These include enhanced features like real-time video effects, the capability to edit your videos prior to upload, and HD video quality uploads. This version also includes the ability to add Qik videos to your device’s camera roll.

The app is compatible with iPhone and 4th generation iPod Touch models running iOS 4 or later. The free version of Qik Video Connect should be available soon.
