Today was a rather exciting day as I heard about Ustream releasing a new Mobile iPhone App for the iPhone & the Droid. So what is this new Ustream Mobile app, & what is mobile streaming? Well, Mobile streaming is the ability to do a live video feed straight from your mobile phone. This is huge & exciting new technology for us in the real estate industry. What this new Ustream Mobile App does, is allows you to transform your basic iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, or Droid smart phone into a live video streaming machine.
The app works really easy & with just a few simple clicks of a button, you are now able to share live video feeds with the world. Since the Ustream Mobile App is created by the makers of Ustream.tv, it also allows you to use their other great features. Which means you can create video & instantly feed it to your Facebook Page, Twitter Account & also to YouTube. The best part of all, is that the Ustream Mobile App, is totally free!
Here are my top features of the Ustream Mobile app:
- Uploads straight from phone to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, & Ustream
- Integrates the Ustream chat right onto phone while doing live streams.
- Allows video to now be recorded on iPhone 3G without needing to "jailbreak" phone.
- Save videos to be uploaded later when you are not in a 3G or wifi area.
- Ustream Mobile app is free!
So how could the Ustream Mobile App be used to enhance your Real Estate Business? Here are a few ways you might find this type of program useful:
- Showing property to buyers who are not in town. You can use your phone to show the property, answer their questions & also show them first hand what the property looks like. So, if the buyer wants to know what color the cabinets are, you can walk into the kitchen & show them the cabinets in a live stream.
- Updating a Seller on the Condition of their Property. Especially as we go into the winter season, there are times where you have an emergency with a home that you need to share with the seller immediately to make a decision. I remember one time we had a home where we had a very cold day & a pipe inside the wall had broken. I wish I had something like this to show the seller quickly so we could make a quick decision & save their first floor. Unfortunately, this type of software was not available then, and the first floor ended up needing to be completely redone.
- Share Special events with Friends & Family. How many times do you wish you had the ability to share a special moment in video format with friends & family on your Facebook Page? The Ustream Mobile App allows you to do such a thing really easily.
There are tons of other great ways that you could use the Ustream Mobile App. So what do the videos look like from the Ustream Mobile App on an iPhone 3G? Here is a short video I did as a test to see how it worked. While the video quality isn't the highest possible, it is fairly decent & the audio is very good. Take a moment & watch:
