    i tried to download the qik app on the market because its an update, but instead of removing the old app or just updating it, it installs a second app right next to it. has anyone else noticed this? can anyone give any advice as to how to get it to do what others apps do (just updates ur current)?

    Qik 03.72 installed on EVO out of the box is 1.19MB. I installed Qik 03.765 from Market. It installed as a second app (both versions are in the app list) and is the size is 9.61MB, although Market claims it's 4.93MB.

    never understood why this app did this. youtube, google maps & gmail didn't when you downloaded from the market..is it because they are google apps? i have never used the qik app, so now i don't know which is which, lol...is there any difference between the two?

    i called htc and they basically said if enough people complain about it, MAYBE some will care. its the only app on the phone that ive noticed which adds a second app to the icon list... simple oversight that can be fixed fairly quickly, id assume, being that other apps like facebook, google stuff, youtube, etc, all seem to remove the old icon or directly update the preexisting app. htc also said if forum moderators noticed this, maybe they can bring it up to people at htc who can tell qik about it.
