Live video and chat on your iPhone
- Easy to use
- Chat and watch
- Watch all channels
- No broadcasting
Justin.tv is one of the most popular and diverse places for user-generated live video. The website allows you to easily broadcast your own video for free, to as many viewers as are interested, and now the full service is available on this iPhone app.
Justin.tv has a standard iPhone interface, with a central scrollable part, and option bar at the bottom. There are Featured channels, Favorites, Search, About, and More tabs. If you have an account, you can import your favorite channels, otherwise you can build your own as you explore the video content.
While watching a channel you can chat with other viewers. Once you've created a Justin.tv account, you can also save and share channels you like. Sharing will open your mail app, so you can send the link to your friends. Twitter and Facebook integration is missing here!
The app works fairly well. Occasionally it crashes and will shut down, but it's not too bad. Now Justin.tv version 2 has introduced is the ability to broadcast from your iPhone's camera - this makes it a really cool application as it's so easy to get into. Broadcasting on the move could hardly be easier!
Justin.tv is slightly unstable, but a pretty good live TV streaming app nonetheless.
