Smart Phone Apps for Live-streaming Video

Smart Phone Apps for Live-streaming Video

social networks (e.g., Facebook, Twitter) have their own apps, while
first-movers in the space (e.g., Meerkat) are busily trying to
differentiate themselves.

impromptu video blogging to produced efforts by industry veterans. For
small businesses, live-streaming video may be a helpful, new way to
engage an audience and establish a brand with little or no cost.
