The iOS Live Streamer is an Apple Accepted application (find it in your App Store on your Apple device, iPhone, etc) that allows you to live stream from your Apple device; like your iPhone.

What does this mean? This means that you can stream from anywhere that allows your device to connect to the Internet via wi-fi, and anyone to whom you've sent the link to your live stream can watch and hear it on their computer, laptop or mobile device.

Examples:

  • Sporting events-- you can broadcast your child's baseball game or soccer match so that family far away can enjoy it.
  • Public Meetings-- want to share important civic events going on locally with those who might be interested? Your monthly town hall meetings can be broadcasted from your iPhone to the entire community.
  • Special day-- the big birthday party can be shared across town or around the world
  • Holidays-- share thanksgiving with loved ones in another town or another country
  • Business-- allow your client to see the inside of that special new home RIGHT NOW! LIVE
