The folks over at Qik have announced that they will continue to allow the free use of premium services through the month of September. They acknowledge their "rocky start" and in return are throwing all of us using the HTC Evo 4G a bone:
Heya Android Qikkers - with the launch of the new Android client and video chat capability on HTC EVO 4G, we announced premium services for Qik that will enable you to get much more from your everyday Qikking. With the announcement we had an offer to provide the premium services for free till July 15, 2010. We understand that we had a bit of a rocky start with the new and improved Qik and so as a small token of appreciation we are now extending the offer to enjoy Qik's premium services for free till end of September.
Seems that video chat and conferencing is turning out to be more popular here in the states than any of us expected. Us Evo-ers took Qik out Qikkly last month, and the addition of a fruit flavored phone with a front camera brought Fring to it's knees. Hopefully everyone involved can rebound, and we can all have fun seeing just how goofy we look again! [Qik.com]
