Shortly after we tried QIK on the iPhone, Larry discovered that (here we go again) it only works on WiFi. That’s right, if you are on 3G the app records the video and then, when you are connected to WiFi (and presumably launch the app again because.. oh, right, no background apps), it uploads the video.
Well, Larry tweeted the bad news and… within seconds he got a response… from Qik’s marketing director!
A. AT&T and Apple need to fix this
B. Qik users need to send good energy out
C. We LOVE dealing with companies that are responsive, are honest and open, are respectful (veiled reference to this post from yesterday) and who rebel against the trend of anonymity and take the scholarly approach of actually using their names when communicating (less veiled reference to the same post).
We liked Qik a lot before this. We like them a whole lot more, now.
