Knocking Live brings live streaming to Android
Knocking Live Video, first launched for the iPhone is now ready for the Android. At the beginning the application was not officially approved due to a private API the solution was using. Finnaly Pointy Heads Software made it and with the new version you can actually do phone to phone live streaming using two different devices: the iPhone and the Android.
Here is the first app for the iPhone being presented:
Using 3G technology and Wi Fi networks one can broadcast live video from his Android to any iPhone in the network. All you need to do is to get the app, install it and set your account. Then you will be able to browse all your friends who are in the network and send them a request to start broadcasting. Once they get the invitation they have to approve it in order to receive the video feed.
This is how the app looks like on the device:
“We’ve had enormous success as the only phone-to-phone 3G video app on the iPhone. Knocking just keeps on growing. We’re excited to debut on Android, and to let Android users interact with iPhone users in ways they haven’t ever been able to before” said Jim Montalto from Pointy Heads Software.
Here is the Android demo:
The new version of Knocking LIVE allows users to also browse other profiles and access forums to share their experiences with the community. The server capacity is improved and now the load times are faster and peer to peer connections are possible. Read more about what a peer to peer connection is HERE.
Since the iPhone app had 13,000 downloads a day I am looking forward to see what will happen with the Android version.
