UStream iPhone Application Hits App Store With Live Streaming

Posted Dec 9, 2009

The UStream iPhone application has hit the iTunes App Store and I’m shocked that it has live streaming. Before it was impossible to have live streaming on your iPhone unless the phone was jailbroken. Now the UStream Live Broadcaster is live and it doesn’t have to be on just WiFi, 3G is supported.

When the iPhone 3G S was released, one of the features Apple touted was the video recording capabilities. These videos could only be uploaded to UStream up until now. This is the first time I have heard of an approved iPhone application that supports video to be streamed on the web as it is being recorded.

The application has the ability to report where and when you are recording a video. This includes sending out tweets and Facebook messages. Geo-location is supported so that you can report where you are recording from. Qik has had a live-streaming application for a while, but it was not available on the App Store.
