Qik, a streaming video app that’s already shown up on Android and jailbroken iPhones, has an official app for the iPhone 3GS out. It’s Wi-Fi only, and without live streaming, but the developers say that will change.
In the meantime, Qik does have at least one truly notable advantage over the native video capture tool—allowing for video captures in portrait or landscape modes. There’s also location capturing for videos, and easier sharing tools for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and simple email sends. Qik can also share videos already stored on your video roll. In other words, if you’ve dug Qik’s functionality on another platform already, and you don’t mind the Wi-Fi-only and streaming limitations, you’ll probably dig Qik for the 3GS. It’s a free download for iPhone 3GS only.
