There is a new competition in town when it comes to livestreaming stuff in front of your Android device camera lenses, and it is the updated Livestream for Producers app. It now allows you streaming over 3G or 4G connectivity, and a single-tap login, including with your Facebook account. The app has been at the App Store for a while already.
Its strength lies in the ability to mix the live video streams over any connection, including slower 3G speeds, with picture and text posts, forming a live blog of sorts. You can also moderate comments in real time, and there is even an FTP server support so you can receive photos and video from a DSLR camera with Wi-Fi radio.
Livestream is now encouraging everyone to liveblog and stream their experiences during Hurricane Sandy, and will be featuring the best feeds on a dedicated web page.
