Hey, it’s Edmond from the Ustream Product team! Today, we released a major update for our Viewer app which now combines the best of broadcasting and viewing into one convenient app. The new Ustream app
, which is supported on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices running iOS 4.1 and newer, boasts a number of new features (along with a spiffy facelift!) that we felt mattered most for our users on mobile devices.
