There we go. Just in time to stream President-to-be Obama’s Inaugural Ceremony live to every iPhone and iPhone 3G in on planet Earth, Ustream.tv has announced that their Ustream Viewing Application is live in the iPhone App Store! Ustream had been waiting on Apple to green-light the live video-stream viewer for acceptance into the App Store, and are proud to make their new iPhone app available for free.
Just this morning we told you about Ustream’s iPhone app announcement. Tonight, the Ustream Viewing Application is ready to pull down live video streams of all shows on Ustream.tv’s site. The new Ustream iPhone app boasts a live interactive chat feature that allows Ustream.tv users to chat about the show they’re watching.
Unfortunately, the app is limited to WiFi-only viewing for the sake of decent video quality. But, Ustream did mention that we should “stay tuned for developments,” so we’re going to keep our fingers crossed for an update that enables viewing over 3G data connections (we’re going to go ahead and dismiss any EDGE-enabling updates altogether).
Keep an eye on Ustream’s live streaming coverage of the Presidential Inauguration on January 20!
