While browsing some new arrivals this afternoon, I noticed that Qik, one of the large players in the mobile video chat business, today released an app called Qik for Samsung, clearly targeted at users of Samsung Android devices. Qik has been releasing apps customized to certain classes of devices, or even individual ones, for as long as I can remember, starting with the EVO 4G last year, so seeing yet another variant doesn't surprise me (see Qik for Sprint, Qik for T-Mobile, and Qik for Atrix).

What is not clear is exactly what is optimized for Samsung devices compared to the regular Qik app and whether higher resolution video is available, so I'm going to leave it to you, Samsung device owners, to figure out and report back. Download the 3.8MB app using any of the methods in the widget below.

    Not found in market, or appbrain. Says device not compatible in web market??

    • b1ll

      Shows up in the web market - what device do you have and where? I wonder what exactly is supported by this app.

    • demus

      I experienced the same thing with my Captivate ...WTF?!

  • Jason

    I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab and in the app menu Qik was there. When I would click it it would say "Coming soon". When I seen this article I went to the Android Market and Qik for Samsung was actually an update for me. I believe this was for those of us with a Galaxy Tab P-1010.

    What I'm wondering is this is mainly to fix the video issue that some T-Mobile some Nexus S users are having after updated to gingerbread 2.3.4. Anyone know if this app allows you to use video chat over a non-wifi signal again?

  • Steve

    tried android market, says not compatible? I have Samsung Captivate, WTF!!! Tried market on phone, doesn't show up?

  • Wr3ck

  • marcus

    Found and installed just fine on my unlocked Samsung GS2, opened app, logged in and it looks and feels ok, will be trying this app out, preferably with friend who also has Samsung device.

  • James

    Same problem here. I've got the Epic 4G, Sprint's version of the Samsung Galaxy S, and the app is not compatible with it according to the Android Market. Strange. Not that I plan to keep this version (Qik was pre-installed for me, so I don't want two versions), but does anyone even know exactly what Samsung devices this app *is* compatible with?

  • NotBillable

    not showing up in market for by SGS i9000m in Canada....whats going on?

    I am hoping they fixed the issue of switching cameras. The old version always pointed to the back camera, and not the FFC.

  • wpfn

    Like to see many wonderful and beautiful things. Share our story opens with a different world。Mulberrys aesthetic can be a bit limiting on the bag front, though C things likestuds,mulberry bag embroidery or crystals wouldnt fit at all. Even this simple tricolor woven leather feels a bit rococo in the context of the bag. What do you think?
