Qik App Pulled After Huge Influx of Users Strain Their Servers

June 7, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

It’s easy to forgive Qik about the hefty amount of issues users have been facing with the launch of their new two-way video calling app for the HTC EVO 4G: not even Sprint could anticipate just how many devices would be sold as their activation servers came to a halt at some point during launch day.

Qik’s stated that they’re working diligently on resolving the issues by adding more servers to handle the 20x increased volume they’re normally used to. Until that time, however, they’ve been forced to unpublish the application from the market over the weekend to keep more new EVO owners from downloading it. As of the time of this posting, they have not yet updated us on the situation, but we’ll inform you when they do.
