Ustream released the new iOS app on August 27th with plenty of new updates and features. Let’s see what’s really under the hood.
The new iOS app has a modern design with reinterpreted surfaces and features, making content discovery seamless and engaging more viewers on both the larger format iPad screen and on iPhone.
The app also allows users to upload videos they have recorded on the built-in iPhone camera app and easily create, edit and delete videos, channels and events inside the application. Live streaming capability has also been enhanced, allowing high-quality 16:9 format broadcasting directly from the phone. Users now have the freedom to upload their own pictures and connect their Facebook and Twitter accounts with the application. By expanding the use-cases to encompass capturing short clips intended for on-demand consumption, the Ustream platform is now even more suitable for applications like knowledge sharing and informal training.
We have updated our Ustream application for iOS devices with a great new interface designed specifically for iPad users. In addition to native support for Apple’s tablet we have made some key improvements to the application for iPhone and iPod touch users including access to all content through some extensive backend server updates.
You can download the application directly from the App Store or grab your iDevice and search for Ustream.
