Broadcast for Friends
Ustream launched a new app called Broadcast for Friends this week. Currently available only for the iPhone, the app allows you to broadcast live video directly to your Facebook wall.
Videos can be recorded using either the forward-facing or rear-facing camera on your phone, and there are a number of built-in filters — which can be changed while you shoot –- to give your video a distinctive look.
