    How does it look great? The quality of the video looks terrible.

    1) The APP looks great.

    2) It's a video of a video... How can you possibly judge how it will look?

    3) It's the iPhone camera it's not going to be the best looking thing ever.

    I have no idea how this could be accepted into the app store as there is no direct access to the camera in the SDK. This clearly violates the terms by using private frameworks so unless they have a special deal with Apple, I'm calling BS on this.

    this app can still be pulled off cydia so I would get it if you want to test drive it.

    I'm not talking about the video of a video. I'm talking about the actual Qik video that's on Kevin's Qik page.

    Yeah, it's not that great quality-wise -- but hey, it's better than nothing.

    However...I just don't see Apple approving this app. I hope I'm wrong...

    I hope this makes it in. It looks to be a fun and inventive app.

    I don't understand why people keep saying this. Half the legitimate "app store" apps I have allow direct access to the iPhone's camera (i.e., AirMe, Sketches, YouNote, etc.) So yes, this should be allowed.

    Just amazing to me how one wrong rumor or bit of speculation gets spread around so quickly and widely that it becomes known as fact when it isn't (just like the myth that you shouldn't go swimming right after you eat, which is simply not true!)

    It's not just a general access (ability to take pictures) to the camera that he's talking about (which IS allowed), but a specific USE of the camera to take video (or video-like) captures. I believe in the SDK it's not allowed, which is why people don't think videorecording is going to come to the App Store until Apple changes their policy, or brings videorecording on their own.
