The popular option for video chat on Android handsets is now available and better than ever on the iPhone. Today, Qik officially launched its Qik Video Connect app for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad 2 (although it isn’t completely optimized for the iPad).

Qik Video Connect offers two-way video calls and also lets you record video mail. Qik’s live broadcasting feature lets you post a live link to Facebook and Twitter, so friends can watch in real time as well…

The app includes all the basic features, such as, video chatting/streaming over 3G, 4G, or WiFi, in addition to recording in High-Definition (HD) video quality.

A new feature in the app includes the ability to leave a video voicemail. Users will be able to send or share video voicemail via text, email, Facebook and Twitter, to non-quick users as well.

The “plus” version of the app is available in the App Store for $2.99. The “plus” version includes seven real-time effects and filters, video editing tools, and support for high-def video. There will also be a free version of the app that excludes the effects for video chat, video editing, and HD recording. The free version is pending approval and will be available soon.

If you’ve purchased the app, do let us know your thoughts in the comments!

    I guess you have not seen Tango. That’s been available for a while on both platforms. Although qik’s version looks much better

  • It’s not the only way to video chat on android, Tango and Fring for Android are better then Qik Video chat.

    Tried calling someone with my touch 4G and cannot connect video chat.

    I’m kinda going off the point here but the camera on my iPhone 4 has just stopped working!
    🙁 the shutter won’t open and if it eventually does, it just freezes on an image. I’ve tried a hard reboot and even restoring but nothing works. I’m running iOS 4.2.1 jb using greenpoison. Has anybody else experienced this? If so how did you fix it? Please help!
