The Qik app that first arrived in the App Store earlier this month has already been updated to a new version that removes the Wi-Fi only restriction. At its initial release, the popular video sharing application was able to upload previously-recorded videos to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Qik's own site via Wi-Fi only. Now, video uploads can also be done over a 3G or EDGE cellular data connection.

The Qik iPhone app still lacks the ability to stream live video, a feature present in versions available for other platforms.

The Qik app is free and can be found here (link opens iTunes).

Let me know if this App is any good. I mean, with a 3GS we can already directly upload video to Youtube or FaceSpace or MyFace, so what does this App do in addition to that, and how well does it work? thanks.

Let it have the ability to stream (as the original app always had when it was a jailbroken-only app) and then you might have something. Otherwise, meh . . .

Qik has live streaming; perfect for those Apple keynotes. :D

This is where the inconsistency of the app store review process drive developers like us crazy!

We had an app rejected because "it is transferring excessive volumes of data over the cellular network". Our app does NO video uploading, it basically showcases iPhone optimized sites only.

Their recommended solution was to "to restrict your application to Wi-Fi".
