Justin.tv Brings Live Broadcasting to its iPhone App

Streaming video website Justin.tv has released a new version of its iPhone app that allows users to broadcast live video directly from the app over 3G and WiFi. This means that Justin.tv users, wherever they are, can share what’s going on around them with the rest of the Internet, in real-time.

The app joins a growing market of live broadcasting apps, with Ustream and Qik already providing the functionality on the iPhone.

Today’s announcement follows last month’s release of an Android Justin.tv app, which first introduced mobile, live broadcasting to Justin.tv users.

The iPhone app will offer live broadcasting to iPhone 4 and 3GS users along with a smattering of other features:

Simple, one-click broadcasting interface. Just click the big red button

Broadcast and share instantly on Facebook and Twitter.

Chat with friends in real-time within the application, while broadcasting

Support for iPhone 4 front-facing camera and flash

Broadcast on 3G or WiFi with smooth video and clear audio

Broadcasts saved to watch later automatically

Watch any stream live on 3G or WiFi

Push notifications when someone you follow goes live

Browse live video with categories and filters

With Justin.tv already saying that it “continues to grow with an average of 32 hours of live video streamed and ingested into the system every minute,” we can only speculate on what the addition of live-broadcasting for the iPhone could mean.
