every frame as a separate file on the desktop app and plays them with massive stutter in the newest mobile app (iPhone XS max). Default settings on my laptop/phone. In addition, the extra functions on the GoPro camera itself are clunky — having to hit buttons twice, accidentally hitting buttons and having the thing go to hell, having the camera off and having it turn on if I accidentally hit the record button. The entire vision of what the GoPro and software does and how the camera/workflow integration is done needs to be revisited from the ground up. Period. Period.
New update is awesome.
by { ~bacon~ } on 2021/04/05 22:04
The GoPro app now the Quik app has always had a love hate relationship with me. I loved a lot of the features (especially the unlimited cloud with the GoPro subscription) but the one thing that always agitated me was the lack of speed ramping. This feature alone was the key reason I did not use the Quik app for editing and preferred premiere. With this new update it makes it so much easier to edit. As a college student who often lacks the time to shoot something let alone edit it, I was frustrated with the long process of premiere. Once this feature came out along with better filters, I find myself Turing to Quik over premiere simply because how simple and effortless everything is on this app. GoPro you’re killing it!
Consistently poor experience, been waiting for a stable running app for YEARS.
by Liamo71 on 2021/04/12 03:28
I can’t believe how much time and effort I’ve wasted trying to transfer files from the GoPro app (now Quik) to my iPhone XS, so I can edit with iMovie ... it is infuriating and inconsistent, and no amount of clipping/ trimming the video files, and no amount of phone restarts does anything ... and I’m sitting on ~75gb available for storage, so it’s not like I’ve got a capacity issue. GoPro, this has been going on for years. Perhaps I should give up (after 4 different gopros and accessories I e bought over the years), and move to Insta360, or anyone else that can develop a basic app. I mean, when the GoPro costs half as much as an iPhone, I may as well just invest in iPhone mounts and just record video with it directly since the GoPro app is so bad. The app gets 1 star because I do appreciate being able to double check my camera angle with my phone before hitting record and walking away, otherwise it would be getting zero.
UPDATE: NO STARS FOR THIS TIDDLYWINK APP
by Shonamutt on 2019/05/25 12:44
All I want to do is save a clip from a video to my camera roll. Been trying for over an hour. Very poor instructions (still looking for them). When I’m fishing I run video then snip the clips I want. Very hard on iPhone. UPDATE: Here is GoPro response to my review: How to do it To grab a still frame from a video follow these simple steps here below: Tap the Media Library icon in the bottom right hand corner of the app Select the video you want Click on the Photo Icon next to the Scissors icon on the bottom of the app Scrub through frame-by-frame to the image that you'd like to share Select "Next" in the upper right hand corner Select where you'd like to share it to, and you're all set! Totally off topic. I already figured this out. GoPro please reread the original review. I want an easy way to SAVE MY STUFF (COMPLETE AND WHOLE FULL RES VIDEO AND PICS) TO THE CAMERA ROLL ON THE IPHONE OR IPAD. DOWN GRADE THE REVIEW TO: Zero stars App is designed for children who need to be told what to do and how to do it not for people who are capable of thinking for themselves or — heaven forbid — actually know what they want to do. I like my camera but the App is crap. I want more cameras but won’t buy GoPros if the app is not fixed soon. All I want is to easily save the full image and video with all metadata to camera roll. Should be simple many other apps can do this. Just a simple download and save that’s it and that’s all I need.
Love the Camera, Disappointed in this App
by Super SARS on 2018/12/13 17:48
I am a long time GoPro user and have had multiple camera’s over the years. And to be fair, I have always been happy about my purchases. But that was until I got my hero 5 black and started trying to use it on the app. Here’s why: I film videos on my GoPro using the GPS feature so I can track my speed or location while recording. It is a great feature. Unfortunately, you are only able to retrieve this data if you download to the GoPro app. I would have no problem with this if it actually worked. But every time I plug my Quik Key into my iPad or other iOS device, it ends up not previewing the files, being unable to download them and the app ends up crashing and closing. My app is up so date, my Quik Key is the newer one, my camera is updated and the SD card is formatted properly. And these aren’t even long videos! If I can, I am able to import to the a directly from the camera. Unfortunately, this kills the camera battery and takes so long. Overall, -The app always crashes -It isn’t comparable with the GoPro Quik Key -It is really slow You would think the app designed for an “ACTION CAMERA” would be better at actually doing the ACTIONS it is designed to do. This review saddened me to write because I love this camera. But GoPro, this is a fail and a big one. Even your own accessories don’t work with your own app. One Star rating until see improvements
Slow and frustrating

The editing on your phone is great. Try to do anything else and expect to be frustrated for 24 hours. Uploading footage to the cloud is slow. Downloading footage to the app is slow. And deleting stuff on my phone so there is space is slow. It’s really frustrating that the cloud isn’t better. Especially since I pay $5 a month for it. I wish I didn’t have to download footage to my phone in order to edit it. I want to be able to do that directly from the cloud. But that’s not an option so again, expect to be frustrated and for it to take 24 hours. I have to set up my GoPro overnight plugged in so it can fully upload my daily videos to the cloud. And even when I wake up sometimes and check it, it errors out and I only get maybe 5/20 videos I was trying to upload. It needs to be better than this.
Gopro app
by SoaR Gabe10 on 2019/11/30 04:11
First off I own the GoPro hero 7 silver. It is an exceptional camera but it doesn’t really matter too much because I do not use it very much other than trips and vacations. I do not necessarily think My camera quality is what it looks like in the GoPro hero 7 silver trailer/ GoPro videos. However the app is not good at all. It makes me connect to the GoPro WiFi which disconnects me to whatever WiFi I am using. It would be much easier if instead if WiFi, it was only bluetooth. I assume I am doing the process correctly but when I enter the GoPro app on my GoPros WiFi, when I connect to the camera, and look at the media on my phone, the media takes a while to load and a lot of time closing out the app. I decided to write this review because this has happened to me every time I load the media, and is even happening to me right now as I try to look at the footage from my recent trip.
Mixed feelings
by Disappointed email user on 2021/04/19 14:01
I don’t love that they keep renaming and restyling the app icon. I’ve used my GoPro and the app for several years and from time to time it has a name I’ve never heard of and a different appearance, but it remains “the GoPro app” no matter what they call it. Their marketing is an inconvenience for users. I also don’t love having to sign into an app with a password to use my camera. The camera is locked to my phone. I secure my phone (with Apple’s help). I don’t enjoy an extra layer of complication to control my camera with the app. And that is what I need this app for—remote control of my camera. I don’t need “the GoPro app” to be Facebook. I don’t need it to be a video editor tbh. This video I take is not usefully edited on a phone. The constantly changing names and appearance and requirement of a password is counter to my purpose for taking video with my camera.
Used to be a one star for me but NOW!!

Before I knew how to properly use this app I was so frustrated with it. I didn’t think you could edit in the app at all except cut clips, BUT OH WAS I WRONG! All I had to do was download video/picture into my media and VOILA editing features as far as the eye could see! Sorry for making a bunk review when I just was uneducated about the way the app worked! Love my GoPro! it’s come v handy with us building our tiny home development. fueled our instagram/YouTube pages with the videos of how blissful -and irritating- it is to build your home from ground up. Looking forward to many more tiny home builds, designs, workshops, laughs, tears, and for sure puppy snuggle videos the go pro will capture!
Crashing updates as usual
by rlittke on 2019/09/30 03:34
I've owned several gopros and as usual, the apps and updates are always crashing, the cameras rarely work without crashing. Keeping them paired is always a problem. Updates fail windowless, fail to install properly and using a computer is no better. Update : bought the new GoPro 7 and once again truly disappointed. I would have known better. First time underwater with the new water proof housing tested it before I went down turned it on took a 7 second clip and turned it off. Went for my dive, and saw a couple of sharks at 60 ft. Went to turn on the GoPro, nothing, dead, tried several times. Got to the surface and pulled the Camara out, dry, tried to turn it on, nothing,dead, pulled the battery out,put it back in and it turns on and works fine. Hey Go Pro,want to tell me how I'm suppose to do that 60ft under water? Maybe you should work on that!? Wasted money once again.
GOPRO FIX THIS; Videos won’t download
by The Man5 1/2 on 2018/09/17 05:36
When I go to download the videos I recorded onto my phone using the app, it takes forever to download specific videos, and then when it gets to the end of the download, it says “converting your files to your quik story” and it sits there for a long time... one time I tried letting it sit for an hour and a half... it gets stuck. So I quit the download and open the app back up, and most of the videos I tried to download are not on the app. So I try to download them again, but when I pull down it goes straight to the “converting your files to your quik story” again. It won’t stop.. again, so I quit the app... again... the only way to get this to fix and download videos again, is if I delete the videos that never got downloaded. So my great shots I took have to be completely removed and never gotten to be seen because the APP WON’T WORK. This needs to be fixed.
May have damaged my SD card
by @lucia99 on 2020/01/08 06:52
I’ve been using this app for about a year since I got my Hero 7 Black. The camera itself has been glitchy and very disappointing but I had no issues with the app itself until recently. I was attempting to upload videos from snorkeling in Hawaii (I was very excited about the content) and the app immediately crashed. When I tried to open it again it said that I had no SD card. That was strange considering I had not removed the SD card yet. When I looked at my go pro and tried to view the media it said that there was a card error and all I could do was delete everything on it. Good bye cute turtle videos, so far GoPro has been nothing but a disappointment. Other than that however the app has worked pretty well, the videos I’ve downloaded in the past were smooth and quick to save.
Really good - not great (yet)
by RaptorSloth on 2021/04/25 15:52
Overall it’s a good app - still has some crashing issues - on iPad the app forces you to alternate from landscape to portrait mode, no setting I can see to stay in one mode. Could use some more video editing development - for example when editing/keyframing I’ve had several crashes and all the work I’ve done is erased - active saving is desperately needed for long video edits - there is a “save draft” option but since the app still suffers crashes, active draft saving would be much better. Also ATM when keyframing 360 videos you cannot alternate between orientation lock to unlock between consecutive key frames. You’ll have to create two separate videos one locked then another unlocked and splice those together after rendering.
Hilight tags are broken
by Diputswab on 2019/05/04 06:31
U can’t delete tags without using the desktop app. The tags usually miss the most exciting part and play the really lame stuff, and since you can’t edit this, it screws Quik up. Transfer speed is slow, which I found out the hard way is necessary because the desktop app often corrupts/deletes videos from the Hero when transferring (it’s a common problem, despite what card you use the software glitches and your videos disappear). the only way to avoid losing footage is to lethargically WiFi transfer each file to phone for backup unless you want to end up looking at a bunch of .LRV files in your DCIM folder. An avid user of both Gopro and Garmin action products, I can safely say that even though Garmin has flaws and isn’t as popular, they at least provide a complete hardware-software integration. Gopro software is always buggy and it feels like they give you the middle finger whenever commit to using it. I only keep this app for composing my shot and reviewing footage, but after 6 years of poor quality I’ve learned it’s better to just use the Remote and LCD bacpac + Extendercable instead of dealing with these shoddy apps. Remember, you paid for the camera, not the software which is all that matters to GoPro. NEVER trust GoPro to transfer files. Always back up to a separate storage device before you ever consider opening this app.
Needs to be clearer about what features require a subscription
by Lostinperiphery on 2021/03/23 20:22
I spent about an hour cutting and editing a handful of footage together to match the music I selected from within the GoPro Quik app. However, when I went to save the video, it would simply open a “subscribe to save” window, preventing me from saving the working file or the export unless I purchased a subscription. After spending some time with support, we finally determined that my choice of music was apparently a premium feature, even though it was not marked as such, nor did the app ever indicate that my music choice would require a subscription. Changing the music would have apparently allowed me to save, but then I would have lost all my carefully timed cuts :/ As it is, the app seems to be more sluggish and with more limitations than before the rebranding to “Quik”
Login Required - Insane Decision
by mancuj1 on 2017/09/04 10:31
Seriously, have you lost your mind requiring users to log in to use this app? I have been waiting a year to get this issue resolved and still no progress. I am going on an trip for 2 months and will not have international cell coverage while abroad. In addition, I am a pilot who uses your product during flight (where there is NO cell coverage). How do you expect your users to run this app with the asinine requirement of having to log in every time? A large percentage of your user base is remote & disconnected while using your products? Do you understand your user base at all? Maybe do some focus group testing PRIOR to modifying a functional working app just so that you can collect user data (which is none of your business to begin with). On a positive note, GoPro will have user data available to sell and market with - WHAT A RIDICULOUS, SELF SERVING, BRAINLESS & SHORT SIGHTED MOVE!!!! Fix this app by removing the login requirement!
Great camera! Ultra lame app
by alonzozilch on 2020/10/18 15:18
Why ? You think with GoPros revenue they could have a better interface for uploading videos and pics. This app makes me feel like I am back in the days of Windows 95. I have a Mac book pro and iPhone 11 and it’s still a hassle. I’ve been trying for a day to get it to upload my stuff to the GoPro plus cloud and no go!!!! Super frustrating. Makes me not want to use the camera anymore and just deal with my iPhone11 for action vids. Do better GOPro. Might have to rebrand yourself GoPoor. Besides the awesome quick customer service they have it has been a windows 95 flashback nightmare to get my vids to the GoPro plus cloud. After my customer service that was pleasant I still can’t get it to upload my stuff to the GoPro plus cloud. Seriously GoPro you have millions at your disposal and it’s 2020 DO BETTER !!!! Invest in app developers instead of buying good reviews. Most frustrating tech thing I’ve been through in years.
First time
by Dndjfnfjf on 2020/06/14 21:52
Just got my new GoPro and edited my first video. The App crashed a lot in the beginning. I learned I need to save often or it overloads the phone rams with all the sweet 4K footage. Some features were not available such as; I can add text to videos but it only appears in the beginning of that clip. I can create a highlight (short clip) but I can’t choose how long or short it can be. If I choose auto highlight and one part of the clip I don’t like because I was filming the ground I can’t just tell the app not to use the one specific highlight I have to manually do it even though I liked how the auto did it. Why!!! This could be a great app if it had just a few more features such as these. As a rookie user to editing I feel like I picked up IMovie way faster then this app initially. This was used with an IPhone 10.
Very impressed. Super easy to use!
by Me22. on 2019/10/24 06:41
Just got the Hero 8 (upgraded from a hero 4 black). The app (on an iPhone XR) is very fast and easy to use. It’s actually easier to view, watch, and even fast forward through videos on the app vs. using my MacBook Pro. In the past the app has been slow and had bugs. But now it easily connects to my GoPro hero 8 and I can pretty much instantly scroll through all of the videos and dragging the bar at the bottom to scroll through is very smooth as well. I trimmed the video, added gauges to it, then airdropped it to my computer from my phone and it looks very crisp (I assume the image quality remained in 4K) Well done GoPro, this is a huge step up from the past!
Falls way short for livestream
by iMamma on 2019/03/31 21:38
I wanted so badly to love the updates. I have used it without too much trouble for my Hero 5 black for years. I saw the updates for the live-streaming with Hero 7 black and took the bait. Sadly my first go was a complete failure. I did some testing at home and everything recognized and worked. Get to the game and it won’t recognize the WiFi or my hotspot for the livestream. So I ditch the livestream and just record and still had connection problems. I missed the first 3.5 innings before I realized it wasn’t recording at all even though I thought I was stopping the recordings and restarting it between innings. I’m giving 3 stars as it is likely the Hero 7 that is the issue but it all should work together it’s a package deal!😢 I am returning the Hero 7 and looking at other recording/livestream options.
Login requirement doesn't make sense for this app
by DoesEveryoneHaveToHave_a_Nick on 2017/10/11 23:04
Update October 2017: Don’t be fooled, this app only has high ratings because GoPro used new Apple store policy to let app developers wipe out old ratings, without giving users the ability to see ratings for previous versions! Nothing has changed! This useless app will still require you to sign in. You will not even notice until you are in a foreign country or in the middle of the ocean. It will conveniently log you out for unknown reasons and you won’t be able to log back in. Shame on GoPro and Apple. The end for GoPro is near... How many one-star reviews does it take for you to realize that we, the users (and potential buyers of your future products) do not want to login to your cloud just to be able to control OUR cameras. I might be in the middle of the ocean when I'm trying to use it. Or I might miss an important moment while trying to login. Just drop it, no one wants it!
Worthless feature
by Dan2737485839 on 2019/08/29 22:00
It would be nice if the app recognized that it was connected to my camera and didn’t bring up the ‘connect your camera’ screen while at the same time the app says ‘camera connected’. This locks the user out from actually using the app to control the camera and download media. In this instance it was working for a few minutes, as I was playing with different settings for a particular lighting condition, and all of a sudden it goes into this ‘connect your camera’ feedback loop when the camera WiFi is on, my phone is for sure connected to it, and the app itself says ‘camera connected’ on the screen where I pick between my different cameras. WiFi has never been GoPros forte, I have an older camera that none of the support staff can find a solution to resetting the password, so WiFi is not at all usable on that device. Incompetence makes it a worthless feature.
