As owner of a jailbroken iPhone and very satisfied user of Qik, I have to say that all of you ‘unjailbrokens’ out there are in for a pleasant surprise.  According to sometimes on (nano) sometimes off (BluRay), Kevin Rose, the deviant little app is on its way to the App Store.  Hopefully they won’t have to cripple it too much to get it on there.

This little app uses your iPhone’s camera to upload live streaming video to Qik’s server where onlookers can watch as live events unfold.  Frankly we’re not sure why a Stevenote hasn’t fallen victem to Qik’s eyes yet.


Last month I sent news of my son’s birth out live via Qik on my iPhone.  It worked wonderfully.  (crying baby alert)
