Everyone knows we here at BGR have a long-standing love affair with mobile video streaming service Qik so it’s with great sadness we report that it has become the latest victim of Apple’s App Store shenanigans. Now ripe for the pickin’ for all 3GS owners, Qik for iPhone comes with with two ridiculous caveats attached — Wi-Fi only and no live streaming. In other words, if you want to get your video up ASAP while you’re roaming about town you better have a few bucks in your pocket to pop into a Starbucks and buy a latte because without that Wi-Fi you’re S.O.L. A build of Qik with live streaming over 3G has been submitted to Apple’s App Store approval monkeys, but honestly, we’re not holding out much hope that it will slide through. Why? Because it would just be oh so silly for Apple to allow a company to get an app approved without having to fundamentally disrupt its entire purpose.
