OH BUT THERE’S ONE MORE THING! (Honestly, they admitted they’ve spent 14 years trying to perfect this! How will they possibly top this?)
The Quik Key
The Quik Key can transfer footage from your GoPro straight to your phone. In the app (Quik App) you can easily edit your images and videos, Woodman even demonstrated how he edited the footage of his kids learning how to ride bikes without stabilizers (Couldn’t make this up)! In the app, exists clever features such as ‘Instagram’ which will produce your videos in the format and length allowed for Instagram. So useful!
