Ustream iPhone app coming
A dedicated Ustream app is in development for the iPhone, according to company head John Ham. The app will let users tap into the main features of the site, which allows visitors to not only watch live video broadcasts, but participate in chat with others. Most other details of the app are unknown, but it is likely to require a 3G or Wi-Fi connection, and Ham suggests it will be available "in a matter of days."
Ustream is meanwhile distributing a limited number of preview copies. To receive one, iPhones must sync their phones with iTunes, click on the words "Serial Number," and copy the identifier number that is displayed. The number must then be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org so a custom-tailored app can be delivered.
