Live-streaming video site Justin.tv has officially launched an Android app that lets you shoot live video with your phone’s camera and stream it over the web. I’ve been testing a beta version of the app for a few weeks, and in fact I shot my unboxing video of the Augen GenTouch78 Android tablet using the Justin.tv Android app.
Overall, I’ve been quite impressed with the app. It’s incredibly simple to use. Just hit the record button and it will start live-streaming video from your phone. Enter your Twitter and/or Facebook credentials and it can automatically let your contacts know when you’re streaming. And you can hit the Chat button to enter text during your live-stream — although it’s probably easier just to talk into your phone’s mic.
The video quality is good, but not great. Clearly your results will vary depending on your phone’s camera and your internet connection.
If you don’t have a Justin.tv account you can sign up for one for free.
The Justin.tv Android app is available as a free download from the Android Market. The company plans to launch an iPhone version soon as well.
You can find a few more screenshots after the break.
