Qik Video Connect app for Apple iPhone includes video chat across platforms
Starting today, the Qik application for the Apple iPhone will be just as good as the version that Android users have enjoyed. And not only will iOS 4 device owners be able to video chat, but they will also be capable of chatting to others across different platforms. Prior to the launch of Qik Video Connect for iPhone, only Qik users on Android were able to partake in Video Chat. Now, the feature will now allow Qik enabled iPhone and Android users to have a two-way video chat with each other.

Another improvement will allow a live streaming video to be put up and viewed on Facebook or Twitter's social feed instead of having to go back to Qik's own page. The free version of the app records standard definition video, but for those who like the finer things in life, a $3 upgrade will add HD video uploading from the iPhone 4 with on-device video editing and real-time effects for any live video chat or stream.

The service should be available later today for any device running iOS4.

Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuutttttttttttt.................. iphone users will still only be able to videochat in the comfort of thier own home where they have wifi available... in other words... they might as well just use a PC with a webcam.... BUSTEDDDD

Maybe not....My girlfriend uses the Tango app on her iphone 4 (Verizon) and can use it with the mobile network.

That's a big negative ghost rider. Video calling can be used over 3G with various apps. FaceTime is the only one that requires wifi...for now anyway. I assume once a LTE iPhone is built that may change.

J is right. FaceTime is the only app with the wifi requirement. Tango, yahoo IM, skype, and fring, all allow over 3G. The tmobile commercials overstate the facts.
