Qik Launches iPhone-Formatted Site, Lets You Watch Qiks On iPhone
Flash video support on the iPhone can be a real pain, especially when you want to watch someone’s video on a site like Qik.Thankfully they have heard out frustration and have launched a mobile version of their website with QuickTime-formatted videos that can be watched from the Mobile Safari browser.
Now, when you go to a website at Qik.com on an iPhone or iPod touch, you are automatically transferred to the iPhone-formatted version that lets you access a number of features, including:
- View Hot Qiks, Top Qikkers
- View someone’s profile page by going to qik.com/[username]
- Search for Qiks
- Playback Qiks
- View location of the Qik (currently limited to Qiks streamed from iPhone)
- Login to view and edit your profile
- Add Title, Description, Tags to your Qiks
- Set Privacy for your Qiks
- Follow other Qikkers
- and Share Qiks with Others
A more exciting feature that’s new to the iPhone-formatted version is the ability to view Qiks on a map, something they say is specifically for Qiks taken on iPhones.
