Tablet users will be happy to know there’s a new Android 3.x Honeycomb-optimized app to add to their collection. Ustream has just released its new app for large screens. This app allows users to broadcast and view live videos straight from Honeycomb tablets. Whether you’re making a podcast, filming a show or just sharing your adventures, Ustream will let you get away from your computer to do so.
The user interface is well designed and works very well in the tablet’s larger screen. When using the viewer, there are different tabs separating “Live,” “Upcoming” and “Recent” broadcasts, making videos much more organized. You’ll still get lost in the plethora of live videos, so that search button might turn out to be very handy. You can also browse by category, which should definitely make things more efficient.
Broadcasting your videos is easy. Simply click on the camera button in the top right corner. It’ll ask you for your Ustream username and password. After that, choose to share the broadcast via your Facebook or Twitter acount and hit “Tap To Send And Go Live!”
If you use the Ustream app on a smartphone, you’ll get the following improvements:
- Move the app to SD card to free up storage space
- Watch even more shows and videos on mobile with new, enhanced format handling
- Use the app on even more supported devices, now including Nexus S
Honeycomb tablet owners know a new tablet-optimized app is always exciting, since there aren’t many yet. It sure deserves to be checked out. So, head over to the Android Market and download the new Ustream app and let us know what you think. Do you use Ustream? (Try saying that three times fast). If so, what do you use it for? Broadcasting or viewing?
