Qik has launched the latest version of its video calling app, Qik Video Connect, promising cross-platform calls between Android and iOS devices. The new app – a free download – now allows you to see your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad 2 owning friends as you mock them for not having the latest Android.
There’s also video mail, the ability to share videos with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social networking sites, and support for the front and rear facing cameras on most devices. Qik has also boosted video quality and reduced battery life impact, and some phones – Samsung Galaxy Tab, Samsung Galaxy Player, Samsung Galaxy S, and Telus Samsung Galaxy S Fascinate 4G – will offer VGA quality streaming when done over WiFi.
You’ll need an Android 2.1 or above device in order to use the app – or of course an iOS device. Video mail is only free until June 1 2011, however, and will be a subscription service after that.
