AndroidAppADay: Ustream Broadcaster

Wed, Apr 21, 2010

Android, Mobile

Every single Android phone there is comes with a camera and a 3G connection. Why is this relevant? Well, because those two tools that are standard features of today’s phones can turn you into a mobile broadcaster literally showing the world what you’re doing at that exact moment in video and live.

Ustream Broadcaster is an app that does only that purpose; it allows you to broadcast video using your Android phone’s browser at any time, anywhere. The quality may not be superb but think about things for a minute and put it all into perspective: You are broadcasting live video from anywhere, 10-15 years ago it most likely seemed laughable and impossible to think about.

I’ve used the app a few times with my Motorola Droid and it works great. The signal was never lost and I can actually view what chatters are typing in the chat room. It’s all very convenient and easy to use. Also, you can set it up so the app will record what you are streaming so you or everyone else can watch it later.

What good is streaming if no one is watching it? Well, Ustream Broadcaster attempts to remedy things a bit by providing a button that sends a message to twitter that you are broadcasting. This way anyone can take a look if they want provided they are following you.

Next time you take a trip to the grocery store, make it interesting and stream it. If anything, it will spice things up a bit.

Ustream Broadcaster is currently available on the Android Market.
