The amazing application Qik has made its way to the Android platform and not a moment too soon. About a month ago it released as an alpha version lacking many features and still buggy but it managed to climb into the featured list in the Android Market regardless.
Qik is the first live video streaming application to find its way to Android but there is no doubt that others will eventually follow. Only 33 other applications have managed to make it into the featured list in Android Market so this really speaks volumes. In order to celebrate this milestone Qik has released and update that, as usual fixed bugs but this one includes a few added features that we have been waiting to see.
The first of the features is on-phone editing that allows you to edit video before sending it in to prevent any unwanted portions. Also added is speed sharing which allows you to immediately notify people via email, phone, Facebook or twitter that you are streaming live.
It is surprising that Android got these great features and not the iPhone which has had this application for many months now. If you haven’t already, go and try out Qik right away, you will not be disappointed. This is one of my most used applications.
