The Best Android Apps for Viewing Events Live
It’s tough to attend every event you want to. Luckily, with cell phone technology, you are now able to watch live events from the comfort of your smartphone.
FOMO: “Anxiety that an exciting or interesting event may currently be happening elsewhere; often aroused by posts seen on a social media website; abbreviation of fear of missing out” – The Oxford Dictionary. With the rise of social media, many people suffer from this illness; however, there are quite a few applications for Android that can help alleviate the symptoms of this terrible disease. Best of all: all of these apps are free!
Maybe you had homework or maybe you had a date with your girlfriend; whatever the reason, you are missing out on the big concert and are filled with regret. Luckily, Livestream has you covered. Livestream allows you to watch both live and broadcasted events from your phone. If you can’t afford tickets to the local concert you were itching to go to, then Livestream will most likely have it recorded. With over 5 million downloads and a 4.1 star rating, you can’t go wrong with Livestream.
Ustream also allows you to conveniently broadcast live events from your phone; however, with Ustream, you can communicate with other people who are attending the live event. For instance, if you are missing out on a concert, you can connect with someone else with the app to see how it is going. This app also enables you to broadcast the events yourself from the camera on your phone. You can follow certain Ustream channels that are tailored to your interests; for instance, if you are a soccer fanatic, then there is a soccer channel for you to watch all of the big games.
Periscope is another application that allows you to stream live events. It also allows you to watch replay highlights of videos you missed. So, if you missed the big football game because you had a wedding to go to, then Periscope has you covered. You can watch all of the highlights while skipping over the boring parts of the game. Periscope also allows you to broadcast live to private groups; if you don’t want the whole world watching the event you are at, then you can privately send it to a group of friends.
While you are catching up on the events you weren’t able to attend, make sure you are using PSafe’s products to keep your phone secure and running smoothly.
