Qik for iPhone Enables Video Chat Beween iPhone and Androids
Skype and Qik today announced the new Qik Video Connect chatting application for the Apple iPhone. Qik Video Connect for iPhone builds on what Qik offers to the Android platform and offers a wide range of features. The application can be used to conduct live two-way video chats between Qik phones (including between Android and iPhone) over 3G or Wi-Fi. It also allows users to stream video live to their online Qik channel, where videos can also be stored and/or retrieved by users. The application can also take all the native videos on the iPhone and upload them to Qik and vice versa. There are two versions of Qik for iPhone. The free version offers the features mentioned above, and the Premium version, which costs $2.99, adds HD quality video, video editing, and real-time video effects. The Premium application should become available starting later today from the iPhone App Store. The free version has yet to be approved by Apple, but should become available later this week.
