Qik debuts live streaming iPhone app

updated 09:35 am EST, Thu December 24, 2009

Includes location info, social networking

Having been submitted over two weeks ago, Qik's live streaming app has finally appeared at the App Store. In contrast with the earlier Qik for 3GS, which can only record and upload, Qik Live is designed for real-time broadcasting to a web audience. The app supports both 3G and Wi-Fi connections, and any model of iPhone, though the original is effectively tied to Wi-Fi hotspots.

Users can make streams private or public, and chat with viewers, optionally providing location information at the same time. City, Street and Precise levels of positioning can be chosen; any movement generates a map trail. The app can also send manual or automatic updates to Facebook, Twitter or YouTube, and operate in a limited offline mode. Qik Live is a free download, and requires iPhone 3.1 firmware.
