Ustream Viewer Android app Review

Description:

The UStream Viewer Android app is one of the best live and recorded show viewing apps out on the market.  What makes it even better though, is that it is absolutely free.  While there isn’t a ton of content on there right now, the library is sure to grow.  This is just a beta app and is sure to get a lot bigger.

Features:

  • This app comes from one of the leading media platforms for live streaming interactive videos, ustream.com.  This is a great way to bring all the magic from the site and put it on your smartphone
  • There are a ton of features in this little app including the ability to watch recorded and live videos all for absolutely free
  • One of the best features of the app is that it will play all of the streaming video in a higher quality than other streaming apps
  • You can also access the chat comments that people are putting on the videos which is a fun little feature for your viewing
  • There is also a search option where you can go through the video library and filter through the different types of content that are on there

Conclusion:

There are a lot of streaming movie viewers out there but the Ustream Viewer is a cool beta app that allows you to see a lot of recorded and live broadcasts while just using your little smartphone.  It was put together by Ustream.com and even over the 3G networks the stream is actually pretty smooth and the video quality is also impressive.  The videos don’t skip very often and if you are connected to Wifi then the quality of the stream only gets better.  If you want, you can be a part of the chat forums by either toggling them on or off in order to talk to other people and see what they have to say.  You can only read the chats from the desktop stream and you can’t actually participate yet but it is still a cool feature.  The only problem that people have had with the app is that there is not a ton of quality content on the app yet for viewers to access.

This app has been given a rating of 3.75 out of 5 stars so the ratings are decent but not the very best out there.  You can download this app off of the Android app market for free which is a nice feature.
