Qik, the video calling and messaging service that Skype acquired in 2011, is shutting down next month. Having already replicated the Qik feature set in Skype, there's no longer a need to maintain the app. Users can continue using Qik until April 30, 2014, but the apps will cease working that day. Videos recorded on Qik will also be deleted, so members must use the dashboard to download their content from the dashboard to save their videos or upload them to YouTube. Videos sent by VideoMail will not be able to be downloaded. Qik says that Premium users will be refunded for service after the cancellation date, and more information can be found at the source link below.source: Qik, via: The Next Web
