Qik submits iPhone app with live streaming tech

updated 03:25 pm EST, Wed December 9, 2009

Move follows release of live Ustream app

Video hosting site Qik says it has submitted a new iPhone application to the App Store, one capable of live streaming. The present app has so far been limited to recording video, then uploading it and sharing it through various websites. The Qik website, by contrast, has for sometime let users run live feeds alongside regular clips.

The submission comes on the same day as rival site Ustream has released its own streaming app. It is unknown if the Qik software will similarly support streaming over 3G, though the feature is likely given current upload compatibility. Live video is a new phenomenon on the iPhone, in part because video itself was only made an option after the introduction of the iPhone 3GS.
