Review Skype Qik

Brandon Girod
Simple and seamless interface
No preview or post editing features
Skype Qik: Group Video Chat for Android didn’t start off with Skype or video chatting. In fact, it was a video streaming app that debuted before even YouTube did. What it is today is an extremely simple and easy to use video chat app, much to the likes of Facetime and Skype.
Don’t confuse the functionality of this app to be the same as the ones mentioned above. You won’t be having real-time conversations with your buddies in the same way you would with Skype. Instead, you’ll be sending video messages, much like SMS. The maximum length of one video message is 42 seconds. They've also got a feature for quick responses called Quik Flix. These are 5 second long videos that you can save to use frequently if you’re short on time.
Like I said before, the app is super easy to use. All you have to do is pull down from the main screen and the camera is rolling. You can quickly go from your back camera to your front camera at the touch of a button. The app doesn't feature any editing or previews either. Once you’re done recording the video it goes straight to the recipient, although you can later delete the video once it’s sent if you don’t like it. Videos successfully sent are store for two weeks before they’re automatically deleted, and you can’t save the videos from inside the app itself.
Skype Qik is a fun way to stay in contact with your friends and family. There’s no texting options, so everything is captured fully in video. I found the app to be fun to use, and actually pretty effective in having decent conversations. It’s easy to use and… quick!
