Qik Updated To v0.1.4: Adds Location Awareness & UI Features

qiklocation Nikolaus & Raptor let me know that Qik has updated their application to v0.1.4 from v0.0.11. I heard rumors that this new version adds support for the Storm but I cannot confirm that so let me know if you try.

The new version brings:

  • Location awareness based on CellID or GPS. You can set the settings to: (more info)
    • Off: When set to this, the location from where you are streaming is not captured.
    • City: The location is captured and displayed at the city level, i.e. viewers will see the city from where you are streaming and nothing more.
    • Street: The street from where you start streaming is displayed to the viewer.
    • Track Live/Precise: In this case as you stream and move around, your location is tracked and displayed.
  • Qik’s interface has now also changed and if Wi-Fi is not available asks if you want to switch to 3G or stay
    with WiFi.
  • UI now lets you upload a video from the menu, name your video, describe your video, send a twitter alert of your video, and mute audio.
