About a month ago, Microsoft published Skype Qik, a “new mobile messenger for swapping videos with groups of friends”, which is available for Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Unfortunately, none of my contacts uses Skype Qik yet, so I don’t have any personal experience with this app.
Although, the first feature update (version 184.108.40.206) for Windows Phone has been published today. The main change is the implementation of a feature, called “Qik Flik”, that was already available for Android and iOS users before. With Qik Flik, you can record short videos with a duration of five seconds that you can share later with your contacts.
In my opinion, it’s a shame that Qik Flik was available for Android and iOS weeks before it came to Windows Phone, but the poor market share of Windows Phone might be a reason.
Do you use Skype Qik? Did you already install the new update for Windows Phone or do you use the app on Android or iOS where Qik Flik was already available?
