User Reviews for GoPro Quik: Video Editor

Sluggish performance and can’t upload to cloud

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.

I love GoPro, but...

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

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.

Ez to use - but lots of limitations

Honestly this tool set is cool for what it is, but there’s so many limitations. The unlimited cloud space I think is a lie, due to the extreme throttling that I have experienced, I have fiber at my house with upload speeds close to 10 gigs, and leaving my phone plugged in overnight not one video will upload to the cloud. I guess it’s unlimited, but good luck getting it to their servers. For some reason this app takes up so much space on your phone, I have three videos using the tool and it was logging close to 15 gigs, it was frustrating at first because I didn’t understand how I had so little space to take more videos. Finally my last complaint is that quick has a limitation of how long their video format can be, I think it’s to under two minutes and 30 seconds, I do understand that they want quick TickTock, Instagram like videos, but to pay money for an app that controls how long I want to make my videos shouldn’t be up to the manufacture of the tool, in my opinion. The tool is stupid easy to use, and I think the transitions do make a quality product, but all the reasons that I listed above has forced me to cancel my subscription. I am also frustrated that there is not an online portal to view your uploads, you can only view through your phone app, which makes me believe that the unlimited call cloud offering is more of a bait and switch than anything.

Not User Friendly, in a few ways.

Unfortunately this review is critical of the very existence of this app. I don’t think it’s really necessary. And especially the membership that literally costs almost as much as my entire internet bill. They definitely use your info against you since I DO NOT even use the app or ANY of the “services” in any way shape or form, but STILL after 1 year they charged me and ran my bank account negative. Now I’ve had to pay an extra fee on top of the overcharging for the year of “services” that I really have never and will never use... I’m stressed out because I’m moving in less than a month and they just robbed me for just over $70. I need every penny… I cannot afford to mess around right now. And after reluctantly sharing my info about my situation with the customer service they STILL kept my money and refused to give me a refund. Terrible customer service. Difficult editing software that’s not easy to use. I’m absolutely disgusted that they couldn’t help me. Especially since I don’t use or HAVEN'T USED any of those services the entire year. They should give a pass to those who thought they unsubscribed. Shame on you GoPro. I see your scheme. I would gladly send my camera in for an entire full refund if I could! This is sad. To say the least.

Working Good for a Beginner!

So I have been doing photography for a long time. Was in a darkroom in high school in 1975. I never got much into digital photography editing although I’ve always had a camera. My son and his fiancé are getting ready to take scuba diving lessons so I bought a GoPro for him to be able to use diving. Yeah, I’m going to have to get him another one! I just had to open it up and play with it, and now I’m hooked on this little thing! I’m too old to record “action” videos as those days are over for me. The one thing that was always so hard to do with most DSLR or even mirrorless cameras was Timelapse videos but the GoPro 8 makes it fun and easy. The time warp videos are amazing as well and just taking the dog for a walk is so cool using time warp. The interface between the GoPro and my iPhone is seamless and even though the editing is fairly basic it is just about right for me. While the GoPro is marketed as an “adventure” camera it is really a fun little creative device you can put in your pocket and have a lot of fun with. I’m really glad I got one!

Updated Bricked my brand new GoPro. Offshore customer svc made it worse.

I bought a brand new GoPro six months ago. One of their updates caused my camera to no longer pair. I contacted customer service who said they will replace the camera with a new one due to the defect. I sent them my brand new one (about 2 months ago). They sent me back a dinged up camera! I contacted them again about the mistake. They apologized for the mixup and said it wouldn’t happen again. Of course when you ask how, they just repeat “rest assured, I’ve taken care of it”. Another month of shipping the old one and waiting for the new one goes by and they send an even worse and older camera! I’ve asked them to have a US based customer service manager to contact me and the best they can do is provide an address that I can google myself. At this point, I can’t get help and need to contact BBB and the FTC. And come to think of it, I had a GoPro Hero 4 (purchased in 2014) that worked fine in 2021 until an update that completely bricked the camera. No more GoPro’s for me. Their BBB rating is a D-. If you buy one, just be ready to screwed by the company. If any US based corporate employee is reading this, I still would like to be contacted because the offshore team is completely useless.

Go pro could do so much better

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...

The app is ok when it works...

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 a7 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...

7 Yrs

I’ve used this app for almost years I think? 6 or 7. One of the main reasons was the pre approved music so to speak to use on Facebook and the simplicity in using it to create videos using photos and videos. The app was easy to move through not overly complicated. Perfect for a phone app. The music was ok but really fit the needs of the short videos. The Last couple years it’s gotten so cluttered and so much more complicated. Navigating it is a cluster phuc. It’s stupid weird that my pre done slow mo video doesn’t work when uploaded to the app. I even tried to trim a video recently and I feel like I have to go watch you tube video on how to use this app now. To me it’s not nearly as user friendly as it was. I’m sad, because I loved it so much and angry, because I’ll have to start over in my search to find a new one. It’s great to update apps, add new tools and they grow, and I’m on board however, this is visually hard to navigate and the new tools seem more complicated then they actually need to be. It’s the same tools but 5 more steps to get what you want when you could have gotten that same effect with the original way.
