Qik has rolled out its premium live video-streaming product to all Android users.

Qik Premium builds on the free Qik video service by adding a few extra features: unlimited video downloads and storage, sending and receiving video mail anytime, automatic video syncing with your computer through Qik Desktop, HD as well as 3D video recording on devices that support it, and priority customer support via a dedicated email.

Qik Premium is free for the first 30 days and $4.99 per month thereafter. The new app is available in the Android Market, and it’s also available for the iPhone [iTunes link].

History : Qik was acquired in January 2011 by Skype for north of $100 million.


When it comes to camera apps, it has been a while since I’ve really been wowed by anything I’ve seen. Most offer the same features – saturation, color effects, maybe some sort of Polaroid replica… you get the idea. I guess the development team at JFDP Labs felt the same way, because they have put together the most impressive camera app that I’ve ever seen, simply called Paper Camera.

(I had to throw this in, because I really like that tiny, #paper camera.)

Paper Camera offers some very cool effects like cartoon, sketch, comic book, old printer, neon, bleaching, half-tone, noir, old newspaper, and more. Not only are the effects top-notch, but it all happens in real-time. No post-processing going on here — what you see on the screen is exactly what you get.

It’s worth noting that this app isn’t currently compatible with Honeycomb, but the development team are aware of the issue and are actively working to get it fixed.

Paper Camera will set you back $2.42 (£1.50) from the Android Market, and you can hit the install button below to grab it.

After a long wait, Windows Phone 7 owners can now get their hands on Angry Birds.

The phenomenally popular game, which lets users slingshot angry birds through obstacles to attack pigs, is available for $2.99 to U.S. Windows Phone 7 owners. It’s also available internationally. To let users get a feel for the game before buying, developer Rovio is offering a free trial.

The Windows Phone 7 price on Angry Birds might surprise iPhone and Android handset owners. The game is currently available in Apple’s App Store for just 99 cents. In the Android Market, users can download a free, ad-supported version of Angry Birds.

Angry Birds has taken a long road to get to Windows Phone 7. Last fall, Microsoft posted a Web site for its Windows Phone 7 platform that included an Angry Birds icon, indicating the game was coming to handsets at launch. However, Rovio quickly responded on its Twitter feed, saying that it had “not committed to doing a Windows Phone 7 version” of Angry Birds. It went on to say that “Microsoft put the Angry Birds icon on their site without our permission.”

Microsoft responded, saying the Angry Birds icon was mistakenly added to the site, and took it down.

Following the spat, Microsoft announced in February that Angry Birds would arrive on its mobile platform in “late spring.” However, last month, WinRumors reported that the game was delayed from its original May 25 launch date to June 29.

Earlier this month, Rovio partnered with Roku in a deal that will see Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, and Angry Birds Rio come to Roku’s Channel Store. The games will be available in new Roku hardware launching this summer.
