Qik and CupCake Camp

Every now and again, its nice to be able to video and broadcast even when you were not planning on it. I was at cupcake camp and it was a madhouse. Lord of the flies in full effect when the cupcake come out. So I took a few shots, then though, this is a video moment. Now Cycorder will do a better job of recording, but in this case, broadcasting in real time is more fun, vs recording, going home and hoping I get around to moving the files off the iphone and then post them somewhere.

Provides realtime streaming video from your iphone to a web page where anyone can see it.  (If you set the permissions as such).  Also, if the phone cannot get a connection, it will hold the video till it does. Cool points for being able to see the video on the iphone.  More here.

About time.  I was actually surprised it took this long.. but we have a winner!  yes, Qik videos can now been seen on the iPhone. How? mov player of course.  The quality is pretty darn good.

This has been a weakness since both Qik, flixwagon and even livecliq (which I have yet to get working) from the start.  And I have not been the only one wondering why we could not have .mov on our devices.

Well wait no more kiddies!!   Now, you need jailbreak of course, but Qik is one of the ‘this is why I jailbroke my phone’ apps.

Three user friendly solutions for accessing your iPhone like a USB drive

Since we carry our iPhones (and sometimes iPods) with us no matter where we go, why not carry a few documents as well?  I choose three application that are useful for using your iPhone as a remote storage device.   If there is one I missed that offers unique functionality, please let me know.

I think most of us are familiar with USB drives to move files around. Well, with iPhones having 8, 16 and 32 gigs of memory, there is plenty of space to put documents, like spreadsheets and powerpoint , images, music and so on on the phone such that we can have access to it at all times. If you are in sales, how cool would it be to have a collection of presentation documents available at anytime?

For those of you without jailbroken phones, just keeping moving along.. nothing to see here.. Ok, for the rest of you, there are 4 programs out there for taking video and for me, one that I cannot seem to get to work.

Cycoder: This is a pretty good app with a very simple UI. Start and stop. That’s it. The video is compiled on the fly and saved as a .mov file. If you used cycoder when it first came out, it did not have sound. Well, we have sound now.

I took the movie below using Cycoder, and given how much action there is in the scene, its not that bad.  Lets keep in mind this is a phone not spec’ed for taking movies after all. )

Well, one day to go.  Tomorrow will be nuts with crowds and I will bet all kinda of odd things going on.  What is different this year is social media and the tools, especially hand held remotely connected devices, that can record and report from anywhere at anytime.

As such, there are three tools you should have on your iphone tonight.
