Meerkat for Android: the official beta version has been released
Does somebody have never heard about Meerkat? It is one of the most popular applications for smartphones of the last months that had great success among iPhone users.
The idea to broadcast your life using your smartphone liked so much that the application has reached 300,000 users in just 20 days of its publication.
Android users have been waiting for a long time!
Meerkat was in fact initially released only for the iPhone and it tooks a lot of time before being available on Android. The wait was wearing for many users who couldn't wait to use Meerkat on their Android phone. We read in some forums that the more impatient switched from Android to iPhone just to be able to use Meerkat.
In the last month we received hundreds of emails asking: when the official version of Meerkat for Android will be released? Finally we are happy to say that the official version of Meerkat for Android is now available!
How does Meerkat work?
Before starting to have fun with this nice app we want to remind you some Meerkat's features so that you can get the best in using it.
- Meerkat lets you stream online what you're capturing with the camera of your mobile phone but does not give you the chance to limit viewing to a restricted group of people. So, keep in mind that everything you stream with Meerkat is potentially visible to anyone!
- Meerkat is, at least for the moment, very close to Twitter. If you are on line, all those who follow you on Twitter will know and will be able to follow your transmission.
- Anyone who is following your live can interact with you via the chat, this is an useful feature to get question and answer.
- Meerkat allows you to schedule a transmission in order to warn in advance your followers.
There is still a lot to improve
Although it is very easy to go online, other important functions seem a little bit confused or completely missing.
For example, we could not find a way to see all our scheduled broadcasts or how to undo one of them. Even the search should be improved: you can search for users to follow but you can not search among all the live using a keyword.
However, the application is still in beta, and we expect that it will soon be enhanced with new features.
This is the Meerkat apk download link, we recommend you to create an alert to be informed about the new updates that will be soon available.
We are sure you'll have a lot of fun with Meerkat.
