#QikOrItDidntHappen: Connecting with Friends is More Fun with Skype Qik

My phone’s been beeping for a new kind of notification the past few days. My friends and I can’t seem to get enough of sending each other quirky videos over Skype Qik, and we’re having loads of fun that sometimes we don’t send texts or make calls anymore!  Looks like it’s going to be “Goodbye chat” and “Hello video-chat!” for us for now.
Skype Qik is basically a video-messaging app that lets you instantly send video messages to your friends (or group of friends) in your phone. Picture this: instead of just sharing photos of what you’re having for lunch, how about sending a video of yourself munching on that oh so juicy steak, or gobbling up several pieces of sushi in a matter of seconds? That has got to be more mouth-watering, if you ask me.
I’ve tried a few apps before that allowed me to send videos with my buddies, but I’m having more fun with Skype Qik right now because I get to be more creative and expressive given that you can make videos up to 40 seconds long.  Check out below a snippet of one the videos I made and sent to my friends:
And that’s just a part of the conversation! I’ll leave it to your imagination to guess what we’ve been “QIK-ing” about that led to that video..haha. Take a quick look at the video below to get an idea of how much more fun it can get! 
I can already imagine this becoming pretty useful when something awesome is happening around me, and I wanted to share it with my friends. Spontaneous adventures and experiences happen all the time, but you know how things are these days  –  Pictures or it didn’t happen.  Now to make things more believable, I tell my friends: “#QikOrItDidntHappen!” A video should be more convincing, yeah?
Would your friends believe you when you say you’ve met these guys on the street? #QikIt to prove it!

It’s already good enough that it’s downloadable on both Android and iOS, but what’s even cooler is that all SMART users get to download and use Skype Qik free of data charges for three months! Yep, FREE FOR THREE MONTHS FROM SMART, as long as you’re an Android or iOS user. Nice! Check out how it works here.
You know what, don’t just take my word for it, but experience the fun for yourself! Just download and Qik!
