Qik is having a little issue with supporting the record breaking number of Evo 4Gs sold over the weekend. Qik had anticipated an increase in traffic through it’s servers, but to put it in their words, “It truly is beyond what we had imagined.”
There was a little issue with getting the Qik app on the market in the first place, which was quickly resolved, then the Evo users hit Qik with 20x workload on Qik’s servers. It seems like Qik has grossly underestimated the number of users that would want to actually use their Evo 4G front facing camera for video chats. A 20x increase is amazing, but Qik is obviously not prepared for it. They have since removed the App from the Market and are scrambling to figure out what to do next. My solution: 20x the number of servers and bandwidth you currently have.
Let’s here it Evo users? Is Qik working for you, that is if you are one of the lucky who downloaded it before it was removed?
