GoPro to Launch Mobile App for Editing Content on the Go This Summer
Earlier this month, GoPro unveiled its brand new waterproof ‘Hero4 Session’ action camera, which is being dubbed as the “future of GoPro” by analysts. Today, GoPro president Tony Bates has made it public that the company is on the verge of releasing a brand new mobile app for editing video content on the go. He added that the app is in the final phase of testing and he expects it to launch by the end of the summer (via TechCrunch).
Bates briefly mentioned that the company is pursuing a cloud-based product that will allow owners to view, but currently not edit, footage captured on a GoPro camera on other devices. Last month GoPro CEO and founder Nick Woodman explained that the company would ultimately like this cloud service to create a highlight reel for the content owner.
Currently, GoPro users need to use various video editing softwares on their computers to turn hours of captured video footage into a minute or two highlight reel, which can be a tiring process at times. Moving editing from the desktop to mobile will allow GoPro users to share content much faster and without much hassle.
Meanwhile, GoPro has also announced its second quarter financial earnings today, which include a 72% increase in revenue to $420 million.
