Skype Qik lets you record short videos in real time and share them with a group of friends. Your recordings will show up as video messages in a chat window.

Pros

Requires no log-in: You can start using Skype Qik without registering an account, and you can create groups by adding people from your phonebook. In this regard, it's much more convenient than other similar video sharing platforms.

You can prerecord videos: Because Skype Qik lets you prerecord clips of yourself and use them as replies to your friends' video messages, you can get quite creative with it and record all manner of funny faces and expressions like smilies, no-nos, OMGs, and more.

Pleasant to use: Skype Qik has a clean and appealing interface, free from distractions. Switching between the front and back camera is quick and straightforward, as is creating groups or sharing videos.

Cons

Won't let you snap photos: The ability to capture photos and share them with your friends would have been a nice addition.

Crashes and errors: Crashes when recording videos and sharing errors are fairly common. While these issues are more or less unavoidable when using apps of this kind, this app seems to have more of them than other video sharing tools.

Videos get automatically deleted: While this means a good privacy rating for the app, if you ever want to replay some old favorites you must make sure you email them to yourself, or send them to another app.

Bottom Line

Because of its easy login process and quick recording capabilities, Skype Qik can encourage you to record and share more videos with your friends. It's a good app overall and quite fun, although sometimes annoying because of its technical imperfections.
