Got Video on Qik? Move It Or Lose It

With every innovation comes a shutting of the door. Qik is (was) a mobile video recording and sharing app for Android and iOS mobile devices. Qik is owned by Microsoft which owns Skype. Many of the features of Qik have been incorporated into Skype so that leaves little reason to continue supporting Qik.

The short version is that if you have videos on the Qik site you need to download them before April 30, 2014. If you don't your content is history. The app will not function and life will go on without Qik.

My philosophy is to have a backup copy and then create an offline backup copy.

Your alternatives are Instagram, Vine and whomever is left standing in the dust.
