Qik Premium for Android carries a $5 price tag, but offers a slew of new features
Showing off its depth of functionality, the addition of Qik’s premium version for Android provides users a tad more features that are sure to entertain and keep people going with the video chat/capture service. For those Qik users that are interested, they can pay the $4.99 per month service fee to experience some of the premium offerings with the app.

Basically, you’ll have now have the ability to sync Qik videos to your home computer with Qik Desktop, which then gives you the opportunity of editing and sharing them. Also, premium users are greeted with the option of sending/receiving video mail and uploading your own personal videos outside of Qik to your account.

And if you happen to own a handset that’s capable of shooting in high definition or 3D, you’ll be happy to know that you can record video on them as well. Finally, you won’t need to worry about running out of space because premium users are given an unlimited amount of storage and priority support from Qik if you happen to have any issues with the service.

For the money, it appears you’re getting a huge chunk of useful features that will keep you shooting videos on your handset.

Did I read that correctly $4.99 per MONTH. Maybe a onetime $4.99 charge, but every month I DON'T think so. $59.88 per year, I won't do it. It's not worth it at all. I already pay a monthly price for my phone & to add to that is not on my game plan. I am VERY happy the way it is right now. Thanks BUT no thanks!

Really, $4.99 per MONTH? That is really expecting a lot from people, especially since qik video has been crap lately and most people haven't even been able to use it on there phones. I couldn't imagine a lot people actually doing this, unless they like to throw money away. I could see $4.99 for a one time fee, otherwise no thanks.

Phonearena, your pop-up advertisements suck. Get rid of them. I can always go to Engadget, Mobileburn, IntoMobile, Phonescoop, Cnet, GSMarena. Just get rid of the pop-ups and I'll stay.

Firefox + Adblock Plus. I always feel bad for people who complain about ads because in all honesty I haven't had an add in(probably) 2 years. No YouTube video ads, no Hulu ads, no ads at all!
